Road kill: BC blown out by Wolfpack

North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 328 yards and three touchdowns as Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien finally got a measure of revenge on his former employer in a 44-17 blowout of the BC Eagles in Raleigh, North Carolina on Saturday.

 

After starting the season 2-0, BC suffered its third straight loss in their largest margin of defeat. The BC defense was unable to find an answer to Wilson, who was 38-of-51 with two interceptions, one by linebacker Mark Herzlich.

 

The biggest storyline of the day was O'Brien, looking for his first win against Boston College, since leaving after the 1996 season. BC had beaten him in three previous encounters before Saturday.

 

The Eagles started quarterback Dave Shinskie who regained his starting posistion after an injury to freshman Chase Rettig and a poor performance by Mike Marscovetra left Spaziani with no other option. Shinskie had another...

TO: 'Disappointing' to see Moss dealt

Terrell Owens thinks the Patriots did Randy Moss wrong.

The Cincinnati wide receiver told the Associated Press that New England’s decision to trade Moss to Minnesota should be a signal to every other player around the league that they are “expendable.”

“Trust me, I know [Tom] Brady is a great quarterback, but if you look at the numbers he’s put up with Randy, they’re very, very impressive,” Owens said. “And I think a lot of guys should look at this from a standpoint of it is a business. So you have to go out there and do whatever you can for your family and for yourself because when it comes to management and owners, they don’t care about you. That right there showed that they feel you’re expendable.”

Owens said that much of Brady’s success can be attributed to having Moss as one of his receivers. Brady agreed to a four-year extension at the start of...

Reds look to '04 Red Sox for 'some action'

CINCINNATI -- Less than 24 hours after his team committed four errors in a 7-4 meltdown at Citizens Bank Park – booting away a realistic chance of beating the powerhouse Phillies in the NLDS – Reds manager Dusty Baker summoned the words and the spirit of Terry Francona from 2004. 

 

Orlando Cabrera and Bronson Arroyo, who reportedly will have his $11 million option exercised by the Reds for 2011, are the members of the Reds who were on that 2004 Red Sox team. 

 

"Arroyo was in Boston when they were down 3-0 in a best-of-7, and they came back and won four,” Baker recalled. “The hardest thing is to win one. And you win one, and you got yourself some action. And we’ve got our backs up against the wall, but this club performs well with our backs up against the wall. That’s the kind of club we have. I wish we didn’t always have our backs against the wall, but, you know, we...

Tony Gwynn diagnosed with cancer

Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gywnn told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he has been diagnosed with cancer of a salivary gland. The 50-year-old Gwynn told the paper he suspects chewing tobacco was the cause for the condition, which will now lead to two months of radiation treatments (5 times a week), and chemotherapy once a week. "They say this is a slow-moving but aggressive form of cancer," Gwynn told the Union-Tribune from his Poway home. "I'm going to be aggressive and not slow-moving in treating this." For more on Gwynn, click here.

Doc on Miami rumors: 'I'm not going there'

There has been speculation that Doc Rivers would be Pat Riley's first choice if he were to make a coaching change at some point with his new South Beach juggernaut. Rivers downplayed that Saturday. "I’m not getting into that," Rivers said. "The only guy on [Riley's] list is Erik [Spoelstra] and that’s the only guy that should be there. I’m not going there."  

 

As for his own future, Rivers reiterated that he is taking it one step at a time. "I’m year to year," Rivers said. "That’s how I am. The question asked was where else would you rather go? And I don’t think there’s a better place than here. It’s a great set-up and it is phenomenal."
