What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

Instead of reading the same boring Skins stories over and over again, watch this animated video of Brunell fighting his guts out. Thanks to MisterIrrelevant.

But if you can't help yourself, Al Saunders skips the Marine Corps Marathon to, what, add pages to his playbook? Actually, some plays have been tossed out. Brunell leads the NFL in window dressing, while our favorite Skins blogger recommends Brunell visit the Sackler Gallery, which seems as good an idea as any.

Anyhow, Georgetown adjusts to being the hunted, Rick Pitino calls the Hoyas

one of "two great teams" in the Big East but JTIII says all the teams are even after Pitt, and Jeff Green could be the league's best all-around player. Elsewhere, we have more big talk from CAA coaches, who are thinking multiple NCAA tournament bids even as they continue to celebrate Mason's run, which has Larranaga still in the spotlight. And Karl Hobbs is already convinced his GW team is overrated.

United's Troy Perkins wants to start for the U.S. national team one day, United's Bobby Boswell keeps photos of Ben Olsen on his computer, a Vancouver paper talks about the Caps winning the Stanley Cup (by the end of the decade). Those Caps lead the division in blogs and Joe Sakic says Ovie is "definitely the most exciting player" in hockey, while the club is dogged as a "lower-tier" Eastern Conference team despite being sixth in the East in points-recorded-per-game. Haters. Nats asst. GM Tony Siegle is gone after nearly five years, which could lead to his 24th baseball boss, and the Phillies' AAA manager is enthusiastic about the Nats job, via Venezuela. And I guess this means the Wizards look like an Academy Award?

Funny how the Times doesn't mention that while not playing soccer, he not only boats, but goes to his OTHER job.

Some guy at the Post had a nice article about that this summer......

I may live in Georgetown but I went to Pitt (and Arizona). This is going to be one crazy ass season. Sam Young POY.

Unsilent Majority, nothing personal, but as a Sun Devil, you're now my mortal enemy. =)

That UofA-ASU rivalry is quite intense. Much greater than any I experienced at Maryland, even that Dook hatred. Based on an indoctrination of some ASU grads, I have to say, Go Sun Devils!

My only U of A allegiance is to Salim Stoudamire

Unsilent Majority, you're waaaaay off.

I find the percieved Duke-UMd rivalry interesting in that it's not really a rivalry. It's borne more out of UMd jealousy of Duke, you rarely see Duke 'get up' for UMd events other than basketball.

ASU-UofA is everything. There's competetition from football, basketball, women's soccer, baseball, state funding, exposure, who paints who's 'A' the most.....it permeates everything.

Don't believe any Dookie who says he/she doesn't get up for Maryland. In the big picture, it's not a traditional rivaly, but they are flat out lying if they say they don't care about Maryland.

Do the crowds turn out for a UMd/Duke football game? Is Duke's year a positive is all they do is beat the Terps in anything?

No.

It's a decent basketball rivalry based upon the performances of each team. Other than that, it's not much, especially when you look at the perception of the folks in Durham.

There really aren't that many 'good' East Coast/North East collge rivalries. BU/BC is a good one, UVA/VT has the potential to really boil over now that they're in the same conference.

Oh come on, ASU couldn't touch U of A when they had Ike. Now that we've got Chase it's all over but the crying.

See, now you've dragged me back into the rivalry

ASU can barely touch UofA in basketball.....just the way it is. Somthing to do with Lute cheating, and ASU coaches failing at cheating.....but UofA is just better.

I fondly remember the days sitting behing the UofA bench waving a Fed Ex envelope with dollar bills falling out of it......

And to put my years in perspective, my initial reaction was Ike Austin, not Diogu. .... and I still hate Matt Othick.

Who's Jack???

Posted by: Unsilent Majority | October 26, 2006 2:49 PM | Report abuse

Yeah, seriously, who's Jack? And doesn't he have anything better to do?

Posted by: SportsBog | October 26, 2006 2:52 PM | Report abuse

I don't know Jack.

I get told that quite frequently.
