I'll preview the first real game of the season tomorrow, so hopefully this will be the last filler post for a while. It will be great to have some real ND basketball underway.

The Big East received 8 bids in Joe Lunardi's first Bracketology of the year, with the Irish sliding in as an 11 seed from the South Region. Obviously anywhere in the bracket would be an improvement over last year, but I hope the boys can play themselves into a much better seed by Selection Sunday. Villanova picked up the highest seed of the conference, as the top second-seeded team. West Virginia is a three-seed.

Ok, let's get rolling with an easy win on Saturday. Show us some good, balanced scoring and more tenacity on defense guys.

Looks like a great haul to me. And it's telling that Mike seemingly anointed Eric as his point for next season.

random question - anyone know a place to download the ND Basketball Schedule into Outlook?

All three are very solid additions to the program. Atkins started out as a mediocre point guard but is now rated higher by Rivals than Ray McCallum, a guy who has received offers from Arizona and Kansas among others. Grant might be the best of the bunch. This is of the more talented classes Notre Dame has landed under Coach Brey.

As for Outlook, no idea.
