A few random thoughts while hanging at Disney and Universal this week.....
13) ESPN.com's Todd McShay did a mock NFL draft; his first six players were all linemen. In other words, not a very strong draft.
12) Top QB will either be West Virginia's Geno Smith or Matt Barkley of USC, who lost a lot of money by staying in school this year.
11) Oklahoma State booster T. Boone Pickens bought the last 4,000 tickets to Cowboys' December 31 game with Gonzaga, then had school give them away on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets were gone in 90 minutes.
10) Kevin Youkilis is the 52nd big league All-Star who will play for both the Red Sox and Bronx Bombers. Eight members of the '04 Red Sox later went on to play in the Bronx; thats a little weird.
9) Michigan beat Binghamton Tuesday night, committing only four fouls the whole game.
8) Kurt Warner has a new reality show on USA Network starting in April, where he gives nine every-day people the chance to pursue the career of their dreams. Don't think any of the nine chose bagging groceries.
7) Skip Holtz is new football coach at Louisiana Tech; not sure why South Florida pulled the plug so fast on him, but I think he's a good coach and will do well at Tech.
6) One of the cool things about college sports is how some schools are powers in one sport, and doormats in others. Duke-Kentucky-UNLV are dreadful in football, but always win in hoops. Nebraska-Penn State-Virginia Tech are perennial top 20 football teams, but struggle in basketball.
5) Duke lost its last four games, finished 6-6, but is still going to a bowl game; will they bring any fans to Charlotte with them?
4) 11 of 13 NBA games Wednesday were decided by 7 or less points. Just an excellent night of entertainment.
3) Jay Cutler has a sprained MCL, should still start against the Packers Sunday, but more and more, the Bears seem like a sinking ship.
2) Wichita State lost 69-60 at Tennessee, its first loss this season, to a team that scored 36-38 points in its last two games.
1) Honest question: If you owned an NFL team that needed a QB, say you're the Arizona Cardinals, would you make a move for Michael Vick?
