"SportscastsU, a division of SportscastsLLC, is happy to announce the debut of our brand new Big East basketball podcast, BigEastCast, hosted by Brendon Desrochers and Dante Carnevale. For the rest of the 2007-2008 season and beyond, BigEastCast will bring you fresh, free commentary from die-hard college basketball fans twice a week."
Podcasts are great for staying up to date on anything. Nothing like downloading a radio show covering Big East basketball twice a week. You can subscribe to it for free on iTunes or give them your e-mail address to be notified when new episodes are available. I've yet to listen to the most recent episode in full, but it certainly seems promising. I'll add a link to the ever-growing list to the right (check out all our Big East friends on the blogroll as well).
In addition, Notre Dame is ranked 7th on BigEastHoops.com's preseason rankings. Seems to think Kurz and Zeller are the frontcourt starters, with no mention of Ryan Ayers:
"7. Notre Dame - The Irish lost quite a bit of offense from last season in losing Falls and Carter. However, they are left with a young, promising team who can do very well this season. Kurz and Zeller are solid in the frontcourt. Harangody is going to be even better this year, and he’ll be in the conversation about All-Big East 1st team. The guards are good as well with Jackson and McAlarney. But the X factor is Zach Hillesland. Hillesland is another Joe Alexander type who can do everything for the Irish. This team will get better and better as the year goes on, and will cause serious problems for the upper echelon teams."
And for those who can't wait for March, the Bracket Project is rolling already. The Irish are a 10 seed.
That's all for now. Say a Hail Mary for the football team. They'll need it tomorrow.
