Rantsports.com - Looking across the game of baseball, it is hard to find a coaching staff more important to a team’s success than that of the Diamondbacks this season. You could even argue that Kirk Gibson and company were one of the biggest reasons for Arizona shocking the baseball world and making the playoffs this season. 1147 days
Sportige.com - The 2011-2012 NHL season is nearly upon us, as the Boston Bruins hope to make a successful title defense. As usual with most leagues, we open the record books to check out and see if there’s any chance of a non Canadian in the top 10 players with the most points in NHL history (clue – there is, just one) and is anyone even remotely close to Wayne Gretzky (nope). 1147 days

Leonard Johnson - The penalty on LJ in the second quarter killed the Cyclones. The defense was about to get off the field only trailing by 13 points. Instead, Johnson got called for a penalty after head-butting WR Jaxon Shipley. On the very next play, David Ash hooked up with Mike Davis for a long touchdown. That sucked all the air out of the team and Jack Trice Stadium.
Tinyurl.com - Jack Trice hosted its second largest crowd tonight. It was the FX Game of the Week, Gus Johnson was on the call. It was a beautiful day and night in Ames. The Cyclones would be ranked if they could knock of the Longhorns. It had the makings of being a big night for the Iowa State program but the thoughts of being ranked and undefeated quickly disappeared. 1147 days
