1. Former Fresno State President John Welty let his Athletic Director Thomas Boeh do all the sports talking and program cutting. Not new President Joseph Castro, who keeps standing at the front of the stage when it comes to possibly bringing back the wrestling program Boeh axed. Is it just me, or is someone getting a little overruled in the new regime? After all, no one's inviting Boeh to flip coins at local wrestling meets.
2. Peyton Manning is an all-time great, win or lose, period. Anyone who says Super Bowl rings define the greatness of the quarterback need to explain why Eli Manning has two. And Dan Marino has none. While we're at, I'll take Brad Johnson for $500, Alec.
3. New rule: if you complained that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman would not shut his mouth on national TV when they beat the 49ers, you forfeit the right to complain that Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch said virtually nothing during Super Bowl week. Football players do have the right to remain silent.
