"We are excited to bring the Doug Gottlieb show to Central New York, every weekday 3-6pm on The Score 1260 (WSKO.) Gottlieb brings years of experience in sports talk radio and college basketball analysis. His opinions can be polarizing, but in sports talk radio, it’s good to have a personality who likes to stir things up."
"It still stings to this day," Thompson said. "Every time the memories are brought up, it’s a stinging feel. So close, a great opportunity. As that moment happened, you think you’ll get back, but we never got back to the national championship. A lot of success, but we never got back."
I'm as dumbfounded as you that Crean has made it to two straight Sweet 16s. I mean, the concept of Crean winning NCAA tournament games at all is stunning, really, but to have prolonged success? UNHEARD OF. On top of that, getting to the Elite Eight is still a pretty impressive accomplishment, so bombing out in the S16 means Crean looks even more ridiculous for cutting down the nets in an empty Assembly Hall.
While the Scotsman collapses, The Post-Standard cuts home delivery to three days a week and the Auburn Citizen ends its Monday edition, the DO is talking growth.

Indiana is, I have thought from the beginning of the year, the best team in the country along with Louisville. Miami is not far behind when you look at what they have done this year. We knew our bracket once we saw it, once we got to Washington (D.C.), it would obviously be a high likelihood that Indiana or Miami would be there so we knew how difficult it would be. But we’re excited about it. We played better basketball the last few games in tournament time. Our defense has been good and our offense has been there sometimes. We need to play a lot better offensively to play against Indiana."
Syracuse may be the first school to develop antibodies to against the Adidas pox. They claim Adidas' entanglement in a nasty Indonesian labor dispute has put them in violation of their contract with the school, and that not paying 2,500 workers in a third-world country while selling jerseys for hundreds of dollars a piece is somehow not consonant with a university's mission. There is a comment to be made about the immense irony of universities protesting unpaid labor by corporate athletic partners and we just made it.
"Definitely more on the faceoff guys than the wings," he said. "(Croonquist) initially won the ball to himself more than I had the chance to get it out to my teammates. It's always on the faceoff guys first no matter what happens because I should be able to put the ball wherever I want to. If I'm not doing that, the wings can't really help because they don't know which way he's putting the ball."
"I do believe some day we’re going to win that game," Howard Triche said on Tuesday evening. "We won’t know it, but we’re going to win it. We’ll find out it was a mirage that didn’t really happen. It was just a bad dream. We’re going to wake up one morning and we’ll learn that, really, we won it."

When Beilein was at LeMoyne, Teddy would sit on the bench during games.
