I've been fighting a cold for the past week, and now the wife is coming down with it. Despite all of that, there's some updates:
The Bucs won over the Saints yesterday, 23-20 in the wet and cold. So much for the idiot's article about the Saints winning the South and the Bucs falling out of it. Like I've said, the division will go down to next Monday night's game in Carolina.
Jon Gruden won his 100th game as a coach becoming just the 3rd youngest (45) to do so. John Madden (41) and Bill Cowher (44) were the only others to do it younger.
The Bucs will host the Patriots on October 25, 2009 in London, England next season. They'll play at Wembley Stadium, home of the also Glazer-owned Manchester United. The Saints beat the Chargers there earlier this season.
ESPN is reporting Monte Kiffen, the Bucs defensive coordinator, will being moving on to join his son, Lane Kiffen, at Tennessee after the Bucs season is done. Geez, I hope not, but looks like it might be so. Monte wasn't talking much about it yesterday, calling it "speculation".
And wasn't it great to see Cadillac Williams score yesterday for the first time in what seems like forever. Its good to have him back and off blocks.
Oh, and the Blue Devils romped over Duquesne last Friday. They matchup against #10 Purdue tomorrow night at 8:00CST on ESPN as apart of the ACC-Big Ten challenge. Its on the Boilermakers home court so they should pose quite a challenge for the Dukies.
