Re: “Best word for Paterno and family? Arrogance

Another person from the media who refuses to read and fully digest the Freeh report and wants nothing more than to tear down a person who rose to the top.

Re: “Best word for Paterno and family? Arrogance

You had to go back to 1970 to relate to something negative? WOW!! You really do hate the Paternos and PSU!
Maybe you should be reporting on the weather (at least that would be current).

Re: “New heights for PP Marathon

"Carpenter has won the Pikes Peak Marathon an amazing 12 times, including the past six years" and that doesn't even touch Imogene! Carpenter rules. The stuff that legends are born from. What comes is just tribute to the definition of Mountain Runner. Long Live Carpenter!

Re: “Morality and college football

I was in Arkansas when the decision to fire Petrino came down. I was surprised, given their lust for a championship team. Jeff Long, the University of Arkansas and the people of Arkansas showed a lot of class.

Re: “Give Manning a chance

More excellent analysis, Ralph.

Re: “Manning: right or wrong?

Ralph: you were always a very good sports writer. It is a shame you now do it in a place with a very small audience. Your and Tosches' talents are essentially being wasted.

Re: “Tips for that NCAA bracket

Colorado and Colorado State have earned No. 11 seeds in different regions. For details and bracket analysis, check the IndyBlog before making your picks for the NCAA Tournament.

Re: “Bowl verdict: one more game?

"Most disappointing conference: Big Ten, given that Wisconsin, Ohio State, Nebraska, Penn State, Iowa, Northwestern and Washington all lost."

Just curious, but when did Washington join the big 10?

Re: “Tebow: 'Back' him up

Tebow has had a few bad games but what young quarterback doesn't? The whole team has played poorly and the talent on that team just isn't that good. Remember they traded their best receiver (Lloyd) the week before they made Tebow the starter. I still like Tebow and hope he plays well. If he can't make it as a QB then turn him into a RB/FB/TE cause he is a football player, that's for sure.

Re: “Now we'll see the real Broncos

I retract my previous statement, you are indeed correct about Broncos wrapping up West on Christmas Eve with a win and SD/Oak loss; my apologies. Just a KC fan trying to keep hope alive.

Re: “Now we'll see the real Broncos

Your "set of circumstances where Denver could wrap up the AFC West on Christmas Eve" is incorrect. Denver would still have to beat the KC Chiefs on Jan 1st to win the West; that's why KC still barely alive as you state above. If that plays out, I may have to purchase a Kyle Orton KC jersey. Can you imagine the Tebow vs Orton hype next week if that game determines the West? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Re: “Now we'll see the real Broncos

Nice job Ralph. Perhaps the best synopsis and evaluation of - where Denver stands, the NE game, the team and their future that I have read.

Re: “Views on Broncos, BCS, CSU

I think Colorado native Mick McCall's name should being considered. He has been very successful as the Off. Coordinator at Northwestern in Chicago. He's clean competitive coach that recruits well especially in Colorado (pretty sure he was a head coach of a big high school here in Denver). NU's current explosive quarterback, Kain Colter, is from Cherry Creek high school. And it was probably McCall that recruited him. McCall runs a Urban Meyer style spread offense that moves the chains and wins games.

We're all familiar with Barnett, unfortunately enough for him, his name is still infamously familiar in Colorado and he has been out of coaching for 7 seasons. He could go somewhere else and definitely win games.

Re: “Tebow: still a mystery

My view is in agreement with yours, Ralph - albeit a bit more simplistic: talented as he may be, Timmy ain't gonna be able to run around long in the NFL.

The Pro Game is, as everyone knows, FAR different than the junior-high, high school, and college arenas where this kid cut his chops.

I tell no one nothing they don't already know: if Tebow intends to be the consummate One-Man Show Super-Utility Back, there are some mighty big and effective defenders who will gladly bring his career to a premature close via one or more legal, but disabling, hits.

As a current media darling, Timmy's gonna find his 15 minutes of fame'll run out real quick.
This kid needs to quickly learn either how to run that offense and use his team - or learn to run backwards toward the sideline.
Otherwise he ain't gonna be around long ...

Re: “Could Sox leave the Springs?

I sure hope they don't leave cause the little guy featured in this amazing shot video absolutely loves going to the games. BTW, feel free to share the video!

Re: “NCAA losing all stability

Although it certainly seems like these are crazy times for college athletics, the chaos was bound to happen given the financial stakes. Television contracts and the potential for revenue sharing are strong motivators. Couple those motivators with a shift in decision-making from athletic directors to university boards/presidents, and you have a recipe for an ever-changing landscape of conferences....
