College, college, college

ESPN has unveiled its 2010-2011 NCAA basketball schedule. Looks better every year.

Clair Watkins is having a tough time getting her college career started. The Vanderbilt freshman, who had her scholarship offer rescinded by Duke last year, has sustained a season-ending knee injury. Hang in there, kid, and never give up.

No surprises here: the media has picked Tennessee to win the SEC title this year, and Fresno State to win the WAC.

Meet the Oregon Ducks this week. This whole open college practice thing is becoming a trend, and I like it.

A month after UNCW guard Julia Finlay suffered harsh punishment at the hands of an assistant coach in practice, she has left the team. She will stay at the University to finish her degree, however.

Michigan news: the team is still smarting over missing the NCAA tournament last year. But they’ve lost their star point guard, so getting in this year might be an uphill battle.

Different story in Syracuse: despite losing their top player, new Coach Quentin Hillsman is optimistic about this season, saying the Big Orange has reloaded. They had their media day yesterday. (Does the attitude of the coach make a difference to a team? You better believe it)

Bonus 1: A little California basketball news…..the CIF Southern Section championships will be in Anaheim next year. I don’t like that – too far away.

Bonus 2: Seattle Storm championship season exit interview.

That’s some good links! I’m all excited now.

  1. "… assistant coach Johnetta Hayes, who oversaw the punishment, has not been seen publicly with the team since."

    I'm reminded of Kremlinology: the "science" of determining who was in (and who was out) in the USSR by studying photos of parade reviewing stands. Is X there? Is Y next to Stalin? Has Z been seen publicly?
