Caillou is the the cole slaw of kids' edutainment.

I'd take Georgia (10.5) in a heartbeat. I can see a 41-10 Dawg win, and a spiral into the abyss by the Vols-no bowl, recruits changing their minds, and a whole lotta' handwringing by the coach's (soon to be former?) supporters. The USA game was one of the most pitiful performances I've ever had the misfortune to witness, and tickets could literally not be given away.

Maybe the vandalism was a ploy by Baylor folks to fire up their own team. Who knows.

Where is Tyler Bray on the list of SEC Quarterbacks?

Matt, the majority is always "wrong" or to some.

ToHold, nobody is forcing students to take part. If they're afraid of being singled out for not participating, they can fake it.

5-at-10, has there ever been consideration for putting together a high school basketball preview, similar to but not as extensive as the high school football preview? Each district could get a couple of pages, with rosters, returning leaders, and the like. It would take 25-30 pages.

Loser-Kenny Britt. In three hours he went from "throw me the darned ball!" to "put me in the darned game!" They need to unload him and try to add some offseason defensive line depth with his salary.

A sequel, how about Bad News Bears with the original characters on the team now parents and raising a new group of knuckleheads. An aside, I read not long ago the girl playing the pitcher in the Billy Bob Thornton remake passed away in a car accident. Sad.

The conspiracy theorist in me would believe Clemson got the benefit of a doubt on NC State's called-back touchdown, due to the league wanting Clemson in a national title game. But that would be silly, wouldn't it?

Floyd Patterson and Pink Floyd.

Locker was Turrible with a capital T except for two drives. That's not good enough in the N-F-L. Short pass late in the fourth could have been enough to win the game. The Titans hurt themselves with 3 straight penalties at their goal line too leading to the safety. All three wiped out positive gains.

We went back to the Mocs game after considering calling it a wrap after the Martin game, and we enjoyed it, even if Peay would literally have a hard time with some high school teams.

I watched much of the Tennessee and Alabama games yesterday. Tennessee just doesn't have enough bricks yet but it's coming. Alabama, just pencil them in against Ohio State. Oregon will slip up somewhere and Alabama will hammer the Buckeyes. The Big 10 is Turrible. How about Lil Bowden beating that 37 spread at Michigan?

Seattle vs San Fran was worth only getting 4 hours of sleep.

Want to get to see Ooltewah vs East Hamilton before halftime, you better get there early.

No more slaps on the wrist for violent offenders, burglars, and dope sellers. Some of these criminals are beyond rehabilitation. Get them off the street for as long as possible, not hand out probation for assault/battery and burglaries.

I've never understood the reasoning on why signing with an agent/taking money from an agent should cost a player his eligibility. He's not playing for pay, he's receiving pay to be represented with the expected goal of eventually playing pro football. I don't like cheating in any form but it's something outside the teams' control, why not just ignore it.

Sohn, the Howard article mentioned knee-high grass. Nobody there could even bother to mow it apparently. There has to be some push from the locals there, too.

You know the NFL is back when we get as many Rob Ryan shots on the sideline as of the head coaches.

I hate the Steelers center-one of the best in the game-was injured, but it was caused by the guard trying to dive and take out at defensive lineman's knee. He just whiffed. It was hardly a "fall" as the announcers tried to say it was.

Titans OL and DL looked stout. Eventually the quarterback will have to make some plays.

"Scandal" is the word being used by those who think Huesman's lie is not a big deal, to overexaggerate and make those disappointed by it seem to be worrying about nothing. "Disappointment" is the word I would use. If Robinson had not been part of the drama last year, would violation of team rules been the stated reason with no hesitation?

Yes, so much for Duck sleepiness. The Vols are in trouble, maybe 60+ allowed.

The Packers got back in it, partially, with the run, then completely abandoned it again late. Eddie Lacy looked pretty good.

If Clowney goes to the Jaguars next year, their offense will still be terrible. Two more years of 2 or 3 wins and then they can draft the Florida State quarterback.
