Bonus column: These questions bubble up from watching too much basketball
* How long will it be until our colleges and universities offer Bracketology as a major, right up there alongside Anthropology and Zoology? And will the Principle of Verticality be included? What about Spurtability? * Because referees avoid making tough calls as the game winds down, why don't they, instead, just go back to their dressing room and watch the end of the game on television? And why don't the players, knowing that anything goes, get outfitted in SWAT uniforms at the under-4-minute timeout? * Do players who are heralded as "one and done" in their basketball careers know where the campus library is, and, if so, have they been to it? * Whatever happened to palming the ball? Has it disappeared because today's players have evolved and no longer have palms? Does evolution happen this fast? * Why is it that men can coach women's basketball but women can't coach men's basketball? * Why do some cheerleaders have outfits that reveal navels while others don't? Is it because some universities consider navels attractive while others don't? Is this distinction legal? * If what is known as "spacing" is so important on the basketball court, why don't coaches simply order players to keep at least 5 feet away from each other, even when sitting on the bench? * Do head coaches know the meaning of the word "nepotism," and how many of them have hired their son -- check that, sons -- as assistant coaches? Is it greater than 100 percent? * In broadcast television, why is it that what we might call "eye candy" draws the opportunity/chore of interviewing coaches? Why can't men do it, too? Can't they also be "eye candy?" * Considering the television commercials that boast of the successes of our colleges and universities, is there any problem out there that either hasn't already been solved, or is about to be solved, by today's faculty and students? How far are we from a perfect world? * Because of all the violent rhetoric emanating from today's coaches and players (blood in the water ... knockout punches ... cage matches ... stomp on their throats ... holy war ... and on and on), are they describing basketball? Is this the way John Wooden talked? * How many of today's assistant coaches have been fired as head coaches but rehired by other head coaches? Is this a new form of job tenure for fired coaches? Will it be showing up in the English Department? * Will the college basketball industry ever be able to answer this question: Is it possible to distinguish between a charge and a block? Are there academic papers to be written about this? * Because the pupil-teacher ratio in basketball is, depending on how you count, much less than 10-1, can we expect the faculty to seek out this same sort of sweet deal?
