- Golson Out in South Bend: Word quickly spread over the weekend of the sudden suspension of quarterback Everett Golson at Notre Dame due to "poor academic judgment." What kind of effect will this have on the Irish this season, and who can we expect to step up under center for coach Brian Kelly? Hear our take.

- More Bad Press For Rutgers: Less than two months removed from the termination of both their men's head basketball coach and athletic director, Rutgers University is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. This time, over reports that their newly hired AD, Julie Hermann, may have verbally abused her players during her coaching days at Tennessee. How did this information manage to slip through the cracks during the school's interview process, and can anything be done at this point to rectify the situation? We'll tell you.

- NBA Playoff Talk: One matchup in the conference finals has played out as expected, with the Heat and Pacers going toe-to-toe in a highly-competitive physical affair; while the other is already over, with the Spurs making short work of the upstart Grizzlies in a 4-game sweep. We break down the keys for the remainder of the Miami-Indiana series, and explore how San Antonio managed to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals for the fifth time in franchise history.


We discuss Phil Jackson's comments to Time Magazine in regards to what one player he would take if he were starting a team, the hiring of Jeff Hornacek as coach of the Phoenix Suns, and Don Mattingly's future with the Los Angeles Dodgers!

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
