The Dean's List
Arizona and Texas Tech were in the running for the Dean's List's team of the week. After all, both schools knocked off top five teams. But they also both did it by injuring the opposing team's quarterback, although
These days, college basketball is all about the money. That's why the Dean's List would like to recognize
My grandpappy always used to tell me, "Losing ain't easy." And he would know, the guy lost more card games than anyone in the state of North Carolina. But my grandfather never lost a basketball game quite as bad as the women's team at Fisk did Tuesday. The Bulldogs were just a little over matched by Lipscomb in a 123-22 loss. The 101-point loss was one point shy of the Division-I women's record for biggest margin of victory, or in this case, margin of defeat. Poor Fisk, their leading scorer only had eight points and at halftime they were already losing 61-10. On the positive side, they did make the Dean's List, and
The Dean's List would not be complete without the inclusion of a man named Macho. That's what everyone calls Virginia Tech cornerback
The Dean's List believes that, in a perfect world, all grudges would be determined through a good old-fashioned brawl. That seems more fair than bickering at each other through the media. Accordingly, former Georgia running back
High school kids, I'll tell ya, they say the darndest things sometimes. Take, for example, this week's Dean's List honoree
You know what the world needs? More March Madness. Thanks to this week's Dean's List nominee, the Gazelle Group, instead of having two postseason college basketball tournaments, we will have three tournaments -- the NCAA, the NIT and the CBI -- that will allow 113 teams to compete for a title. The College Basketball Invitational will invite 16 teams and play single elimination games until the finals, which will be best two out of three. Is it necessary? Probably not, I mean, if you didn't even make the NIT you're probably not worth watching. However, was the extra Whiz on your cheesesteak necessary? Was it good? Exactly.
Field Hockey is a sport I've never understood, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate it, especially when an undefeated season is involved. North Carolina won its fifth NCAA field hockey title and completed a spectacular loss-less season with a 3-0 victory over Penn State. The Tar Heels finished the season 24-0, earning themselves a spot on the Dean's List. They outscored their opponents 99-14 for the season. Domination has to be a wonderful feeling, even in one of the few sports that requires players to wear skirts.
Even if your football team sucks so bad that they can go 22 games without a win, you've got to have faith. That's what separates the fair-weather fans from the die hards. The Dean's List would like to honor all the Duke fans who thought they had a chance to beat Notre Dame in football this weekend. One fan even set up
It's a classic whodunit scenario in Atlanta. The facility manager at Georgia Tech's home court, the Alexander Memorial Coliseum, left work on an early November Friday night with the Yellow Jacket's 2004 Final Four banner hanging from the rafters. Saturday morning, the banner was gone. There were no signs of forced entry and no clues. The Dean's List has a few theories, though. Maybe
