Fantasy College Basketball CBB Rankings: NCAA Top 10 (02/21/18)

In desperate need of inspiration, we're listening to some records as we write our rankings this week. For all you millennials, a record is like Spotify, except you pay for it. Rimshot. Speaking of bad jokes, the knee-jerk reactions from the conventional pollsters in recent weeks are almost laughable. For once, we're proud of our... Read More

Fantasy College Basketball CBB Rankings: NCAA Top 10 (02/14/18)

Old habits die hard. Actually, we don't like to make changes to our rankings for change's sake. So while the conventional pollsters were quick to drop certain teams--and boost others--based on the result of a single game, we're don't generally have such knee-jerk reactions. Because, when we've had them, we've ended up looking bad for... Read More

Fantasy College Basketball CBB Rankings: NCAA Top 10 (02/07/18)

  We get bored easily. It's one of our many flaws. It leads to a lot of channel-surfing, and a lot of unfinished business. And so, we were a bit concerned as we put together our Top 10 for this week. There are not a lot of changes, at least at the top, and that... Read More

We've all heard the quotes from players, coaches and media types alike. You know, the ones that begin, "Good teams..." "Good teams win close games." "Good teams win when they aren't playing well." "Good teams capitalize on mistakes." Well, it goes without saying that the programs in our top 10 are "good teams." So here... Read More

We doubt Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. cared much about college basketball--not that that tarnishes his legacy with us in any way.

Most people like to say, "We told you so," when others make an error in judgement. But we're not most people. Why? Because we put our thoughts out there every week, and most of the time we're wrong.

Thanksgiving does more than simply raise our body weight and cholesterol levels.
