stung?

-- Via the AP: "The University of Oregon has agreed to pay $22 million for a bakery that could be the site of a new basketball arena." For a bakery that could be the site? The Ducks have been looking to build a new arena for years. But now they're paying $22 million for a bakery that could -- or could not -- be the site? Doesn't strike me as a move that would impress "The Donald."

-- Gordon Monson of the Salt Lake Tribune heaps praise upon first-year Utah coach Giacoletti. My response, in three words or less? Not. His. Player(s).

-- Richard Stevens of Albuquerque (NM) Tribune pulls no punches in bursting Ritchie McKay so-called bubble. Unless the Lobos win Mountain West Conference Tournament, don't expect them to go dancing.

-- Sebastian Telfair has changed his story. A day after denying reports he had been offered money to play at Georgia Tech, he and his agent released a statement acknowledging the former higher school star had been "approached by a man who claimed to be associated with the Georgia Tech program and he offered me money." Though he also suggests the offer may have been a joke. Does this story have legs? See Scott's Georgia Tech Sports Blog for all the gory details. (Can you guess, by the way, where Scott got the idea for his scoreboard or template?)
