Let's Play Two

Let's Play Two

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- Ernie "Mr. Cub" Banks was famous for enthusiastically exclaiming "Let's play two." Ernie was probably motivated to say that after the lovable loser Cubs had fallen 10-1 in the first game. The Dayton Flyers will "play two" within the space of a mere 40 hours, as they face St. Joe's at home Thursday at 6:00PM on ESPNU and then travel to Da Burgh to face the Dukes in a 2:00PM tilt which can be seen on NBC Sports Network. UD was supposedly offered their choice of a 9:30PM tipoff vs. the Hawk that never stops flapping or the early game at 6:00PM. Archie chose wisely.

It remains to be seen whether Kendall Pollard will suit up for one, both or neither of these contests. The thoughts of the Flyers playing two games in 40 hours with 5 recruited scholarship players and one converted walkon is less than optimal, to say the least. Here's to speedy recoveries!

Elsewhere in the land of hoops:

-- The governing bodies overseeing college hoops have come up with some bad ideas over the years, but making freshman athletes once again ineligible has to rank right up there with the all-time WTF concepts:

TSN Mike says the ringleaders of this bad idea (Commissioners Larry Scott of the PAC 12 and Bob Bowlsby of the Big 12) need to rethink their proposal...or better yet, forget about it entirely:

-- Really enjoyed the 40th anniversary Saturday Night Live special. It helps that I am of a certain age and was smack dab in the middle of the SNL target demographic when it debuted in 1975. Here is Bill Simmons' recap of the festivities from Grantland:
