What a great night I had last night. First Kentucky Gets beat then I look at the crawl on the bottom of the screen that Duke is on simultaneously. Then I flip that over and Dukie Vitale is on there getting his face shoved in it by Marquette who was awesome in ripping Duke to shreds in the second half. I actually fell asleep on my couch watching this. Talk about going to sleep with a smile on your face. All kidding aside, UK has a pretty impressive trio of freshmen who brought them back from the dead last night versus UCLA.

How pumped are you to see us play the Vols playing tonight in MSG? Pearl keeps evoking Allen Houston, Ernie and Bernie. Is there an angle this guy doesnít uncover? Houston will be there tonight for the game as well. Pearl is so smooth! Tennessee better watch themselves tonight. Win or lose this evening and they play either Gonzaga or North Carolina on Friday. I would love to see us win the thing but 1-1 would be fine with me. Iíll take a win tonight and a loss in the championship game or a loss tonight and a win over North Carolina is the losers bracket. Then I can send 10lbs of popped popcorn to Roy (Tse Tung) Williams. Heís my Dat Gum Favorite Coach!

With Week 12 Here, itís time to appreciate Ainge:
Ainge has completed 68 percent of his passes and, barring a poor performance in the finale, will set the school record for single-season completion percentage. The record is 64.9 percent, set by Daryl Dickey in 1985.

Ryan Callahan With Some Stuff In Todayís Tennessean
Tennessee football players Arian Foster, David Holbert and Antonio Wardlow pleaded guilty Tuesday to misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and underage alcohol consumption stemming from an altercation earlier this month at a Knoxville nightclub.

The three were arrested shortly after 3 a.m. Nov. 5, just hours after the Vols' loss to LSU. Knoxville police had responded to a disturbance call for a fight involving 70 people at GoodFellas Bar and Grill.

The players are set to appear in court this morning, when they are expected to receive pre-trial diversion, meaning their record will be expunged of the charges in a year if they avoid any future incidents.

"I have the greatest respect for the authorities and court system involved," Coach Phillip Fulmer said Tuesday night in a statement. "These young men made a mistake. They have learned from it, and we will move on."

Foster was suspended for the first half of UT's Nov. 11 game at Arkansas, Holbert for the whole game and Wardlow for two games, including Saturday's 39-10 win at Vanderbilt.
### Did Foster Really get a couple of carries in the Arkansas Game##

Permanent captains: Fulmer announced that offensive tackle Arron Sears, receiver Jayson Swain, linebacker Marvin Mitchell as well as defensive tackles Justin Harrell and Turk McBride have been named permanent captains.

The Vols named individual game captains each week throughout the season. It was the first time since 1990 that they entered the season without predetermined captains.

Tennessee used the same strategy in 1990, choosing full-time captains at the end of the regular season. The Vols won the SEC championship that year.

Paul Gattis of The Huntsville Times is reporting that Baby Shula is coming back for another year of punishment. The poor guys doesnít have it and ĎBama doesnít have the guts to pull the trigger. They are mandating staff changes! People ask why I call him Football Buzz and the answer is easy. Buzz couldnít win close games because he canít get it done. Shula has never had a team come from behind in the fourth quarter in four years. Not even Bobby Johnson or Rich Brooks could say that with ľ the material. Bottom line. He canít do it! Not trying to be mean, but some can and some canít. He canít. Here are the numbers. Buzz found ways to lose just like Shula does.

The Tide lost five of its six games this season by a touchdown or less

Shula is 26-23 in four seasons. With the loss to Auburn, he became the first coach in school history to lose four straight to the Tide's cross-state rival.

He is also 0-4 against LSU and 1-3 against Tennessee.

But after leading the Tide to a 10-2 record in 2005, including a Cotton Bowl win over Texas Tech, Shula received in May a new six-year contract worth $1.8 million per year.

If Alabama decides to dismiss Shula, he would be owed $3 million in a buyout along with $200,000 for each year remaining on the contract, according to the terms of his contract.

With five years remaining on his contract, that would raise the buyout to $4 million
##### No End To Shula########

Jerry Green Of The Orlando Sentinel Has a Pretty Good Show Topic Idea Today:

One of the great moments in TV sitcom history was when Mr. Carlson of WKRP in Cincinnati had 20 live turkeys thrown out of a helicopter, prompting Les to scream: "The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement!" And Mr. Carlson to respond: "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

In memory of Mr. Carlson, we present our five 2006 Flying Turkey Awards:

No. 5 -- Ricky Williams, who did it again.

No. 4 -- Albert Haynesworth, for mistaking a foe's head for the ball.

No. 3 -- Zinedine Zidane, who would be higher except it was soccer.

No. 2 -- Kim Etheredge, T.O.'s "publicist who wondered how we could say anything bad about "a man of his statue."

No. 1 -- U.S. Ryder Cup Team for maintaining our excellence on the international front.

Who are yours? We could have a good time with this today.

And a showoff. What hath Elmo Wright wrought? A Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, Wright in 1973 was the first player to dance in the end zone. Eight years earlier, Homer Jones became the first to spike the ball.

Brandon Lloydís Rap Tune:
Moss himself used the term, "prima donna," to describe his brethren, but another Redskins receiver, Brandon Lloyd, was downright offended when the subject was broached.
"I don't know what you're talking about," he told a reporter, adding, "I think that you're not doing a very good job of writing your article. ... I don't think it has anything to do with being a receiver."
His face was entirely straight.
Perhaps it doesn't. Perhaps being a receiver has nothing to do with Lloyd, a rapper in his spare time, composing a ditty called "Bad Child," which includes the lyrics, "Those crackers in San Fran act like they couldn't stand B; [Expletive], 29 mil later, now you understand me."

Lloyd apparently still has an axe to grind with his former employers, but that hardly makes him unique. Type into Google "wide receivers" and "disgruntled" and 14 names quickly turn up. (Do "guard" and "disgruntled" and you get a lot of basketball players.) Lloyd, when he was with the Niners, is among the names, along with Owens, Randy Moss, Deion Branch, Javon Walker, Laveranues Coles, Ashley Lelie and, yes, Santana Moss. All to some extent used their disgruntledness ó which generally comes down to not having enough passes, or money, thrown their way ó to force exits from their previous teams.

NASCAR Chase: Todays Richmond Times Dispatch
30 Races Run
That said, in the three years of the Chase for the Wireless Goliath trophy, the eventual champion has won all of two races out of 30. Two. Total. And isn't that the sort of hard-charging crescendo France predicted when he concocted NASCAR's playoffs as part of his organizational makeover?

NASCAR isn't necessarily in decline, but it is in a rut. Almost half its 36 races -- Homestead included showed ratings dips of more than 10 percent when compared with 2005 numbers. Plus, fewer than half its events were sellouts.

On a personal note:
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Know that I'm grateful and thankful to God for letting me kick it with yawl! Praise Jesus!
