Thursday Morning Dump

What You May Have Missed: Rob Dauster, aka @Ballinisahabit had himself one-helluva Wednesday. He provided us with two fantastic articles that offer perspectives not commonly though of on a day-to-day basis. First up, why college hoops and BCS football need to go their separate ways. Second, Nolan Smith exemplifies why twitter isn't as bad as most coaches make it out to be

- Andy Katz plays the expansionocalypse "What If" game

- Wait, what?!? Christian Laettner's shot in 1992 ISN'T the biggest shot in Duke basketball history? I don't believe that for a second. Not only is it the biggest athletic play in the history of the enitre university, but it's arguably a top-5 all-time CBball moment

- Luke Winn continues his series of positional rankings for the efficiency era ('02-'12). Should there really be any surprise who the most efficient shooting guard in the past decade was?

- Dana O'Neil took a survey of current coaches to find out which arenas were considered the best, and which were on bucket lists. Other ESPN analysts dish on the toughest arenas they ever played in . Andy Katz and Eamonn Brennan discuss their favorite arenas

- You know what Eamonn Brennan? I've been pondering about this idea too. Will it ever happen? Of course not. But that doesn't mean it might not actually work, because I think it would.

- You won't find a better European site for American college hoops than Czwarta Kwarta. Sure, I have no clue what "Czwarta Kwarta" means, but if you have Google Chrome, you can translate it into English. Check out their great video analysis of the EuroBasket match-up between Jonas Valanciunas and Enes Kanter

- Washington's Abdul Gaddy has a pretty crazy goal he is trying to reach this off-season

- Loyola (Il) senior point guard Courtney Stanley tore his ACL and will be out for the entire season

- VUHoops wants to know who should be inducted into the VUHoops Hall of Fame this year

- Rush The Court continues their terrific series of schedule breakdowns by previewing the fixtures for the reigning National Champions

- A solid-read on the difference between a good rivalry and a bad rivalry

- Matt Norlander details Wright State's off-season trip to Italy

- Michigan's basketball arena isn't exactly "The Big House", but it's definitely getting better, thanks to a new face-lift that includes the addition of new seats

- Indiana's full schedule is out

- Michigan announced it's 2011-2012 schedule yesterday

- George Washington released it's new schedule and Colonial fans like it

- A great breakdown of Xavier's full schedule

- A lengthy-but-entertaining breakdown of the Hofstra Fightin' Charles Jenkins/Flying Dutchmen Pride's 2011-2012 schedule

- Albany's schedule for the upcoming season is out

- St. Louis has announced it's schedule as well

- A plethora of conference breakdowns from A Daly Dose of Hoops: America East, Atlantic Sun, Big Sky, Big South

- Searching for Billy Edelin is actually going to search for Billy Edelin (#Catch22)

I thought professors at places like Duke spent their summers doing studies and writing doctorials and other academic mumbo-jumbo like that.

Clearly I was wrong.
