Let’s start with Ohio State Buckeyes vs USC Trojans. The Buckeyes got the word that Beanie Wells will play. How healthy he is and how effective he can be remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Notre Dame coach Frank Weis is being reminded that he once said “To Hell with Michigan” in what he says is an homage to Old Bo. OK, I buy that, but be ready to play. Neither team is covering itself in glory in 2008.
The San Diego Chargers have lost Sean Merriman for the season, something that seemed bound to happen. Better 2008 than forever.
Strange things happening in Tennessee Titans Land where the team sent police to help locate the ethereal and obviously fragile Vince Young, whose knee and feelings got hurt on Sunday. This party might get stranger down the line.
The Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are running neck and neck. This could get interesting. The Minnesota Twins and White Sox are also waging major war for their division. In fact, 5 out of 6 divisions in the MLB are close enough for holding your breath.
