10.10.07 Fast BreaksPosted by rtmsf on October 10th, 2007
Lots of MSM content coming out this week…
- But first, have you heard that Stanford’s Brook Lopez can’t pass calculus? He’ll be out until he figures out derivatives (presumably Dec. 19, after nine games).
- Along the same lines, the NCAA cleared Marquette big man frosh Trevor Mbakwe to play this season.
- New Mexico swingman and all-Mtn West selection Tony Danridge had surgery on his broken left leg, and is expected to be back by January 2008. Arkansas forward Sonny Weems is due back from his hand injury within the next couple of weeks.
- A hoops pollster explains why college football polling is misguided.
- Shawn Siegel lists the top 25 players in the ACC.
- CSTV claims Louisville and UConn have the top 2008 Big East recruiting classes so far.
- We already know why George Mason will get an at-large bid next spring – one name: Tom O’Connor.
- DeCourcy goes with Chris Lofton as his preseason POY, but there’s no way we think he’ll win it.
- Catching up with coaches… Parrish looks at how Dan Monson is adjusting to life at Long Beach St. Katz examines how Jim Calhoun is recovering from his worst season ever. And the AP reports on John Beilein not knowing what to expect at Michigan.
- Luke Winn also has an interesting Q&A with Jerel McNeal, defensive dynamo at Marquette.
- Finally, the offense that’s taking over the nation – Memphis’s AASAA.
