This Week in Sports: October 16 – October 22

Published

on

The MLB World Series, an important Monday Night Football game for the J-E-T-S, a great top 20 college football game, and a PGA Tour event with great ramifications are on slate for the week of October 16.

Monday Night Football: Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets –
October 17

This game is an absolute must-win for the Jets if they want to keep any hope alive of making it to the playoffs. The Dolphins, well, maybe not so much. Miami is one of only a handful of teams to have not won a game this season, and giving up over 300 passing yards a game overshadows the fact that they have a decent offense. Also, they have played some tough competition to this point in the Patriots, Texans, and Chargers (along with the Browns). Expect Matt Moore to have a solid outing for the Dolphins, while Sanchez and the Jets should be able to pick apart Miami’s defense for an easy win.

World Series: Texas Rangers vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Starts October 19

With dominating performances by both teams to clinch their league’s pennants, the 2011 MLB World Series should be a great event to watch. The Texas Rangers have one of the best hitting clubs in the league as well as the postseason, and that has helped them by average starting pitching performances. The St. Louis Cardinals have the best hitter in baseball in Albert Pujols, as well as veteran hitters to back him up in Lance Berman and Matt Holliday. Even though most experts will go with the Rangers in five games, expect the Cardinals to give them a run for their money, especially since they have home field advantage.

Week 8: Wisconsin vs. Michigan State – October 22

Wisconsin looks to continue their trek towards a national championship as they face off against a very talented Spartan team led by quarterback Kirk Cousins. The key for Michigan State in this matchup is finding a way to stop Russell Wilson, a Heisman hopeful quarterback for the Badgers who can do it all (even catching passes). For Wisconsin, they will have to find a way to get past one of the toughest defenses in the nation in Michigan State, who are ranked fourth overall in points against at only 11 per game.

PGA Tour: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic – Starts October 20

The 2011 PGA Tour Season is winding down with only a handful of tournaments to go. One of the more interesting events to watch is the Children’s Miracle Classic starting this Thursday. Why? The top two players on the money list (Webb Simpson, Luke Donald) are duking it out to see who will be on top (on the golf course, although hand-to-hand combat would be pretty cool to watch), in which the winner will receive a five year exemption on the PGA Tour. If you haven’t watched much golf this year, this is definitely the one to watch.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has come in for stiff criticism after it introduced a new dress code that forbids female golfers from sporting plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course.

Initial reactions were overwhelmingly negative, with Teen Vogue accusing the governing body’s policy of “slut-shaming” female players. The progressive and influential youth magazine also said the code sets players and women in general “way back”.

As of 17 July, the LPGA will crack down on athletic wear following a 2 July email to all players from LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman, which detailed an extensive list of clothing that will no longer be allowed on the course and at pro-am parties on the tour.
