This is an absolute must-read by Greg Cosell so I’m trying to post this in as many places as I can. Here’s the link:
You didn’t think we’d get all the way through the NFL Draft without a post, did you? I did. But we didn’t, so here it is. My Dad is a big draft fan (I had to get it from somewhere) but this year he hasn’t been able to do his normal draftnik stuff because of an Avenged Sevenfold concert and the circus. I’m not kidding and yes, his job is cooler than yours. Anyway, he asked me yesterday if I would send him some thoughts on the draft so he’d have some for tonight. The following is the email I sent him. Fair warning, we’re both Rams fans so that gets a little more coverage. Also, anyone who picks after the Rams also gets jobbed since I really don’t care what they do. It’s not the best draft post, but it will do. Also, I did not proofread this because I don’t like doing that.
Again, this is a homer post. Again, I don’t care. It’s my blog, I do what I want with it.
Like I wrote on Thursday and had posted on Friday (internet problems again? Really?), I was too excited about the Mizzou-Oklahoma to even think about anything else, except a few Blues games.
So mostly for my own records, I’m going to recount my 36 hours or so, just for when Mizzou does eventually lose I can come back to this and remember just how perfect things really went.

Back on August 23rd I wrote this post about former Missouri Tigers wide receiver Danario Alexander signing with the St. Louis Rams. I was excited then and I was even more excited about his NFL debut today.
After the Rams lost their leading (only?) receiver last week when the turf monster in Detroit decided to attack Mark Clayton, they really had nowhere to turn except Alexander. He had been assigned to the practice squad and questions lingered about the health of his knee following the fourth operation. Plus, he’d been brought on late had a playbook to learn. Still, he showed the Rams enough to get activated for today’s game against the Chargers. I wasn’t sure if he’d just serve as a decoy or a 3rd down/5th wide receiver or if he’d actually get some playing time.
Turns out, he did a whole lot more than I expected. (more…)
We had a little shakeup at the top with South Carolina’s win over Alabama. Did Oregon take the top spot or did we follow the pundits and put Ohio State at #1?
The suspense is killing me, so I’ll get to it.
Alright, so I promised sweeping changes, but we didn’t get them. Weller’s internet is broken so we didn’t get a chance to discuss this. (That’s why you’ll find florida still in the poll and LSU only dropping five spots.
Also, I figured out how to not be an idiot and got the new format. Hope you enjoy it:
In what seems to be a recurring theme around here, I don’t have any time to post this. As most of you don’t know, Weller and I went to Denver this past weekend and caught the Rockies thrilling extra inning, walk off victory against the Giants on Saturday and then the Colts win over the Broncos on Sunday. Then we drove all the way back to St. Louis overnight so I could work in the morning. That leaves precious little time to post.
So I’ll just give you our early Blogpoll for Week 5 with no reasons to back it all up. That will come tomorrow night, I promise.
As always, disagree in the comments.
Alright, I’m a day late on this because I’m lazy and I’ve been playing lots of video games. I did get this entered in the official site, though, so good for me.
Anyway, here’s last week’s poll and here’s this week’s poll:
I was all set yesterday to write a glowing review of the Rams opening weekend victory over Arizona Cardinals while heaping praise on the best young quarterback in the history of sports, Sam Bradford. Then, the unthinkable happened. The Rams lost. I lost my will to post. It happens.
So instead you’ll get our Blogpoll for Week 2 and some of the reasons behind it. As always leave some opinions. We may just change some stuff if we think you’re right.
Here’s a look at Week 2.
