The ACU football team is welcoming a former three-star recruit to spring practice.
Former University of Houston wide receiver Larry McDuffey transferred to ACU after playing two seasons for the Cougars.
McDuffey was a standout at North Shore High School, which is in the Houston area, and made an immediate impact in his college career.
McDuffey’s saw plenty [...]
It may just be me, but I just can’t get into the Winter Olympics. They don’t excite me, at all. I am very patriotic and I love watching my country win medals but the summer Olympics are far better in my opinion. You can call me crazy for not enjoying hockey, luge or even curling, [...]
“The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” -1 Samuel 16:7
Tony Dungy, former NFL head coach, used this verse to start one of the chapters in his bestselling book Quiet Strength.
To most fans and athletes, Tony Dungy is simply a [...]
The second week in February is circled on just about everyone’s calendar for some reason or another. ACU’s Sing Song is upon us, Valentine’s Day has love in the air and most importantly, Spring training is right around the corner.
Baseball fans have been counting down the days since the end of October while they wait [...]
Super Bowl XLVIII was a disaster from the start. The Broncos started the game by botching a snap and it only got worse from there. The Broncos could not protect Peyton Manning or hold onto the ball the entire game, proving once again that defense wins championships.
In this pass-happy NFL that Rodger Goodell built, we [...]
“We are going to win. That’s what I was hired to do, and I don’t like to lose. I won here as a player, and I won at Arkansas-Little Rock, and we are going to win here at Abilene Christian University.”
These words by head basketball coach Joe Golding have rung in my head since February [...]
Richard Sherman is cockiness incarnate. Sherman has been a force in the NFL the last two years becoming one of the leagues top corners and leading the league with 16 interceptions. He has not only shut down opponents on the field but also off. Unfortunately, his game is overshadowed by his post-game rants, which leads [...]
The New Year is finally here and the spring semester has begun. The rec center buzzes with sweat and desperation, people suddenly seem to have a personal produce section in their fridge and we all have those friends constantly reminding us of their social media fast by posting about their fast.
At the same time, the [...]
Every January, the Baseball Writer’s Association of America casts their votes to induct the newest members of the baseball Hall of Fame. After this year’s vote, it is clear that the voting process needs to be changed.
Let me preface this by saying that Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are all deserving candidates. However, [...]
The NCAA’s final year under the current BCS system came to a close last Monday. This year’s slate of games had perfect matchups as every game came down to the wire. Unfortunately, the state of Texas saw a pretty mediocre bowl season with blow-out losses and close wins. The record for the seven schools from [...]
The 2013 Iron Bowl was one of the best college football games I have ever seen. Chris Davis will forever be remembered in Alabama, and throughout the nation, for his 109 yard return of a missed field goal that ruined Nick Saban’s dynasty and sent millions of Crimson Tide fans into a tailspin.
When Davis crossed [...]
I am still in shock of what happened at Auburn Saturday night. My mind may never be able to wrap around the final play of that game or understand how it happened, but that may be a good thing. It was the greatest ending to a football game I have ever seen.
Most football games end [...]
