Just a brief starter to your day as the basketball crew takes over the site temporarily.

That looks awkward.

We're not going to take much of your time this morning, because in less than an hour we start dropping content live from the Sandwich Islands. Y'all can feel free to express your jealousy at the Large Epsilon.

The Cats are now #11 in both polls, and BracketCat delivered the weekend RPI watch.

FOX's Stewart Mandel opines on the best division in college football, while Matt Brown of Sports on Earth discusses the best division race in college football. They are not the same. Of course, neither holds a candle to the FCS Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, which finished in a five-way tie on Saturday and ended up sending a 7-5 team to the playoffs while two 9-3 teams sit at home.

Over at CBS, Jon Solomon reminds you (among other things) that K-State could actually still win the Big 12 outright, and Dennis Dodd slots the 'Catts 12th in his weekly Power Poll. Behind Mizzouri. Pitchforks, citizens.

David Ubben's Big 12 Power Rankings.

Finally, your benevolent despot's recap of the final crazy weekend over in FCS, and details on how the playoff field shook out.

There's a lot of ink about Bruce Weber's relationship with Matt Painter. Kyle Rowland of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette looks at their connection from the Indiana angle, while it's also a topic for the Star's Kellis Robinett and the Capital-Journal's Kevin Haskin. Haskin also reports on what Weber might be up to with the starting lineup in Maui with possible shakeups in the rotation.

A neat little piece from the Saline Journal on a new book relating the history of Marymount College in Salina, which for a long time had a notable NAIA basketball program before closing its doors back in 1989.
