    Um, Collin, The Notebook is a chick flick; oh hell, I liked it, too.
    Terry, might be time for a haircut.
    Fellas, you sure you want to be stranded on an island with…other guys? Nope.
    Nope, that’s not Steve Urkel.
    Hats off to Corker and Couch going for the M.D. Go for it. Did you know former ’70’s UK linebacker, Jim Kovach, played football while attending the College of Medicine…tough gig. He played 7 years for the Saints and 49ers.

    A 6’3 240lb LB who can tap dance must be one hell of a blocking assignment.

    And gymnastics have helped quite a few receivers so I wonder how’ll it will effect a RB.
