My various inboxes be filling up with news of Lance Zierlein's twitter stream which makes for some entertaining reading this late a.m.

NCAA on the prowl:

If one of my sources are correct, Yahoo will have a piece with Will Lyles that will put a couple of colleges in harm's way regarding NCAAless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

@LanceZierlein I've received zero advance warning about any Longhorn related issues with a Yahoo investigation. We would know.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Zierlein goes on to say that the source is very close to Lyles.

@mikellyoung Source is very close to Lyles, it will probably be out in next three days and Yahoo is writing the piece.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

Perhaps it's Will's good friend, "Lefty"?

Then this:

As i said before, yahoo article with Lyles may bring "unwanted attention" to schools but might not become anything more than thatless than a minute ago via Twittelator Favorite Retweet Reply

So now we're not in harm's way with the NCAA but Will Lyles is going to say bad things about us? OK.

Either way, we're big fans of Yahoo and Dan Wetzel and Charles Robinson, both of whom are worth a follow.

I can't decide if I am tired of hearing about Will Lyles or it's still sort of amusing. What do you think?
