The History of Basketball

Now...a brief history of basketball... The history of basketball began with its invention in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts by Canadian physical education instructor James Naismith as a less injury-prone sport than football. The game became established fairly quickly and grew very popular as the 20th century progressed, first in America and then throughout the world. After basketball became established in American colleges, the professional game followed. The American National Basketball Association (NBA), established in 1946, grew to a multibillion-dollar enterprise by the end of the century, and basketball became an integral part of American culture.

Steve Spurrier happy to be away from the gamecock cloud of awful

Steve Spurrier is a hall of fame coach....A Heisman Trophy winner. He made one mistake in his coaching life. Taking over a horrible gamecock football program. Spurrier seems happier in his new digs at the AAF. He did throw a shot at his former job post game  over the weekend.





It has to be nice to leave the awful that was in Columbia and get a new start! Good luck to the Ole Ball coach in his new job!

Bowl Betting Strategies


The Bowl Season is almost here. A parade of meaningless football games will soon be played out in half empty stadiums. However, when it comes to the world of sports betting, there is no such thing as a meaningless game and bowl games have become a very good way for gamblers who know what they are doing to make a lot of money over the holidays.

 Sports gambling is becoming more mainstream by the day in our country. This has much to do with the Supreme Court striking down the 1992 federal law that prohibited sports gambling in all states except for Nevada. Individual states now get to decide for themselves on whether to legalize sports gambling. Are you wondering when and if you will ever be able to place a bet in USA legally in your state? If so, BettingTop 10 has a great guide where they go talk about each state and when they project them to have legalized sports gambling.

If you are not living in New Jersey or Nevada, your only option for legalized wagering is to join a bowl contest like we are conducting once again this year. You can enter now for the Calloways Bowl Challenge. If you are planning on winning the contest, here are some great tips for picking winners against the spread in bowl games:

FINDING TEAMS THAT ARE MOTIVATED

In general, a team that is making its first bowl appearance ever or its first bowl appearance in a long while is going to be a very motivated side. In addition to wanting to represent their school well, these players will appreciate the fact that they are in a bowl game and work hard in the weeks leading up to it.

The same is also true of teams that have a lot of seniors. Top seniors at the big schools may be on their way to the NFL, but the majority of seniors will be playing their last football game ever in these bowl games. A team loaded with seniors at key positions is likely to play very motivated, from the seniors themselves to the teammates who want to send them off with a win.

Losing in a bowl game the previous year can be another strong motivator for bowl teams. After letting their fans and supporters down the year before, a team that gets another shot at a bowl game the following year should have a chip on its shoulder to earn the win this time around.

LOOKING FOR LETDOWN SPOTS

One of the most obvious letdown spots in college football is when an elite team had its sights set on a huge bowl game, only to fall short and end up in a smaller one.

The Alabama Crimson Tide saw their national championship dreams come crashing down in 2014 in a shocking loss in the Iron Bowl after going 11-0 SU and 7-4 ATS in their previous 11 games. Uninterested in the Sugar Bowl that they landed in, the Crimson Tide lost 45-31 to Oklahoma as a 17-point favorite on the point spread.

Another letdown spot is one in which a team’s head coach has taken another coaching job and has left the team before the bowl game. Many college teams are built like families, and having the coach abandon the team for another one can make it hard for some teams to get up for the bowl game to come.

In some bowl games, you can find both a team that is highly motivated and a team that could be poised for a letdown. In these types of matchups, bettors can usually throw the statistics out the window.

Some schools have tradition....

Clemson released a video showcasing touching Howard's Rockk and running down the hill. This is one of the greatest traditions in College Football.



Some schools have traditions...Some schools have a chicken coming out to fire extinguishers and Techno music.

Happy to be headed to Clemson this weekend! The Comrade will experience this tradition and wish he could change his allegiance.
