The News

--Last chance to join the Mondesi Madness pool on Yahoo Sports. Click this link to enter, then "join a group", then "join a private group". The Group ID# is 71286. The password is mondesi.
--As per the survey I posted last week, one of the requests I heard most was "more interviews". Ask and you shall receive. I already have several in the bag that I think you'll really enjoy. Check back soon. I'm hoping to make this a regular feature as per your wishes.
And now some real news:
--Two major changes for the Pitt Panthers football team: Dorin Dickerson moves from LB to TE/H-Back, and John Malecki moves from DT to the offensive line. Dickerson was a pretty hyped prospect when he arrived a few years ago, so I'm hoping he can finally find a position to reach his full potential. I'm guessing his struggles stem from the fact that no one ever made an action figure of him while he was at West Allegheny.
--The Cal U Vulcans have reached the Elite 8 behind a 31 year old senior. His name is Ron Banks, and he joined the Vulcans two years ago from Junior College at the ripe young age of 29.
Banks put up 27 in the D-2 East Regional against Millersville, and next the "Old Man" will lead the Vulcans to Springfield, MA, where they'll face off against Alaska Anchorage in the National Quarterfinal. Live long and prosper.

--Elite 8s are contagious at Cal U, where their women's team also resides after an 86-71 win over Shepherd. Can we send some Cal reps to visit Pitt and give them some tips on reaching this magical round?
--There are really Pitt students who aren't skipping class to watch the first-round game against Oral Roberts? Isn't that grounds for expulsion?
--Chad Johnson announced that he's above offseason training with the Bengals. He'll be joined in not practicing by TJ Houshmandzadeh. Yep, the offense is really coming together in Cincinnati.
--How many of you will tune in to watch Erin Andrews give a talk to Florida journalism students on Thursday?
--The new Dale Jr. candy bar: gay?
--Busted Coverage shows us that Oral Roberts Taunting Can Be Real Humorous.

I wish I could have skipped classes to watch Pitt in the NCAA's while I was in school there. My junior year, we made the NIT and lost to Arkansas in the 2nd round. I think we watched the game from Peter's Pub on a WED night.

It was a crushing defeat as Jason Maile, Garret Thomas, Kellii Taylor, Marc Blount & Co. just couldn't get it done against the Razorbacks and what at the time was only about 28 minutes of hell, down from the usual 40 minutes.
