  3. Is Renardo Sidney worth a pick?

    Eamonn Brennan

    In this morning's top 10 draft questions, I spent all of my allotted queries discussing first-round intrigue. That's kind of the way the NBA draft works. The first round carries risk and reward; the second round can feel more like an afterthought. ...

  4. SEC/Big East slate whets the appetite

    Eamonn Brennan

    The SEC/Big East Challenge may not quite have the longstanding cachet of its ACC/Big Ten brethren, nor should it. The ACC/Big Ten Challenge is 13 going on 14, and as the years piled up and the Atlantic Coasters just kept winning -- the ACC won the fi...

  5. Dee Bost's draft confusion continues

    Eamonn Brennan

    It was a while ago now, so you might have forgotten, but allow me to take you back to May 2011 2010, when the NCAA's new NBA draft decision deadline (which came even earlier on the calendar this spring) forced players to make their life-altering deci...

  6. So, about Mississippi State

    Eamonn Brennan

    There are rebuilding programs, and then there's this. That's the immediate and obvious reaction I had when reading the latest out of Starkville, Miss. Sunday night, just after whatever it was that happened on "Mad Men." (To be honest, I'm not real...

  7. 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 ...

  9. TMA: Mini-Bubble Watch edition!

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Morning After is our semi-daily recap of last night's best basketball action. It highly recommends John Gasaway's treatise on the historical origins and context of the Ratings Percentage Index. Essential reading. I have a bad memory. It's one ...

  10. What we learned from Saturday night

    Eamonn Brennan

    This Saturday was always going to be a bit more underwhelming than recent weeks, but boy, did it end well. Once it ended, that is. Creighton students rushed the court before the game was officially over. Their reverse storm, in which they calmly walk...

  11. Poll Thoughts: Um, hello? Wichita State?

    Eamonn Brennan

    College hoops polls might be inconsequential noise, but that doesn't make the arguments any less fun. In that spirit, I present the creatively named Poll Thoughts, which you can expect every Monday until the season is over. In case you missed it, Jas...

  12. Here's what we learned on Saturday night

    Eamonn Brennan

    As good as the afternoon was, with exciting upsets and huge road wins over top-five teams, the evening may have matched it in the vital FOPM statistical category. (FOPM stands for freak outs per minute. It's a tempo-adjusted metric, naturally.) Let's...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Morning After is our semi-daily recap of the night's best basketball action. It apologizes for being a bit late, but it was up all night watching the JoePa mess unfold in real time. It should have just gone to bed. Akron 68, Mississippi State...

  16. Renardo Sidney getting in shape (again)

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last summer, the story on Mississippi State forward Renardo Sidney went a little something like this: After a freshman season spent waiting for an eligibility decision from the NCAA (one that didn't come until the NCAA suspended Sidney for the first ...
