crazy, I'm so (not) into you...

-- Jerry Brown of the East Valley (AZ) Tribune pens the lead of the day. How very true.

Forget about RPI ratings, conference projections and all other NCAA tournamentrelated trigonometry. If Arizona State plays basketball games like this down the stretch -- allowing teams to score at will and getting beat like a drum down the court --- there is no fuzzy math available to save them.

-- Jack Wilkinson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has today's must-read. Previewing March Madness and reviewing the college basketball season to date, Wilkinson finds five reasons why the ACC may not be nation's best league, nominates players of the year from each conference, suggests both Arizona (!) and Boston College may be worthy of No. 1 seeds, and argues Buzz Peterson (Tennessee) and Rod Barnes (Mississippi) are on the hot seat.

-- The Boston Globe's Mark Blaudschun heralds (no pun intended) Boston University men's basketball first game at the all-new Agganis Arena. Think facilities don't matter? Think again. The arena has Blaudschun and Terriers coach Dennis Wolff pondering a BU move to the Atlantic 10.

-- The Washington Times' Rick Snider gets J.J. Redick on record as preferring road games to home matches at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Is he...crazy? More importantly, Snider interviews Blogger Jeremy Gold of Turtle Soup.
