Today is not a day for football recruiting info and urban matters.
Nor is it a day for new guys with 8 posts to criticize what Bucknuts decides to put out. Jussayin'...
I agree that on a big day for bball we should try and focus on it more however we're the ultimate football school so I wouldn't hold your breath.
Every day is a day for recruiting info and urban matters.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
We used to have Jeff Rapp who did mostly hoops, but times got tight and they lost him. I would love to see more basketball stories, but like the other poster wrote, i'm notholding my breathe.
Also keep in mind there is a lot more to write about with football. You are covering and following hundreds of recruits for an 85 man roster. The basketball team is only 13 deep. We probably have about 50 guys on our board max. Secondly, the hoops staff is notoriously a tough nut to crack. It is very difficult to get good inside info on the team and recruiting. I know this firsthand.
All that being said, it probably would be appropriate to at least have the lead story remain the game tonight.

Steve and Biddle write basketball articles and very few posters engage in conversation.
No feedback which may be interpreted as little interest by board members.
Therefore the opportunity cost decision is to continue to put resources towards football.
Like you I enjoy hoop articles and I satisfy myself by supplementing this site by searching the web.
Big game tonight. Bucks are playing by far the easiest path to final four in comparison to our Big 10 brothers.
I put most everything I have on this game right here, including prediction:

One more thing:
All eyes will be on the Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight as No. 2 seed Ohio State meets No. 6 seed Arizona in an NCAA West Region semifinal game (7:47 p.m., TBS).
You the Man Steve!!!

He can't criticize? He's paying big money for this site. He's entitled to criticize what he wants.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
No, he was right ... this is a big day for OSU basketball. We need all of it and as much of it as we can get out there on a day like this.
That is what I want to hear! This is the week for basketball. Limit the football recruiting to truly significant news like the Dylan Thompson commit. I'll probably get jumped on for writing this, but at least for this and last week, it seems almost in bad taste to focus any attention to the whims and measurables of high school sophmore and junior football players with so much of importance happening in the hoops world. After the Bucks win it all, then return to feeding our infatuation with football recruiting.
