Saturday--January 28th, 2012

Emil Igwenagu and the Senior Bowl will be at 4:00 pm on the NFL Network. Set your DVD if, (as Mrs Blog and I are doing), you are going to the UMass hoops game this afternoon.

Emil's Senior Bowl bio here.

The Senior Bowl is sold out.


Liam Coen and defensive players from the CAA talk about Victor Cruz's days in the CAA.

ESPN's Blog says Cruz is trying to emulate Wes Welker.

During the NFL lockout, Cruz got a call and looked at the ID; it said Eli Manning was on the line.


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says many local recruits are choosing MAC schools.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- says Rutgers is interested in Temple's Steve Addazio.


Off topic, but today's basketball game between 15-5 UMass and 16-4 St. Louis should be a good one. Since we moved to Jaffrey, Mrs. Blog and I try to drive down to Amherst to see some of the weekend hoops games. Over the last few years, we haven't seen many  wins. Today would be a good one to break the streak.

This WEEI article mentions the game and has video of Raphael Putney's Dr. J-style dunk.
