New Year’s Resolutions

By: Tyler Chuck It’s that time of the year where people make a pledge to try something new. Popular resolutions include eating healthy, working out, reading, and saving money. Bleh. I prefer taking a minor league baseball road trip, leaving bad relationship behind, and trying the all bacon diet. Yum. You gotta live a little….

New Warriors Fan

By: Sarah Hoover Let me admit it, right from the get-go: I am not a diehard Warriors fan. I wasn’t watching during the “We Believe” years, nor was I around for the years when their twenty-eighth win didn’t come until April (or when 28 wins felt like a pipe dream… yikes, 2001!) I grew up…

By: Josh Schiesl This past Saturday fans were treated to an instant classic in the Big Ten Title game where both the Hawkeyes and Spartans left everything on the field with hopes of tasting victory and a chance to play for a National Championship. It’s difficult to think that with this same scenario a mere…

Interviews, Athletes, and Clichés
