What would a Friday afternoon be without Len Pasquarelli? Today he starts by addressing the issue of revenue sharing and the owners' deal with the players. Jerry Jones feels more optimism than he has any reason to feel: "We'll find an answer, because we have to, and everyone knows that. But what [the solution] is, well, I don't know yet. I don't think anyone does, really."
Pasquarelli also reports that a couple of former first-round picks, Dimitrius Underwood and Rashard Anderson, are going to play in the CFL. Anderson "was reinstated by the NFL a year ago after finally kicking a marijuana habit he had been unable to shake for a long time," according to Pasquarelli, but I can't help but think maybe he's still using the marijuana but is now also using the Original Whizzinator.
In what is likely the best opening week of college football we've seen in years, we're treated to a series of neutral-site, out-of-conference matchups that could have a resounding impact on the entire college football season.
