  • Yikes. Details on the Vince Faison thing:
    • When police found him, he was in his truck,
    • in the McDonald's drive-thru,
    • at around 3:45 a.m.,
    • engine in gear,
    • foot on the brake, and
    • passed out with a BAC of .22.

    It took police raising and dropping his hand three times to wake him up. State penalty? Forty-eight hours in a 6x9, a $350 fine and court costs, and loss of license for one year. Fulmer's penalty? Two games. Yes, brothers in the blogosphere, he's a walk on, but he's a 27-year-old former pro baseball player, Kelly Washington-ish walk-on, so The Papa's punishment isn't as timid as it might seem.

    Still, sheesh.

  • Tennessee's announced that they're going to retire Ernie Grunfeld's number during halftime of the Kentucky game on March 2. Mike Hamilton knows what he's doing.
