Big trouble in Big D

Fantasy moves

If you have Romo, sorry. And since Peyton Manning is likely unavailable (kidding), look to grab Colt McCoy, the former University of Texas star and current Browns rookie. Hey it's better than nothing. And if he's still out there in your league, grab Dallas rookie Dez Bryant, he's better than a lot of things.


NBA starts tonight

Heat and Celtics and, yeah, yeah, yeah... It's a long regular season, but it does start tonight. The big story line today is LeBron James' new Nike commercial. Let's just say, that King James and Sir Charles Barkley are not going to be sharing any cabs anytime soon.


No mystery in the polls

College basketball season is around the corner, and that means the preseason polls will be released this week. There is very little drama in either the men's poll, which will be released Thursday, or the women's poll, which be out Friday. Let's just project that defending national champs Duke and UConn will be up there near the top.
