    The NBA is back with media days going on all around the league this week.

And they still ring true in 2023. Seven years later his team suffered a 19-16 loss to the slow-starting Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football at Paycor Stadium, who were sporting their white tiger-striped helmets for only the third time. The Rams (1-2) have now lost...

    Mykell Mathieu, Sports Reporter|Oct 5, 2023

    UCLA went into last Saturday’s matchup with a chance to prove they will be a team to be that can compete for a Pac-12 football championship. The defense showed up but the offense forgot its invitation to the party as the 3-1 Bruins suffered their first defeat of the year, 14-7 against 4-0 Utah. The opening play of the game for the Bruins’ offense would foreshadow how the rest of the game would look. Freshman quarterback Dante Moore dropped back for his first attempt of the game and telegraphed a pass to the left. A Utah defender jumped in fro...

    Steve Finley, Sports Editor|Oct 5, 2023
