“The Reality Check” Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 20 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

They never got to leave the bottom spot. Sad story.

31. Houston Texans (29)

The Houston Texans are #31 in the power rankings. Andre Johnson plays for them. JJ Watt plays for them. OMG.

30. Atlanta Falcons (28)

The Atlanta Falcons are #30 in the power rankings. Matt Ryan plays for them. Tony Gonzalez plays for them. OMG.

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ranked ahead of teams not named the Jaguars. OMG.

28. Washington Redskins (27)

But some defense would be nice.

27. Minnesota Vikings (26)

Remember when Percy Harvin played for them?

26. Oakland Raiders (30)

The same record as the Ravens. Really.

25. Tennessee Titans (22)

Would be in great shape if they had a quarterback.

24. St. Louis Rams (24)

When they get back from the bye they still won’t have a quarterback either.

23. Buffalo Bills (25)

Not worth jumping from the top of a stadium over.

22. San Diego Chargers (19)

Too many games against the West for me to think they can get to nine wins.

21. Green Bay Packers (18)

I believe Don Majkowski is available.

20. Baltimore Ravens (17)

A HUGE nine days.

19. Cleveland Browns (16)

Still the Cleveland Browns.

18. Miami Dolphins (20)

I don’t believe it.

17. New York Giants (23)

They might win nine games.

“The Reality Check” Week 11 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 13 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

The good news? They won. The bad news? So did all of the other bad teams.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Same issue.

30. Oakland Raiders (26)

Pick up Rashad Jennings, they said.

29. Houston Texans (27)

I picked them to go to the Super Bowl. No. Really.

28. Atlanta Falcons (24)

28th, y’all. 28th.

27. Washington Redskins (23)

I mean, that’s just awful.

26. Minnesota Vikings (30)

So Jared Allen is still pretty good.

25. Buffalo Bills (21)

I’m sorry I ever got a good feeling about them.

24. St. Louis Rams (29)

I have no idea what to make of that. None.

23. New York Giants (28)

Totally in the NFC East mix.

22. Tennessee Titans (19)

So…does Jake Locker get another year?

21. Pittsburgh Steelers (25)

I think I’m going to say “Pittsburgher” out loud and giggle again.

20. Miami Dolphins (16)

But they might finish the season at Number 30.

19. San Diego Chargers (15)

Good news-Miami next.

18. Green Bay Packers (12)

J.R.R. Tolkien should make a hell of a quarterback.

17. Baltimore Ravens (22)

KNOCK IT DOWN!

“The Reality Check” Week 10 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 06 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

You know all of those “lost their bye week” jokes? So…the Jaguars…they actually did, right?

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

I don’t care that they had a lead. They stink.

30. Minnesota Vikings (30)

Another primetime game! Yay!

29. St. Louis Rams (29)

Hey but there’s Zac Stacy and all.

28. New York Giants (28)

So which crappy running back plays this week?

27. Houston Texans (27)

A one week moratorium on making fun of them obviously.

26. Oakland Raiders (24)

Can the Ravens cancel any of their games to schedule the Raiders’ pass defense as a replacement?

25. Pittsburgh Steelers (23)

Could you imagine if while we were going through this, the Steelers were having a good season?

24. Atlanta Falcons (22)

What week? You know…what week does Matt Ryan get an “elbow injury”?

23. Washington Redskins (26)

MAYBE on their way back? MAYBE?

22. Baltimore Ravens (14)

Not a good football team.

21. Buffalo Bills (19)

TuelTime was actually kinda exciting.

20. Philadelphia Eagles (25)

Very plausible playoff team. Honestly.

19. Tennessee Titans (21)

Would I want Kendall Wright in a trade for Jordan Reed?

18. Cleveland Browns (20)

I still can’t believe that happened.

17. Arizona Cardinals (17)

I watched roughly as much Cards football on their bye week as I have every other week.

“The Reality Check” Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 30 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

I should not be forced to have to say something about them every week.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Mike Glennon might be auditioning for jobs elsewhere.

30. Minnesota Vikings (30)

Jared Allen is going to look really good not winning games the rest of the season.

29. St. Louis Rams (26)

That loss might have been the highlight of the season.

28. New York Giants (29)

Somehow…some way…not done.

27. Houston Texans (27)

Why do I feel like they might not be done either?

26. Washington Redskins (25)

How many more games does RGIII leave early this year?

25. Philadelphia Eagles (23)

Nothing about this team is fun to watch.

24. Oakland Raiders (28)

Terrelle Pryor however remains fun to watch.

23. Pittsburgh Steelers (21)

I gave them too much credit for beating a team that isn’t very good.

22. Atlanta Falcons (20)

If Matt Ryan is as good as everyone says he is, he survives the loss of his receivers.

