Expansion Talks continue to go on for the Big 10. There's committees, reports, tryouts, hazing rituals, etc. to go through. The latest update is that the Big 10 won't make any offers at least through early June. The latest rumors have UConn being nixed from the list due to their academic shortcomings.
The Wizards Win the John Walls Sweepstakes - The Washington Wizards won the NBA lottery and will select first. While there is some uncertainity it seems inevitable that the Wizard select Kentucky' John Walls with the #1 pick. I think Walls is an excellent case of performance v. potential. Walls' college performance was far shakier than is normally acknowledged. He was a turnover machine and a poor shooter. That said his athleticism is thought to show off potential (i.e. at worst case he'll be Derick Rose). Personally , I think Walls is a little over-hyped but that's just me.
Sometimes danger lurks in the background...Dustin Byfuglien - Great Name, Unlikely Star - The star of the Chicago Blackhawks sweep of the Sharks was Dustin Byfuglien. Byfuglien, whose name I still can't pronounce, had scored 1 goal in 27 previous games prior to Game 3 in the Canucks series. He then proceeded to score 5 goals in 5 games of which 3 of them were arguably game winners. I believe this is the first time a Byfuglien has led the Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup Final but I'll double check.
Randomly Cool Story is the story of Kwaku Dansu, a college player with zero tackles and three years of playing football. Yet, he's currently with the Browns with a chance to make the team. Good luck Kwaku!
