With free agency now under way, the NFL’s quarterback landscape is beginning to take shape. The Joe Flacco and Case Keenum trades to the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins, respectively, can be made official, and Nick Foles has signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
In my opinion, the rivalry between Duke University and University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill’s basketball teams may be the best in all of sports. The two teams play each other at least twice per year — three times if we’re lucky — and their matchups never disappoint. That was until last Wednesday, in the game when Zion Williamson, the Blue Devils’ once-in-a-generation phenom, was set to leave his mark on the rivalry at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
The NFL offseason has just begun, but there are already a number of noteworthy storylines to discuss. From quarterback movement to highly public trade requests to the coaching carousel, there’s a lot to delve into.
With the Super Bowl now in the rear-view mirror, it is a perfect time to revisit my preseason NFL predictions, some of which were included in a September DanLand column. While some of my predictions were right on the money, others could not have been further off. For the sake of accountability, I have been sure to include both my accurate and inaccurate predictions in this column, along with corresponding grades.
Win or lose, the Blue Jay football team’s game against the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Engineers last Saturday would be one for the record books. Hopkins was playing in its second-ever NCAA Division III Quarterfinal game, and its first on Homewood Field. However, the Jays were not going to settle, and they had their sights set on something even bigger: a spot in the semifinals.
After two rounds of playoff competition, only the elite Division-III football teams remain in contention for a National Championship. Heading into December, the Blue Jays are scorching hot, and neither their opponents nor the frigid weather are showing any ability to cool them off.
The Hopkins field hockey team experienced great success throughout the regular season and the Centennial Conference Tournament. Thus far, the NCAA Tournament has been much of the same. The team began its quest to win a National Championship this past weekend in Grantham, Pa.
The Hopkins football team’s regular season is quickly winding down, and the Blue Jays are still vying for a Centennial Conference Championship and a postseason bid. This past Saturday, they hit the road for the final time this regular season to take on the Juniata College Eagles.
On Saturday, the Blue Jay football team hosted the Muhlenberg College Mules in quite possibly the most important game on the Centennial Conference schedule this season. With a win, the undefeated Mules would be in prime position to end Hopkins’ eight-year reign atop the Conference. Spoiler alert: that didn’t happen.
This past Saturday, Hopkins hit the road for a Centennial Conference matchup with the Gettysburg College Bullets. It was business as usual for Blue Jays, who picked up right where they left off before their bye week.
The Opposing Viewpoints series is a space for students with diverse perspectives to answer pertinent questions in conversation with each other.
The Hopkins volleyball team traveled to Swarthmore, Pa. on Saturday to play a pair of key late-season matches. The first was a Centennial Conference tilt against the Swarthmore College Garnet and the latter a non-Conference matchup against the Vassar College Brewers. Both matches proved to be challenging for the Blue Jays, but the ultimate results were undeniably gratifying.
On Saturday, Hopkins traveled to Franklin & Marshall College (F&M) in Lancaster, Pa. to take on the Diplomats, a team against which they carried a five-game winning streak. Both teams entered the Oct. 6 matchup boasting 4-1 records on the season. While they shared the Centennial Conference title a year ago after both finishing the regular season 9-1, the likelihood of such a scenario playing out again is highly improbable. A defeat in this game would deliver one team its second Conference loss and significantly hurt its odds to contend for this year’s Centennial title. Thus the stakes were elevated for this year’s midseason matchup between the Conference rivals.
The MLB postseason is now underway, which means that it is the most exciting time of year for those who love to watch America’s Pastime. I will certainly enjoy watching October baseball, and am eager to see which team will ultimately raise the Commissioner’s Trophy at the end of the World Series. However, this time around, it will be difficult for me to appreciate the end of the season to the extent that I normally would.
The Hopkins football team’s regular season consists of only 10 games. This in effect makes every matchup a must-win game if the team is to legitimately contend for a postseason berth.
Another exciting Grand Slam season on the ATP Tour just wrapped up, with Novak Djokovic securing his 14th career Slam at the U.S. Open. While there are still several notable tournaments coming up before the end of the calendar year — the Paris Masters, the Shanghai Masters and the ATP Finals — the end of the Slam season is as good a time as any to examine the current landscape of the sport’s elite players.
Heading into its final weekend, the U.S. Open had been spectacular. Despite the sweltering heat that persisted throughout the tournament, tennis’ elite players had provided fans with a number of spectacular matches and captivating storylines.
After a commanding home victory over Randolph-Macon College on Aug. 30, the Hopkins football team hit the road on Saturday, Sept. 8 to kick off its Conference schedule against the Susquehanna University River Hawks. The Blue Jays were undefeated against the River Hawks since the latter joined the Centennial Conference in 2010 and looked to add to this unblemished record. However, they ran into an opponent that was keen to rewrite history.
