Saturday 12/13 (Very) Quickie

Wow, I miss College Football Saturdays. Very much.

Heisman tonight: Still too close to call.

Yankees sign AJ Burnett: Wow. What recession?

(By the way, it's going to be even funnier when they don't make the playoffs with CC and AJ in the rotation. Over-under on Burnett's injury-free starts: 10.)

Brandon Jacobs out tomorrow vs. Cowboys and the Cowboys deny there are massive problems in their locker room: You know things are bad if the Giants are saying, "Man, you guys got problems."

Celtics win 14th straight: Beating the Hornets is no joke.
Cavs win 11th straight: I'll be in Atlanta tonight, but won't get to see them, unfortunately.

1-AA Playoffs: Montana edges top-seeded James Madison in semis.

Syracuse hires Doug Marrone: Great hire. You want an alum. They have the kind of energy for the program that can't be imported from the outside.

Will Muschamp denies talking with Auburn: I have said this for a while. I know Muschamp is a stand-up guy and committed to Texas, but what does Auburn have to lose by offering him $3-4 million a year?

(From Texas' standpoint, they'll get Muschamp back as soon as Mack Brown retires anyway -- could be one year, could be three or four. Aren't they better off with him getting experience as an actual head coach, rather than as a head-coach-in-waiting? That's cynical, but - hey - it's a cynical business.)

On the road all day traveling. Will post again tomorrow a.m.

College football Saturdays have been replaced by something even better. College basketball Saturdays! Already today Temple upset Tennessee on ESPN and G'town is playing Memphis.
