7:47 a.m. EST: HEADIN’ HOME
Well, we’re packing up and heading home. Many in the travel party will head to other destinations, including a number of the players who are still on winter break. They’ll have some time off now after a long season. Those of us going back to Madison will load our extra luggage onto Kenny’s equipment truck and we’ll pick it up when it arrives at the McClain Center on Thursday afternoon. We’re due to fly out at 1 p.m. today and arrive in Madison around 2:30 (central time). Temperature here right now is 43 degrees. Of course, everyone is “freezing” here. It’s all relative.
