Josh, Great write up! thanks for putting it together!

Interesting that Mark Jackson is clearly in the mix as they figure out what's the best lineup. It seems Steve's trying to figure out if he should play AJ and 4 perimeter guys or 2 bigs w AJ at the 4. All of that likely depends on the who he believes are his best 5-7 guys.

Hi, I am a new supporter to CoBL.

If you're reading this, I know two things about you:

1. You have no life.
2. I'm cheaper than you.

Therefore, you have zero excuse not to buck up 3 bucks a month. It took me approximately 2.5 minutes and I'm a slow typer of credit card numbers. Support Josh. Now. Go.

I'm in. And it didn't even bother me that they charged me for the entire month of October. It's $3!. Looking forward to the coverage.

Well played, Jeff. I'm in even though I hate subscriptions. I used the $ I saved by avoiding ESPN+

Last time I think I was the one who spoiled Josh's mood by asking about a trial. I reeeeaaally hate subscriptions. Still, I won't make that mistake again. $3 - I'm in too. Thanks Jeff2SF for the rallying cry.

Thanks, all. I promise this all means a ton. And I know it's not the most tangible benefit, and it's not perhaps something that Penn sees the benefits of, but the area's Division II and Division III rosters are FILLED with kids who got exposure from CoBL. I get one or two messages a week from a parent or player who's currently in college about how much CoBL helped them get where they are, and their college coach found them because of us, etc. So you're supporting this content, for one, but it really does make a difference.

Josh, would it be possible to add an annual subscription option?

Unfortunately, Patreon doesn't provide that option. But it's all the same in the end.

Good job guys. I hate subs too. I think this is my first since a newspaper sub a decade ago. But we can pay 36 a year for some Penn content.

If you have paypal or a Patreon sub it will take you less than a minute to sign up.

I didn't have a Patreon account. Setting that up took 1:29. After that, supporting Josh took another :36.

My interest in Josh's work is mainly about Penn and the fact that he is the only one calling around for info and doing research. The DP and Inquirer don't seem to be doing that anymore.

I never thought about the kids getting exposure, but I guess that's a good thing too.

Hey Josh. Have you ever been to Providence?

The city, or college? My college girlfriend went to Brown, so I've been to the city a few times, but not in a decade. Never been to PC itself. Why do you ask?

Oh, right! That's very cool. I doubt I'll be traveling much if at all this season, between my two main jobs and all of that. Plus, we always have family in from out-of-town for Thanksgiving week. But I'll probably find a way to watch it on TV!
