Monday News:

Michelle Obama spoke at a fundraiser in Princeton yesterday and attendees included her brother Craig, Mitch Henderson and Steve Mills along with current players Chris Clement and Mack Darrow.

The previous day Craig Robinson visited an Obama campaign office in Philadelphia.

As each mentioned via Twitter, Tiger recruits Spencer Weisz and Pete Miller were both on campus this past weekend for their respective official visits.

It looks like paying for parking at Jadwin Gym for basketball games, which was cast off early into last season, is back for the entirety of the 2012-13 slate. The information published by Princeton's Transportation & Parking Services was in error. There's no charge for basketball parking this season, I'm happy to report.

Chris Young made perhaps his final home start at Citi Field yesterday and while Young will likely end his campaign winless in Queens, he again turned in a performance worthy of victory. Young threw six innings of five hit baseball, allowing one earned run while walking two and striking out five. With a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth, the Mets would sweep Miami 3-2.

Northwestern guard JerShon Cobb was suspended from the Wildcats for a year "due to violations of team policy." He will remain enrolled in school.

Bill Carmody joined WGN Radio alongside Athletic Director Jim Phillips.

A forward from Nevada has trimmed his list of potential schools to six, including Princeton.

Princeton Day School product Davon Reed has committed to Miami.

As you've likely heard by now, Shirley Tilghman will step down as president of Princeton in June.

Before she concludes her term, Tilghman will meet with the Princeton Football Association about issues that could also impact basketball such as transfers, "likely" letters and academic standards for athletes.

One of the intriguing aspects of the football discussion is that the letter did NOT come from the PFA, which explicitly distanced itself. Still, it will be the forum for the exchange of ideas, which is probably all to the good.

I'm always fascinated by any stated effort for special treatment (in this case, the academic standards piece and the likely letters; the others seem to be requested for the student body at large). Fans and supporters of various extracurricular groups often seem oblivious to the reality that, in the Ivies, anything seeming to favor one student subpopulation will inherently be resented by others. There is no free lunch.

When Young talks about his final homestart of 2012 he will first mention his double.
