A quick google search led to http://www.cunyathletics.com/ - looks like CUNY athletes compete in over 20 varsity sports, plus community college teams. Sounds like a "Follow-up Friday" segment is owed to these people. (Just because a school is not featured on Sports Center doesn't mean it doesn't compete. NPR of all outlets should be aware of this.)

There is nobody better in the business than Howie Rose. As an Islanders and Mets fan, he has been the voice of a good portion of my sporting watching life and I really enjoy listening to him call a game.
