- The big story making the rounds yesterday centered around Auburn, their recent title team, and a player named Mike McNeil. The story alleges payments to players, grade altering, criminal behavior, and some disturbing actions on the part of the Auburn coaching staff. The SBNation take and roundup of tweets and such is here while you can find the original story here. At best, this is just a takedown piece not unlike what the Huskies have been victims of over their history. At worst, this could be the brick that breaks the camel's back with Auburn, a school with a rich history of flaunting NCAA rules, and ruins the life and promising career of a kid who may have done nothing near what he's being accused of.
- Minnesota hired Richard Pitino (son of Rick Pitino) to be their new head coach. Wikipedia did not let us down (click to embiggen, it's worth it):
- For the video game fans out there, videos of EA's NCAA 2014 are coming out, as is information about what changes and upgrades will be made. No surprise that it's the same old song and dance: brand new whatsit and a sleek shiny makeover to the whatever and at the end of the day it's basically the same game it was last year.

- Here's Nate Robinson doing Nate Robinson things:

- I don't have a link for this, but Andy Enfield's introductory press conference was yesterday. Pat Hayden, comedian that he is, claimed that hiring Enfield "wasn't about the past two weeks." And that's just about the funniest thing I've read in quite some time. Basically, he's claiming that if Enfield hadn't taken FGCU to the Sweet-16, they still would've had him on their radar. So here's your reminder that Enfield has all of 2 years of head coaching experience, and this year? They didn't even win the Atlantic Sun's regular season title. Yes, it's believable that that resume was on your radar before the Sweet-16 run, Pat..
- Tosh Lupoi is the latest Husky coach to get mic'd up
When I was living in New York and didn't have a penny to my name, I would walk around the streets and occasionally I would see a dot or something. And I'd think, that'll be good, that'll be a good spot for me when I'm homeless.
