CHECKING THE BOARD
You gotta love Steve Rosenbloom’s nickname for Kerry Wood and Mark Prior: Butch Casualty and the Sidelined Kid.
The [tag]Bears[/tag] have signed Lovie favorite [tag]Adam Archuleta[/tag]. Maybe he’s a ‘system’ player. But I have a hard time getting excited about a guy who sat for 7 weeks on the [tag]Redskins[/tag] bench last year–while he was cashing some huge checks.
I see the [tag]Bulls[/tag] took the night off on Tuesday. They let the [tag]Clippers[/tag] shoot over 50% including 5-7 on 3-pointers. They also had 40 free throw attempts. 40. In Chicago. The Clippers are 10-24 on the road. I’m guessing Scott Skiles let them know they are not good enough to just show up on the court and win. Without defensive intensity the Bulls are just another team.
Go Blue Demons! [tag]DePaul[/tag] takes on Air Force tonight in the [tag]NIT[/tag] quarterfinals. If they win tonight they advance to the NIT Final Four and play either Syracuse or Clemson. The Blue Demons were impressive in a road win against Kansas State. KSU has been reborn under [tag]Bob Huggins[/tag]. But if I was in a dead pool, Bob Huggins would be one of my top picks. He looked pale and sweat through his suit during that game. He just didn’t look healthy. Anyway, you should watch tonight, 8pm central on ESPN2.
