OK, I Guess You Can Live in Arkansas


(I don't see John cutting down too many nets in the Sun Belt Conference)

I don't care about the non-Razorback part of the state known as Arkansas State territory up in the northeast corner, but I was still slightly put-off that they hired John Brady as their new basketball coach. It was probably an easy move and decision for ASU, but I never liked him or his teams at LSU. Now, he's in Arkansas. I'm not sure what I think about that. I guess I really don't care, because I don't care about ASU sports and ASU and the U of A are not really rivals. Brady brings his big name and will bring some instant cred to a program in need.

It's just one of those things that feels uncomfortable... like an ex-girlfriend that you secretly hate living next door, or like a boss who fired you that lives just down the street from you... Whatever the case, I will probably be checking in on ASU a little bit more now come roundball season this winter just to see.

Here's an interesting story from ESPN.com about the Indians/Red Wolves new head coach. (Don't even get me started on the whole - we can't have any more mascots that are Indians or Seminoles or Redmen or whatever... whole different rant for a different time)
