Even though I’m leaving for the Final Four in Houston tomorrow, the chat will go on! Tonight’s chat will be deemed the special Final Four edition, so everyone must join in.
As always, please follow the chat from the Twitter account @SusanShanChat. There is only one requirement: please hashtag all tweets with #SSsports. To find out more about the chat, click here. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you’ve made the highlights!
For tonight’s #SSsports Twitter Chat, we will discuss the following topics:
1. NCAA FB: The firing of Fiesta Bowl CEO John Junker is only the tip of the iceberg when probing into the depths of BCS corruption. Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports wrote an excellent column on just how screwed up the BCS system really is. Universities are actually losing money by participating in bowl games. Huh?! Can anything be done about the spiraling corruption or are we just doomed?
2. NCAA FB: Four former Auburn players are claiming that they received money from the university. Other players are shooting down the claims and giving other versions of the story. What are your thoughts on the validity of the claims?
3. NCAA BB: John Calipari and Jim Calhoun are “cordial” toward each other. Their long and competitive history will make Saturday’s Final Four matchup even more intense and personal. Who will prevail?
