I enjoyed this week’s article in ESPN the Magazine that showed Chase Daniel as the Heisman candidate and Chase Patton as the possible NFL QB. Patton has the NFL measurables with his 6’4 height and zero college touchdown passes. Daniel might be the prototypical spread QB. His height and stocky stature will not help him come combine time. Since Daniel is good friends with Warren Buffet, maybe he has less to worry about than the rest of us regarding his financial future.
My AUFL team is favored for the second week in a row. That has to be a record. I’m a little peeved that Roddy White had the audacity to get hurt in practice and possibly affect his status for the week. Perhaps NFL teams will continue to not notice that he is their only weapon.
Is tomorrow going to be the perfect day of college football? It starts at noon with the Red River Shootout. Texas versus Oklahoma. At 3:30 the top game is Florida versus LSU. Finally Missouri faces Oklahoma State (five unbeatens left in the Big 12) at 8 p.m.
I made a suggestion to a friend that even though both teams are out of the running, the White Sox and Cubs should play a series. If they played, say for charity, wouldn’t that be more interesting than Dodgers/Phillies? Yeah, I’d still pass.
