Ravenna record Courrier beat writer Dave Carducci recently posted this intriguing story about Athletic director Laing Kennedy and his support of Rob Senderoff over on the the NCAABBS board. I thought it would pass it along, it's a pretty good read.

O'Shea leaves OU

It comes as quite the surprise that Ohio University Head basketball coach Tim O'Shea jumped ship earlier this week. He accepted a position as the men's basketball coach at the newly established, in D1 atleast, Bryant University.

Unfortunately I have to fill in and do some high school track and field coverage Friday in Columbus instead. So, no Grimsley for me and no blog post about it for you.
