After the Cal Ripken experience last week it's difficult to come back to reality and deal with the assorted goodies that sportsworld has dealt us in recent days. The crime report out of Nebraska shows us that Oklahoma and Miami are not the only programs that harbor troubled youth. The stories out of Dallas involving Jerry Jones, Nike, Pepsi, and Deion Sanders remind us just how central money has become in sport. While local heroes show us the arrogance of fame and fortune at the Waffle House.
