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.

D’Angelo Russell looks like a top 3 NBA pick (Phil Jackson sees it)


Phil-Jackson-NY-Knicks-coaching-search

New York Knicks Executive Phil Jackson made some very brief comments — about D’Angelo Russell while scouting Russell in the Ohio State-Nebraska game.

“He’s a great-looking kid,” Jackson said. “Great prospect.”

Pretty bland and innocuous, right?

WRONG.

VIDEO: Chris Collins gets ANGRY, LOSES IT vs Ohio St


chris collins northwestern basketball

In the words of Eminem: “just lose it. AH AH AH AH AH.”

“Go crazy AH AH AH AH AH.”

“alright now lose it, AH AH AH AH AH.”

That’s exactly what Northwestern Wildcats Coach Chris Collins did after the referees blew a call that possibly could have swung the momentum of tonight’s 69-67 loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Watch the Vine below as the Buckeyes Shannon Scott commits an obvious goal-tend (that wasn’t called) on NU Guard Tre Demps.

Old footage of Ohio State icon Woody Hayes discussing drug addicts


Ohio-State-logo-woody-hayes

Ohio State football is celebrating its 6th national title and the first since 2002 today. If you’re a Big Ten fan who hates the Buckeyes (and no one is judging/blaming you for doing so) you have to admit how cool this is for the Big Ten. It’s literally the real life college football version of Lou Brown, the Cleveland Indians Manager in Major League telling his team:

Ohio State vs Oregon leads 20 most watched programs in cable history


Ohio State buckeyes

As I wrote yesterday morning, an 8 team playoff is inevitable. And soon. When any product is this marketable, and profitable, you are guaranteed to see more of it. Ohio State versus Oregon last night was the most viewed program in cable history. Below you’ll see the top 20 list (chart below).

Notice that it’s all ESPN and it’s all college football and Monday Night Football. This just gives more credence to Bill Walton’s idea that ESPN is really in charge when it comes to the collegiate gridiron.

Cardale Jones should declare for the NFL Draft NOW!


cardale-jones

Cardale Jones need to follow the Matt Leinart/Jake Locker/Matt Barkley rule and leave school when your NFL draft stock is trading at its highest. Strike while the iron is hot! Sure, Locker ended up getting drafted pretty high, but it was still lower than it would have been had he left early like he was supposed to.

It’s funny how two USC quarterbacks comprise the “you gotta leave while the getting is good” rule, but hey Cardale Jones didn’t come to Columbus to play school. He’s made that clear already.

Ohio St.’s Joey Bosa: #1 overall pick in 2016 NFL Draft?


joey-bosa

Ohio State Defensive End Joey Bosa is the safest and most legitimate NFL prospect playing in the NFL national title game. That includes even Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. Bosa is that blue-chip a prospect. The Big Ten hasn’t had anyone taken in the top ten since 2008. (Although they did provide the 11th overall selection both last year and in 2009).

The top ten streak will end this April when Nebraska’s Randy Gregory hears his name called; possibly in the top five.
