On Wednesday I'll be heading to the Big East Media Day (compliments of Volvo) which officially kicks off the college basketball season for the toughest conference in the land. While there's much to discuss, there are three main points of interest for me:
- Anything and everything Buzz Williams has to say
- Thoughts on the upcoming season for head coaches new to the BE scene, those being Mike Rice at Rutgers, Kevin Willard at Seton Hall, Oliver Prunell at DePaul, and Steve Lavin at St. John's
- Jim Calhoun's latest rant when the topic of recruiting violations is brought up
I'll be sending out Facebook updates and Tweets from the event, and will have a full recap here shortly after it's over. If this media day is like the recent ones, MU will be picked to finish 9th or 10th in the conference. They were picked to finish 12th last year, and look how that prediction turned out...
