USC athletic program goes through some changes

USC athletic program goes through some changes

I guess it took a two-year bowl ban, severe holds on scholarships and an entire season wiped from the record books for the University of Southern California to realize that Mike Garrett was simply not the right guy to be the Athletic Director for USC. So in comes in Pat […]

Eminem’s Recovery puts the rapper back to the top

Eminem’s Recovery puts the rapper back to the top

Ever since Eminem’s album Recovery came out, I have not been able to stop listening to it. Is Eminem back to his old self? Not quite. He will have a hard time following up such emotional and power songs such as “Hailey’s Song” and “Cleaning out my Closet?.” However, this […]

Ithaca Bound!

Ithaca Bound!

I still find it hard to believe that in one month I will be 2,800 miles away in the city of Ithaca, New York. If you were to ask me two years ago when I graduated high school that I would be attending Cornell University, I would have laughed, and […]

Pac-200493948848593929228181 Conference

In a final attempt to put the west coast on the map, the Pac-10 conference has added the University of Colorado and the University of Utah. However, this switching around of conferences has completely taken away from the idea of the student athlete and turned it into a giant business […]

The misleading idea of the community college

The misleading idea of the community college

I was reading an article in the Ventura County Star the other day about high school seniors choosing to attend community college instead of the four-year universities they got into: ones such as UC-Santa Cruz, CSUCI, Cal State Dominguez Hills, etc. Whether it was to be closer to family or […]

FIFA World Cup 2010

FIFA World Cup 2010

I never really envisioned myself ever watching soccer on television. Then there was the world cup. I think that the world cup stands for something more than just the game of soccer, and is a message to us all that team, pride, and unity, among other things, is what defines […]
