Thursday Morning Dump

If you joined us for episode #2 of B.I.A.H Live last night, you noticed that we fixed all our techincal difficulties and even got around to talking about some college basketball. Remember, our next show is Monday (11/1) at 7:00PM EST on

- This is a day old, but Dan Wolken put together a really good piece on Jelan Kendrick and what he is going through at Memphis.

- I'm really liking these postcards that SI is putting out. We've already linked Butler and Villanova, and yesterday Luke Winn posted about his trip to Northwestern, where the Wildcats are looking to make the dance for the first time since basketball was invented.

- A good-read on the point guard battle taking place at UCLA. I'm a big fan of when Jeff Eisenberg churns out material like this. Its shine a beacon of light on all us bloggers. "SEE!!! We can write too!!!"

- It looks like Nevada and Fresno State will be staying in the WAC until 2012.

- Gary Parrish breaks down the best of the non-BCS conferences. And don't worry, today's column is much better than that coaches on the hot seat list he put out, right Goodman?

- Speaking of Goodman, this secret scrimmage list he put out is mouthwatering.

- NC State coach Sidney Lowe is a perennial hot-seat-sitter, so he will need his stellar freshman class to be productive in order to keep his chair relatively cool. BIAH is a fan of NC State this year. Expecting a tournament trip out of the Wolfpack.

- Iowa's top returning scorer and arguably their only good player will be out indefinitely after tearing a ligament in his thumb.

- Top 100 point guard Chasson Randle (likely nominee for '11-'12 All-Name Team) committed to Stanford yesterday. Two other big names committed yesterday as well -- Jevon Thomas is headed to St. John's and Rodney Hood is going to Mississippi State.

- Jay Bilas explains (to insiders only, sorry outsiders) why the NCAA needs to reform before it's too late.

- New Club Trillion Post!!! Mark the Shark knows the only way to separate the men from the boys is by a good-ole-fashioned mustache-growing contest.

- You know what isn't smart? Going after your coach on twitter.

- Wait. The SEC had nine players on their preseason first team and eight on the second team? Someone explain that, please.

- Stony Brook guard Marcus Grouse will be sidelined for 3-6 weeks with a hairline groin fracture (Yeah, I imagine it's as painful as it sounds)

Love the blog. From the SEC link you posted:

"The coaches preseason All-SEC first and second teams consist of a minimum of eight players on each squad, voted on by the SEC Head Men’s Basketball Coaches. No ties were broken and no predicted order of finish was made."

Haha, well then. Maybe we should read a little bit more thoroughly...

Thanks for the heads up. Still kind of weird though. The Big East used to have 10 on their first team, and that didn't include the PoY.
