Number 1

We moved up to the number one spot in the RPI as of yesterday. If we win today over Duke something tells me we stay there. That is a big IF as we all know. We have to keep our composure and pound it inside to get to the free throw line. Excited for the opportunity and possibilities. If we take the 'L' we are still shaping up to be better this season than I anticipated. In all honesty I would be happy with a split between Duke and Butler. Butler is top 10 in the RPI as well.

This is a great day to watch college basketball. Here is my schedule for the day:

Noon: Miami (OH) -v- West Virginia (ESPNU)
2:00: Xavier #7 -v- Duke #6 (CBS)
4:00: UCONN #2 -v- Gonzaga #8 (CBS)
6:30: Cincinnati -v- Eastern Kentucky (FSN)

I mean who really wants to watch EagleBank Bowl, New Mexico Bowl, St. Petersburg Bowl, or the always riveting Las Vegas Bowl? Does anybody make any money off this early season bowl games besides ESPN and their family of networks? Who knows, who cares. As we close out 2008 the basketball action is heating up.
