…November is next. #stdga
Life keeps flying, and here’s some CAA doings:
I’m very happy to be part of the College ChalkTalk crew this year. My first file: Towson’s decision to drop two sports and revive men’s tennis. It may mean far more than a surface consideration.
As for CCT…Chris DiSano hit on a brilliant idea—have coaches contribute diaries during the season—and he’s supplemented that with full-reaching coverage of college basketball. I highly recommend a bookmark.
Brian Mull, by his words, angered half the fans in the CAA by releasing his preseason predictions. He also dangled a sizzling porterhouse and cold Stella in front of our face by declaring the preseason edition of Colonial X is nearing completion.
Mull inspired John Templon at Big Apple Buckets to weigh in with his preseason picks. My final preseason picks are slated for a Monday release.
And the un-nice news: Mo Cassara has suspended Taran Buie and Jamal Coombs-McDaniel from two preseason events and the first two regular season games for violation of team rules.
Templon, whose blog is very underrated and I suggest you keep checking back, also provides an update on potential good Hofstra news.
Blaine Taylor is on twitter. (@BlaineTaylorODU) I’m not sure anything else really needs to be said. If you haven’t yet ventured to twitter, Taylor’s presence is worth your exploration.
Here’s a quick EuroJourney catch-up on one of my favorite #CAAHoops gunners, Drexel’s Phil Goss. I can still see Goss rolling past two high screens, setting his feet, and swishing a quick-release three.
I don’t know Joe Varela from Adam Ant, but he’s done an outstanding job setting up the season. Here he is with a nonconference primer.
