  1. “He has become the area’s boxing franchise, reviving a sport that has been on the ropes around the country.”

    Uh Thom, are you forgetting about Lamont and Anthony Peterson? I mean, not even a mention of the undefeated brothers who are both in line for major title fights in the coming year. That’s pretty damn weak.

    I like Lange, and it’s great that he’s cultivated a following, but he’s still a Contender alum.

  2. Dukes comes off a bit like a jackass in the beginning, but was being a homer for the Redskins. Daniels comes off as a jerk IMHO a bigger one, trying to get Missouri fans to go after Dukes.

  3. Definite PAC-10/Little 11/ ND bias in that QB list. USC # 1 ? The U and BYU should be at the top
    of that list, I could even live with ND there given the pro careers of Montana and Joey T. None of the USC ones mentioned have had a great pro career yet except for Pat Haden.

    And the Terps didnt even make honrable mention
