Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

November 20, 2009

This week’s start/sit column is a little different as I decided to rank 130 players because the bye weeks are now over. It took longer for me to write, but there’s more information and hopefully you will find it useful when setting your team lineups this weekend.

Huskies This Weekend

November 20, 2009

The men’s basketball team came out of the gates on fire against Siena before stalling in the second half in a 59-53 loss. The team will look to earn its first win of the season against another tough opponent, Utah State, at Matthews Arena at 12 p.m. at Matthews Arena on Saturday.

Other Notes:

  • Men’s hockey (4-5-0) will duel with Providence College once at Matthews and once in Rhode Island.
  • Football (2-8) will end it season in Rhode Island when he Huskies take on URI at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
  • Women’s hockey (8-2-2) has gotten off to a hot start and will travel to Providence to take on Providence College Friday night at 7 p.m.
  • CAA Rookies of the Year, Devin Petta and Don Anding, were named to Top Drawer’s All-Rookie team for men’s and women’s soccer.

Why We Should Be Praising Bill Belichick

November 20, 2009

We all know by now that there are many differing opinions on Bill Belichick’s decision to go for it on fourth and two Sunday night against the Colts. Here is my take on the decision.

Week 9: Pats in Review

November 11, 2009

This past weekend the Patriots stifled the latest Dolphins’ attempt to trick them into defeat with a 27-17 win at Gillette Stadium. The Pats got big contributions from Tully Banta-Cain and Brandon McGowan on defense and the usual Tom Brady and Randy Moss on offense.

Check out my Five Thoughts article from the SoB blog to see what I took away from the game.

Women’s Soccer Starts CAA Playoffs Today

November 6, 2009

The Northeastern women’s soccer team begins its quest for a second CAA Championship in as many years today when the Huskies take on the Dukes of James Madison at 5:30 p.m. today. It is the first time the team has hosted a playoff game and the fans should come out tonight to support what a special season the team is having.

Other Notes:

  • Devin Petta dominated the CAA Awards Banquet last night as she was named CAA Player of the Year and CAA Rookie of the Year. It is the first time anyone in the CAA has taken both awards in the same season. Coach Ed Matz was named CAA Coach of the Year and the team also boasts one player on the All-CAA first team (Devin Petta), two on the second team (Sandra Magnusdottir, Stephanie Gordon) and one on the third team (Kristen Blake).
  • The men’s team will finish off their season tomorrow at Parsons Field when they take on VCU at 6 p.m.. Currently the Huskies are tied in second with William & Mary and both teams will most likely face each other in the CAA Semifinals next weekend at UNC Wilmington.
  • The men’s hockey team also has a big weekend as they take on cross town rivals Boston University and Boston College this weekend. The Huskies will face #7/5 BU in Matthews Arena tonight at 7 p.m. and will travel to Chestnut Hill, Mass. to face #16 Boston College on Saturday at 7 p.m.
