— Anthony Davis’ high school basketball coach told Larry Vaught that we’re not seeing Davis’ total game yet. “He has not shown half of his talent yet,” Cortez Hale said. “Right now all he is doing is blocking shots, dunking and playing defense. He is not shooting a lot and penetrating with the ball. There is a lot more coming from Anthony Davis. It’s not a surprise to see what he’s already done. That’s how good he is.” That’s almost scary. No, that is scary. If Anthony Davis starts knocking down jump shots and penetrating consistently, everyone else just needs to go on home.

I didn’t watch it, but I heard it wasn’t very good until the very end.
— Jerry Sandusky was arrested again today on sexual abuse charges from two new accusers. Just give him the chair already.

— And your Dakich podcast…
