To nobody’s surprise, the UConn women’s basketball team finished its perfect season with an 82-51 victory over Syracuse in last night’s national championship game. If you’re the kind of jerkass who is constantly looking for reasons to slag women’s college basketball, you could point to UConn’s wire-to-wire dominance…
Villanova closed out the college basketball season with one of the most memorable finishes in history when Kris Jenkins hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to down North Carolina. Here’s that legendary shot as called by announcers around the world:
Villanova erased Marcus Paige’s heroism after Kris Jenkins hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to earn the Wildcats a national championship.
On most plays during the national championship game, it seemed that the outcome favored Clemson. Their defensive line sacked Alabama QB Jake Coker five times and harried him endlessly, while Clemson QB Deshaun Watson frequently had all day to stand in the pocket. Besides a 50-yard TD scamper (we’ll come back to it),…
Greg Huegel’s 44-yard field goal attempt fell short after Clemson found themselves without a chance to run an additional play when officials allowed several seconds to run off the clock after a first down late in the first half of tonight’s national championship.
Here's how Oregon & Ohio State fans reacted live on ESPN's Student Section broadcast to the 70-yard Mariota-to-Marshall touchdown pass.
The uniforms that the Oregon Ducks are going to wear in the national championship are not only bad and boring, they were created by liars.
The Ducks toned down their uniforms for their national championship against Ohio State, and the results are plain boring. The school colors, green and yellow, are just totally absent. Weak.
Rumors of the BCS's humiliation were greatly exaggerated. While many in the college football playoff camp would have liked nothing more than to see a BCS Armageddon with undefeated Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State teams, last week's results prove once again that the current system is not the boogeyman its detractors…
Thanks to the several of you who tipped us off to this fun little bow on the NCAA Tournament. Lennay Kekua's entry correctly picked Louisville to win tonight (and a lot of other games, naturally) is ranked No. 1 on ESPN's leaderboard.
In the end, Rick Pitino out-coached John Beilein on the day he was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Pitino is now the only coach to win national championships with two different schools. He won at Kentucky in 1996 and now Louisville.
Michigan leads Louisville 38-37 after a hugely entertaining first half, highlighted by tremendous performances from Michigan freshman Spike Albrecht and Louisville
walk-on junior Luke Hancock.
While he was a high school recruit from New Hampshire, Michigan's now-star forward, Mitch McGary wrote about the process for ESPN.
It's getting obvious that it doesn't make much such to mindlessly venerate college football coaches—they're not gods, and when they're treated as such, they often start to believe that standards of human decency don't apply to them. That's why, when Nick Saban made a recruiting visit to an Georgia-area high school…
It goes like this: "in the Tennessee Valley, a Madison pizzeria is going out of the norm to create pizzas in the likeness of football icons." There is little need for further explanation, really. Somewhere in Alabama, pizzeria shop owner "Famous" Joe Carlucci and a high school student have pushed the boundaries of…
It's one thing to win what ranks among the worst men's college basketball championship games ever. It's another thing altogether to have to ask the city of Hartford or the state of Connecticut to pony up some coin to have a parade to accompany "the scheduled celebration for the team at the state Capitol."
Future bets are out for college football. Updated ones at least. For odds to win the national championship and over/under on wins for the season. Now that we’re about six weeks from kickoff some of these propositions start to get pretty interesting.
