NC STATE crushes Duke, CJ Leslie looks on…

The Red Blazer strikes again

Notes from the game:

  • No question that this season has shown mass improvement from the previous two in terms of intensity, hustle and pride exhibited by the Pack, however that has seldom resulted in the full 40 minutes needed to beat a quality opponent….until last night.  The Pack was focused and aggressive from start to finish.  NC STATE played as if they believed they were the better team and it showed.

Many larger (arguable) sites have run stories on Mr. McBowling Pin already.  Consider this supplemental.  And a bit traitorous considering my special lady got her papers from there.

Best WR in the Nation

The Heels left Durham with a W, which begs the question, does a win in the team’s only rivalry game make the season a success?  Short answer – no.  Longer answer after the jump.

The Most Relevant Preseaon College Football Poll Has Been Revealed…

Darren McFadden graces the cover of EA Sports' NCAA 2009

EA Sports’ NCAA Football 2009 rankings.  I guess I should clarify this a bit.  You see, there are a lot of things that I think need to be changed about college football, and one of the first things I’d do as dictator is abolish all preseason polls; or at least their obvious, arguably inappropriate influence on the only rankings that really matter in the end: The final BCS standings. 

Ask yourself if LSU could still make the 2007 BCS Championship Game, after two losses over their last 6 regular season games, if they’d started the season ranked 8th or 13th, for example, as opposed to 2nd.  The big two preseason polls, as well as all the other media polls out there, pollute the college football landscape by gifting certain anointed teams an advantage based on what is essentially, somewhat arbitrary, conjecture.  I mean, let’s face it, these things come out well before any team has even sniffed a competitive playing field.  What legitimate basis do  the voters have to rank any team at that point?

So, just how long were Dell and Stephen Curry’s games of HORSE?

March 24, 2008

I played HORSE with my dad when I was a kid.  It was fun.  We were usually done in 30 minutes tops.  Something tells me that sufficiently similar father-son bonding experiences are completely foreign to Dell and Stephen Curry.

You'd look like this too after being stuck on "O" for 2.5 hours...

It's easy to forget that Stephen Curry isn't a 9 year old, middle school phenom...

If only this were Greg Paulus, all would be right with the world

Of course, I suppose Greg has taken some similar spills, or perhaps flops, himself, though I’m almost certain none of his had anything to do with butter on the court…

After watching Duke Houdini their way out of what would have been a rather embarassing defeat at the hands of 15 seed Belmont, one has to wonder:  Is Duke starting to slip, or have they already fallen?

The Duke of old?The Duke of, erm, new?
