Random Sports Musings On A Sunday Night

The Film Babe and I are going to see the late show of “In The Loop.” But it doesn’t start for another hour and a half. So here I am killin’ time, thinking about the world of sports.

Is Rachel Alexandra the sportsperson of the year?

My Detroit Tigers are 7 games up in the AL Central. Is it enough with the shakiest closer among the contenders?

Are they jumping off buildings in Norman and Oklahoma City and Tulsa because of Sam Bradford’s shoulder injury?

Frank Beamer has never beaten a Top 5 team away from home.

Lee Corso isn’t the same since his health problems.

How come so many really good U of L QBs have failed — so far — in the NFL? Browning Nagle. Dave Ragone. Brian Brohm. Hunter Cantwell. How does a guy like Chris Redman get significantly better after sitting out for a couple of seasons?

Who is harder to listen to: Tim McCarver, Lou Holtz, Dickie V or Chris Berman?

How come I’ll watch European soccer but not the American league?

Why do they start some matches so late at the U.S Open Tennis Tourney?

Wouldn’t it be great if some pro team hired Steve Kragthorpe to replace their recently fired offensive coordinator? I know, I know, impossible, but, hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?

University of Florida has never had an undefeated football team.

Admit it, Notre Dame vs. Michigan is intriguing again all of a sudden.

Southern Cal playing on the banks of the Olentangy with a frosh QB who has only one game under his belt. As bad as they looked against the Midshipmen, take the points and the Buckeyes.

39 days until October 15.

You think they’d boo the President if he showed up at Rupp wearing a Cotton Nash throwback jersey?

Despite your loyalties to the school of your choice, aren’t you, like me, getting more than a bit tired of all the commercialization? That’s why I’m gonna be following Scotty Davenport’s Bellarmine Knights and U of L’s Lady Cards this season.

In a matchup of two of the squirreliest coaches in college pigskin, UCLA visits Tennessee this coming Saturday.

Tiger Woods.

Is it just coincidence that The Rick added yet another member to staff, a guy who just happens to be his primary recruit’s assistant coach? I . . . don’t . . . think . . . so!

    I am of several different opinions about Brohm.
    Could his lackluster professional career be because Petrino and his system made Brohm a better QB than he really was?

    Remember too that he seemed to have fallen off quite a bit in his senior season so was that a reflection of losing Petrino and gaining Kragthorpe or was it never fully recovering either physically or mentally from his injury, a recovery that is still incomplete?

    Or is the answer somewhere in between?

    On Saturday, Petrino’s 2d string QB threw for 140 yards and two TDs.

    Affirmative. I’m an OU football fan and looking for the nearest bridge.

    I am also a big Bellarmine fan; the Knights lose the best PG in the state, but should still be loaded this season. Look forward to your coverage!
