Random Thoughts - 6/5

It's been a while, but here are some thoughts that have been going around in my head . . .

Kellen Winslow Jr. made a boneheaded mistake by goofing off and getting hurt on a motorcycle . . . okay, the kid made a mistake -- it's time for the media to lay off him already. . .

I sure wish the Cleveland media would get after the criminal activities going on with the Buckeye football program with the same gusto they have with Winslow . . .

I still say Winslow is going to be a beast in the NFL . . .

It was disappointing to see former Buckeye standout Mike Doss get charged with various violations including discharging a gun outside of Canal Park in Akron . . . Doss was the leader of the 2002 National Championship team. . .

Face it Ohio State fans, the Buckeye football program has the criminal reputation of the Miami Hurricanes of the 1980s . . .

Speaking of the Canes, if you ask me, I think head coach Larry Coker needs to have a big season . . . I don't have any inside information, but I get the feeling the pressure is starting to mount on him . . .

Does the island of Hawaii have any slums or housing developments? . . .

If the baseball playoff began today, here would be your match-ups:
American League
Anaheim vs. Chicago
Minnesota vs. Baltimore

National League
Atlanta vs. St. Louis
Chicago vs. San Diego

Before the season began, how many people predicted San Diego, Baltimore, and the White Sox in the playoff race . . ..

Honestly now, how many people predicted that the Yankees and Red Sox would not make the playoffs? . . .

Derek Lee for the Triple Crown? . . .

The Cleveland Indians finally dumped Eddie Murray as a hitting coach . . . Murray better change his attitude if he wants to get back into Major League Baseball . . .

The Michigan softball team may be the first Big Ten team to ever win the college softball World Series . . .

NFL training camp is coming up fast . . .

I got the first pick in my fantasy football draft . . . I leaning toward LaDainian Tomlinson . . .

Great article in last week's Washington Post sports section about Redskins rookie quarterback Jason Campbell . . . he is a good kid . . .

Calling coach Tressel, it's 9:46 a.m., do you know where your star players are? . . .

Whatever happened to former Buckeye tight end John Frank? . . .

I know there are people out there who don't like Shaq, but when was the last time you heard his name in the news linked to drugs, DUI, assault, rape, etc. . . . it was reported that the Big Aristotle is going to pay for the funeral of former Minneapolis Laker great George Mikan . . . Shaq is a good person. . . you gotta love the giant . . .

My money is going on the Miami Heat in Monday night's game seven battle with the defending champion Detroit Pistons . . .

Is Mike Brown the real deal as a head coach? . . .

I say Giacomo will win the Belmont Stakes on Saturday . . .

Remember Thunder Gulch? . . .

What has Smarty Jones been up to lately . . .

Until next time, the beat goes on . . .

Heat will take it, but its all about D. Wade.

Hear about Shaq running for sheriff down here in Florida. He's been busting on-line child preditors in his off time. Seriously.

Winslow needs a major attitude adjustment to have any impact in the NFL, let alone play.
