Five for Friday afternoon

Here are five for Friday afternoon:

My NFL Top 10

I'm going to keep the Top 10 trend rolling tonight with my NFL Top 10.

1. Packers (5-0) - The champs until someone beats them, and so far that's no one.

2. Lions (5-0) - The best story in the NFL so far this season. How great would it be if Detroit and Green Bay were both unbeaten heading into the Thanksgiving Day game?

3. Patriots (4-1) - I slept through their second-half collapse against the Bills, so I'm still not sure how it happened.

My college football Top 10

Here's my college football Top 10 for this week. I've got all the same teams back, just in a slightly different order. To me it's still a two-team race.  

1 (tie). LSU (6-0) & Alabama (6-0) - The Tigers' flogging of Florida (41-11) was 2 points better than the Crimson Tide's crushing of the Gators (38-10) on Oct. 1. I'm still waiting for Nov. 5 and the de facto national championship game in Tuscaloosa.  

30th District volleyball revamp

The bracket for next week's 30th District volleyball tournament at Shelby County has been revamped.

Anderson County and Henry County have flip-flopped seeds. The Bearcats have changed from a No. 4 seed to a No. 3 seed, while the Wildcats have dropped from a 3-seed to a 4-seed.

So if you're scoring at home now Henry County plays Eminence in the first round match at 6 p.m. Monday at Mike Casey Gymansium.

My college football Top 10

1. (tie) LSU (5-0) & Alabama (5-0) - Both teams have beaten three ranked foes so far this season, and two of those were on the road. It's not too early to declare Nov. 5's matchup between these two in Tuscaloosa the de facto national championship.

3. Wisconsin (5-0) - The Badgers absolutely destroyed No. 8 Nebraska on Saturday. Sure the Big 10 is down - Wisconsin has only one ranked opponent (Illinois) left on its schedule - but it looks like the Badgers have an easy road to an perfect regular season.

Five for Sunday

Here are five items for Sunday evening:

1. Somehow Shelbyville's Brandon Brown did not win the NGA/Hooters Pro Golf Tour's Player of the Year award (Jeff Corr won it) despite winning a Tour-best four times this year and leading it in money. Unbelievable.

Six for Friday

Here are six items for Friday:

1. The Collins boys' soccer team will play host Male on Saturday (I'm still not sure of the time) in the final of the Bulldog Cup. The Titans beat Holy Cross 5-0 Thursday night to earn that right. Matthew Murphy, Baker Medley, Caleb Vogel, Dylan Gravett and Phillip Burkhardt scored goals for Collins. Also Thursday night, the Shelby County boys' soccer team handled Henry County 8-0 at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

UofL should head to the SEC

Some of the biggest news in college sports over the weekend was that Syracuse and Pittsburgh plan on leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference. Apparently Connecticut wants to make that move too. This appears to be the beginning of the end of the Big East, which is an unbelievable basketball conference but a bad one for football.

Then there is talk that the new Pac-12 is courting Oklahoma and Texas, the two heavyweight football powers from what remains of the Big 12.

NFL thoughts: Week 2

Here are five quick thoughts on Sunday's NFL action:

1. Great way to end the day with a great game between the Eagles and the Falcons! I hated to see Michael Vick go down with an injury, but his backup played well on Philly's last drive of the game and it definitely wasn't his fault they lost (see that dropped pass on fourth down). Still you have to think the Eagles would've won the game if Vick would've been in there the whole time.

UofL-UK wrap-up

Here are five of my thoughts after UofL's 24-17 victory over UK on Saturday night:

1. Wow! Not what I expected at all. Wow to Teddy Bridgewater! The true freshman looked very, very good in relief of Will Stein. Wow to Dominique Brown! What genius came up with the idea of putting him at running back? Wow to the Cardinals' offense, especially their running game! Is it just me, or was that a completely different UofL team than the one that showed up for the first two games?!
