CANMORE, Alta. — The 4th Annual College Court Report Mascot Mayhem Challenge is now down to its final two mascots who are vying for the title of ‘Top Mascot in the NCAA’.
With the 2017-18 college basketball season less than two weeks away, fans across the country are buzzing with excitement about their respective teams. Several teams have taken part in disaster relief games to raise funds for relief efforts across North America and other parts of the world, which has only added to the buzz.
But, before the season kicks off, there’s one more week of voting in the Mascot Mayhem Challenge to determine the winner.
The Final Four saw two familiar faces taking part, including last year’s winner. Then, there was a newcomer to the challenge entirely, and one who has been a mainstay over the four years, but was in their first Final Four.
Every good basketball site needs a college basketball handicapper, and I bring you into the the world of the Big Man on Campus! I am excited to join College Court Report, and add a new feature to the website.
As the exhibition season begins and Midnight Madness’s get going, I thought it necessary to get in a couple futures as we embark on the season. Futures are a great long term investment, and the motto here is simple.. get to the tournament and you never know from there.
Lets take a look at a couple teams I’ll be personally betting on to cut down the nets in April. Some will be long shots, and the goal there will be to hedge our bets for guaranteed profit!
CANMORE, Alta. — The 2017-18 season kicks off next month, as we are 40 days away from opening day on November 10th.
The excitement is starting to build, both on and off the court, for teams all across the country. Here at College Court Report, we try to drive school spirit across the nation in advance of each season, by virtue of our Mascot Mayhem Challenge.
As of late Sunday night, the field has been cut in half, with 32 mascots advancing to the Round of 32 after a week of voting. There were several surprises across the board, while a few mascots emerged as front-runners for this year’s crown.
July has come and gone, and for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, that means the 2017-18 season is one step closer.
The Irish have had an eventful summer so far, from multiple commitments, to transfers, to schedule releases. Summer work outs are coming to a close and soon, the players will be sent home until their return this fall to start a new school year.
The 2017 Maui Invitational Bracket has been set, and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, along with other powerhouse programs like the Wichita State Shockers, the Michigan Wolverines and the California Bears will headline the tournament set to commence on November 20th 2017.
Notre Dame’s first game in Maui will be against the host Chaminade Silverswords, with a matchup with either the LSU Tigers or Michigan to follow, depending on a first round win or loss.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish released their 2017-18 non-conference schedule Thursday night, with a trip to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans as a part of the ACC/Big 10 Challenge as the highlight.
Apart from what I am expecting to be another tough ACC conference schedule, Notre Dame will take a variety of past and new opponents in their non-conference slot.
