It’s been a weird couple of months in Columbia, Missouri. Weird in a good way, though. A really good way. Let’s talk it out.
On March 5th, Kim Anderson was fired as head coach of the Tigers, a position he held from 2014-2017. In those three seasons, he was 27-68. That
Things just got very real in Tucson.
Early afternoon on Thursday, April 13, ESPN’s Jeff Goodman broke the news that Arizona’s Allonzo Trier would be returning to Tucson for his junior season. Never a guaranteed NBA draft pick, most thought he would at least declare for the draft without an agent
This is not the real Final Four. It can’t be. South Carolina? Seriously? Oregon? Even Gonzaga? These guys shouldn’t have made it. No way. This wasn’t how the tournament was supposed to play out. There was only one ACC team in the Sweet 16, too. Now that’s definitely wrong. It

Wow, this is the last mailbag of the season. This is kind of emotional. It’s kind of like my senior day (except I’m coming back next year, don’t worry). We also got a new logo, just in time for the end. But it’s awesome! Anyways, I just want to say,
My favorite part of the last week of the regular season is not the best rivalries. It is not the regular season conference title races. It is not bubble teams scrapping out wins to save their season. It’s senior day. Every school has one at some point this week. It’s
Can you feel it? March Madness is inching closer by the day. There’s less than a month now until we tip it off for the greatest sporting event in the world (no, the Olympics don’t count, they don’t happen every year). I truly hope your team does well, but really,
I’m writing this on the tail end of the Press Virginia-Kansas game. Bob Huggins is not going to be happy after this. Turns out Press Virginia can’t handle a press! Ironic! Front to back, though, this has been one of the best games of the year. Two very dangerous teams
What is going on recently? Top 25 teams over the last couple of weeks have been anything but safe, with nine ranked teams falling this weekend alone. It’s been fun, though. Last year, the whole concept of “parity” really dominated the landscape of college hoops, from beginning to end of
What a week. After the past seven days of hoops, I’m ready for March, I’m sure you are as well. That was nuts. 15 of the top 25 teams in the country were handed a shocking L, some of them two. Naturally, we got a big shake-up in the rankings.
The last week was full of upsetting injuries across the country. Maurice Watson, Jr. went down for the year for Creighton with a torn ACL, and OG Anunoby is about to undergo surgery on his knee that will keep him out for the year as well. Dillon Brooks sprained his
What a great week of college hoops. Lots of ranked match-ups, including a Press Virginia throttling of Baylor. I hope they enjoyed their time as Number 1! We're starting to figure out the dividing line between the top teams in the country, and the scrum of teams who will fight
Not a lot of basketball was played between my last column and now, as the mailbag day was now moved to Tuesday, but there was basketball nonetheless. It also felt like kind of a boring week. No one got upset on Saturday, and Purdue beating Wisconsin in West Lafayette is
The first week of conference play has been so exciting. Maybe this is a bit of recency bias, but this has been one of the most fun weeks I can remember in the last few seasons. There’s a lot going on in the world of college hoops, so instead of
I’m in the championship of my fantasy football league this weekend and hoping to win big. I love fantasy football, and fantasy sports in general. I think being able to assemble a team filled with a sport’s biggest stars is a fantasy (weak pun intended) that we’ve all had as
With the non-conference season coming to a close, we will be previewing each of the power six conferences based on what we have learned so far this year and guide you through what to look out for as the season continues.
Here is your guide to the ACC.
