Here is the best of the SB Nation network for Tuesday, February 2, 2010:

↵

Football

↵

- At the ripe old age of 25, Shawne Merrimen's best days may be behind him.  Bolts from the Blue digs into what the Chargers should do with their over-the-hill linebacker.

↵

The Mile High Report leads a daring fan revolt over the continued snubbing of Floyd Little from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Rise up!

↵

- The Bengals police blotter as seen through the experienced eyes of Cincy Jungle. Defendant Rey Maualuga, please step forward.  

↵

Basketball

↵

Pounding the Rock has a nice little chat with Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer discussing the finer points of the "pick" in the pick and roll.

↵

- D-leaguer Michael Gansey agrees to blog on Ridiculous Upside and then wins Player of the Week. Coincidence?

↵

- A break down of how to break down Dirk Nowitzki from the break down artists at Blazer's Edge.

↵

College Basketball

↵

- Clemson's vaunted Diamond Press Defense in brilliant and colorful X's and O's by Shaking the Southland.

↵

College Football

↵

- We can thank the BCS for bringing together arch political rivals Orin Hatch and Barak Obama in a moment of anti-trust crusading. A bi-partisan love story from Track 'Em Tigers.

↵

- Debunking a hot mess of sloppy (bleacher) reporting on Pitt's alleged move to the Big Ten from Black Shoe Diaries who perhaps needs to add "Gum Shoe" to their name.

↵

Soccer

↵

- The ratings geeks over at Nielson released a report on sports consumption by U.S. consumers and RSL Soapbox discovers that soccer has a long way to go.

↵

- Egypt beat Ghana to win the 2010 African Cup of Nations and Soccer World Digest is there to provide the geo-political, global-historical context.

↵

Hockey

↵

Light House Hockey goes deep into the math bag to tear apart and then rebuild the Islanders best 5 man line.

↵

Baseball

↵

- A super cool interview with baseball analyst Alex Eisenberg who tells Halo's Heaven all about his secret sauce for finding and ranking the best young prospects.

↵

Viva El Birdos does yeoman's work putting a huge pile of Cardinals Spring Training invitees into bite sized buckets. 

↵

MMA

↵

- What do you get when you mix macho combat sports and Evangelical Christians? Cheesy T-shirts of course. Watch Kalib Run looks at the newest heresy that is sweeping the MMA nation.

↵

- Leave it to the watchdogs at Bloody Elbow to hold the Virgina Athletic Commission accountable to protect fighters in the Old Dominion.
