Do you think Anthony Davis doesn't shave his unibrow because he is hoping it becomes his signature look, similar to Michael Strahan's trademark gap?
—Michael (New Jersey)
At this point, I don’t think there’s any doubt that that's his plan. It's just not clear whether that was his plan all along. Maybe when the unibrow started to form, he didn’t realize he was supposed to shave it, and all of his friends and family were too scared to tell him it looked hideous because they didn’t want to sour their relationship with their cash cow. Then once he realized it was ugly, he decided to just leave it because he saw how much the Kentucky fans love it.
Either way, he has no choice but to embrace it and keep it for the rest of his career, because it has surpassed Joakim Noah’s pube ponytail, Shane Battier’s wrinkled head, Larry Johnson and Stephon Marbury’s middle part, Adam Morrison’s dirty mop head and trash 'stache, Casey Jacobsen’s frosted tips, Luke Schenscher’s ginger curls, and Eugene Edgerson’s lamb chop sideburns and Afro as the most iconic hair in college basketball in the past 25 years. If Davis got rid of it now, it would be like Ric Flair shaving his head in the mid-80s.
This week, we asked for your e-mails about March Madness for another mailbag from Grantland's favorite walk-on, Mark Titus. Here are a few of the questions that hit Titus's inbox.
Is there anything worse in college basketball than the TV timeouts? I was at the tournament games in Portland on Thursday and it seemed like I spent more time looking at an empty floor than the games. They kill any momentum and flow a game has. Why anyone would pay to go to tournament games when they could stay at home and change channels during the timeouts is beyond me. I learned my lesson.
The only thing worse than the TV timeouts was that they didn't serve beer in the Rose Garden! —Seth
Did you guys notice that Katie Baker's mailbag, Bake Shop, has moved?

As always, send questions, concerns, or baking jokes to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

No question is too small, no problem too big, and Katie Baker will never, ever judge. Send along any questions, comments, hopes, and/or fears to Triangle@Grantland.com and Katie will do her very best to answer. It's cool … she didn't have any Labor Day weekend plans anyway.
