Without a New Owner, Expos Sit in Limbo – The Post
Bids are being accepted until November 1 and then MLB gets down to business. There is talk of a GM being hired in the next week or so.

IOWA 6 PENN STATE 4
This is not a typo, as most of you already know. It was an unbelievable game, very exciting and competitive. Penn State’s offense was just so inept that we looked forward to punts because it meant, a.) they did not turn it over and b.) we would have a chance to score with the defense on the field. This was the game that convinced me that “Joe must go.” It is sad. For the good of the program, he needs to step down. This is not working and I hate to say that. Unless he fires his son, I do not see how he can be coach.
