Tuesday Talkers

 I hate this time of year.  Not because of Christmas because I love Christmas because hey, no work, but because there's so little going on.  College basketball is just so slow.  There might be an interesting game or two, but in general it's pretty boring.  And next week is even worse with Christmas and stuff.  I have no idea why college kids can't play basketball...

Few teams have been more maddeningly inconsistent this season than the Hoyas, who have mixed strong performances against highly ranked teams with games that have been almost too painful to watch.
