Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan didn't hold back when addressing questions about the controversy surrounding his brother last December after a foot-fetish video allegedly of Rex Ryan's wife Michelle surfaced on the Internet. "Aw hell who cares," Rob Ryan said Monday in the Cowboys locker room. "Believe me, everybody has whatever screwed up thing going on. I don't care. I'm sure you do, and everybody else that points fingers." Rob Ryan all but confirmed the video was authentic with his response to a question about being disappointed that the matter became public. He said his brother was freaky. "Naw, I mean hell, he is a little freaky I guess," Rob Ryan said. "Hell, I don't know. I like everything about my wife. She got great feet, too. She got everything nice. What the hell." (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)Comment

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wrote a blog post Sunday encouraging Texas and Oklahoma remain in the Big 12 and downplaying the negative effects Texas A&M's departure could have on the troubled conference. Why? Money. "The big college TV networks -- Fox, ESPN, CBS -- pay for quality, not quantity," Cuban wrote. "They need marquee match-ups that are 'Must Tweet TV.' The number of schools in a conference actually reduce the parity and quality of match-ups in a conference. The networks will not pay up for that." (BlogMaverick)Comment
