Rushing the court

4 March 2010

From Rick Reilly’s article in ESPN magazine online today about how out of control rushing the court has gotten recently:

“Therefore, here are the Ironclad and Unbreakable Rushing-the-Court Rules. From now on, you can NOT rush the court if …

  • You’ve won an NCAA title in the past 20 years. [Debatable…I’d say if Arkansas, UCLA, or UNLV were to win big game, they could rush the court.]
  • You’ve been in the Final Four in the past five years.
  • The team you just beat is not in the top three. [What if you’re unranked and the team you beat was? You could potentially rush the court then.]
  • Or is ranked within 15 rungs of you. (Somebody do the math for Wake.)
  • Or is really a football school. This includes Florida, Texas and Ohio State. Get over it.
  • You’ve beaten this same team in the past five years.
  • You won the stupid game by more than 10 points. There is no such thing as a PRTC (Premeditated Rush The Court.)
  • You’re a university and you just beat a college.
  • Coach K comes to your coach’s clinic.
  • You have a dead-mortal-lock lottery pick on your team.
  • Your team has appeared in a recent “One Shining Moment”.
