Respect for Rice and other links
Some bloggers consider Rice one of the top guards in the country.
I usually don't link to articles in the Heights, but thought this one on Montel Harris had two good nuggets: 1. Jags weighing and measuring him in the office 2. rooming with Herzy during the summer. The Jags story shows the coach's sense of humor and willingness to recruit a kid that others viewed as an afterthought. The Herzy things shows how you reinforce the current culture around the team by having the freshmen room with the team leaders.
The final note from this article mentions two BC targets who UNC will be hosting this weekend. A nice win would certainly send a message. (Thanks to Fran for the link.)
Here is a preview of the game.
This Bobcat blogger really likes Jared Dudley. (Thanks to Matt for the link.)
Remember Kenny Plue? He was the BC commit who headed to prep school after the coaching change. He's now starting at Purdue. Good for him but I don't think BC missed out on anything. Purdue's style of oline is almost the opposite of ours.
