The Brown Five - 1/3/08 - Now with titles!

The Brown Five is a daily breakdown of five stories that Brown stumbled upon and cause 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..

Note: Yes, I missed about 2 weeks of stories. No, I'm not going to go back in time and recount them. Other bloggers either get paid or really give a damn, not me.

1) Parcells cleans house
Randy Mueller, gone. Cam Cameron and his assistants, gone. Dallas Cowboys cupboard? Getting raided. If you know anything about Bill Parcells he only hires "Parcells Guys". Half of those people are in Dallas right now, and Bill would like nothing more than to rip the carpet out from the house he built in Dallas. Keep on eye on things.

2) Oklahoma is so good in bowls
Sure, win the Big XII all you want to then go shit the bed in bowl games. Way to represent the conference, ass faces. Sure, Texas might lost you ass holes a lot, but at least we go and win our bowl games, and we're 2-0 in the BCS games we've played with the same number of national championships. No one likes Oklahoma except for the slack jaws in Norman. Best prediction to come from the WVU win at the Fiesta Bowl? Pat White probably got some of Erin Andrews.

3) The Mother of all Bad Decisions
Jamaal Charles is going to declare himself for the 2008 NFL draft. I'm not so sure this is a good idea, in fact, I think it's a bad idea. This is also one of those times that I really hope I'm wrong. I've been watching this kid since he was a freshman, and nothing ever has said to me "NFL". (Granted, no one said that about Priest Holmes when he was at Texas.) At 6'1" and 205 pounds with speed, he's an interesting choice, but this is a simple case of "strike while the iron's hot". So much for that 2008 Heisman run.

4) Royals making a move at Bartolo Colon
He's a Ranger killer, so I wouldn't mine seeing him get the fuck out of the division. However, I'm not so sure Kansas City is making a good move here (surprise, surprise). Given the nature of Colon's injuries and his ever increasing challenge to David Wells in a sumo contest, he's not the force he's been before.

5) Mavs destroy Warriors
What rivalry? Sure, it only matters during May and June. I've heard that argument before, but that doesn't make the regular season totally bunk. Bottom line is, if Nelly has figured out Dirk and the Mavericks, then he should be able to beat them in November and December as well as in May and June. Kudos to Brandon Bass. Welcome back to the team, buddy.

Yea, my draft brain can't beleive that JC is coming out. With the number of RB's that are about his same ability, he could go anywhere from the late 1st (doubt it) to the middle 3rd. Probley somewhere around pick 10-17 in the 2nd is my guess right now. Denver, Chi-town, Detroit, and Arizona are all in that range that could take him.
