Football disappoints in season opener

September 23, 2010

On Saturday, September 4, the Millersville football team kicked off their new season against Assumption College. The Marauders are looking to improve their 3-8 record from last year. In his first two seasons as head coach, Greg Colby entered the season with a record of 4-18 for the Marauders.

The game was underway with Millersville kicking off to the Greyhounds who had a 10-play, 46-yard drive before failing to convert on fourth down. Millersville took over on downs on their own 36. . . .

Football seeks an improvement for the upcoming 2010 season

April 30, 2010

After a lot hard work and tough training over the winter and spring, the Millersville football team’s spring camp has finally come to an end. They sweat, bled, and had a few injuries here and there, but the team still had fun with everything they did. Most importantly, the team also saw a lot of improvement from last year’s spring camp.

Every year after spring camp the football team has a spring game. This year the game is April 22, on Chryst Field at Biemesderfer Stadium, and begins promptly at 7 p.m. The game is not a regulation game, but a scrimmage within the team. The team is either split up as offense against defense or divided evenly. . . .

Discussing the McNabb domino effect

April 15, 2010

As any sports fan knows, Donovan Mcnabb is now a Washington Redskin. The shock was not that number five got traded, but it was that it was within the division. While the Birds did pick up the 37th overall pick in the draft I have a very hard time believing that this was the right decision.

The team is not that far away from a ring and to get rid of Mcnabb in hopes that unproven Kevin Kolb will lead them to the promised land is ludicrous. Through all of the hoopla of Mcnabb becoming a Skin there was one person who suffered more than anyone out of this whole ordeal, Jimmy Clausen. . . .

Franchise quarterbacks hardly a dime a dozen

April 14, 2010

This year’s NFL draft will be shown in primetime with the first round on Thursday night and the second and third round on Friday evening. The spotlights are brighter than ever before and undoubtedly they will shine brightest on the quarterbacks.

Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen are going to go through a month of intense scrutiny leading up to April 22. There is a never-ending search for the coveted franchise quarterback. Bradford and Clausen are seen as the elite quarterbacks in an otherwise weak year for the position, thus helping their stock immensely. Since 2000, 26 quarterbacks have gone in the first round of the draft, 16 of which went in the first half of the first round. Interestingly enough, 13 of the 26 are not full time starters; this shows what a crap-shoot the NFL draft can be. . . .

Super Bowl preview

February 4, 2010

With the Pro Bowl now over and the AFC tying the series record at 20-20 it is now time for the last game of the season, the Super Bowl. Unless you have boycotted all media outlets the last two weeks you already know that the Colts will take on the Saints in Sunday’s match up. . . .

Sports in American culture

January 28, 2010

Football is America’s favorite sport and the Super Bowl is fast approaching. I figure there is no better time than now to discuss something that has slowly been changing my opinion of professional and college football that is broadcast to national and local audiences. . . .
