Beyond the Bison: Dodger Blues

Yasiel Puig’s struggles, Clayton Kershaw’s playoff demise, and Don Mattingly’s poor decisions led to the too-early exit of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals. For a team that had World Series hopes, that is simply unacceptable. With 94 wins in the regular season...

Beyond the Bison: “Remember When”

Steve Smith was the greatest Carolina Panther ever. For years, he terrorized corners with his deceptive strength—and he punished every safety who ever dared to cheat up to the line of scrimmage. Through thick and thin, winning or losing, Smith was the only constant. Nearly 850 receptions and 12,000...

The Washington Redskins may have gotten just what the doctor ordered when Robert Griffin III went down with a nasty ankle injury back in week two. No pun intended. With the franchise’s glorified enigma forced to the bench for at least half the season, his foil (and backup) Kirk Cousins has taken the re...

Jesse Klug ’16 of the men’s soccer team has had an outstanding first two years at the University as a forward. If the first six games of his junior campaign are foretelling for the rest of the season, Klug’s third year on the pitch may be his best yet. The men’s soccer team now stands at a record...

Feb. 6, 2005. The date doesn’t seem so significant. But, boy is it ever. You know why? Because it’s the last time Bill Belichick and Tom Brady hoisted the Lombardi Trophy. Yes, the perennially “great” Patriots teams of the last 15 years haven’t actually won anything in almost 10 years. ...

I’m disappointed. Not surprised, but disappointed. How quickly people can forget. MLB’s hottest team out of the gate is the Milwaukee Brewers. Off to an 11-4 start, the team has wowed scouts with great starting pitching, a deep bullpen, and lineup depth. But the biggest catalyst of all? Yes,...

Kevin Tapper ’15 has been finishing at the top of the standings frequently this spring, and there was no slowing down from April 4 to 5 at the Colonial Relays. In an event where the Bison finished first with 101.20 total points, Tapper earned an impressive 19 points (eight team points, 11 individual...

The Eagles really messed this one up. For almost a month, the Eagles took the league by storm with their drawn-out, painfully brutal public campaign against their own star receiver, DeSean Jackson. Story after story, worse and worse each time, brutally dug the knife deeper and deeper into Jackson...

The 2014 season will be Derek Jeter’s last. Baseball will say goodbye to a player that rose above a marred generation all around; a player whose greatness was truly defined not by his laundry list of statistical accomplishments, but by the winning aura he carried with him from his very first...

February 23, 2014 “The Cost” Sometimes things just have to get really, really bad before they can get better. Such is the case with the 2013-2014 Philadelphia 76ers. Sitting at 15-42, only the Milwaukee Bucks can make a claim to be worse than the Sixers. But not even the Bucks' roster can...

I’ll sum up Super Bowl XLVIII like this: anti-climactic ... in a good way. Just a couple of weeks ago I hinted that this Super Bowl could possibly go down as a “legendary” game because of the perceived greatness of both the Seahawks and the Broncos. Clearly, I did the Seahawks a serious di...

Dear Kevin Durant, Please return. Sincerely, Planet Earth. That’s not a real letter, obviously. But that doesn’t mean it’s not the truth. In case you’ve been too caught up in the thrilling NFL season and/or the busy holidays and their dog-days of January aftermath, here’s a news fla...
