Weekend musings

Can the last month of baseball season be more meaningless when it comes playoff time?

The Detroit Tigers gasped their way into the playoffs, finishing the season getting swept by Triple-A Kansas City. So what do the Tigers do but kick some $200 million Yankee butt right out of the playoffs. (The Evil Empire is 3-10 in the postseason since the Glorious Insurrection of 2004.)

Oh and then there are the St. Louis Cardinals. Here is a team that since May 1 was UNDER .500. Yet they bounced the San Diego Padres to the curb in just four games in the postseason

FOX TV executives have to be dying a thousand deaths to see their beloved Yanks go down in flames. Now they'll need the New York Mets in the series to avoid a TV ratings disaster like, oh, Oakland vs. St. Louis.

Bud Selig's big roll may be coming to an end.

Switching gears, I'll admit to being a Chicago Bears fan for nearly 40 years. That being said, these Bears are good. I'll go so far as to say they may be the best team in the NFC right now.

The Dallas Cowboys had a tough draw in Philly. But correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it supposed to be the Cowboys exposing the Eagles' secondary and not vice versa.

I'm tired of T.O.

You just knew Reggie Bush was going to have a highlight film touchdown at some point. It couldn't have come at a better time for the Saints.

Les Miles is 5-4 against ranked teams at LSU. Before you panic, Nick Saban had the same record at LSU after nine games against ranked teams.

Let me get this straight, Charles Scott is the answer for LSU at running back, unless the team plays on the road. Then, he doesn't get on the field.

If you think Louisiana Tech's defensive problems are bad now, then wait until they've played about 10 weeks in a row.

NSU ran 96 plays on Saturday. There are some teams that won't run 96 plays in two weeks.

Maybe LSU fans should be patient with Miles. It seems like he has several parallels to Nick Saban.

You know, came from a school (Oklahoma State) that was second fiddle in its own state. 5-4 vs. ranked teams in nine games. Seems to have his team disciplined and ready to go every week.

OK maybe I got carried away with the last one. I guess I should have called a timeout.
