Sunday (Very) Quickie

So short of playing for a national title, the final game of Tim Tebow's career went about as well as possible. But the Tebow Era at Florida is over -- Tebow's pro career has begun. Tracking, now 'til the Draft...

Is it me or have the bowl games mostly sputtered? Northwestern's loss to Auburn was an amazing way to start the New Year's Day slate, but aside from that, it's been pretty lame. Kudos to Ohio State on beating a very good Oregon team. (I will now curse OSU fans by picking them to go unbeaten next year and making the national title game.)

I wasn't impressed by Kentucky. They could have stepped on the throat of Louisville early; they settled for a cheap forearm to the head and letting UL back in the game in the 2nd half. I'm not saying that UK still isn't on the fast track for the Final Four, but a team like Purdue wouldn't stand for that. If anything plagues Kentucky, it's the "head-case" factor -- don't discount it.

(Damn, maybe I need to reconsider my feeling that Syracuse is a potential Final Four team. Let's stick with Elite Eight. Meanwhile, Kansas showed just how good it is by throttling a good Temple team.)

Gilbert Arenas on Twitter this weekend has been mesmerizing -- if only because this is a personable athlete, entirely unfiltered. And it's freaky.

The end of the college football season always bums me out -- yeah, recruiting is interesting, as is spring practice -- but it's not the same as the season. I'm sure hard-core NFL fans feel the same way, particularly for fans whose teams' seasons are over today.
