The Morning Mix

Sep 27, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

The NFL referees are back,  but The Morning Mix never left. Remember that.

- In an effort to make their Midnight Madness seem more “hip” and/or “cool”, Syracuse has decided against having Tone Loc for a second straight year. Instead, former-guard Scoop Jardine will M.C. the event, along with his girlfriend the daughter of Michael Jordan

- More Midnight Madness intel: George Washington and UConn

- Rappelling down the face of a rock is scary business. Normally, I have no business discussing it. But Rutgers Mike Rice is going to give it “the ol’ college try”. He’s a better man than I’ll ever be

- Umm, this is the main issue I’ve had with aircraft carrier games the entire time

- What should we expect from the Big East in 2012-2013? That’s a very good question

- Anybody else looking forward to the bi-annual Xavier/Butler title that’s just beyond the horizon? Remember when the #Expansionocalypse big-wigs were talking about so-called “new rivalries”? I think this is what they had in mind

- Since we’re on the subject of Butler, here’s a team preview for the 2012-2013 Bulldogs squad

- More Butler: Regardless or “irregardless” of the outcome, Butler will not be taking over for Duke’s 2010 national championship title

- Michigan State is going to be “a force to be reckoned with“? C”mon Izzo. That’s a tad strong even for your taste

- It’s only Wednesday, but I’m pretty confident that the Montana Grizzlies have had the worst.week.ever

- BYU-transfer Damarcus Harrison has been granted a waiver by the NCAA that makes him immediately eligible to play for the Clemson Tigers

- In case you missed it from earlier on Tuesday, Nebraska AD (and famous football coach) Tom Osborne announced his retirement, effective in January

- Reggie Cameron, an elite shooter out of Hudson Catholic (NJ) has committed to Georgetown and should fit into JTIII’s offensive system rather well

- Interested in trying out for the Detroit men’s basketball team? Here’s your chance

- If your fantasy football league gets points for offensive rebounds or eFG%, this link is for you

 

And we end today’s edition of The Morning Mix with the following:

My college coach would make us turn in our scouting report before each game out of fear of espionage. Players at Duke are getting IPads. The world is a scary, scary place
