College football game of the year Candidate? I was thinking so about 10:30 last night, 4 hours after the game began in Baton Rouge, as Tennessee returned from the dead and beat LSU 30-27 in Overtime …JaMarcus Russell gave this game away with a horrendous INT up 24-14 in his own territory that was returned to the LSU 1 yard line.
Believe it or not, The Cowboys have room for improvement according to Jen Floyd…
Believe it or not, part 2 Despite Randy Moss and friends being gone, 2 more Minnesota Vikings have been arrested …
Brian Davis on Adrian Peterson …
Marlins and Burnett divorce …
Marlins general manager Larry Beinfest said Burnett has been asked to leave the team and will not be offered a multiyear contract during the offseason. The decision came a day after the pitcher said the team plays scared because manager Jack McKeon and the coaching staff are too negative. Burnett popped off after losing his sixth decision in a row at Atlanta.
Aggies, stop doing things like this! …You make it tough to defend you guys…
Rob Corddry on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” did a funny bit on the Packalope being forced to keep his deer antlers at home.

And the Vikings FM DJ fan strikes at the chance …
Superfan Larry Primeau, a k a the Packalope, has been forced to shed his trademark Pack helmet with its deer antlers because new stadium protocols specifically mention "antlers" as potential weapons.
In preparing a spoof on the antlers ban, show producers contacted Olsen, the midday DJ on KXXR Radio (93.7 FM) when he's out of costume. "They wanted me to play on the fact that Vikings and Packers fans aren't very fond of each other," Olsen said.
He happily obliged. "I told some Packer jokes, I said the town of Green Bay smelled bad and just ripped on Green Bay fans."
And here is some Tuesday Morning Email:
I've noticed Fraley has had a new article posted on the DMN web site since 8/14, and he is not listed in the Sports Day Columnists link I used to use. To me, he is as good a writer as we have in town. Given your show's association with him, I figured you might know if he has left town or something. Just curious. Thanks.
Fraley has taken a small leave of absence I have been told. He will still write baseball, but he is living elsewhere with his wife (she has a 10-month job thing in California I am told) until next summer, and will resume his column writing at that time. So, “Just Venting” is on hold….
Instead of those stupid little trinkets they give out to fans at certain home games, the Cowboys should have BARF BAG DAY. During the 4th quarter of the next home game, vendors walk to each section passing out BARF BAGS to those who may feel queasy watching the Cowboys try to hold a lead. They can even have special souvenir Roy Williams Barf Bags where the bottom of the bag falls out preventing it from catching anything. Proceeds can go to the "Get a Strong Safety Signing Bonus" fund.
Let me tell you one thing that burns me up about drafting a Sunbelt player over the best defensive player in the entire country last year and that’s watching Derrick Johnson run wild, picking up right where he left off at UT for the Chiefs. If Ware isn’t as good as DJ, then failed draft pick. Maybe Ware can play, maybe not, regardless, I will continue to compare him to DJ and that will be the barometer on if that was a good pick.
I do not disagree with you. I think they made the right choice, but after watching Johnson destroy the Big 12 like he did for years, the Cowboys took quite a chance…
Looking at the Jets quarterback situation- does it not speak volumes about the character of Carter. All kinds of replacements being called in- all holding a big bag of nothing. Yet here is Quincy, who just last year played for this team, and not one news story has reported any interest by the Jets in a reunion.
Thanks for listening,
That is a fine point. Dale Hansen must be puzzled how Quincy is not being chased by every team in football, given how great he was. He is now being treated like cancer around the league.
A day late, but, Here is Peter King’s MMQB …And he summed up the Packers problems brilliantly yesterday:
They just aren’t good enough. They had the 25th best defense last year, and they spent $50,000 in signing bonuses in the off-season. They had 3 Top-100 picks, and only spent 1 on their defense, and that was on a small-college safety.
