It was the famous media Tuesday before the Super Bowl, and that only gives some of the more egotistical players a chance to truly voice their opinions.  So, while he has practically been quiet all season, it’s never good to put a microphone in front of Randy Moss.  The Niners brought Moss out of retirement and signed him to a one year deal.  They barely used him, but that didn’t stop Moss from telling the media that he was a G.O.A.T., which stands for “Greatest of All Time”.  He said to put his numbers up against Jerry Rice and it will prove he’s the greatest.  Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but if you ask me, it’s pretty sacrilegious to say you’re better than Jerry Rice.

Elsewhere in Super Bowl player news, it looks like Ray Lewis may be in some hot water. Lewis was trying to recover from a triceps injury he suffered on October 14th, and knowing this would be his last season, he desperately wanted a chance to get back on the field before the conclusion of the season.  Now, he’s being linked to an illegal PED that he may have used to help heal himself faster.  After the Lance Armstrong fiasco, PEDs are now the talk of the sports world.  Lewis will play his final game on Sunday and this will likely be a mute point, but no player wants those kind of stories tarnishing their legacy.

And finally, in Texas, when Texas A&M moved to the SEC last season, it basically meant the end of close to a 100-year battle with state rival University of Texas.  Texas won the last contest between them, but that game was sorely missed this season, especially with the emergence of a very strong A&M program under Heisman winner Johnny “Football” Manziel.  (Note:  Manziel was originally supposed to go to Texas, but Coach Mack Brown said he wouldn’t play quarterback there). Now, a state bill (yes, a state bill) urges the two schools to renew their rivalry for both cultural and financial reasons (these games bring in a lot of money for both schools).  We’ll see if both schools are interested in relighting the fire.

    No way, baby. It’s still Jerry Rice.
