Villanova Recruits

April 15, 2016
By

As has been the case for many seasons now, when a team wins an NCAA basketball championship they don’t have to rebuild the next year–they just re-load.  This seems to be the case for Villanova.  They will be losing Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu from their championship squad.  However, they have 2 recruits coming...

Coaching Switches

I was surprised to see that Vanderbilt University is expected to hire Valparaiso Coach Bryce Drew as its new basketball coach.  Drew, of course, is remembered for his playing career at Valpo where he played for his dad.  He would replace Kevin Stallings, a player for Purdue University, who now becomes the Pittsburgh basketball...

More on NCAA Tourney

April 7, 2016
By

Yesterday I proposed a system for determining the 64 teams for March Madness.  I have a couple of stipulations that would go with this system. First of all, no matter how many teams a conference has, they would play an equal number of conference games.  For example, the Big Ten would either play each...

By

In some businesses, women are still treated like second class citizens.  This is not my view, but simply one that is reported constantly by certain media.  This is not the case when it comes to sideline reporters in football and basketball these days.  The NFL, the NBA, and the NCAA all use ladies as...

Boys High School Volleyball

April 1, 2016
By

I was recently reading the Cincinnati Enquirer, and I noticed an article on high school boys volleyball.  Most of the bigger high schools in Ohio still play this sport.  I am not sure if any schools in Indiana do.  It is not an IHSAA sanctioned sport. When I was teaching and coaching at Whitewater...
