Scorecard (Nov. 22) claimed that Cedric Benson of Texas had scored a touchdown in 36 consecutive games, an NCAA record. But it's hard to keep up such a scoring streak when your team is shut out, as the Longhorns were earlier this year against Oklahoma (12--0). For the record, since your note appeared Benson has scored a touchdown in one more game to extend his actual NCAA-record to having scored a touchdown in 37 nonconsecutive games.

Why-o, Why-o, Why-o
So Carlos Boozer likes Utah and the system there (A Moving Experience, Nov. 22). That's nice. He has a great wife who "fulfills him." That's swell. Carlos and CeCe have a house in the hills. Great. He scored an extra $27 million from Utah, above the $41 million the Cavaliers had offered after voluntarily letting him out of a contract worth only $695,000. Interesting. If that house of his has any mirrors, I wonder what Carlos sees when he looks in one? Utah plays in Cleveland on March 15, 2005. Carlos will be booed unmercifully. He will deserve it.

Return to Glory
Thanks for the article on the Green Bay Packers' resurgence (Look Who's Back on Top, Nov. 22). Yes, at times it seems like 1996 again--at least until the defense takes the field.

Under the Influence
Michael Phelps says he made a "mistake" in driving a vehicle while driving under the influence (Scorecard, Nov. 22)? This type of "mistake" costs thousands of lives every year. A mistake is wearing striped pants with a plaid shirt. DUI is a deliberate act.
