Chiefs discover new way to fail
Kansas City Star
The Chiefs’ best game of the year ended in the most appropriate way possible: a turnover and a loss. Now comes the part where they push and pull about what it means. Everything up to the jobs of the head coach and general manager may hang in the balance.
Butler-Xavier takes on new meaning, intensity
The distasteful part of Butler-Xavier is the ugliness that has resulted.
When the Bulldogs lost at Xavier 51-49 two years ago, Butler's Matt Howard said it was the most hostile environment in which he had ever played. When a clock malfunction caused controversy in Butler's 69-68 victory in 2009, a Xavier player ripped a water fountain out of the wall at Hinkle.
The rivalry has spilled into Twitter. A Xavier fan or fans have created accounts with similar handles for the Butler mascots with vulgar and venomous posts about Butler. Butler has authentic accounts for its bulldog mascots @ButlerBlue2 and @ButlerBlue3.

No fans should be happier today than those in Cincinnati, Louisville, Boise and the rest of the Big East. The conference might not be one of the cool kids any longer, but it still has an invite to the party.

Hamilton blazing a trail
The Arizona Republic
The stories about Billy Hamilton's speed border on urban legend. Each tale seems to surpass the one before it in absurdity, which can make it difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.
Hamilton can score from second on a sacrifice fly. He once made a running catch on the warning track -- while playing shortstop. He beat Chuck Norris in a footrace and a fistfight.
All right, that last part isn't true. But the other two did happen, and on the baseball field, at least, nothing is out of the realm of possibility for Hamilton, a Cincinnati Reds prospect playing for the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona Fall League.

Kilpatrick was named a first team All-BIG EAST Conference selection by the league’s coaches in October.
In late February, the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors will compile a mid-season team of the top 30 players in the nation. Then in March, the Naismith Trophy voting academy will narrow the list to the four finalists.
