I'll get it started... Oh my gosh, how far we have fallen. Only respected enough to be a middle of the pack team in one of the worst conferences in DI. We use to be in cusa competing against cincy and Louisville. Those were the days. If only we had football back then. Fire Judy.

Potts was 22 on August 8. Has looked like an old man since his freshman year, though.

To be perfectly fair there wasn't enough room for that and Tar Hole writer Andrew Carter's article entitled "Pinson goes to the mall and FaceTimes with Pookie" Bet that was a humdinger!

Another day, more nothing from the Observer. Did run pieces about Davidson's Red vs Black scrimmage and UNC-Cheat commit Rechon Black and his Cox Mill HS teammate Wendell Moore in today's 12 page printed edition. Even had enough space to report on FCS football teams Bryant, Duquesne and San Diego! Way to go Big O!  ::)

A shorthanded WKU wins their exhibition today vs Samford 78-64.

And WV prep hoops legend Lewis D'Antoni, father of Marshall HC Dan D'Antoni and Houston Rockets HC Mike D'Antoni, passes away at 103.

Day three and nada from the Big O! And not holding my breath that there will be anything about tonight's Frisco coaches gathering in tomorrow's Observer either since anything happening west of the Catawba will be too late for the next day's printed edition!
