This craptastic night of CBB isn't really threadworthy, but Iona-Manhattan is heading for 2OT on ESPNU.

So Baylor is Adidas for men's basketball but Nike for football and women's basketball
I know we've talked about Grambling's basketball ineptitude somewhere before, but I can't find the thread. Anyway, we might very well (not) be watching the worst Division I team in history. With four games to go (all of which should find them as double-digit underdogs), they're 0-23, closest loss was by 10, average loss is by 28.8.
KenPom apparently considers Prairie View's 1991-1992 team the current titleholder. Relatively comparable since they're both in the SWAC. They were 0-28, closest loss also by 10, average loss by 34.4. However, I'd argue the current state of college baskeball skews those numbers a bit. Indeed, the Prairie View team managed to score 65.2% of their opponents' point total. Grambling has only managed 62.8% this season.
I think if Grambling loses out it is the worst team of the modern era. It's close, though. That Prairie View team only had two scholarship players. Grambling apparently has 7 or 8.
Schools that have never made the NCAA Tournament — the 2014 edition http://wp.me/plDgR-1WQ
I have no idea which thread to put this but a 2014 recruit (NC State, Wake, Tulane and Oklahoma State were targeting him, among others) collapsed on the court last night and died.

"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
That's awful. When I was in my late 20's I was playing pickup bball with a group of friends and a friend who was easily the best athlete, healthiest, most in shape among us dropped dead of a heart attack on the court. He had just been admitted to Medical School. Toughest funeral I've ever been to.

This one is for Hogie.
Initial reaction upon seeing this clip of Bill Russell jumping from near the free-throw line and over a defender for a layup: WHAT?

Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Yout be able to properly wrap your mind around this insane catch from N.C. State center fielder Brett Williams. A full-speed diving catch that smoothly transitions into a mid-air somersault should be impossible to pull off, which is precisely what makes this clip so enjoyable.
I don't know what you mean, but it had the cadence of a joke.
Loses points because of which team caught it.
Um, yes please (on both accounts)
it was a real bummer during last night's game to find out that Rodney Rogers was paralyzed.
Bobby Knight's new book.
Your book, “The Power of Negative Thinking,” presents what could be considered an anti-Pollyanna vision of the world. I have to agree that eternally optimistic positive thinkers are incredibly annoying.
When I first started coaching, one of the worst things that I think I heard was “It will be O.K.” I would wonder, How the hell is it going to be O.K.? The worst word in the English language is “hope.”
You were not a fan of sportswriters, calling them “one or two steps above prostitution.” Later, the press seemed almost gleeful in reporting allegations that you verbally and physically abused players, which ultimately got you dismissed from Indiana in 2000. In retrospect, was it a mistake not to be friendlier to reporters?
No, not at all. I enjoyed needling the press. If I didn’t enjoy it, I wouldn’t have done it. Writers have rarely played, so as a coach you have antagonistic feelings about some guy writing up the story of the game who’s never even attempted to play it.
Whenever you’re written about, inevitably there are mentions of your throwing a chair across the court, and your conviction — in absentia — for assaulting a Puerto Rican police officer while you were coaching the 1979 Pan-American Games.
Those things were inconsequential to me, and what somebody wrote was inconsequential to me. It’s just something that I ignored.
But did you see this behavior as somehow integral to victory?
That’s my answer. Let’s go onto something else. I’m tired of this.
Myles Brand, the former Indiana University president who fired you, died in 2009. What did you think when you heard?
I didn’t like the guy. In fact, the first time I ever did anything with him, I said, “This guy will be a problem for a lot of people here.” I felt that way when he was alive, and I felt that way when he was dead — and never wasted any time on it.
Indiana’s current coach, Tom Crean, has been trying to get you back to Bloomington to have some sort of homecoming. I imagine you’d receive a hero’s welcome.
I don’t need a hero’s welcome. What do I need a hero’s welcome for? Obviously I don’t have any interest in going back, or I would have, it’s that simple.
Imagine you were allowed to edit your own obituary. Is there anything you’d choose to leave out?
Well, seeing as I won’t be able to, I would simply quote Clark Gable. Quite frankly, I just don’t give a damn.

Why are modes dumping premium threads onto the sports board? (Stoglin)
I think the lamest part is someone censoring something they don't deem "premium worthy" by dumping it on the sports board (yet we still can't read it).
