— It has been over an hour since we learned of the five new additions to the Big East — it’s still comical — and more details have emerged. Boise State and San Diego State will join the conference as football-only members, while Houston, UCF, and SMU will join for all sports. With Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia leaving the Big East, the league sits at ten football members with hopes of reaching twelve. Navy could join as a football-only member as early as next week and the conference hopes to add Air Force as the final member of a 12-team league. Temple is the backup plan if Air Force declines.

— The Big East HAS to changed its name after the realignment, right? I vote for ‘Merica Conference.

— Former Indiana interim coach Dan Dakich said on his radio show that he doesn’t think it would be an upset if Indiana beats No. 1 Kentucky in Bloomington on Saturday. Dakich played for Bob Knight from 1981 to 1985 and was Knight’s first graduate assistant from 1985-1987. He took over as head coach of the Hoosiers when Kelvin Sampson resigned after NCAA violations in 2008. He’ll be coming on Kentucky Sports Radio radio tomorrow morning to talk more about his confidence in the Hoosiers this season. It should be fun.

— Tennessee Vols reporter Wes Rucker toyed with UK football fans on Twitter when he tweeted a link to a news story with the headline, “Former Vols star leaves rival SEC East staff, joins Dooley and Co. in Knoxville.” Rather than it being a story about Tee Martin returning home to coach the Vols, it only confirmed Martin’s return to the UK staff next season as the Vols hired former UT running back Jay Graham to coach the position he once played. Graham was on Steve Spurrier’s staff at South Carolina last season.

— There were rumors yesterday of Charlie Strong interviewing for the Texas A&M job but those were shot down today by both sides. Strong likes Louisville and the idea of playing at San Diego State in a conference game on a Friday night. He’s also pumped about team walkthroughs in Boise.

— On this morning’s show, Matt and Mark discussed Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tommy Cook’s ex-wife, and the decline in the world’s supply of camels.

    Dakich is still an IU homer, he has no business being on a show that covers college basketball on a national level. He also picked UNC over Kentucky on Thursday. Make sure to remind him 🙂

    We REALLY need to beat IU.. Reading the hate they are putting up around the World Wide Web is making me very angry…

    Dakitch is a HUGE bore on the television. I would rather listen to a podcast about the Dewey Decimal System than hear him provide color for a game. SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE.

    And he’s an idiot.

    I live in Indy and listen to ESPN radio all day everyday EXCEPT 12-2 when Dakich is on. The guy is a douche.

    They should name the conference “Weak Ass No Bid Conference”!

    There’s a reason Jockitch (Dakich) is a studio host on an also ran network. Players play, Coaches coach, those that can’t do either announce. Shut up, and #Browdown!

    Winning on Fridays > being dismantled on Saturdays. You forgot to mention how much Charlie Strong will enjoy whipping Joker until he’s fired.

    I listened to the interview after listening to the commentary about the interview. Over all he sounded pretty good. From an efficiency standpoint, IU has looked very strong this season.

    I hope we win by 20 or 30 but not sure if that is what will occur. Younger fans don’t understand the hatred or the history and nature of this rivalry.
