A sign of the times

December 3, 2009

Wayne Chrebet's alma-mater is dropping its football program

Hofstra University is dropping its football team, citing high costs and low interest from the college community.  

“The money is not coming in, and we’re putting too much out,” said university president Stuart Rabinowitz.  “The choice was painful but clear.”

He continued to add that low attendance, poor support from boosters, and overall costs of running a football program factored into the decision.  The announcement follows a two-year review of sports spending at Hofstra. Rabinowitz says there are no plans to cut any other sports at the Long Island school.

The long Rhodes back

November 30, 2009

Kerry Rhodes celebrates with Revis and Eric Smith after catching his second interception against the Panthers.

Head Coach Rex Ryan went from demoting safety Kerry Rhodes, to hugging him after Sunday’s win against the Panthers.

Rhodes, who played in only nickel and dime packages this week after starting since his rookie season (74 consecutive games), responded with two interceptions in the Jets’ 17-6 victory at The Meadowlands.

Revis Island: Do not enter

November 29, 2009

Darrelle Revis had two interceptions, including one for a touchdown

Darrelle Revis was the entire offense for the Jets most of the game, as he got the defense into the end zone for the first time this season. 

Revis returned one of the Jets’ four interceptions 67 yards for a touchdown as New York held on to beat the Carolina Panthers (4-7) 17-6 on Sunday. The Jets kept their slim playoff hopes alive, thanks to solid play from a defense that held Carolina to 176 yards of total offense.   The Jets won at home for the first time since beating the Titans in week three.

Jets looking to slay two-headed Monster

November 27, 2009

DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will be tough to contain

The Jets, losers of 6 of their last 7, still have a lot to play for, and no I’m not talking about the playoffs.  With six games remaining, Gang Green may be on life support when it comes to their playoff chances, but they have a rookie QB who has some things to prove. 

Mark Sanchez became the first rookie Quarterback to win their first three games.  He was the talk of the town even before that, showing up at all the New York City hot spots, and doing a GQ spread before he ever did anything in the NFL.  Sanchez was anointed the second-coming of Joe Namath before even taking a snap.

Happy Feet Sanchez backpedaling

November 23, 2009

In today’s Newsday, Wallace Matthews remarks that Sanchez is regressing instead of progressing.  The Sanchise is coming off another five turnover game, and in the article Matthews states:

“Ten games into his pro career, the game is not slowing down for him, it is speeding up. Never did he look more like an overmatched rookie than on his fourth and final interception – but not turnover – of the day, when under pressure from three Patriots defenders, he blindly flipped the ball downfield like a man hoping to persuade a pack of hungry pit bulls to play “go fetch.”

Giants resuscitated, Jets remain on life support

November 22, 2009

Eli Manning had a career day against the Falcons

Despite another meltdown by the shaky Giant defense, Lawrence Tynes kicked the G-men to a 34-31 victory, keeping the Giants in good position for a playoff spot.  The giants snapped their four-game losing streak, and Eli Manning threw for a career-high 384 yards.  Eli added three touchdown passes, including two to Kevin Boss.  The Falcons (5-5) have lost four of five after a 4-1 start.  With the win, the Giants became the first home team to win in the series since New York beat Atlanta in 1979. The visiting teams had won 12 straight in the series, and the Falcons gave it a good shot at making it 13 in a row.

This weekend in the wild world of sports…

November 21, 2009
NFL, NHL,College Football,Hocks, UFC!…what do I watch!…jdizzle will tell you

Saturday-

12:00 pm Michigan vs. Ohio St.—Yes, this game does not have the hype surrounding it as it once had, but it is still once of college’s greatest rivalry’s and if Rich Rodriguez is to stay in Ann Arbor he knows what he has to do today:  Not only win, but win convincingly.

1:00 pm Knicks vs. Nets—Hey, somebody’s gotta win.  Knicks and Nets don’t deserve high fives…

7:00 pm Panthers vs. Rangers- Rangers had a tough week of practice.  Henrik Lundqvist and Gaborik can not do it by themselves.  The Rangers will need help from Kotalik, Del Zotto, and the Captain Chris Drury who returns after suffering a concussion on November 7th.  Dubinsky will be out, so someone is going to have to help Gaborik out offensively otherwise the Rangers could start sliding quick.   

7:30 pm –  Cal vs. Stanford- Stanford over the last two weeks have put up ridiculous offensive numbers against  USC and Oregon, two of the best teams in the conference.   With a win against 25th ranked Cal and losses by Oregon, Oregon St, and Arizona in the remaining games can give the Cardinals a Rose bowl birth.  Gotta root for the geeks, sorry folks.
