please accept my apology

-- Billy Gillispie hasn't forgotten his roots or his old friends, or so says the Houston Chronicle's John Lopez. A few days ago, I suggested the "Wizard of Wellborn" is among college basketball's hottest young coaches and may soon fly the coop. A reader commented that Billy has strong ties in Texas -- relationships he might prefer not to leave behind, even for a prime coaching gig at Arizona or Indiana. More evidence to back up the reader's position.

-- I owe an apology to Tom Penders for calling him a "mediocre" coach. There is nothing mediocre about his Houston club's 8-0 home record and upset of Louisville.

-- Wake Forest yesterday defeated North Carolina. You saw the game. You formed an opinion. You need not learn mine.

-- Blogger Kyle has asked for input -- you have the power -- on where he should travel for his "Red State Basketball Goodwill Tour." Go! Vote!

-- Sean Sutton will someday coach the Oklahoma State Cowboys on an arena floor soon to be renamed in honor of his father. You know what they say about coaches who have big shoes to fill...
