How about those Buckeyes getting their asses handed to them in the first half, only to make a huge comeback and grab a share of the B1G title - on MSU's court. Still, the #1 seeds have to be Kansas, UK, Syracuse, Duke/UNC, right? Better ACC performance gets the #1 seed in the West? In NBA news, who was guarding Rajon Rondo yesterday? Is that Jeremy Lin's guy? Rondo only went 18-17-20, giving Faux Bird some softball shorts wood. Let's get rolling!
You want a March Madness photo, punks? YOU REALLY WANT A PHOTO THAT PAINTS A PICTURE OF MARCH MADNESS. DO YOU? Ok, we are stuck at BC HQ watching these basketball games and happened upon this Illinois St. assistant coach. One of you knows his name. Drop us a line. We'd like to properly recognize this guy for those eyeballs. firstname.lastname@example.org
This little kid looks psyched for the Boston Celtics-New York Knicks game today. The other guy in the picture? Not so much. Jeremy Lin struggled in the beginning of the game so there wasn't much Linsanity. Spike Lee showed up in another ridiculous outfit. Doc Rivers gave us his best confused/what the hell just happened face. Steve Novak showed that he just does not miss 3 pointers. JUMP!
The Florida Gators were relentless in making fun of this Kentucky Wildcat team as they rolled into Gainesville this weekend. Students have been camping out since Friday for this game. Anthony Davis was the subject of much ridicule where Gator fans made signs ripping on his notorious unibrow. In case you are wondering, yes the unibrow is moveable. JUMP!
It's no secret that Peyton Manning has been training at Duke this week. Well he showed up for the Duke-UNC basketball game where the winner of the game wins the ACC regular season championship. The Cameron Crazies were are insane as ever. A random Duke fan sung the National Anthem and looked as awkward as possible. Also, we aren't sure what the hell Erin Andrews was wearing. JUMP!
Our boots on the ground in Durham sent us this shot from Cameron Indoor where it was learned that the Duke dance team has a male member and it appears he has some serious sugar in those shorts. What was supposed to be an investigation into the dance team turned into a 'WTF, there's a black dude on the Duke dance team,' post. We're not sure whether he performs during on-court routines. Efforting. Anyway, this has to be a Duke first, right? JUMP!
A very well done 'Ball So Hard' sign made it's way onto College Gameday for the Duke Blue Devils and UNC Tarheels that showed the ending buzzer beater of the time the last two teams met. Of course this is a reference from a Jay-Z and Kanye West song and the addition of Austin Rivers makes this sign awesome. Erin Andrews interviewed probably the palest Duke girl on the face of the planet. JUMP!
Is the downfall of Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom complete? We're not entirely sure, but last year's NBA Sixth Man of the Year just got shipped off to the D-League. Lamar will be spending some time with the Texas Legends, who, decidedly, are not composed of Legends. The Mavs made the move so Lamar could get into mental and physical shape. Ouch! We trace Odom's downfall back to its roots. You probably won't be surprised what we find.
There might be a couple of you old coots reading this who remember March 3, 1962. That was a Saturday morning when you old coots woke up and read that Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 points on the Knicks the night before in Hershey, PA. In Miami it was HUGE news. In Saskatoon, not so much. Thanks to the Internet and newspaper archives we can go back and see how those paginators played Wilt's accomplishment. JUMP!
Via: Amber D. Ginn, 19, attended an East Central girls basketball game on January 17. During the game, she allegedly snuck into the locker room and stole $370 from the lockers of four players. Surveillance video in the hallway outside the locker room helped lead police to identify Ginn as a suspect. According to a court affidavit, Ginn admitted to the theft. She was arrested Tuesday. Just lucky there was $370 in lockers or inside intel? This one smells.
It kinda flew under the radar over the weekend that The Mailman is now making wordy deliveries on Twitter such as this gem about a witches tit in Nebraska. The choice of @TheDeliverer_32 is kinda odd since themailman_32 was available. So who's The Deliverer following? Of course the Huntsman Daughters and Karl Malone Jr. Follow The Deliverer & you'll figure out he likes to call his followers 'grasshoppers.' Why? No idea, but it's keeping us intrigued.
Gotta figure this mask will be auctioned off for charity once Black Mamba's nose heals. Kinda figuring a game-used NBA mask could fetch at least $5k. It's unique, has been on Kobe's face and was used in a 31 point, 8 assist, 7 rebound blowout of the Timberwolves. As for Jeremy Lin, he had a nosebleed last night which pushed him off the NY Post backpage for a white guy. Efforting the last time a white NBA player made backpage. Has to be years. Let's get rolling!
That is a full-page advertorial in today's Crimson White, the University of Alabama student newspaper. Easily the greatest filler ad in Alabama newspaper history & that's even counting daily newspapers. What's the occasion? Oh, the Auburn Tigers are in town for an 8 p.m. EST basketball tip. The Crimson Tide are 19-9, presumably a couple wins away from an NCAA bid & the Tigers are 14-14 & planning Spring Break trips. [Watch live on ESPN3]
BC Spirit Editor Asher sent word today that he was investigating a cheerleader he'd been hearing about at Arkansas State. Not that she'd done anything wrong. It was just that his sources were telling him that there were come wild chicks in the Sun Belt Conference. This is exactly why we hired Asher. He's not just reposting USC Song Girls pics. He's giving the mid-major cheerleaders a chance to shine on the Internet. JUMP!
Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it's the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras's mansion can't compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire? Jump on this one!
While the Lakers are bitching about one thing or another, the Los Angeles Clippers are having a good time and leading the Pacific Division. Yeah, we still don't believe it either, but maybe it's because they're a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand the significance of the Clippers leading anything. Take center DeAndre Jordan, who likes to take photos of his teammates sleeping. Creepy, but also funny. Here are some of the best. JUMP!
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah just had a birthday. He went to St. Bart's to celebrate. Neither of these things are important, though. What is important is who he celebrated with. We don't know her name, but the ugliest dude in the NBA was actually spotted with a fairly hot lass. We can only attribute how this happened to the fact that he's rich. There's really no other explanation. Here's a look. Won't you please tell us more? JUMP!
Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!
Been wondering what former Georgetown legend Michael Sweetney is up to? He's actually alive & playing in the Puerto Rican league. That's his current photo (left) and Sweets in 2010 (right). As you can see, he's been cutting weight. He's listed at 288 pounds. Of course that's generous. This guy actually averaged 15 ppg & 25 minutes played per game in 2011. Does your NBA team need a big body down the stretch? Sweets is all ears. (via @JohnnyNBA)
