A quick note on Hartford and other links

We killed Hartford last night. The big takeaway was the play of Tyler Roche. He's been on the bench in every important game this season, so it is nice to see him play well. I hope he gets some minutes down the stretch, as we need his offense and haven't had a true spot shooter under Skinner in years.

As I've said all year, at the minimum we need to split our series with Virginia Tech. With the way the Hokies played last night, I have a little more hope.

Remember that Whipple guy? Well the Steelers made his termination official yesterday.

Peter Gammons recently spoke at the Heights. Pretty cool. I can't think of anyone as interesting who came to campus during my four years.

What did TOB do for The Sporting News' Tom Dienhart? Pull him from a burning car? Give him a kidney? There's gotta be some explanation for his continued praise of the stoic one. In his latest piece he calls TOB the best offseason hire. Guess who he calls the worst? The message boards have already picked this thing apart, but even if you exclude my Jags bias, how can you put TOB ahead of Saban and Davis?

Finally the blogpoll crew put together some awards. I won best ACC blog. Thanks to all those who voted.

You better be going to one of the BC-GT series games in baseball this year. We beat them 2 out of 3 last year.

Congrats on the award Bill. This site is quite well done, and is a highlight of my day.

I saw that Dienart column and laughed outloud. I remember you pointing out that he was a mouthpiece for TOB re: raises, etc. But putting him above Nick Saban...hmmm. Can't see him getting blown out by the 'Cuse with 14 mil on the line.
