One of many Jim Calhoun remembrances you should read

There are a lot of great pieces on Jim Calhoun out there today, but for people who either lived or grew up in Connecticut over the past twenty years will find a lot to like here. One thing in particular worth noting is this line, which I think explains a lot of the dichotomy between local and national reactions to Calhoun: "Calhoun won two more titles, never taking his foot off the gas. He had gotten to the top by fighting, and he'd stay at the top by fighting. But a national title can change a coach from an underdog to a bully even when the coach himself doesn't change."

BCS Eliminator: UConn is still in the national title hunt

The mothership has launched a nifty new feature where they track who is still alive in the National Title hunt and the good news for UConn fans is that after Week 1 it is still conceivable UConn could be the national champion come January. Not alive? That would be be Pitt. Syracuse, UMass, N.C. State and UMass all check in as barely alive.
