Morning Five: 04.23.10 EditionPosted by rtmsf on April 23rd, 2010
- Today’s comings and goings were actually very limited for the first time in two weeks. The biggest news in this regard was that Arkansas sophomore guard Courtney Fortson, projected as undrafted in June, has signed with an agent and will not return to school next year. We’ll never quite understand the self-deception that guys such as Fortson must enable to convince themselves that they’re ready for the NBA by giving everything up to chase that dream.
- Now that Mark Titus‘ career at the end of the bench at Ohio State is over, he ruminates about what the future holds for his phenomenal blog Club Trillion. We’re sure whatever he does with it, it’ll be hilarious. And Mark, if you ever need a side gig, give us a tweet.
- The state of Arizona’s new proposed anti-immigration legislation (SB 1070) that will potentially open the door to racial profiling of Latinos by law enforcement may threaten to diminish the Phoenix area’s chances at obtaining major sporting events in the future, including the Final Four. Stupid is as stupid does, we guess.
- Sign of the (hard) times or something deeper? The ACC Tournament, long considered the toughest ticket in the conference postseason hierarchy, had trouble selling out its games this year.
- Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson joined the Colbert Report on Wednesday night. Yeah, we know he’s the first bro-in-law, but it’s been two seasons at OSU now, and we’re starting to tire of the same old questions. Although Colbert is funny, as usual.
