Louisville outlasts Notre Dame in 2OT for first win in South Bend since 1994

Louisville outlasts Notre Dame in 2OT for first win in South Bend since 1994

Praise CCBM Touchdown Jesus. In every way but one, Tuesday night’s Louisville-Notre Dame game felt like a late night replay all of us have seen enough times to recall every line reflexively. The Cardinals and Fighting Irish played a back and forth contest that couldn’t be settled over the customary 40 minutes. Or over the less customary 45 minutes. After two overtimes, Louisville emerged with an incredibly hard-fought 82-78 win. With that triumph came the program’s first victory over Notre Dame in South Bend since 1994, a streak spanning six games and three conferences. Of course...

Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M basketball 2018: Time, TV schedule, and online streaming

Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M basketball 2018: Time, TV schedule, and online streaming

The Rebs take on an Aggies club with a few question marks. Hello. After brushing the dust off the old blogging machine, it appears that Ole Miss meets up with Texas A&M in College Station at 8 p.m. CT on Tuesday. Consider yourselves warned. Texas A&M started this season as something of the college basketball polls’ darling, ranking as high as No. 5 in the AP Top 25 in week eight, following impressive out-of-conference wins over USC and West Virginia, the latter of whom has hovered around the top 10 for a few weeks now. But following five-straight losses to open SEC play, the Aggies are...

Ole Miss football to potentially add two more to the coaching staff, per report

Ole Miss football to potentially add two more to the coaching staff, per report

Both are former SEC West staffers. The newly-crowned Ole Miss football coach has done it again. And this time it’s a double-whammy. After snagging two NFL assistants and Jacob Peeler in 2017, he has now positioned himself to make two HUGE additions in the new year. Ole Miss could potentially be adding LSU general manager and recruiting savage Austin Thomas AND fellow recruiting savage and former Alabama staffer turned South Alabama wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Tyler Siskey to their staff very soon, as first reported by FootballScoop. Sources tell FootballScoop former Ole...

BYU Football Recruiting: Top targets and needs before National Signing Day

Top targets, needs, and potential answers With the new early signing period having already taken place back in December, the traditional National Signing Day on the first Tuesday in February will lack the same excitement and buzz it usually does.

Here is a list of some of BYU’s top target and positions of need with National Signing Day just a few weeks away. Gunner Romney, WR Romney committed to BYU over the summer, but...

Notre Dame PG Matt Farrell expected to play against Louisville

Of course he is. Help is on the way for Notre Dame Tuesday night against Louisville. According to Jon Rothstein of FanRag, Fighting Irish senior point guard Matt Farrell is expected to return the court when the Irish host the Cardinals. Farrell, the team’s second leading scorer at 15.9 ppg and leading assist man at 5.1 apg, has been hampered with an ankle injury for weeks and has missed Notre Dame’s last three games. The Irish have gone 1-2 in his absence. Farrell has had success against Louisville over the years. A season ago he dropped a then career-high 22 points in Notre Dame’s...

MSU basketball: Is it time to panic? Or will everything be just dandy?

Do you still think this team is capable of being the nation’s best? One month ago, we couldn’t imagine the last week of MSU hoops happening. In December, this team was thrashing everyone in its path. Every game (except the loss to Duke) looked like a varsity vs. JV game as our No. 1-ranked Spartans were living up to their billing of national title contenders. Now, here they are – fourth in the Big Ten and an overtime win against Rutgers away from a three-game losing streak. And we all know those two losses weren’t fluky buzzer-beaters either. Getting the brakes beaten off by...

Ole Miss ranked No. 9 in D1Baseball’s Preseason Top 25

Top 10 this time around. Ole Miss baseball begins the 2018 season ranked No. 9 in D1 Baseball’s opening rankings, the highest such ranked team that ended last year outside the top 25. We previously saw that the Rebels were in the top 15 in Perfect Game’s Preseason Top 25, but the folks over at D1 think Ole Miss is a few notches higher despite a lackluster season a year ago. Off the cuff, you have to think they are considering the fact that the Rebels should win every Friday when they roll Ryan Rolison out there on the hill. Then, you add in the fact that they have a dynamic one-two...

Football Coaching Staff: Whole is Greater than Sum of its Parts

As Head Coach Joe Moorhead finalizes his staff, it looks as if they check all of the relevant boxes. Because college football fans are college football fans, we love to give our opinions about who should serve as assistant coaches for our favorite team. Immediately upon the hiring of Joe Moorhead as the new head coach at Mississippi State, Bulldog fans commenced the debate about who should be on his coaching staff. Again, because we’re fans, we tend to view each staff position in a vacuum: we’ll argue with each other all day that Coach X should be the defensive line coach instead of...

What the return of Grant Newsome could mean to Michigan’s offensive line in 2018

What the return of Grant Newsome could mean to Michigan’s offensive line in 2018

Michigans offensive line may see some promising upgrades and a talent boost for the 2018 season. For Michigan to have a breakout year in 2018, one position unit that will need to improve the most is the offensive line. All the other pieces for a more productive offense are there, with most players returning and Shea Patterson competing for the quarterback job if the NCAA rules him eligible to play right away. Oct. 1, 2016: I was at The Big House when Grant Newsome went down. Fans surrounding me went silent, knowing his injury was serious and a huge blow to the offensive line just took...

House of Horrors: A look at Louisville’s road struggles against Notre Dame

The Cardinals have not won at the Joyce Center since 1994. If you’re reading this, you’re likely at least somewhat familiar with the fact that the Louisville men’s basketball team has had some struggles in games played at Notre Dame. Now there’s become something of a misconception that the Cardinals have never won in South Bend, which isn’t true. U of L has actually won on the road four times at Notre Dame. The futility didn’t begin until Louisville joined the Big East in 2005-06. During U of L’s time in the Big East, the Cardinals beat every league opponent on the road...

Good stuff as usual from Eamonn Brennan in his Big East Notebook on The Athletic, pointing out that the current Big East season has been devoid of drama thus far and well, relatively boring (my words, not his). You can find the full story HERE, the blurb pertaining to the Hoyas is below: Georgetown (12-5, 2-4): Last week’s most notable Georgetown-related news was the viral real-talk timeout coach Patrick Ewing delivered to his leading scorer, Marcus Derrickson, after a particularly ill-advised Dirk-fade late in the shot clock against DePaul. The way things are going, it wouldn’t...

Tuesday Morning Brews: Whoa, Nelly

Hold the phone Happy Tuesday, folks. Welcome to morning Brews. In case you haven’t heard, Keith Jackson passed away last Friday at the age of 89. For those younger than 35, Jackson was the sports announcer. He called college football games for about 50 years, most of them with ABC. He was the one who called Desmond Howard’s punt return in 1991, punctuating it with the now iconic “Hello Heisman!” as Howard crossed the goal line and struck his pose in the endzone. Depending on who you talk to, he’s the one who christened Michigan Stadium as “The Big House.” Berman, Buck,...
