Wednesday Morning Dump

- I'm liking this Dave Telep to ESPN move. Here is Telep with a great read on what leads to a decommitment.

- Gary Parrish on which coaches have the hottest seats.

- In honor of the NBA season tip-off, Dan Hanner put together a fantastic list of former college players currently on NBA rosters.

- Mike Miller provides a fantastic list of 15 freshman that will have an impact AND stick around more than one season.

- One quick note about Memphis guard Jelan Kendrick -- there is a report out there that Kendrick is considering transferring. Well, he's not. This report also says his suspension was a mutual agreement.

- The 2011 NCAA Tournament seems like ages away, but that doesn't mean we can have an early tournament primer. Chris Dobbertean breaks down this season's tournament info.

- The official unofficial 2010-2011 NCAA All-Name Team (Wait, that's our own link! We are allowed to link to our own site? Right?)

- John Brady, the head coach of Arkansas State, is not exactly a fan of the new Sun Belt scheduling policy.

- Roy Skinner, the all-time winningest coach in Vanderbilt history, passed away this week at the age of 80

- Speaking of NBA rosters, Jeff Eisenberg takes a look at the top college stars from a season ago that were left off on NBA rosters. And on that same note, Scottie Reynolds has left his team in Italy.

- It's no shock that Wichita State was picked to win the Missouri Valley Conference.

- Part six of Rush The Court's series on the life of a Mid-Major

- Hey, remember when Matt Howard, not Gordon Hayword was suppose to be the star player for the Butler Bulldogs? Well, with Hayword gone to the NBA, Howard will once again be the team's front-court focal point.

- Duquesne guard Eric Evans broke his foot this week during practice and will be out for the first two months of the season

- After a hot start the pre-season recruiting period, West Virgina is starting to go in the opposite direction. Still, the program did get two players back into the fold yesterday, as Casey Mitchell was reinstated and walk-on Johnnie West was allowed to rejoin the team.

- Durrell Summers, Michigan State's resident-aviator, is looking to build off of past post-season success.

- Emmanuel Negedu is getting a second second-chance at hoops at New Mexico.

- You know what? Marty Simmons might be the head coach of a team picked to finish dead-last in the Missouri Valley Conference, but he is more of a man than I will ever be.

Equal parts impressive and adorable:

I'm not going to lie, I've never really liked the Big Blue Nation. I haven't hated them, but I certainly haven't liked them. That's why I'm kinda happy-slash-ecstatic that this Big Blue rap video is so terribly awful
