Steve Stricker, who has been suffering from a weak left arm, announced that an MRI has shown he has a herniated disk in his neck. What the next step is is still being determined.

Also to be determined is if he can play on the Presidents Cup team. If he can’t, that would be a big blow to Tiger Woods. Stricker and Woods are 6-1 together as a team.

If Stricker can’t go, Keegan Bradley will be added to the team.

Your captains picks for the 2011 Presidents Cup:

USA: Tiger Woods and Bill Haas

No surprise for me there — you had to pick Haas after his heroics at the Tour Championship.Sorry, Keegan Bradley.

International: Robert Allenby, Aaron Baddeley

Greg Norman wanted to stack the squad with Australians. So with that thought in mind, these picks don’t surprise me at all either.

NBC SPORTS GROUP TO PROVIDE MORE THAN 50 TOTAL HOURS OF THE PRESIDENTS CUP 2011

NEW YORK – Sept. 26, 2011 – The NBC Sports Group will provide 50 ½ total hours of coverage of The Presidents Cup 2011 from the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, from Wednesday, Nov. 16, through Sunday, Nov. 20, on both Golf Channel and NBC.

Despite Melbourne’s 16-hour difference from the Eastern Time zone, Golf Channel will provide 27 ½ hours of live coverage of all four rounds, much of it in primetime, beginning at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 16 (see schedule below). It will mark the first time that all four rounds of a Presidents Cup competition played outside of North America will be presented live. Golf Channel (Thursday and Friday) and NBC (Saturday and Sunday) will also combine to show 23 hours of re-packaged coverage for replay.

“The Presidents Cup is one of golf’s preeminent events and I’m pleased that we’re able to service the golf fan by utilizing multiple assets in our portfolio — Golf Channel for live coverage and NBC for comprehensive coverage on the weekend,” said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group.

Golf Channel will also televise 23 live hours of news coverage surrounding live play in the form of Live From The Presidents Cup, originating both from Melbourne and the network’s Orlando studios.

The Presidents Cup, which will be played in 2011 for the ninth time, was developed to give the world’s best non-European players an opportunity to compete in international team match-play competition against a team from the United States.

(From my NewJerseyNewsroom.com article)

Coming off last week’s team effort in defeating Villanova, Monmouth University football felt like they had gained a lot of momentum and confidence. They showed it today.

Using a fast 17-0 start, the Monmouth Hawks (2-1, 1-0) got a big road win against Central Connecticut State University today (2-2, 1-1), beating the Blue Devils 24-12.

The win snapped the longest winning streak in I-AA at 15 games and in the process gave the Hawks a high quality road win, against the team many predicted to win the Northeast Conference. Needless to say, head coach Kevin Callahan was a happy man afterwards.

Quick hits for this week’s What It Means:

1) Congrats to Bill Haas for winning both the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup — $11.44 million bucks. Wow. That shot out of the sand/water on the 2nd playoff hole is clearly the shot of the year — the guts to hit that is amazing. And then to make the clutch par putt on the 3rd playoff hole — good for him.

Tiger Woods announced tonight that he has hired Joe LaCava, Fred Couples’ longtime caddie and most recently Dustin Johnson’s caddie has his new caddie.

This is a surprise — most people didn’t think Joe would leave someone with such youth and upside like Dustin. If I had to guess, the combination of being able to caddie for Tiger and the fact that DJ might be joining the European Tour would mean more travel for LaCava, who has two young kids.

Tiger said the following on his website: “‘Mark [Steinberg] and I were approached by a lot of people, including Joe, who expressed an interest in becoming my caddie. This was an important decision, and I wanted to think about it carefully. Also, out of deference for the FedExCup Playoffs, I decided to wait until they were concluding to have substantive talks. We then spoke to Joe and came to an agreement.

Joe is an outstanding caddie, and I have known him for many years. I’ve personally seen the great job he did for Freddie [Couples]. I’m anxious for us to be working together.'”

NEW YORK JETS: Week 3 Review

First of all the Raiders are now 2-1, not 1-2 as I incorrectly stated earlier.

Now, bottom line: you can’t give up 234 yards rushing and four touchdowns and expect to win. That was just awful, awful, awful defense. Period.

Also, still not sold on this offensive line. HAVE to get that better for Baltimore.
