See the details here.
Basically, Syracuse is paying to leave a bit early, as they won't be giving the required 27 month notice. With the additions of Conference USA teams and Temple, Big East was able to lose Syracuse in number. Still, the quality of Syracuse basketball hurts a conference like the Big East.
Edit: Conferences for 2013, with members can be seen here.
This paves the way for Pittsburgh leaving in 2013, as well.
EDIT: It seems that Dawson knows that at least 1 person is planning to commit at the BBQ at the Big House. That person may have told people (including the coaches) privately, but the information won't be public for a bit. I'm sorry for distracting you all on this ridiculously hot Monday. Just remember, seatbelts are like
condoms certain things. You'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
I don't follow recruits on twitter, but BiSB approved Kyle Meinke does, who retweeted David Dawson saying in 2 tweets "Commit watch..." and "Seriously".
Is today Treadwell's random day? Can Ace or an approved recruiting guru confirm? Will this end up in the Top 10 MGoFlopPosts Thread?
Paterno family to conduct their own independent review of the independent review conducted by PSU.
Just when I thought this story couldn't get any uglier, it does. In other news, the Paterno family is also vowing to find the real killer in the OJ Simpson murder trial.
So Zoltan Mesko has decided to take a break from ruling everything in existence, and has decided to vacation in Jamaica for a little bit. With who you might ask?
Oh just these lovely ladies...
From his Twitter:
No this probably isn't very topic worthy, but I figured with all of the PSU stuff we could use a little positive news regarding something Michigan
If you were planning on attending the football game at Purdue this year on 10/6/12, single game tickets went on-sale today through the Purdue ticket office. I tend to purchase my road tickets from the opponents website because in the past I've had better luck with seat location. The only unfortunate thing is that I am then usually stuck right in the middle sitting with the opponents fans instead of Michigan fans unless its at Northwestern where the majority of the stadium seems to be Michigan fans. Just thought I would pass this along for anyone who was interested in attending this game. Below is the link that I used to purchase the tickets. I was able to get tickets on the 50 yard line about 40 rows up. I think in the past I recall that the Michigan allotment was in one of the lower corners of the stadium closer to the goal line. Also I believe there was a section typically in the south endzone.
It's an insider only story, but the first person they list for players that stood out is Zak Irvin.
"He is starting to separate himself from everybody else and may be the best overall player at the adidas Invitational"
I know we are all excited about the five recruits that just stepped foot on campus, but sounds like we will be equally excited about the class of 2013 as well. Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin, and Mark Donnal seem to move up the rankings every time they update them. While we are still unsure whether Austin Hatch will be able to play, his presence alone should provide motivation.
