College Hoops 101 (11-15-10)

I have discovered a dangerous tool that will immensely help my college basketball viewing this season.  Last year my cable provider did not let me access ESPN360.com.  This year, I can successfully get ESPN3.com as it is now called.  EUREKA!

This is scary on so many levels.  Not only can I now multi-task and watch two games at once, but I can also catch any ESPN televised game I want at any time with the replay tool.  This is like locking a sex addict in a room with ten naked girls and telling him to behave himself.

99 in 99: #7 Kansas Jayhawks

Kansas jayhawks cheerleaders

The Kansas Jayhawks were supposed to be the unstoppable beast heading into the NCAA Tournament and practically every expert’s pick to bring home the championship.  Instead, KU was upset in the second round by Northern Iowa and saw their title hopes vanish quicker than Bruce Pearl’s recruiting ethics in the past couple of months.

Despite losing three starters, the Jayhawks reload on talent and should be in Final Four conversations come March; assuming they finally get highly touted freshman Josh Selby’s status straightened out.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors for the 2010-2011 season.  Click here if you missed teams #8-#99.
