Quick Hits

- Bristol Palin and the father of her child, Levi Johnston, have officially broken up, according to the Associated Press.
- Virgin Records is closing its U.S. locations, including the store here in San Francisco (where I'm currently at on business travel.)
- Tomorrow's Kansas-Baylor game will feature an interesting matchup of guards Sherron Collins and Curtis Jerrells. As a reminder, Collins got in Jerrell's head during the teams' first meeting in Waco, which the Jayhawks won 75-65. In that game, Jerrells went 0-fer from the field (0-7) and scored just 4 points compared to Collins' 17 points and 6 assists. That game was also Baylor's fourth straight loss in a six-loss skid. Kansas and Baylor were picked to tie for third in the pre-season Big 12 balloting. The Jayhawks ended up winning the league and Baylor finished as the 9th seed entering the conference post-season tournament.
- A Boston-based company, Outside the Classroom, released findings on a study which involved 30,000 first-year students on 76 U.S. college campuses. The sobering news--students who drink spend 10.2 hours a week using alcohol. The next activity, studying, garnered 8.4 hours per week followed by exercising with 5 hours per week. This conclusion is even more sobering considering the news of this past week of the death of a student at the University of Kansas who is suspected of binge drinking.
