Around the Hall: Non-Conference Hall Pass, Programs On the Way Up, Jim Boeheim

The Pirates begin their season this Friday, November 13th against Saint Peter's and you can catch all the Pirates non-conference home games by purchasing a Hall Pass.

SHU is offering an option for a yearly pass at $42.45 or a monthly pass for $5.95. I don't understand the incentive behind the yearly option as the non-conference schedule will be over by the end of December. Essentially, you would pay $42.45 for 2 months of action instead of $11.90, not a tough decision.

The Denver Post looks at the top national story lines across college basketball, player of the year candidates, impact freshmen, programs on the way up/down and coaches on the hot seat. The Denver Post got it right as they didn't list Gonzo as on the hot seat, like we saw here. Instead, they mention the Seton Hall program among five on the way up:

5. Seton Hall. Bobby Gonzalez, in his fourth year, will mix three quality transfers in 6-8 Herb Pope (New Mexico State), 6-2 Keon Lawrence (Missouri) and 6-5 Jeff Robinson (Memphis) with four returning starters. That includes 6-5 guard Jeremy Hazell, the Big East's No. 2 scorer last year.

Syracuse.com asked the coaches of the Big East to weigh in with their opinions on Jim Boeheim, who will win his 800th game with his teams first win of the season. Bobby Gonzalez said a lot of positive things regarding his thoughts on the Syracuse head coach, including:

There’s not going to be many more people that that will ever happen with again. It’s a dynasty. The days of one coach staying at one place for that long a time is never going to happen again. Dean Smith, Jim Boeheim, Jim Calhoun. Guys like that, it just doesn’t happen any more. The pressure to win. The internet. The fans. The alumni. The media. The administration. It just doesn’t happen. So I think Coach Boeheim is truly a living legend.
