Locals In the Big Dance

Colleague Preston Williams, doing research for this week's Varsity Letter, has a pretty cool chart in today's paper, listing all of the local players participating in this week's NCAA Division I basketball tournaments.

Pryor Says He's a Buckeye

Wow, shocking news here. Terrelle Pryor says he will grace Ohio State with his presence.

Two Top Backs on One Team

Just got off the phone with Good Counsel football coach Bob Milloy, who, naturally, called me wondering how he could buy NCAA tournament tickets for this weekend at Verizon Center, since his wife and daughter are Purdue alums. (Best answer: Call the Purdue ticket office and hope it has some...
