ACC Recruiting Roundup-11/12/17

So we are currently in the early signing period, as of right now there have not been any surprises. All verbals have been honored as far as I know. Noone has flipped, or done anything shady. Outside the ACC, I think the only guy to not sign his NLI is Brandon Williams who is verbally …

Temple Gibbs is everything I thought he would be.

When I am correct, I am typically quite flamboyant about it. It is mostly because it happens so infrequently. I just finished up watching Notre Dame beat Depaul by 14 in Chicago, and my boy TJ Gibbs did not disappoint. You may remember that I chose Gibbs as my #1 breakout player in the ACC …

Opening Night Game Notes, Who Impressed and “Jamie, We’re Sorry”

Anyone want to guess who impressed? Ha... There were 12 ACC games being played last night, so I had to do a bit of jumping around. Duke and UNC were never in any real danger so I kind of back burnered those teams, though UNI kept it respectable like I knew they would. Duke came …

ACC Opening Weekend Preview

It's here! It's here!! Finally, after roughly eight months, college basketball returns tomorrow with a huge slate of games. The ACC alone has 20 games this weekend with six teams playing two games and Duke is actually playing on back to back nights. Florida State is the only team that won't play, they open their …

Don’t you, Forget about me, don’t don’t don’t, don’t you….

With the current state of the College Basketball universe it's easy to forget about some guys that are lost in the shuffle of free agency, injuries and academic situations. A year is a long time in the day of the 24 hour news cycle. I wanted to touch on some fellas who are going to …

10 for Tuesday, on Monday. Predictions for College Basketball 2017-18

I am so excited about the return of College Basketball this week that I am going to step outside of the ACC for a few days and put out some thoughts on the college basketball landscape as a whole. Some teams I am not quite sold on, some players I love, some rankings I just …

GT suspends 2, Duke suspends 1, Could Brian Bowen actually play?

THE FOX IN PASTNER'S HEN HOUSE Well, it happened a little bit later than we thought it would, but Georgia Tech did in fact suspend its two best perimeter players, Tadric Jackson and Josh Okogie. I said in last Fridays post that the Jackets were going to suspend two players in 24-48 hours, it turned …

NCAA gets an easy layup for the win. Predictably blows it.

You would think that what when a company or organization sees that it is no longer viable, no longer useful, it would jump at any lifeline thrown its way. Roughly seven weeks ago it came to light that the NCAA drug its feet in approving Houston men's Head Coach Kelvin Sampson the ability to deliver …

ACC Recruiting Roundup 10/29/17

Quick one today, sometimes that is just how it rolls. Right now things are as quiet as the Breslin Center the other night when Bridges took that fall. I sometimes prefer it that way so I can concentrate on the players involved a little bit more. Notre Dame hosted Noble Days on 10/27 for an …
