Maybe Will Wade to UT? Chaos becomes Turbulence?

Is Brad Stevens still happy in Boston? If not, maybe lure him back into coaching college again? He may not be as fiery as what Orange Nation may be looking for in a new coach, but I think his record speaks for itself.

Jay, I have a second request for the Friday bag. There's talk already that college basketball will discuss more changes for the coming years. What are your thoughts on the following ideas that they have put on the table:

Reducing team timeouts, widening the lane, restricting coaches from calling live-ball timeouts, implementing a hard 10-second rule for crossing half-court (no reset due to a timeout), allowing the NBA continuation on fouls, no scoring on a charge call, reducing the shot clock to 30 or 24.

Just a few more days until the playoffs begin and LeBron will begin his quest for a third (out of a predicted 8) championship with the Heat. Will D-Wade get back to full strength for the entire playoffs? Will the Pacers snap back into their winning ways? Will the Spurs take advantage of total home court and get revenge for what happened last year? Will the Thunder ride on the back of this year's presumed MVP and get back to the Finals?

Lots of questions to be answered as the fun begins this weekend. And be prepared to hear about the "principle of verticality" on more than one occasion when watching the Pacers. Mr. Hibbert is the best in the BID-ness at taking advantage of the rule that allows him to legally make contact with drivers so long as he goes straight up on the play.

Jay, for the Friday bag, what are your round-by-round predictions for the playoffs? And who are your season-award winners? Didn't you pick Durant to win MVP? That is looking really good right now.

And I thought we were finished with referring to those opposed to Obama as racists. Seriously, Hank? Don't you realize that such ignorant comments do more harm than help to race relations?

Hank still has the death threat letters that he got 40 years ago and still reads them from time to time. But why? No doubt that he experienced some bad stuff back then, but at some point he needs to move on from it and stop dwelling in the bad memories of the past.

MT,

The reason the press continues to push stories like this is because homosexuality is not fully accepted in our society (and it will never be). So the media takes advantage of every opportunity that it can to try to convince every last person that homosexual behavior is normal. Otherwise, why does the press even bother especially when it's about an athlete that most people don't know or care about?

Dirk has been a great player for a long time, but he's flown under the radar quite a bit. No question that he is on the starting five of all-time white NBAers. Let's put Stockton at the 1, West at the 2, Bird at the 3, Dirk at the 4, and maybe Bob Cousy at the 5. Thoughts?

Jay, any thoughts on the final play of the Heat/Nets last night? Bron got rejected at the rim, but wanted a foul call. On the replay in slo-mo, Plumlee gets the ball with his fingers before getting LeBron's hand. Played live, it seems like a 50/50 call, and to be honest, I'm surprised LeBron didn't get the benefit of the doubt at home. Now the Nets have swept Miami 4-0 for the year.

I read that Daly will be at his usual spot at Augusta again this year. He smokes 40 cigs a day and is down to 10-12 Diet Cokes (used to be 26-28). It's safe to say that he's still got a ways to go to getting to a healthy lifestyle. Not sure how much more his body can take of crap like this.

Who won the weekend? Why Kevin Durant did, of course. Anytime you can surpass MJ in anything (well, except for gambling losses), you've done something really great. I watched game numbers 40 and 41 of his streak this weekend. He looked exhausted by the end of game 40, but got to the magic number of 25 in the final minute. Last night, he netted 38 in a close loss to the up-and-coming Suns.

A 7 vs. an 8 for the national championship? The selection committee must have goofed badly on the seedings and/or the format is simply allowing way too many at-large teams into the field. In the big conferences, the regular season is nothing more than a glorified preseason at this point.

I remember the segment with Huesman that you're talking about. He took forever to give his answers. Best Win? "Uh, uh..." Worst Loss? "Whew, wow, you guys are tough. Uh, uh..." Best Movie? "It was a Western." Tombstone? "No, not Tombstone. But it was one of those ones that was so good..." So good he forgot the name of it? So much for a rapid-fire segment.

Andrew Luck got all the hype a QB could get, but he's one of the few that actually deserved all of it. And Jake Locker is definitely not better than Luck is.

Everytime I go to the lake, I'm resigned to the fact that I could be swimming in a lot people's No. 1. But now I'll have to be on the lookout for any deuces floating around too.

I'm thinking that the guy who made the Sandusky/Grantham comment is also the same guy who called in on another day and ripped Johnny Football and other mobile QBs trying to make it in the NFL. While I agreed with his overall premise, dude got real defensive about it. Almost sounded like he was ready to come to blows over it.

Jay, I love the radio show when I'm able to get off of work in time to catch at least a couple of the segments. Can you give us a list or Rushmore of the craziest things that you've heard so far on the show? Anything from idiotic comments from callers, to bad predictions, to wild/funny stories.

The one that takes the cake though is what I heard one caller say a couple of weeks ago:

"I'd let Jerry Sandusky watch my kids before I let Todd Grantham coach my football team."

What is the world coming to? Incredible.
