Andy is proud of Cade and Colin’s sweater vests.

Oregon’s Rose Bowl uniforms give you an idea what Darth Vader would wear. Duck Vader. Kids will love them too…

“Bielema, I am your father”

It sounds ridiculous hearing “World Peace” over and over during a Lakers game, but that is the legal name of the man formerly known as Ron Artest…

I’m glad to have the NBA back. A Christmas day start should become the new norm, but it won’t happen. Too much money left on the table…

The Heat this season looks like the team people expected last season. Look out…

The Des Moines Register’s Randy Peterson was asking the right questions when a mildly frustrated Kirk Ferentz eventually broke out the now infamous breaking wind anecdote. Deep down, Ferentz knows Peterson is just doing his job, and looking for the same answers as Hawkeye fans. It’s not the questions that really frustrate Ferentz. It’s the fact negative things have happened to make the questions necessary. Ferentz was attempting to deflect with sarcasm. I don’t think it’s a big deal, though I couldn’t quite muster up a laugh…

I meant to see War Horse on my day off Monday. Somehow I ended up playing blackjack at Prairie Meadows instead…

Not at Prairie Meadows. Well, maybe a horse, but not this horse.

Bill Maher can be funny, but his tweet about Tim Tebow is way over the line. I won’t repeat it here…

I can’t wait to see Chris Hassel’s report from the Ground Zero Memorial with the Cyclones Wednesday. I think it’s going to hit everyone harder than they expect…

Has it already been more than 10 years?

    Ferentz just needs to come out and give some statement – any statement – as to why Coker is not playing. Something as simple as “Coker broke a team rule and is being disciplined accordingly” The annual silent treatment about these things is getting old.

    Speaking of getting old – the fact that this has become an annual event. How can top level, Big Ten athletes get in trouble to the point of being suspended for bowl games year after year?? I can see it being the fourth string long snapper but the starting running back?

    WTF!

    The secret to Ferentz and why he will never be a head coach in the NFL. See folks, ol Kirk has got a really thin playbook. Really skinny. Kirk drills that skinny little playbook into his players until they are really good at those plays. However, anyone who figures out Kirk's playbook can beat him with far less talented teams. Ask Dan McCarney. NFL Defemsive coordinators and head coaches would laugh at it, and then destroy any team under Kirk. Kirk knows this. He wouldn't take an NFL head coaching job for any amount of money.
