TBB on

Fans can get an extra dose of my musings on this season. I will be writing a weekly college hoops column beginning sometime in November. It will be more "straight" writing than what I write here, but I am looking forward to the experience. The column will consist of a short feature story and then a spin around the southern conferences including the ACC, Atlantic Sun, Big XII, Big South, CUSA, MEAC, Mid-Continent, Ohio Valley, SEC, Southern, SWAC, and Sun Belt. That is a load of conferences to cover, but the emphasis will vary from week to week to keep things fresh.

In the meantime, it is homecoming week here at WKU, so I will be heavily involved in campus activities over the course of the next few days. First up, the annual Chili/Cheese Luncheon and Pep Rally at noon today in downtown Bowling Green. Tomorrow night, the men's and women's basketball teams will officially kick off their practice season with Hilltopper Hysteria at 8:30 pm. I will have a full report on Monday.

Here is a must read for fans of non-BCS-type basketball teams. CBS has inked the Missouri Valley Conference championship game in a plum time slot. Thanks to Yoni Cohen for linking this on YOCO.
