Astute observations:

• Theory: Cordarrelle Patterson to running back. Truth: Idiotic. Ty Montgomery has great feet and vision. Patterson is fast in a straight line.

• Headline: North Star College Cup to end. Truth: If it had been named "The Herbie,'' as I suggested, it would've become our Beanpot.

• News item: Miguel Sano admits he was not in shape for success in 2016. Truth: I told ya last March.
