Names I have seen people earnestly suggesting on Twitter: Mark Few and Gregg Marshall.

Did I mention Washington's a state with legalized marijuana?

I guess I can put this here but I am so tired of seeing all the media constantly bringing in Lavar Ball so that he can do his shtick about how he and his sons are the greatest players in the world.  At least I hope it is shtick because if not and those three kids don't turn into even solid NBA players then he is going to be broke and vengeful at his own kids for not making him rich.   The kids seem to be really grounded although with this pushy dad desperate to live off his son for his livelihood it could only be a matter of time

This goof makes Richard Williams seem centered.

I can never decide if Crean looks more like he would have a basement full of human skulls, or will do whatever it takes to get you in this used Hyundai.

EDIT: I retract my previous statement.  He looks like Willy Loman at the end of a three day bender.

I knew at least three dudes like Lavar growing up, but all their sons were garbage so I salute him for getting this far.

Supposedly the Pokes found out via Twitter. I love the Illini but that's fucking classless.

I'm curious why you think it would have to be one or the other.

JT3 is out at Georgetown

It seems like they worked out some sort of buyout so they didn't have to actually fire him

EDIT - Nevermind. Reports have been edited and he definitely was fired

So Pat Kelsey had agreed to leave Winthrop and become the UMASS head coach.

Two days later he was all "fuck that" and went back to Winthrop

Apparently 30 minutes before he was to be introduced, he asked to be let out of the agreement

The Daily News is all-in on how they should hire Patrick Ewing. He's got the coaching experience and it would definitely light a fire in the Big East again.

The North Carolina legislature has agreed to (sort of) repeal the anti-LGBT bill, HB2, a couple of days before the NCAA's deadline to pull all championship events until 2022.

It appears that Patrick Ewing is the leader in the clubhouse for the Georgetown job as he is interviewing in person tomorrow (after interviewing over the phone a few times already)

Of course - all their first choices didn't even want to talk to them
