The Dean's List
• The worst part about Arizona recruit
• My grandpa hated to be called "Buster." Call him Buster and he'd challenge you to a fight. (I think they called it fisticuffs back then.) But that's what everyone calls

• It's been a tough week for Gonzaga forward
• In some stories, no one wins.
• If you were an NCAA compliance officer, would taking a position at Indiana be the best job in the world or the worst? Judging by
• "Don't judge." That's what my mom always used to say, which is like when
• When you run into a bear in the woods, don't run away. Same goes for eight cops in an alley.
• We all know the day after the All-Star Game is the slowest sports day of the year, but we should really extend that to an entire week. As evidence, I present to you two headlines from sports stories last week, both of which have to do with exciting and innovative football jersey designs. Last Monday, the AP released a story on Michigan's new football uniforms. (Get this, "they retain the Wolverines' maize-and-blue color scheme." You don't say...) And then the very next day, "the essential global news network" came out with another story announcing Vanderbilt's latest football jerseys, which will feature a one-inch solid black stripe on the jersey sleeves instead of the former two-color stripe. Truly groundbreaking. Maybe we'll be lucky and get a sock update next week.
