    ESPN By Myron Medcalf

    "So yes, the same Iowa State squad that lost at Drake Nov. 15 looks like an NCAA tournament team right now -- no matter what my colleague Doug Gottlieb might tweet."

    Gottlieb went from a guy who had a strong Big12 bias to a guy who just comes off as a **** every chance he gets. Not sure why, but it seems like he just likes rubbing people the wrong way.

    Gottlieb has no clue. I don't understand the love fest for him.

    If I were Gottlieb, I'd be playing Big 12 buddies with Freddy right soon.

    Why should you fire Bill Self?

    Riddle
    There was a troll who lived under a bridge. The only way to get across to the other side was to take the bridge. It takes you one minute to cross the bridge even if you run. The troll sleeps for 30 seconds under the bridge. When you walk half way across the bridge, (which would take you 30 seconds), the troll wakes up and pushes you back to where you started. How do you get across the bridge?

    Personally, I generally agree with Gotlieb and don't agree with the majority.
    I also love listening the the jim rome show and most people don't like him.
    I love it when people have an opinion and are not afraid to speak their mind.

    I just found the answer but it doesn't comply with the rules of the riddle. The troll pushes you back to where you started, not to where he thinks you started.

    Thanks to google, I am good at riddles.

    Answer: When you get halfway, you turn around before the troll comes up and he pushes you to the other end because he thinks you came from that side.
