    Maybe outing myself, but I cover UConn. I was in Louisville and at Indiana when he was there. He was a topic of conversation, but conversation did not stop in the rooms. That's a bit of self-important blather.

    A while prior to the Indiana game, I was asked to write something about Calhoun's charity work. He does a lot of it, as most coaches do, around the holidays. It was a typical holiday fluff piece. At Indiana, Doyel sidles up to me without my knowing and says, "He's not a great man." I had no idea what the fuck he was talking about. It registered about an hour later.

    I never wrote that Calhoun was a great man. Gregg has some hard-on for Calhoun, which puts him in the majority. I have no problems with Calhoun, aside from the occasional run-in that comes from being a beat guy. For some reason, Gregg decided to kick me in the nuts. Fine.

    I've known Gregg for a while and I like him personally. I actually consider him a friend. Not a big fan of the nasty tones he takes in his writing. It comes off as childish to me, but it works for him. I certainly think his obvious talent (at least to me) could often be put to better use.

    "Chillax" is the combination of chill and relax. It's a stupid word invented by hip-hop or pop artists trying to sound cool. And, of course, it sounds even lamer when some fake tough-guy tries to use it.

    Chillax is, IIRC, the product of some Radio Disney DJ, Don Crabtree or something like that.

    And I happen to like the word, especially when my 4-year-old uses it on her 6-year-old sister.

    Silver's Colts feature this week had him sitting at a steakhouse with the Indianapolis Colts. It's pathological. He can't help himself.

    I've worked with Gregg, and he's a good guy ... when he hasn't lost his mind.

    Is that your way of saying he's never a good guy?

    From my limited dealings with Doyel, I always thought he was a good guy...
