Rick Majerus, the first-year basketball coach at Saint Louis University who built his reputation by winning three out of every four games in 15 seasons at Utah and with one-liners that poked fun at his considerable girth, is in hot water with the Catholic Church. Or at least an archbishop. We seem to be going through a period of ill-chosen words in the sports world. Going back a bit, there was radio talker Don Imus' unconscionable reference to the Rutgers women's basketball team (he was fired)

I'm really glad I don't date Jessica Simpson. Such heresy would never have crossed these lips not long ago, but I'm starting to think there just might be too many obstacles in the way. This became clear last week when OK! magazine reported that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had burned the pop tart by dumping her after his team's early exit from the NFL playoffs. The next day, however, TMZ.com reported that the couple was still together and presumably happy. How could a relationship possibly survive when the public is constantly checking the temperature and forecasting its future?

Observations, salutations and condemnations near the end of the college basketball season:* Once upon a time, Pat O'Brien was refreshing, clever and polished. At some point, however, he became trite, unctuous and, well, slick. What's the difference, you ask, between polished and slick? That's hard to say, except O'Brien, with his cutesy phrases, pseudo-El Lay hipness, and just all-around, well, slickness, has moved from one to the other, and that's a shame.* The best announcer pairing of the tournament was Verne Lundquist and Quinn Buckner.

The 2005-06 Florida State basketball media guide includes a photo of two coaches who have taken time off from the game. Leonard Hamilton, who squirmed through an idle year after losing the Washington Wizards' job in 2001, is in command as he dissects a Seminoles win. The man holding the microphone looks forlorn, seeming to yearn for a team of his own to talk about. Bobby Cremins, who left Georgia Tech with a textbook case of burnout and spent six seasons doing television commentary, finally got his wish last month, when he was hired by the College of Charleston.
