Move over Beasely, Mayo, and Love

For all of the talk of Micheal Beasley, Kevin Love, and Eric Gordon, there seems to be one name that is being left out of the discussion for the freshmen that has made the most impact: Arizona States James Harden. Last year the Sun Devils were one of the worst teams in any BCS League, but that has all changed this year.

The Sun Devils growth has been accelerated by Harden and fellow Artesia High School graduate Derek Glasser. The two have lead the Sun Devils to an undefeated start to their conference season.

The great start show that Herb Sendek is one of the best coaches in all of the land. When Sendek was at N.C. State the Wolf Pack Nation could not wait to see him leave the program. Part of the NC State fans did not realize how great a job Sendek did when he was in Raleigh.
Sendek coached NC State to the tournament five consecutive years from 2002 until 2006 (tying the school record). He had his most success during these last five years, winning his 100th game at NC State in 2002 and having a winning conference record in each year but one. But that was not enough as Sendek continued to struggle against the big two of the ACC (North Carolina and Duke).

So thanks to Harden, Glasser and the rest of the young Sun Devils, Sendek is making Arizona State a force in the Pac 10.

Please Come Back Jose

As an United fan, Jose Mourinho was a pain to play against when he was in charge of Chelski. But now the EPL is not the same, there are no managers running around screaming about how fantastic they are.

Jose, I beg you please come back to the EPL.

Training to hold a clip board

All during the playoffs, Brady Quinn has been appearing on our television sets telling us all how great EAS is. During the course of his first NFL season EAS has appeared to help Quinn a great deal, a quick look at his stats shows that: 3 of 8 for 45 yards in the one game that he played in. Not bad for a player that some people called the most ready college quarterback to be in the 2007 NFL Draft.

I guess Quinn has to take EAS after his work out in order to have the strength to carry Derek Anderson helmet and the clipboard. I bet Quinn is really trying to get as strong as his brother-in-law Green Bay Packers linebacker AJ Hawk.

Quinn should continue to follow Hulk Hogans advice and Train, say your prayers, eat your vitamins, and take EAS Myoplex to be the best clipboard holder you can be.

Roy is going to run out Jerseys at this rate

Last week the Wear twins and John Henson pledged to be part of the Tar Heel Nation, this week Roy Williams is at it again as he signed St. Pats' point guard Dexter Strickland for the 2009 class.
"We have seen some stellar recruiting classes, but a four-man class of juniors and a two-man class of sophomores, all of five-star caliber, is on the verge of mind-boggling - especially considering that five of the commitments occurred in a two-week period," national recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer said in a story posted on the site.

At this rate the Tar Heel 2009 class might rank up there with the Fab Five of Michigan and the Felton, May, McCants class that Matt Doherty brought to Chapel Hill as one of the best ever.

There's no crying during the playoffs

There really is no reason for posting this Terrell Owens photo, from the post game news conference yesterday, except for the fact that he is crying like some kicked his dog. By the way did anyone ever see Owens defend McNabb like he defended Tony Romo yesterday?
