Remembering the pioneers

“The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” -1 Samuel 16:7 Tony Dungy, former NFL head coach, used this verse to start one of the chapters in his bestselling book Quiet Strength. To most fans and athletes, Tony Dungy is simply […]

The return of America’s pastime

The second week in February is circled on just about everyone’s calendar for some reason or another. ACU’s Sing Song is upon us, Valentine’s Day has love in the air and most importantly, Spring training is right around the corner. Baseball fans have been counting down the days since the end of October while they […]

Super Bowl: Defense wins championships

Super Bowl XLVIII was a disaster from the start. The Broncos started the game by botching a snap and it only got worse from there. The Broncos could not protect Peyton Manning or hold onto the ball the entire game, proving once again that defense wins championships. In this pass-happy NFL that Rodger Goodell built, […]

Golding’s efforts should be praised

“We are going to win. That’s what I was hired to do, and I don’t like to lose. I won here as a player, and I won at Arkansas-Little Rock, and we are going to win here at Abilene Christian University.” These words by head basketball coach Joe Golding have rung in my head since […]

Sherman was disrespectful, but not a thug

Richard Sherman is cockiness incarnate. Sherman has been a force in the NFL the last two years becoming one of the leagues top corners and leading the league with 16 interceptions. He has not only shut down opponents on the field but also off. Unfortunately, his game is overshadowed by his post-game rants, which leads […]

New Year’s Resolution: Be the advantage

The New Year is finally here and the spring semester has begun. The rec center buzzes with sweat and desperation, people suddenly seem to have a personal produce section in their fridge and we all have those friends constantly reminding us of their social media fast by posting about their fast. At the same time, […]

Biggio, Piazza among BBWAA casualties

Every January, the Baseball Writer’s Association of America casts their votes to induct the newest members of the baseball Hall of Fame. After this year’s vote, it is clear that the voting process needs to be changed. Let me preface this by saying that Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are all deserving candidates. […]

The BCS era saved its best game for last

The NCAA’s final year under the current BCS system came to a close last Monday. This year’s slate of games had perfect matchups as every game came down to the wire. Unfortunately, the state of Texas saw a pretty mediocre bowl season with blow-out losses and close wins. The record for the seven schools from […]

5 best college football games of my life

The 2013 Iron Bowl was one of the best college football games I have ever seen. Chris Davis will forever be remembered in Alabama, and throughout the nation, for his 109 yard return of a missed field goal that ruined Nick Saban’s dynasty and sent millions of Crimson Tide fans into a tailspin. When Davis […]

Iron Bowl for the ages

I am still in shock of what happened at Auburn Saturday night. My mind may never be able to wrap around the final play of that game or understand how it happened, but that may be a good thing. It was the greatest ending to a football game I have ever seen. Most football games […]

Senior class walks away as living legends

As the ACU football team says goodbye to one of the greatest classes in the history of the program, it is never too early to wonder who will step up next season. Offensively, for the second straight year, a new quarterback will step into the limelight with humongous shoes to fill. John David Baker followed […]

Students should show up for home games

I’ll never forget looking forward to my first college basketball game as a college student; the packed coliseum, the way the energy bounces off the fans and onto the court of seemingly unreal athletes. Then I went to ACU. Now, I’m not saying it was bad, but it was pretty sad. There were maybe a […]
