Is Manning Really Retiring?

first_imgBy the time this article appears, Peyton Manning is supposed to have announced his retirement.  If it hasn’t occurred yet, it is certainly supposed to happen this month.  Why wouldn’t Manning select this time to retire?  After all, the Super Bowl victory was the 200th win of his career.  It also was his second Super Bowl Championship.  He is a 5-time league MVP and has led two different teams to those Super Bowl titles.Peyton is 39 years old and has had major surgery on his neck.  I would think he would want to get out while he can still walk.  I don’t think he could ever find a better time than now to step down.  There are no real goals that he hasn’t achieved unless he wants to beat Tom Brady’s record.  At his age, this is a dream, not a reality.Happy Retirement to Peyton!last_img read more

Syracuse drops to No. 13 in final NFHCA rankings before NCAA tournament

first_imgAfter a loss to No. 5 Louisville in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament, Syracuse fell one spot in the weekly NFHCA/Penn Monto Division I Coaches Poll from 12 to 13. Five days after beating the Cardinals by one goal in the season finale, the Orange crashed out of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The No. 13 Orange (12-6, 3-3 ACC) sit four spots behind No. 9 Princeton, who SU faces in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday in Storrs, Connecticut. SU is ranked No. 10 in RPI and has beaten three top-five teams – Louisville, Duke and Connecticut. Those three wins proved enough to earn SU a spot in Connecticut’s quarter of the bracket. If Syracuse defeats the Tigers on Thursday, it’ll rematch the Huskies, if the hosts can get past the winner of Fairfield and American. The last matchup between the former Big East rivals came down to penalty strokes, even though UConn outshot the Orange by 16. Freshman Sarah Sinck stopped every shot, diving from post-to-post to keep SU in the game. In total, she made 11 saves, including six across both overtimes. Now, SU might have to face the Huskies again on the same field. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on November 12, 2019 at 8:04 pm Contact Adam: adhillma@syr.edu | @_adamhillman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
