Without a hint of embarrassment, four of the songs on this list are in my iTunes. // We're eating less meat. Why? // Five shockingly bad websites. // . // The 30 best taco crimes -- that we know of ...

The first fantastic profile on the unassuming, humbled Cody Zeller has been written, not surprisingly, by Mrs. O'Neil.

★ My envy keeps growing to a sheenier shade of green.

★ Catch up on Andre Drummond's timeline at UConn -- lots gone down.

★ E.B. coming with the negativity! It's the transformation into the college basketball Vader, I can feel it.

★ Syracuse is becoming the Lakers of the Big East.

★ Nineteen percent of college basketball hasn't won a road game this year. Sounds about right, actually.

★ It's an odd, but perfectly fair, question.

★ This is so original and so hilarious. I need video.

★ High school play vs. AAU play. An illuminating read.

★ The Mountain West is attracting transfers and piling them like pancakes. League will be even better next year than it is this year, and this year it's damn good (and not getting its due).

★ What the Buckeyes say needs to be done to avoid hitting a true skid.

★ The Cam Newton rule is classic.

★ Lastly, we're trying to get to 300 likes on Facebook by the weekend. We'll be breaking news, sharing stuff you won't see on the blog there, and surely posting embarrassing pictures of us in time. So whaddya say?

♬ Today's music rec comes from the corners of my mind still cobwebbed thanks the the '90s, which is when Soul Coughing and Mike Doughty were making music that still doesn't make sense between the hours of 6 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. "Circles" is one of the more approachable tunes, though. Coughing can get pretty brown at some points -- not as much as Ween, but close -- yet it was able to tap into a genuine melody here and there.

Wakeup Call: Syracuse, the Lakers of the Big East

"Syracuse is becoming the Lakers of the Big East."

WRONG!

They ARE the Lakers of the Big East (and in the near future they will be the Lakers of the ACC).
