Re: Where Are You Going Next Year

I'm not that great a player but I'll be at Michigan State next year. I'm up for staffing things even if I don't play much.

Since there's less than a week until the tournament and I haven't had anyone else express interest, I'm going to go ahead and close the field. I'm sending out an e-mail with updated information tonight; let me know if you don't receive it.

Re: North Carolina '08-'09

With Robinson changing their tournament date to December 6th, it looks like November 1st may work for Tar Heel Cup (when I was checking the football schedule for away games, I failed to notice that there was no game at all on November 1st); would this date pose any problems for North Carolina teams?...
