We're Number 1!

Wow. 34 days. This is just awesome. And I can almost hear the glee in Bronco-lovin' Shefter's prose.

Seriously, though, what the hell his going on? As Jerry McDonald has pointed out--again and again--this is embarrassing. Why even draft the kid if you're not going to sign him?

Maybe Russell really is like John Elway: He didn't want to play for the team that drafted him #1 overall either, and forced a trade.

Don't get me wrong, I'm getting excited for the season. The Defense is dominating, and Kiffin looks like he has the offense moving in the right direction, and Daunte's been hooked up to the Juvenation Machine.

Maybe this is just Al being a "maverick." Maybe JR is regretting leaving college early and wants to stay in SEC country as long as he can.

But please, for Christ's sake, let's get this over with.
