Don't think Dick Vitale reads your mentions on Twitter? Pfft. Take Saturday after the Kentucky-Indiana game. @loganwow typed: @DickieV do you live to hate/rag on Kentucky?
#pathetic. Protecting his slurping history, Vitale shot back: Give me a break - ur players & coaches always thank me 4 the kind words I say about them. Suck it, Logan Wow. Vitale won't stand for your petty bullshit snipes from Twitter-land. (Also, we noticed Dickie is still infatuated with Khloe.)
A brawl broke out at the Xavier Cincinati game on Saturday leaving Kenny Frease bloody and screaming on the court. There was less than 10 seconds left in the game when the fight broke out and the benches cleared. Cincinnati Bearcat player Yancy Gates threw punches and kicks towards Xavier player. The DJ then played "Run This Town" by Jay-Z afterwards. Well played DJ. H/T to @Bubbaprog. JUMP!
Taylor Young is the name of the Michigan State cheerleader who was smashed against the Breslin Center floor last night in a freak cheerleading accident. It was an emotional moment and even Mike Tirico was a little choked up. However, Taylor's father, Charles, got on Facebook and posted what has to be one of the greatest injury updates in the history of cheerleading parenting. You see that booty shot via the AP? Yeah, well dad went there. JUMP!
Remember how Don King used to promote fights in which he was the promoter for both boxers? Remember how Don would always end up with a smile from ear to ear and in the corner of the winner? Yeah, well that's Dick Vitale. Just look at him slurping on OSU's big man, Jared Sullinger, after last night's destruction of Duke. Look at the box score. Duke had nothing on the inside. Dickie is cheating on his Dookies & he's not the least bit shameful. Let's get rolling!
For some strange reason we wondered this afternoon what Bruce Pearl has been up to now that he's no longer a college basketball coach. One search led to Bruce's wife, which then led to the Twitter account of Bruce's busty daughter Jacqui who seems to have a great sense of humor. Imagine the grin on our faces after discovering that 'He loves it in the ass,' shirt in her Twitpics. Brilliant! Of course it was perfect time to point that finger at Bruce. Had to. Sorry, chief.
It's not that Front Row Amy is asking for help to land front row tickets to a Wisconsin basketball game on 12/15 against Savannah St. She's going to the game & tells us she has great seats - just not front row. "But I'll be near the front :)," Amy tells us on Twitter. Listen up all you Wisconsin dorkwads, you make a visit right now to @BrewerGirl823 & offer her a front row seat. This is the Ripken of sports fans. You guys can't possibly let this travesty become reality. JUMP!
Former University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl doesn't have much use for his gigantic multi-million dollar home these days. Since he doesn't have a job, he probably can't afford the mortgage payments either. Pearl's Knoxville home can be yours for only $2.7 million. Ever wondered what it's like to have three laundry facilities in your house. Buy this pad. Here's what you get. JUMP!
The biggest day in the life of Jimmer Fredette's girlfriend, Whitney Wonnacott, is just 3 days away when her boyfriend and future meal ticket is expected to be a lottery pick in the NBA Draft. We've been tracking Whitney's tweets as she gets manicured & pedicured for the moment when ESPN cameras catch her balling over news that Jimmer has just made her a multi-millionaire WAG. Whitney's NBA Draft tweets and photos - JUMP!
We've heard of strange reasons to pick a college and then there is Olu Ashaolu and his thinking behind transferring to Oregon to finish out his basketball career. The food. Olu was smitten with the grub at The Original Pancake House in Eugene. This is quite possibly the first time in the history of recruiting that pancakes and the other hangover food at a greasy spoon has helped a basketball team. You have to read what Olu said about his recruiting visit...after the JUMP!
