    So I walked into the chow hall tonight...

    ...here at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, & what do I see on the TVs -- a replay of the Baylor game on AFN! I've been here over a year & all the sports I've seen on AFN have been broadcasts of ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU, ABC, CBS, NBC, Versus, etc. I've haven't before seen something like the Cyclone Television Network shown on AFN. I just thought that was so cool.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs
