Feuds Of The Week
First of all, allow me to clarify. This isn't a comparison of actual ability, but rather which sex's game is now more compelling.
For the past 10 years or so, every tennis analyst spoke of how bored they were of the big serves and quick points on the men's side and conversely, how in love they were with the wide range of personalities on the women's side.
Turn on the U.S. Open, though, and you're likely to find that things have shifted back to the men's side. The biggest rivalry in the game is there (
On the women's side, you have the excellence of the
The week before the Michigan football season begins should be a crazed, exciting one for everyone involved in the program. Well, too bad for you Maize and Blue.

Naturally, the topic of the open U.S. Senate Seat has come up, and of all the names to be tossed around, the one that has seemed to generate the most news is .. Curt Schilling?
Schilling hasn't exactly squashed the story, saying he has "interest in the possibility."
