Yes, those are bracket shorts. Yes, you need to buy me a pair. (Via)

Our home base apparently doesn't know how to properly handle the dead. // This is painstakingly bittersweet. // Massive bracket of the greatest video games ever. // Ancient giant penguins discovered. // This was my favorite read from Tuesday ...

★ Brackets. Everywhere. As you can see, with the shorts there.

★ It's not yet known where the 2012 Carrier Classic will take place, but we do know San Diego is out, with a possible return there in 2013.

This Grantland post on the Big 5 is OK, but the real reason you need to check it out is due to Brandon Lilly's utter dismissal of Drexel. Then you read the comments.

★ Corey Schmidt does dedicated work toward understanding and analyzing college basketball better. If you're at all interested in the Summit League, give it a click and consider taking him up on his offer.

★ Jim Larranaga is no longer coaching at a small school, so now he is down-talking how good they are this season.

★ Read what it's like to be a Northwestern fan this week.

★ Any ideal guesses as to where Jared Swopshire is going to transfer to?

★ I very much enjoy the fact we still have one more year to enjoy Matthew Dellevedova playing college basketball.

★ Delly, by the way, is your WCC Player of the Year.

★ A different look at the remaining bubble battles left on the calendar.

★ Should Drexel make it into the tournament, here's more perspective on the team as it heads into the CAAs.

★ The best plays in Creighton basketball this year.

★ Good on Wyoming to put together its first 20-win season in nine years.

♬ I've been teased for primarily showing rock and indie-rock videos here, but that's definitely not the case. It's more that than most others, but there's been a bountiful selection of songs from outside those genres. I'm not a huge rap guy, but always get a kick out of talking to people who say they love Jay-Z ... then can't name a track off "Reasonable Doubt."
