The Mr. Monopoly boosters at a bigger school then throw stupid money at said Sweet 16 coach, daring him to turn it down. Usually, he doesn’t. Charles Barkley and the rest of the March Madness studio wonks should be talking about Boyle, the longtime CU Buffs basketball coach, in the same breath as Purdue’s Matt Painter or Maryland’s Mark Turgeon.

Over the last 75 years, the Buffs have managed just 15 squads that went on to win at least 10 conference tilts in a campaign. Seven of those are Tad teams. Four former Buffs were on NBA rosters at the start of the 2020-21 season . … [Read more...] about Keeler: Charles Barkley should be singing praises of CU Buffs coach Tad Boyle.

Don’t ever show your face at Ohio State … I hope you die, I really do.” Liddell posted screenshots of the messages to his Twitter page Friday. “Honestly, what did I do to deserve this? I’m human,” he said: Honestly, what did I do to deserve this? I’m human. pic.twitter.com/djXzhSH0q8 — E.J.
