    by Dave Goldman on Aug 21, 22:28

The two-time Pro Bowler — 1992 and 1999 — started in 140 games and was part of three Super Bowl Champion teams. But like every player, he paid a physical price. In his 12-year career as an offensive lineman with the Washington […]

    by Daniella Rivera, Dave Goldman on Aug 19, 8:44

    The storm was coming, everybody just didn’t know when. In February, University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) athletic director Keith Hackett said that with oil prices plummeting, the dominos would lead to heavier than usual cuts to athletics. “For months, I don’t think anybody has really realized that there’s really a budget crisis here,” Hackett said […]

    by Dave Goldman on Aug 17, 22:51

    If this were a game of “Can you top this?” Allie Ostrander would have quite a challenge on her hands — make that feet. But the Boise State sophomore is accustomed to challenges and meeting them.

    Extra time should equal some reward, says UAA’s Thomas

    by Dave Goldman on Aug 15, 18:10

    Sometimes 60 minutes of hockey isn’t enough. Everyone can agree on that, but how a team is rewarded for the extra work is up for debate. A summertime proposal to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to increase the pace of the overtime session was turned down. That would have seen a four-on-four five minute session, followed by three-on-three and […]
