  1. UK's, Duke's close calls show their flaws

    Eamonn Brennan

    Before we go any further, let's get one very cliche thing straight: Wins are wins. In three months, none of us will much remember, or much care, that Kentucky spent most of Feast Week Monday wobbling behind Cleveland State in Rupp Arena. It won't m...

  2. Texas Southern is awful at following rules

    Eamonn Brennan

    When you see the NCAA punish a school like Texas Southern, the immediate reflex is to make fun of the NCAA. You want to repeat the classic quote: "The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky, it's going to give Cleveland State two more years' probation." Whether ...

  3. Xavier comeback highlights 'other' games

    Eamonn Brennan

    Hopefully, you ignored college football. Hopefully, you procrastinated putting up your Christmas decorations. Hopefully, after Kentucky's thrilling win over North Carolina this afternoon, you stayed plopped in that couch groove, remote in one hand an...

  5. Weekend's non-Carrier action good, too

    Eamonn Brennan

    Today is the big day: The Carrier Classic. It's exciting. It's fun. It's going to be one of the better spectacles in college hoops history. But for various reasons I discussed on the podcast yesterday, it not be the best-played basketball game of all...

  7. Charles Jenkins had a very good night

    Eamonn Brennan

    Hofstra's Charles Jenkins might be the best college basketball player you've never heard of. (Especially since Cleveland State's Norris Cole put himself on the map with that insane 40-20-9 line versus Youngstown State Saturday.) Jenkins is averaging ...

  8. Recapping a bubbly Saturday's early action

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saturday was not the most enticing day of college hoops we've seen this season. Saturday night's "College GameDay" feature, a 9 p.m. ET tilt between No. 11 Kentucky and No. 23 Florida, is the only matchup of two ranked teams on the schedule. But I'm ...

  9. Cleveland State outperforming Butler early

    Eamonn Brennan

    Butler may yet round into form as the Horizon League's dominant team. It's hard to imagine a Bulldogs team this talented, experienced and well-coached not winning their conference by the time all is said and done in 2011. The only difference betwe...

  10. Can Robert Upshaw pop at Washington?

    Eamonn Brennan

  11. MSU's Derrick Nix: 'I felt stupid'

    Eamonn Brennan

    This summer, as Michigan State coach Tom Izzo weighed a potentially career-defining move to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Spartans fans held a vigil outside the Breslin Center. Few players were in attendance, but at least one was there. That player was De...

  12. Tom Izzo: I should have been more open

    Eamonn Brennan

    After Tom Izzo's two-week dalliance with the Cleveland Cavaliers, a euphoric Michigan State administration held a news conference to welcome Izzo back to the school with open arms. They also had their wagging fingers ready. MSU president Lou Anna K. ...

  13. Tom Izzo made the right call

    Eamonn Brennan

    Hey, remember Tom Izzo? Who almost left his hero-for-life gig at Michigan State for a potential opportunity to coach LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers? Izzo's decision already looked like the smart one. After all, he never received any assu...

  14. Tom Izzo inches closer, but why?

    Eamonn Brennan

    You already know the latest news: Tom Izzo is leaning more toward leaving Michigan State and taking the Cleveland Cavaliers job than ever before. That's what a source told our own Andy Katz today: That source discussed Izzo's future with a close con...

  15. If Izzo leaves, what's next for MSU?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Allow me to attach this disclaimer right off the bat: It's way, way, way too early to start thinking about Michigan State's next head coach. Tom Izzo still hasn't confirmed any interest in the Cleveland Cavaliers job; it's unclear whether he has any;...

  16. Izzo rumors take over again

    Eamonn Brennan

    Is Tom Izzo fielding offers from the Cleveland Cavaliers? It was just last week that Izzo seemed to put that sort of rumor to rest. Izzo spoke to Andy Katz about his desire to coach at Michigan State at least until he wins another title. In toto, Izz...
