Troy Williams visiting this weekend

According to reports, Troy Williams will be visiting campus this weekend.  He is the 4 star power forward from Virginia, who is teammates with 5 star point guard Cat Barber, who we are also recruiting.  Let's hope he has a great time in Ttown.

Also, few things are as meaningless as bracketology in August, but here is Lunardi's early predictions.  We are an 11 seed in the west, opening with Pitt in Philly.  It is interesting to note how many of our opponents are projected to be in the field.  Five SEC teams plus VCU, Charleston Southern, Cincinnati, Mercer, and Purdue.

DJC: Thank you for the recruiting updates.

Have you ever noticed that Lunardi looks like the Minnesota mascot? It continues to amaze me that Joe Lunardi is paid big bucks by ESPN for what he does (props to him by the way). Lunardi doesn't even bother me so much as every talking head on ESPN that speaks in such reverential tones when mentioning Lunardi, as if some cat in his basement who follows college basketball throughout the year couldn't similarly project the field (and before you comment, Finebammer, I don't have a basement).

Now, if he put out a bracket at the beginning of the season and said, "Okay, this is where the teams will end up per seed" and he got 80-90% of it right, then I might value his opinion.

The thing I love most about our comments section is that I routinely get to prove that I'm not a robot. That's very important to the modern man.

Lunardi may as well construct brackets right now for 2014 and 2015 and 2016. And I have zero interest in anyone's preseason bracket for postseason.

Except that I'm not happy with having only 5 teams included as the SEC expands to two additional teams this year.
