Tuesday Morning Dump

I don't like expansionocalypse. I don't like reading about it, thinking about it, discussing it or even linking to posts about it. But you all have given me no other choice. I beg of you, PLEASE START WRITING ABOUT BASKETBALL AGAIN. PLEASE.

- First we start off with a bit of shameless self-promotion. The B.I.A.H staff was on-hand at the Hoop Group Northern Virginia Top 100 Showcase this past weekend, and provided some write-ups and analysis on the guys who stood out at the event

- This is the funniest thing you will read all day: UConn's ACC admission's application

- Gary Parrish believes the Big East will survive

- Jerry Carino details what Plan A and Plan B might be for Big East basketball survival

- Despite an all-out recruitment pitch, Seton Hall was unable to land Kyle Anderson. The highly-touted recruit decided on UCLA instead. Speaking of UCLA, senior Jerime Anderson has been suspended for the first two games of the season following his arrest for laptop theft

- What's this? Jim Boeheim says something I agree with? This is new

- Andy Katz details what could have been for Big-XII basketball

- Wait a minute, now TCU is going to stay in the MWC? This realignment crap is turning out like a bad game of Risk

- A solid preview of some of the better games on Penn's 2011-2012 schedule

- While discussing conference realignment over the weekend, I mentioned that maybe conferences should start to merge. @Ballinisahabit said that conference mergers were almost impossible and will probably never happen. Well, I'm glad to see he's once again proven wrong. Or so we are being told by The Nova Blog

- Iowa State got a commitment from Sherron Dorsey-Walker

- Tickets for the first annual Champions Classic go on sale soon

- Yes, this realignment article is geared towards football, but it has charts. Charts with numbers and colors
