    I say no way. Pitino has burnt his bridges in Kentucky. Heís now at a mid major trying to rehab his image. If Kentucky wins they were supposed to win. If they lose, the media and seeding fallout will be on par with Evansville and probably worse because itís Pitino.

    Hard pass. Move on.

    Bill Self wants everyone to know that he would be ok if the NCAA used the polls to crown a national champion this season.

    What would you think if West Virginia was #1 in the final poll?

    James Madison hires Georgia Southern coach and former UNC Wilmington player, Mark Byington. I think I like it but I’ve been fooled before.

    ESPN's Way too early Top 25 is problematic for any WVU fan....#24? Per their writeup, they are basing this on only senior attrition, and WVU was ranked higher than #24 most of this season and only loses one starter/contributor who averaged 9/4/2 per game (Haley). Everyone else returns including the best front court in the country in Derek Culver and Oscar Tshiebwe. On top of that we have break out freshman Miles McBride returning with scoring threats such as Emmitt Matthews, Taz Sherman, Sean McNeil and Jordan McCabe (All were inconsistent but showed flashes that they can fill up the box score, and most first year transfer players have far better second seasons in Huggins program).Finally, do all the dirty work wonder Gabe Osabuohien is back! The lineup will be adding 4 Star ESPN 100 Red Shirt Freshman SF Jalen Bridges and 4 Star ESPN 100 true Freshman PF Isaiah Cottrell to the lineup....along with a very good JC PG Kedrian Johnson and Huggins special do everything athlete in true Freshman SF Taj Thweatt out of New Jersey. This is a team that could be the most versatile and talented roster Huggins has ever coached, at least @ WVU. This is the same group of Freshman and Sophomores that just beat #4 Baylor a couple weeks ago that will be a year older/improved and the talent entering is far greater than the talent exiting.

    I get the programs with the Top 5 or 10 classes will often start the season taking up most of the Top 10, but it truly is a slight to not have this WVU team in the Top 15. I am not concerned over the ranking if it resembles the actual polls because we will have ample opportunity to prove ourselves early in the season with the Battle 4 Atlantis's impressive field of teams (Duke (#6), Ohio State (#13), Creighton (#2), Wichita State, Utah, Texas A&M and Memphis), then Purdue in the Hall of Fame Invitational, a Big East team in the Big East/Big12 Battle, and a supposedly improved Pitt team; still I feel the slight is fairly heavy. I was right 2 years ago when I projected the early polls had WVU significantly over ranked....and I was right this year when WVU was significantly underranked in the preseason (KenPom in the 60's)....this will be 3 years in a row of being correct about this team being valued incorrectly!

    this guy just can't help himself.....

    Dan Dakich under investigation for comments on Scottsburg basketball coach firing

    Dan Dakich went on a 5-minute rant on his radio show Wednesday, lambasting the firing of Scottsburg High's basketball coach, calling a player a "methhead," urging listeners to go "take a dump" in Scottsburg and threatening, "I may just drive down there and beat the hell out of every school board member."

    The tirade, including Dakich saying Scottsburg is a town full of "meth and AIDS and needles” set off a string of emails and calls from residents to WFNI The Fan, where his noon to 3 p.m. "The Dan Dakich Show" airs.

    I read that article earlier, and I have no issue jumping on Izzo, but I can see that taking place without any intended malice. They find out their player is accused of something, and just reaching out to a potential witness that they know personally to see if he has any information. Maybe it was not the correct procedure, but the headline sounds worse than the story in my opinion.
