Get your cowering faces on, Big East: Jim Calhoun is back

When Jim Calhoun won his third national championship quite a few people (including myself) thought the odds were good that he'd hang it up and ride off into the sunset. But as the months ticked by with no announcement it started to seem more and more like the pride of Braintree, Massachusetts would be coming back after all. Well, now it's official, with UConn President Susan Herbst confirming that Jim Calhoun will coach the Huskies this year, his 26th with the porgram:

"He told me today he is staying. Obviously we're thrilled about it."

It's really not a surprise, especially with Andre Drummond and DeAndre Daniels in the fold, but it is nice to have confirmation.
