BU Defenseman Brandon Fortunato To Transfer; Is Boston College A Possibility?

Terriers’ junior D is transferring out of BU Boston University rising junior defenseman Brandon Fortunato has elected to leave the program, as an influx of talent has pushed him down on the Terriers’ depth chart. With Fortunato, BU had 9 D on the roster, including several high NHL picks, so this makes life a bit more simpler for David Quinn.— Mike McMahon (@MikeMcMahonCHN) July 29, 2016 Fortunato is a skilled puck-moving defenseman who came in to BU as an 18 year old after two years with the USNTDP and immediately became a part of the mix on the power play, putting up 17 assists...

I Hope This Makes You Smile.

Mike Sadler was a great athlete, student, and Spartan. If that’s all he was remembered for, it will barely begin to cover his legacy. The Sunday memorial to Mike Sadler at Spartan Stadium is gonna be tough. He was truly a Spartan great both on and off the field. He was a starter for four years, was the first MSU player to be a four-time Academic All-American, was headed to Stanford Law School in the fall. He looked destined for success in every way a success can be quantitatively and qualitatively measured. And if he's remembered for that, that would tell a sliver of his story. Those...

Recruiting Radar: Miami vs. Alabama heating up on the recruiting trail

A rivalry that was once waged on the field of play, Alabama and Miami have positioned themselves to have many battles on the recruiting trail. For those who may have missed it, 4-star WR Jerry Jeudy (Deerfield Beach, FL) committed to Alabama last night. Jeudy, who was not contacted by Miami until the new staff was hired (thanks, Al Golden), is arguably the top WR recruit in America. And, while he said Florida "probably finished second" in the race for his commitment, this is another instance of Alabama beating Miami for a player that the Canes wanted. In previous recruiting cycles,...

Syracuse Football: It Doesn't Matter Who Wants the Job, Only That They Do a Good Job

A lot of people seem to be telling head coaches not to take the Syracuse job. That's okay because we know better. You can excuse Syracuse Orange football fans if they suddenly felt like nobody out there really seems to think much of their head coaching position. Last week, the guy who actually holds the title, Dino Babers, told an NBC Sports radio show that "a lot of people" told him not to take the job when it was offered. "A lot of people told me not to take the Syracuse job. Only one person told me to take it and that's a person I listen to as lot. That was Art Briles." In Thursday's...

10 Questions for 2016 #8: Malik Foreman & Rashaan Gaulden Step Into the Spotlight

I’m trying to remember a scenario similar to Rashaan Gaulden’s at UT: player makes an impact on special teams as a true freshman, is penciled in as a starter with a ton of buzz going into his sophomore year, then gets injured and is lost for the year in fall camp. This isn’t his fault, but I feel like I’m treating Gaulden’s play in the secondary as a sure thing when we really haven’t seen a meaningful snap from him back there. At the close of last season it seemed certain safety was going to be Tennessee’s biggest question mark in 2016 with Brian Randolph and LaDarrell McNeil...

38 days to FSU football: National award winners face off for top ‘Nole No. 38

Some big names top the list. It’s a tricky vote today, as a pair of greats at their respective positions headline the competition. Florida State football is growing ever closer, and this could be a pretty close vote as well. We start with place kicker Sebastian Janikowski. Of the elite Seminoles to have captured countrywide position awards, the Polish Powder keg is the only to have won one in back-to-back years, as he captured the Lou Groza Award in both 1998 and 1999 (he’s still the only kicker to have ever earned the award in consecutive seasons). Janikowski was one of just seven...
