McGair: Born-again Big East still contains plenty of coaching starpower

October 27, 2013

For years, the names rolled off your tongue so effortlessly that it felt like you were on a first-name basis with them. Everything felt so warm and reassuring when discussing certain Big East coaches that mentioning them in the same breath as death and taxes was perfectly acceptable.

Nothing is certain but death and taxes – along with Jim Boeheim coaching at Syracuse. Ditto Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, Rick Pitino at Louisville and Mike Brey at Notre Dame.

SRA-Shea football game could mean playoff berth

October 24, 2013

In terms of playoff ramifications, the significance of Friday’s 7 p.m. Division II-B contest pitting St. Raphael at Shea cannot be underscored.

The stakes are pretty high when you consider the 2-2 Saints and the 2-2 Raiders presently share the subdivision’s fourth and final playoff spot. Sprinkle in a West Warwick squad that’s also two up and two down in league play and it makes perfect sense to label tonight’s Pawtucket-centric matchup as one of critical significance.
