That Teenage Feeling

Over the past decade or so, the National Association of Basketball Coaches has been pushing a concept called "Guardians of the Game." You may recall a preseason tourney played under that banner in recent years, and maybe your favorite coach was given a prestigious award of the same name (a GOGgy?). ...

Sportz Make You Stupid

Sports are great. Actual participation is awesome, but watching other people do sports is still pretty good. These days, anybody can watch sports without being there at all -- anytime, anywhere and in any state of undress they choose. This is truly the age of miracles and wonders, and it's all thank...

Failures of Imagination

Back in the late 1990's, I was one of those people who thought that the internet would save the world from itself. I honestly believed that limitless information would lead to limitless knowledge, and that our new generation of enlightened master thinkers would transcend manipulation. What I didn't...

...And Then We Moved The Capital

Dayton, you had a good run. There are so many reasons why the Birthplace of Aviation was the first capital of Hoops Nation. No other place can match its fan awesomeness-to-population ratio; the University of Dayton Arena will always be packed, no matter if the Flyers are 28-1 or 1-28. Since the At...

Emotional Investments

Do you mind if I talk baseball? Just for a second. This is a decidedly American League Central-centric website. I've been a supporter of the Twins since I discovered baseball in 1983. Our new compatriot Damon Lewis, who you'll meet next week if you haven't already, is a lifelong Tigers fan. So it ...

The ESPN Years

History, as Winston Churchill famously said, is written by the victors. I believe that maxim only holds true for the quick, easily-understood sweeps of human affairs, the kind in schoolbooks and on multiple-choice tests. Interesting failures have more to teach us about the trajectories of empires an...

The Old Ways

I've often wished that college basketball would somehow become a year-round pursuit, that it would stop disappearing in April and returning in November. (Or, for some, the following March.) But not like this. I don't remember a summer with so much college basketball news. Our Game never left the na...

Prologue: Everything's Different Now

PAWTUCKET, R.I., October 21 -- On Monday, March 23 at four a.m. Central, on the dot, my cell phone alarm woke me from a two-hour nap. I was behind the wheel of a rented Hyundai Elantra at a rest area alongside the eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 in Wisconsin. I was en route from Minneapolis, the ...

Checking in from Headquarters

INDIANAPOLIS -- We're all mature grownups. We can be totally honest here, right? We've all waited seven months for college basketball to return. When it did come back, we got three days of pre-planned, pre-scheduled blowouts, all in the name of video games and cancer research. Sub-Red Line teams w...

INDIANAPOLIS -- We are a species inhabiting a strange planet. Every one of us is predisposed and pre-wired to seek patterns, which help us find similarity and sense. Patterns remove us from the fear of disorder and meaninglessness, and give us comfort. We can choose to model the world in simplisti...

Mid-Majority D.I.Y., Part 4: Food

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- It's been a busy first few days on the road. Not the kind of busy that makes for compelling narrative, though. Much of what we've been dealing with since we left our Indianapolis headquarters are things like bad web hosting, long e-mails, old business, and a dry, scratchy, hac...

The Mid-Majority Interview: Jon Schaeffer

Jon Schaeffer announces college basketball games. Not just any games -- NJIT games. The broadcasting veteran of over 1,000 games is entering his second year as the Highlanders' announcer, and he called every and ever home contest of the team's 1-30 season in 2008-09. He was previously the play-by-pl...

Hope vs. Hope in Ospreyland

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The boy-girl mascots of the University of North Florida are named Ozzie and Harriet. They're two sea hawks, or rather ospreys, and they wear the numbers 19 and 72 to commemorate their school's opening year. The names are kind of a weird joke, because when UNF started, The Adv...

36 Hours of Hoops: The Glenn Wilkes Experience

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Cures and diseases are so closely related. They often define each other -- a cure is designed to erase a disease, which in turn must build resistance and immunity in order to survive and destroy. As I found out again this summer, booster shots introduce a small amount of the...

Road Report: November 24

NATCHITOCHES, La. -- What I saw yesterday was a lot of asphalt. I set out from Daytona Beach in the early morning, around 4 a.m., and drove 650 miles west. I made it to New Orleans by 5:00 pm Central time, exactly 20 minutes before my rental car was due back. That was the silver Chevy Cobalt I rente...

Assistant Coach for a Night

NATCHITOCHES, La. -- Last week, when I talked to Northwestern State assistant coach Mark Slessinger about my visit to Natchitoches for the Demons' game against Houston Baptist, one of the first questions he asked me was, "Where do you want to sit?" I spent considerable time around the Northwester...

Road Report: November 27

NEW ORLEANS -- Most of the holidays on our calendar commemorate real-life events: revolutions, births, deaths, etc. People knew at the time that history was being made, and they set aside a date so that future generations would always remember. Some are tied to celestial events, and others are pre...

Sunday Funnies: The Pros

Anatomy of a Guarantee Game

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- For schools in conferences like the Big Ten, college basketball means endless tradition and legacy. It means banners and legends and stories passed down from one generation to the next. For fans, the gameday experience isn't limited to the 40 minutes of action; there are pep r...

Road Report: December 1

NASHVILLE -- In most of Hoops Nation, halftime at a small-conference basketball game is when you grab a snack from the concession stand, get in line for the toilet, or chat with folks. Maybe even all of the above. That's certainly not the case in the Mid-South. In Tennessee and the Carolinas, al...

