Indiana University: Where Ten Wins Make Us Smile

Monday, March 8th, 2010

As you loyal Rumors and Rants readers are all too familiar with by now, we’re a bunch of Indiana University graduates. Which means a few things: 1. We apparently weren’t smart enough to get into our No. 1 college choice (Northwestern in my case). 2. We watch “Breaking Away” at least ...

Eat It, Assholeface

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Gonna keep this one short and sweet because I'm doing a celebratory dance as I type this. Kelvin Sampson's appeal of the NCAA's restrictions on him has been denied. DENIED, I tell you.

The Balls On This Guy…

In case you weren't aware, I hate Kelvin Sampson so much that picturing him suffering like Sisyphus in Milwaukee doesn't even bring a smile to my face. His name only exits my mouth on rare occasions, usually preceded by the type of unhinged cursing reserved only for the San Diego ...

Pat Forde Really Wants Me To Hate Him

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Typically, I've given guys who work for ESPN a little slack. They have some truly gifted writers and reporters at the network (no Scoop Jackson, I'm not looking in your direction) and a lot of the investigative work they do is fantastic. One guy I can typically read when I ...

Kelvin Sampson and Scott Skiles: Match Made in Heaven?

Friday, April 25th, 2008

We here at Rumors and Rants are partial to Indiana University for obvious reasons. That bastion of higher learning gave all of us many good times. Especially if you exclude almost all of the Hoosier basketball teams we were force-fed in our tenure.Man, they were some lean years. Some lean ...

Scenes From The Press Conference

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

Well, after waiting in the IU Media room for close on five hours (I got there at 4 p.m. and the press conference didn't start until just after 9 p.m.) we finally got a resolution to the Kelvin Sampson mess. I snapped a few pictures from before it started so ...
