2015-16 preseason Top 25 college basketball rankings


kentucky-wildcats-airheads

Yes, I know the college basketball season just ended but it is still the perfect time to reveal my insanely early 2015-16 Top 25 college basketball rankings.  There are still a ton of x-factors as guys are deciding on whether or not they are going to enter the NBA Draft, players are transferring, and seven McDonald’s All-Americans have yet to make their college decision so consider these rankings a rough draft and expect an update in a couple of weeks.

Here is a list of which players have already announced they are transferring and where. Here’s a list of underclassman who have declared for the draft.

Leave a comment below if you think a team is too high, too low, not getting enough respect, or otherwise have an issue with something.

NCAA investigation of Kansas F Cliff Alexander is agent-related


cliff-alexander-illini-basketball

Perhaps John Groce and Illinois lucked out when Cliff Alexander rejected them? It’s way too early to assume that, but a lot of signs are pointing in that direction. Of course, had Alexander chose the Illini instead of just trolling them on signing day, maybe his freshman year would have gone differently.

Alexander has had a disastrous rookie season, as he doesn’t fill the Jayhawks teams needs. And now he has bigger issues than playing time. His mere eligibility is in danger.

Cliff Alexander’s Kansas career has been a bust thus far


cliff-alexander-illini-basketball

When Kansas brought in Cliff Alexander, the third ranked recruit in the entire nation, they expected a lot more than what he’s produced in his rookie season. Alexander was suspended indefinitely yesterday for what the Athletic Director deemed a “NCAA issue with his eligibility.”

That’s just corporatespeak for whatever “infraction” was supposedly committed in this situation. Remember “infraction” here is defined by the NCAA; and the NCAA is not at all consistent when it comes eligibility rulings. Their laws are extremely arbitrary and capricious.

Details will emerge soon enough, the only information public right now is meaningless legalese. However, even before this latest issue arose, the 6-9, 235 power forward from Curie High School in Chicago was having a disappointing season.

Kansas Jayhawks Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk is very Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk


sviatoslav-mykhailiuk

Once you become aware of Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, your world will never be the same again. We could all use a little more Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk in our lives.

So during this boring lull in the sports calendar, the time between the Super Bowl and March Madness, when even the NBA and NHL teams themselves are looking ahead to the postseason, The Sports Bank brings you a Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk feature story.

Bill Self on Kentucky going undefeated: “not crazy”


bill self

As talented a team as the #5 Kansas Jayhawks are, they really got annihilated by the #1 Kentucky Wildcats tonight. KU Coach Bill Self rolled with it in the post game press conference.

Fresh off a 72-40 beat down, he opened with a little joke:

Kansas Jayhawks will own the Big 12, but are they Final 4 bound?


kansas cheerleaders

Another season, another banner for the Kansas Jayhawks who claimed at least a share of their 10th straight Big 12 Championship. KU does lose three starters but as always, Bill Self won’t be rebuilding this year, but rather reloading. [Read more…]
