Boston University announced Friday that it will leave the America East Conference for the Patriot League after the 2012-13 season.

Wetzel on D&C: Sandusky case one-sided

Yahoo! Sports writer Dan Wetzel joined Dennis & Callahan on Friday to discuss the ongoing trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

After the first four days of witnesses from the prosecution, Wetzel said the alleged victims that were called to the stand were very powerful.

“The prosecution, they didn’t rest yesterday, but they essentially did and it only took four days,” Wetzel said. “They thought the trial would go three weeks, maybe a month. Now it may go seven or eight days. So that pretty much tells you what happened. … I just don’t know how you can listen to all of this stuff -- trials are crazy, but how you don’t listen to this stuff and say, ‘This is just one of the creepiest guys and we need to put him away for about 500 or so years.’ ”

Wetzel pointed out that the key to the strength of the witnesses was in the consistency of the...

Mashup: Moss 'a throwback' with Niners

Reviews on Randy Moss' comeback with the 49ers continue to be positive. A report from ProFootballWeekly.com quotes a team insider as saying the 35-year-old former Patriot seems to have a singular focus.

“You can still see the Hall of Fame skills,” the team insider said. “At times, he’s been unstoppable [as was the case on his nifty TD grab on a crossing pattern in a two-minute drill at the end of Wednesday’s mandatory minicamp practice], and he has very much quickly become the leader of the receiving corps. He sits in the front row in team meetings, takes notes and is extremely smart. He still has that major star power, and his teammates definitely recognize that.”

Added Niners offensive coordinator Greg Roman: “He has really been as good as you can possibly ask for in terms of being totally engrossed in football. He’s a throwback. … He’s got his family and football and his faith, and...
