Sports Pickle and Yardbarker are two of the dumbest farking names for a sports site possible. I did not click the link, let me guess.

The aforementioned talentless 7-footer
The one-and-done freshman
The JUCO transfer
The 20-point-a-game player that plays only three games because of academics
The hustler

List fails without "foreign import who dominated some third world league but contributes nothing to the team."

Sweet. #4 is my nephew.

I want to strangle the man in the picture for #4.

Agree on the Foreign Import and Hustler, but not every team has a one-and-done, or an academic liability.

fastbow: I want to strangle the man in the picture for #4.


To be clear: I'm not actually related to the guy in the pic. But I have a nephew who is basically in the #4 role on a college team now. Except that he would never brag about being able to drop 40 (he's about as soft-spoken as any player out there). Plus, he plays defense.

For the Lobos there's #6, the coach's son.

You forgot "Greatest Point Guard in the World", otherwise known as Phil Pressey.

It's nothing against your nephew. I just hate Northern Iowa.

Right, I didn't think you were making it a personal comment... pay no attention to me.

What do I care what he did to some birds in the NCAA? That's ok. Stings a little, but KU's got bigger fish to fry. I'm not even really a KU fan. No, why I hate them is because I had to watch their knuckle-dragging KKK asses mouth-breathe their way through the Missouri Valley far too many times. While their bland style of basketball isn't QUITE as bad as SIU in their heyday, it's damned close.

Serious about that KKK comment though. One time coming to Koch Arena, they had the single whitest basketball team I have ever seen outside of a documentary about basketball in the 1960s.

Were they wearing white hoods during the game and burning crosses at half time? Because if they weren't, this might be the dumbest thing I've read today.

Wow, that went from zero to 60 in nothing flat. So much for it not being anything personal.

Never met anyone with Northern Iowa hate before. Maybe because I'm 1,000 miles away?

3/5, not bad. You're missing the super athletic guy who can dunk the ball but not do anything else and the dude who takes seventy 3-point shots a game, even if he's missing 68 of them.

Well, it's an unremarkable team at a small state school in Iowa, a state where 97% of the population is white. Not like they're doing national recruiting.

Assuming that they're keeping 12 players on the roster, there's still around a 70% chance that a random distribution of race would present an all-white team pulling from that population.

Uhhhh, ok.

This sounds eerily like all the "fark that towelhead Farokhmanesh" comments all the KU fans were making on Phog.net after Northern Iowa punked them. Oh those rich white hipster kids in Lawrence are so progressive.

So like 99% of the NBA

These guys are the reason i find college basketball so interesting. It's a rare college that can field 5 good basketball players, so one of the five is always an 'unique' player.

I was a freshman at Georgia Tech when Bobby Cremins started. As much I enjoyed watching the furute NBA-stars Mark Price and John Salley, I also enjoyed Lee Goza and John Martinson.

He's a Wichita fan. Give him a break, there's something in the water that makes them all delusional threadshiatters. For instance, they truly believe they could join the Mountain West despite not having football.

So glad that for once Michigan doesn't have any of those players among those who get major minutes. Athletic freak can actually play ball, 7 footer has some athleticism, crazy good shooter may take 1-2 more shots than he should but he also hits 54% from 3. Throw in a good point guard and the team is just a blast to watch. Putting up 78 points in about 28 minutes yesterday was just crazy.
