  1. You Gotta See This: CAA

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's college basketball preview season, and you know what that means: tons of preseason info to get you primed for 2013-14. But what do you really need to know? Each day for the next month, we'll highlight the most important, interesting or just plai...

  2. I miss the old CAA

    Eamonn Brennan

    While scouring the Internet for college basketball goodness, I came across the below video, a well-made riff on the NBA "Big" advertisements featuring the Northeastern Huskies (hat tip: Redditor "ebinsugewa"): After chuckling the slightest of ...

  3. Here comes ... Towson?

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 2011-12, the Towson Tigers suffered through one of the more humiliating and ignominious feats in college hoops history: They went the entire calendar year of 2011 -- and all the way through January, including a 27-point performance in a loss to Dr...

  4. Recapping Saturday afternoon's games

    Eamonn Brennan

    Some assorted thoughts on the bulk of Saturday's afternoon action: Baylor 64, No. 8 Kentucky 55: With the benefit of a couple months' distance, it's entirely likely we will look back at this game as nothing more than a good win for Baylor. We will...

  5. DIRECTV Classic primer

    Eamonn Brennan

    Don't be fooled by the name; this is not a new tournament. It is merely a repackaged Anaheim Classic that is no longer leaving naming-rights sponsorship money on the table. This would normally be the part where we criticize soulless corporate sports ...

  6. Paradise Jam Primer

    Eamonn Brennan

    Until Connecticut's opening day victory over Michigan State in Germany, there wasn't much reason to get excited about the 2012 Paradise Jam. And even after a gutty, fired-up UConn team showed us it's not ready to wither just yet, the P-Jam (which is ...

  7. Tony Shaver 'throwing phone in the ocean'

    Eamonn Brennan

    Late summer is an awkward time for the sport of college basketball. Any and all news slows to a relative trickle. Barring awkward Twitter reveals, newsy blog posts are frustratingly meager. The most important dynamic this time of year is recruitin...

  8. Is the CAA's realignment decision unfair?

    Eamonn Brennan

    On Tuesday, Colonial Athletic Association commissioner Tom Yeager delivered the bad news. The CAA's members had organized a pow-wow, held a vote, and reached a decision about the championship eligibility of the schools (Old Dominion and Georgia State...

  9. Towson's time in the cellar may be over

    Eamonn Brennan

    No, I don't mean the Colonial Athletic Association cellar. The Towson Tigers have been there for years, of course, but that's a small byproduct of Towson's continued existence in the ur-cellar -- of the entirety of Division I basketball itself. Fr...

  10. Games that should continue in the noncon

    Eamonn Brennan

    Realignment ruins everything. That is the typical and typically warranted and, yes, somewhat childish response to the past two years of TV-rights-induced conference realignment, a phrase I can no longer even type without wincing. I just winced. See? ...

  11. Old Dominion latest CAA school to bolt

    Eamonn Brennan

    The most important week in recent Colonial Athletic Association history started out all right: Five days ago, George Mason announced it would turn down offers from other conferences and remain in its home league. That was good news for the CAA and co...

  12. George Mason decides to stay in CAA

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Colonial Athletic Association, like so many other mid-major college hoops conferences, suddenly finds itself at a crossroads. Conference realignment on both coasts has moved on from the football-driven musical chairs game played by BCS big boys a...

  13. Shaka Smart to host Obama rally

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last year, VCU coach Shaka Smart had what he called at the time a "phenomenal thing" -- the opportunity to meet President Barack Obama at the White House. The VCU Rams didn't finish their magical run to the Final Four with a national title -- Butler ...

  14. ODU careful before conference move

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Old Dominion Monarchs are just the latest collegiate athletics program to be swept up in conference realignment, which appears to have officially moved beyond its major-conference stages and into smaller, mid-major leagues like the WAC, the Horiz...

  15. The case for and against five NCAA 'snubs'

    Eamonn Brennan

    Say this for the NCAA: When it expanded the tournament to 68 teams, it accomplished at least one thing. It made your argument invalid. Once the province of outrage and disgust, the post-tournament bracket digestion process has become downright ...
