The Morning Haul: 12/28


Yes, it has been quite some time since I have done the morning haul. It was a daily thing, and then I began to question whether or not that was really necessary when there were days when I couldn’t find three or four stories actually worth passing on, that I considered to be “must read.” So I didn’t for a few days, and then finals hit, and then the holidays hit. But now that is in the past, except for New Year, of course, and I will be beginning the morning haul once again, though it will probably be more like three to five times a week rather than everyday. I’ll begin to put it together each day, and if I can’t find several useful articles, I won’t bother.

Stories Especially Worth Reading:

Mostly basketball links today, for the obvious reason that football season is over. Most of the football links will probably be of the season wrap-up or recruiting variety for the next several months, and basketball will take over. First, a really great look at the 2013 basketball recruiting class from Kevin Cacabelos, who is now writing for the Dawg Pound.

Todd Dybas of the News Tribune with a look at the Connecticut game on the 29th.

According to Condotta, ASJ will decide about basketball soon. Have to think it’s likely he doesn’t play.

And, finally, Pac-12 Power Rankings from Percy Allen. I will be beginning my own Power Rankings right before the beginning of conference play, but for now, I’ll link to his.
