Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

January 21, 2009 | Glenn Clark

It will be bittersweet to see Rex Ryan introduced as Jets head coach today; but I am very happy for him. I understand the Ravens’ desire to promote from within; but if they choose to go that route; I would lean away from Vic Fangio. Fangio is not a “Ravens” guy, he’s a Harbaugh guy. I don’t mean he doesn’t BLEED purple; I mean he wasn’t brought up on the Ravens’ system. If you are choosing to keep hire within to try to maintain Rex’s system; it would be better to hire one of Rex’s guys.

Check out my blog from last night’s game for my thoughts on the Terps’ win over Virginia last night.

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-Congratulations to SunTrust Athlete of the Morning Sam Murray from St. Paul’s Girls Basketball team. She scored 18 points last night in a win over St. Mary’s; and St. Paul’s is now 19-0 on the season despite playing without 3 of their starters.

-JMU 65, Towson 60. This was a BRUTAL game at the Towson Center; and might not be much better in Harrisonburg; except I don’t think the Tigers can make a miracle run at the end.

Talk to you tomorrow.
