More slimey behavior from UCon and Calhoun

First, they reinstate their star point-guard who pled guilty to stealing other students' laptops and now this. Really classless. There should be a Big East investigation.

As Yogi would say, deja vu all over again

What's wrong with this passage?

"Syracuse senior guard Gerry McNamara and Connecticut sophomore forward Rudy Gay were selected preseason co-players of the year.
. . . .

The 6-foot-9 Gay was the league's co-rookie of the year last season with Georgetown's Jeff Green.

Joining Gay and McNamara on the 10-member preseason all-Big East team were: Josh Boone, Connecticut; Taquan Dean, Louisville; Carl Krauser, Pittsburgh; Daryll Hill, St. John's; Randy Foye, Villanova; Allan Ray, Villanova; Curtis Sumpter, Villanova; and Kevin Pittsnogle, West Virginia."

Picking GU as 6th seems about right, though. That should be more than good enough to make the NCAAs.

Another pre-season preview

New Unis

These looks like they'll be closer to the true colors of GU: Union blue and Rebel Gray. I hope the home are the reverse of this. Nike is also marketing an "alternate" away jersey that consists of the dreaded black and teal. Hopefully, they never break those out. What I'd really love is a return to the classic 1984/85 look without the crazy patterns down the side and on the shoulders.

Surely this will raise the ire of Diamond.

How much did Georgetown get for that property again?

ESPN's Pre-Season Top 25 has posted its preseason top 25.

The Hoyas did not make the cut...but they did get votes.

The really scary thing is how many Big East teams are in that list of 25.
