    Louisville used to do their basketball and football media guides as hardcovers too.

    I think Iowa State had a hardcover, too.

    Here's a question: How many of the same media guides do you get in the office?

    In the past two weeks, we've received five SEC media guides, four of them sent to writers who haven't worked here in the past four years. I like being able to have one at home and one for the office, but it seems like conferences and schools are wasting a lot of money by not updating their mailing lists every year or two.

    And Hoops, nicely played.

    The only hardcovers Iowa State does is for men's and women's basketball. It's like a high school yearbook.

    By the way, at Big Ten media days there was a stack of Champs Sports Bowl travel kits. Inside was a pair of Champs Sports Bowl/Capital One Bowl boxer shorts.

    Hmmmm. Another league had those kits at media day, though I never noticed shorts. Maybe a league official loaded up!

    I saw an adidas full-page Reggie Bush ad this year in the media guide of the school I cover. I guess I've seen a few local ads in guides before but never something like this.

    The ACC had those travel kits, too..... they were empty.
    Of course, we did get cigars from the Orange Bowl, so that kinda made up for it.

    Cigars? I would rather have cigars than boxers.

    Boxers? Were they one size fits all? Wow.
    Is there any chance, you veterans of media guides, that the NCAA or whomever came up with the current plan will rescind it or alter it in the near future? Have there been any discussions? And don't most still have the recruit-oriented pages in there anyway?

    I've heard that the respective answers are no and yes.

    It's all about $$$. Enough schools kick off enough cash, and it will change again.
