The Morning Mix

- This take from Pat Forde on conference expansion is just brilliant

- Have you ever heard of the COIA? Me neither. But apparently they aren’t too fond of John Calipari’s scheduling tactics

- Rush The Court provides a pretty cool read on what home court advantage meant to each team in the SEC

- Reeves Nelson is suing Sports Illustrated because they published an article in which he was portrayed as a maniacal, borderline psychotic “jerk”. Newsflash: It’s the truth. Drew Gordon, who was also depicted in the article, is handling this issue much more adult-like

- So it looks like the Big East Tournament will expand to 18 teams. An eighteen team tournament is roughly a fourth of the size of the NCAA Tournament. No thank you

- Mike Huguenin takes a look at the JuCo transfer that will provide instant impacts at their new schools next year

- Myron Metcalf previews the nation’s best shot-blockers. Is Nerlens Noel No.1? Not if Jeff Withey has anything to say about it

- The Mountain-West might be labeled a “mid-major” but it’s full of high-major talent that transferred out of power-6 conference schools

- New Kansas State assistant Chester Frazier wanted to start his new job ASAP. Unfortunately, ASAP meant leaving his German basketball team in the middle of their playoff run

- I certainly didn’t get a free iPad when I was a student athlete. Then again, I didn’t go to THE Ohio State University

- Thomas Robinson is a phenomenal player, but he’s just not going to be the No.1 pick this year

- More on the possible formation of the SEC Network

- Danny Manning and Tulsa picked up a key transfer in the form of Northeastern forward Kauri Black

- A solid list of the ten best sleeper recruits in the last decade of Pac-12 hoops

- Cincinnati will start a home-and-home series with New Mexico. I like this. Not many are going to want to venture into The Pit when the Lobos are in the top-25, which they will be next year

- Idaho wanted to join the Sun Belt Conference, but unfortunately the Sun Belt just didn’t feel the same way. But they did have feelings for UT-Arlington, which will officially join the conference today

- New Jersey high school freshman Karl Towns will be a member of the Dominican National basketball team. No, not the U-19 or U-17 team, the actual national team. The D.R. has yet to qualify for the 2012 Olympics, but this is still kinda wild
