Dear Robert Morris, For some strange reason, no matter where I go on this 230 acre campus, I keep hearing that this school needs a new on-campus arena to be considered a premier institution. I constantly hear how great this will be for the university, how much revenue it can generate and how it's...

Sometimes, it's just hard to say goodbye. Words aren't there, expressions are explained, and truly the unimaginable can't receive a justification as to why it happened. That's a scenario for life, not just sports. However, in the wide world of athletics, saying goodbye is the hardest thing to do. At...

The traveling sports fan is one of the most unique figures in all of athletics, whether collegiate or professional. Driving, flying or even cycling to an event (yes, that's real), in order to see their favorite team doesn't stymie the hardcore sports fan. In fact, miles or kilometers are only a motivating...

What are sports? I'm not looking for the simplistic and sarcastic answer to that question. That is remedial at the lowest level of thinking for the average sports fan. Sports are people playing for a living. Sports are groups of men and women joining forces to achieve the one goal that less than...

January 4th, 2014 - 14 players, 5-10 record. March 6th, 2014 - 8 players, 14-2 NEC record, 20-12 overall record, regular season NEC championship and a birth to the semifinals in the NEC tournament. You say coincidence; I say Cinderella story. Normally, the recycled cliché gets tossed around...

It starts with a thought that travels throughout the synapses of the brain. The subconscious debates whether to put forth the action, or neglect the mishandling of the current moment. Time stands still only for a few seconds as the human puts that thought into a process, thus creating an instance. An...

Geoffrey Chaucer once said, "All good things must come to an end." That phrase has stood the test of time and emulates life as a whole. It is very true; everything must come to and end at some point. Vince Lombardi retired from the game he helped make famous. John Wooden left UCLA after his time there...

Former President Theodore Roosevelt wanted a reform of the college football landscape during his time in the White House. Thus, the National Collegiate Athletic Association was born. Since the 1930's, college sports and universities have never been more turbulent. With sports, comes money. The more...

Dear Colonial Crazies,  Due to the emotional roller coaster that sports provide, it's only fair to assume that fans will be along for the ride. Extreme highs and lows dictate whether your adrenaline will pump even harder, or if your blood pressure may barely read a signal after a crushing defeat...

Life doesn't always bring the expected, but often, the unexpected and unforeseen occur. It is how you react to the sudden events that take over your life that separate the strong-willed from the weak-hearted. Sports, over the years have provided the worldwide audience with moments that will last...
