College football season is in full swing which means we officially have an excuse to trade our Saturdays spent studying...
There women are superheroes!
Sporty Spice who?
Every year near the end of June, the National Basketball Association drafts 60 young men from the college and prep...
I've never been into fantasy football because well, it's designed for the NFL which is not my thing. Now, I love my Atlanta Falcons having grown up a fan, but college football is so much better.
When I get ready for a football game at my school, I throw on some shorts and a team T-shirt. If I'm feeling really festive, I'll wear an orange headband or some blue eyeshadow. But these people put me to shame. Some football fans live for Saturdays and show support for their teams by going all out. Without these people, Saturdays would seem more tame. But why would we want that?
So you played sports in a high school, and you were okay. But you never quite got to the level that would attract any attention from a college recruit. That's fine, life as a college athlete basically sucks anyway.
I think we can all agree that college sports are a big deal. Whether it be March Madness or school rivalries or outstanding athletes, college sports are definitely worth commending. But even the best institutions have their issues and like many institutions before them some of the largest issues surrounding college sports right now are surrounding gender equality and Title IX.
With March madness at its peak right now this topic probably doesn't seem like all that much of a stretch to you, but you might be surprised by the direction this topic is going in... Should student athletes be paid?
If you overhear someone talking about NCAA athletics, you probably automatically think of the football and basketball games you see on TV during March Madness and hear about on the news. You may think of swanky warm-ups, the Big 10 teams who win every year, and spoiled brats who don't work very hard at anything. But that is not a very accurate representation of the NCAA.
Recently Kye Allums became the first publicly transgendered student-athlete in NCAA history to play as a male identifying player on the George Washington University women's basketball team. It's a big step for transgendered athletes everywhere and first off I have to say kudos to him.

There is more to the NCAA then those two big name sports.
Happy (almost) Independence Day, people! It's time to bust out the sparklers and consume massive amounts of grilled meat, all in the name of this here country.
There's been big to-do recently over whether or not cheerleading counts as a sport and it all started when Quinnipiac decided to cut women's volleyball in favor of a competitive cheerleading squad. Some of the volleyball players are suing the school saying that competitive cheerleading is "as much a sport as chess"... which is kinda a non-sequiter of an argument, but whatever.
