In case you haven't heard, the Duke men's basketball team has a reputation for embellishing fouls. It's gotten so bad that many anti-Dukies put together an application for the fictional Duke Camp for Flopping. Speaking of Duke, who has the more embarrassing picture from Saturday night's game against UNC: Greg Paulus or Brian Zoubek?

Fun Police out at Notre Dame
Led by sophomore Luke Harangody, Notre Dame is having its best hoops season in years. Too bad the students can't enjoy the atmosphere like every other college as the Notre Dame Security Police will no longer let students camp out in "Breytopia" in advance of games.

An SIOC Apology

Meet South Florida's Brittany Link. :: Photo by Bob Fiallo
A couple weeks ago, we told you about a South Florida student who was removed from a Southwest Airlines plane for being too pretty. And since we couldn't find a pic of the woman in question, we went with the best-looking USF student we know, Brittany Link. As it turns out, Brittany was besieged with phone calls about the incident because people saw her pic with the story and assumed it was her. So we'd like to apologize to Brittany, and urge you all to vote for her in College Mansion's "Mansion Madness" Tournament to determine the hottest college student.
