Athlon Sports College Hoops Zine

Just looking at the covers for this year’s Athlon Sports College Basketball Annual and quite a few of our C-USA/A-10 brethren are on the respective covers. I suspect we’ll get stuck with the ACC one in Charlotte…






BTW, goes on sale September 1st.

I suspect you’re right Run. What a shame. Didn’t we have one a few years back w/ Jobey on the cover? Or was that just produced in small quantity for our fans?

Street & Smith’s (published in Charlotte) did a limited run cover for the Niners in 2001.

Do they have the Cards as the pre-season #1 ?

Geez, you have to go back to jobey to find a cover. Try going back Cornbread Maxwell and you might find an article.

The magazine is suppossed to be on shelves now. Anyone picking it up? If I see it I will take a glance. It’s the first full rankings released this year as far as I know(at least from a credable source).

From Athlon…
