Time's up. Try Notre Dame, UCLA, and, for at least this week, THE Ohio State University. Read the details here.

I'm not kidding myself. Heading into Chapel Hill tonight without Greg Oden doesn't leave much room for long-term optimism, but I'm going to kick back and enjoy the history . . . at least until 9:00 tonight.

That didn't last long!

If UCLA can pull something off, then the other ONE only has five weeks left too.

In the oft-repeated words of a certain ubiquitous seminary president, "I shouldn't allow myself to be dragged into this, but . . ." after watching last night's game, I'm feeling pretty confident that a simultaneous #1 will return by February. I'm far more concerned about Oden's wrist than about who's wearing the visitor jerseys on January 8th.

I know I need to lose some weight, but ubiquitous seems a little harsh.

Yeah, I'm going to withdraw my application for prophet status.
