As a result, the star wattage was decidedly down at Big East media day Wednesday. But the enthusiasm was high, with Commissioner Val Ackerman and Georgetown Coach John Thompson III , among others, extolling the muscle and must-watch games in store in the reconstituted league that consists of seven former Big East members and newcomers Butler , Creighton and Xavier . If you look around the room, the quality of coaching is outstanding, said Thompson, whose Hoyas finished 25-7 last season and were co-champions of the Big East regular season. Yes, we lost some Hall of Fame coaches, but I dont think too many teams want to go up against the guys in this room. Every game is going to be a battle. That was true last year; thats going to be true this year. Marquette Coach Buzz Williams , whose Golden Eagles were picked by the leagues coaches to win the 2013-14 regular season title, proclaimed the Big East one of the best two or three conferences in the country. Georgetown was picked second, garnering two of the 10 first-place votes. And Creighton , which boasts the leagues unanimous preseason player of the year, senior forward Doug McDermott, was picked third. Every coach is going to say they play in the best league, said Marquettes Williams, whose team reached the NCAA tournaments region finals, but if you objectively study the numbers, I think what this league has done the last five years speaks for itself. I think this year that will hold firm, too. Mere proclamations dont land leagues a place among college basketballs elite, however. Nor can they conjure passionate rivalries to replace those that stoked the Big East of old, such as Georgetown-Syracuse . Those things are earned on court, over time. Ackerman, the former WNBA commissioner who took the reins of the Big East on July 1, insisted the new league was up to the task, committed to proving that a league that makes basketball rather than big-money football its calling card can be financially viable and nationally respected. Theres no doubt: The eyes of the basketball world and the eyes of others in college sports are definitely on the league, said Ackerman, a former standout at Virginia. But I think everybody in our league uses that as a source of motivation. When Georgetown opens its season Nov. 8 against Pac-12 power Oregon in South Korea, it will be without do-it-all forward Otto Porter Jr., last seasons Big East player of the year, who was chosen by the Wizards with the No.
Celebrity Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr. Brings Tips For Kidney-Friendly Foods and Football Tailgating to H by Business Wire via The Motley Fool Oct 17th 2013 8:33AM Updated Oct 17th 2013 8:34AM Celebrity Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr. , host of Food Network’s cooking show ” Big Daddy’s House “, are bringing the “flavor of bold” to Houston on Tuesday, Oct. 22. With more than 32,000 dialysis patients in Texas and football season in full swing, McCargo will visit Houston as part of a five-city, cross-country tour to meet with dialysis patients and their families and tell them about kidney-friendly tailgating foods that are affordable, easy to make and enjoyable for the entire family. An estimated 26 million Americans have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is a progressive, usually permanent loss of kidney function. When CKD leads to kidney failure, the only treatments are a kidney transplant or dialysis, a filtering process that removes waste products and extra fluids from the blood. To stay healthy, people on dialysis also have to limit their intake of potassium, phosphorus, salt and saturated fats. While that can make their meals bland and boring, McCargo and FMCNA have developed a collection of mouth-watering kidney-friendly recipes to put variety and bold flavors back in their diets. Free and open to the public, McCargo’s appearances at two of the 36 FMCNA clinics in the Houston area are intended to share cooking tips and delicious tailgating recipes developed for dialysis patients in collaboration with the company’s dietitians. McCargo will offer samples from some of his tastiest tailgating recipes, such as honey-chipotle chicken wings and fall harvest orzo pasta salad, at the following locations: Fresenius Medical Care Museum District 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
