In an 18-game regular season, any signs of struggle early on could greatly affect postseason seeding or eligibility. Following a 0-2-1 start, including a loss to Sacred Heart University, the Drexel men’s soccer team remained composed and responded with three consecutive victories. The Dragons began their season Aug. 30 at home against Fairleigh Dickinson University, […]

You can just imagine the scene. College baseball players are gathered around, maybe in the dugout or maybe after a long and hard-fought game to end their season. Their uniforms are probably dirtied and grass-stained, smudged eye-black on both cheeks. Instead of the manager walking in to go through the customary postseason speech that says […]
Curt Flood is a name that gets lost in the annals of sports history. His name becomes forgotten because his performance on the field pales in comparison to his accomplishment off the field. Flood, the former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder, challenged Major League Baseball’s reserve clause in 1969 and changed the way professional athletes are […]
Sports teams are often compared to cars. It is certainly not a surprising phenomenon, considering the growth in popularity of sports coinciding with the growth of the automobile industry in the United States. Analysts, coaches and fans throw around terminology like “well-oiled machine” and “firing on all cylinders” from time to time as appropriate accolades […]
At a time when Rutgers University should be finding ways to make an impact in its new conference, the Big Ten, the school is instead trying to right the ship that is sinking amid many controversies and allegations over the past two months. Former Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice came under fire April 3 […]
The Drexel men’s lacrosse team’s identity this season was no secret, as the Dragons boasted a run-and-gun style of play that resulted in lots of scoring opportunities. Was it entertaining? Absolutely. Was it consistent? Eh, not so much. At times, Drexel was unstoppable, filling the net at will while opponents looked like deer in the […]
For as long as any of us have been at Drexel, the bar for defining any of our sports teams’ seasons as a success has never been set too high. We’ve seldom had a “championship or bust” mentality because none of our teams had ever won a postseason title. Having a great regular-season record and […]
A few months ago over Labor Day weekend, my roommate invited my girlfriend and me to spend a few days with him and his girlfriend at his house in Tampa, Fla. We enjoyed the days sitting around the pool and spent the nights relaxing on the dock with fishing poles in the water. One night, […]
Bill Moyers once said, “I’ll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.” Is a corporation a person? That’s not an easy question to answer because the word “person” has more than one meaning. The word “person” can be used in a theological sense, though I doubt anyone means to claim that a corporation is […]
The 2012-13 men’s basketball schedule was finally released late last week, and it’s looking like nothing but good news for the Dragons. The team has a more competitive schedule than last year, and if they win games like they did last season, they are bound to get an at-large bid for the NCAA Tournament if […]
In the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse trial and The Pennsylvania State University’s cover-up, the role of deceased head football coach Joe Paterno in the scandal has been determined. On June 12, the investigative team PSU, which was hired to do an internal investigation of the situation, published their 267-page review called the Freeh […]
Both Drexel University and the greater Philadelphia region will be in the national spotlight this weekend as four teams come to town for the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals. The University of Virginia, the University of Notre Dame, Colgate University and Duke University will put a bid to the Final Four on the line in a […]
Drexel head coach James “Bruiser” Flint roams the sidelines during the Dragons 56-59 loss to Virginia Commonwealth University in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship game. The tournament took place in Richmond, Va. at the Richmond Coliseum. Drexel vs. the world — not necessarily. The above statement has caught on as “the thing” to say after […]
