The Biggest Loser

For the second straight day, the resident Nebraskan,R.Gray drops by to talk a little basketball. With conference tournaments starting up yesterday in the major conferences, I decided to examine my most disappointing teams through the regular season. The top four fall within the Big 12, ACC, Big East, and Pac 10 conferences. #4 Texas In […]

More Than A Guarantee

This is our very first guest post here at No Guts and it comes from my Nebraskan buddy, R. Gray. Seeing as though he has no blog of his own, I can’t link to his sweet collection of thoughts. Maybe one day he will be able to jot them down here full time. That’s if […]

Billy Donovan Is Forced To Wonder What Could Have Been

I have mixed feelings about bringing this story to you. On one hand, I’m completely ecstatic that the Florida Gator basketball team has struggled over the past few years. But on the other hand, I realize how lucky we all are that a one Tyler Hansbrough had a late change of heart. Let me take […]

Whatever Happened To Having A Home And An Away Jersey?

The picture above is what us basketball purists like to call “hustle”. It’s the way the game is supposed to be played. But there’s just one issue with this picture. Which player plays for the home team? Is it the guy in the Kentucky blue or the guy in the Vandy gold? Why can’t I […]

Add Ensuring PAC 10 Coaches Have Freedom Of Speech To President Obama’s To Do List.

Tim Floyd has been ejected a time or two during his coaching career so it’s only right for him to head the crusade for freedom of speech for coaches in the PAC 10 and across the nation. And what a better way to accomplish his goal than to put his request at the feet of […]

Being Greg Paulus

Over the years, Duke has always had players that the nation loved to hate. The hate mainly came about because those players would walk into your school’s gym, light your team up, and run off the court with a 20 point victory. Names like Laettner, Hurley, Battier, Reddick, and most recently Greg Paulus have all […]
