    Re: Good article....even if it is BR

    During a free throw I think, I heard a hawkeye feminine hygiene product yell "Paris Hilton Magic". I'm sure he was thinking that he was really brilliant with that one. I wonder what he was thinking after the game.

    Is that one of her movies? Because that makes zero sense.

    Re: Good article....even if it is BR

    BR has been making a concerted effort to hire good writers, especially in pro and college basketball, recently. I almost think they should consider a name change, given how much bad reputation their current one has.

    This is a nice Paris Hilton. Maybe it's known for being magical as well?

    Fran Fraschilla was at the game as a spectator. I guess he was going to be announcing a game in KC on Saturday, and wanted to visit Hilton.

    Re: Good article....even if it is BR

    good article. And the comments afterwards are about, of course, the students rushing the court.

    I'm just going with the assumption that ANYONE who complains about the court rushing is just jealous they couldn't be there.

    Re: Good article....even if it is BR

    I was surprised by the quality of the article. But more so shocked that there was a non-Kansas article in the Big 12 section of BR. If I only got my info off of BR it'd assume that the Big 12 was a one team league.

    Re: Good article....even if it is BR

    I've noticed a change with B/R as of late. A lot of writers that used to spew out crap are gone now, and less ******** articles like the one that was claiming Duke would run the table last season don't show up as much, not to mention more writing about either CBB in general or about the non mainstream teams instead of only Ohio State, Kansas, Duke, and Kentucky articles.

    I could of sworn the hawk fan yelled "where's Hilton Magic?!". To which I thought after ginger missed his free throws, there it is. But if he actually said "Paris Hilton Magic".. then oh my god lol.

    As for BR, their team-stream app is very cool. Gives you a feed of your favorite teams stories not just from BR, but other websites like ESPN, Yahoo, etc.
