Todd BowlesThe New York Jets have wasted little time in replacing recently fired GM John Idzick and Head Coach Rex Ryan, bringing in two New Jersey natives to help right the ship.

Cleaning house on December 29th, the Jets took just a hair over two weeks to name their replacements. Hightstown, New Jersey native Mike Maccagnan takes the reigns as General Manager and Elizabeth, New Jersey Todd Bowles leaves his post as Defensive Coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals to take over as head coach of the New York Jets.

The 51-year-old Bowles is a former defensive back with the Washington Redskins and has spent 15 years an an assistant coach in the NFL. In the 2000 season, he was part of the Jets coaching staff when he coached the Defensive Backs under Al Groh.

The pair have their work cut out for them. Under Rex Ryan last season, the Jets finished last in the AFC East, compiling a record of 4-12. While the Jets for the most part had a solid defense during Ryan’s tenure, they struggled mightily to establish stability and consistency on the offensive side of the ball. A series of Offensive Coordinator and starting quarterback changes failed to improve the team’s production.

The pair of Maccagnan and Bowles bring a renewed sense of optimism to MetLife Stadium for New York Jets fans as they look forward to the draft and training camp with great anticipation.

Earlier this month, Adidas (the NBA’s official on-court apparel supplier) unveiled uniform and apparel designs for the upcoming 2015 NBA All-Star Game. The uniforms pay homage to the game’s host city — New York City.

David Cho, who oversees the NBA partnership with Adidas said, “It’s simple and timeless. It’s a nod to the history, culture and style of New York City basketball.”The uniforms are relatively plain and have many changes from those of previous years.

Since the 1960s, the NBA has had the conference identifiers “East” and “West” on its All-Star Game jerseys, but that distinction is missing from the uniforms this year. Instead, players from the Western Conference will wear black, while those from the Eastern Conference will wear white. Accessories like headbands, arm bands and more will use the traditional color scheme: red for the West and blue for the East.

Additionally, for the first time ever, the uniforms will include the first and last name of the player on the back of the jersey. The first name will be above the number and the last name will be below it.

As of Wednesday when the final out of the 2014 World Series was caught by Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants, Alex Rodriguez’s one-year suspension officially ended. Rodriguez is finally off baseball’s restricted list, and has been reinstated to the New York Yankee’s roster.

Rodriguez, 39, was unable to play the entirety of the 2014 season due to a suspension following Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis case.

A-rod has $61 million and three years remaining on his contract with the Yankees. The deal was negotiated after the 2007 season, and as part of that deal, Rodriguez can earn an additional $6 million if he hits just six more home runs to tie with Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list with 660.

Even despite the heated and long appeals process, the Yankees have no indicated that they will release Rodriguez, but if they did decide to, they would owe him his entire salary regardless. Officials with the Yankees admitted that if A-Rod can still play, then they will take him back for 2015.

According to ESPN, A-Rod will be replacing Jeter as the Yankee’s lead character in 2015.

Fans were heartbroken to learn that Donovan would not be joining Team U.S.A. in Brazil to duke it out in the 2014 World Cup, but this game should serve as consolation! Donovan himself stated, ”You don’t want your last memory to be getting cut from the team, and my family didn’t either, so this will be a nice way to hopefully put a ribbon on my career. And I’m excited to have a chance to say goodbye to a lot of people who have been supportive of me.”

Soccer supporters are eager to see Donovan end his career on a high note, but they are also excited for the future, for Team U.S.A. consists of young talent. The team’s coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, explained, “It’s about building a new hierarchy of the senior national team because after every World Cup, it’s time to start fresh again.”

Over the summer, Rutgers University became an official member of the Big Ten Conference, increasing the Big Ten’s membership to 14 institutions.

Currently, Rutgers is off to an impressive 4-1 start, and will face the 2-3 Michigan Wolverines next. Many expected Rutgers to be among the worst Big Ten teams in its first season in the conference, but the team has surpassed expectations with its surprising record.

It’s exciting, Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said after a 31-6 win over Tulane University. “Playing Division I football games is exciting. Being under the lights is exciting. Having a great opponent is exciting.”

The Scarlett Knights are aiming for their first Big Ten win after falling 13-10 earlier this month to Penn State during the conference opener. That wasn’t the best start for Rutgers, especially for quarterback Gary Nova who threw five interceptions. But he seems to be bouncing back from that. Nova redeemed himself in Saturday’s win over Tulane by throwing 291 yards and four touchdowns. Nova also set Rutgers’ career record for touchdown passes with 60 by connecting a 93-yard pass with Andrew Turzilli.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights will play the Michigan Wolverines at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey on Saturday, Oct. 4, and kickoff is at 7 p.m. The next home game will be on Saturday, Nov. 1 against the Wisconsin Badgers.

Watch as history is made at High Point Solutions Stadium during the inaugural Big Ten season. Order your Rutgers football tickets from SelectATicket.com now!
