Morehead State University Eagles might have pulled off the biggest upset in this years March Madness tournament when it’s all said and done with but they sure do take the prize for most creative tee-shirts. It also helps to have TALENT like in the above picture wearing it when your school shocks the world.
Number 13 Morehead State pulled off the biggest upset on the first day of the March Madness tournament when the Eagles defeated number 4 seed Louisville 62-61. Down two Morehead State’s Demonte Harper shook off a horrible shooting game (2-10, 0-5 from 3 when he took the shot) and buried the game-winner with less than 7-seconds remaining.
Morehead State coach Tom Hodges made a fashion statement as his lady Eagles lost to the University of Kentucky Wildcats 82-48 last night in their season opener. The wardrobe was provided by LoudMouth Golf, the company that outfits golfer John Daly.
What happens when you start out the gate in the NFL 3-0 and then end up going 1-5 in your next six games, you start looking for a scapegoat. That’s exactly what the New York Jets did when they elected to dismiss (lets not kid ourselves that means fired) their defensive line coach Kerry Locklin. With even ready to proclaim the Jets Super Bowl bound in September and know the Jets free-falling out of the playoff picture, Rex Ryan decided he needed to shake things up.
The once-boastful Jets’ defense has sputtered in the past month. It flopped on Sunday against the Jaguars, who marched 80 yards on 12 plays before kicking the game-winning field goal as time ran out.
The rookie coach also announced that Locklin would not be the only no longer employed by the Jets as they had cut Ahmad Carroll, a very popular special teams veteran. According to team sources, Carroll failed to turn in the required weekly written exam that all players take as part of their preparation before each game.
Ryan and Locklin are long-time friends as the pair first coached together in 1990 when Ryan was head coach at Morehead State University and Locklin was the offensive line coach. Defensive assistant coach Jeff Weeks and Chuck Smith will officially be in charge of coaching the line now.
