The Degenerate Bet of the Day: Mar 23, 2015

Mr. Manifesto doesn’t gamble on sports, but I know of plenty of people who do.  This includes the mysterious Barry Oh, who I’ve recruited to give his basketball bet of the night every night for you degenerates out there.  Every night we’ll bet an imaginary $100 on our pick, and will keep a running total throughout […]

2015 Consensus NBA Mock Draft: Pre-NCAA Tournament Edition

(Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports)   Duke’s Jahlil Okafor continues to lead the way, but look out below – Kentucky’s Karl Towns is coming on fast, and is actually the top pick on some mock draft boards. Rather than fill cyberspace up with yet another mock draft, The Hoops Manifesto has determined the consensus top 60 […]

Missner’s Manifesto: The Big East’s Big Dance Chances

  Over the past months, my feelings about a lot of things related to basketball have changed. Maybe Kansas can produce decent NBA players. Similarly, perhaps Andrew Wiggins is not the next Corey Brewer. My feelings about the Big East, however, have not changed since I wrote about Villanova (against former Big East team, Syracuse) […]

Missner’s Manifesto: In Praise of Kris Dunn

  For someone who writes about college basketball, I have something kind of strange to admit: I have watched much less college basketball this year than in past years. I used to try to watch multiple games each Saturday and a few during the week. This year, I have been content to choose my college […]

Missner’s Manifesto: On Aztecs and Broncos

  I spent my formative years rooting for teams that were defensively oriented. There was, of course, the ’85 Bears, the greatest defense in any sport ever assembled. In baseball, I liked pitchers like Rick Sutcliffe and smooth fielders such as Jerome Walton. Andre Dawson was known as the Hawk because of his ability to […]

Missner’s Manifesto: LSU & Florida – Mediocrity Personified

  Had the world bent to my needs last night, I would have gone to watch the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns and been able to report back on the live experience of Division 1 basketball. Sadly, I was unable to read the schedule correctly and was unwilling to travel to Dallas to watch the Cajuns take […]
