The NCAA tournament begins today with the First Four games tonight, which will even out the bracket to a clean 64-team bracket that we have all become accustomed too. This year, every game will be on television, and today’s matchups will be shown on truTv. I know I am not alone in trying to find [...]
This is a post I’ve been waiting a while to write; I’m glad I finally get to share it with you. Welcome back, first of all. It’s nice to type in my old digs and not merely have it be a podcast update. So, the good news: the site is expanding, and in a fairly [...]
Mike DeCourcy of Sporting News was kind enough to join me yesterday.
Before I deliver the link, few things.
After having to step away from CHJ for about a month, your editor and publisher is back full force — with some news regarding the site, too.
CHJ’s brief moment in the spotlight was another thing that’s making this the best March ever.
I spoke with Jon Jaques and Louis Dale by phone from their hotel room in Jacksonville on Friday night. Neither is nearly as content as you’d expect them to be after ending the Ivy League’s 12-year drought in The Tournament.
If you want to listen now, click here. Also, all episodes are now available on iTunes as well, so feel free to subscribe and up my numbers. Do it even if you don’t listen but are a reader of the site! Just indulge me, OK! Fool me, fool me … Topics addressed in the newest [...]
If you’d like to listen now, you can click right here. I’m putting this post up Sunday night. iTunes is being a little prickly, so it may not enter into the store for a few hours now. Topics discussed: • What teams would match up best against Louisville in the NCAA tournament? • Do the [...]
You can listen here. Or search “College Hoops Journal” on iTunes and it should come up. It’s my longest podcast to date, which doesn’t mean much, as it’s only the third podcast I’ve recorded. I’d like to thank Dan Wolken and Jeff Eisenberg for being the guinea pigs in my phone-call-recording process. It worked terrifically, [...]
In the crazy scene immediately following last night’s upset in Columbia, did DeMarcus Cousins revert back to his brash, violent ways? There is an eye-witness report and the victim — a college kid who is calling himself “Stephen” — claiming Cousins threw two punches before being whisked away back to the locker room by a [...]
A few weeks ago, I applied to be the editor of the Yahoo! Sports blog, The Dagger. I did not get that job. However, I did, somehow, convince the editors to allow me to be a second-in-command, so to speak. The man they hired won’t be starting for a few weeks, so I’ll be the [...]
Link to further embarassment on my behalf is inside.
Hope to deliver more of this stuff to you as I continue to hit up games throughout the year. Below, we’ve got John Wall being accosted by a flock of reporters (yours truly included) and Chris Douglas-Roberts speaking to Fox Sports’ Jeff Goodman about how Wall compares to, who else, Derrick Rose.
With all the bad PR the BCS is taking today (and don’t lie to yourself by saying otherwise), is it really that wise for the NCAA to go on the record by stating its openly considering changing the format of the men’s tournament? It’s not. Then again, the NCAA tends to be as wrong as [...]
Like it says above, CHJ is all-inclusive. That means you, the reader, can contribute. So feel free to let your fingers speak up in the posts. After redesigning the site in the fall, I hit a few snags in the programming department. But the site is almost completely retooled and waxed up. Comments are now [...]
Been awhile since UCLA was down like this. Right before Howland showed up, in fact.
Everyone was thinking, This is the year! This is the year the Big Ten finally wins this! Eh … not so much. Here’s why …
The Bruins plunged to a 2-4 record when they fell to Long Beach State earlier today. It’s a certified Code Red for Ben Howland’s club, which was 2-1 before getting off the bus in Anaheim. The two wins came against storied prorgrams: Pepperdine and Cal State Bakersfield. It was the first time in the program’s [...]
