Don't be a tepid bowl of mush

The No. 9 ranked Louisiana State University Tigers will face the No 2. ranked University of Alabama Crimson Tide in what could be the second-best match-up in college football this weekend. That's because the best game in college football this week will be played right down the road at UR Stadium, when a CAA title, an undefeated season, an unprecedented winning streak and home field advantage during the playoffs will be hanging in the balance for the University of Richmond when it takes on Villanova University. If you miss this football game, you had better be dead.

Letter: come out for homecoming, make football history

Even though you've never been up at 5:30 a.m. for football practice, lifting weights, running, stretching, being yelled at, yelling back - during the summer (when many of you were on a beach, in Europe, traveling or just preparing to come/come back to this most beautiful campus), YOU can truly MAKE A DIFFERENCE if you come this Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

Athletes taking extra steps to avoid the spread of H1N1

Athletes are usually focused on game plans and matchups, but now they have to worry about illness, too. The team physicians and trainers in the Sports Medicine department have emphasized preventative measures to keep teams healthy this year. "We have not really changed what we have done [in the past]," said Chris Jones, director of Sports Medicine. The physicians and trainers meet with teams before the season to remind them of the proper hygiene practices that help stop the spread of infection, Jones said. "A lot of things are common sense, but not common practice," he said. Mike London, head football coach, said: "We hope to hammer the message home that you have to be very mindful about what you do so you do not open yourself up to those issues.
