It's a really good book, like a really good book. The number of subjects that David James Duncan can write intelligently about is mind-blowing.
Just sayin', you should probably read it.
According to Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog fame, Louisville's signing of Terrence Jennings on Saturday may have considerably bolstered their chances to land Tyreke Evans.
"That's a good pickup by them dudes," Reggie Evans, Tyreke's older brother, said of the Jennings to Louisville commitment. "Man, I like that kid Terrence. 'Reke likes him, too. Mount Zion played American Christian twice last year (when Jennings was at Mount Zion) and I was like, 'Damn, is that Amare Stoudemire's little brother?"
"It's a good added pickup (for Louisville). That's just what we want to see. We want to see who's coming and who's going."
Reggie said 'Reke was similarly impressed.
"He said, 'They got him and Samardo (Samuels of St. Benedict's). That's a good look for them.'"
The Louisville football team garnered several mentions when midseason awards were handed out by columnists across the country last week. The Cards were named the biggest disappointment of the midseason by Michael Bradley, biggest bust of the midseason by Pat Forde, and Steve Kragthorpe got a nod in the "Worst Job by a New Coach" category courtesy of Joey Johnston.
Some good notes on Randy Edsall and Friday's game courtesy of Ramblings From the Runway, a very good Connecticut blog.
Scout.com unveiled its Big East Midseason Awards today, and named Brian Brohm the conference's Offensive Player of the Midseason.

The Cards again got the nod for "Biggest Disappointment," and Krags got s shout-out for "coach who needs to have a big second half."
If you didn't catch it last week, there was a great feature on Amobi Okoye by Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated.
Louisville isn't the only Big East team dealing with a preseason injury to a key low-post player. Underrated Notre Dame sophomore center Luke Harangody will reportedly be out 3-6 weeks because of a torn ligament in his right thumb.
Lastly and most bestly, I'm really not one to brag about accomplishments on here, but when you get some love from a Clay Aiken fan site I think you're allowed to do a little chest-thumping.