Wofford at Western Carolina (Southern)Ramsey Center - Cullowhee, NC7:30 EST Let's see if I remember how to do this. There's a game, there's a night, a preposition and a bunch of exclamation marks... easy enough, I suppose. Our make-believe G!O!T!N! production crew is off to the hills of Carolina t...

Both Sides Now

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- When I arrived at Tennessee Tech's Eblen Center, head coach Mike Sutton was waiting for me. He was stationed next to the pass desk; with my head down, I walked right past him and his motorized wheelchair. When he finally got my attention, he extended his hand, a meaty hook wit...

It's been five years and a day since I spent half an hour writing up the last one, and if people remember it, they either have been spending time in the archives...

Road Report: December 9

NASHVILLE -- In the various regions of Hoops Nation, there are regional customs and rules that specifically dictate to whom people are nice, exactly how much they're nice to them, and when. In the Deep South, where I spent much of November, everybody's nice to you until you're not around. In the N...

Road Report: Tales of the CPIA

Ever have one of those months? Not about one of "those months," not the vague, indefinite bad stretch of luck the phrase usually implies. I am talking about an oddly specific month. Maybe what I really mean is "that month." You thought you had everything in line -- planning, good health, infrastruc...

The Mid-Majority Interview: Rick Byrd

Rick Byrd has coached at Belmont University since 1986, and brought his program to national prominence with three consecutive Atlantic Sun tourney championships. As a No. 15 seed in 2008, the Bruins suffered a near-miss against Duke, losing the lead in the final minute of a classic game. Despite ret...

Virtual Home Games

Schools like Tennessee Tech and Northwestern State, from conferences like the Ohio Valley and the Southland, spend much the first two months of the season trading humiliation for money in guarantee games. But those opportunities usually disappear when teams move up to the next level, out of the deep...

Road Report: Greetings from... Spartanburg!

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- In the South, it's hard to find a place that's not overrun with SEC this or ACC that. There are very few cities and towns down here that don't bleed some weird color. But tucked into the upper nublet of South Carolina, at the intersection of two important Interstate highways, ...

Mid-Majority D.I.Y., Part 5: Truck Stops

The road is full of questions, mysteries. Why are three-digit Interstates that start with even numbers loops, the ones with odd numbers spurs, and why can't they ever follow their own rules about that? What does "certified business location" mean? Jackie Robinson, Christopher Reeve, Michael J. Fox...

Bubble Friction

Every year around the holidays, a team south of the Red Line unleashes a surprise stretch of inspired play. Upset kings can spring up from any corner of Hoops Nation. One year, it could be Rhode Island, Nevada, Pacific or Davidson. Or in 2009, it could be William & Mary, Portland, Charlotte or Weste...

Road Report: Athens and Evansville

INDIANAPOLIS -- If you were a young boy once, or just a 1990's sitcom character, you probably passed odd hours engaging in the classic game of playground speculation -- who would win? Who'd prevail in a fight between Superman and Spiderman? The Incredible Hulk of the Green Giant? My dad or your dad?...

The Mid-Majority Interview: Tim Capstraw

There's no other way to introduce our subject; Tim Capstraw is a Mid-Majority god. A Red Line legend. We offered homage all the way back in Season 1, after Game 59 of the 100 Games Project, but it took us five years to properly pay tribute, by letting the man speak in this space. Mr. Capstraw was t...

Assistant Sports Information Director for a Night

But whenever anything goes wrong, people act like it's the end of the world. Sports information directors are expected to be perfect, t...

INDIANAPOLIS -- What is the Sports Bubble? Can you see it? Would you recognize it if you could? Does it have a smell, touch, taste? Can its movements be tracked with GPS or radar? We know it exists, we know that. But in what dimension, on what plane of consciousness? There is no sole point of foc...

Road Report: A CPIA Christmas

INDIANAPOLIS -- Many stories are bolstered by a strong sense of place. Locations can affect and shape the motivations and actions of the humans that move within them, so much so that they become characters themselves. I don't know how many stories out there contain three-and-a-half star airport ...

The Beautiful Season, Part 2

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- One more drinker's holiday, and the calendar will flip. Many Americans are spending this week in silent fear of what's on the other side: a return to the bleak routine of five-day workweeks, the gray skies of short days, and January bills from December's illusions of prosperity. O...

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- The date was December 21, 2007. The place: Manhattan College's Draddy Gymnasium.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- There's a city that's 136 miles south down the Hudson that might be in an "Empire State of Mind," but this is the Empire State of Reality. Most of the laws and budgets that New York City must live with are written up here, in New York's true capital. Albany is one of the most impor...

Road Report: Trying Hard Now

PHILADELPHIA -- I was only four years old when Rocky was released. Even at a young age, I had an idea of its cultural impact; my mother kept a poster of Sylvester Stallone, muscles taut under a green tank top, in the downstairs bathroom. I didn't see the movie until I was a teenager in New York City...

PHILADELPHIA -- Malik Rose asked me to go to Drexel. Not in person, but through a TV set. It was a somewhat elegant request, though -- it came in the form of two-point dunk shots and sweet jumpers, as he led the Dragons to a stunning 12-over-5 upset over Memphis in the first found of the 1996 NCAA...

PHILADELPHIA -- On June 6, 2001, the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 107-101 in overtime. It was Game 1 of the NBA Finals, and the Allen Iverson-led Sixers catapulted to a quick series lead. It was a promising harbinger of a championship, since the game was out west, on the road. Ph...

Mid-morphosis

The "meta-" prefix has its roots in Greek, and its etymological root just so happens to have sprung forth "mid-" as well. The original preposition meant, among other things, "with."
