Slammin' Sam on Sports Media Links Edition

Today feels like a links day to me, so that’s precisely what I’m going to do. Can you remember the last time the mainstream media let a so-called big story run its natural course instead of beating it to death? Those days seem far gone to me, and I think it’s too bad, but oh well. The Tracy McGrady coverage, the Colts’ decisions and the Mike Leach saga fit the bill.

Speaking of Leach, the Texas Tech football coach (for now) is unique and unapologetic. Looks like he had this suspension coming to him, writes Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News.

But wait, we’re far from done with the eyebrow-raising personalities. I hadn’t read Dan LeBatard for a while, so this is a little dated, but Dennis Rodman is timeless. Here’s an update on “The Worm.”

Moving on, Tracy McGrady had a chance to be special, but he came up short in Houston, blogs Jonathan Feigen for the Chronicle.

Coming in fourth in today’s links but first on the minds of many, nine-year Indy Star veteran Bob Kravitz shares his readers’ disappointment about the Colts fall from perfection, but the team’s ultimate responsibility is to the long term. Further, Kravitz applauds Manning for not going Favre during the team’s collapse.

Last, for all you Illini fans, news this afternoon comes that Alex Legion is waving bye-bye to the Orange and Blue.

Note that Slammin’ Sam on Sports Media will return on Tuesday. Thanks for reading.

Happy New Year! Here’s to bigger and better things in 2010. One last thing before I go … On heels of Steve and Nate's posts on the decade that was in PGA Golf and Illinois basketball, here is a look back at some Chicago sports Top 10s. Enjoy!
