Chet Coppock killed in Georgia car wreck – he was one of a kind
April 18, 2019

Chet Coppock was bigger than life, and part of the best talk radio lineup I ever heard as the Sportstalk component on The Loop, AM1000 in Chicago. Often wearing a full length mink coat, Coppock was a unique presence in Chicago sports media – boastful, loud, and connected, he was the voice of record during the […]

Paul George’s Thunder are failing to compete in the playoffs – again
April 17, 2019

Paul George is not as valuable a player as PG-13 is as a brand, and that’s just the way George likes it. The OKC Thunder forward had a typical line last night – 27 points and seven boards in a 114-94 loss to the Portland Trailblazers.  The Thunder now trail Portland 0-2 in their first round […]

Indiana to put names back on football jerseys because fans need them
April 16, 2019

Player names are returning to Indiana Football jerseys, and that is a very good thing. For the record, at the time of the change a year ago, I was a big fan of taking names off the jerseys.  Favoring the collective over the individual is the principle lesson of football, so it made all kinds […]

Why the hell was Will Wade reinstated by LSU; What’s a guy have to do to get fired?
April 15, 2019

It’s impossible for a reasonable person to read the transcript of a phone call recorded by federal wiretap between LSU head basketball coach Will Wade and shoe company pimp Christian Dawkins and not conclude Wade was at least aware one recruit was being paid to commit to the Tigers. Here’s the most damning part of […]

Services like 247 Sports and ESPN have Quinones ranked anywhere between […]

Problem with Romeo Langford’s legacy at Indiana is we don’t know him – at all
April 10, 2019

Romeo Langford is an enigma.  He’s inscrutable.  Mysterious. On the basketball court, he has very clever hands around the basket, silky smooth movement, and he’s become an improved defender.  His shooting lacks consistency, but averaged 16 points per game.  We saw all of what Romeo with our own eyes. What we never saw or heard was the […]

Indomitable and smiling – Indy’s Kyle Guy is a college basketball champion
April 9, 2019

Virginia won the National Championship last night, and so Kyle Guy is a champion. Guy is a graduate of Lawrence Central in Indianapolis and alum of the Indiana Elite summer basketball program, so basketball fans in central Indiana have seen a lot of Guy over the years. He’s the same kid as a junior, and […]

Caring around college basketball’s greed and corruption is a fool’s errand – just watch and enjoy!
April 8, 2019

College basketball is being tested by greed. The NCAA is greedy. Coaches are greedy.  Players are greedy.  Everyone wants more. Media money has flooded college basketball’s ecosystem, and what was once a quaint extracurricular activity among college students has exploded into a multi-billion dollar showcase of competition for coaches covetous of millions available for teaching […]
