Something new.

Jindal has won in Louisiana. As Redstate notes - How bad is it for the Democrats? Even St. Louis Cemetery's numbers are coming in for Jindal.

Something positive, too, though Red State gets carried away by the moment, but then he's a partisan and that's what partisans do. The first link notes that turnout was 100,000 less than in 2003 (46,000 in New Orleans.)

This sometime partisan is still realing from dashed and dashed and dashed hopes in the competition he most cares about. Little hope left that Cal will play in the Rose Bowl and until the last play last week there was some small hope that, despite the injuries, they'd be playing for the the National Championship come January. It would have been nice to, at the very least, see them ranked number one for a week. Oh, well. Next year! Go Bears!

Yes, but... I had to pull for my undergrad alma mater, ya see. Khalil Bell and Patrick Cowan and the rest - pretty nice after that stretch in the wilderness. On to Arizona.

And while it is too early to really tell, hopefully Jindal marks a new beginning. It would be good for Louisiana to join the rest of the South.

Me too, Buddy.

It was just like the good old days (when I was in Berkeley) when they couldn't beat UCLA no matter how much better or worse a team they were. Didn't keep me from watching though. Watching Notre Dame get trounced, most weeks anyway, isn't nearly as entertaining as it used to be.

Loner,

There's only one thing one should take seriously in college sports—making sure that Duke loses basketball.

Now, now, MHA --it's the admin & the dirty 88 that deserve to lose, not the basketball players. I may've missed something, tho.

MHA—

It's certainly one of them, but the only one? The really sad thing in these bad new days is that I'd rather listen to the generally pathetic game announcers in any sport at any level than to any politician.

This "Old Blue" just wants to see Cal play in the Rose Bowl. I was one when it last happened. These days I barely mourn when the Red Sox eliminate the Angels.
