It's true!

I'd heard that, whenever someone moved from Wisconsin to Minnesota, the average IQ of both states goes up.

Or was that Texas?

Maybe, but today I saw evidence that it is, in fact, Minnesota.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Like most in the football world, Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has watched with interest as the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre appear headed to a messy divorce.

While there has been some speculation that Favre would be a good fit to make one more title run with the Vikings, Childress says he remains committed to third-year quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

Childress tells The Associated Press that "it's been interesting to watch" the contentious interactions between the rival Packers and Favre.

But the coach also says he "can't waste a lot of energy" thinking about Favre becoming available. He also says he thinks Jackson is going to be a winning quarterback.
Childress, you'll remember, was an offensive coordinator for the Wisconsin Badgers before taking the Vikings job.

He wants us to believe that he’s “committed” to Jackson when they might have a shot at adding Brett Favre to that defense and that running game (If they’re willing to give up a dozen draft picks)?

I couldn’t even remember Tarvaris Jackson’s name before reading that story. Neither could anybody else who doesn't get paid to follow the Vikings.

If Childress thinks we're gonna believe that, he's been hanging around those Minnesotans too long.
