    just saw the 'SECond to None' headline on ESPN.com

    can we retire this headline? i'm sure all of us, myself included, that have worked at a paper in sec country have used it. but really, it's not clever. it's become a cliche.

    please add your own to this thread...

    This could be the start of something big

    (There's a paper in my former neck of the woods that would use this at least twice a year)

    Anything with "brass balls" should be retired.

    Though you'd think that would be a given. Sadly, no.

    "Chief concern"
    --If you really want it to, this could probably be used for every single Kansas City Chiefs story ever written. ESPN's fantasy site had this yesterday, belly-aching about Larry Johnson's lack of production.

    "Not in the Cards" when a team named the Cardinals lose a close game.
