When the University of Texas sent out a press release on Wednesday noting that Dexter Pittman** was returning to school, I first thought it was an April Fool's joke. When a player that no one expects to go pro, doesn't go pro, is it really news? Of course not. Which is why I present to you tonight's official CollegeHoops.net press release: Shawn Siegel to Return to Work Tomorrow
Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a Dionte Christmas (couldn't resist), a Happy almost New Year's, a Joyous Hannukah and the whole deal. And while we're at it, enjoy Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, Kwanzaa, and anything else you may be celebrating.. including birthdays, births, anniversaries, promotions, graduations, holes in ones, poker tournament wins, 300 games in bowling, and first slam dunks (which I'm still waiting for)!
We need knowledgable/intelligent/passionate readers to manage new UGroups on CHN. We're looking specifically for fans of big-time programs who want to focus on their teams, or followers of any of the 31 conferences. Email firstname.lastname@example.org Re: UGroups if you're interested!
Just wanted to apologize for any possible site downtime or extreme slowness you may be experiencing today (especially around 5 to 6:30). Not quite sure what the deal is to be honest, as various tech guys have been trying to figure things out to no avail. But hopefully everything will return to normal shortly.

Just a quick note about the lack of usual updates on Wednesday & Thursday. I'm with family for Yom Kippur.. so taking a little break. By tomorrow night, I'll have the next article in the State of '08 series up, as well as the Big East Starting Fives part 2 article.
Also, in coming weeks we'll be rolling out the usual assortment of preview articles, (including work by a couple new writers), to get the season going.
Just a quick note that there will be limited updates the next two days due to the Jewish Holidays. There will however be the usual daily Top 144 preview.
