Maryland/Rutgers Football Preview

Posted by Inigo On June - 2 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

MARYUniversity of Maryland and Rutgers University are two of the latest additions to the Big “Ten” Conference that will make their respective debuts to the conference in the fall. Both east coast schools will be making a drastic transition from playing regional schools to traveling long distances to play the schools in the Midwest. There has been continuous debate on whether their arrival will disrupt the tradition of Big Ten style and attributes, but this decision came down to money on both sides. Let’s preview how the schools will fair in the first athletic challenge during their rookie Big Ten seasons–football.

Maryland:

The Terrapins finished 5th place in the ACC Atlantic Division just barley winning enough games to be bowl eligible. They ended up losing to Marshall from the MAC in the Military Bowl, ending their season on a sour note. Maryland will play in the East Division with Rutgers, Indiana,  Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State. This is arguably the much more competitive division with Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and reigning Big Ten Champions Michigan State. This will prove a trail by fire transition for Maryland, but luckily they are used to playing with Florida State in their division. Their first five games are all winnable, with the key match up coming on September 13th at home versus rivals West Virginia. Maryland opens up their Big Ten campaign at Indiana on September 27th and at home versus Ohio State on October 4th. Continue reading “Maryland/Rutgers Football Preview” »

Derrick Coleman’s Biggest Fan

Posted by Leland On January - 27 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Derrick ColemanDerrick Coleman isn’t your average football player. For starters, he plays for the NFL, which is no small feat. He has spent his entire life overcoming adversity and never lets his disability get in his way. One special fan recognized his status as a positive role model, and the rest is history.

Coleman was born in 1990 in West Los Angeles, California. He began playing football in the seventh grade, was recruited from Fullerton’s Troy High School, and played college football for the University of California, Los Angeles. Coleman now plays tailback and fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. He lost the majority of his hearing at age three and has since trained himself to read lips. He also uses hearing aids. His coach Pete Carroll calls him “one of the most dependable special teams guys,” and it is obvious to many that Coleman has not let his disability get in the way of his success as a professional athlete. His teammates have learned to work in cooperation with Coleman, making sure he can see their lips and clarifying plays if anything is unclear. Teammates say he is a “great example of [their] ‘no excuses’ mantra.”

DatBull Gives Up DatBall

Posted by Leland On June - 11 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

jay-harrisIn a piece of news so comically ridiculous you know it must be true, Michigan State University football recruit Jay Harris has elected to pursue a rap career rather than play ball as a Spartan this year. Whether you believe that this was his decision, or the rumors that coach Mark Dantonio revoked his scholarship after seeing his profane rap videos on YouTube, one thing is for sure: this is pretty funny.

Jay Harris performs under the clever name Jay DatBull, and says “I’ve been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now.” His video, “DatBull for Life” begins with him lighting up a marijuana cigarette and the eloquent line “I’m DatBull, for life, I’ll take your wife.” The rap goes on to contain much more explicit language, lending credence to the suspicions that it was not, as he claims, his own choice to forgo the MSU scholarship. The school has not commented in depth, but does say that Harris’s removal from the team was “a mutual decision”.
