Comments are disabled on this, because I don't want to get into a political discussion, but I thought this was interesting. Did people know that Heath Shuler is running for Congress in North Carolina? Not only is he running, but he's leading the incumbent in fundraising. It's also interesting that he's running as a Democrat -- most ex-athletes in politics are Republicans.
The games this week are much less hyped than last week's, but they still feature closely-ranked teams vying for conference pecking order in bowl season.
