In the era of the Bow Championship Series and the increasing number of underclassmen leaving early for the riches of the National Football League, it was thought to be nearly impossible for any College Football program to create a "dynasty" of sorts. The closest thing we had seen in the BCS Era was the Miami Hurricances from 2000-2003, which should have won 2 championships if it weren't for Willis McGahee's knee getting torn to shreds and official Terry Porter making a questionable call in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl against Ohio State. Before that, you'd have to look at Nebraska from 1994-97 under head Tom Osborne, when the Huskers won 3 National Titles in a 4-year span.
The 2013 regular season for the New York Mets began with news of Johan Santana needing to have a second surgery on his throwing shoulder, putting him on the disabled list for the entire year. In a very strange way, it is only appropriate that a season of high hopes for the future of the organization came crashing down with troubling news this afternoon about their new star pitcher.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) head football coach Ralph Isernia has announced that seniors Ted Abriel and Joe Cozzolino have been chosen by their teammates to serve as captains for the 2013 season.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton has announced the hiring of Dan Laughlin and John McDowell to the football staff. Both will assume responsibilities coaching the offensive side of the ball under head coach Ralph Insernia and offensive coordinator Kevin Trigonis.
After injuring his right thumb during practice a few days ago, New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl said he didn't think it was anything too serious and that he could play through the pain by simply wearing a cast. But after second thought, according to Giants.com senior writer Michael Eisen, Dr. Robert Hotchkiss has decided it is in Diehl's best interests to have surgery, which will bench him for about six weeks.
As time rolls along with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez behind bars for the alleged murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, new developments continue to arise in a separate case that could lead to more trouble for Hernandez. Massachusetts State Police have revealed that a firearm discovered in the midst of a random traffic accident investigation this past June has been linked to a double murder in 2012 that police are already investigating Hernandez for.
When I take a look at the two men I am questioning in this debate, I honestly never thought I'd have to ask this question. The track record speaks for itself with Albert Pujols - he was the ultimate model of consistency for a decade with the St. Louis Cardinals and one of very few players I would have ever considered giving the kind of money he eventually received from the LA Angels, which was $240 million over the course of a 10-year deal.
It took 3 months, but I guess the phrase "better late than never" applies here. On Sunday, the New York Jets finally reached a contract agreement for their top pick from April's draft, cornerback Dee Milliner out of Alabama...
We have officially entered the second weekend of the Saratoga meet, as we celebrate 150 years of horse racing in the "Spa City." This weekend features some terrific stakes races, including the usual tune-up for the Travers, which is today's Jim Dandy.
I can recall a number of things from my childhood, growing up as an avid sports fan, notably for the New York Yankees. I remember "The Flip Play" by Derek Jeter in the 2001 MLB Playoffs against Oakland, the Yankee Stadium heroics during the 2001 World Series Scott Brosius hitting a big homer off Trevor Hoffman in Game 3 the 1998 World Series against the San Diego Padres and Carl Everett stealing Mike Mussina's potential perfect game at Fenway Park.
On Monday afternoon, I heard Bruce Jacobs discuss how one of his dogs got "skunked" over the weekend and he doesn't understand how someone is supposed to keep tomato juice in their house to cure the stench. He also dealt out some trash talk for Atlanta Braves fans, in preparation for this week's 4-game series at Citi Field.
