I'll be chatting at 1 p.m. today. There's a lot to discuss. We're coming into my favorite time of year, and it'll be even more interesting if the Sabres make the playoffs. So who would you like them to play in the first round? Could they hang with the Penguins? Talk to you at 1.

I'll be chatting at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday from my house. Plenty to talk about, so I could see going for two hours. I'm thinking of putting a bounty out on certain knucklehead chatters. Talk to you tomorrow.

Check back to the Sully on Sports blog and BuffaloNews.com for a live chat with The News' senior sports columnist at 2:30 p.m. Here are his thoughts on the signing, shortly after it went down:

Later this month will mark the 20th anniversary of Christian Laettner's last-second shot that lifted Duke over Kentucky and into the Final Four. Evidently, some of the Angola native's ventures into the investment world haven't been on the mark. According to a Wall Street Journal report, Laettner and his former Duke teammate, Brian Davis, could owe up to $30 million in unpaid loans. Many were to sports celebrities, including Buffalo Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman. Here's the link to the WSJ story:

I'll be doing a chat from my bed at 1 p.m. today. Recovery from hip replacement is going quite well, though I won't be able to drive for awhile. Still, I'm fragile, so be kind. Talk to you at 1.

Growing up in the Sixties, I was a big fan of the TV show "Hogan's Heroes." I was especially fond of Sgt. Schultz, the bumbling German prison guard who was famous for turning his head when the American POWs were up to one of their usual schemes. Invariably, Schultz would say "I know nothing! I see nothing! I hear nothing!"
Now I'm getting this image of Jim Boeheim in a prison guard's outfit. Hey, put on some weight and he'd be a pretty good Schultz. The long-time Syracuse basketball coach has once again assumed his Sgt. Schultz stance, asserting that he's totally clueless about the latest scandal in his program.
According to a Yahoo!Sports investigation, the Orange hoop program failed to live up to its own drug policy over a 10-year period. According to the report, Boeheim used ineligible players during that time. Evidently, Syracuse self-reported the violations. The NCAA has begun an investigation.
When asked about the report, Boeheim said "I don't know anything about it." That's difficult to believe. It's been reported that as part of the drug policy, the coach had to be informed of any violations.
Of course, Boeheim is well-practiced in shrugging his shoulders and claiming ignorance. When accusations surfaced last fall about Bernie Fine's alleged abuse of a ballboy, Boeheim called it lies and said the story had "absolutely no valildity." That was before a taped recording of Fine's wife revealed that Boeheim's long-time assistant indeed had issues.
Twenty years ago, a newspaper investigation revealed violations in the SU program. The Orange went on probation as a result. But Boeheim said he had no idea his players had been receiving gifts and improper benefits. A school investigation supported that contention.
Boeheim is a great coach. He's also a great evader of responsibility. He runs a loose ship and wins games. Then he stands there with an aggrieved, innocent look on his face, palms upraised, when scandal strikes. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. All the way to the Hall of Fame.
