Meet the Fockers (sequel to Meet the Parents) did not disappoint. Equal parts thankful & disappointed that Sandler doesn't do sequels. Would've been all over a Waterboy 2, Bobby Bouche does the Draft. A Little Nicky 2 would've forced me to send Sandler hate mail.

Another season of success for Colin Kaepernick and he'll be right up there with Foster for the surprise category. Had potential all along but ran a gimmicky offense at Nevada. Not sure anyone would have picked him to *help take San Fran to the Super Bowl in year 2.

*I realize system & defense were huge parts of that 49ers run to the title game.

I thought Ki-Jana Carter was going to be the best ever. Think it was an injury that cut his career short before it ever really began. Think he was a No. 1 overall too.

Also, back before the Vols b-ball program began it's late 90's uptick, I loved watching Ron Mercer. Thought dude was good enough to be one of the best players in the league for years to come. Ended up a journeyman.

Blackburn to UTC is a win on many levels. Have a hunch this wont be his only AD gig. Very important first few weeks here. Weeds' story was spot-on... But I expect nothing less than excellent from Weeds.

Baseball is not a sprint. We all know this. Braves are gonna have many peaks and many valleys. We all know this, too.

Didn't go to Knoxville, but I loved Butch's tweet shortly after the game finished. "@UTCoachJones: Some places can't get 60,000+ to a game or seat 60,000 in their stadium! #BrickbyBrick #VolbyVol We will #RiseToTheTop!


Any doubt that was directed at the coach 180 miles to his west?

Bo don't know Rushmore's.

I'll say Sanders... Deion, Barry, Colonel, & gold medal Olympian swimmer Summer.

Rather Keith Jackson is CFB Royalty... Phil's royalty too tho. Just a different Rushmore.

Scully is tops. Matter of fact, I move we call it the Vin Scully Rushmore of fantastic TV play-by-play guys...

Pete/Skip share a spot for me. They were the voice of my childhood. Sean McDonough called two of the greatest plays of my life... Bream's slide and Stoerner's stumble (and fumble). Phil Jackson is CFB royalty. And Costas' voice signals "big event" to me. He makes a July game feel like October. (I don't care for his commentary on SNF, tho)

Braves are notorious for slow starts & struggles vs. bad teams. This start has shattered both perceptions. It's all gravy, man. Loving it.

Just re-read the contest rules... Take Tiger out & replace him with Bubba for me.

Great sports year for Atlanta, but I'll give the title of best recent run to Louisville based on the tiebreaker that was keeping Charlie Strong from bolting to the SEC.

Apologies if this was already covered here (been a busy month at OG Enterprises), but congrats to Selena Roberts for getting eyes on her site based on a story that has proved less than factual.

I'll take Tiger, Rory, Stricker, Phil, & Mahan.

Congrats to SportTalk and condolences to all the 102.3 guys on Wally's passing. Sad day.

If Vols have this same result (record & no dance) WITH Maymon, Conz is on the hotseat. The team actually overachieved a bit in my mind. That's probably because the SEC is a bad conference, which is why I'm fine with the Vols not getting in. I knew when they lost to Georgia after playing lights out for 2 weeks that this team's only consistency was inconsistency. And a 10 point loss to a similarly talented Alabama was just the final dagger.

Same result next year, with Maymon & (hopefully) Stokes are back, and the seat temp goes nuclear.

I expect a quick out in the NIT. Maybe they surprise me and get up for the kiss your sister tourney, but I can't see any motivation at this point.

First No. 1 out - Indiana, longest double digit seed in - the screamin' Marshalls (Ole Miss).
