More on college hoops:

• Glad I lived long enough to read Sid Hartman quoting a player branded "Jelly Fam" and stating Gophers basketball "is going to be lit."

• Adidas signed a $160 million contract extension with Lousiville, and also hired athletic director Tom Jurich's daughter Haley Marie, 26, as "brand communication manager." Tom's now gone, with coach Rick Pitino.

• Prediction: The Gophers will win the Big Ten regular season, then become the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16. It has to happen sometime; why not us?
