The 2011-12 season will be the first in which the Ogwumike sisters are regular starters, and they have an uncanny knowledge of where the other is at all times on the court, which makes for some phenomenal plays. They will have strong support from a very talented roster of teammates, and, if everyone remains healthy, have a real chance to bring back a National Championship.

Jocks aint all that smart. I men - what does it take to play in a field with other guys and a ball? The cure from cancer will not come from a jock. Maybe a use for pop tops or something like that - but nothing noteworthy. They are jocks for crying out loud...by definition they cant make it in the real world. they are kids playing games for stupid bucks paid by kids who are not able to play games. Its the dumbest bunch of folks on the planet. Sports...its what you do when you are dumb.
