Donahue has interest in Arizona PG Jahii Carson. I am glad to see us working the 2011 targets, but we still need a flyer or two for the 2010 class! We are still waiting on the official word from Kevin Noreen.

ACC Meeting news and other links
The the pending TV deal(s) look like they will be the major news coming out of the ACC meetings. My guess is that there will not be an ACC network. I also doubt we will align with one provider like the SEC did with ESPN. Instead, I predict the ACC deal will have renewal arrangements with ABC/ESPN, CBS (for basketball), Raycom and Fox. The money will grow, but not be enough to end expansion talks. Speaking of expansion...it is on everyone's mind (including Gene's) yet no one at the ACC has any definitive solution or statement. It is all wait and see. Since all the players are dancing around the issue, I think the ACC remains vulnerable. Until the conference announces a new partnership plan which includes huge departure penalties, every school is a flight risk. Ugh, I know in the long run BC will be okay, I just don't want to see us in the ACC/Big East leftovers conference.
