Giants report card: Grading all facets of the 29-27 loss to the Redskins | Politi

Odell Beckham Jr. still can't control his emotions, and that's a Giant problem | Politi — EAST RUTHERFORD - He said he didn't remember how he ended up with a grape-sized welt near his right temple, but the embarrassing answer was broadcast to a national TV audience for all to see. Odell Beckham Jr.

Remembering how Arnold Palmer ordered an Arnold Palmer at the Masters | Politi — Arnold Palmer was playing the final back nine of his Masters career, but on that perfect spring afternoon in 2004, he was still as relevant as any of the contenders in golf's greatest major championship. I walked with him over his final 18 holes at Augusta National and it will always be one of my favorite memories as a sportswriter.

Odell Beckham Jr.: Refs threatened to eject him for doing 'anything' — EAST RUTHERFORD - If you thought Odell Beckham Jr. was relatively well behaved on Sunday - unless, that is, if you count - there might be a reason. Beckham told reporters immediately following the Giants' 29-27 loss to the Redskins that he was warned that any transgression, even his first one, would lead to him being thrown out of the game.

Giants 5 observations: Eli Manning throws away a chance to go 3-0 | Politi — EAST RUTHERFORD - The Giants probably didn't deserve to win this one, not with 11 penalties (and many of the 15 yards of stupid variety) and a defense that couldn't get the big stops it needed in the second half.

Rutgers report card: Grading all facets of the 14-7 loss to Iowa | Politi

Rutgers offense not nearly good enough against a beatable Iowa team | Politi — PISCATAWAY - Drew Mehringer looked like a man who had just eaten a bad burrito and was about to pay the price. His hands were on his knees, his face was pointed to the ground, and his gaze suggested a deep regret about his choices over the past few hours.

Rutgers 5 observations: Moral victory should have been a real one against Iowa | Politi — PISCATAWAY - So are you a glass-half full fan? Because if you are, and even if you aren't, you probably signed for a 14-7 game in the Big Ten opener against Iowa given that the home team had a chance to win.

Here's a scale to rank Rutgers controversies from 1 to 10

@drew_nj 1. Recruiting. 2. Bowls. 3. $$$$. 4. TV. 5. Perception. Etc. Did Ash/Hobbs meet with students to be nice? Billboards just because?

@drew_nj Sorry. We comment on what people are talking about and it's a relevant topic every week. Atmosphere matters for many reasons.

@drew_nj Next week, FWIW, the category will be "atmosphere" and take in the entire experience. Clearly, RU sees crowd size/noise as crucial.

@drew_nj I'd certainly read it. Give me a C for grammar but an A-plus for snark!
