BREAKING: Tom Izzo Has Resigned

…from the National Association of Basketball Coaches Board. Sorry, I don’t know why that part of the title got cut off. But while you’re here, why don’t you listen to read my bitching about the NCAA.

The NCAA Can Fine Student-Athletes?

I haven’t really followed the whole James Wiseman Saga at Memphis for the past few weeks. I remember hearing word that the top NBA Draft prospect from Memphis was getting suspended and thought “huh, that sucks. At least Cincinnati can continue to be Penny Hardaway’s daddy now that he won’t be a factor.” Well… not so fast my friend. It turns out both match-ups with the Bearcats fall after the NCAA’s date of January 12th to clear Wiseman. Under one condition. Continue reading

Suck it Vegas. 12-point underdog Ohio Bobcats Win Outright 65-52 in Season Opener vs. A10 Powerhouse St. Bonaventure

What a way to open the Jeff Boals Era for the Ohio Bobcats. And who knew he had these dance moves? Not this guy. This is a welcomed surprise. Continue reading

Vanderbiltโ€™s Head Coach Derek Mason Just Cut the Best Wrestling Promo of the Year

Little known fact, but Derek Mason was the wide receivers coach at Ohio, so I’m already gonna credit about 95% of his swag to his time in Athens. Who cares about his time as an assistant coach in the NFL or 4 years on the Stanford sideline? This type of energy and passion is fueled by one thing, and that’s Black Widows at the Pigskin.

You can take the man out of Ohio, but you can’t take the Ohio out of the man.

Seriously though, I love when players get amped up in post game interviews after a big upset. So to see a head coach in the SEC cut a promo better than anything the WWE has written in 5 years after Vandy upset Missouri is welcomed by me.

Here’s to hoping Vanderbilt keeps pulling off upsets throughout the season so we can get more Derek Mason on our TVs.

In a Move That Could Set Cincinnati Basketball Back Fifteen Years, Mick Cronin is a Favorite for UCLA Job

If this happens, I’m gonna lose my goddamn mind. In no universe will I ever blame Mick for wanting to take a huge job like this, and UC would have nobody to blame but themselves. They can’t cry big bad wolf like they have in the past when the Blue Bloods of college football stole their head coaches that were just using the Bearcats job as a stepping stone. Mick is a Cincinnati guy through and through, and if you injected some truth serum into him, I 100% guarantee he wants to spend the rest of his career and life in Cincinnati. All of that changes when you’ve felt disrespected though… Continue reading

Other Than the Day I Tried to Buy the Perfect Undershirt, Was Yesterday the Worst Day in Cincinnati History?

Buying undershirts has always been a hardship of mine. Iโ€™m the perfect mixture of tall and hefty that makes buying shirts nearly impossible. Undershirts are no different in that regard. XXL? Too baggy to wear under a dress shirt and ends up being too short to stay tucked in. XL? After a few cycles through the laundry, I look like Philadelphia Collins from Trailer Park Boys.

Like Many Other College Freshmen, Zion Williamson Only Lasted 33 Seconds Tonight

Not good! Is it possible to feel terrible for Zion Williamson but at the same time want to dance on the graves of all the Duke fans that were already printing their championship t-shirts? Because that’s where I’m at right now. I’ve been amazed by Zion Williamson all season long and despite his terrible choice of colleges, he seems like a good kid and someone I could find myself rooting for as soon as he sheds the Blue Devil jersey.
