Athletics release of Barnier raises several eyebrows, and it should

Less than 48 hours after our track and field team dominated at its annual Wes Kittley Invitational, head coach Keith Barnier was relieved of his duties, effective immediately, according to director of athletics Lee De Leon. Three years ago, when Barnier arrived at Abilene, he was tasked with carrying a legendary track and field team through a […]

Peyton Manning’s retirement marks beginning of the end

Peyton Manning retired on Monday beginning the end of the “golden era” of NFL quarterbacking. Manning along with Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger became the faces of the NFL for almost two decades. Now, one of those face will no longer be on the field. I’m saying this not from a negative standpoint. […]

New on-campus stadium should increase attendance

The fan base for the Wildcat faithful should increase as the university finally brings all its sports to on-campus facilities. ACU athletics reached its original goal of $30 million for a new football stadium last week. The university will break ground on the new stadium during sing song. Shotwell Stadium definitely holds a lot of ACU tradition, […]

Wildcats take on SFA in biggest game since Div. I move

Women’s soccer welcomes conference powerhouse Stephen F. Austin to town on Tuesday afternoon. The game is arguably one of the biggest in the program’s nine-year history, as you’d need to go back to the historic 2011 season where the Wildcats went 20-2-1 and an undefeated 13-0-1 in the Lone Star Conference, to find a game of equal […]

Wildcats eye trophy in conference championships

The Southland Conference championships are this weekend for ACU’s cross country teams, with both the men and women traveling to Huntsville to face off against the 13 other universities in the Southland. This time last year, several factors were weighing against both teams. But what a difference a year can make. The women’s team has […]

Wildcats need change, and they need it now

The Wildcats’ 2015 season needs rejuvenation and a new leader at the helm. Six games into the 2015 football season, the Wildcats sit at 2-4 overall and 2-3 in conference. A record few expected to see this early on. I’m not going to judge many of these losses because ACU simply does not have the same level of […]

Cross-country; the least known team with the most success

Summer time is usually a time spent relaxing and tanning. The cross-country team did the ladder of those two but only because they were outside training on a daily basis. Both the men and women’s teams took their three months off seriously. A majority of the team came back with completely transformed bodied and attitudes […]

Best is yet to come for ACU volleyball

The ACU volleyball team recently fell to 0-10 on the year and has produced just five winning sets in 35 opportunities. At this point, many fans worry that a second consecutive losing season could be looming. However, fans need only look past the looming deficits and analyze the Wildcats season more closely. In the 10 games, […]

Loss to ‘Dogs deeper than win-loss column

ACU football fans got their first glimpse of the 2015 squad last week in Fresno, California as the ‘Cats dropped a rough opener to the Bulldogs, 34-13. The tough thing to takeaway is that first and foremost, Fresno State just had more talent than ACU. The opener should be viewed as a barometer of how […]

Wildcats 4-1 loss to Aggies is a bigger deal than you think

Last week, the Wildcats soccer program took on the no. 3 nationally ranked Texas A&M Aggies. In College Station, where the Aggies have gone 50-6-3 dating back to the 2011 season, ACU not only kept the game tied at one goal a piece heading into halftime, but also struck first against the powerhouse. In front […]

Marshawn Lynch makes silent noise

He is a three-time professional bowler with a Super Bowl ring and his own charity foundation. He has his own endorsement deal and clothing line, but remains quiet and reserved. And the media hates him for it. Marshawn Lynch does not fit inside the box the media wants to place him in. For one, running […]

College stars scrambling for their NFL lives

Dual-threat quarterbacks are everywhere in the NCAA. The trend has spilled over into the NFL, causing mass chaos on how to prepare spread, no-huddle quarterbacks for the pro-style game. Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick and Johnny Manziel are learning the hard way that their throwing-outside-of-the-pocket days are numbered. Offensive coordinators are trying to fit a square […]
