Thursday Morning Dump

- Eamonn Brennan opens up the weekly hoops mail bag

- Steve Lavin will not be in attendance when his St. John's team takes on Kentucky at Rupp Arena tonight. This will be the third straight game and fourth this season he's missed while recovering from prostate cancer surgery

- I missed this from late on Tuesday, but Pat Forde believes that Jim Boeheim is "out of touch" and just doesn't get "it"

- Now the Syracuse accusations are just getting bizarre: Former Syracuse players had sex with Bernie Fine's wife?

- Marshall Plumlee, the youngest of the M. Plumlees, is going to redshirt at Duke

- The Alabama program is off to it's best start in nine years. They have a chance to open even more eyes with a win against Georgetown tonight in the Big East/SEC Invitational

- Syracuse' Fab Melo had his court hearing yesterday. If he stays out of trouble for a year, his fourth degree mischief charge will go away

- You know what, maybe this is the year Northwestern finally makes the NCAA Tournament

- Building the Dam wonders if the Beavers can be legitimate contenders in the Pac-12

- Chris Dobbertean takes a look at the early-season tournaments in 2012 (It's never to early for Blogging The Brackets)

- Brian Gregory is looking into the past in order to build the future at Georgia Tech

- A solid breakdown of some early season surprises in the Pac-12

- Are any America East coaches on the hot seat?

- Northern Kentucky will join the D-I ranks next season and is now looking to join the Atlantic Sun Conference

- Minnesota got a huge, confidence-boosting win over Virginia Tech last night

- What would the Ultimate Kentucky Player look like?

- Yeah, I agree. Miami isn't going to be hoops-relevant

- Florida front-courter Erik Murphy could be back as early as next week, this coming a week after reports surfaced indicating Murphy would miss a large portion

- It looks like Providence's Kadeem Batts will end up serving a 10-12 game suspension instead of a 8-9 game suspension

- Another freshman has decided to leave Oregon. Bruce Barron joins Jabari Brown as the frist-year players that haven't lasted a month under Dana Altman

- Temple's Michael Eric is expected to miss six weeks due to a right patella injury

- Digital Hoops Blast details Harvard's excellent social media tactics

- I'm glad somebody got this: MSU cheerleader fell last night and had to be taken off on a stretcher. No serious injuries as of yet. Which is good, because, she's kinda hot

- The Westboro Baptist Church is going to protest Syracuse's home game against Florida on Friday. You have to check out this flyer (So if God hates raping coaches, does he enjoy raping children?)

Don't give up. Don't ever give up.
