big news in today's paper about the status of Gib's proposed contract. Hopefully we will all learn more about it tonight when Gib is our in studio guest on the first Hoopstalk radio show of the new season. That's tonight at 6 pm on ESPN 1420. We will also discuss the scheduling difficulties faced by the program this year, as well as reviewing all of the recruiting history since last April. There has been much speculation in the press and in the blogs about the failure of 4 recruits to get into school and why and how that occurred, and I am sure Gib will talk about his recruiting philosophy tonight.
I also expect news on a possible replacement for the vacant assistant position and we will look at the rest of the WAC. Early preseason magazines have UH in the top half of the league.
Jackson and I are already setting up interviews with Mainland coaches for upcoming shows. I must say it looks like the Tarheels are the number 1 team going into the season. In the WAC, look for Nevada to picked preseason number 1 with Utah State and New Mexico State right behind.
