It's that time of the week, time to take a look at what SB Nation is saying about stories of local interest:

First, Edgerrin James will be inducted into the Colts Ring of Honor this Sunday when the Colts play Jacksonville. Next stop Canton. Regardless, Stampede Blue has a nice retrospective.

The Indycar season is over, and legendary broadcaster Bob Jenkins is retiring. Here's what Pop-Off Valve has to say about it.

So here we are, basking in the afterglow of a dramatic finale to a great season. It is a good note for Bob Jenkins to go out on, that's for sure. The veteran broadcaster is retiring to spend more time with his wife, who has been ill for some time. Still, he got to announce that his friend Ed Carpenter had won the final race he called, and he also got to see Ryan Hunter-Reay crowned as champion. Bob Jenkins means the world to me because of his career and because of who he is. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word, and his career puts every American race fan in debt to him for raising the profile of racing in the United States. No one deserves a happy retirement more than Bob. I'll miss him greatly - it truly is the end of an era.

Finally, college football around here is a little dull this week, with IU and Purdue both on the bye, but Michigan and Notre Dame will renew their annual grudge match on Saturday night. Here's Maize n Brew's preview.
