No “Black Knight” ????
….. This World Series Quandry has me bumfuzzled.  I am pulling equally for both teams which makes every play an upper/downer.  Why must sports be such a passion play?

In A Post-Ev World?
…… Is it officially Short List Season for If Not Ev, Who?  If we can eat turkey 365 then we can coach-guess any time we please.   Every board monkey in his mamma’s basement has Skip Holtz on his list because Skip & Bubba were South Bend buddies.  Every out-of-work coach NOT named Dan Hawkins has to be listed. – RichRod – Leach – Shannon – Willingham – Mangini – Stewart – Gruden et al.  Of course – “that Boise State guy”.
Herm Edwards is my personal choice.  UNC has never had a coach named Herm plus Herm is a really passionate cuss.   Are you serious BL?  No.
Is it true that Butch texted Bubba to recommend Jimmy Johnson?  Probably.
UNTIL you can come to grips with why Butch was fired your list of “next” will be totally invalid.  About 65% of UNCers fall in to that catregory

Interim Ev’s #1 Problem
….. THE #1 millstone dragging Ev down is Butchie Boy hisownself.  Butchie (and his ego) just won’t go away.  Butchie lurking “above-the-fold” reminds us that Butchie & Ev are eternally linked.  Butch is to Ev what BozoBiden is to Obama – “dead weight”.
Ev’s Must Wins – either Clemson or VaTech ….. either Wake or State preferably both ….. and, DUH, Duke.

Bubba BS
…. As predictable as a News&Observer political endorsement – The Bubba Cunningham Has Webbed Feet Internet reports have begun.  Any rival fan goober with access to a keyboard can throw up wild&wooly BS stories.  And at least 63 of you will contact me – “BobLee is it true that – Bubba is a member of the Tri-Lateral Commission – Bubba jaywalked in the 8th grade – Bubba is the love-child of Ted Bundy & Lizzie Borden – Bubba once dated a 7th Day Adventist – Does Holden Know?  Oh Me, Oh My!” – jeeezzz.

Speaking of “weight”
….. With The NBA stuck in Purgatory, The #1 basketball team in the universe is Royz Boyz.  It ain’t like the Blue Messiah hasn’t “been here – done this” before.  He has.  Being pre-season consensus #1 means we are in for “but they only won by 15 …. what’s wrong?”

Many have asked for 
…… A number of you have asked for my BobLee Reisten List.  Whether you are still stuck in dead tree reader world or are cool multi-taskers with; here are some good’uns to check out:
