Anniversary Flashback: Presidential Basketball Program

Much like the Banshee, President Obama's basketball
skills don't match up with his love of the game.
The 5th anniversary celebration of Banshee Sports continues.  Each month, I will be selecting a post from the past to bring back for old times sake.  Choosing February's piece turned out to be a hard task.  Despite being the shortest month of the year, several of my favorite posts of all time have been posted in February.

When I posted my arguments in favor of the Colts parting ways with Peyton Manning in 2012, I was very proud of that piece.  The sports movie list from 2013 was a labor of love that was several weeks in the making.  I was also very passionate about my 2013 take on the mythical stature of Michael Jordan.

But, after consulting with a core group of close advisors, I settled on a selection that sets Banshee Sports apart from the rest of the sports blog world.  As I stated in my very first post on this blog, Banshee Sports was never intended to be the go-to site for in-depth analysis of the Tampa 2 defense.  Banshee Sports is at its best when it combines a little bit of history and a little bit of humor with its sports.

This President's Day post from 2014 does exactly that.  Although, in hindsight, I did not give proper weight to team chemistry when I wrote this post.  I was so excited to write about President Taft getting stuck in his bathtub that I forgot that he and Teddy Roosevelt could not really play well together after the Bull Moose Party debacle and the Presidential election of 1912.  Nonetheless, this is still a fun read.

President's Day is upon us.  Naturally, this got me thinking about what American Presidents would make up a successful college basketball program.  It takes more than just the guys on court to have a successful program, so this post is going to give you a breakdown of everything from athletic directors to coaches to boosters Click here to continue reading.
