Afternoon Linkage: Gonzaga the weak
February, 1, 2010

- A postmortem of Indiana's last-second loss at Illinois Saturday.
- Ken Pomeroy has had his suspicions about Gonzaga for a few weeks now, but being the polite, deferential man that he is, kept them in his "back pocket" until they became relevant. On Saturday, thanks to a four-point upset loss at San Fransisco, they did, and Pomeroy is here to explain why.
- Meanwhile, Slipper Still Fits thinks Gonzaga fans should have known a loss was coming eventually and prepared themselves accordingly.
- Is the ACC worse than anyone thought? In the wake of Georgetown's rather convincing offensive flurry against Duke, Ballin Is A Habit questions the Devils', and the ACC's, legitimacy.
- After easily handling Harvard Friday night, Cornell isn't just your Ivy League favorite. They're also a batch of wild and crazy guys. Senior John Jacques, writing at the Quad, tells stories of how Cornell stays loose and fancy free in their down time. Sadly, there's no mention of famous Cornell grad Andy Bernard's a capella group, "Here Comes Treble."
- Yet Another Basketball Blog's Dan Hanner continued his coach-heavy coverage this weekend with a rankings-free look at the "pulse" of college basketball's teams as we head into February.
- I wrote last week that Georgia Tech was confusing; I can no more wrap my head around the Yellow Jackets now than before this week's blowout wins. It's good to see Mike DeCourcy shares my confusion.
