a dim bulb

-- Tickets for the Boise bracket of the NCAA men's basketball tournament will hit the mail this week.

-- Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer speaks to Andy Kennedy, Cincinnati's associate head coach, about the inexact science of recruiting. The first quality Kennedy looks for in a player? Physical toughness. For Cincinnati? Really? This blogger's not surprised.

-- Joe Rexrode of the Lansing (MI) State Journal previews the great (green &) white hope to take down Illinois. Digger Phelphs suggests Michigan State play the 1-3-1 zone against the Fighting Illini....Anybody wondering why Phelphs is no longer a head coach? Anybody?

-- Say it ain't so! But it is. Todd Schulz, also of the venerable Lansing paper, argues MSU needs an upset victory over Illinois to restore the Spartans' once-bright national star, now dimmed to a "A really bright 30 seconds." Four years removed from the Final Four, Tom Izzo's club is off the pedestal on which it once stood.
