So it's a rainy, wet, generally dreary Monday morning (in official meteorological lingo, "yucky") and the Blob is enjoying its morning coffee and thinking a few thoughts about the weekend just past ...
1. An astute betting man would be putting heavy action today that Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema won't be naming any offspring "Mary" any time soon. I mean, really, two straight games he gets beat by the Hail You-Know-Who?
To coin a phrase: Why's God hot at the Badgers all of a sudden?
2. Don't look now, but Smoke's comin' down the wind. Tony Stewart won his third race in the Chase yesterday and now sits just eight points adrift of frontrunner Carl Edwards in the points with three races left.
Considering Stewart himself gave his team zero chance to win it all when the Chase began, this could be the unlikeliest endgame since ... well, since the Cardinals won the World Series.
3. Tim Tebow may be a stellar human being, but he's an awful NFL quarterback. The numbers yesterday: 18-of-39 passing, 172 yards, a 100-yard pick six on one of the worst throws you'll ever see, and a 45-10 loss to the Lions.
As I've said before: As an NFL quarterback, Tebow would be a heck of an NFL H-back.
4. Stuff you missed if you went to bed early Saturday night: Perhaps the best college football game of the season, Stanford's 56-48 triple-overtime win over USC.
5. Stuff you missed if you went to bed early Sunday night: The Eagles' 34-7 trouncing of the Cowboys. An absolute working by Philly.
