Guru Musings: More Odds And Ends
Most people following the Guru follow the other sites so he just bypassed the Minnesota win over San Antonio and worked on his advance for the Eastern Conference final which should be up over at fullcourt.com. the Full Court Press site.
Anyhow, since it looks the conference musical chairs at the collegiate level won't be that extensive other than Missouri didn't ask the permission of its most famous alum, ESPN.com's Mechelle Voepel, to move to the SEC, the Guru was tongue-in-cheek playing around with some configurations if women's basketball programs had any say on what they would do, which they don't, as we know the reality.
Anyhow, no truth to the rumor Texas balked at the ACC because the Longhorns wanted to play Duke only at home in Austin for obvious reasons.
If these schools got together -- West Virginia, Marshall, Duquesne, Pittsburgh, Penn State, Robert Morris, St. Francis-Pa., and Mount St. Mary's they could call themselves the Mountain East Conference. -- Sorry Allegheny is already named somewhere else.
If these schools all merged in the state of Connecticut into one system with the Huskies -- Central Connecticut, Fairfield, Quinnipiac, Hartford, Sacred Heart, Yale and UConn, they could be called the UConn Conference with each satellite site re-named UConn at Fairfield, UConn at Sacred Heart, etc. and then Geno could be the coach-commissioner.
In honor of the the legendary Tennessee coach, the SEC could be renamed the Summitt Conference and the current Summit Conference renamed to something else.
That's it for now. Will be back to set up Thursday's game here before the next sunrise.
