Mike Davis resigns as Indiana University basketball coach.: Most stories say the resignation will be effective at the end of the season, others say it will take effect immediately. IU has called a news conference at 3:30pm EST today. IU President Adam Herbert and AD Rick Greenspan will also be in attendance. Who's next for Indiana, and what's next for Davis?

Greg Maddux gets career win #300!: It wasn't easy, but he did it. (And yes, I am happy he did it as a Cub!) Will we ever see another 300-game winner?

Ricky isn't running anymore.: (Miami Herald link, registration required) In a shocker, Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has told the Miami Herald that he's week before training camp begins. Between Ogunleye's holdout and now this, it's going to be a very, very rough season for the Dolphins.

Bob Knight is in trouble again.: This time he blew up at the chancellor of Texas Tech at a salad bar, after the chancellor complimented him on his recent behavior. Early reports said that Knight would be suspended for five days, but now that's not going to happen. Is anyone really surprised?

TV Commentator Awards from Dr. Z

I am surprised Baldinger got such a high rating. He's no favorite in Chicago. I remember last season during the last or second to last game he spent the whole time lobbying for Dick Jauron to keep his job. I like to turn down the commentators on TV and turn up the radio commentators when I watch the Bears.

Back to Work Randy: You Didn't Even Make the Top Five.

The punky QB known as McMahon didn't make it either.

Knockout prose

Four I really like: The Jordan Rules by Sam Smith Mad as Hell by Mike Lupica Personal Fouls by Peter Golenbock A Season on the Brink by John Feinstein And I will confess that I read and actually enjoyed Bad as I Wanna Be by Dennis Rodman. Once you get past everything about Madonna and stuff like that (which isn't even a majority of the book), his thoughts on the game of basketball and his early life are pretty interesting.

What if?

I liked revised history #4 in this scenario (College Basketball). Gee, imagine that! : ) The whole What-If issue was really interesting.

What If?

That's a great ad.

MLB teams in dire dinero dilemma.

Long-term, city size correlates very well with winning percentage. Someone must have forgotten to tell the Chicago Cubs and White Sox that fact. (And yes, I am a Cubs fan, so I can say this. ; ))

The NBA Draft.

The Bulls had a good draft this year, even if it was an all-ACC draft. : ) I was frightened that Jerry Krause was going to do something to pick up Yao Ming, but I am glad to see he didn't. I'm actually getting excited about the Bulls this season.
