“Nah, I’m going back to Cherokee [Casino Resort]. I think maybe my luck has changed, so it’s time to hit those slots.” — John Daly on whether he would practice after Thursday’s round at the PGA Championship
TWT FIVE: FIVE MUST-SEE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYERS
1. Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii — He is not just another system guy for coach June Jones. He is a likely first-round pick in April.
2. DeSean Jackson, WR, California — He could be the best receiver in the country, and he’s definitely the best return man. Just watching punters try to kick away from him could be entertaining.
3. Javorski Lane, RB, Texas A&M — At 265 pounds, he is the “Thunder” to Mike Goodson’s “Lightning,” and a nightmare for Big 12 tacklers to bring down.
4. Juice Williams, QB, Illinios — Dual-threat quarterback can make magic happen — for either team. His top WR could be freshman Arrelious Benn, a Dunbar grad.
5. Beaver State running backs — In a season chocked full of fantastic runners, Oregon’s Jonathan Stewart and Oregon State’s Yvenson Bernard are great but under the radar.

The Redskins should send a message now: Cut Brandon Lloyd.
The malcontent receiver has been as big a bust as now-departed safety Adam Archuleta was and on top of that, he threw his helmet during a game last year. Lloyd admitted that this offseason was the first one during which he ever really worked out, and the result has been that he has missed half of training camp with shin splints.
The Redskins have plenty of cap room. Even if they give tight end Chris Cooley a big contract, they have the cap room. Lloyd might be a gifted athlete, but he’s not a standup guy in the locker room. Corey Bradford, Jason McAddley, Mike Espy or any of the other backup receivers can score zero touchdowns as well as Lloyd and for a heck of a lot less money and aggravation.
Cut Brandon Lloyd now.
