Tom Penders vs. Jay Bilas: The former Texas coach is of the opinion that the ESPN college basketball analyst “takes himself and his opinions far too seriously.” Bilas didn’t take the shot personally. “I can dish it out, and I can take it. It’s part of the game. (Penders’) opinion is just as valid as mine. I have zero problems with it. If I get to say what I want, everybody gets to say what they want.” While I like Bilas, I tend to agree with Penders. The best team Penders had at Texas featured BMW (Blanks, Mays, Wright) in 1989-1990, when the Longhorns reached the Elite 8. [Chronicle]
