Kent State has looked pretty good thus far. I still don't have much faith in their coach though.

Kent State is 8-1. Akron is 1-2. Why have you only played 3 games?

Thank GOD for Richaun Holmes. Will be absolutely shocked if he's not first team all-mac, because he's a legitimate contender for POY and DPOY despite being on a terrible BGSU squad. Literally carried us the last two weeks, and is probably the only reason I go to games.

Has anyone watched Toledo this year? They are an impressive 12-0...wondered if that's a weak schedule or if they are legit. I haven't had a chance to watch them yet.

They play KU tomorrow, so I'll get a chance to see them. I'll let you know.

Gotta be honest... didn't really pay too much attention in the first half, and I can't even get the second half here.

Tough to evaluate Toledo against this team though because they were just getting pounded inside by Embiid and Ellis. Won't face anything like that in the MAC.

It appears like Toledo played Kansas pretty well. For the first time in a long time, I think there's a legitimate MAC championship contender in the West.

I haven't been able to get on much lately but what a game between OU and Akron Sunday night. I was really impressed with Ndour - OU has a high-impact player in him. Diggs stepped up big for the Zips, as did the shooters (McAdams/Kretzer). I have a feeling it might be Akron-OU for a third straight year on Saturday in Cleveland.

Ohio hired Saul Phillips, the North Dakota State head coach.

The team that beat Oklahoma in the Tourney.

It's been an interesting offseason for OU. New coach, losing a top recruit, rumors of Ndour leaving...we'll see if Phillips can pull it all together.
