Is Big East play Seton Hall’s secret weapon against Kansas?

A neutral site for Seton Hall in Wichita, Kan. will turn largely into a Kansas home game as Jayhawk fans file in on Saturday night at Wintrust Arena. This is no secret to the Pirates, and as far as they know, they have been there, done that. Each Big East game provides a test for teams to prove their worth. A conference that sent six teams to the Big Dance, the Big East has its share of tough road venues to compete in. Playing on the...

Golf’s cries have been answered, Tiger is back and competitive

Decades from now, every young golfer will only be able to hear and read about the legend of Eldrick Woods, the man universally known as “Tiger.” They will hear of his dominance: how he once won seven majors in a three-year span. They will hear of the fear he struck in opponents, how golfers regularly averaged higher scores out of pure intimidation of playing next to Tiger. They will also hear of his poise, how he won his first Masters...

Expanding the College Football Playoffs would benefit the sport

When the NCAA did away with the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and instituted the College Football Playoff (CFP) system for the 2014-15 season, many viewed it as a step in the right direction. With the way the BCS worked, many teams were snubbed out of certain bowl games and in some cases, national championship appearances. In theory, installing the playoff system was going to eliminate any potential snubs, as the best four teams...

Seton Hall fall in bittersweet Senior Night send-off

South Orange, N.J – The Seton Hall women’s volleyball team fell to the Xavier Musketeers on Senior Night in a hard-fought five-set loss. The fourth-place Wildcats of Villanova had already won earlier on in the day, meaning the Pirates were regardless of win-or-loss, destined to finish the regular season one place shy of cracking the top four and securing a berth in the Big East tournament. The first set of the game was the most...

Club rugby, a campus mainstay, experiencing competitive success

Most students come into college without having ever played rugby, or even knowing any details about the sport – besides the fact that it’s similar to football, but with no padding. “It’s continuous, if you get tackled, you have to keep going as if it’s one big play,” senior and three-year club rugby player Connor Cadrin said. The Seton Hall Rugby Football Club is one of the most popular club sports on campus. An official team for over...

Two of those came when the Pirates kicked off Big East play with two...

Westbrook’s historic season should be admired rather than critiqued

Russell Westbrook is on the verge of completing one of the most legendary seasons in NBA history, as he is about to finish the year averaging a triple-double in scoring, rebounds and assists. This feat has only been completed one time in the league’s history, when Oscar Robertson did it in 1964. Clearly, this is an extraordinary task, which some of the best players in the history of the game have never achieved. In Michael Jordan’s...

Opinion: Robots in the workplace pose a few problems

Seton Hall’s promising 90 percent employment rate for the Class of 2016 bodes well for future graduates, but it fails to consider the automation of a variety of industries. Robots taking jobs from people is a reality that is terrifying, especially for a student in the Class of 2019. Millennials like myself, who help pay for their own education, may no longer have the luxury of working the kind of jobs that machines can do better,...
