It’s been a great weekend and the following are some thoughts from it:

  • Fantastic day at Fellowship Bible Church with Senior Pastor Crawford Loritts. Spoke on Acts 13:1-3 and how God uses diversity to spread the Gospel. I am so excited about how our church is serving and impacting the Roswell, GA community.
  • As you arrived for the service, we had hand sanitizers stationed outside the auditorium doors to protect against the H1N1 flu virus. If this gives visitors a sense of security and allows them to relax and focus on the message and not a potential physical issue, this is a good thing.
  • C.J. Spiller has entered the Heisman race. I appreciate that Tim Tebow is going to be in here because of Florida’s ranking and his pedigree. However, it we judged it on this year alone, here is my list as of this date – 1) Jimmy Clausen 2) Mark Ingram and 3) C.J. Spiller.
  • Though the Miami Hurricanes and Tennessee Volunteers both barely lost, both are going to be serious national contenders in the upcoming years. Miami is loaded with young talent and a Jacory Harris will be a leading candidate for the 2010 Heisman. Tennessee is learning how to win and currently has the #6 ranking in this year’s recruiting class.
  • Everyone talks about the defenses of Florida and Alabama and rightfully so. However, don’t overlook the defense of the Texas Longhorns. The could have 3 first round picks in next year’s draft in Sergio Kindle, Roderick Muckelroy, and Lamarr Houston. Also, safety Earl Thomas will be a 2nd team All-American.
  • Speaking of the NFL Draft, Jonathan Dwyer and Spiller have passed Jahvid Best as 1st round running backs. Look for Charles Scott of LSU to pass Best as well, but all will be in the 1st round.
  • Matt Barkley had the USC offense hitting on all cylinders. They have 6 NFL players starting at the skill positions. Once again, they will be the team you don’t want to play in January.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers defense scored more points than the Minnesota Viking offense 14-10. It is going to be an unbelievable AFC playoff series with the Steelers, New England Patriots, and Indianapolis Colts.
  • In an league driven by parity, I have never seen the NFL have so many bad teams. When you look at the Browns, Titans, Raiders, Chiefs, Redskins, Lions, Buccaneers, and Rams, you have 8 teams that have little to no chance ever week.
  • Did you notice that hot air ballooning got more coverage this week than the NHL?
