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.
•Syracuse...Dead! Villanova...Dead! PItt...Dead! Niedermayer...Dead! West Virginia survived, though it took a Da'Sean Butler three at the buzzer to do it. If nobody wants that automatic bid, maybe we should have just given it to DePaul.
•Tiger Woods is coming back, but when? At Bay Hill? At Augusta? He should play up the drama. This totally reminds me of that time Yokozuna put Undertaker in the casket, and he was gone for six months. Maybe it'll be an impostor in a red Nike shirt, and the real Tiger Woods will have to beat him in match play.
•The courtship of LaDainian Tomlinson continues, as he moves on from the Vikings to the Jets. Due to the "Final 8" rule, neither team can pay him huge money. Has he tried Oakland? I hear Al Davis is enamored with his 40-yard time.
•Chris Chelios made his season debut for Atlanta, in a 2-1 loss. To make it feel like a minor league game in order to ease him in, they played it in a half-empty arena in Columbus, Ohio.
•Agent Six? Gilbert Arenas has filed the paperwork to change his uniform number from zero to six, effective next season. Either he's a big LeBron fan, or it's a not-so-subtle way of telling fellow No. 6 Mike Miller to get out of town.
