As the weather cools down, the basketball pre-season is just heating up.

  • A big recruiting weekend for Tubby Smith, and at the very least, the football team hasn’t embarrassed themselves…yet (please note this was posted at approximately 5 pm CDT, and I take no responsibility for what the football teams does in the fourth quarter.)
  • Tubby’s Tip-off will be at 10 pm on October 15, 2010. The sight of Rodney Williams with nothing between him and the basket but a chair, a ladder, and elephant is well worth the price of admission, which is of course free! The marketing budget only allows for facebook messages this year.
  • Early looks at the Sienna Saints and Virginia, two of the “tougher” non-conference home opponents.
  • Andy Katz breaks down the NCAA transfer red-shirt waiver process. Paul Carter tried and succeeded, Royce White tried and apparently failed, and Trevor Mbakwe thought about it. No, there isn’t much method to the NCAA’s madness.
