  1. Afternoon Links: Pay your dues

    Eamonn Brennan

    What we're reading. Submit links via Twitter. The idea of a college players' union is a fantastic idea in theory for a whole host of obvious reasons. But it starts to break down in practice, though, as the petition filed on behalf of Northwestern fo...

  2. Season of Change: USC speed?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Now that you know what you need to watch in every conference in the country, we turn our attention to the theme of change -- from coaching changes to player development to good old-fashioned rules. First up: How quickly can USC get quick? Ground w...

  3. The SoCal recruiting war is upon us

    Eamonn Brennan

    Something has always stood in the way. For decades, it was John Wooden's unapproachable dominance. For just as long, it was USC's inability to care about basketball. In recent years, even the Trojans' most engaged hoops moments -- a flashy new arena,...

  4. Pac-12 preseason vote fittingly confusing

    Eamonn Brennan

    As an overall league, the Pac-12 was really, really bad last season. But, in its badness, it was also profoundly weird. To wit: The 2012 Pac-12 regular-season champion, Washington, didn't go to the NCAA tournament, the first power-six team to acco...

  6. 'Swiperboy' takes his talents to Los Angeles

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's no secret the College Basketball Nation blog has long been fascinated with Tennessee forward Renaldo Woolridge, aka "Swiperboy," a self-styled rap artiste who has made as much of an off-court impact with his musical stylings as he has on the flo...

  7. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    For all the ways you can diss the Pac-12 this season -- and you can start with the 1-29 record against the RPI top 50 in nonconference play, or look at the paucity of teams ranked inside Ken Pomeroy's adjusted efficiency top 50 (there are two), and s...

  8. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    Don't look now, but we may finally have this league figured out. For the first time since we unleashed these rankings on an unsuspecting hoops populace, almost nothing has changed in the past week of games. Why? Because at this point, we basically kn...

  9. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's the second week of February. The college hoops season's version of crunch time is upon us. Where does the Pac-12 stand? Exactly where it stood three weeks ago. Or three weeks before that. Generally speaking, this is a league in stasis. Becaus...

  10. Bottom 10 - Connecticut Huskies continue downward spiral

    Eamonn Brennan

    A good, healthy rivalry brings out the best in opposing parties. Unless it doesn't. With some help from the Beatles, the Bottom 10 looks at rivalries that aren't, and wonders whether UConn has gone fishin' or if the Huskies are swimming with the fishes.

  11. Pac-12 tournament primer -- college basketball

    Eamonn Brennan

    Washington won the Pac-12's regular-season title. That's not saying much. But conference parity could make for an entertaining postseason.

  12. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    Allow me to concur with my colleague, Myron Medcalf, who included the Pac-12's intriguing title race among his five observations Sunday: 2. The Pac-12 race is actually exciting: Let's ignore the fact this could still be a one-bid league and the over...

  13. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    Monday mornings are brutal. You scrape the snow off your car,* trudge to your office or school or wherever it is you trudge to, and you feel yourself fill with dismay and disgust. You think "Jeez, Monday mornings are brutal. If only I had some Pac-12...

  14. Conference power rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    No time to waste with the preamble this week. Anyway, you know the drill. Let's hop right in: 1. California: Just as Cal appeared set to create some separation between itself and the rest of the Pac-12 -- separation it deserves, given its statisti...

  15. Kevin O'Neill has advice for Josh Smith

    Eamonn Brennan

    UCLA center Josh Smith is listed at 6-foot-10, 305 pounds. He is probably even bigger than that, at least where his weight is concerned. This is a very large human being. Usually, in basketball, being large is a virtue. But in Smith's case, of cou...

  16. Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

    Eamonn Brennan

    Before we go any further, let's just all admit that this premise -- ranking the top seven or eight teams in the Pac-12 -- is inherently futile. The distinctions between these teams are minor, if they even exist. Until these standings begin to shake o...
