Knights in the Pros
First of all, before anyone gets carried away with another 250-pound-plus bulldozer of a tight end who made his mark in North Jersey, L.J. Smith is the first to say he's not the reincarnation of Jeremy Shockey. And, despite his size, range and outstanding hands, don't confuse Billy McMullen with the San Francisco All-Pro Terrell Owens.
At the same time, Smith, the Eagles' second-round pick from Rutgers, has just as high expectations for himself as did the flamboyant Shockey
Smith, McMullen hope to carve niche
Everyone in football saw the magic that can happen when you combine a tight end's body with a wide receiver's game and come up with a guy like Jeremy Shockey -- who only changed everything for the New York Giants offense last year.
The Philadelphia Eagles felt the impact as much as anyone, getting a handful of the revitalized Giants offense and their Rookie of the Year twice in 2002.
Birds hope Smith can 'Shock' NFL

Around Big East
Temple football fans who are frustrated by the inability of the university to strike a deal with the Eagles so their Owls can play in Lincoln Financial Field can let their feelings be known.
There now is a Web site, www.TempleFansCare.com, that enables concerned parties to send a message to Howard Gittis, chairman of Temple's board of trustees. They can basically become part of an electronic petition urging him, as the site says, "to support his recent words of support for the football program with real action." This not only applies to the stadium issue, but the future of the program as well.
Web site gives Temple football fans chance to let school know they still care
Around the nation
During Tuesday's teleconference among a collection of CEOs from non-BCS schools, Buffalo President William Greiner called the BCS "classic cartel stuff" and compared the BCS to John D. Rockefeller's oil monopoly in the 19th century.
But his best line of the day was this: "There are some people who are, or think they are, the 'haves.'"
'Have-nots' don't have a clue
Rick Neuheisel's lawyer hopes to make the NCAA accountable for what he claims is the organization's "rush to judgment" in the firing of the Washington football coach.
Attorney Bob Sulkin requested a meeting Monday with NCAA officials and University of Washington vice president Norm Arkans. Afterward, the school plans to announce its resolution of Neuheisel's appeal.
Attorney hopes to make NCAA officials accountable
The meeting took place in Hartford in the early 1980s. Joe Paterno, then Penn State's athletic director as well as its football coach, was arguing for the formation of an all-sports Eastern conference. Dave Gavitt, then commissioner of the newly formed Big East, and John Toner, then the AD at Connecticut, wanted Penn State to join their league for basketball.
"We said no. We were only interested in an all-sports conference," Paterno recalled during an interview Thursday at the annual Big Ten Conference media sessions in Chicago. "It didn't take a genius to see what was going on."
