'06 was some kinda class

Gregoden---If the Class of 2006 had played four years in college - an unlikely concept for about 30 years now - Thursday's NBA Draft would have featured Kevin Durant, Buffalo native Greg Oden, pictured right, Stephen Curry, and Robin and Brook Lopez just to name a few.

You'll also notice that among the top 14 players only Niagara Falls Paul Harris is not currently playing in The League.

---Tom Izzo is the man at Michigan State.

---Larry Felser writes Texas rejection of the Pac-10 puts probation ridden USC in the spotlight. And while we're on the subject of expansion, is more change coming?
