Is it time to blow up the NCAA?

Zach-Maynard-california-2012

Hey there ACC fans. Over the last few days I have been thinking long and hard about what to do with the way intercollegiate sports is run. When I have been reading and discussing with people all of the news coming out of college sports I have come to this conclusion… The current model that …

Baylor deserves nothing less then the DEATH PENALTY

th

I don’t understand how Baylor University still has a football team. I don’t understand how they still have an Athletic Department. I don’t understand how Baylor is still part of the Big XII. They are an embarrassment to the academic institution of Baylor University. Now, Baylor is no novice to disturbing scandals within it’s athletic …

Here we go again with Notre Dame and conference affiliation

150115083937-notre-dame-football-1024x576

Well…. Here we go again! It seems that this happens every year and every year it never happens. This time it was Tim Brando on friend of All Sports Discussion, Ethan Moore and Nick Burch’s radio show Louisville Sports Live. Mr. Brando, believes the landscape of college football is changing, and Notre Dame will change …

The NHL has the best playoffs…. and it’s not even close

nhl-stanley-cup-playoffs

Good Sunday to you ACC fans, I know very few of you readers out there actually care about the NHL playoffs. Let’s be honest, the majority of the ACC resides in areas where the NHL has little or no impact on the sports landscape. There are a few exceptions, Pittsburgh, Boston, Syracuse, and Washington (I …

What do we want from our sports coverage?

ESPN1

As we all know, this week has been a rough one for ESPN on-air talent. A lot of the people who we saw, get laid-off in real time via Twitter (which was weird watching people announce they had been let go) and the reaction from people got me to thinking. What do we want from …

If Boston College is to turn around their athletics, they took the first step today…

Steve Addazio

Hi all you ACC fans out there… If you haven’t already heard, Boston College has hired it’s new Athletic Director, Martin Jarmond. Now, for those who don’t know who that is or why this is important let me explain. Martin Jarmond was the deputy athletic director at Ohio State University. More importantly Jarmond was in …

Well, here we go again – Thoughts on UNC and NC State threat to leave ACC (House Bill 728)

newaccbrand

Hello All, Well, here we are again! The North Carolina General Assembly has decided to throw some potential chaos into the ACC and college sports in general. For those who haven’t heard, Mark Brody (Republican District 55 Anson Co. Union Co) has introduced House Bill 728. The importance of HB 728 is that it states …

Does Division I football as we know it survive?

Watson-300x168

We are a day out since the NCAA passed some new rules that effect college football. The first rule is the early signing period, which allows for an early signing day. That “early signing period” allows kids to sign their LOI in December instead of February. This rule just allows for coaches to cherry pick …

It’s the conferences that need the spotlight instead of the NCAA

Kennard

As the glow of college sports for most fans fades away, I came across a story posted by The Comeback. In this story, The Comeback rightly shines the light on the big business that is college athletics. The story, gives the example of the College Football Playoff and the”Playoff Premium” package. There is a problem …

The NCAA won’t go to Las Vegas… Why???

Kennard

As I followed along as Mark Emmert’s news conference this evening from the Final Four, I noticed a what seems to be a throw away topic. Emmert stated that Las Vegas “will not be eligible for this round.” This got me to thinking. Why does the president of the NCAA believe that Las Vegas will …

NC State hires Kevin Keatts and we approve.

keattsncsu

I will admit it, I LOVE the Kevin Keatts hire at NC State. As I went through Twitter, the sense I got was disappointment. Now, I am not sure if the disappointment that I felt was due to the news that had broken earlier in the day that Sean Miller, Archie Miller’s brother, was advising …

It’s time for the ACC to step up in this year’s Big Dance.

newaccbrand

As we sit here on the eve of the First Four, games in Dayton we can look back on the college basketball regular season. We have heard, and I believe, that this years ACC basketball conference was the best basketball conference ever. There were arguments made that it was the best basketball conference EVER! That …

The ACC tournament should rotate but not to where Boeheim said to

ASDPromopage_10

So, here we are again. Listening to Jim Boeheim complain again and again about how the ACC needs to give up on it’s roots and only play the ACC tournament in BIG media markets (and then getting absolutely crushed by the City of Greensboro’s twitter account). .@AdamZagoria @ACCSports We kindly disagree. But I guess you …

The Business of the NCAA Tournament

subDUKE-articleLarge

To me, this is the best time of year. All of those small schools punching their tickets to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. We see student bodies rush the court upon winning their Conference Tournaments excited to make the Big Dance! We know that for the most part, a lot of these small conference winners …

NC State Fan base isn’t wrong the media is

mark-gottfried-jerome-carpenter

It has been 2 days since Mark Gottfried was fired by NC State. If you only follow the national basketball writers, you would think that Mark Gottfried was the greatest coach NC State has ever had. Jay Bilas used his twitter account to applaud Gottfried for making 4 NCAA tournament fields, 2 NCAA tournament wins, …

Who are coaching candidates that NC State basketball should look at?

mark-gottfried-jerome-carpenter

Well, as everyone has seen Mark Armstrong’s report about the future of Mark Gottfried and the NC State basketball program. Now, it should surprise no one that the school is denying the report of the firing. But, as we all know, that’s what schools do, they deny until the season is over then make the …
