AFC East Preview

Saturday, September 19th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday After week 1, the AFC East is the only division in football in which all 4 of the teams in the division opened their season 1-0. In a division that features the defending Super Bowl champion, New England Patriots, the AFC East has the potential to be one of the best in football. The Bills, Dolphins, and Jets all made significant upgrades to their roster this offseason and all four teams could make a run at the postseason. Here is my AFC East preview for the 2015 season.

The Bills brought in the likes of LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin, Charles Clay, and of course the always entertaining Rex Ryan to be their head coach. They also have a new quarterback under center, former Virginia Tech standout Tyrod Taylor. Taylor has been the Ravens back-up quarterback the past 4 seasons, but got his first NFL start on Sunday leading the Bills to a statement victory over the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 27-14.

When will the Dark Knight return?

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday Coming off their most improbable win of the season on Tuesday night against the Nationals, the Mets are now faced with the question of when will Matt Harvey return?

Harvey’s agent, Scott Boras, wants Harvey to throw no more than 180 innings on the season. However, he has already thrown 171.2 innings.

After the Mets thrilling 8-7 come from behind victory, they now have a 6 game lead in the division with 24 games left to play. The Mets are looking to clinch their first playoff birth since 2006.

Sports Saturdays: How Amazin’ Are The Mets?

Saturday, April 25th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports SaturdayMeet the Mets!

Don’t look now, but the New York Mets seem to be back in their “Amazin'” form for the first time in ages.

As the Mets prepare to start the Subway Series against their Bronx rivals, the New York Yankees, they find themselves at the top of the MLB with a 13-3 record, while also riding the momentum of an 11-game win streak.

They’re finally in a position to take New York and all of the major leagues by storm, but just how Amazin’ are these Mets?

Just going by the numbers, you have to be impressed with this team. Their 11-game win streak is the longest they’ve been on since 1986, when they also started 2-3 before the streak started.

They also accomplished these win totals at the start of the season with a win streak in 1969.

The Mets won the World Series both of those years. (more…)

Sports Saturdays: McClure Tennis Center To Open

Saturday, April 11th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports SaturdayLoyola’s brand new tennis complex will be unveiled on Saturday at 11:30am, in time for the tennis teams to play Bucknell later in the day.

In a happy and well deserved twist, Loyola will be dedicating the new tennis center to the man who has been at the helm of the tennis program since 1979, and has earned over 700 wins during his tenure, Rick McClure.

The McClure Tennis Center is a stunning eight-court, lighted facility on the grounds of Ridley Athletic Complex. This new complex is only possible thanks to a generous, anonymous $3.2-million donation.

An opening reception will take place at 11:30am, and the dedication ceremony itself will start at 12:30pm. After the festivities end, the Hounds will play their first matches ever in the new complex when they play host to Bucknell.

All who attend are welcome to join McClure and the players in a post-match reception in the Class of 1968 Suite at Ridley.

Sports Saturdays: UAB Win Means Victory Beyond the Court

Saturday, March 21st, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports SaturdayThe University of Alabama at Birmingham shocked the sports world on Thursday when they topped 3-seed Iowa State, 60-59, providing the first major upset of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

According to brackets submitted on ESPN.com, more people picked ISU to go all the way to the Final Four than picked them to lose to 14-seed UAB in the first game.

The major upset win speaks for itself, and obviously it was an emotional win for the UAB players.

“For us, it was just huge,” UAB junior Robert Brown said. “We come here, not just to play games, but to actually make some noise and to win some games. To be able to do that and win for Birmingham, win for Coach [Jerod] Haase, it’s a great feeling.”

Brown led all scorers in the upset win with 21 points.

However, the win means so much more for UAB than just advancing. For them, it was a deep feeling of achievement and euphoria that this program, its students and its fan base desperately needed. (more…)

WHEN: Saturday, March 14th, 1pm

WHERE: Ridley Athletic Complex

Come on out to Ridley this Saturday to cheer on the Hounds as they begin league play!

Sports Saturdays: Dude, Where’s My Racecar?

Saturday, February 28th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Saturday NASCAR just turned into an Ashton Kutcher comedy down in Morrow, Georgia as Team Xtreme Racing driver Travis Kvapil is left saying, “Dude, where’s my car?”

Kvapil’s No. 44 car was in a trailer in a hotel parking lot in Morrow, Georgia in preparation for this weekend’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. At 5:34am, the trailer, with the car and spare parts inside, was stolen.

Team Xtreme now finds themselves without a car for the race this weekend, and had to withdraw from the race Friday morning.

Kvapil reported the theft through Twitter while keeping a good sense of humor about him.

“Wow. Anyone near Atlanta find my stolen Cup car let me know! Unreal,” Kvapil first tweeted at 9:13am. (more…)

Bringing Football Back To LA?

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk After an announcement on Thursday from the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, we learned that there are three NFL teams considering the move to Hollywood from their current cities.

These three teams are the St. Louis Rams (which we already knew about), the Oakland Raiders (which we assumed), and the San Diego Chargers.

The Rams began pursuing a plan to possibly move to LA a little over a month back, but the Raiders and Chargers just sprung this on the NFL world.

Chargers fans and the people of the great city of San Diego are shocked and slightly betrayed by this news, especially since San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer created a task force with the sole purpose of finding ways to keep the Chargers in San Diego. (more…)
