Breaking Down ESPN’s Article on Belichick ’75

I read ESPN. A lot. And it’s always surprising and fun to see the Worldwide Leader in Sports mention the Wesleyan on a website which typically reserves space for the likes of Duke, Clemson, and Alabama. Compared to its peer institutions, Wesleyan has little competition when it comes to notable gridiron alumni. Five-time Super Bowl winning […]

Field hockey endured the flood-warning inducing rains on Tuesday night to face No. 3 Tufts in their fourth game in 10 days. But before that near natural disaster, Bowdoin, Mount Holyoke, and Bates all challenged the Cards to play their best field hockey. Though the results were mixed, with a 1-3 record over the span, the […]

Patrick Mahomes: A Future Kansas City Legend

September 24, 2018, by Ben Owen, Sports Editor. 1 Comment

It is halftime of the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes just broke an NFL record for most touchdown passes through Week Three with 13, surpassing Peyton Manning’s 12. Today, Mahomes currently has 252 yards passing and three TDs. Again, it’s halftime. He’s been tearing up the league, posting […]

Football Falls Short Against Tufts in Defensive Battle

September 24, 2018, by Jacques Slaughter, Staff Writer. Leave a Comment

Last Saturday, Sept. 22, Tufts football narrowly edged out Wesleyan for a late-night victory of 16-13. Tufts managed a flurry of points in the second quarter and did not score again, but it was still enough to carry them to a win. The Cardinal defense was not as strong as last week, but still managed a sack […]

Last Saturday, the men’s soccer team faced off in a vital conference matchup against perennial NCAA tournament contender Bowdoin. It was a wild weekend of sports action, and the game kicked off around the same time as football. Despite the multiple sporting events of the day, over 300 people lined the sides of Jackson Field […]

The streak is on! This Wednesday, women’s soccer was able to follow up on their dominant win against Bowdoin last Saturday with a spectacular 5-0 victory against Mount Holyoke College (2-4-0) on Wednesday at Jackson Field. The Cardinals now stand with a 4-2-0 record heading into an important conference matchup against Bates this Saturday. The […]

To the shock and chagrin of all Joe Buck lovers, last week, I ranked him and Aikman as the bottom pair of NFL commentators. Now, this ranking doesn’t include the likes of the robotic Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts or the commentator musical chairs that’s going on at ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Buck and Aikman […]

The Pointless Win Column: The Case for Jacob deGrom to Win the Cy Young

September 20, 2018, by Nicholas Keating, Contributing Writer. Leave a Comment

Jacob deGrom is forcing baseball’s hand. The New York Mets’ ace has been phenomenal this season, while his team…well, not so much. His individual statistics have been historically dominant, but he is still not a lock to win the National League Cy Young Award, which is given to the best pitcher in each league every […]

Basketball is almost back! The NBA opens its 73rd regular season on October 16 with a pair of marquee matchups: the Philadelphia 76ers face the Boston Celtics in a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinals, while the Oklahoma City Thunder (possibly without star guard Russell Westbrook) take on the defending champion Golden State Warriors.
