Joe Gardi, who guided Hofstra's football team as it moved from Division III to Division I-AA (now the Football Championship Subdivision) in 1994, died Wednesday at the age of 71.
In the 2010 NFL draft, the SEC led all conferences in players selected -- but the Big 12 had the first four picks. The ACC had claims of its own (a run of years with a top-10 pick) and the Big Ten was No. 2 overall. What does all this mean?
Hofstra University, which has fielded a football team for the last 69 years, is dropping the sport, citing high costs and low interest.
