I feel that our little corner of the Blogosphere is maturing...thanks for your analysis Diamond (and, yes, I did mean the National Review Online).

In the continuing spirit of posting things that raise Diamond's ire, here is Manny Miranda's first regular column from, a site affiliated with the Wall Street Journal. Apparently, Mr. Miranda will be reporting on the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Roberts.

Schedule update

So our schedule for next year is taking shape. Out of conference we'll be playing playing Oregon, Michigan, Illinois, and Navy away. We have Duke and Fairfield at home. We'll also be playing in the Sun Bowl Tounament which features UTEP, Mississippi Valley, and Colgate. As far the conference schedule goes we've got Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rutgers, St. John’s, Cincinnati, South Florida and West Virginia at home. Away we'll play Marquette, DePaul, South Florida, Connecticut, Notre Dame, Villanova, West Virginia and St. John’s. We don't get Seton Hall or Louisville this year. This is definitely the hardest schedule GU has ever played in the regular season. In particular, the number of OOC road games is very high -- a nod to the need to have a much higher RPI so as to be able to get an at-large bid out of a crowded Big East field. I don't think we've ever had so many top flight OOC games in general: Oregon, Michigan, Illinois, and Duke should all make national tv. The one disappointment: no Ricky P.
