Michigan's Conlan Deals with Famous Roommate

Izzo was planning to be Mariucci's guest at the Super Bowl, but the 49ers couldn't get past the NFC championship. No word if Mariucci was planning to be Izzo's guest at the Big Ten title game on Sunday.

Thug life: Do you think playing for Bob Knight is tough? Indiana's William Gladness can probably handle it.

Gladness grew up on the unfriendly streets of West Memphis, Ark. He didn't play organized basketball in high school and dropped out altogether after his junior year. …
