On December 10, 2016, some college athlete will be crowned the next Heisman Trophy Winner, the award given to the most outstanding football player. W...
The Olympics in Rio are over and the tales of the ridiculous and the sublime will now fade into the background. Our fascination with swimmers and gymn...
The most important play in Jimbo Fisher's career wasn't a Jameis Winston touchdown pass in the Rose Bowl, or a coast to coast Dalvin Cook run. The play that changed everything for Fisher and his FSU program was made on a punt against an unranked team.
Last fall, when I first arrived at George Mason, I decided to major in economics. Halfway through the semester, I learned about the large amount of money GMU has accepted from Charles Koch and the power such money has given the Charles Koch Foundation at other universities.
This year's Fountain House Symposium and Luncheon took on a formidable subject. Titled "Suicide: Looking for Answers," the event recently drew more th...
We are thrilled that "Til It Happens To You," The Hunting Ground's original song, has become the fifth song from a documentary ever to receive an Academy Award nomination.
Two powerful universities whose wrongdoings were exposed in The Hunting Ground have gone to great lengths to attack the accounts of survivors: Harvard Law, which protected an assailant who was repeatedly found to have committed assault, and Florida State University, which covered up a rape investigation of its star quarterback.
Lucy is a real treasure, at FSU, in Tallahassee, New York, and around the world. She is a consummate example of the town and gown relationship at i...
It's a lot to take in and you need to let some of your pent-up thoughts and anxieties out every once in a while. The best way to get it all out is to express yourself creatively.
If I was an NFL GM, I'd steer very clear of drafting Winston in the fear that he will be a bust... on and off the field. I'd even argue that if he's selected with that pick, he will become the biggest bust in the history of the NFL, based on all of the hype he will receive.
Even before the kickoff, the FSU fans were flaunting their painted faces and chanting their grade-B movie Indian chant, and doing the infamous tomahawk chop. "Yes, we are killers; we are savages who will use our tomahawks to take your scalps."
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
As years go, 2014 was an interesting one in the sports world. Some might characterize it as depressing while others may look back on it as exhilarating. Whatever the case may be we know that at some point in the future we will look back on the year 2014 with nostalgia.
Justice Harding was a fine jurist, and it is unfair to besmirch his reputation by the suggestion that he was motivated to insure that the university would not lose its quarterback before the big game. His ultimate judgment, however, does warrant review and, if found failing, criticism.
The much anticipated day of revelation has arrived. No, not the second coming of Bear Bryant, but rather the announcement from the Committee of Justice that on Sunday revealed the top four teams in college football.
Let's not forget how we felt immediately upon hearing the news of the shooting at FSU and the many other shootings that have happened nationwide. Holding on to these memories is our only hope that something will change.
