For true fans of the game, Super Bowl LIII was far from boring

For the majority of those who tuned in, Super Bowl LIII could be summed up in one word: boring. Neither the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams could get anything going on offense. The first quarter came and went without any points, as a string of three and outs and stalled drives put a damper on the action. The Patriots got on the board in the second quarter, but not in the form of a touchdown, and took a 3-0 lead into halftime....

Poor shooting leads to rocky start for Pirates

Kevin Willard’s biggest challenge this season was replacing the production left behind by his four-star seniors, and it still remains a work in progress eight games in. The men’s basketball team has gotten off to a 5-3 start this season and begins conference play on Dec. 29.

Despite leading for 30:46 of game time, it was not enough for Seton Hall to hang on for a win against Louisville.
