The Goings On
* Tune in tomorrow at 4pm on CBS for Ohio State at Florida, for no reason other than to watch the 2007 #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft (Greg Oden) versus the guy (Joakim Noah) who would've been the 2006 #1 pick had he bolted for the Association last season. The other eight guys on the floor are fantastic as well. Scratch that, Al Horford isn't playing; make that seven.
* The MSG Brawl between the Nuggets and Knicks is fresh in our mind. May I remind you of this brawl and Ben Wallace's overreaction? The use of the telestrator at the 2-minute mark is priceless. Where's the Czar of the Telestrator when you need him?
* Wichita State finally goes down in Las Vegas to the New Mexico Lobos. PJ Couisnard, the team's second leading scorer (and best player, IMHO), did not play due to a stomach virus. Whoever created this should be shot ... in the face. I like how the Shocker highlight package includes moving screens by Kyle Wilson at 1m15s and 1m35s on three-pointers and a questionable carry by Couisnard. I hope some sick, sad Lobos fans make a video similar to this pile of garbage.
* In the Association, the Wiz kids snapped the Suns' 15-game winning streak. AI debuted for the Nuggets, but in a losing cause. Earlier in the week, he offered his side of the story to Stephen A. Smith in that he did not demand a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers. Spin control by Billy "35 cents on the dollar" King? Quite possibly. Thank you, Bill Simmons.
