We've run with Ralphie at Colorado. We've flown with the parachute team at Army. We've ridden the Sooner Schooner at Oklahoma. We've crammed a lifetime's worth of game-day experiences into one season. And it's been a treat at every stop along Page 2's Tailgate Tour.

Page 2's Jim Caple can live with the mediocre record and the uninspired play. He can even come to grips with the bottom-feeder bowl bid. But he can't get next to the rest of Washington's embarrassing behavior. So what's a loyal alum to do? Stop showing the money to athletic director Barbara Hedges.

Hollywood Jock Ugliest Uniform Bracket
As Page 2's Rob Ryder peddles his script, he gets the good ol' Hollywood Run-around from a showbiz entrepreneur named Pookey. Still, it beats the Hollywood Jock's nightmare experience on the set of "Blue Chips."

For his cheap KO of teammate Marcus Williams during practice and a lame apology a couple of days later. Not to mention that positive test for THG.

As Jerry Glanville once said, "NFL stands for 'Not For Long.' " As in the winners and losers don't stay that way for long. So, has parity helped the league ... or has baseball surpassed pro football as our No. 1 sport?

The members of the Writers' Bloc certainly can't agree on the answer. In fact, they're even dragging NASCAR, hockey and -- gasp! -- soccer into the discussion.
