grounded?

-- As usual, Dick Jerardi's column in the Philadelphia Inquirer is Wednesday's must-read.

-- A new name for the Indiana rumor mill: Timberwolves assistant Randy Wittman...Will ESPN hire Mike Davis if Indiana lets him go at season's end?

-- Michael Rand of the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes up the NCAA's decision to create a subcommittee on female athletics that will consider whether women's college basketball teams can continue to use male players in practice. My sense is to support the status quo, if only to (continue to) improve the quality of women's basketball.

-- CBS SportsLine's Gregg Doyel expects pollsters to "drop Boston College like a broken elevator." But just as the mainstream media had come to overrate Al Skinner's club, so too will they soon underappreciate their 20 (and counting) accomplishments. For my part, I'll be keeping an eye on Jeff Shelman's ballot. Here's guessing the Minneapolis Star Tribune beat writer and ESPN columnist keeps the Eagles in his Top 10.

-- John Calipari and Rick Pitino are at it again. Advantage Pitino. His Cardinals have 20 wins to the Tigers' 13.
