ashley & rick, sitting in a tree

-- Via Brian Sharp at the Iowa City Press-Citizen, a collective "oops" from the University of Iowa faculty.

Roughly two years after a University of Iowa faculty commission recommended the school develop a student-athlete code of conduct specifying consequences for certain infractions, UI officials said Tuesday the work remains undone.

More here.

-- Former USC (ha!) coach Rick Majerus apologized for his latest comment about Ashley Judd. While working the Kentucky-Tennessee game last week, Majerus noted that he hoped to see Judd so he wouldn't "have to watch adult videos back at the hotel." For Rick's greatest hits, earlier compiled by this very blogger, click here. Including Rick's previous comment about the Kentucky alum: "I think I was such a pathetic figure in '98, [Ashley Judd] felt sorry for me. She hugged me. That was my sex life for the next two or three years."

-- Minneapolis Star Tribune staff writer and ESPN columnist Jeff Shelman, himself a blogger, pens a wonderful read on the mental workouts Dan Monson has made a regular part of the Golden Gophers' basketball practices. Rick Aberman, wundertherapist.

-- The Florida Times-Union's Alex Abrams tells the story of Roy Williams' hiring at Kansas. Think Hardee's, then read Alex's fun read about coaching trees. (Not quite a must-read, but highly-recommended).

-- Don't look now, but Connecticut's Marcus Williams is developing into, dare I say, one of the NCAA's better point guards. Even as the Huskies struggle, Jim Calhoun has taken notice of Williams' progress -- including his 16-assist outburst against Notre Dame. Of course, and as beat writer Phil Cardis of the Manchester (CT) Journal Inquirer is unlikely to acknowledge, the higher esteem pundits hold for Williams, the lower regard they should have for Connecticut's small and power forwards. Not everyone can be a "PTPer" on a team headed for its worst finish in years.
