Robert Morris men's hockey came into this season with high hopes for what this season would hold. After making it all the way to the Atlantic Hockey Championship last season, the team started their 2017-18 campaign projected to finish second in the conference. Players like Francis Marotte, Luke Lynch,...

In 2015, 33,091 Americans died of opioid overdose. 33,091 is a lot of people, and the opioid epidemic is a major problem. But in the same year, 44,193 people died from suicide. 33,145 of those people suffered from depression. Everyone is talking about the opioid crisis.

Earlier in the season, I predicted that the Robert Morris Colonials would finish within the top three in the Northeast Conference. I cited their strong defense, seemingly improved offense and the weak NEC as reasons for this prediction. I definitely did not think that they wouldn’t even finish around...

After watching Jimmy Walker escape the pocket and make plays like a young Ben Roethlisberger, the perspective on this team changed. No longer are the running backs the key to this offense.

Last week, for the first time in 17 years, Robert Morris defeated a great FCS program in Dayton by the score of 13-10. Only head equipment manager Ray Butter was on the staff the last time this team beat Dayton. Some people don’t want you to think too much into the first game of the season. I,...
