Quincy Enunwa was named Gator Bowl MVP. Not only that, but after catching the 99-yard TD pass, he was the unofficial winner of the Gator Bowl 5K.
I wouldn’t say the Huskers’ practice field at the University of North Florida was rough, but two players got stuck in quicksand.
Uga IX had a hotel room in Jacksonville. It’s frustrating enough to not be able to get a room on New Year’s Eve without seeing a bulldog checking in.

As of Tuesday, the Packers had 11,000 unsold tickets to Sunday’s playoff game vs. the 49ers. I still have a hard time using the term “fair weather” to describe fans who’ve spent the past five months with blocks of foam rubber cheese atop their noggins.
Jay Cutler signed a seven-year contract extension with the Bears. Seven years. When this contract expires, there’s a good chance Cutler will have the option of signing with the NFL team in Madrid.
Mike Ditka appeared to fall asleep during “NFL Countdown.” This may be the one way to finally humble Keyshawn Johnson — for him to be analyzing the playoff picture and hear snoring.
U.S. middle distance runner Nick Symmonds vowed to run naked until he found a new apparel sponsor. Hey, I think I know how to get NBC to air more Olympic track events.
To put into perspective how huge the Creighton-Marquette men’s basketball game was, the last time the Bluejays had a game that big, the lady who raises the roof was in middle school.
The Southern men’s college basketball team defeated Champion Baptist 116-12. Just my luck — I had Champion Baptist and got 103 points.
There’s a YouTube video of a man atop a 561-foot tower in Dallas sinking a basket into a moving goal. Man, Kyle Korver is having some kind of year.
And finally: In Kissimmee, Fla., a “pro wrestling dinner theater” has opened. I think I may have just found the worst place ever for Mother’s Day brunch.
