Every few years, a proposal to start a postseason tournament for Ivy League basketball is pushed forward. The coaches recently proposed a four-team tournament, but the key word is "proposed. " If adopted, and there are three layers that the proposal would have to pass, it would be modeled on the lacrosse tournament that was proposed about 2006 and began in 2010. In other words, don't get in line for tickets. The Ivy League athletic directors will meet May 8 to 10. They may talk about the proposal.

In this Eminem-saturated climate, the white emcee is hardly the scorned figure he once was. As hip-hop becomes an increasingly portable culture, racial baggage has never been less of an issue; where you are is becoming more important than how you got there. That only makes more quizzical the shamelessly geeky, Ivy League-educated stylings of MC Paul Barman. Discovered by visionary producer Prince Paul in 1999, the Brown graduate has let his background shape his music, rather than let an affinity for hip-hop dictate his identity.

Things may be a little different at Princeton this season, now that coach Steve Tosches doesn't have a single Garrett to carry the offense. The Tigers were co-champions of the Ivy League last season, thanks in large part to Judd Garrett, their all-time leading rusher and scorer.

In the Ivy League, it is the year of the Tiger. With 16 starters back from a team that barely missed out on a league title last season, Princeton comes into this season as a prohibitive favorite. The Tigers of coach Steve Tosches are fueled by the Ivy's most potent rushing attack in junior Keith Elias and senior Erick Hamilton. Elias rushed for 902 yards and 12 touchdowns last year, and Hamilton added 572 yards and six scores. That duo will run behind an offensive line that returns four of five starters, including 6-foot-3, 240-pound tackle Chris Theiss, a second team all-Ivy pick last year.

They swept into the governor's mansions of Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi in the the late 1970s and the 1980s, promising that with their Ivy League educations they could reform the South and help their states catch up to the rest of the country. Suddenly, only Bill Clinton remains of the trio of young Turks. Louisiana's Buddy Roemer was ousted last month in a primary, and last week, Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus was turned out as well - both victims of recession-wary voters and racial politics.

He is probably the only person ever named a commander of the National Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture who worships the memory of Boston Red Sox second baseman Bobby Doerr. He probably will be the only baseball league president ever to have called the humanities "those activities of the mind that engage the fundamental ligatures that we share, aside from acts of love; that is, language. " In A. Bartlett Giamatti, 48, the departing president of Yale who will become National League president on Jan. 1, baseball is getting an internationally known Renaissance scholar.
