Why Jarvis has a studio job is a curiousity. The guy ran the St. John's program into the ground, which as someone who hates St. John's I appreciate, and paid his bad players (hell, I can understand paying the good players, but to pay the crap players is just idiotic). True, at least Jarvis appears to be semi-conscious on the set, which is a vast improvement over the days Majerus is on, but he labeled Providence fans degenerate drunks 4 years ago when he realized that he was our bitch. On the Illinois win over Wake: Well, that Providence loss in the preseason NIT semis to Wake doesn't appear to be as much of a moral victory. Of course, the home loss to Winthrop after blowing a 16 point second half lead wasn't good either. Last time I go to a game this season sober. Might as well make Illinois #1, they were in the top 5 and knocked off 1, so they might as well have the spot for a week or two in December.

I have to start my tradition a day early because I'll be on the road tomorrow preparing to run my first marathon. Tomorrow marks the beginning of NCAA basketball and the spectacle of "Midnight" Madness celebrations around the nation.
