College Football Week 9 Roundup: Disappointing Losses for BC, UMass

Boston College, 10; North Carolina, 34 Boston College missed a good chance to go above .500 with a poor showing against North Carolina (2-5) at Kenan Memorial Stadium. The Tar Heels hadn’t won since September 7 against Middle Tennessee, and the win was their first in Atlantic Coast Conference play. On Saturday, they outgained the […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 9): Baylor Enters Into Top 5

1. Syracuse (60) Last week was business as usual for the Orange. They opened the conference slate with walk throughs against Seton Hall and DePaul. Things will get a little tougher this week, with games against PC and No. 20 Marquette. No one gets through the Big East unscathed, so Syracuse’s first loss should come […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 8): Baylor Defeats Paul Quinn

1. Syracuse (54) The Orange played the eclectic duo of Bucknell and Tulane last week, and they will get started with Big East play this week. They will play a school almost exclusively associated with Big East basketball (Seton Hall) as well as a school that people often forget is in the Big East (DePaul). […]

Basketball AP top 25 (Week 7): Syracuse Continues to Roll

1. Syracuse (53) Solid win over NC State. I talked last week about how I didn’t think they were deserving of the No. 1 ranking. While they aren’t the best team in the country, they’ve done nothing to dissuade me from thinking they deserve to be No. 1 right now. They’ve done everything they’ve had […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 6): Indiana Marching Along

1. Syracuse (51) Do they really feel like the best team in the country to you? I would take a handful of teams against them on a neutral court. This No. 1 ranking is more a product of the schedule and other team’s losses than anything. The Orange are a Top 10 team, not a No. […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 5): Kentucky Continues to Roll

1. Kentucky (47) Did you see the Kentucky-UNC game?!?! It was ridiculous. The amount of talent on the floor was absurd, and I was transfixed the entire time. I don’t think there’s anything I can say that’s not already been said, so I’ll leave it at this: this season I’m rooting for whatever will lead […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 4): Look Out For the Rebels

1. Kentucky (46) The Wildcats continued to roll through significantly less talented teams last week, and that allowed them to step into the top spot after UNC lost. UK’s supremacy may not last long though – the two teams play on Saturday. 2. Ohio State (17) The Buckeyes played North Florida, VMI and Valparaiso last […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 3): Pittsburgh Panthers Fall

1. North Carolina (62) The Tar Heels didn’t do much this week. There were no games on aircraft carriers, just a sound victory over Mississippi Valley State, Jerry Rice’s alma mater. It wasn’t much of a test for them. 2. Kentucky The Wildcats, however, beat a really good Kansas team. They also had solid wins […]

North Carolina Wins NCAA Championship

The No. 1-seeded University of North Carolina Tar Heels brought the Michigan State Spartans back down to Earth, defeating them 89-72 to win the NCAA Men’s College Basketball National Championship. Ty Lawson finished with 21 points, six assists, and eight steals, while teammate Tyler Hansbrough finished with 18 points and seven rebounds in the win. With […]

Pitino Busts My NCAA Bracket Again

VIEW –> Sports of Boston NCAA Bracket Standings: Top 20 Ahh, the peaks and valleys of the NCAA Tournament. By Saturday, I lost my first Elite Eight team, and subsequently my first Final Four team in Memphis. I had the seven other Elite Eight teams so I was still in great shape to win some much-need money […]

BC Stuns No. 1 UNC, 85-78

The Boston College Men’s Basketball team pulled off quite an upset Sunday as they try to prove they are worthy for a Top-25 ranking. The Eagles beat the No. 1 team in the nation, previously unbeaten North Carolina, 85-78 in Chapel Hill. The loss almost certainly takes UNC out of the top spot. They have […]
