The news accounts, now 70 years old, offer only fragments of the "ghastly drama" that surrounded the marriage of Mary Kenan Flagler Bingham, "the richest woman in America." She was the widow of Standard Oil co-founder Henry Flagler and her estate was worth between $60 million and $100 million. Her bridegroom was Judge Robert Worth Bingham, a Kentucky lawyer without independent means. Their wedding in 1916 made headlines, even in New York. And so did her mysterious death eight months later.

Louisville, even though it was undefeated and ranked No. 8, was always going to be a long shot to win this year's college football national title. The Cardinals simply did not have the schedule strength to keep up with the best teams from the power conferences. The Jeff Sagarin ratings, one of the six computer systems used in the BCS formula, had Louisville ranked No. 125 in strength of schedule this week. Louisville's only chance was to go undefeated and then pray all the other top schools lost once, or maybe twice.

Dwight Howard remembers the trauma of the broken leg he sustained after dunking in a game as a teenager.

" Ware sustained a compound fracture of his right tibia in Louisville's 85-63 victory over Duke.

Twitter, Facebook, YouTube ... they're all great, aren't they? Anything that just happens to be on your mind, you can just put it out there for all to see. Unless you happen to be, say, a female tennis player at the University of Louisville who wants to profess her love for Track 5 ofGuns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction" on Facebook. Or a Cardinals golfer who wants tweet about the goings-on with the Gambia National Olympic Committee but needed to use the acronym to save character space.

Any given season can drive you nuts, but this one has shuttle-bused me to an assortment pack of walnuts and cashews. We're two weeks from Thanksgiving and still no one has satisfactorily explained how USC scored only seven points against Washington State on Sept. 7. I've asked mailmen, real estate agents and dog-walkers, but all they do is shrug. Two missionaries at my front door said they'd like to help, but they can't figure out how Brigham Young lost at Virginia. Oregon State scored 52 against Washington State, Arizona State scored 55, Oregon scored 62 and Stanford scored 55. USC piled up 193 yards in total offense.
