the cabal of 100

-- Bob Lutz of the Wichita (KS) Eagle pens the lead of the day.

It might not happen this month. Or next. But the vibes around the Missouri basketball program are strong that coach Quin Snyder is on his way out.

-- With Mark Stewart of the Milwaukee (WI) Journal-Sentinel coming in a close second.

If Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan thought the criticism of Brian Butch last week was unnecessary, he would be beside himself if he were at Michigan State.

-- If the Boston Globe is willing to accept ESPN's description of St. Joseph's employee Joe Lunardi (yesterday evening's new mock bracket is available here) as the network's "resident bracketologist," will they run with my suggestion that Ken Pomeroy is the blogosphere's "resident statistician?" Or that college basketball bloggers are, collectively, the "cabal of 100?"

-- ESPN announced "Bracket Buster" pairings yesterday (bearing little similarity to the games I suggested the network schedule last week). I'll still watch (at least) Vermont at Nevada, UTEP at Pacific, Southern Illinois at Kent State and Western Michigan at Northern Iowa. Oh, and I nearly forgot, the Wichita State game.
