★ Clemson's Milton Jennings has been indefinitely suspended. Sources are telling us he should be back fairly soon, however.
★ The NCAA really wants you to know how transparent it can be when it comes to its tournament-team-picking tools. So it now has up its RPI rankings (should be meaningless) and each individual team sheet with all sorts of data. <--Those are cool, but where are the KenPom, Sagarin and LRMC rankings?
★ Robert Sacre's moment is now.
★ I dig what Dan Hanner's saying here -- and thanks for the shout, Dan -- but the point is, college hoops isn't exciting to the casual dude when the top teams lack identity and polarizing power. For us diehards, it's been a fine year, but not yet thrilling.
★ Here's Scoop Jardine butchering someone's hair.
★ UConn women went into Durham and did their business last night.
★ Imagine if you could take any player from any other team and plug him into your system. Which teams would benefit the most from adding one critical cog?
★ Guess which coach will have his own bobblehead made and given away this week?
★ Lefty Driesell is a leaky faucet and is only damaging his own reputation with the Maryland community the more he speaks about Gary Williams.
★ Loved watching this last night. Click, view, vote: the best 3-point shot in Butler history. A.J. Graves was awesome.
★ I will say the state of Utah will be represented by one team in the NCAA tournament.
★ BracketBusters did not care for the MAAC.
★ God bless those Taylor Trojans.

♬ Moxy Früvous (that website is precious and a time capsule) was just too damn good. Canadian band from the '90s with good sensibility and better harmonies. I'm meeting up in New York City tonight with Jonah Keri and some other hacks. Jonah knows Früvous carries the power.
