Mullen to UF - what do you think the chances are of that after this year? - Papa Purple and Gold on 10/15/14 at 4:46 pm
obviously he could run for mayor of Starkvegas right now but with the uncertainty in Gainesville surrounding Muschamp and considering his previous ties to UF, it seems a logical fit. I think he could wreck the SEC if that happened. what say you?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (15)
if/when Antonio Blakeney teams up with Ben Simmons at LSU... - Papa Purple and Gold on 9/16/14 at 6:46 pm
expectations for Tiger hoops will absolutely skyrocket. Maybe even start thinking about cutting down the nets too. Especially if Gray, Mickey, and Martin are all back next year. Let's change our mentality get this program to where it should be and to where it needs to be. [link=(http://www.cbs...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (7)
Dangerous/sleeper team in college football this year? - Papa Purple and Gold on 8/7/14 at 2:11 pm
I say Ole Miss. Wallace returns as a senior and their young talent is a year more experienced. Could make a ton of noise in that west division, maybe even make a surprise run to Atlanta....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (8)

In your honest opinion - top 25 jobs in college basketball? - Papa Purple and Gold on 7/24/14 at 10:28 am
things fluctuate in this sport more than many others. Think about some of the programs which have come and gone from the elite ranks over the years. Seton Hall, UNLV, Utah, Arkansas, etc. Curious to know what you think. I think it's very subjective and arguments can be made for several programs....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (13)

Who advances to the Final Four? - Papa Purple and Gold on 3/25/14 at 3:39 pm
not necessarily based on who you have in your bracket, just based on the matchups which are now set. I'll also add don't sleep on Shabazz Napier and the Huskies. Looking forward to the games this weekend. Aaron Gordon and the Wildcats may have been the most impressive team that I saw in the openi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (14)

Jay Bilas: "I'd say it (LSU) is one of the top 20 jobs in college basketball" - Papa Purple and Gold on 3/4/14 at 12:11 pm
Jay Bilas on the LSU job after the departure of John Brady as head coach. Does this ring true in your mind? I think major fluctuations for programs are natural more so in college hoops than in any other sport comparably. Look at Arkansas and Michigan, in particular. Arky was a national pow...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)
Does John Calipari start to feel some heat at Kentucky? - Papa Purple and Gold on 3/2/14 at 12:15 pm
they were the preseason #1 ranked team in the country yet are limping into the postseason possibly unranked in the new polls. The freshmen class of Randle and the Harrison twins was being hyped as possibly the best ever. Last year was a massive disappointment for them too in losing to Robert Morri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)

without knowing the brackets yet of course, but we are slowly nearing the home stretch of the season. As weird as it sounds, I think UK can be deemed a sleeper going in as a 3 or 4 seed. So young but so talented in the interior with Randle and Cauley-Stein. Cuse UF Kansas UVA - my off the ra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (10)
