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 …

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 …

NC State basketball…. How did we get here?

mark-gottfried-jerome-carpenter

As the Wolfpack fan base licks it’s wounds after another blow out loss, this time by 30 at Wake Forest, we are left to wonder how did we get here. When you look at the roster, you see talent up and down that bench. They have a Top 5 pick at point guard who is …

The Greatest Rivalry in College Sports….

UNC_NCState

So, last night we were all invited to watch what is called here in North Carolina, The Battle of the Blues. Like most games in this rivalry, it was awesome. The atmosphere in this rivalry seems to be amazing, the only way I choose to take this game in is from my couch. This got …

newaccbrand

Hello ACC fans, I know this is a sports blog and has nothing to do with politics. However, @Hokiesmash_ASD wrote a very interesting blog post this afternoon where he felt that the ACC headquarters was going to move out of North Carolina due to HB 2. Matthew, correctly argues that the NCAA has pulled numerous …

NC State’s so called AD “problem” shouldn’t be one.

mark-gottfried-jerome-carpenter

I am an NC State fan. I will not hide it, so I understand that my views are colored through this fact. In my fandom I have made a lot of comments in frustration. I have called for the head of the football coach, probably to soon, and I have thrown my hands up in …
