Over the past several weeks, big news has come out of the National Football League (NFL) regarding a couple of their head coaches. And it is serious — nothing like the other coaching blunders of this season, like Brian Flores of the Miami Dolphins, who is currently trying to rebuild the team and deal with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s rib injury. Joe Judge of the New York Giants had a good team that produced no results — and now that quarterback Daniel Jones is concussed, he has to think of an alternative way to win.
With the Major League Baseball (MLB) regular season in the books, it’s time for the American League (AL) and National League (NL) Most Valuable Players (MVPs) to be decided. In the AL, it’s going to be either Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. or Los Angeles Angels phenom Shohei Ohtani. And as impressive as Guerrero’s statline is with his .311 average, 111 runs batted in (RBIs) and 48 home runs, let’s not overcomplicate this: Ohtani is your AL MVP.
What can we do to improve Hopkins culture? It is a constant question in the minds of the Hopkins administration as well as the Student Government Association (SGA). College is supposed to be about having fun and making friends, even if we are here mainly to get a degree.
Last week was a momentous event in one of the biggest criminal cases of the past decade. Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Maggie Nichols represented themselves and hundreds of unnamed athletes before the Senate Judiciary Committee seeking accountability from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The agency failed to properly handle the investigation into Larry Nassar, the disgraced former doctor of Team USA who sexually assaulted at least 265 young women and girls.
Every year, college athletic programs in the NCAA make the decision to switch in and out of various conferences. This is normal; level of competition, TV contracts, program goals and many more things can change from year to year, so it’s good that conferences are flexible enough to accommodate these changes.

Los Angeles Angels pitcher and designated hitter Shohei Ohtani entered the league in 2017 as the most hyped baseball prospect since Bryce Harper. The moment he agreed to a deal with the Angels, the baseball community knew what time it was.

What may be the weirdest trade deadline ever has come and gone. While less eventful than the average non-pandemic trade deadline, several consequential moves were made.

Breaking news shook the European football world on Sunday, April 18 when the boards of 12 prestigious clubs — Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus — announced that they were forming a breakaway European Super League (ESL).
Julian Edelman, the best Patriots receiver over the last decade, retired on Monday, April 12. He has three Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player trophy. He is probably one of the best seventh-round picks of all time, up there behind Bo Jackson and Shannon Sharpe. He deserves a lot of props. But he does not deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
The first Formula One (F1) race in the 2021 season took place in Bahrain on March 28. Even though the grandstands were empty, the new F1 cars’ engines revving reverberated through the racecourse and could be heard for miles. The numerous 2021 F1 regulation changes did little to change the race’s result: The seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton finished first, followed by Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas.

The day where contending teams acquire “rentals” from non-playoff teams on expiring contracts and a few players with terms left on their contracts are traded. Draft picks and prospects are traded, contending teams prepare for the stretch run and through a few head-scratching trades, general managers occasionally unknowingly submit an implicit letter of resignation. Let’s take a look at the market and craft a preview of how likely players are to be moved, where they might end up and what future assets might be exchanged.
Over the course of a normal five-month season, NFL players are expected to travel the country, leave their friends and family and play 16 grueling games in all sorts of inclement weather with only one week to rest.
