    March Madness: Ranking The Sweet 16 Matchups

    The first couple rounds of the NCAA Tournament is almost bulletproof. With so many games, and now the ability to actually see all of them, rarely do we come away disappointed with the first weekend of games.

    Cougars Stun Memphis, Quiet Doubters For a Bit

    The Houston Cougars had no business being on the same court with the Memphis Tigers. The Cougars had no business leading at the half. The Cougars shouldn't have been leading at the midway point of the second half. But most of all, the Cougars really should not have been the one's protecting a lead ... More >>

    Cougars Devour Tigers To Stay Undefeated

    They played a football game at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday morning. But for most of the UH-Memphis game, there was confusion as to whether it was American football being played, or soccer.

    Rice and UH Pitchers Do a Little Showing Off at C-USA Tourney

    The Wait Is Finally Over!!: Way-Too-Early Odds On March Madness 2014 Are Out

    As is the case in almost everything in 2013, the shelf life for enjoyment of the 2013 NCAA men's championship game (a thrilling 82-76 Louisville win over Michigan) was a total of about five minutes before we started looking ahead to 2013-2014.

    Depleted Owls Stun Cougars

    The Rice Owls defeating the Houston Cougars 79-69 on Wednesday night wasn't surprising. Or rather, it shouldn't have been surprising.

    Rice Owls Play The Game of "What If?"

    The story is not that the Memphis Tigers defeated the Rice Owls 77-51 on Wednesday night. That was to be expected. The story's not that Rice struggled shooting the ball. That's a season-long pattern. The story's not really about the game the two teams played on Wednesday night. The story's more ab ... More >>

    If Any School Deserves The NCAA Death Penalty, It's Got To Be Penn State

    If ever a major collegiate football program deserves the so-called NCAA death penalty, it's got to be Penn State. The myth of Joe Paterno and his ethical football program has been blown out of the water, and the least the NCAA can do is put this program out of the misery of college sports fans. For ... More >>

    The NCAA makes me chuckle sometimes.
