The Marquette Tribune did an interesting article on what it takes to be a walk-on for the basketball team. It was so well done that it spawned a post on ESPN.com's College Basketball Nation blog.

CBS is trying something new this season with March Madness games. Instead of focusing on CBS covering games and showing regional coverage, they have spread the games out on their cadre of networks (CSB, TBS, TNT, truTV), so that every game will be televised. Unfortunately, both Marquette and Wisconsin's games are scheduled to air on truTV (formerly Court TV). The Journal-Sentinel is reporting th...
