Thanks for explaining exactly why TCU didn't belong in the BCS title game. Despite having an entire month to prepare for their only matchup against a team that finished in the Top 25, the Horned Frogs still only beat Wisconsin by a measly two points, due in part to a missed Badgers field goal. Let's face it: The Frogs ended up playing in the bowl that their schedule earned them.

As I was reading Peter King's playoff preview, I couldn't help but notice that Tom Brady expressed interest in playing football into his 40s. Maybe he's cutting himself a little short. With the league seemingly creating a new defensive penalty every time a star quarterback gets injured, why not shoot for 50?

The Size of It

Can someone please explain to me how Patriots tackle Vince Wilfork made it onto the cover of SI simply for weighing 325 pounds, while the UConn women's basketball team had just completed a 90-game winning streak?

Super Slight

When looking over the bracket of the greatest moments in Super Bowl history (Decisive Moments, Jan. 10), I was shocked that the 100-yard interception return for a touchdown by Steelers linebacker James Harrison at the end of the first half of Super Bowl XLIII was not included. In addition to being the greatest defensive play in Super Bowl history, it changed the whole feel, and outcome, of that game.
