By John Murphy | Oct 9th, 2009 | Category: Issues, October 9th Print Edition, Sports

“We got in the locker room, and it was wild. It was wild. That’s all I can tell you. It was uncontrollable, which was great.”
If I told you that quotation was from Washington Head Coach Steve Sarkisian’s comment after beating No. 3-ranked USC, it would make sense. How about South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier after upsetting No. […]

When it comes to Tulane baseball, winning is a way of life, especially at home in the increasingly hostile Turchin Field.
After all, it’s never easy for a visiting team to win on the road against a top-ranked team, much less in a place where alumni chant the “Hullabaloo” at the top of their lungs after every […]

The great punk hunt

Die-hard Pat Green fans probably already know Walker, as he has opened for Green on tours. If you don’t know Walker, get to know him.
In the vein of Cross-Canadian Ragweed, Drive-by Truckers and Green, Walker is country, but not like Kenny Chesney or Tim McGraw. Described as “Texas country,” Walker throws a […]
