    Jack Taylor

    Just finished reading the USA Today article about Jack.

    In it ISU's Deandre Kane is quoted as calling him "a bum".

    Holy cow. That' a long boring article about a solid player in an irrelevant basketball division.

    The more I read about Grinnell basketball, the more I really don't what they do. Do they even care about winning? Seems like they just want attention.

    Re: Jack Taylor

    Kind of an out of context quote from Kane there. I would like to see the words before and after those words and what kind of question was asked of Kane to provoke that response.

    They are a small liberal arts school that has highly ranked academics. No, they don't. They are literally just having fun out there.

    Re: Jack Taylor

    Was that a sports article or a thesis? JESUS.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    ESPN's Rick Reilly attended a Grinnell game in November. Here's what he had to say.

    Re: Jack Taylor

    Isn't there some controversy that the Grinnell coach is only playing this way to sell his books?

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I'd like to see whoever they play just hold the ball till there are seven seconds on the shot clock on every possession.

    Several years ago ESPN made the fatal mistake of televising a Grinnell game. It was absolutely horrendous. Even the offense was bad. It was like after a long day at the rec, Y, or open gym when everybody had pretty much mailed it in and the "game" had devolved into dudes that shouldn't be jacking up threes doing so.
