Radio free draft from 6-?
Geoff Hobson, Bengals.com
It is 9 a.m. on Draft Day and already Sports Talk Master Lance McAlister is sounding like he is on his third cardiac event of the morning.
"I'm going to be part Mel Kiper, part game show host, part traffic cop," McAlister is spewing a full 10 hours before he reports to work at Paul Brown Stadium to anchor the most intense Bengals draft coverage ever on 700 WLW.
"I've got Mel Kiper's draft book. I've got Pro Football Weekly's draft book. I've got USA Today's. I've got Jerry Jones' Drugstore List," McAlister says. "I'm going to be surrounded by 32 mock drafts."
NCAA football changing as we know it
BCS recommends four-team playoff
The proposed playoff models, not specified by the BCS, likely will include:
• A four-team playoff with the semifinals and final rotated among the existing BCS bowl games (Sugar, Fiesta, Orange and Rose).
• A four-team playoff with the semifinals rotated among the existing BCS bowl games with the final held at a neutral site. The site of the final would be determined by a bid process, similar to how the Super Bowl is awarded.
• A four-team playoff with the semifinals and final held at either the existing BCS bowl game sites or neutral sites, determined by a bid process.

'Marshall Plan' working for the better
Hal McCoy, FS Ohio
"When a closer gets hurt, somebody usually emerges into the closing role," Baker said. "I've seen plenty of set-up guys who couldn't close who were great set-up guys. For some guys it is just the mentality of getting the last three outs — the toughest outs to get."

Popo: Why are Kentucky fans said despised?
I have now read and heard three days of heated discourse about the plans to honor Kentucky. And I am truly baffled by the distaste that some in Greater Cincinnati have for UK basketball and more specifically, its loud, proud and often arrogant fans.
Time for XU to move on
3. Xavier coach Chris Mack won’t say anything more about Mark Lyons But the Musketeers did need to move on from this crew. They excelled to get to the Sweet 16 in Atlanta. But the time was now to sever the relationships from last season’s team. Xavier is too proud, too strong a program to be tainted by that one incident; having a fresh start with the main combatants gone allows for a new era.
