College Hoops: My beloved Wisconsin Badgers got beat by North Carolina last night, 60-57.  It’s not really upsetting, because Wisconsin is ranked 7th in the nation, despite having some pretty low rankings (139th in PPG, 89th in rebounds, 62nd in FG%, and 51st in assists). And if I put my bias aside, the Tarheels are one of my favorite NCAA hoops teams. Is anyone else surprised by Wisconsin’s sports teams this year?

Cooperstown: The Hall of Fame ballot has been released. Any thoughts on the names included?

Say No to Outfielders: David DeJesus was not a guy I had in mind for the Cubs. Sure, he’s a lefty, but he’s also an outfielder who is coming off a career-low season. Not exactly my idea of a necessary acquisition. Isn’t pitching our biggest need? Why yes, yes it is.
