Regretfully, John R. Wooden

This excerpt speaks for itself.

Heard something funny about five minutes into the second half of the Iowa State-Drake men's basketball game Tuesday night. Hysterical.

"Curtis Stinson is off the watch list for the John Wooden Award," an Iowa State official told me in a hushed voice. The kind of voice you often hear in movies when something priceless and invaluable - Maltese Falcon, Declaration of Independence, John Fogerty - turns up missing.

Here's the story. It's a stitch. Apparently, when the Wooden preseason top 50 was compiled and released in early August, Iowa State's star sophomore point guard was on it.

Then, a week ago, he...wasn't.

When the Cyclones called about the discrepancy, the Wooden people said that he wasn't supposed to be there in the first place. (Hang on! It gets better.) They were very apologetic. They explained that it was their mistake. That an intern had miscounted the preseason votes and accidentally added Curtis to the initial list.

Accidentally. Ha. Ha.
