Dean Smith unretires: Forget the Tubby Smith rumors, it's Dean to UVa. Dean: "I'm really looking forward to competing against [K] again. He's a good coach and I wonder if he still feels challenged. He has so much confidence now that he's able to spend lots of time away from his job filming commercials. Have you seen his commercials yet?

But Dean Smith was already at UVA. Oh you meant the coach--I was thinking of Terry Holland's dog in the 80s.

In other news, The University of Tennessee has rechanged the name of their home basketball court from "The Summitt" to "Peyton Manning Arena." "Don't think of this as an insult to the legacy of Pat Summitt," Tennessee Athlectic Director Mike Hamilton said. "Think of it as an incentive for her to stay ahead of Dean Smith's record as he adds to his win total. Besides, it's so much more important-sounding to name it after an actual athlete from the men's team, not to mention a personally successful professional and Volunteer alumnus."

I got excited and hope filled my heart for one glorious second. Finally, a decent coach at the alma mater. Fuckers.