21. Tennessee Titans (22)

Maybe now we’ll see some Kenny Britt?

20. Cleveland Browns (19)

Oh God. Please no.

19. Buffalo Bills (17)

Did you know Mario Williams was already in double digit sacks?

18. Miami Dolphins (16)

They were 3-0.

17. Arizona Cardinals (24)

A defense that is SO much better than you realize.

“The Reality Check” Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 23 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week: 32)

So…ummm…Mike Brown is a thing question mark.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Mike James. Don’t act like you don’t know his name.

30. Minnesota Vikings (29)

“Josh Freeman is still our quarterback because aww f*ck it. Wait…he’s hurt? Well then we’ll start Ponder. Because, again, aww f*ck it.”

29. New York Giants (30)

It was neat to flash all the way back to the guy that was on the cover of Madden two years ago.

28. Oakland Raiders (28)

They had a bye? I had just assumed they played and no one cared as usual.

27. Houston Texans (22)

I know this is hard to believe for a team that I dropped five spots to #27, but they actually showed some things.

26. St. Louis Rams (21)

But at least Janoris Jenkins had a neat weekend!

25. Washington Redskins (27)

They beat a team playing Josh McCown. Wait, was it Luke? No, it was Josh. Or Cade McNown. I don’t know.

24. Arizona Cardinals (17)

So…maybe not so much on the Carson Palmer experiment then?

23. Philadelphia Eagles (18)

Michael Vick’s return will allow Matt Barkley to conduct their band I guess.

22. Tennessee Titans (19)

Better with Jake Locker back-perhaps not soon enough to save anything.

21. Pittsburgh Steelers (26)

But the team they beat Sunday wasn’t really all that good.

20. Atlanta Falcons (24)

HARRY DOUGLAS MANIA!

19. Cleveland Browns (16)

And if Jason Campbell doesn’t work then…I don’t know, Troy Smith?

18. Carolina Panthers (25)

They’re probably about to inexplicably lose to a terrible team again, right? Who’s next on the schedule?

17. Buffalo Bills (23)

Is their a greater disparity between NFL locales than Buffalo and back to back trips to Miami and New Orleans?

“The Reality Check” Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

When you watch the documentary about the 2013 Jags, the highlight will be halftime of last week’s game.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Does the MRSA outbreak even end up in the Top 5 worst things to happen to them this season?

30. New York Giants (30)

They’re on Monday Night Football because ESPN is dying for you to find out what “The Blacklist” is all about.

29. Minnesota Vikings (27)

Oh-also they really wanted you to see an episode of The Voice, too.

28. Oakland Raiders (26)

They beat the Chargers?

27. Washington Redskins (23)

But their Special Teams Unit is number 6.798,544,213.

26. Pittsburgh Steelers (29)

Please tell me this wasn’t the start of them becoming the Steelers again.

25. Carolina Panthers (28)

There’s no in between with them, is there?

24. Atlanta Falcons (24)

Please Harry Douglas. Please Harry Douglas. Please Harry Douglas. Love, former Julio Jones fantasy owner.

23. Buffalo Bills (22)

Matt Flynn will definitely throw for 400 yards at some point this season, right?

22. Houston Texans (21)

They actually can’t get worse, can they?

21. St. Louis Rams (25)

So wait, is Zac Stacy a thing?

20. New York Jets (19)

It would be SOOO Jets for them to beat New England Sunday.

19. Tennessee Titans (18)

Jake Locker’s injury will be an undernoticed major storyline to the season when it’s over.

18. Philadelphia Eagles (20)

Nick Foles definitely starts every game the rest of the way, no?

17. Arizona Cardinals (15)

The good news is that Seattle doesn’t have a Vernon Davis.

“The Reality Check” Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 02 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

Hey! Thanks for your tackle! Any tight ends or receivers you’d like to send along too?

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

You think Greg Schiano called Bobby Petrino for tips on how to sneak out in the middle of a season?

30. Oakland Raiders (30)

More wins than the two teams ahead of them, less good players.

29. New York Giants (22)

My buddy Gregg Rosenthal from NFL.com just keeps telling me that if you took the names of the back of the jerseys you’d think they were the Jags.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers (24)

They’ll still be winless next week.

27. Minnesota Vikings (29)

Their only win is over one of the worst teams.

26. St. Louis Rams (20)

Sam Bradford kinda makes you long for the days of…I dunno…Marc Bulger?

25. New York Jets (26)

Good news. They’ve left the door open for Matt Sims.

24. Arizona Cardinals (25)

Perhaps they could make a trade to get Brian Hoyer back?

23. Washington Redskins (23)

They beat the Raiders. That doesn’t move them up.

22. Philadelphia Eagles (19)

I’m so stupid I once had them in the Top 10.

