You know the Lane Kiffin storyline is wearying when the news that Tiger Woods is allegedly in rehab for sex addiction is the preferred leading storyline of the morning. But there it is.
My point: Woods should have gone out with "sex addict" immediately; it would have defused (and diffused) the entire scandal.
Lane Kiffin is right about one thing: USC is a better job than Tennessee. That doesn't make him a more likable (or qualified) coach, but it's something.
Would Tennessee really re-hire Phil Fulmer? I still think they should throw crazy money at Muschamp -- even if he uses Tennessee as a training ground for an eventual return to Texas.
College Hoops Player of the Mid-Season? Obviously, John Wall.
Want a stark comparison? Try No. 1 overall NBA draft pick Blake Griffin -- out for the season, now, with that knee injury -- compared to 2nd-round steal DeJuan Blair, who had 27 and 21 last night... and has no ACLs in either knee.
Where inevitability happens: I need flare-ups like Blair's line last night (or off-court stuff like Arenas) to keep me engaged with the NBA, because otherwise, the macro view is depressing: The Lakers are clearly going to win the West and beat whoever comes out of the East.
So let me get this straight: Chris Johnson is NFL Offensive Player of the Year, but Peyton Manning was the overwhelming MVP.
Love the Charlie Brown career stats thing.
The NFL may have gotten pummeled yesterday by the Supreme Court, but don't expect the ruling to change much.
Idol: Sorry, it's my guilty pleasure. While everyone else is talking about "Skiboski" or "Pants on the Ground," I think that kid from Illinois with the sick mom is going to be a Top 10 finalist.
