Grip it and rip it, baby.
-- CBS's Dennis Dodd caught up with Harrison Beck, who is on his way to D-II North Alabama to play for Terry (and Jeff) Bowden:
"I'm as confident as ever. I don't care what some chemistry student on PackPride.com is going to say about me. People romanticize football. It has a bigger meaning to them than it actually is. I put in hard work and I'm dedicated to it. I'm not concerned with how other people (perceive me). I'm all about gripping and ripping it. I enjoy playing. I like playing the game. I don't care about statistics."
-- ESPN's story about the Krispy Kreme Challenge can be found here. Pretty good effort by Greg Garber considering he ran the thing in his suit.
-- Via Dr. Saturday comes news that David Cutcliffe is Twittering. I've learned that Duke competes to the max every day and also that Coach Cut likes exclamation points. Elsewhere, Pete Carroll is eschewing his coaching responsibilities in favor of a campaign to get Will Ferrell to join Twitter. Carroll tried to enlist Shaq's help earlier this afternoon. I freaking love the internet.
-- Sweet 16 viewer's guide. I think Duke's run ends tonight in what should be an entertaining game. Villanova has averaged 1.12 points per possession since February 1st, while Duke's D has been fading down the stretch.
