What Can The Uber-Talented Kentucky Wildcats Achieve In 2013-14?
The Kentucky Wildcats once again start a college basketball season with the top recruiting class in the country. They once again start a season probably as the favorites to win a National Championship.

Top Ten NCAA Tournament Upsets
Upsets are why we love the NCAA Tournament. We watch games we probably wouldn’t watch if they happened in December hoping the little guy can pull off a big one. Of course, not too many of them happen in the mismatches in November and December because the Goliaths of college basketball play the Davids on […]
Is Bill Self Giving Calipari Some Competition in Recruiting Game?
Andrew Wiggins is going to be playing or the Kansas Jayhawks next season. This changes everything.

Had he picked Kentucky, […]
What Are the Biggest Coaching Blunders in College Basketball History
We have seen some head scratching moments in college basketball this past season. But, this is nothing that unusual. College basketball is full of “what was he thinking” type moments.

Can the Louisville Cardinals Repeat in 2014?
The last team to repeat as college basketball champions was the 2007 Florida Gators. That team got back all of its starting five (the first team ever to win back to back titles with the same starting five). The last team prior to that to repeat was the 1992 Duke Blue Devils. So repeating is […]

Bracket Strategy: Pick a Number One Seed to Win the Tournament
The moral of the story after all is said and done, you want to be the overall number one seed on Selection Sunday. The Louisville Cardinals were that team this year and they were the only number one seed to make the Final Four. They were joined by two number fours and a number nine […]
Rick Pitino: From Kentucky to Louisville How He Built Two Championship Caliber Teams
It is hard to believe, but no coach has won NCAA Tournament championships at more than one school. One would think in 75 years it would have been done by now. Several coaches have been to Final Fours with more than one school. Roy Williams immediately comes to mind as he took the Kansas Jayhawks […]
March Madness: Is It Time the Tournament Took 72 Teams?
In the past, we have pretty much decided that more March Madness is always a good thing. A certain chain of sports themed restaurants/bars recently started running a commercial where a patron was overheard making a comment that he wishes the tournament was bigger, so the bartender grabs his magic remote and presses a button […]
