Buffalo is really, really for real

Best MAC team in a long, long time. Maybe back to the Majerus-era Ball State teams? The MAC used to turn out a team every 2-3 years in the 80s and 90s which would make a tournament run to the Sweet Sixteen but this is different. Buffalo should be *expected* to get to that level. […]

Had my first chance to see M this year

M made a big run over the first half to push the lead out to double digits over Providence. M defense is of course legit. They’re giving up little penetration and doing a great job of contesting shots at the same time. One thing I’d note…there are a couple of weak(er) links on that roster […]

It’s been totally lost in the shadow of the DOJ/FBI case but interesting show cause ruling out of CA

For anyone thinking MSU might have gotten in the muck re: Bowen

Per Adam Zagoria Interesting quote from Steve Haney, attorney for Christian Dawkins: ‘Michigan State was one of the only schools that was NOT GOING to pay Brian Bowen to go there’ Haney listed MSU, Arizona, Oregon, Texas and Creighton as his final 5 before he picked Louisville in June 2017. Now I’ll tell you that […]
