While American baseball gets into full swing in the States and talks of NFL and NBA drafts flood ESPN and other sports media outlets, I can already hear the rumbles and cheers escaping South Africa like the booming thunder of a herd of elephants fleeing a pride of lions.
Confederate flags EVERYWHERE. "The South will rise again" stickers and banners all over the place. Numerous museums, exhibits and historical sites dedicated to Confederate history. These are a handful of present-day Virginia's odes to the Confederacy, but apparently, that's not enough. Virginia's governor wants the entire month of April dedicated to Confederate history. Are times really changing or are we simply moving in reverse?
Like many basketball fans out there, I don't like the NBA. It takes everything good about the college game and ruins it. The season is too long, the players are too nice and the teams are too soft.
More University of Richmond students are abusing prescription drugs, and experimenting with varieties of new recreational drugs, according to Richmond deans and police.
It's safe to say that few people wish they were Washington Nationals fans. I mean, why board the sinking ship that is the Nationals' franchise, a team that's tanked since its inaugural season in the District of Columbia.
It's that time of year again. Gymnasiums are starting to get a little too toasty after a game of pick-up basketball, and the warm sun beckons us out of the cool darkness. I think springtime is the opportune time to break out the tennis shoes and dust off the baseball glove for some recreational fun in the sun.
The analysis harnesses data from "Police Reports" published in The Collegian, spanning Aug. 28, 2008, to March 25, 2010. These are supplied to The Collegian by the URPD and are accessible here.
This week, while President Obama announces a major change in American national security strategy, a situation halfway around the world is rapidly reaching the point of no return: The Islamic Republic of Iran is racing down the home stretch towards acquiring the nuclear weapons with which they wish to dominate the Middle East.
Greedy. Stupid. Disastrous.
Possession and usage of marijuana. Sexual assault charges. Unloaded firearms stored in a locker room. Illegal substance abuse. Extramarital affairs and sex addiction. Murder and aggravated assault charges. Dogfighting and animal abuse charges.
As proud Richmond students, we are disappointed with our institution's decision to award Jepson's 10th Year Reunion Recognition to Victoria Cobb, president of the Family Foundation Virginia, a group that lobbies against homosexual rights and anti-discrimination legislation.
This week, we witnessed President Obama's shameful treatment of the leader of one of America's closest allies. This became clear when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was hauled before a "seething" Obama and read the Riot Act behind closed doors. Netanyahu was rudely dismissed and the press was not allowed to photograph even a single handshake between the two men.
"I lost it all." Yeah, as you can probably guess, that line didn't go over too well with my mom. Following that up with the words "online" and "gambling" didn't do much to help my case either. So how am I still attending the University of Richmond? How did I weasel my way out of being berated for my mild addiction to sports betting? The answer is simple: CentSports.com.
When the band strikes up the fight song, "Spider Born and Spider Bred," I can honestly say that I embody that phrase. I have been a Spider fan since I was born: My parents are alumni; I live a hop, skip and a jump away from campus; I was one of those little kids who sled down the hill on cardboard boxes at football games at UR Stadium and who was ecstatic whenever I got a high-five from Spidey.
According to the Associated Press, legal definitions of burglary vary, but in general a burglary involves entering a building (not necessarily by breaking in) and remaining there unlawfully with the intention of committing a crime.
Have you heard? Afroman is coming to campus for Pig Roast!
The university's Steam Plant, also referred to as the power plant, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year so the university community has enough steam to generate hot water, heat and air conditioning in all of the buildings on campus.
March Madness, oh what to say. Quite frankly, for myself and many other students on campus, it is the best month sports has to offer (honorable mention: World Cup soccer). This season I feel an even closer connection to this amazing month, because our University of Richmond Spiders were a No. 7 seed in the 65-team field.
As I sit here on a beautiful Sunday afternoon penning my last column as the sports editor for The Collegian, I can't help but think about how I got to this point.
In the Feb. 24 issue, The Collegian printed an article about the swim team's performance at the Atlantic 10 Championship. It quotes: "'Richmond is in the process of rebuilding its diving team,' [Matt]Barany said. The most recent coach, Diane Maiese, left for unspecified reasons ... " Seeing this brought tears to my eyes.
