Battle for Conference Hoop Supremacy

Battle for Conference Hoop Supremacy

Hour to kill before Michigan dismantles Louisville.  As a DC native, we hear a LOT locally about the ACC's basketball supremacy.  Thought I would look at some of the well-represented conferences in the tournament.  There are 4 that have won 6 games to date (B1G 7-3, ACC 6-6, PAC 6-0, Big 12 6-3).

What is perhaps most notable is the way the teams from each conference have been shown the door.  While the 3 B1G losses have been relatively close (NW to the wire against #1 Gonzaga, and MD and MN losing by 11 and 9 respectively), the clunkers put up by highly-seeded ACC teams were absolutely atrocious (Miami losing by 20 to MSU, 5 seed UVA losing by 26 to FLA, 3 seed FSU losing by 25 to 11 seed Xavier).

Michigan's game against 2 seed Louisville looms large in either restoring a little ACC luster, or underscoring the hideous nature of Hollis/seeding crews efforts.  Let's Go BLUE!!!!!

Isn't this stuff supposed to happen to Purdue?

If there ever was any question whether UCLA would be competitive for the 2011 football season, it has been answered decisively today:

OG Stan Hasiak dismissed, academically ineligible.

Senior Sean Sheller began spring ahead of Hasiak but moved to left tackle when junior Jeff Baca broke his left ankle. Sheller, who subsequently went down with a broken hand, is expected to begin fall camp at left tackle and remain there until Baca returns, perhaps in October. The only other guards listed on the end-of-spring depth chart are redshirt freshman Wade Yandall and walk-ons Sam Saultz and Jay Barlow.

Only one of UCLA’s four incoming freshman is projected to play guard — Ben Wysocki (6-4, 265) of Los Alamitos High. Another option might be JC transfer Albert Cid (6-4,320), who verbally committed to the Bruins in May after playing for Citrus Community College in 2010.

Neuheisel is 4-8, 7-6 and 4-8. And still nothing set at quarterback.
