I find it interesting that New England has chosen to go down a road that runs the risk of irritating the most important player in franchise history. By not yet entering into serious contract negotiations with Tom Brady -- a situation that Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports went into great detail here -- the Patriots could be doing more harm than good.
Yes, I am on record saying that every Super Bowl should be in New Orleans. Well ... I love New Orleans Super Bowls. There's something about the city, the people, the history that makes a Super Bowl there feel even bigger than normal. Of course, I'm all for keeping things the same. I think every U.S. Open should be at Pebble Beach, every British Open at St. Andrews, every football "National Championship" game at the Rose Bowl and every Final Four in Indianapolis.
I thought I heard him laugh a bit under his breath when I posed the question, but who in the NFL would you rather be right now than Mike Tannenbaum, general manager of the news-making New York Jets?

The Steelers without a suspended Ben Roethlisberger early in the 2010 season will be an obviously weakened team, but they are not the 2007 Falcons sent reeling by an incarcerated Michael Vick or even the equivalent of a Colts or Saints team if they were to face a daunting extended absence by star quarterbacks Peyton Manning or Drew Brees.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- It's right, it's fair, it's just, it's good, it's shocking. You were not dreaming (or nightmaring, if you live in Indiana). The Saints have won the Super Bowl.
MIAMI LAKES, Fla. -- We've got ourselves a story. When the Indianapolis Colts take the practice field Wednesday, everyone who follows the NFL will be interested in learning if Dwight Freeney will be in any kind of shape to play in Super Bowl 44 Sunday against New Orleans.
NEW YORK -- Now that was a weird day. Sad with the devastating knee injury to one of the real poster children for everything that is good about the NFL, Wes Welker. Flummoxing with the total collapse of the Giants and Broncos. Maddening with starters sitting to some degree in six of the games involving playoff contenders ... and the weirdo Colts deciding that individual records are important a week after deciding 19-0 wasn't. Strangely undramatic for a Week 17, with only two win-and-get-in games, neither of which was any good -- the Ravens handling the Raiders with slight difficulty and the Jets handling the Bengals with none.
NEW YORK -- Five things I want to hit right at the top:
I'm proud to say I live in a state that has taken tobacco control seriously, and gotten some serious results.

Before I forget, I'm trying to make a list of all the teams around the country (high school, college, women's, etc.) that are using all or part of the trendy offense (known as Dribble-Drive Motion or AASAA) devised by Vance Walberg and used by Memphis these days. If you're a coach who's running it, please send me the name of your school and the town/city where you're located. Thanks!
Thunderstorms, high winds and a possible tornado are blamed for two deaths in Indiana.
Dear FSB: Our family is looking to transfer our education business and sell the property. We hired a commercial agent but have only received one possible suitor, which did not work out. The business is set up as a not-for-profit and is tax-exempt, so we can take advantage of tax breaks. We would sell the property and transfer the board seats to any suitor who bought the property. While the business took a year or two to get off the ground, it is now doing much better. What can we do to move the sale along more quickly?

SACRAMENTO -- A great deal has changed for both Indiana and Gonzaga since the 'Zags 90-80 victory over Indiana in the second round of last year's tournament, but here's one of the biggest differences: this time, the Hoosiers had their best big man available and Gonzaga did not. That helped lead to Thursday's reversal of fortune, a 70-57 victory for Indiana that propelled the Hoosiers into the second round against UCLA on Saturday.

That's what it's all about."
Antonie Davis didn't want his dad's new team to play any games. The 8-year-old remembered the end of his father tenure at Indiana all too well, when Mike Davis was under the intense scrutiny from fans that were still clinging to the memory of the icon he replaced. But back home in his native Alabama, as the first-year coach at UAB and away from the ominous shadow of Bob Knight, Davis has found his comfort zone -- and delivered a message to his son that is fitting after his tumultuous time in Bloomington.
