Jerel McNeal out for NCAA tournament


Rosiak has the scoop today on his blog. McNeal is done for 2006-2007.

Or not -- see, Todd Rosiak re-filed a second news brief on the JS site today......now he says that McNeal is out only for this weekend.

Ahem. Sounds fishy to me. Ya think MU made a few phone calls to the Journal-Sentinel? That's odd because I bet Rosiak checked with multiple sources before filing his initial news brief.

For my money, I'm guessing Rosiak's original scoop -- that McNeal is done for the year -- is the right call. It was confirmed later by ESPN. ESPNews then confirmed the story as well in their Breaking News segment.

The MUScoop guys are all over it.

MSNBC article lists 5 "dark horses" including MU. Notice all these teams are from the Big East. I don't know if that was on purpose or not. So take it as you will.

Sorry to hear about McNeal. He is my favorite player in the NCAA not on Villanova.
