Though I'm true blue, I bleed RED... The rare species of hybrid fan that I call a CATBIRD (a fan of U of L and U of K basketball). I lived on Tobacco Road for 25 years spending much of my time between Chapel Hill and Duke's campuses (I love Duke/hate the Heels), I currently reside in the land of liars, lizards, and snakes...oh my! A cultural, natural and physical swamp... an amusement park lowland I affectionately dub Gatorworld.

Here, there are no hard fast rules, no bonus points for integrity, no atta boys for insuring good over evil. Nothing here is unquestionably illegal, unless you are among the serfdom. We're politically iffy, sunnily dispossessed, franchise abundant, disenfranchise dependent. Win or Cheat, our State motto.

Right or Wrong, I love college basketball. I try to stay informed... and sometimes I am.

There is much disinformation in the air about the game, it's players, and the institutions both commercial and public that reap HUGE benefits by their existence. It's a dog eat dog world, and college basketball is one shining example.

I must admit to having a growing disillusionment about college sports for the same reason I hate professional sports...M-O-N-E-Y. It's all-pervasive tenacles are beginning to choke Universities and in-turn their sports programs are being used for purposes other than their stated goals.

But... sometimes I just see the fun.

I'm opinionated, but fair and like to think my biases are based on solid facts. I welcome dissention with intelligent, articulation... and offer a unique brand of my own. I can be mean, but try to stay calm in the midst of idiocy and one upmanship. I hate the hater and the sock puppet alike.

My message to all fans of the game: LOSE THE HATE, you cannot win, but if you lose... too late. and too little time 2 great.
