tsunami!

-- Do you ever find "Where were they then?" more fun than "Where are they now?" Consider Anthony Goldwire, just signed to 10-day contract by the Detroit Pistons. Can anybody name his alma matter? Without finding the answer here?

-- Florida's Matt Walsh has pulled a Wayne Simien. He too will be out for several weeks. Anthony Roberson is estatic; he'll no longer have to feign an interest in passing the ball. (In what could only be possible on a squad coached by Billy Donovan, Roberson's assists are this season down from his 3.6 per game average in 2003-2004).

-- MSNBC's Mike Miller dreams of a Final Four involving Illinois, Kansas and North Carolina. The plotlines would be tremendous. Self vs. Williams. Weber vs. Self. Simien vs. Williams. Etc.

-- "The B-Trip" will announce on Thursday what sanctions will be imposed on the school following the indictment of Ryan Wolf, its former basketball coach. No new info (yet) about Ricky Clemons.

-- ESPN.com contributor and Minneapolis Star Tribune beat writer Jeff Shelman's AP ballots are available on his blog. (Welcome to the blogosphere Jeff! Very glad you could join us). More on this subject soon. For now, enjoy Shelman's interview with the Big Ten Wonk.

-- Syracuse University's basketball team is getting in on the tsunami relief action. Fans attending the game against Seton Hall on Saturday night will have an opportunity to donate cash or a check to Tsunami Disaster Relief Fund volunteers located at each of the open gates of the Carrier Dome. Mensches, all of them.

-- Faculty from 28 colleges will gather tomorrow in Nashville to consider reforming the rules governing intercollegiate athletics with the hope of limiting academic fraud. Jim Harrick Jr. has declined an invitation to give the keynote address at the first meeting of the Coalition for Intercollegiate Athletics.
