Appalachian State: "DynAAsty!" Three straight college football I-AA titles, capping a dream season where App State beat Michigan in Ann Arbor and never looked back. Sure would look good in, say, the ACC.
Michigan meets with West Virginia's Rich Rodriguez: Now THIS would be a hire worth waiting for. I thought he wasn't interested, but I guess he is.
This either ends with Michigan landing the absolute best coach available on the market (meaning: not Carroll, Stoops or Meyer) or yet another humiliating defeat for AD Bill Martin.
MLB Hot Stove: A's trade Dan Haren to the D'backs for a bunch of prospects. Doesn't it feel like Oakland could have done a little better? Meanwhile, Arizona's 1-2 punch of Haren and Webb (or is that Webb and Haren) is the best pair of top-of-rotation starters in the NL.
More NL West: Is Jim Edmonds headed to San Diego?
Celtics set team record for home record to start a season: Given the history of the franchise, that's saying something pretty impressive.
MLB Mitchell Report, Cont'd: Doesn't it already feel like everyone (except hysterics and cranks) have kind of moved on?
NHL: Says it doesn't have a PED problem. (Psst: EVERY sport has a PED problem, don't kid yourself. Hockey is so irrelevant they can't even desperately attach themselves to the sports-wide steroid problem correctly.)
CFB Coaching Carousel: Tennessee OC David Cutcliffe to Duke. At least he will provide a little sizzle. And, hey, in the lightweight ACC, you never know. For the Blue Devils, a 4-win season would be cause for celebration. (6 wins and bowl-eligibility? A dream season. Wow: With expectations like that, it sure beats the SEC.)
CBB: Villanova can score. Keep that in mind when you're filling out your brackets in March.
College Soccer: Wake Forest vs. Ohio State for the men's title. You know how I feel about Ohio State teams in men's college championship games. (Maybe because they aren't playing a team from the SEC, the Buckeyes will actually have a chance to win. Kidding!)
