The Chronicle of Higher Education released its list of 2008 commencement speakers and the big winners appear to be Carnegie Mellon (Al Gore) and Furman University (George W. Bush) while some choices (Lane College: Star Jones, Dowling College: Allan Houston) left us scratching our heads. Our personal favorite, however, is Liberty College, who will welcome Chuck Norris to the podium to address the graduating class.

Comings and Goings in Bloomington

In one of the most eye-opening statements we've seen in a while, Kelvin Sampson claims that he did nothing wrong at Indiana. Meanwhile, current Hoosiers coach Tom Crean is livid that Eli Holman told him he was transferring to be closer to family, only to enroll at a school further away from them than IU. It's not all bad for the Hoosiers, though -- former Georgetown guard Jeremiah Rivers is on his way to Bloomington to play for Crean.
