THEY SAID WHAT?
“We got our tail kicked. … We’ll have a positive out of it someway.” — Kentucky hoops coach Billy Gillispie after a 41-point loss at Vanderbilt on Tuesday
LOCAL POWER RANKINGS
1. Jim Zorn
The out-of-nowhere choice to coach the Redskins, his honeymoon period will be interesting: possibly short because he was the surprise hire or lengthy because fans will blame The Danny for any struggles.
No. 0 is still recovering from knee surgery, but as losses mount (eight straight entering last night), does shutting Arenas down instead of having him back for a first-round playoff exit make more sense?
4. Chad Johnson
If the Redskins trade for this superstar receiver/occasional problem and give him a gigantic contract, it officially will signal a return of the pre-Coach Joe days when anything went in terms of personnel.
5. Roy McCauley
Most have never heard of him, but he’s the biggest local connection to Sunday’s Daytona 500. The Davidsonville, Md., native (about 15 miles southwest of Annapolis) is Ryan Newman’s crew chief.
