Hash in the House

Hasheem Thabeet, bedecked in some cool sunglasses, took in Monday night's national championship game with UConn graduate student-manager Justin Evanovic. Thabeet was presented with his second straight national defensive player of the year award the night before. He was besieged by autograph-seekers after the game and asked security to help usher him out, but no such luck.

Thanks David for the great blog this year. I enjoyed reading it from Iowa on a daily basis. Losing in the final four is tough, especially around the big ten crowd I have to listen to.

Honestly, what do you think the sanctions could be? Do you think ater majok will even be able to play? From what I know all all nochimson did was get him into a game. Were there any free meals or surgery like the Miles case?

A lot of people are saying Uconn won't be a top-25 team next year. With kemba, dyson, robinson, alex o, and edwards, majok, or okwandu, I think a sweet 16 is easily possible.

Keep updating in the offseason and thanks again,

agree thanks Dave for all you've done this season, your blog has really made me smile during these difficult times. I really hope the best for this Uconn team and for the seniors graduating like Austrie, Adrien, and Price along with Hasheem. Looking forward to what you have to say in the offseason.

Thanks for your compliments, will definitely continue to update the blog through the off-season.

Andrew: From what I've been told by neutral parties, if the infractions are nothing more than what we pretty much know now, the penalties probably won't be too severe (recruiting restrictions, maybe loss of a skolly). Of course, the NCAA may find more than what was originally reported, and if so, who knows how stiff the penalties could be.

Thanks again.

What happens when too many recruits are committed for scholarship spots available? If we lose 1, would somebody have to go?

Dave what ever happened to this so called article yahoo was going to release about Majok? Never surfaced or maybe not yet? Apparently heard on a message board that Majok is clear of any investigation wrong doing

While the rumors were hot and heavy out in Detroit that another Yahoo! story was imminent, apparently they were just that -- rumors.

I wouldn't expect too much more to surface, but you never know.
