Surprisingly, Browns still division’s best
As bad as the Browns have been for the past couple of decades, they are still the best team in the AFC North, at least when it comes to all-time winning percentage.
- The Browns’ .549 all-time winning percentage (485-398-13) is best in the division
- Baltimore is at 535 (128-111-1)
- Pittsburgh is at .520 (541-499-20)
- No surprise, the Bengals bring up the rear at .435 (286-372-2)
So they have that going for them, which is nice. Hopefully the new regime of Mike Holmgren, Tom Heckert and Pat Shurmur can get the team back on a winning track before those numbers drop.
Oh dear, this isn’t good.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel was informed that several Buckeyes players were selling memorabilia more than eight months before the school claims it was made aware of the scheme, a two-month investigation has found.
Tressel received information that players were selling items to Edward Rife – the owner of Fine Line Ink Tattoos in Columbus – as early as April 2010, according to a source. However, neither Ohio State nor the NCAA investigated the transactions or the players’ relationship with Rife until December 2010, when the school claims it was informed of the situation by the local United States Attorney’s office.
Oh boy. If this is true, we hope Tressel doesn’t hurt himself falling off his high horse.

And we are supposed to care what Tebow and Stoudemire think, why?
