Gathering of Former Players
I was informed by one of my fellow letterwinners that the Football Letterwinners association will be having a picnic at 3:30PM on April 25th prior to the annual Spring Game. As a result, I would like to modify the plans and invite all former football Scarlet Knights to Athlete's Glenn at 3:30PM.
Please spread the word. It would be great to see everyone again.

A total of 12 former Rutgers University baseball standouts will be playing professional baseball this season. Headlining the group is Eric Young, the starting second baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers, while his former teammate, Angel Echevarria, has signed on to play professionally in Japan's Pacific League.
Young, who hit .280 last season as the Brewers' everyday second baseman, is off to a .385 start through six games in 2003. Echevarria batted .306 in 50 games with the Chicago Cubs last season, but has opted to play overseas in 2003. He signed a free agent contract with the Nippon Ham Fighters on December 15, 2002.

Where are there now?
Rutgers last football Big East victory was fueled by an overtime kick by Lee McDonald, which capped an upset victory over Syracuse at Rutgers Stadium.
Where is he now? He earned his masters at Rutgers and is now an Academic Advisor for the Rutgers football team. In addition, he and former Rutgers punter Charlie Titus hold Kicking Clinics around New Jersey.

Sebastian Telfair is as confident about his future as he is about his crossover dribble.
The 17-year-old point guard from Lincoln High School in Brooklyn can't wait for the challenges and big decisions that are not far ahead.
"I would love to be the first [point guard] to jump to the NBA [from high school]," the junior said before his team won the New York state championship.

At long, long last, Jim Boeheim's mission is accomplished. But Roy Williams' goes on, maybe all the way to North Carolina.
One man's championship smile was another's man bowed head Monday night, when Syracuse used a first half shooting blitz and a desperate second half stand to outlast Kansas, 81-78 for the school's first national title.
Orange slice Jayhawks
Syracuse's long winter of basketball discontent is over. Led by the play of freshmen Carmelo Anthony and Gerry McNamara, the Orangemen won their first NCAA basketball title Monday night with an 81-78 upset of Kansas. Anthony finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds and McNamara scored 18, all in the first half, as the Orange got coach Jim Boeheim his long-awaited title and denied KU coach Roy Williams his.
Anthony, Syracuse soar past Kansas to first NCAA title
Hang on tight.
This one takes a lot of explaining.
This one comes straight out of the "Songs My Coach Never Taught Me Hymnal." In a world of hip-hop fast breaks and turn-the-lamps-down-low-for-bump-and-grind defense, Jim Boeheim's time capsule finally stayed the NCAA championship course.
Finally, Boeheim reaches the title zone
Wake Forest Coach Skip Prosser has emerged as the No. 1 choice of interim athletic director Marc Boehm to replace Ben Howland as men's basketball coach at Pitt.
University officials left New Orleans yesterday, and a source familiar with the search indicated last night that the two parties are very close to an agreement.
Pitt's search focused on Prosser
Pitt senior defensive end Claude Harriott is done for the rest of spring football practice, but will be ready to go by the time training camp begins in August.
Harriott, whose left knee was injured in a scrimmage Saturday, had an MRI over the weekend and was diagnosed with a second-degree sprain. He will not need surgery and is expected to be completely healthy in about six weeks
Harriott has sprained knee
Around the nation
Thanks Chris Rix. Thanks a lot. Thanks for nothing.
Florida State's underachieving quarterback has been blamed for everything else, why not a burgeoning gambling scandal? If Rix had not lost his job, then Adrian McPherson wouldn't have been starting the 12th game of the season against North Carolina State.
Odds are losing still biggest scandal to Seminoles
With the end of the Final Four and the close of another glorious college basketball season, there are always sudden surprises that college athletic directors seem to create that puzzle us more than "Why in the world I am crying to 'A Walk To Remember?'" Just admit it - you cried also. It was sad, alright, she was dying!
Anyway, this spring's first surprise was the "forced" resignation of UNC's basketball coach Matt Doherty. After only three seasons as head coach, the 2001 Associated Press Coach of the Year got the nod to step down.
