Good for Steve Fisher for calling out the NCAA for their ridiculous practice of booting out the losing team from the premises mere hours after a tournament loss. During tourney broadcasts, you’ll see several commercials from the NCAA about “what it means to be a student-athlete,” but it’s just audience calibration. The actions of that association show how little they regard the students they supposedly aim to protect. The more Fisher and other coaches can shed light on this hypocrisy, the better.
Charles Barkley is fairly genuine for a basketball broadcaster, so his opinion means a little more. Longhorns fans should be happy with his endorsement.
If you believe team slogans have an impact on performance, perhaps this story will interest you. I’m a bit dubious of that idea, however.
For those so inclined to wager on college basketball.
