MORE PR. Another tidbit from his press conference:

STOPPING TAVON. Wally Burnham talks about stopping the offensive juggernaut that is West Virginia.
ANOTHER TOP 100 RECRUIT. Fred Hoiberg just keeps reeling them in. This time, it's KC area PG Clayton Custer. Custer is a Rivals 4 star recruit and also held offers from Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and South Carolina.

BOISE, SDSU, BYU GOING BACK TO MWC? Unhappy with the newest round of realignment, the three schools might go back to the MWC and never play in the Big East.
CALLING TYRANN MATHIEU... Iowa may be decriminalizing marijuana soon.
BIG TEN PARTY BEVERAGES. Iowa gets Busch Light, which "tastes like a mouthful of fire extinguisher foam". Not sure who's actually tasted fire extinguisher form to have that comparison ready, but it seems apropos.
