Wednesday Morning Dump

We get today rolling with a bunch of links on Phil Martelli being a jackass.

- Phil Martelli is acting like a jerk, but the problem is that the NCAA has allowed him to act like this. Gregg Doyel thinks that we need to hear the whole story first. The problem with that is that Martelli, the university and the NCAA won't and aren't going to tell it. Even if Martelli is right, this maneuver isn't exactly smart. I wonder if Martelli realizes that what he's doing is a complete embarrassment to the university. Everybody Hates Phil. Yeah Eamonn, I'm not sure what he's doing either.

- Remember a couple months back when we all blasted UConn and Jim Calhoun for taking a scholarship away from Michael Bradley and giving it to potential one-and-doner Andre Drummond? Well apparently Drummond gave the scholarship back and is actually a walk-on. Wait, why have they waited this long to tell us?
