I do intend to post a Ball State wrapup and a Northwestern discussion tomorrow. It hasn't been a good week for blogging. As for the North Alabama game, unlike regular season games, it's unlikely that I will take any systematic look at the box score. Certainly, the three-point accuracy of Jordan Crawford and the overall competence of Jamarcus Ellis were the most encouraging things that we saw in Sunday's game. This team has lots of athletes and lots of scorers. If they can play defense the way Sampson's best Oklahoma teams played defense, this could be a very, very good team. There's some deep, deep stuff for you.
