Unemployment Extension Tier 5

Unemployment Extension Tier 5 - It appears that the Republicans have answered the call of President Barack Obama to work together on burning issue. But before committing anything they have asked for the Democrats to extend Bush-era tax cuts for the two percent rich for two years.

Initially the Democrats were opposed to it. But now it looks that top leaders in the party are ready to give it another extension for two years.

Vice President Joe Biden is spearheading the campaign to convince other Democrats to agree to the new changes. The VP is expected to visit Senate Democrats, who are opposed to the extension. It is understood that he will try to convince the surly Democrats who say it conceded too much to Republican demands.

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio said: “I’m not at all happy with this. I want to see all the details before I make some kind of commitment.”

Many Democrats are convinced that the President surrendered to the Republicans’ demand. Brown said: "I don't know if he caved. I think he could have gotten a better agreement." But Biden is doing everything possible to end dissension among the Democrats over this issue. Under the plan, he is going to defend the deal in front of liberal Democrats who are girding up to oppose it tooth and nail.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
