It’s time to introduce something new here to The Good Ol Blog. We’ll call it “The Afternoon Break” – if someone has a better suggestion, we’re all ears! – with a goal of providing a regularly occurring post on weekdays. We thought about doing this sort of feature some time back, but the goal with TAB is to provide you with a quick spin around TheSabre.com’s message boards for the interesting conversations and links out there in the last 24 hours. That way Sabre fans will have a quick reference guide to what we think are some of the more interesting topics and conversations on the site. We expect the feature to evolve as it ages too so suggestions are welcome.
Why “The Afternoon Break” moniker, then? Well, the thought is we’ll put this out mid-afternoon on the weekdays as a quick and easy excuse to take a short 10-minute break from work. Um, if your boss is reading this or if you’re the boss, we’re only joking. No one should take an unapproved break from work just to read The Sabre. Seriously. No really.
With that in mind, today’s break links …
- Basketball seems to be the hottest topic out there right now. Transfers and recruiting have people speculating and dreaming up scenarios all over the place. Poster secondyearWAHOO asks “Do you think some coaches are trying to take too many players on purpose now?” Maupin233′s question: “Do HS athletes just not care about the environment they are committing to?”
- smchoo76 is curious and excited about the potential of Darion Atkins. Chime in here.
- Also, FSU picked up a commit.
- Plus, Virginia may be in the preseason NIT field. Hat tip to NCHOO for the link in this thread.
- Oh yeah, also on the basketball front, Virginia Tech fired Seth Greenberg. TSL’s Will Stewart has the perfect take on the whole thing. Read it here.
- Over in the lacrosse world, Steele Stanwick repeated as the ACC Player of the Year. Talk about it.
- On The Corner, topics trend all over the place of course but pop culture is often in the middle of it all. With that in mind, HOOKnew75 asks “Who is the most culturally significant person still alive today?” What do you think? Weigh in on that thread. Also, Mad Men fans may like this thread (as always, don’t read if you don’t want spoilers!).
