Rick Pitino talks, and says exactly what is expected of a self-immersed coach
February 21, 2018

There is an extreme and nauseating arrogance that infests the marrow of some coaches.  Not all coaches embrace a heightened sense of their own importance, but some do. They believe the university that employs them would cease to exist without their presence.  Many learn through absurd self-centered exploits they are simple employees – generously paid employees, but employees […]

Louisville fans need to wise up about the NCAA, and just who erased its history
February 20, 2018

The NCAA is not some patriarchal and autonomous authority figure that governs college athletics.  It’s a member organization that self-polices. So if you are a Louisville fan upset by the NCAA Committee on Infractions rejection of the appeal of findings that employee(s) of your University provided inexpensive prostitutes for players, recruits, and family members, get mad at […]

Notre Dame appeal to NCAA denied, so say goodbye to smart schools self-reporting
February 14, 2018

Notre Dame’s football program will retroactively forfeit 21 wins earned during the 2012 and 2013 seasons because of academic misconduct. The NCAA is able to mete out that penalty only because the Fighting Irish reported its misconduct to the NCAA.

February 14, 2018

Okay, maybe the whole Josh McDaniels debacle worked out exactly the way it was supposed to.

Reich spoke about teamwork, toughness, discipline, collaboration, preparation, character, and other attributes of winning […]

Why is Indianapolis in love with the Colts hiring Frank Reich?
February 12, 2018

I don’t have the answer to that question.  I’m really asking. All I can figure is Indianapolis is too nice to crap all over a nice guy like Colts GM twice in the same week. That’s not to say Reich won’t be a great coach – he might be – but we sure as hell […]

Josh McDaniels decides to stay in New England – the entire city of Indianapolis vomits
February 6, 2018

This is awful. Historically bad news broke a few minutes ago – New England Patriots former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels will return to that position after agreeing to become the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. This is like Bill Belichick becoming the head coach of the Jets before deciding to take the gig […]

Tim Brando was wrong, Indiana had a great reason to hang its head yesterday
January 29, 2018

“Nothing to hang their heads about,” said Fox broadcaster Tim Brando about Indiana losing to Purdue yesterday. Brando is not affiliated with the Hoosiers or he would know that is not true. When Indiana’s basketball program sinks to a depth that allows the Hoosiers to indulge in feeling good about themselves after losing to Purdue […]
