The Morning Run

Ok, we messed up. Totally forgot to post anything on Monday. So that's why today's Morning Run is our apology letter to you. We're sorry. To make up for it, today's edition will be super sized and you won't even be charged 79 cents for it. In this economy, it's a big deal when you can save money anyway you can.

To prepare for Delaware, Rutgers went up to scrimmage UMass. It may have been a non-starter for most Rutgers fans, but the two programs have similarities. The Minutemen are starting to build a pretty good program themselves, and its because of Derek Kellogg.

ESPN's Page 2 has 65 reasons that college basketball is great. My favorite is #36, click on the link.

I have a soft spot in my sports heart for guys who focus on the fundamentals. I love dunks and threes, but a well run pick and roll is art to me. That's why it's saddening to read the news. A patriarch of the game passed away yesterday. Pete Newell will be missed.

If mothers didn't want their kids playing football, this might be an even tougher sell. MMA is coming to a high school near you.

Danny and I were talking about this on Saturday, Buffalo coach Turner Gill is doing a heck of a job up there in NY. Now people are noticing. Not really going out on a limb here, but I wouldn't put money on him returning to Buffalo for a 2009 season.

Connecticut football coach Randy Edsall to Syracuse about their new job opening: Thanks, but no thanks

ESPN's Brian Bennett says that Syracuse and Greg Robinson were never meant for each other.

Georgetown holds off Jacksonville to start their season. Greg Monroe has a nice debut.

Gonzo may be at it again. Adam Zagoria reports on his blog that the Seton Hall coach is going a little crazy, threatening to revoke Zag's media credential. A must read for any tri-state college basketball fan.

A talk with his coach is what sparked Mike Teel's turnaround, reports Tom Luicci.
