New test for CTE could be end of the NFL as we know it

The political tension within the NFL is hiding a much larger problem for the league that, unlike debates about anthem protests, will not fade away. It has been and will continue to be the league’s ultimate problem: the aftermath of concussions and brain injuries. According to Boston University, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a “progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in people with a history of repetitive brain...

Women’s Basketball schedule presents challenges – and opportunities

Following what was a rebuilding season for Tony Bozzella and the Seton Hall women’s basketball team in 2016-17, the Pirates are not afraid of challenges for the upcoming season.

The non-conference schedule will present its challenges, but those games will allow the Pirates to play up to...

Golf returns with both teams ready to answer questions

Big questions surround the men’s and women’s golf teams in the early weeks of September. The clear question on the men’s team is if and how it will be able to replace Lloyd Jefferson Go, a player Pirates’ head coach Clay White called “the eraser” because of his ability to make up for his teammates’ mistakes. Go left Seton Hall as arguably the best golfer to play for the Pirates, and according to White, replacing him will have to be a...

Softball offense erupts to bounce back in Georgetown doubleheader

Saturday was a tale of two stories for Seton Hall softball, who split their doubleheader with the Georgetown Hoyas. In the first game, the usually hard-hitting Pirates offense was the culprit, giving them a 6-1 loss. However, they flipped the switch in a big way in the second game, beating the Hoyas by a score of 10-2. As it has been the entire season, the Pirates offensive production was the key. It was clear that Georgetown pitcher...

SHU baseball’s offense too much for Wagner

Early on, it looked as if Pirates starter Chris Morris could throw a gem. However, his location plagued him, causing his pitch count to run up early. He was pulled in the fifth inning after 96 pitches and two earned...

Raiders relocation brings mixed bag to NFL

On March 27, NFL owners voted to allow the relocation of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas, Nev. After years of botched stadium deals and relocation attempts, the move seemed inevitable. The relocation will be league’s third in the last year, after the St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers ditched their longtime homes for Los Angeles, Cal. While it may seem cynical to let a franchise move to Sin City, there is a solid argument to be...
