I nearly died at this animation video. // Here's an epic Craiglist ad to get your day off to a great start. // If you're in high school reading this, wondering which colleges are the most vegan-friendly, then I've got the list for you. // Some more gift ideas for you. // "The odds of finding an alien civilization out there are about to increase immensely." ...

★ Forde comes out swinging after Boeheim's press conference last night.

★ Goodman's Tuesday columns will look like this. Thanks for the mention, Jeffy! I can't believe I'm actually reading Goodman write about free-throw rate and defensive efficiency. A genuine shock to my system.

★ Uh, folks, Perry Jones is back.

★ These tournament fields are announced a year in advance usually, so there's not really time, in season, to really react. But that said, the Battle 4 Atlantis 2012 bracket is loaded, friends.

★ Austin Hatch, the highly touted recruit who survived the second plane crash of his life this past summer, isn't likely to play basketball this season. I'm just concerned about the kid's well-being, mentally.

★ Miss any of that Boeheim video? Plenty of it here.

★ Does Kentucky cut off the Indiana game if it goes to 18-game SEC schedule next year?

★ Detroit mayor Dave Bing was a teammate of Jim Boeheim and close friend of Bernie Fine. What is he thinking today?

★ Virginia got a very nice win over Michigan last night. I still doubt the Hoos' long-term viability this season, though.

★ Fran Dunphy's interviews on paper don't do it justice how he is to talk to in person.

Interesting subplot with tonight's Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Parents on the hurried drive!

★ Weird: West Virginia apparently still hasn't been paid by the Big East for its 2010 NCAA tournament appearance. That's worse than your buddy who still somehow manages to dodge paying you back that $40 he's owed you since '09.

★ The don't-overreact! column you knew was coming after Ohio State's lopsided win over Duke.

★ Wait, Dana Altman lost another one of his freshman? Two frosh have quit the team already. Not a good sign at all.

► Yeah, Austin Rivers can really put it on a string.

♬ Your band recommendation for today is Blind Melon, who is a top-five underrated one-hit wonder band from the '90s. The self-titled album features "No Rain," but "Nico" is the better record. "The Pusher" is just awesome. Shannon Hoon an overlooked vocalist who left the planet too soon.

ESPN is no better and their website sucks. I hate watching sports on CBS but their website is about as good as it gets as far as layout but can agree with the slant I see it as well.

Is this supposed to be a professional, unbiased website?   I guess CBS wants their posters and readers to switch to ESPN.

For all the morons calling for Boeheim to be fired, including these "support groups" who use any opportunity to get on their soapboxes, shame on you. Jim Boeheim has absolutely nothing to do with this story regarding Bernie Fine. The only reason his name is being mentioned in this story is because he is a coaching legend. Like all the professional sports media sources like Cowherd, Rome, and Dick Vitale defending Boeheim, it should make people get the point...he has no involvement whatsoever. You think the chancellor would stand behind him stoutly if there was ever any doubt. There are three pieces of white trash trying to make a buck. Oh yeah, sure the abuse went until you were 27 years old....oh, and sure that tape wasn't crap! Boeheim and his wife are philanthropists and if you haters want him to lost his job, you will be disappointed. What will even be better is when the Feds find no evidence and Bernie will be least his reputation hopefully will be.
