John Gilchrist has a new perspective 10 years after starring in ACC tournament -
Ten years ago (ugh...that's depressing in and of itself, since I was there with Maryland's pep band and thus I now feel old), Gilchrist led Marland to their last ACC Tournament title. He returned for a rocky junior year and after gaining a lot of perspective from playing basketball overseas, regrets his decision to leave early. Fascinating read on a former Maryland great.

Tony Romo and Jason Garrett in Duke shirts
I'm a Ravens fans, but I know a lot of y'all out there are big Redskins fans, so I assume this will some how make you hate Duke/Dallas/Tony Romo even more than you previously did prior to learning he and Jason Garrett were Duke fans. And if you're a Dallas fan...well, I don't know what to say.
