BC Ends Top-Ranked Syracuse’s Undefeated Season with Huge Upset

Boston College handed #1 Syracuse its first defeat of the 2013-14 season, a 62-59 overtime stunner at the Carrier Dome on Wednesday. The win ended a five-game losing streak for a BC team that has only won two games in Atlantic Coast Conference play this season, both against Virginia Tech. It was an emotional victory […]

College Football Week 14 Roundup: BC, UMass Lose Season Finales

Boston College, 31; Syracuse, 34 Boston College finished the regular season with a 7-5 record after a loss to Syracuse (6-6) at the Carrier Dome that ended the Eagles’ four-game winning streak. Like the previous week’s win at Maryland, this one came down to the very last play, but this time BC found itself on […]

Celtics in the D-League: the first five games

On Sunday, the Celtics’ second-round draft pick, Kris Joseph, played his fifth game for the NBA Development League’s Maine Red Claws, scoring 21 points in a 103-90 win over the Canton Charge. First-rounder Fab Melo also made his fifth D-League appearance on December 6 so, with that milestone out of the way, let’s take a […]

Who is Steve Gregory?

If you watched the Patriots slaughter the Jets on Thursday night, there is probably a series of questions that have been on your mind. One question is, “who is Steve Gregory and where did he come from?” Well I know I certainly had to find out for myself after his wonderful performance on Thursday. Where […]

2012 NFL Draft: Potential Patriots – Defensive Line

As the 2012 NFL Draft approaches, the New England Patriots have some glaring needs. One of those needs, as many will agree, is at Defensive End. With the losses of Mark Anderson and presumably Andre Carter, the Patriots will need to fill the void left by their two best pass-rushers. The Patriots have never truly […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 9): Baylor Enters Into Top 5

1. Syracuse (60) Last week was business as usual for the Orange. They opened the conference slate with walk throughs against Seton Hall and DePaul. Things will get a little tougher this week, with games against PC and No. 20 Marquette. No one gets through the Big East unscathed, so Syracuse’s first loss should come […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 8): Baylor Defeats Paul Quinn

1. Syracuse (54) The Orange played the eclectic duo of Bucknell and Tulane last week, and they will get started with Big East play this week. They will play a school almost exclusively associated with Big East basketball (Seton Hall) as well as a school that people often forget is in the Big East (DePaul). […]

Basketball AP top 25 (Week 7): Syracuse Continues to Roll

1. Syracuse (53) Solid win over NC State. I talked last week about how I didn’t think they were deserving of the No. 1 ranking. While they aren’t the best team in the country, they’ve done nothing to dissuade me from thinking they deserve to be No. 1 right now. They’ve done everything they’ve had […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 6): Indiana Marching Along

1. Syracuse (51) Do they really feel like the best team in the country to you? I would take a handful of teams against them on a neutral court. This No. 1 ranking is more a product of the schedule and other team’s losses than anything. The Orange are a Top 10 team, not a No. […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 5): Kentucky Continues to Roll

1. Kentucky (47) Did you see the Kentucky-UNC game?!?! It was ridiculous. The amount of talent on the floor was absurd, and I was transfixed the entire time. I don’t think there’s anything I can say that’s not already been said, so I’ll leave it at this: this season I’m rooting for whatever will lead […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 4): Look Out For the Rebels

1. Kentucky (46) The Wildcats continued to roll through significantly less talented teams last week, and that allowed them to step into the top spot after UNC lost. UK’s supremacy may not last long though – the two teams play on Saturday. 2. Ohio State (17) The Buckeyes played North Florida, VMI and Valparaiso last […]

Basketball AP Top 25 (Week 3): Pittsburgh Panthers Fall

1. North Carolina (62) The Tar Heels didn’t do much this week. There were no games on aircraft carriers, just a sound victory over Mississippi Valley State, Jerry Rice’s alma mater. It wasn’t much of a test for them. 2. Kentucky The Wildcats, however, beat a really good Kansas team. They also had solid wins […]

What to Watch For: The Fall of Auburn and the Rise of Syracuse?

As the regular season nears the finish line, the overall bowl picture becomes clearer by the week. Last week we witnessed Alabama, Utah and Oklahoma all see their potential BCS bowl game bids get shattered. However, this weekend should be an uneventful one for college football, minus a couple of conference games by the No. […]
