“Tebow Time” finally struck midnight. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are no longer invincible. Plus the Cincinnati Reds just made the blockbuster trade of the offseason thus far (Pujols, Reyes, and Wilson signing were free agent moves). It has been a wild past few days to say the least. Here are the items that have caught my attention.
Rivers has finally arrived
-Have you ever heard the expression “Too little, too late?” In the case of Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers, this may be the case. You better believe the franchise that had won four straight AFC West crowns before last season and has not experienced a losing season since 2003 is not going to go down without a fight though. Many, including myself, had anointed Philip Rivers as “the guy” this year in the NFL. He was going to take home the MVP honors and lead San Diego to a deep playoff wrong.

How many of you are aware that real regular season college hoops has been played? Unless your respective team has opened up the season, I am guessing that this is news to you. Why does college basketball always start at such a weird time, amid such a lack of publicity? Nobody knows, but things will heat up. That is a promise.
With all of the insanity going on in sports at the moment, college hoops may be a good release. Either way, as is always the case, come mid-January, college basketball will be at the center of the sporting stratosphere.

The halfway marker of the College Football season has come and gone. And despite the constant reminders of what a business college athletics have become due to the crazy rumor mill regarding conference realignment, this season has been full of excitement and great football.
Who is Robert Griffin III?
-In a huge Big 12 rumble out in College Station, a track meet occurred. Sadly, it was a very lopsided track meet. But we learned one thing. Robert Griffin III has been outstanding this year, but do not sleep on A&M senior QB Ryan Tannehill. The duel of the savvy veterans was won by the underdog yesterday. Continue reading
