Sheed And The Truth Get Into Cosplay

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.http://www.indystar.com/article/201001...

•Doesn't anybody want to be No. 1? Kentucky fell to South Carolina, not hours after President Obama thanked them for their Haiti relief efforts. Next up in the top spot is likely to be Kansas. Haven't we been down this road before?

•As part of the traditional Super Bowl bet, Indianapolis's mayor is wagering that Indy staple: shrimp cocktail? I suppose the city hasn't had much in the way of cultural exports since Good Morning Miss Bliss moved to Bayside.

•Kalin Lucas's jumper with 3.5 left pushed MSU to a 1-point win over Michigan. So if Dash comes on a little late today, you'll know why.

•The NCAA has continued to use the William & Mary logo they banned for being offensive in 2006. That's okay though, they've continued to allow CAA basketball, which should have been banned for being offensive.

Bode Miller will enter a national playoff for a spot in tennis's U.S. Open. You know, so he can fail at it, and then tell everyone he didn't really want to do it anyway.
