Coaches vs Cancer Notebook

Thanks to wonders of modern technology I'm filing my Coaches vs Cancer notebook from the train leaving the event. Technology is a great thing right. Now on to the notebook.

Game 1 Cuse vs Cal
• 1:08 into the game Triche heads to the bench for Jardine. Quick hook for freshman.
• Cuse might be better with Scoop at the point then the freshman. Team moves better with him in the lineup.
• Wes Johnson might be the most athletic player Jimmy has ever had at the 'Cuse and a one and done.
• I think this Cuse team might be better then last years.
• The biggest issue with Cal is that they need a third scorer to take the pressure off Randle and Christopher.

Game 2 UNC vs. OSU
• Ohio State is so small on the back line they are going to have trouble rebounding all year.
• Jon Henson is skinny on tv but he is really skinny in person. Show that kid a cheese burger.
• The PA got one of the Wear twins mixed up have to love that.
• The lack of outside shooting is going to continue to haunt the Heels. Guard plays wins in March and right now they lack that.

Going to be a busy next couple of days

This is the best time of the sports season. College Basketball is just started, College Football is coming to an end. The NHL, NBA, NFL are all going. With all of these options, the OTWT Tailgating crew can not help but head to some games. On Thursday the gang will be at the Madison Square Garden for the Coaches vs. Cancer events which features 'Cuse vs. Cal and North Carolina vs. Ohio State. Then on Saturday, the gang will be making the trip from home base in New Jersey to see Rutgers take on 'Cuse in football. A couple of big events in a couple of days, should be a lot of fun. Check back later in the week to see all of the sites and sounds from the events.
