    Weird. Hope we don't lose my keen insights and nuggets of wisdom (tongue firmly in cheek here).

    Haven't listened to it yet, but here's a local sports-talk radio interview with new BU assistants Felton Spencer and Doug Davenport (around the 40:45 mark):

    Years of loving craft down the drain. I guess it was the ephemeral nature of the writings that made them poignant and passionate.

    The team may still win 25 games, but, unless they can get their "mojo" back, we can forget about it being a "special season."

    The defensive lapses, turnovers, three-point shooting woes, lacking confidence, and, yes, injuries are brutal.

    Likewise -- I thought this would be a rebuilding season, at least by BU standards. Shows what I know.

    Great season, and I'm already looking forward to the next one. Thanks to the other teams' fans who posted those nice, congratulatory messages.

    I am a little surprised that I didn't read that Scotty was being considered for any of the many coaching vacancies, some of them in the region, that have come open. I guess at 60, they are just not interested. Their loss is our gain, but I think these AD's are stupid. If he were succesful, they could get 10 years out of him, which is more than they would get out of young up and coming coach who was equally successful and would be out the door as soon as a bigger job got offered. The hire of a basketball coach at a D1 school is largely an exercise in public relations. If you announced hiring a 60 year old D2 coach, the media and fan base would have a stroke, it would make no difference that anybody who really knows something about basketball would recognize that he is a great basketball coach.

    It has turned out that hiring a slightly older coach was the best move Bellarmine could make. In retrospect, you have to wonder why Scotty wasn't given a head coaching job well before Bellarmine hired him. It is kind of hard to imagine him as an assistant coach, it really doesn't fit his personality or talents.

    Hush now, don't be talking him up. Some place like Dayton might wise up and offer him the job. Can't have that! The thing is he is not just a great basketball coach but a great promoter as well. He takes his job as being one of, if not the spokesperson, for the Bellarmine way very seriously and is out there spreading the word. Ten years of having him to do that for a mid major is heckuva lot more valuable than 2 or 4 years from some young guy that doesn't know how to promote anything other than getting some high school kid to play basketball for him.

    At least all my predictions will come true now!(at least as far as anyone of you can disprove what I predicted!)

    Interesting that there is only one GLVC player named and only two in the region. Coincidentally, those two players, Rusty, and CJ Turnage for SVSU, play each other in the first game of the season.

    I think the region will be wide open this year, but if you had to pick a favorite, it may be SVSU.

    BTW, I would probably make Lincoln Memorial the favorite to win the Championship.

    Find it odd that they were just Honorable Mention. Troutman was on the Coaches All American squad which only lists the top 16 at the end of last year. He was one of the six on that team that weren't seniors. By that logic you would think he would at least make the 2nd team preseason on the Sporting News. This kind of stuff is like the polls though, pretty meaningless. The honor is to be on it at the end of the year.

    I agree I think SVSU is the favorite. I don't see anyone in the GLVC stepping up this year. I may have been drinking the purple kool-aid but I think KWC has to be considered in the top 3 at least if not the favorite.

    Btw, it is only about a six and half hour drive to that first game. Road trip anyone?
