Odds and Ends

This past Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday were about as busy as I remember in a long time without being out of town at the NCAA's, the Orange Bowl, or other big events. Anyway, I checked in with the Bengals today and it seems all systems go for Cleveland. Some guys are dinged up, but it sounds like most, if not all, (including Maualuga) will be ready for the Browns. You never, ever, know in the NFL, but if there is ever a road game I think the Bengals can grab, it's this one. The Browns are a messed up group at this point. Dissension seems to be rampant in Cleveland.

U.C. should be able to cruise into Oxford and take care of business with the Miami Redhawks. Miami seems to have found something with quarterback Zac Dysert, but it won't be enough. U.C. will be bringing the Victory Bell back to Clifton. It's a very nice schedule set-up for the Bearcats. Play at Miami, then a week and a half off to prepare for South Florida. This way U.C. is not tempted to look past Miami because they know they have plenty of time to study up on the 4-0 Bulls.

How are the South Florida Bulls still not ranked? I'll tell ya: Wofford, Western Kentucky, and Charleston Southern, before the big win over Florida State. Why so many cupcakes? That's just dumb in my opinion.

There was a big play in the Rockies-Cardinals game over the weekend. Clint Barmes made an amazing grab and turned it into a game-ending double play. Then a fan sitting in right field posted some photos he took of the play, and well, it may not have been a catch after all. The television replays didn't have this angle. This is just the latest example of how mass media is changing thanks to the internet and small electronic devices that capure clear pictures and video.
