So what exactly are we to make of this deli drama brewing at Morgan State? Week 1 of ham sandwich-gate has turned into a thinly cut controversy, packed between slices of absurdity and embarrassment, with extra anger and a side of speculation.

And for the life of me, I can't figure out why Morgan State men's basketball coach Todd Bozeman would even put himself in such a situation - over a dinner order, mind you - and especially right now. As a colleague astutely asked: "Does he have a death wish?"
