In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ The NBA will honor an interim coach for his wins, but won’t officially recognize those wins.

▪ It’s not about the money for Zack Greinke, it’s about the dry heat.

▪ No team can end another team’s undefeated season like Michigan State.

▪ George Mikan’s rookie card is worth more than his NBA career earnings.

▪ The NCAA announces its 40-bowl game lineup, and yes, there will be a bowl game played in your backyard sooner rather than later.
