By George Ofman-

(CBS) The bell has rung. Class is in session. Professor Trestman’s students better listen, particularly, Mr. Cutler. You too, Mr. Webb.

***************

Just curious but where is Lovie Smith these days? And Brian Urlacher? More importantly, do you care?

***************

Ryan Braun: cheater, liar, stinker. I wrote back in February I really wanted to believe this guy but the evidence against him was overwhelming. If I was Alex Rodriguez, I’d get a shovel and start digging. If I was Bartolo Colon I’d be prepared to jump into that hole, though, there might not be room for the other cheaters.

***************

If you’re a member of the Blackhawks Stanley Cup team, how embarrassing is it you were not selected to attend an Olympic camp?

***************

Amazing how many tweets I received after the Matt Garza trade. There were many of them comparing Mike Olt to Kevin Orie. Please get a grip! And then there were a few who roasted Kris Bryant upon making three errors in his first game. They called him a bust, kind of like Ryne Sandberg going 0 for his first 40 something as a Cub was a bust. Cubs fans are an interesting lot. And a lot of them aren’t interested in sensibility. Some probably think trading Alfonso Soriano to the Yankees isn’t sensible. Sometimes, I just can’t take it.

***************

If Alshon Jeffery can learn the nuisances of running a patterns without interfering with his defender, he might make Cutler look better than he is.

***************

Devin Hester will race a cheetah. I’m taking Hester figuring the cheetah will pull a hamstring.

***************

Ed O’Bannon might go down in history as the man who busted the NCAA. Presidential Medal of Honor?

***************

You have to wonder how the White Sox, who had the best defense in the majors last season, are in the bottom third this year. Paul Konerko said “I don’t think anyone saw this coming.” Just how many outs an inning do you want to give the opponents? The Sox put a punctuation mark on their season by committing four errors Tuesday night. You really have to wonder how a team could make so many base-running blunders. Seems these days you to have “pickoff” on your résumé to be on this roster.

***************

While RGIII is cleared to practice, he won’t to play in the Redskins’ preseason. This guy desperately wants to test the surgically repaired ACL he tore last January. Meanwhile, Derrick Rose was running around Europe selling shoes. That’s a good way to test your knee.

***************

Here’s an idea: That hotel the Cubs want to build the neighborhood is railing about… turn it into a halfway house for those Cubs fans that don’t get it.

***************

Better yet, scrap the plan, build a three-story walk up and name it Tom Tunney Place, only with no rooftop.

***************

Aren’t you glad he’s the Dodgers problem now? Carlos Marmol made his debut with them and promptly gave up a double, single and then… a home run. His line: 1 2/3 innings, 3 runs, 4 hits, one walk and of course, one wild pitch.

My line: That’s all she wrote.
