Week 9:

William Paterson University was barely a speedbump on Rowan's road to their 14th NJAC Conference title, as the Profs pounded the Pioneers 61-6. Not much to talk about in such a rout, especially when you don't want to offend the missus, an alumna of the routee, so let me just add that Rowan sophomore quarterback Mike Orihel earned his third NJAC Player of the week with 252 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Tomorrow in Montclair the Profs play last year's NJAC champs, the Montclair State Red Hawks. MSU is home to the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, whose name is perhaps the biggest oxymoron in all of academia. A Yogi Berra Learning Center is like a Steven Seagal Film School. Since the Profs have already clinched the NJAC and Montclair, the pre-season favorites, have no chance at even making it to the playoffs, I'd say this is a case where Yogi was wrong: It is over before it's over.

My high school alma mater, Holy Cross High, had a bye last weekend, but they did find out whom they will play in the first round of the Parochial Group 3 playoffs. Tonight in Delran the third-seed Lancers will face the sixth-seed Immaculata Spartans of Sommerville. We're playing a team whose school name is in a dead language. I like our odds.
