LITKE: NFL deserves every bad call it gets
Remember this a year or two from now, when a video of the final play of Monday night's Packers-Seahawks game turns up on a blooper reel: It wasn't all that funny watching it the first time around.
DAHLBERG: Wild card adds some intrigue to baseball
For baseball purists, there's not a whole lot to like about what Bud Selig has done to the national pastime.
More proof of that came Wednesday when Selig said he wasn't likely to do anything about Melky Cabrera winning the NL batting title while serving a 50-game suspension for a positive drug test. He also said he has no plans to do some things he should have done a long time ago - like take Barry Bonds' name off the top of the career home run list and restore Roger Maris as the legitimate single-season home run record holder.
HORNING: Stoops must know Snyder's secret
It’s too bad that Bob Stoops, despite being in an otherwise good mood during his weekly Monday meeting with the media, remained one not to speculate, because the answer would have been fascinating.
HORNING: Not a network, but it could be fun
Joe Castiglione calls it “the best of all possible worlds.” Oklahoma’s athletic director may be right. Even if we know what it isn’t.

Kenny Stills, showed signs of the old Kenny Stills, flat dropping a ball that would have been a touchdown.
HORNING: Correctable mistakes? It's a long list
Bob Stoops tried to explain what happened late Saturday night and early Sunday morning at Sun Bowl Stadium.
DAHLBERG: Shutting down Strasburg is curious plan
Stephen Strasburg sure didn't look like a pitcher with issues Sunday afternoon in Washington. Quite the opposite, he looked like someone the St. Louis Cardinals or any other team wouldn't want to face in the playoffs a month from now.
DAHLBERG: Cowboys desperation shows with Bryant
Owning a major sports franchise isn't all about charging gullible fans $75 to park, and counting all the millions that television networks throw your way. Not for those who take their work seriously, secure in the knowledge that winning one Super Bowl or World Series will both excite the local populace and make the team even richer.
