So are you just going to deny the existence of David Thompson forever?
Doug, The NCAA hammers a school like St Mary's, yet has turned a blind eye to the rampant cheating at unc-chapel hill. Documented cheating at carolina that includes 216 fake classes, 454 unauthorized grade changes, forged signatures of professors, athletes turning in plagiarized papers... going as far back as 1997 (possibly beyond, but they stopped looking at that point). We all know St Mary's does not bring in the dollars for the NCAA that a school like unc-ch does. How else can you explain how a school can so blatantly cheat, yet get a free pass from the body that is supposed to keep the playing field level for all schools.
Just read your article "Pros and Cons for Each Andrew Wiggins Suitor" and was just wondering what your prediction would be, based on those pros and cons? Or, if you wanted to add a slide for a prediction, either is fine.
I would do a article on Noah Vonleh choosing IU ASAP.
Hey, Doug. Email me. email@example.com

No problem !
Just read your list of the Most Hated Players. Without arguing about any of your individual picks (I have enjoyed hating a number of those players and coaches along the way), I still wonder: why do you think such a high proportion of Most Hated Players are white? Basketball at the uppermost levels -- among Americans anyway -- is an overwhelmingly African-American game, yet just about half your Most Hated (15/34 players, leaving coaches aside) are white. What accoutns for this? Do we hate the striver and struggler (eg Ainge) who succeeds through sheer brute determination?
