Here's what's up...
I hate working. We went to Chuck E. Cheese's last night and my daughter absolutely went crazy. Reminded me how much I like being at home as opposed to work. Haha.

Anyway, this is what is so different about college basketball as opposed to college football. In basketball you've either got it one night or you don't. In football, if you play the same team best of seven, the better team will probably win at least 5 of them, y'know? But not so with basketball.

Take for example this past weekend, when Texas, who had a shot at being #1 in Gary Parrish's poll over at CBSSportsline.com, went to Lubbock and were beaten by Texas Tech and their new coach, Pat Knight.

Then, last night, Texas Tech goes to Lawrence, KS, and gets demolished by 58 points. Are you serious? This is the same team that just beat Texas? So that handled the trifecta - Texas beat Kansas, who beat Texas Tech, who beat Texas. Yeah.

The rumor is that Alonzo Lawrence made an 18 on his ACT this past time, which means that, as long as he passes this semester, he'll be fully qualified to play at Alabama next year. Look for this kid to be a starter right off the bat. He's that good.

Another kid that could get significant playing time early is defensive tackle Terrence Cody. Read Andrew Bone's story about him here.

And yes, A-Day last year actually did impress some people, rather than just make us look like lunatics according to ESPN and SI.com.
