November! Football! Also Formula 1!
Another fall weekend means more opportunities NOT to leave that couch of yours. With Thanksgiving getting closer and your fantasy football teams in mid-season form, let's dive into the NFL. But don't forget about the college kids! And I'm not just talking about the gridiron. Friday night ESPN3 will air the beginning of the Andrew Wiggins era at the University of Kansas.
When you're a rising star in this league as Colin Kaepernick surely is, uneven performances can be magnified -- particularly when you have a losing record.
The 2011 Draft produced six starters, 2012 produced five (with Nick Foles almost making it six) and 2013 has produced two. This means that 13 positions have turned over in three years -- an incredible development at the most critical position in football.
Can we still do something as big as create a 21st-century clean power economy?
Colin Kaepernick dazzled spectators and opponents throughout the 49ers' run to Super Bowl XLVII. In the world of art, Kaepernick's success in football has helped spotlight two up-and-coming artists who similarly dazzle viewers of their work.

Dear Mr. Whitley: Are tattoos and blackness seen as inseparable? Or does ink mean something depending on the body it is attached to? You defend your words by highlighting the negative stigmas associated with tattoos. Yet your column perpetuates that stigma.
With a defense that ranks near the top of every statistical category -- a defense that Jerry Rice told HuffPost was "unquestionably the best in the NFL" -- the choice for Harbaugh essentially comes down to risk. Smith will rarely hurt you but he will rarely win games either. Kaepernick, at least thus far, seems to be the home run hitter who is also willing to hit singles when needed. In other words, the best of both worlds.
