Um, no.

Granted, there’s likely to be a lot of competition in the next few weeks, but at present I’m inclined to give this article the nod as the dumbest preseason prediction piece going.

Dude, there’s nothing wrong with doing a little hatin’ on Southern Cal…

Southern Cal is without question the most Hollywood-stylish and marketable team in the NCAA. That’s why the national sports media establishment and big-time sponsors are completely star-struck with the Trojans to the point of obsession, and that’s the only real reason they’re getting handed the No. 1 spot.

… just don’t let it cloud your judgment. Notre Dame has the kind of marketability that USC can only dream of. Southern Cal is a consensus preseason #1 because it’s loaded with experienced talent.

That doesn’t mean that the Trojans are going to win the MNC this year. But you have to question the objectivity, or maybe the sanity, of anyone who asserts that “Boise State… most definitely deserve(s) to be ranked ahead of USC.”

Not the intelligence, though…

Political posturing: the saga of Big Ten TV continues.

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think it’s ever a good thing when you come to the attention of any member of Congress who chairs a committee.

I do think I know what’s making Commissioner Delany so cranky lately, though – nobody can spell his name correctly.

UPDATE: In the immortal words of Ray Goff, this just keeps getting “buttah and buttah”.

How’d you like to have this next door?

UPDATE:  I had no idea this was part of a Home Depot promotion.  I wouldn’t want to live next door to that color scheme, either.  Who thinks up this stuff?
