    ACC Coaches to propose that all D1 teams make 2021 NCAA Tournament

    Even if this proposal moves forward, Syracuse will still be on the bubble.

    2019-2020 General College Hoops Thread

    The level of play in college basketball was just so much better in the late 80s and early 90s than it is now. Back when COVID cancelled the NCAA Tournament, I spent way too much time watching some tournament games from that era. One of my personal favorites is UNLV vs Georgia Tech from the 1990...

    The Ringer

    I really feel for the writers at The Ringer and every other pop-culture site. It is a wasteland out there. I kind of like some of the shorter, pithier lists they've done. That said, they were definitely reaching for straws with their weeklong celebration of the one year anniversary of the end of...

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    Syracuse loses Brycen Goodine, Howard Washington, and Jalen Carey to transfer. That’s...all of their backup guards. Kadary Richmond, come on down!

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    It was a good way to end the season (or as good as can be, given the circumstances). I hope that gives them confidence going into next year. Should be an interesting group, even if they lack a playmaker to really put them over the top.

    Post your favorite March Madness memories in here

    Way too much UConn in this thread. Have to balance it out. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXdxKN8PDZA Malachi's 3 goggles: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4XtT_NliFc And from further back: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuJTcSXgboU

    March Madness to be held without fans

    Booked with what? Anything that involves thousands or even hundreds of people gathering together is going to get cancelled in the next two weeks. [Edit: Sorry, I think I misinterpreted your point.] This is going to be profoundly weird as a TV viewer. Crowd noise makes a huge difference when...

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    Yesterday, Dick Vitale said that Syracuse was one player away from being really good. Unfortunately, that player is Derrick Coleman. I think he's exactly right. If Cuse had one of the three best players in program history, they would be really good. It's just the kind of insightful commentary...

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    Syracuse got a commitment from Dior Johnson, 5-star PG in the 2022 class. This is probably their biggest recruiting win since Melo, though obviously a lot can happen between now and 2022 (the NBA could (probably will) end the one-and-done rule, Dior could decide to play in Australia or China, he...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I would argue that the days of a baseball player reaching that level are gone. Trout hasn't reached that level, and I don't see anyone else in the game today with a chance.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    The article is one thing, but I just watched that video and...what are people upset about? He answered a bunch of questions about an injury in a super banal way. I think he even literally said "I'm just trying to take it one day at a time." His beard is offensive, but I rooted for Buchholz, so I...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Gotta be Trout, right? In all seriousness, I wonder if the third team is a way to get back a starting pitcher.

    The Ringer

    Your premise -- that Bill Simmons can get people (including me) to listen to just about anything -- is exactly right, but I was disappointed in the Re-Heat. This is one instance in which I think Simmons and Ryan needed someone with new insights to join them. They've now spent something like 4...

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    I tried to find issue with this and could not. I think I concur. Hart vs. Autry is a good debate. Regarding this year's team, I want to believe, but I also think they have beaten 3 bad teams and two mediocre ones (UVA and VT). Still, it's better than losing to those mediocre teams. There is a...

    Maybe I was wrong about Buddy. He loses consciousness for a stretch just about every game.
