About

I'm an ex-academic scientist who's having a lot more fun trying to make a career out of sportswriting. I grew up in New Jersey, but I'm a Chicago fan first and foremost (Cubs, Bulls and Bears) because my dad grew up on the North Side.

    My name's John Fanta and I am a current student journalist at Seton Hall. I cover college basketball for SHUPirates.com and collegehoopsdigest.com. I do a weekly podcast and always looking for new guests. We've had insiders such as Jay Bilas, Andy Katz, and Reid Forgrave of FOX before. Would love to have you on, if possible, Thursday between 11 pm and midnight ET? IF not, maybe next week. Just reaching out. I'll give you the number to call and anymore info if needed.

    "It’s just a pity McDermott was never able to evolve into the kind of player who could bring a few more wins to the other four guys in Creighton uniforms before the curtain came down on his highlight-filled career."

    You sir are a disgrace. Your writing isn't even justifiable. How do you have a job.

    I just read your spew about Jabari Parker's decision to attend Duke and the resulting, alleged dagger being thrust into the chest of Tom Izzo because of it. With MSU racking up 90+ points against Delaware yesterday and Duke falling to Mercer today, I'm must ask you: how Izzo's ass taste?

    Not all of us Kansans feel "losing" the rivalry with Missouri is a loss. Many of us felt that getting past Missouri without serious injury to any of our players was a reason to sigh with relief. Missouri always played dirty when they played Kansas. There were numerous incidents of Missouri players' actions bordering on intent to hurt an opposing player. Additionally, the Antlers' antics of calling our players in the middle of the night to disrupt their sleep and doing many other things to affect their play just isn't the kind of sportsmanshp Kansans practice and expect. Last, Missouri's AD, during the latter stages of the discussions regarding realignment publicly stated Missouri is in the Big12 to stay and thus the Oklahoma and Texas teams should pull up their britches and confirm their intent as well. A few days later Missouri bolted. Our feeling is they made their own bed. They knew they were giving up the rivalry. It's their bed. They can sleep in it. I wish them well in the NIT.
