Sports analysis, perspective and more.

Power rankings



Who's hot this week in the world of sports:
Zook 1. Ron Zook. Hey, Gators fans, look who Illinois extended through 2012.
2. Armwood football. Extends home winning streak to 30 games with dominant victory against Hillsborough.
3. Priest Holmes. Chiefs back practices with team for first time since Oct. 2005.
4. Bill Stoneman. A man with priorities — quits as Angels GM to spend more time with family.
5. Colorado Rockies. Will they ever lose again?
6. New England Patriots. Will they ever lose again?
7. Monica Abbott/Lorena Ochoa. The Tennessee pitcher and pro golfer, respectively, named Sportswomen of the Year by the Women's Sports Foundation.
8. Tampa Bay Bucs. It's beginning to look a lot like playoffs.
9. Minnesota Wild. This is cool — team takes players' moms on a road trip.
10. Dusty Baker. Old managers don't die. They get hired by the Reds.

Who's not hot this week in the world of sports:
Usf_2 1. USF. Party was nice while it lasted.
2. Joe Torre. No one with this much class should be treated like the Yankees treated him.
3. Tampa Bay Lightning. Suddenly, a losing streak.
4. Bob Hartley. Not to toot my own horn, but I predicted on Oct. 3 that he would be first NHL coach fired.
5. USF-Rutgers referees. Not to sound like a homer, but the refs had a questionable night.
6. Miami Dolphins. Might have a perfect record … in the other direction.
7. Dice-K Matsuzaka. Red Sox pitcher is 2-5 with a 6.43 ERA since Aug. 5.
8. Santana Moss. Redskins receiver pulls self from game because he didn't "feel right.''
9. Evander Holyfield. Time to ride into the sunset, big guy.
10. Nebraska football. Can't see coach Bill Callahan surviving this mess.
