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.
In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
