Freshmen Filled Future: A Look Ahead

March 24, 2011

Steve Lavin is "pumped" for his 2011-2012 recruiting class

 

An overall successful season for the St. John’s Redmen Red Storm left a bad taste in the mouth of the fan base as the team fell victim to the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the first round of The NCAA Tournament.   It was the first time since 2002 that St. John’s had earned the right to compete for a national championship, a notion that seemed like a fantasy about three months ago.  Nevertheless, the quality wins kept mounting, and the nation’s top teams kept falling, and The Johnnies captured the hearts of many en route to an NCAA Tournament bid.  Despite many frustrating moments, fans like myself will never forget the 10 graduating seniors, as they returned St. John’s to the forefront of college basketball. 

But as the saying goes, all “good” things must come to an end.  It’s now time to turn the page and welcome the number two ranked recruiting class in the country, as Steve Lavin has branched out to all coasts to secure the top talent available.

The Jets and Giants are now on the clock….

April 19, 2010

 

The NFL Draft has gotten so big that it was moved to primetime this year and will commence for the first time ever on a Thursday.  The 2010 draft class has been pegged as the deepest ever, and both the Jets and Giants enter the free-for-all with areas of need.  The Jets will look to improve their defense, particularly the pass-rushing department as well as secondary depth and the Giants will look to build up the line-backing unit as well as depth for the secondary and offensive line.   

I have mapped out the top five players on each team’s radar, as well as three others to look out for.  Nevertheless, predicting who will do what has grown increasingly difficult as there are more trades and maneuvers than ever before.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Winning Time: A Bittersweet Trip Down Memory Lane

March 15, 2010

The MSG Demon

As I awaited the debut of Dan Klores’ 30 in 30 production, “Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks”, I didn’t know what to expect.  Was this going to be a Reggie love fest?  How were the Knicks going to be portrayed?  However, by the end of the documentary, I was thoroughly pleased.
