Potter is reportedly making plans to climb Mr. Everest in the coming months.
Steve Lavin is 12-8 so far in his first year as St. John’s head basketball coach. He’s already enjoyed two 5-game winning streaks.

According to Wikipedia, Steve Lavin is one of only two coaches in the country, along with Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, to lead his team to five national quarterfinals (Sweet 16s) in six years in the NCAA tournament.
He also has great hair. Steve Lavin joined the conversation today. Podcast of the interview after the jump.
