Untangle the BCS Puzzle
And I'm still waiting on an explanation on why the 12th ranked, 10-2 Fighting Irish are likely to get a BCS bid over more deserving teams like Wisconsin or whoever loses Saturday's Florida-Arkansas matchup. All in all, the BCS continues to be the most confusing system in sports. How do you see some of these matchups playing out? And what will the computers say?
Is This the Best Freshman Class Ever?
But is this the best freshman class of all time? It just may be. Here are some other memorable classes:
1979: Isiah Thomas (Indiana), Dominique Wilkins (Georgia); James Worthy (North Carolina), Ralph Sampson (Virginia)
1981: Michael Jordan (North Carolina), Patrick Ewing (Georgetown) Ed Pinckney (Villanova), Chris Mullin (St. John's)
1995: Stephon Marbury (Georgia Tech), Vince Carter, Antawn Jamison (North Carolina), Paul Pierce (Kansas), Chauncey Billups (Colorado)
For our money, 1995 is the best of the bunch, but our answer may change in April when we see whether this season's class lives up the hype. Which freshman class is your all-time best?
