Just an advance word to those who inexplicably end up here looking for ways to vent about Tubby Smith : surely there are better places to do so.

Fresh off handing UConn its first loss of the year, the duo of Dominic James and Steve Novak have Marquette leading Cincinnati by 11 in the 2nd half. Note to the Human Whoopie Cushion — good things happen to teams that ditch the insensitive nicknames.

(Update : Cincy 70, Marquette 66. The shot-blocking machine that is Eric Hicks takes over…and this is what happens when you kowtow to pressure groups.)
