Instant analysis of Gators vs. Tigers: The biggest thing I like and it'll more than likely serve them well heading into conference and postseason play: The Gators are 4-2 this season so far in games decided by less than 10 points. They were 0-6 all of last year. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

Storylines for Jaguars, Gators fans: It's all about the Las Vegas Bowl between Fresno State and Southern Cal because of Derek Carr and Marquis Lee (Jaguars) and Clay Helton (Gators). (Hays Carlyon, The Florida Times-Union)

Brent Pease heading to Washington: According to the latest reports, Pease is going to acccept a job on Chris Peterson's staff at Washington. (Phillip Heilman, Gator Bytes/The Palm Beach Post)

Gators adding walk-on kicker: He's a former Army All-American who while playing a year at Virginia Tech has yet to attempt a field goal since high school. We'll see how this turns out. (Zach Abolverdi, The Gainesville Sun)

Jeremy Foley answers questions: The topics ranged from the overall state of Gators athletics to fundraising renovations to the O'Dome. (GatorZone)

Southern Illinois coach goes off: His wife can ball fake! Hilarious.

Speaking of women's basketball: Had to watch about five mintues of the game last night on ESPN. How does anybody like that stuff?

Greatest sitcoms ever: We'll get to dramas and that other stuff another time, but for now we're talking sit-coms only. So unfortunately, Entourage is going to have to wait a little bit.

  • 1) Seinfeld
  • 2) Home Improvement
  • 3) All in the Family (and its spin-off, The Jeffersons)
  • 4) Friends
  • 5) The King of Queens

Seinfeld is No. 1 and it's not even close. That show is just pure greatness. Perfectly cast, perfectly acted and perfectly written. Home Improvement comes next even though Jill Taylor's character got annoying every now and then. Who doesn't like MORE POWER?

All in the Family was very solid (though I liked watching The Jeffersons as a kid more) and Archie Bunker's chair is in the Smithsonian, which is enough for me. The Jeffersons were part of the trio of shows I watched late at night before going to bed growing up on TV Land. Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie were the other two.

Also, because I'm not quite 30 years old, my list is going to feature more recent shows than those that are considered all-time classics like I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners, but hey, it is what it is.

Friends and The King of Queens round out my list.

Just missing the list were: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved by the Bell, Happy Days, Gilligan's Island, ALF, The Munsters, The Wonder Years, and the aforementioned Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie.
