Jets Coach Trips Player

Jets Coach Trips Player - It may be viewed as unprofessional for a National League Football coach to trip a player from the opposing team.

After all, this is a professional game; the players and coaches are all grown men used to coping with frustrations of the game. That didn’t stop an assistant coach for the New York Jets, Sam Alosi, from taking down one of the members of the opposing team. The Miami Dolphins player who literally took the fall was Nolan Carroll.

Alosi was on the sidelines when he tripped Carroll. It didn’t help his team to win; the New York Jets still lost with a score of 10 to 6. Maybe Alosi was just trying to give his team a chance, however; he took action near the end of the third quarter of the game. It did, however, cause public embarrassment for both the coach and the team. In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Alosi admitted to the action and described his behavior as “unsportsmanlike.” He also sent his apologies to the opposing team.

Carroll didn’t make much of the issue, describing it as a situation the Jets have to deal with, not him or the Dolphins. The Jets, meanwhile, have yet to decide on what to do about Alosi, according to their public relations man, Bruce Speight.

The action was apparent during a replay of the game. Carroll was not taken out of the game permanently after the trip but did need to be pulled out after being initially injured. One thing is for certain: the Jets will undoubtedly be careful Also doesn’t trip anyone in their upcoming games against Pittsburgh and Chicago.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