21. Carolina Panthers (21)

1-2 doesn’t seem so bad all things considered, does it?

20. Buffalo Bills (27)

Still kinda in denial.

19. Cleveland Browns (28)

Finally NFL Network gets a good game Thursday night.

18. Atlanta Falcons (13)

They’re better than this. They are.

17. Dallas Cowboys (14)

About right.

“The Reality Check” Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 26 September 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

More vile than the “Teen Mom” turning her private parts into a sex toy.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (30)

Is it too late for Greg Schiano to throw his name in for the Texas job?

30. Oakland Raiders (28)

Matt Flynn might throw for 400 against the Redskins.

29. Minnesota Vikings (25)

I heard that next year they’re going to play a NFL game in London!

28. Cleveland Browns (31)

We live in a strange world.

27. Buffalo Bills (26)

Still likely a tough test Sunday.

26. New York Jets (29)

Not buying it.

25. Arizona Cardinals (24)

At least they have all of their finge…nevermind.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers (23)

This is really bad team.

23. Washington Redskins (22)

This is also a really bad team.

22. New York Giants (17)

This is a really bad team as well.

21. Carolina Panthers (27)

That’s a hell of a win over a really bad team.

20. St. Louis Rams (19)

But you don’t get the feeling they can’t beat San Fran.

19. Philadelphia Eagles (15)

They should be thankful there are a lot of bad teams in this league.

18. San Diego Chargers (18)

Given all of the bad around the league, I won’t drop them for a loss.

17. Detroit Lions (21)

Big test with Chicago coming to Ford Field.

“The Reality Check” Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 18 September 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

I assume the Jacksonville CBS affiliate is going to have to start running apologies too.

31. Cleveland Browns (31)

Bigger issue: missing a wide open throw to Chris Ogbonnaya or counting on major offensive contributions from Chris Ogbonnaya?

30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28)

It’s certainly much more the whole “assh*le coach hates the quarterback” issue than the “lost on two last second field goals” issue.

29. New York Jets (27)

I scrambled to grab Bilal Powell in my fantasy league only to remember I had just grabbed Bilal Powell in my fantasy league.

28. Oakland Raiders (30)

Congratulations on your win*.

(*Obviously I don’t have to explain why a win over the Jags gets an asterisk.)

27. Carolina Panthers (24)

Gene Chizik is available and has prior experience with high paid athletes.

26. Buffalo Bills (29)

And we’re going to need a little more of you, CJ Spiller. (Signed, guys who have you in three different leagues.)

25. Minnesota Vikings (22)

Wins aren’t going to start getting easy any time soon.

24. Arizona Cardinals (26)

Should I bench Cam Newton for Carson Palmer in New Orleans?

23. Pittsburgh Steelers (20)

22. Washington Redskins (18)

Can Kirk Cousins play defense?

21. Detroit Lions (21)

The bad teams are so bad that a loss to the Cardinals doesn’t drop them.

20. Tennessee Titans (23)

Or for the Titans to lose but move up three spots anyway.

19. St. Louis Rams (19)

Or for the Rams to lose and stay put you get the picture.

18. San Diego Chargers (25)

For reals?

17. New York Giants (15)

Either Eli Manning or Cam Newton will get a win. Or they’ll both get ties. I could use a new tie.

Towson welcomes UNC Wilmington for Autism Awareness Night Monday

Posted on 03 February 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON HOSTS UNC WILMINGTON ON “AUTISM AWARENESS NIGHT” MONDAY
Tigers Seek Third Straight Win Over the Seahawks

TOWSON, MD. - The Towson men’s basketball team will be seeking a season sweep of UNC Wilmington on Monday as the Tigers host the Seahawks at the Towson Center at 7 p.m.

The game is part of “Autism Awareness Night” at the Towson Center. Autism groups including Itineris, Pathfinders, Autism Speaks, Kennedy Krieger, and the Hussman Center will be in attendance to provide information to fans in attendance at the game.

Members of the Towson men’s basketball team and coaching staff will be wearing special royal blue (the color of Autism Speaks) shoes provided by Under Armour.

Towson (11-12, 6-4 CAA) picked up their lone win of the year last season at home against UNCW. The Tigers also topped the Seahawks earlier this season in Wilmington, N.C.

Towson is coming off a 68-66 win at Old Dominion Wednesday night in Norfolk. Junior forward Jerrelle Benimon posted 21 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in the victory. Benimon is one of only three players in the nation to have three games this season with 20 or more points and 15 or more rebounds.

UNC Wilmington (8-13, 3-6 CAA) has dropped three of its last four games, including a 71-56 loss at Delaware on Saturday. The Seahawks are just 1-11 away from home this season.

Monday’s game can be heard live on the Towson Sports Network with Spiro Morekas and Vince Angotti calling the action.
