    I am with Pittsburgh sentimentally because
    their leading rusher, Willie Parker, went to
    my alma mater, North Carolina.

    Incredibly, he gained more yards this year
    in the NFL (1200-plus) than he did in four
    years in college (800-plus), even though
    he suffered no serious injuries that I know
    of while in school.

    It was a case of lousy decisions by the
    NC coaching staff:

    (from the link):
    Fast Willie didn't have a bad game againt the Colts;
    he didn't have a great one either: 19-57 rushing,
    3-19 recieving.

    I would really like to see him bust a few long ones
    in the next game or two.

    Well, Willie Parker busted one, a long one,
    the longest run from scrimmage in Super Bowl history: 75 yards, TD.

    Way to go!
