Davies back in the US and other links

Charlie Davies is going to make his US comeback not far from where his 2009 car accident took place. Davies -- who is on loan from French club Sochaux -- signed with D.C. United. While still not 100% Davies should make an impact on the the United squad. I don't know a ton about professional soccer, but I hope that Davies keeps getting better. Before the accident, he was about to become a European star. Let's hope he gets back to soccer's highest level sooner rather than later.

Anthony Castonzo is glad to use this time to focus on football, instead of splitting time with schoolwork.

After her record setting performance, the ACC named Caroline King its Track & Field Performer of the Week.

Per Ivan Maisel:

2. So Kevin Rogers goes from coaching Brett Favre to Chase Rettig. The former Vikings quarterback coach is the new Boston College offensive coordinator, a coup for the Eagles. Rogers knows the northeast -- he coached Marvin Graves and Donovan McNabb at Syracuse -- and he also coached at Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. If Rogers unlocks Rettig’s potential, Boston College will challenge Florida State and Clemson in the ACC Atlantic.

Charlie Davies going to DC Utd has completely gutted me. I will fondly remember his goal for the United States in Mexico City, but I won't cheer for him when he suits up for DC. On the other hand, ex-BC guy Sacir Hot, I will gladly cheer for.

Go BC Track! Amazing what scholarships to Boston College can do for athletic performance.

Would have liked to see Davies go to the Fire:)

"Before the accident, he was about to become a European star."

Even if he hadn't been injured, Europe's stars don't play in France. I hope Davies continues to improve, but I'd be stunned if he achieved EPL or La Liga success.
