Former U.S. President George W. Bush got to watch UIC basketball in person during the same exact week that torture dominated the headlines. Specifically, the torture carried out during the Bush 43 administration. So I guess it’s fitting that Bush 43 got to witness UIC Flames basketball first hand. Watching them is an unpleasant experience.
W. was at sold out Moody Coliseum in Dallas as team that doesn’t get Ws very often got man-hanlded by the home side, SMU.Follow paulmbanks
“Our effort was not up to standard tonight which i take very personally,” said Northwestern Coach Chris Collins after losing at home by 13 to a middle tier MAC team.
“I can’t explain it. If I had an answer for it I would tell you guys. We got out-everythinged,” he continued.

Collins and the Wildcats getting dominated at home by Central Michigan is troubling, but it’s just one of many very bad losses that Big Ten basketball has suffered this non-conference season. Let’s break it down.Follow paulmbanks

Embattled and currently injured Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall certainly needs to be a part of the upcoming Chicago Bears house cleaning.
Because he’s hurt, and therefore in the background right now, we forget that he’s also yet another personality contributing to the systemic problems in Halas Hall. Marshall wore out his welcome with two teams (Miami and Denver) before he got to Chicago. And after that embarrassing home loss to one of his former teams, (the Dolphins) and the fracas that ensued afterward, it became clear that B Marsh needs to part ways with his current team as well.
So let’s cover the whole revamping that we’re likely to see once Black Monday gets here in 11 days.Follow paulmbanks
