Morning Five: Tax Day Edition

Posted by rtmsf on April 15th, 2010

  1. Yesterday was the first day of the national spring signing period, and there were a couple of mid-major surprises (Butler Effect or just pater familias?) in addition to everyone else in America signing with John Calipari.  Ok, we’re (partially) kidding on the last part, but Cat fans should get used to a revolving door in Lexington for as long as the 1-and-done rule is still in effect.  Here are the updated class rankingsUNC and Memphis both have three 3-star players coming in next season.
  2. Andy Katz introduces us to the 2011 NCAA Tournament Committee chairman, Ohio State AD Gene Smith.  The most interesting part — like seemingly everyone else outside NCAA HQ, he’d prefer that the Tourney stay at 65 teams as well.
  3. A couple of interesting lists here.  First, five players who helped and five players who hurt their stock during the NCAA Tournament, as described by an NBA scout.  This one is five players who should be sticking around for another year, although none of them will be.
  4. Zagsblog is reporting that Rutgers transfer candidate Mike Rosario will visit Florida on Friday.  This would be a solid get for Billy Donovan’s club for the 2011-12 season.
  5. Joe Lunardi has his new 2010-11 Bracketology out, and you’ll note that it assumes a 96-team field.  Enjoy those #12-#21 matchups.

    The 12/21 matchups don’t look too bad, but my god those 16/17 matchups make baby Jesus cry… Alabama/Iowa State? Siena/Wright State? Yikes.

    Although I’ll admit, I’m probably more than a little depressed that even in a 96-team field, UCLA is nowhere to be found…

    12 ACC teams?!? I’m an ACC supporter but that is ridiculous. Joe must not be taking into account regular season champions, which they should do.

    What? Only one Ivy team? Kidding of course but sincerely doubt the rep. will be the Big Red next season. In fact, Cornell is likely 4th place finisher–passed by Princeton, Harvard, Penn
