The announcement that ESPN would be taking its rollicking GameDay show to North Dakota State this week should have been a tip-off to make weekend getaway plans. The network packages these excursions as wholesome, public service peeks into the subdivisions of football people don't get to see. And they certainly can offer up delicious slices of Americana. It also means ESPN got stuck with a lousy slate of games. Sometimes it just works out that way. Kansas State and Texas looked good on paper only a month ago. But that was before Kansas State lost to - North Dakota State!

Whether you bet on Florida State or Savannah State on Saturday, you couldn't lose. At least not at Las Vegas sportsbooks that go by the usual rules. The rout-in-waiting that had Savannah State visiting Florida State drew plenty of attention in Las Vegas this week after oddsmakers made the sixth-ranked Seminoles a record 70.5-point favorite. Well, Florida State seemed well on its way to beating that spread, but nobody ended up winning … or losing. Harsh weather forced the game to be stopped early in the third period - short off the 55-minute mark that most Las Vegas books, by rules, consider a complete game.

Freddie Roach, star trainer for boxing's stars, has done the introspection. In his last four major fights, he is 0-4. There have been a few sleepless nights, some quiet time in dark rooms, a few longer-than-normal gazes into the mirror. He decided he had to know if, at age 52, with enough success in his chosen field to be named trainer of the year five times, he had suddenly lost it. So he went to the master of his universe, his own Obi-Wan Kenobi. "My mom laughed," Roach says.
