Former Louisville star Terry Rozier has experienced his first NBA postseason.  Terry Rozier was not expected to receive any meaningful minutes in his first postseason. The reason?

Entering the 2016 NBA Playoffs, though Rozier was on the Celtics’ active roster, he was not in the regular rotation. Boston has a plethora of above-average guards, including NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas (formerly of the University of Washington). He...Continue reading »

The question that’s on every ACC fans’ mind is when an ACC Network will be created.  Clemson AD Dan Radakovich provided some insight to that very question two weeks before the league gets together for their annual spring meetings.  We’ve heard a variety of stories on this potential network, ranging from nothing happening and the league earning an extra $45 million per year to no change at all.  Still, we should get a little more information on this subject once the spring meetings convene. “I hope at (the spring meetings)...Continue reading »

The football team of course has witnessed four first-round NFL Draft picks the past two years, and they will almost certainly see a fifth player taken this coming Thursday, as former DL Sheldon Rankins looks to be a first-round lock in this year’s draft. Most hardcore Louisville fans are likely aware of this fact. What some of these fans...Continue reading »

Last year, Oklahoma President David Boren re-ignited the conference realignment discussion when he came out publicly and admitted that Big 12 schools would still get an equal amount of TV money if the league added teams.  More importantly, nobody would lose any loot if the Big 12 brought additional teams on board.  That flew in the face of what commissioner Bob Bowlsby constantly said for over 5 years – that current schools would lose money by bringing in new ones.  He also called out the Longhorn Network, calling it “a problem”. “I...Continue reading »
