Questions from today’s sports world

Since I started writing for The Famuan, I’ve received a lot of positive feedback and occasionally some questions. Here are some of the more interesting ones:

Young Hakimu, what do you think about Jay-Z trying to buy the New Jersey Nets and P. Diddy trying to buy the New York Knicks? Holla! – S. Carter, Brooklyn N.Y.

It’s great as long as Jay-Z doesn’t move the Nets to Marcy Projects in Brooklyn. Perhaps they will do an MTV special called “Making the Team” so we can watch Diddy make his players run 26.2 miles to get him cheesecake when they lose a game. The most important question is: will the Roc-A-Wear or Sean John jerseys look better?

Will Eli Manning win the Heisman? I hope he doesn’t get screwed like his brother did back at Tennessee. – P. Manning, Indianapolis, Ind.

Eli Manning is the MVP of college football, with or without Ole Miss winning the SEC Title. He has good competition in Phillip Rivers at N.C. State and Larry Fitzgerald at Pittsburgh, but Eli’s got my (fantasy) vote. Given the nasty habits of Heisman voters, Oklahoma quarterback Jason White might steal it, at which point we should invade Oklahoma.

What’s up with this zone defense thing? It’s ruining the NBA! – T. McGrady, Orlando

Bad shooters and children who turn professional too early are ruining the NBA, not zone defense. Who came up with “illegal defense” anyway? That sounds like something a weapons dealer should be charged with, not a basketball term. Go practice your shooting!

How could they give the National League MVP to Barry Bonds? I think Albert Pujols should have won! – S. Sosa, Chicago, Ill.

It doesn’t matter what you think! Barry Bonds is the man. Everyone knows it. Pujols will win many MVP awards – as soon as Bonds retires.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t win another game without their best receiver. They should’ve just thrown him the ball and they wouldn’t have a losing record. – K. Johnson, Los Angeles, Calif.

That’s not true. No one player is bigger than the team. Keyshawn Johnson may be a good receiver, but he’s better at being a selfish idiot and disappearing in big games.

What is this I hear about FAMU being in a contest for ugliest uniform at’s Page 2? This is unacceptable. – F. Gainous, Tallahassee, Fla.

What’s unacceptable is that our uniforms look like we raided Miami and Florida’s equipment rooms for jerseys and helmets. I like the Orange Blossom Classic throwbacks the old school players wore for the 25th Anniversary of the 1-AA Championship myself. In defense of Page 2, they are the same people who wrote an article about FAMU having “The Best Band in the Land. The good news is that we are supposed to be getting a new logo and uniforms next year.

How ’bout them Sooners? No one can stop them! – B. Stoops, Norman, Okla.

I can see them winning the Sugar Bowl, which is cool because when FAMU beats them next year we’d be ranked #1. Just remember, no team is unbeatable. For proof, I refer you to Miami’s loss in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. Go Rattlers!
