ZONER’S MONDAY MORSELS

I had no idea. The Mendenhall brothers were not all that happy playing for Coach Ron Zook. Recall that they were recruited by Ron Turner. Walter is headed to ISU to play for the Redbirds.

J.A. Adande has a great story about Dee Brown and Deron Williams.

Some good news for Cubs fans: Chris Carpenter has deemed himself not ready for the bigs. This is after he threw 4 shutout innings in AA. “But for me, anyway, with that command (Sunday), I’m not on any fast track. I need to get better.”
Pro Football Free Agency has a look at the top 10 players that could be traded between now and week 6 in the NFL.
And finally, a list of things for those that take life too seriously.
Oh wait. Kerry Wood. DL. Yada, yada.
