NCAA Tournament of the (Previous) Decade

March 14, 2011

NCAA basketball logoNow that the first of a new decade of newly formated NCAA tournament fields has been set, Frump figured it’s as good a time as any to examine the best of the previous decade.

Some of you may recall Frumpzilla’s Top 25 College Football Programs of the Decade – it was a pretty big hit for us.

This undertaking, while in a similar vein, isn’t necessarily intended as a definitive ranking of select college basketball programs from ‘00/’01 – ‘09/’10. We basically just thought it would be interesting to see how college basketball programs would stack up when plotting out each’s NCAA Tournament performance over the course of a decade.

More than anything, we wanted this to be fun. If nothing else, you might learn a thing or two about NCAA Tournament history from 2000 through 2010 – at least quantitatively — so make the jump to see how the NCAA Tournament of the 2000’s plays out…

5 melodramatic press conferences that give Tiger a run for his money

February 19, 2010

Tiger Woods: The ThesbianDon’t let some of these pundits fool you, Frumpsters. Sure, sports naturally lends itself to drama, and the adoring public’s spotlight, for better or worse, typically doesn’t switch off when the lights of the arenas, fields and stadiums that players and coaches occupy in their respective professional lives do, but sometimes people just need to get a grip.

Seriously, we’ve got respected, established journalists out there (who shall remain nameless) shedding tears and using words like “profound” and “deep” in reference to this act Tiger just put on a bit ago.

And, before I get labeled a “hater” or something, let me just say that, before now, I was never particularly fazed by all this Tiger scandal stuff. It was entertaining more than anything, but never completely ruined Tiger’s aura, or whatever, for me.

Now, however, after it became overwhelmingly clear that the most sincere thing at Tiger’s presser was his own level of self absorption (or possibly the look on his mother’s face), he just might be doomed.

But at least he’s not the first to pull a stunt like this, right? I mean, his performance may have been the most Oscar-worthy, sure, but there is precedence, and we highlight a bit of what may have served as inspiration for Tiger here (and after the jump).

We’ve also got the full clip of Tiger’s press conference for those of you that may have missed out, so please do enjoy (regardless of how unfair it all is).

In Game, Between the Legs Dunk (In High School)

Deuce Bello will dunk, between his legs, on unsuspecting midgets...

Deuce Bello will dunk, between his legs, on unsuspecting midgets. Don't test him.

Meet Deuce Bello. He’s a 6’3″, Class of 2011 Wing out of High Point North Carolina. When he’s not mulling over offers from Baylor, Maryland, Oklahoma State and Wake Forest, he’s doing this to poor, unsuspecting high schoolers, or possibly midgets (it’s hard to tell from the video after the Frump).

Okay, so it’s obvious the victims in this clip probably aren’t the most talented competition Bello faces on his D-One Sports AAU tours, but still: It never ceases to amaze me what high school kids are capable of these days. […]
