Alabama 42, Notre Dame 14, Katherine Webb 139,000: My Top 10 CBS ContemplationsAnd put a sock in it Texas A&M fans. Yes, you beat the Crimson Tide. But you also lost 2 games, in the SEC. You have zero claim to a National Title. Stupid Aggies. None.
NFL Wild Card Weekend: My Top 10 CBS Contemplations Were you as nauseated by Ray Lewis’ last dance as I was? First of all, his pre-game show was downright silly. I mean, with all the smoke and fire and Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” and the plot of grass for some kind of perverted prop.
Whitt's End: 1.4.13You’re probably not going to like this, but the Cowboys’ season was a success. Yep, even at 8-8 and missing the playoffs. How’s that? Because after training camp I forecast Dallas as 8-8 talent that with a fortunate bounce or two could top out at 9-7.

Whitt's End: 11.23.12 2 signs of the Cowboys’ Apocalypse on Thanksgiving at Cowboys Stadium: 1. Out of confusion, Tony Romo ran a quarterback sneak on 1st-and-10 with his team trailing 28-6; 2. Out of boredom, a female fan below the press box was actually knitting.
Whitt's End: 11.16.12Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Cowboys’ draft class sucks. Can’t call it a bust yet, but you can say every player drafted back in April – except for Morris Claiborne – is a disappointment.
Cowboys 38, Eagles 23: My Top 10 CBS ContemplationsIt wasn’t pretty, but it was pertinent. Somehow, some way, the Cowboys had to win this game.
