Derek Anderson loses it at a pretty conference after a reporter badgered him for daring to crack a smile during a loss.

So was the bird okay?

I like that Derek Anderson clip. Good for him. Like to see a little passion there. That reporter was out of line.

More discussion about whether Sid the Kid is a dirty player after an apparent slewfoot on Ryan Callahan of the Rangers.

Sources have told CaneSport that details are being hammered out and, barring a last minute glitch, Jon Gruden will be the next Miami coach. Nothing but Twitter talk by sportswriters as of yet, but I'd bet this gets confirmed by a lot more people soon.

Gruden coaching college and not the pros? They must be paying a lot.

"By the way, how do such rumors as the Jon Gruden-to-the-University-of-Miami get such legs? Right down to the $3.4-million average salary, it never made sense. And there it was, all over the media at 9 Sunday night, just waiting to be knocked down."

A post that mentions this phenomena.

Jon Gruden will also be on this list even though he hasn't coached any college football in 20 years, his offense is insanely complicated, and we all saw what Bill Callahan's tenure at Nebraska was like with mostly the same playbook. Oh yeah, and right now THIS GUY is already getting two paychecks (from the Bucs and from ESPN) and would have to take a massive pay cut to return to coaching.
