You do layups line and show off your fancy dunks for the crowd, Wisconsin practices diving for loose balls. Bo Ryan playing chess.
Does anyone have an explanation for the Minnesota court by the way? Like, for example, why the hell it’s raised so far off the ground? Is there some sort of benefit I don’t know about that outweighs the risk of players breaking all the bones in their lower bodies? Seems like player safety might be a little more important than some sort of historical nostalgia.
ESPN – The NCAA on Friday has suspended Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim for nine conference games and has taken away scholarships as a result of a multiyear investigation into the university’s athletic programs.
Syracuse’s penalties also include a five-year probation and for the school to vacate all wins in which ineligible men’s basketball students played in 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07, 2010-11 and 2011-12 and ineligible football students played in 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07.
“Over the course of a decade, Syracuse University did not control and monitor its athletics programs,” the NCAA said in a statement, “and its head men’s basketball coach failed to monitor his program.”
The NCAA said that the violation, which were self-reported by Syracuse and dated back to 2001, included academic misconduct, extra benefits, the failure to follow its drug testing policy and impermissible booster activity.
Other violations included impermissible academic assistance and services, the head basketball coach’s failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance and monitor his staff, and the school’s lack of control over its athletics program.
Live look at Jim Boeheim failing to monitor:
All in all, a pretty light penalty for Cuse. They already banned themselves from this year’s postseason which successfully satisfied the NCAA, they already have a monster recruiting class coming in. Considering we’re talking about “multiple infractions” over and EIGHT YEAR period, I think the Orange will take it. Academic misconduct, impermissible benefits, not drug testing, gifts from boosters – all for close to a decade. Hey remember when Bruce Pearl lost his job for having a cookout? Lol NCAA.
YouTube – Of course the kill was intentional!! I accurately predicted the spawn of the player after I killed him for the first time, knew exactly where he was positioned when he shot at me and therefore deliberately ricocheted the bullet of three surfaces to take him out, it was very simple really!
I’m an overly competitive bag of shit so I love everything about this. Love that the guy not only hit the shot and is jokingly pretending he did it intentionally, love how absolutely LIVID the other guy must have been after dying like this, and love how insanely overproduced the video is with the dramatic music and slow mo path of the bullet to really rub it in the guy’s face after the fact. I’d never watch competitive video gaming even though they’re acting like it’s an actual sport these days — spoiler alert: if a fat guy who can’t walk up ten steps without gasping for air can do it, it’s not a sport — but a video like this? All in on it every single time.
For the record if I was the blue guy in this I’d never play Halo again. Losing is one thing, losing like that? Full on “This is BULLSHIT, fuck this game” mode 10 times out of 10.
Fox Sports - The last time we saw Baylor’s LaQuan McGowan, teammate Antwan Goodley was (sort of) attempting to lift him into the air. This is notable because McGowan, at 410 pounds, outweighs Goodley by almost 200 pounds.
The 6-foot-7 McGowan caught a 19-yard touchdown pass in the Cotton Bowl, leading to the celebration with Goodley, but Baylor is hoping for an encore soon. McGowan is working at tight end and H-back for the Bears in spring practice.
“We’re looking at him as kind of a slot and tight end type of guy,” Baylor coach Art Briles told reporters on Tuesday. “He can certainly help us in the run game in those situations. The way we’re looking at it is we’ve got three games in nonconference to kind of feel it out and see what he can do and teach him what to do in live action.”
Quarterback Seth Russell sounds like a fan of the move, too.
“His hands are about as big as my leg, so I can pretty much put it wherever, and he can snag it out of the air,” Russell said.
The first word of McGowan’s bio on the Baylor website is still “enormous” and for fans of unorthodox touchdowns, the news is enormous, too.
“The hardest thing is practicing with him, because we don’t want to get anyone injured,” Briles said.
What the hell does Baylor feed these kids? Feel like their practice sessions are like cattle farms, just lined with troughs full of raw beef and HGH. I mean how else do you end up with 410 pound athletic tight ends/H backs with soft hands and light feet?
How else do you get something like this?
It’s crazytown down there in Waco, like their entire team is made out of Create A Players. Championship or bust.
Daily Mail – It’s been nearly 20 years since she set pulses racing in her iconic red bathing suit on Baywatch. But 42-year-old Carmen Electra is certainly proving she still has a body that can make heads swing around.
The pin-up is currently enjoying a luxurious holiday in the sun-drenched island of Tahiti and has been keeping her loyal army of Instagram followers updated with her every move with a string of racy bikini snaps.
Damn Carmen! Love when our childhood icons stay hot or even improve with age, like a fine wine, but instead of booze it’s a chick we would sneak magazines of into the basement when our parents went to sleep. Playboy, Baywatch, Singled Out. A true legend.
And now at age 42, as good as ever.

Alabama - Members of the Tuskegee and Albany State cheerleading and dance teams were sent home following a fight during halftime of Tuesday night’s SIAC basketball tournament opening round game between their schools at Bill Harris Arena in Birmingham.
The SIAC released a statement Wednesday morning about the incident:
“The obligation to observe basic principles of sportsmanship and fair play extends to all participants at the SIAC basketball tournament. As a consequence of the incident on Tuesday, the cheerleading and dance teams from both Albany State University and Tuskegee University will not be permitted to participate in our tournament for the remainder of the week.”
Love it, love the passion, love the intensity, love everything. This is thing, everybody thinks Alabama is all about college football and nothing else. Websites such as this one constantly perpetuating that myth, that everybody lives and breathes for the Tide and then just shuts down during the off season. Well tell that to the Tuskegee University basketball cheerleaders full out brawling Albany State chicks at the conference tournament. Bashing skulls and snatching bitches’ weaves off their heads all in the name of their squad. Smearing their blood all over the baseline then dropping their new routine right in their face. That’s what it’s all about right there. This is not a democracy it’s a cheerocracy.
Acting hard can get you KTFO! Ben “10″ Nguyen takes the belt from Julz “The Jackal” in under 30 seconds at Nitro 11.
Hi hardo, bye hardo.
So awesome. Nothing better than watching some tough guy act all hard during a weigh in then get absolutely obliterated in the ring. Think it was because he didn’t have enough tattoos?
