This afternoon, it was announced that college basketball’s best rivalry game, Duke vs. North Carolina, which was supposed to be played tonight in Chapel Hill, would be postponed due to the weather. The game has now been rescheduled for February 20th.

Of course, the players are disappointed — this game gets circled on everyone’s calendars the day the schedule comes out. The Tar Heels are especially disappointed because before the game was officially postponed, it was believed that there was a legitimate possibility of it being a students-only game in the Dean Dome, setting up an absolutely one-of-a-kind rivalry atmosphere. A few of the UNC players had been on Twitter politicking for a students-only crowd tonight, and are bummed that it couldn’t come to fruition:

It really is no fun that this game got cancelled tonight, but it’s a matchup that definitely deserves to be played in front of a packed house. I’m sure that the fans will be ready to go in eight short days.

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito had his suspension from the team lifted last week, months after the initial breaking of a bullying scandal involving teammate Jonathan Martin. The players were once friends, but according to Martin, things turned sour as Incognito often fired horrible remarks in his direction. Incognito refutes many of Martin’s claims, and feels that he was betrayed by his teammates — this afternoon he went on a little Twitter tirade about that betrayal:

This story is still a long way from being finished — it will be interesting to see if Martin’s camp addresses the Twitter outburst.

It’s not often that South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium finds itself covered in snow — Columbia averages less than two inches of snowfall annually. But the area has been blanketed with the cold stuff recently, so the Gamecocks have exactly that on their hands: a very snowy field to practice on. Fortunately for the fans, the players aren’t dissuaded by the cold and snow at all, but are embracing the weather, led by quarterback Dylan Thompson:

Steve Spurrier has to love that attitude from his signal-caller.

Tempers are already starting to flare down in North Carolina — last night, a fight broke out between the UNC and Duke team managers a day before the big matchup. We are now less than seven hours away from the most entertaining matchup in college basketball, and it’s time to start getting hyped for it — here’s a short video titled “The Rivalry” that was released by North Carolina athletics:

The ACC Digital Network also released its own hype video for the game:

You’ll want to flip to ESPN at 9:00 tonight — you won’t regret it.

It’s been quite a few weeks for Dee Ford. Not the former Auburn defensive end, however, but the middle-aged English woman who is frequently confused with the football player on social media — their Twitter handles are quite similar, and even football Dee mistakenly told his own followers to tweet her handle in the past. In recently weeks, she has become increasingly popular with Auburn fans because she has started to play along with all of the tweets she receives that aren’t actually intended for her — originally, she was upset at the mix-up.

Today, Ford received a letter and a package of Tigers gear from Auburn AD Jay Jacobs — he promised a few weeks back that he would send gifts:

Here’s what she received:

I guess Auburn has a great new superfan.

Last night, the Michigan Wolverines traveled to Columbus and took the wind right out of the sails of their biggest rivals, the Ohio State Buckeyes. UM claimed a 70-60 victory at Value City Arena, so of course, the Michigan Basketball Twitter account decided to poke a bit of fun at the Ohio State student body:

It’s good to see that the OSU students took the jab in stride, although there wasn’t much that they could say — it’s simply never fun to lose at home to your biggest rival.

It’s not a very well-kept secret that there isn’t much love lost between Kansas and Kansas State. Two days ago, the Wildcats hosted the Jayhawks in Manhattan and came away with an 85-82 victory in overtime, avenging an embarrassing 26-point loss from earlier this season. It hasn’t taken long for KSU to start bragging — check out the shirts that the school is already selling:

Of course, Kansas State beat Kansas 31-10 this fall on the gridiron, and many Kansas fans wrote it off as “wait until basketball season” because that’s undoubtedly the better sport for the Jayhawks. While a series split hardly means that Kansas State should be bragging, it’s true that Wildcats fans did end up waiting until basketball season, only to see their team come out on top at least once. Either way, it’s not hard to imagine KSU fans loving the shirt.

James Franklin is fired up and ready to get things rolling at Penn State, and now he finally has his full staff in place to do so. Yesterday, the school released a pretty interesting video allowing fans to “get to know” all of the new members of that coaching staff — I think Nittany Lions fans are going to like what they see and hear:

Tonight is the night of the greatest rivalry in college basketball, as the Duke Blue Devils will travel eight miles to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels in a hatred-filled ACC battle. That also means that last night, the student managers for each team took part in a game of their own — it is tradition that the managers square off on the hardwood on the night before the big matchup.

Maybe it shouldn’t come as a serious surprise, but a fight broke out during last night’s scrimmage between those students. It appears that a UNC manager threw an absolutely vicious elbow to the face of a Duke one after claiming a rebound, so naturally, a brawl ensued:

You can tune in to the real game tonight at 9:00 EST on ESPN.

NCAA Coaches Are Going To Be Able To Use Snapchat For Recruiting Beginning In August http://thespun.com/news/ncaa-coaches-are-going-to-be-able-to-use-snapchat-for-recruiting-beginning-in-august http://thespun.com/news/ncaa-coaches-are-going-to-be-able-to-use-snapchat-for-recruiting-beginning-in-august#respond Tue, 11 Feb 2014 20:06:13 +0000 http://collegespun.com/?p=76407 Sign of the times.

Recruiting in college sports is already quite an, umm, interesting landscape on a daily basis. Coaches are searching for talent earlier and earlier these days, and it’s not unusual for young athletes to get scholarship offers while they are middle school. Players are bombarded with heaps and heaps of mail, have their phones blown up by coaches, and social media is ridiculous enough in itself — kids are pressured by thousands of fans from schools across the country who would love to see them suit up in their team’s uniform.

And that’s the legal stuff, before rules are bent and broken — recruiting is quite an exhausting process for these players. And now it seems that things are going to get even crazier — beginning August 1st, coaches in basketball and other sports will be able to use Snapchat for recruiting purposes. If you’re unfamiliar, Snapchat is a photo-messaging app that allows users to send messages that essentially self-destruct after a certain, very short time period — in essence, deleting all evidence that a message was ever sent:

The idea of not being able to trace all of the contact between coaches and players is a scary one, especially because nobody will know exactly what is being sent. This is definitely something that is going to be worth keeping an eye on — dirty recruiting could take on a whole new meaning.
