So what did we learn so far this week… that Roger Clemens really likes country music and the women that sing it. Can you believe this cat (allegedly) had a 10-year affair with Mindy McCready that began when she was 15? The wheels have come off the Rocket Man’s ship in 2008.
Byron Scott, New Orleans Hornets Head Coach, won the 2007 – 08 NBA Coach of The Year Award. It’s been a great year for the B-Ball team in the Big Easy… and CP3 just sent Kidd’s Mavericks home from the playoffs tonight.

I salute Meyer’s crafty thinking and how it energizes the student body while keeping the Gators in the national spotlight during the offseason.
