Cheers•To Big 12 offenses. Six of the 12 offensive players on the AP All-America team came from Big 12 schools, and only two were seniors (Kansas State flanker Jordy Nelson and Missouri tight end Martin Rucker). Life won't get any easier for Big 12 defensive coordinators. •To the All Sports Association, which is inducting Eddie Sutton into the All College Hall of Fame. Good move. Good way to entice the reluctant Sutton to come to the Oklahoma State-Oral Roberts game, in which his sons will square off as coaches.
Jeers•To the PGA Tour's selection of Steve Stricker as comeback player of the year. Nothing against Stricker, who had a solid season, but he won the comeback award last season. Exactly what did he come back from in 2007?
