    the agency asks: Could you talk a little bit about the progress of Chris Freeman on the field?

    Freeman's spring was nothing short of remarkable. I honestly didn't think he'd ever see the field going into the spring. Now he's second-team at tackle. Really impressive and a great story. Credit to the kid for sticking with things not only to get to Mizzou, but to make himself into a player once he got here. Things can change, but as of today, he's in line to replace one of Missouri's departing tackles (I'd have Freeman on the right side and Meiners on the left) in 2012.

I still think it best if Gabbert "redshirts" for a year, but one has to like the impression he's making so far. I think he was further along than Josh Freeman when he left for the pros, and Freeman didn't take long to turn into a stellar pro quarterback (not even a full year, actually), so hopefully that's a sign of things to come for Big Gabs.

Let's face it: it should have always been named the Potato Bowl.

    C'mon ... Someone has to talk about it. How is ESPN NOT an illegal booster for Texas?
    -- Rob, Seattle

    Of course I laughed when I saw this -- the word "illegal" conjuring images of ESPN execs being led off in handcuffs for starting The Longhorn Network. But in terms of NCAA legalese, he does have a point.

    According to Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com, the core of Texas A&M's argument to the NCAA to ban TLN from televising high school games (the Big 12 has banned them for one year, but the NCAA has yet to make any ruling) is that the network is in fact a "representative of athletic interests" -- i.e., a booster. Citing a 1994 interpretation that "institutional publications" -- all those team-specific print magazines from the pre-Rivals.com era -- fall under the booster umbrella, A&M contends that The Longhorn Network is essentially the same thing, just on television. I can't find fault with that. The fact that ESPN runs the network as opposed to the school itself is irrelevant. Notre Dame doesn't publish Blue and Gold Illustrated, either.

    To be clear, if the NCAA agrees, this ruling would designate TLN as a booster, not ESPN itself. Because if ESPN is a booster for Texas, then it's also a booster for Alabama, Michigan, USC and every other school that receives revenue from its contracts.

1) Yes, SI's Andy Staples has a food blog. He was one of my favorite football guys before, and now he's even moreso. 2) That FIFA glitch is the oddest thing I've ever seen. At least, the oddest since the old early-'90s Madden games when the ambulance would come onto the field to care for an injured player, and run over players in the process.
