Friday Morning Dump

- You've seen it by now, but the must-read of the day comes courtesy of Dana O'Neil, who anonymously interviewed 20 coaches about the pitfalls of recruiting. Along those same lines, Jay Bilas has some questions he wants answered about the sport of college basketball.

- The other must read today is from Jason Whitlock, who says to blame the NCAA for issues with agents, not Reggie Bush. I tend to agree.

- Good read on Tony Wroten, the 2011 point guard out of Washington that is the third high profile recruit that looks like he will come down to the Huskies and Kentucky.

- Eventually, John Calipari is going to learn not to mix sports and politics. First, the president. Now, the governor.

- Mike DeCourcy had a chance to catch up with Quincy Miller. And, it seems, Miller is one hell of an interview subject.

- Dan Dakich, a graduate of Indiana, the former coach at Bowling Green, and the guy that was named the interim coach after the Kelvin Sampson debacle at IU, will be heading to the ESPN studios to become an analyst.

- Luke Winn ranks the top 20 players at this year's Euro championships.

- Pitt is the fifth best college sports program? Wow.

- USA Today's Rob Harrington on the themes of the summer thus far.

- The knock on Maryland is their inability to land the talent that is present in the DMV, the Beltway region, and in Baltimore. That might change, as the Terps are set to hire Orlando "Bino" Ranson, a noted recruiter.

- Seth Greenberg here, commenting on the "First Four".

- Jon Scheyer sounds like he got a pretty nasty eye injury.

Be careful hitting the links with Draymond Green:
