If you're already having college baskeball withdrawals you can find an interesting read at espn.com. Former Iowa State player (and now author) Paul Shirley offers a first-person essay about the role of the sports media in college basketball. It's a somewhat cynical look at how the media focus too much on the entertainment and profit aspects of the game to care what happens on the court. Although Shirley softens a bit at the end, it's still a fairly strong condemnation of the media and a good example of why such mistrust exists between athletes and reporters.
