It’s time to put a pin in the Deflategate scandal

  Coming to a Supreme Court nearest you…deflated footballs? We’re still talking about air pressure in a football, people! In a 2-1 decision in the second circuit of the U.S. Appeals Court, the choice to exonerate Tom Brady of a four-game suspension for his suspected role in the New England Patriots’ deflated football scandal was reversed on Monday. Brady, as it stands today, will serve that four-game suspension—the one that was...

Six teams earn NCAA awards

  For the second consecutive year, six Seton Hall University Athletic programs have won an NCAA Public Recognition Award, the NCAA announced Wednesday. The baseball, men’s basketball, women’s cross country, women’s golf, softball and women’s tennis teams each won the award, which is given to programs that post a multiyear Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top ten percent of their respective sports. “The recognition our six programs...

Timing is everything: Consider circumstance when making choices in college

To be honest, I had no idea what to write for my “senior column.” I put that in quotations because every time I say the words “senior column,” I put the little finger quotes up in my head. I guess it’s because this will hopefully not be the last thing I write in my aspiring career in journalism. It also could be because I really can’t fathom the fact that my time at Seton Hall is coming to a close. I feel like I just got here...

Revis to blame as Jets struggle to retain Fitzpatrick

  Quarterback is the most important position on the football field, and if the 2016 NFL season started this Sunday, the starter for the New York Jets would be Geno Smith. I’m sorry, Jets fans. I kind of chuckled there typing that graph. The Jets quarterback depth chart, as it stands today, looks like this: the aforementioned Smith and second-year backup Bryce Petty. Yikes. It is important to note that last year’s starter and...

Transferred success: Powell, Richardson dancing after picking Pirates

Joey Khan/Photography Editor Joey Khan/Photography Editor   For the second straight season, Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella has his team in the NCAA Tournament—unprecedented for a school that before last year had not sniffed postseason play of that magnitude in 20 years. Last year, Bozzella had the luxury of the Simmons tandem— Ka-Deidre and Daisha (no relation)—who formed a formidable backcourt. This season,...

Pirates have the look of something special

  Finally. You knew it was happening Saturday night at the Garden. At least I did. After covering the men’s basketball team throughout this season and over the course of the entirety of the Big East Tournament, one thing is clear: This team is different. Different than the Jordan Theodore-led squad in 2011-12 and far different than the team back in 2013-14 – a team that was two wins away from winning the conference tournament....

Corporate mindset to blame for Yanks’ new ticket policy

  Billy Walsh from Entourage said it best: “Suits suck.” Corporate America is taking over the country. Well, at least the baseball world. Well, at least the Bronx. Last week, baseball’s cash cow that is the New York Yankees announced they will no longer be accepting print-at-home tickets from secondary markets like Stub- Hub and Seat Geek. In other words, unless you can get your hands on the actual hard ticket – which, in our...

SHU storms St. John’s behind Delgado’s double-double

  The Seton Hall men’s basketball team overpowered St. John’s Wednesday night en route to a 79- 60 beating over the Red Storm. It was not always easy for the Pirates, who found themselves in a back-and-forth affair with the Johnnies in the first half, which resulted in just an eight-point lead for the Pirates at the break. “We came out a little too lackadaisical defensively, and I thought once we settled in a little bit defensively we...

Edwin cleared of prostitution charges

  Former Seton Hall men’s basketball star Fuquan Edwin has been found not guilty on prostitution charges, according to SNY’s Adam Zagoria. The charges stem from an arrest in July of 2015. Edwin and former Rutgers University standout Myles Mack were among 13 people arrested in late July after being picked up in an undercover prostitution sting. Edwin and Mack allegedly offered to pay an enforcement officer posing as a prostitute. Edwin...

Heim Time: Football finally returning to Los Angeles

  On Tuesday, Jan. 12 the NFL, along with its 32 league owners, voted 30-2 in favor of the St. Louis Rams returning to Los Angeles, the city they were originally conceived in 1946 and inhabited until 1994. The move is groundbreaking. For years the National Football League has toyed with the idea of relocating at least one of its franchises. But which one? Could it be the Rams – a franchise trapped in a baseball city that is no...

George Washington hands Hall second loss

  The Seton Hall Pirates fell to George Washington Wednesday Dec. 2, 72-64. The Hall and Colonials battled back-and-forth in the first half, trading buckets for much of the premier 20 minutes of the game. Sophomore Desi Rodriguez led the charge for the Pirates offense early on, logging nine points at the break, leading the team. By mid-way through the opening half, the Pirates had built a 17-11 lead over the Colonials. That is when...
