Quick Dig: Gearing Up for Conference USA Gamenight Edition

Quick Dig:  There are simply too many quality links out there today to not do a quick post with all the essential reading.  With UTEP's battle against USM coming up tonight, here are all the game day links you need.

Must Read:  Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports has an absolute must read on the Tim Floyd- Larry Eustachy friendship.  It's long, but its worth your time..

Miners vs. the Irish?   SB Nation's latest Bracketology has UTEP in the field of 68 as a 13 seed against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Shoutout from the AP: CNNSI has a story on how Floyd quietly has UTEP atop the C-USA.

"Everybody's Good"  This was FanShotted earlier, but thought I'd include it.  Gary Parrish has a nice story on the balance in the league.

Bubble Watch:  ESPN says UAB and Memphis are the only two C-USA squads with at large hopes.

Funny:  While ESPN & Others say C-USA might be a one bid league, they also agree that the C-USA is the 8th best league in America.

The Tide are Scared:  UAB is the best basketball program in Alabama and Mike Davis likes to joke about the Crimson Tide's unwillingness to play the Blazers.

The Prospector:  The UTEP student paper has a nice story up on tight end/forward 2 way- stary Kevin Perry.

Checking in on DC:  HoopsWorld has a very good interview and profile of UTEP alum Derrick Caracter.  Caracter might be the Lakers best trade piece.

The Favorite:  The Memphis Commercial Appeal's Jason Smith thinks UTEP is the favorite to win the C-USA Tournament.  UTEP is the only C-USA team not to lose a league game at home.

Worth Clicking:  The MWC Connection is wondering what the UNLV court might look like if they painted it like Oregon painted their court.
