Well, isn't that nice...

Duke's coach Krzyzewski doesn't give a shit about your opinions on how many times they have not made it to the Final Four in the last half decade. He just wants to be Cyndi Lauper.

"...if (some student) doesn't go to the Final Four after their four years at Duke, then that's just too damn bad," (Coach K) added. "But our team is going to have fun..."

Hmmm, we need a metaphor on what "fun" could look like for the Blue Devils this upcoming season.

That will do nicely

Who loves you, and who do you love?

We know that some student-athletes may not be the smartest people in school. We know that they need help sometimes. That is why a sports program will have armies of tutors who will travel with the team and give them one-on-one help.

But still, some will cheat. It is inherently in the system. But just how dumb can you be by advertising on the internet for someone to do your term paper?!

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Leading scorer Andy Robinson was suspended for three games by the University at Buffalo on Friday for posting an advertisement on the Internet last spring to pay someone to write a course paper.

Robinson has since completed the paper on his own and apologized, saying, "I take full responsibility and realize I must regain the trust of my teammates, fellow student athletes and coaching staff."

The final countdown (of sorts)

There are few things we love almost as much as college basketball...


Yup, everyone loves air.


Those Iron Chefs ain't got nothing on us!

Our significant others.

[picture redacted by request]

And college football. Oh yeah. And come Saturday we will be doing our annual tradition. Getting as drunk as possible and watching as many games as possible while stuffing ourselves with very bad for you tailgate grub starting at 9 AM! We may even do a liveblog.

So rejoice, citizens. The start of college football means that college hoops is just around the corner.

So, Anthony DiLoreto was headed to Cal Poly SLO on a basketball scholarship. But he allegedly decided to participate in a bank robbery instead.

"Seven-footer Anthony DiLoreto was arrested Saturday at his parents’ Minnesota home for suspicion of participating in a bank robbery earlier that day in Wisconsin..."

So he threw away a full ride to college to get some benjamins? That's crazy. But no citizen, that is only the start. What makes this story so insane in the membrane is the series of events that happened:

* DiLoreto was allegedly seen leaving a nearby station without paying for gas

* A deadly ATV crash occurred by coincidence across the street from the gasoline theft

* There was also an unrelated heart-attack victim in the area

While the police were going bat shit with all that, they managed to pick up DiLoreto along the way.

The charges were a shock to... Mustangs coach Kevin Bromley... Apparently headed to trial on state robbery and gun charges, the would-be Mustang likely won’t make the first day of classes Sept. 15."

Gee, ya think?

I'm bored. Lets shoot someone.

Geez, incoming Kansas freshman Markieff Morris could not even wait for NCAA eligibility to start some basketball player tomfoolery.

"(incoming potential Kansas University basketball player Morris was) accused of shooting an Airsoft rifle BB gun out of his university dorm room...

Markieff Morris, 18, was issued a notice to appear in court after the incident, which the KU Public Safety office said occurred about 11:15 p.m. Saturday at Jayhawk Towers. The suspect was intoxicated, according to a police report.

A 47-year-old woman from Mequon, Wis., was shot in the arm with a plastic BB in the courtyard of the building, police said. She received minor injuries."

How would you feel if you were strolling down the quad on a beautiful day and then all of a sudden...


Then come to find out it wasn't someone like Sherron Collins who you could just brush off the incident because he's so good on the court. It has to be some no name INCOMING freshman not even officially on the team yet!

That would make us mad.

Damn that affirmative action!

Could it be? Virginia is practicing the art of bringing on a less qualified Black man over a more qualified White man?

Laurynas Mikalauskas... was dismissed from the team by coach Dave Leitao on Monday, while he announced that Tunji Soroye will return next season.

...Mikalauskas played in just 20 games last season because of injuries, but averaged 7.1 points and 3.5 rebounds.

The 6-11 Soroye, native of Nigeria, played in two games last season because of an injury and applied for a medical hardship waiver that was granted. He averaged 1.5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 81 career games.

Hmmm, 1.5 over 7.1? Nice.

< /sarcasm>

University of South Alabama guard Domonic Tilford has been imitating Dr. Rockso as of late and was busted for walking around with some of that nose candy.

Domonic Tilford, Kentucky's 2005 Mr. Basketball from Jeffersontown High School, has been indefinitely suspended by the University of South Alabama, the Press-Register of Mobile, Ala., reported.

Tilford was arrested Wednesday in Louisville and charged with first-degree possession of cocaine, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported, citing a Louisville Metro Police report.

Wanna get high?

You know, we have college football coming up which will help us pass the time before basketball starts. At least we have that.

Badgers badgers badgers

So, it seems that Wisconsin leads the nation in binge drinking...

Makes sense. Have you seen what U of Wisconsin students do during games? Swingtown?! WTF?

Sometimes they don't even need the damn band to break out into drunken song.

Tsk tsk.

I'll have a Long Island without the Coke mixer

Have you ever had so much to drink that you went to bed to sleep it off, only to wake up hours later still drunk? University of Southern Indiana's Isaac Stoll has. And he admits he's an idiot to boot.

Isaac Stoll, the former Washington High School guard who recently joined the University of Southern Indiana men's basketball team, is facing charges of driving while intoxicated.

Pike County Sheriff's deputy Kent Johnson clocked Stoll going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone after he had passed a semi truck near the Pike-Daviess county line, according to the report.

Stoll had red, watery eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to the report. After failing various field tests, Stoll agreed to take a chemical blood test and registered .16 (twice the legal limit).

Stoll said he had been looking for a new place to stay next semester with his brother Evan before drinking at a friend of his brother's. Stoll said he went to sleep at Evan's at around midnight or 1 a.m. but had gotten up to go to work for a 7 a.m. shift.

"It was still in my system," Stoll said. "I'd gone to bed. I just got up to come home for work."

And speaking of failing, Arkansas guard Patrick Beverly has been thrown off the team for the entire season for academics?!?!

I mean what did that progress report look like? Did his professors give him all Zs because Fs were too high for his effort? The entire year?! Wowzers...

We love this video. The casual nature of the band just strolling in and playing like they are saying "Fuck you, we've been doing this for 20 years..."
