New York Gossip: Dolan to sell Liberty
The man is a business idiot, that’s universally known. This is just the latest example. I mean, think about it: You’re trying to sell season tickets for a team that has no GM or coach and no immediate prospect of success on the court…and now you’re muttering about dumping or moving the team. Well, THAT’s an attractive deal, ain’t it?
Merry friggin’ Christmas, you son-with-a-silver-spoon-up-your-*$(#&. Putz.

From Doug: Parity abounds among women’s hoops elite
So far this season Top 25 teams have lost 15 games to unranked opponents which is up 50 percent from last season, but still short of the 23 times it happened to this point in the season two years ago according to STATS.
With all the upsets so far, women’s basketball analyst Debbie Antonelli sees parity in the game. She said Connecticut’s early loss opened the eyes of fans and other programs that this season could be something other than a Huskies’ runaway.
“That gave everyone in women’s basketball hope,” Antonelli said.
Yup, Michelle, it’s been A season full of surprises — so far
A little taste of the unexpected can be refreshing, and this women’s basketball season has already had its share of surprises. Here is a list of the most unexpected developments over the first month of 2014-15:
Who’s on top?
Someone other than Connecticut is occupying the No. 1 spot in the national rankings. More than a month has passed since Stanford knocked off the Huskies at Maples Pavilion, stunning the country and turning everything we thought we knew about this season on its ear in the first week.

Tennessee v. Stanford at 1pm EST. This could get ugly. Both teams are coming off stunning losses. The Vols got Shocked and Stanford got Snakebit (why don’t they listen to my warnings?). The Cardinal loss to Chattanooga on Wednesday was its first loss to an unranked nonconference opponent in the regular season since 2000.
