The Brown Five is (what will hopefully be) a daily breakdown of five stories that Brown stumbled upon and causes his eyebrows to raise up a bit. This probably won't be daily because Brown has the attention span of a...hey look! A bicycle...
1) College Football 2007 is unpredictable
Really, between Oregon and Oklahoma being upset, are we ready to concede picking games in the college football landscape anymore?
Whatever the BCS says week-to-week really doesn't matter because there are so many important games between now and December 2nd, that I'm not sure anyone is really aware of what is going on
However, this Saturday's Missouri-Kansas game has just become THE game to watch.
2) Minnesota Vikings front line
Adrian Peterson is a good running back. Chester Taylor is a good running back. Mewelde Moore is a serviceable running back.
All that being said, why doesn't the Minnesota offensive line being given more credit?
Think about it, with quarterbacks like Tarvaris Jackson and Brooks Bollinger, defenses can stack 8 or 9 in the box, and be just fine, yet the Vikings manage to rip off 200 yards rushing every game.
They've got good backs, sure, but it's Matt Birk and Steve Hutchinson that make things happen...after all, anyone heard from Shaun Alexander these days? Exactly.
3) Memphis Grizzlies underrated weapon
If I say the name "Mike Miller" to you, it may not ring a bell. Mike Miller might be one of the most underrated, and unknown, guys in the entire NBA.
But, if you watch a Memphis Grizzlies game, and you can get past Pau Gasol's "I fell off a boxcar" look and Rudy Gay's last name, then you'll notice another guy on the floor who probably looks more apt to be playing soccer.
That guy is Mike Miller, and if teams (ahem, Dallas) are content to leave him wide open and uncontested, he's going to drain buckets left and right.
On a lighter note, the Celtics finally lost! Hooray Dwight Howard!
4) Torii Hunter having dinner with Tom Hicks
I really don't have much to add here except to say that the last time a big time free agent had dinner at Tom Hicks's house, he was given a $250 million contract.
5) Jimmie Johnson won his second of back-to-back Winston/Nextel/Sprint/Piston cups.
A nation yawns.
