THREE FOR BART: Siri, HBO, Rebounds

THREE FOR BART: Siri, HBO, Rebounds

  1. To Siri With Love – She may frustrate us and we may find her utterly useless. She doesn’t always come up with what we need. One time, following an impassioned speech by one of my bosses to our entire marketing department and every agency we work with, from my pocket, Siri noted, “I’m sorry I don’t understand what you just said.” It was perfectly ill timed. Siri isn’t perfect. But sometimes she is…

Oregon Ducks Basketball Preview: Mighty Joe Young

Oregon Ducks Basketball Preview: Mighty Joe Young

I’m not sure whether or not to post this preview or not. Day by day it becomes increasingly difficult to follow what’s going on around this program. One day it’s Jaquan Lyle – the prized recruit and presumed starting PG – being removed from the online roster. The next day it’s two more arrests and ‘internal discipline” (Dana’s words). And then Lyle’s back in the mix, attending the IMG Academy,…

Washington Huskies Basketball Preview: Inside the Tunnel

Washington Huskies Basketball Preview: Inside the Tunnel

They’ve won fewer games than the year prior for three consecutive years. The recruiting has gone stagnant; they literally had no 2012 class. Last season was the worst defense (104.5 Drtg) that LoRo has ever put on a court. The program’s struggles are quantifiable if not palpable. Average attendance at Hec Ed since 2011 has grossly declined: 9650, 8785, 7937, 6582. It’s fair to say the seat is…

THREE FOR BART: Projections, Trojans, Me

  1. Projecting college hoops’ leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists- It’s Dan Hanner and Luke Winn. Read it.
  2. USC basketball team will be fast on the court, but progress might be slower– Yesterday we read about how Bob Ryan’s gamers rarely included quotes. That he was going to tell you the story. I love that. You’ll rarely find quotes on here but that’s also in part due to a lack of access.…

USC Trojans Basketball Preview: Andy got a Point Guard

USC Trojans Basketball Preview: Andy got a Point Guard

Well we’re not in El Paso any more, Amanda. Ok, so the Enfields never were in El Paso but I still haven’t come down from Andy’s jab at the guy who used to have his job, Tim Floyd. Nevertheless, getting this Trojan program up to par is going to take a little more than tapping heels and repeating a wishful determination. It’s also going to take more than Katin Reinhardt. But with Byron Wesley…

  1. The Commissioner - I read spots like this and it’s hard not to think we missed out on the ‘good old days’ or something so beyond cool I can’t reconcile doing anything in the current age. Where’s my curbside Midnight In Paris pickup? I want to rub elbows with Larry Bird and crush the loosely illegal bottle of Rose. I’d love to challenge Don Nelson to one-on-one. I instead settle for giddy…

Just in Case: The Leftovers and Your Role

Just in Case: The Leftovers and Your Role

If you didn’t watch HBO’s The Leftovers, it’s hard to say if you really missed out on anything. It’s a show about I-don’t-know-what, during which everything and nothing happens. It’s dark, captivating and confusing. I kinda hated it. I watched every episode.

The show centers on the aftermath of the disappearance, immediate and sudden, of 2% of the world’s population. In one moment, theygone.…

  1. The Limits of Friendship– This is well worth the read and you should note that your intimate circles are generally limited to five, the same number that starts a basketball game. Interesting coincidence? Figure it for yourself. Also, I need to just quote one line from this article because it’s too good not to be highlighted. With regards to the affects of a generation being raised with increased…

Arizona State Basketball Preview: The Guilty Remnant

Arizona State Basketball Preview: The Guilty Remnant

Look, you know my stance on this institution. My intro will therefore take a very matter-o-fact tone. Only later will I decide whether or not to let you fill in the blanks or if I color it for you.

Herb’s contract was extended on the heels of beating Arizona and a return to the NCAA tournament. Herb achieved the tourney invite by playing the fastest brand of basketball he’s ever coached. Not…

  1. Thirteen Ways of Looking at Greg Maddux - It’s rarely about sports. The family, friend, or even stranger next to us. Maybe even the stranger on the field of play. We’re drawn to the connection. Something bigger. And if that connection is ever broke, it’s how small we can feel. Maybe my favorite link I’ve shared on here. And note, this article has nothing to do with Greg Maddux. And everything.
  2. Ma…
