You know that Football is tantalizingly close when all the pre season publications, online and off, try to justify their existence by making outlandish claims. In this case it's about Rutgers being one of the favorites to take the Big East's spot in 2012. And I don't see it. Its not because Rutgers isn't talented, because they are. But they rival South Florida in their ability to choke away games in big moments. Beyond that there is the coaching factor. Greg Schiano, like Sisyphus, never completed getting that boulder up the hill, and I have little faith that Kyle Flood will be able to complete that job in year one. So in short I have no idea what people are going on about with Rutgers this year. They aren't so talented that a rookie head coach can't royally muck it up.
The Track and Field team had a respectable showing at the east Regional in Jacksonville. The Women's 4x400 meter relay team set a school record clocking in at 3:37.6. Unfortunately that wasn't enough to advance out of the Region. Three Bearcat women did punch tickets in their individual events. Kathy Klump has the eight fastest time in the 800 heading into the championship. Michelle Eby qualified 22nd in the Pole Vault and Freshman Emelie Larsson has the 15th best mark in the Javelin. Jasmine Cotton pre qualified for the NCAA's and didn't partake in the Jacksonville meet. The National Championships begin on June 6th and run through the 9th at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa
UConn Refugee Roscoe Smith has landed at UNLV...mentioning Roscoe Smith means I get to link to this...and this...based on last night the Heat are a safe bet to reach the finals, very safe...its now OK to say that Men In Black 3 is a failure given its bloated budget...China has really got a handle on capitalism because nepotism is running wild in the streets.
