naming rights

-- Joe Hawk of the Las-Vegas Review-Journal pleads with UNLV administrators to name the Thomas & Mack Center's floor after Jerry Tarkanian, the Runnin' Rebels ethically challenged ex-coach. Only Joe could write such a column without making so much as an attempt to address the basis for NCAA investigations. Count me as among those happy the T&M court remains nameless.

-- Lou Henson, 21 wins short of becoming only the fifth Division I coach with 800 career victories, will decide after the season whether to retire. Here's hoping he puts his health before his Hall of Fame legacy.

-- Dennis Mahoney of the Glencoe (IL) News profiles Wake Forest walk-on Brian Jessen. No Christian Moody, Jessen lives the high life without the stress of actual playing time.

-- Rick Alonzo of the St. Paul (MN) Pioneer Press suggests Minnesota's road victory against Ohio State moves the Gophers closer to a postseason berth. I agree and again advise readers to review Jeff Shelman's column on Minnesota's summer attitude adjustment. (Shelman, btw, also posted his weekly ESPN column yesterday. Why is Illinois so good? Because sharing is caring).
