Way back when, in the preseason NIT, the ESPN analysts were laughing about the projections that had Drexel as the 6th or 7th Colonial team. Drexel did finish as projected. And guess what, the Colonial is indeed that good! George Mason is in the Final Four! Old Dominion is in the NIT Final Four and just ousted Hofstra in the NIT's Miserable 8 (ooops! Elite 8). UNC-Greensboro lost in OT in the first round of the NCAAs to GW. The Missouri Valley got most of the mid-major hype during the season but the Colonial has scoreboard!
Every six years Florida makes it to the Final Four. Lon Kruger in 1994, Billy Donovan in 2000, Billy Donovan in 2006.
Coaching Carousel: Indiana is open. They allegedly went after Calipari, not just Mark Few. Perhaps after the way they treated Bob Knight they are finding it hard to find a high profile replacement? Pecora at Seton Hall? How about Bobby Gonzalez? How about Barry Rohsen of Pitt?
