I heard a radio show a couple of days ago and I swear the announcer said something about how the Browns had been looking good, but had lost a winnable game to Jacksonville . . . and then it happens today?  Is it the Twilight Zone, or was it an announcer who has seen this all before?

Kill will win it for sure if Minnesota keeps playing so well, and he may have done enough to nearly wrap it up already.  I certainly think he's deserving of some honors. 

Deserving or not, I personally don't care if Urban gets it for two reasons: 

1) I doubt if Urban cares too much about that particular award.

2) Tressel went 14-0 and won several National Coach of the Year awards to go with his national championship but did not get the B1G COY, therefore the award doesn't have much validity.

The SEC has the top team and three out of the top 4 -- so if the season ended today I guess it would be 3 SEC teams plus FSU (an honorary SEC team from the southeast) in the playoff -- 4 out of the top 6, half of the top 10.   Yes, I understand they've won the championship several years in a row.  But I refuse to believe that they are THAT dominant. 

I think the voters have some SEC-colored glasses.

There's a team up north that might have an opening for him soon . . .

Left the cupboard bare . . . .so bare that four years into it, poor Mr. Muschamp still can't win or score any points on offense.  What a scoundrel.

Lost the game thread . . . but if this keeps up there might be a few folks waking up with horse heads in the bed.

Very true . . . I like Papa John's a lot more than I like Dominos.  They seem to have a Louisville connection, though.

But I really hope the CEO of Dewey's doesn't end up there, though.  That's a fantastic pizza.

Marvin Jones just got put on IR too . . . but I suspect they are bringing in a QB to look at an upgrade for backup QB.  But the Bengals bring in a lot of guys.  Never know how serious they are.

I think the Bank of Ann Arbor zinger is pretty funny . . . but not as funny as some of the retorts in this article.  And DJ, I love the stuff you post, but I agree with Andy on this one -- "Columbus was a flawed hero -- as all men are flawed, including heroes -- and his flaws are of a kind particularly offensive to today's culture. But he was nevertheless a hero, achieving in a manner unequalled in the history of exploration and the sea, changing history forever."

So I'm not throwing stones, I'm celebrating!

Brady Hoke wishes to rise to mediocrity.

Glad to hear she is doing fine, and I'm sure we will be sending many prayers that it continues that way.
