Indiana Hoops: The Saga Continues

Sampson and IU will face an NCAA committee today. :: AP
Kelvin Sampson and Indiana University officials will defend themselves in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions today and tomorrow. While they're in Seattle, new coach Tom Crean will be drawing up plays for his only remaining scholarship player, who's home in Detroit for the summer.
Big Ten Football Predictions
Multiple Big Ten bloggers got cracking early this summer. Zombie Nation is here with their collective Big Ten football predictions for the upcoming season. On top: Ohio State. On the bottom: Minnesota. Lost in the middle: Michigan. Enraged by the predictions: OTR.

Coming Soon: Big East Lax
The Big East is forming a new men's lacrosse league, and 10-time national champion Syracuse (currently an independent) will join. The league will start competing in spring 2010.

Google to the Rescue
Loyal readers, your lesson of the day is: don't lie about things that a simple Google search can prove false. Chicago State University announced its intention to keep interim baseball coach Husain Mahmoud on board, only to later find out Mahmoud lied about numerous biographical facts -- like being drafted by the Reds in the 30th round of the 1971 MLB draft.
Politics and Jerseys Unite
If you're a Team Obama '08 member but object to aesthetically unpleasing campaign T-shirts, this Obama throwback jersey might be just the ticket.
