Big 12 Expansion: Why NOT Cincinnati

As we try to debunk maybe the most logical choice for expansion. As mentioned earlier today, Cincinnati is at the top of most people's lists for expansion. Since the Big 12 added West Virginia and then failed to go after Louisville, Cincinnati became the most logical next choice. But they weren't added at the time, and you'd think there'd have to be something that has been preventing the Bearcats from already being invited. Well, it turns out there are several somethings, so lets take a look. Location "But their location makes them ideal!" you say. And while geography is on their side, the...

Gameday Open Thread - (1) Texas Tech vs. (3) West Virginia

The Red Raiders continue their quest for the Big 12 Title and an automatic invite to the postseason with a game against West Virginia. After winning their 1st opening round game of the Big 12 conference tournament in over a decade, Tech is looking to make a push for the title with a matchup against the Mountaineers. 4 teams will be facing elimination in the losers bracket, and it is great that Tech is not one of them. A win today would push the Red Raiders to the Division 1 title game on Saturday morning and a day off tomorrow. First Pitch: 4:00pm, CST, however if a prior game lasts longer...

Oklahoma 13 - Kansas State 7 | Post Game Quotes

Oklahoma Head Coach Pete Hughes Opening statement: "It's back to the wall day and you don't know how your team is going to respond to that. I know who we have in our clubhouse this year. I think they are kind of special. We all want to win more games, but as long as you have the right kind of character you can handle a whole lot of things during the course of the season. Especially play in the 9 a.m. game. You're not supposed to play baseball at 9 a.m., but if you lose then you have to play baseball at 9 a.m. and we got the bad draw in round one. Our guys came out with energy and they...

BYU basketball players are spread out all over the world from the United States to Europe, Asia, and recently South America. Let's revisit their BYU careers and check in on how they're doing in the pros In the second and final part of the Cougars in the Pros series, we will take a look at four Cougar players who all averaged over 15 points per game at least once in their BYU career. Brandon Davies (2009-2013): While he might be most known nationally for his dismissal from the 2011 team that prevented the Jimmer Fredette-led squad from making a serious run at a national championship, Davies...

Big Ten Baseball Tournament: Hoosiers knock off Nebraska, live to fight another day

Indiana got much-needed production from its offense for the first time in several games and Baragar, Belcher, and Kelzer combined to shutdown the red hot Huskers and make them the first team to be eliminated from the conference tournament. At long last, after five games and eight days of stagnant offense, the Indiana bats finally came to life late in Thursday's elimination game against Nebraska, producing more runs than the club had scored in any game in three weeks. And behind nine quality innings of pitching, it was more than enough to keep the season alive for at least one more...

Art Briles out at Baylor, Ken Starr demoted

The sexual assault epidemic at Baylor is finally addressed. Baylor has fired -- technically, "suspended with intent to terminate" -- head coach Art Briles in the wake of an independent report on sexual assault complaints involving several football players. In a statement, Baylor also announced that the board of regents has demoted Ken Starr from his position as president; he will apparently be allowed to remain on board as a law professor and will continue serving as chancellor. Additionally, Baylor will re-investigate all sexual assault claims filed by Baylor students over the last three...

Baylor Firing Art Briles Doesn't Mean They'll Hire Dino Babers

Don't jump to conclusions just because Babers used to coach there. Art Briles is no longer the coach of the Baylor Bears football program. The architect of BU's turnaround was let go by the university today, citing Briles's handling of player-related domestic violence and sexual assault issues, and the resulting scandal that's still yet to conclude. The third-party report on the extent of issues under Briles's watch is now out, if you choose to read. It's a pretty disgusting collection of willful ignorance by the football program from 2012-2015. As you well know, Syracuse Orange head coach...

ASU Football: A Complete Summer Primer of the 2016 Quarterback Battle

The heat drives people crazy. Relive the heat from 2012 and let's compare it to 2016. It's almost summer time. Arizona weather will reveal it's already arrived sooner than it does in most other places in the country, as it normally does. The weather may feel familiar to you folk who have lived in the desert for years, but there's a certain restlessness Arizona State University Sun Devils football fans are enduring entering June that feels a little strange. Actually, this isn't too strange or even unfamiliar territory for ASU faithful. The Sun Devils still don't know (or at least, have not...

Marquette Volleyball Announces 2016 Schedule

10 games against 2015 NCAA tournament teams should make for a challenging slate for the Golden Eagles. The 2016 Marquette Volleyball schedule is exactly what you'd expect it to be: 9 home Big East games, 9 road Big East games, three games in the Marquette Invitational, and a whole mess of road trips to various other tournaments. Along the way, the Golden Eagles will be playing 10 games against teams that played in the 2015 NCAA tournament, although they'll only be playing eight NCAA tournament games. Remember: Creighton and Villanova both made the 64 team field last year, so that's four...

Jackie Bradley Jr. and his hitting streak: A chat with Over the Monster's Ben Buchanan

We get an inside look at the streak from someone who knows and follows the Red Sox closely. So, did you guys hear about Jackie Bradley Jr. and how well he's been hitting over the past few weeks? The former South Carolina Gamecock and current Boston Red Sox outfielder is in the middle of a 29-game hitting streak and is the talk of Major League Baseball right now. But how has his approach changed from past years, and what has been the secret to this offensive surge of his? Ben Buchanan, co-manager of Over the Monster (SBN's Red Sox site), was kind to answer a few questions and provide his...

Previewing the NCAA Softball Super Regionals: Missouri at Michigan

Mizzou dominated the Columbia regional in a way rarely seen before. Their reward: A date with a team that beat them 13-0 earlier this season. Let's look at the Michigan Wolverines. Amidst a flurry of off-field distractions, Mizzou raced to dominant run-rule victories in their regional last weekend, besting BYU once, then Nebraska twice in order to claim an 11th overall Super Regional berth, and their 8th under Coach Ehren Earleywine. For their hard work, the Tigers now have the chance to face the Michigan Wolverines. Michigan, led by 3-time POY finalist Sierra Romero, defeated Mizzou early...

Oklahoma Sooners Survive With 13-7 Win Over Kansas State

For the second consecutive season, the Oklahoma Sooners have eliminated the Kansas State Wildcats from Big XII Tournament play. Struggling to open the game, Alec Hansen seemed to fall victim to the lack of control that has plagued him all season long. In the first inning, the pitcher hit two batters while KSU knocked a single to drive in the runners. However, the Sooners answered in the top of the second. With no outs and two runners in scoring position, a wild pitch sent Neuse across the plate. Moments later, Cody Thomas connected on a deep ball to left field bringing Austin O'Brien home to...

RECAP: South Carolina Gamecocks Eliminated by Texas A&M from SEC Tournament

The Gamecock bats fell silent as they once again as they fail to get a win in Hoover. This game was a pitcher's duel from the beginning. Gamecock starter, Braden Webb went 6.2 innings with 8 strikeouts. He also gave up 3 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Braden Webb started the day nicely, but then gave up all three of his earned runs during the Texas A&M half of the 2nd inning. A&M was able to scratch first with three straight basehits and quickly gained a 3-0 lead on the Gamecocks. However, the Gamecocks would get one back in the bottom of the 3rd on a hit and run by Mooney that ended up...
