    Missed the AAU tourney. I was actually focused on a different event that was eventually canceled, and I didn't have time to get in good with the people who were running the replacement, whereas I had gotten an exclusive interview with the organizer of the canceled affair.

    I haven't been by the Finch Center. I need to make time to do so!

    Dude, I don't know WHAT to think about Latavious!

    All I know for sure is. . . nothing! Been digging like a mad man, to no avail. As of late yesterday, no official announcement had been made, and my sources say the same thig you indicated: that Paz had not even spoken directly to LW about it yet. Bad sign. I know if I had news that was going to disappoint someone who had worked VERY hard to secure my services, I would avoid them, too.

    John and I are meeting for lunch, maybe he will have something new for me then. But I'm striking out.

    My man criggsy! How's it going?

    Yeah, I know, it's been forever since I was at Trip's, but I'm planning on changing that. Had a couple of kids to see what you guys think about them. . . apparently, The Kid isn't quite done recruiting for 2009 just yet!!

    I'm still hanging in like a loose tooth, my friend! Hope you're doing well, too?

    See you at Trip's in the next day or so!

    Hi, criggs, how’s it going man?

    I returned to my first true love – baseball – with an inspirational story that I hope you will enjoy:

    Cole, what's up brother?

    I odn't know about king of Memphis sports reporting! lol (Though I do like the sounds of that.)

    But yeah, I love just about all sports. The Masters gig was something that I did not plan. I was asked on Wednesday evening if I would like to cover the Masters and have it linked to CBSSports.com, and DUH, that was a no-brainer - of course I would!

    The tennis collaboration began as a lark when 2 of my favorite writers had a bit of a debate about something or other, and I mused that it would be interesting to get them both to discuss Andy Murray. BOOM! They both respect my skills as a writer and immediately agreed to the project.

    I've got another tennis article in the works, and a baseball piece that I just started.

    Meanwhile, I am getting cozy with folks at the U of M and hiring a couple of interns to help me cover Tiger athletics even more fully. In a few months, we will be breaking scoops on Rivals.

    I woke up one day, and my consulting business was drying up, so I decided to make a living using advice that YOU, among dozens, had given me: writing. I'm getting closer. Create enough stir here and no telling what other paid gigs I can dig up!!

    Hi Cole! I'm recovering a bit, day-by-day.

    But of course we're all still in shock from John Calipari leaving us for Kentucky. I think it’s a good lesson for fans of all college basketball teams:

    What's up Cole, how are you? Well, a little heartbroken (like me) but other than that? lol

    I wrote a very personal, hopefully heart warming account of my coming to grips with that Memphis loss in the NCAA Sweet 16.

    Cole, brother, how are you today?

    I decided to go in a different direction when I wrote this very passionate piece that I think you will enjoy and perhaps relate to:
