Super Bowl 50 Preview

Monday, February 1st, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

The 50th edition of the world’s most popular sporting event will take place in Santa Clara, California at Levi’s Stadium on February 7th. The game will feature two teams with completely different identities.

The Carolina Panthers had the best record in the NFL this season going 17-1, earning the #1 seed in the NFC. They led the NFL in total points thanks to former Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton. Many people counted the Panthers out of playoff contention when Newton’s number one target, Kelvin Benjamin, went down with a knee injury before the season started. However, that injury did not deter the Panthers at all. Newton responded with an MVP caliber season and Carolina’s second appearance in the Super Bowl in team history. (more…)

January Madness?

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

It’s not even March yet and we are already seeing our fair share of upsets in college basketball. In fact, this is the first time that five No. 1 teams have lost before February since 1949. The latest No. 1 team to go down was Oklahoma on Monday night as they fell to No. 19 Iowa State, 82-77, at the Hilton Coliseum. Maybe there is something going around in the water in Iowa because this is the third No. 1 team to lose in the state this season. Northern Iowa previously defeated North Carolina and Iowa got the best of Michigan State when these teams squared off earlier in the season.  (more…)

One Season Too Long

Monday, December 7th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday“Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.”

Saying goodbye to the game that you have loved ever since you were a little boy or girl is never easy. It does not matter if you are a high school athlete or a 5-time NFL MVP, hanging your cleats up for the last time is never an easy task.

Unfortunately, we are witnessing the beginning of the end to two iconic athletes who have been performing at an elite level for the entirety of their careers. Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant are two of the best to ever play their respective sport. (more…)

The Debate of the Decade

Saturday, November 14th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports SaturdayShould college athletes get paid?

It is such a simple question, but the answer is a lot more complex then yes or no.

Paying college athletes is an extremely complicated scenario because there are so many sports, schools, and conferences that distributing the money equally would be a nightmare.

However, I think that the resolution to this matter is fairly simple.

College athletics is a business and it comes down to which sports make the most amount of money for the NCAA.

Men’s Soccer Senior Night

Friday, November 6th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports SaturdayThe Men’s Soccer team plays their final game of the season at the Ridley Athletic Complex on Saturday November 7th at 1:00 pm against the Holy Cross Crusaders.

The Greyhounds have had a disappointing 2015 campaign as they sit at 2-12-2 overall and 0-7-1 in the Patriot League. Loyola did pull off one of the biggest upsets in school history this year defeating rival UMBC who was ranked 11th in the country when the teams squared off in September. (more…)

Who is the Best of the Best?

Saturday, October 24th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

 Sports SaturdayFor the first time since 1970, 5 NFL teams will be undefeated entering week 7. The Bengals, Broncos, Packers, Panthers, and Patriots are the lone remaining teams without a loss and all 5 of them have a legitimate chance of raising the Lombardi Trophy come February.

We know what Andy Dalton and company can do during the regular season, but the real question for the Bengals is, can they get the job done during the post-season? Dalton has made the playoffs in each of his first 4 years in the league however, he is 0-4 in the post-season. This is a different Bengals team. They are incredibly balanced on offense with a thunder and lightning rushing attack with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard, as well as a prolific passing attack featuring A.J Green. With the exception of the Ravens game, Green has been relatively quiet so far this season. It is the emergence of guys like Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones that have really added another dimension to this offense. Eifert specifically has been extremely effective in the red zone hauling in 6 touchdowns leading all tight ends. This Bengals team certainly has the weapons to keep up with the elite teams in the AFC. (more…)

2015-16 Loyola Basketball Season Preview

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday The college basketball season is right around the corner and if there is going to be a year in which Loyola basketball wins the Patriot League, the 2015-16 season is definitely that year. This team has a perfect mixture of veteran leadership and young talent.

The Greyhounds have four seniors on the team and they are all expected to play pivotal roles this year. Loyola gets big man Jarred Jones back after playing in only two games last year due to injury. The men in green also return Franz Rassman who started every game last season, Eric Laster who was the team MVP last year, and Tyler Hubbard who is the only member of the team who was on the 2012 team that won the MAAC championship.

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.

President’s Cup 2015 All Star Game

Thursday, May 14th, 2015 by The Professor

The President’s Cup 2015 All Star Game took place April 18th inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards. WLOY’s live play by play team of Justin Thomas ’15, Bobby Trosset ’16 and Brendan Peirce ’17 called the game and even had a sit down chat with Baltimore City Council President Jack Young in between the 3rd and 4th innings. We had a problem with our recording at the startup so you’ll be joining the game already in progress for the second inning. The complete audio is below, enjoy!

The President’s Cup aims to unite Baltimore’s youth by using baseball to bring together groups of high school students from different backgrounds that normally would not compete with one another. Practice began Saturday, April 4 the newly renovated Johns Hopkins baseball field with 25 players on each team composed of both public and private schools. The President’s Cup also represents everything Council President’s ongoing P.L.A.Y. (Productive Lives, Active Youth) campaign stands for. P.L.A.Y. provides Baltimore’s youth with a wide range of opportunities to strengthen their self-confidence, develop leadership skills, learn from positive role models, and be rewarded athletically for their academic achievements. P.L.A.Y. encourages them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
