The Morning Mix

Oct 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

- Only somebody like Jeff Goodman  has the contacts needed in order to put together a comprehensive list of all the “secret” scrimmages taking place across the country

- Only Wisconsin forward Mike Bruesewitz would sustain a major cut while diving for a loose ball in practice. The Badgers senior detailed his bizarre practice injury

- The NEC held their conference media day yesterday, and utilized social media to it’s fullest. Here is one of the best event recaps you will find

- The bloggers at CBS put together their list of the top-50 big men in the country

- A breakdown of the preseason events that will feature Pac-12 teams, courtesy of Rush The Court

- Since Chane Behanan isn’t allowed to speak to the media throughout the entire season, his high school basketball coach is obviously the next logical choice for insight on what the Louisville forward is thinking….

- I completely support Geno Auriemma’s notion of lowering the rims for women’s hoops. Anything to increase dunkage rate is a plus. A female #POSTERIZED is still a #POSTERIZED

- Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney will miss at least one week as he recovers from a tonsillectomy. The redshirt freshman is expected to nbe the first guard off the bench for Jim Boeheim

- Best headline of the day (A damn-good article too): “Z Mason Demands Respect”. That name always demands respect

- Did you all see former-Jayhawk Thomas Robinson drop a massive preseason #POSTERIZED on new Los Angeles Laker Dwight Howard? Yeah, Bill Self is going to have trouble replacing that

- Indiana was chosen as the preseason favorites to win the Big-10 Conference Championship. Shocker, I know

- I really love what College Chalktalk is doing this season. One of the ways they are stepping up their game is by adding more video content. I am a big fan of this. Viewers wants options. Providing multiple media platforms for viewers to choose from make them happy
