  • The “Brutal Honesty” Award goes to Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury, when asked for his thoughts on the SEC Tournament being in Tampa this season: “It’s probably the worst venue we can have, as far as attendance.  It was very obvious for us there’s nothing positive about Tampa.” Good thing his team probably won’t be there too long, huh? (Jackson Clarion-Ledger)
  • Billy Gillispie has done a horrible job at Kentucky.  He’s alienated fans and players alike, blames his players for every loss rather than his inept coaching, and has managed to end the season on a four-game losing streak for the first time in Kentucky history.  Other than that, he’s great.  More bullet points on why he sucks are here.  (John Clay, Lexington Herald Leader)
  • My favorite fan comment on the C-USA Edge, from a fan simply named Fred: “NC should stand for No Defense.”  I wish I had made that up. (C-USA Edge)
  • Five Moments in Economic Punditry Gone Wrong (Esquire)
  • Whatever happened to just plain old baseball cards?  Why do we have to jack them up with some fruity 3D computer nonsense?  Look at the video accompanying this story – am I just getting old or is this really, really stupid? (New York Times)
