Shaka Smart has to be done, right?

that buyout tho

heís been a loving mess at texas; heís either unwilling or unable to get blue chips to run his press and he doesnít seem like a great xís and oís guy outside of that and has shown no improvement on that end since he was hired, and while heís good at recruiting all his recruits seem to do better in the nba than the ncaa

if itís just based on performance, yeah, he should have been fired a year ago, but i guess the question is who you even go after at this point: beard i guess? scott drew? craig smith? try hiring another vcu coach and hope it works out better this time?

To be honest this is exactly what the frankly stale KU-KSU rivalry needed, also imho KSU deserved it for the punk rear end steal and running off the bench

I'm not sure what's the dumbest take:

Purdue being good
or
Nojel Eastern being an NBA player.

Both takes are exceedingly dumb. Though in fairness, only Eastern's mom thinks he's NBA calibre so she's a bit biased.

Edit: To avoid the dreaded triple post, Purdue somehow won tonight - are still loving terrible though

nojel eastern is really good defensively but hoo boy he's just a complete non factor on offense and doesn't even have a jump shot to maybe keep him on the floor

Yep, that's an entirely reasonable batch of game results. Has anyone ever heard of a 6-team share of a championship banner? I remember Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State all splitting one year.

only penn state and rutgers would be upsets, and not huge ones either

A number of universities are starting to have conversations, mostly still quiet ones, about not bringing students back in the Fall or having in person classes until 2021. Strong likelihood those conversations get a lot louder over the next month.

itís looking like september is the earliest possible time for things to go back to ďnormalĒ (assuming everyone follows quarantine guidelines until then which, uh, yeah)

i think a shorter college season (maybe conference only play plus tournaments followed by march madness) is the best case scenario

I feel like the sad fact is that 90% or more of all potential lottery picks fall in drafts after playing a year in college. But maybe that's just because there has only been like one player at the college I root for that has elevated his stock in one year, and that person is Noted Freak Joel Embiid

i think itís fairly common for guys to play themselves from the top 10 to a no doubt top 3/first overall pick (zion, kat)

embiid was unprecedented but iíve also never seen another basketball player learn how to play basketball in real time on a game-by-game basis much less one learn that rapidly; the player he was opening night and the player he was by the time he hurt his back were totally different

i doubt iíll ever see it again

EDIT: I looked it up. 2009. Kansas football has managed to win three or fewer games ten straight years, which would seem impossible for a P5 school to do on the face of it.

having watched kansas play football i would say not only is it possible, but likely

This is the least bad thing in the article but also somehow not the most ridiculous.

Emma Merriweather, a 6-5 center, said she was admonished by coaches for displaying symptoms of depression, for which she was eventually diagnosed. She was also allegedly told by assistant coach Nikita Lowry Dawkins to snap a rubber band on her wrist when she had a negative thought.

WTF IS THAT SUPPOSED TO DO

thatís a thing you do to avoid depersonalizing but thatís not, like, something your coach should tell you to do; for depression itís basically the equivalent of someone spraying you in the face with water and saying ďno, badĒ
