  • Iowa’s win over Pitt looks more impressive after the Panthers beat the snot out of #16 South Florida Thursday night.
  • The Red Sox collapse was as unlikely as it was spectacular. On September third, the Red Sox chance of making the playoffs was 99.6%. (Source: NY Times)
  • Talk the Red Sox should fire Terry Francona is just silly. The guy led the Sox to two World Series championships in the past seven years. When we lose, and it hurts, we want to blame someone right away. (See Bill Buckner or Steve Bartman)
