Over the past 24 hours, the firings of various NFL coaches was the most popular topic among the top sports blogs, in particular the firing of NY Jets coach Eric Mangini. The woes of the Dallas Cowboys continued to be a popular topic, especially from bloggers alarmed by comments from ESPN’s Cris Carter on WR Terrell Owens that if Carter ran the Cowboys he would get rid of T.O. immediately and ‘put a bullet in him’. Various college football bowl games were highly discussed, the Alamo Bowl between Missouri and Northwestern in particular. No. 11 Georgetown’s win over No. 2 Connecticut in men’s college basketball was also a hot topic. Rounding out the top five was bloggers denouncing N.Y. Post columnist Phil Mushnick’s opinion that Fox’s Howie Long jokingly calling fellow analyst Terry Bradshaw a “scumbag” on the air was inappropriate.

Bloggers were also discussing Notre Dame’s close loss to Syracuse and had a negative reaction to ND students reportedly throwing snowballs at ND players and other individuals on the sidelines. Rounding out the Top 5 was surprise that the Oklahoma City Thunder fired coach P.J. Carlesimo after so few games.
