Mu vs. Oakland

Posted on 19 December 2006 by Justin Phillips

It’s been a wild week in basketball on all levels. The 76ers and overjoyed, they found an answer to their problem in the Denver Nuggets. After the brawl and 7 man suspension (including Melo Anthony for 15 games) Alan Iverson was traded from the 76ers to the Nuggets for two players and two draft picks. A deal that works for both teams.

Our very own sportsman

Posted on 11 December 2006 by Justin Phillips

I realize that this is relatively old news, but our very own Dwyane Wade was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Having just read the article I would have to recommend it to not only fans of Wade, but to anyone who loves to read about people overcoming great odds and the redemptive power of love. Seriously, just when you thought you knew the Wade story you read this and realize blessing doesn’t even begin to describe him. If you want to understand what I mean by that you are just going to have to read the article for yourself.

No Playoffs?

Posted on 10 December 2006 by Justin Phillips

With the Packers out of the playoff race and 3 weeks left in the season is there anything for Packer fans to look forward to? Yes. Of course, when any team is out of playoff contention it is always popular to root for a high draft pick. You could turn your attention to dreaming about which favorite college player you’d like to see in the Green and Gold next year, but before you look ahead to next year there are still a few things left to enjoy this season.

First, Brett Favre is only seven touchdown passes away from breaking Dan Marino’s career touchdown passing record. It sure would be nice to see Brett break it before the end of the year so that no offseason craziness could prevent him from breaking it as a Packer.

The second thing to look forward to is the Packers last three games are against divisional foes. It’s always nice to beat a divisional opponent even when the game is meaningless for us. How nice would it be to see the Packers ruin the Bears season by beating them at Soldier Field? With some luck the Pack’s victory would prevent the Bears from securing home field advantage throughout the playoffs. It is always common to see Packer fans with a my favorite team is the Packers, my second favorite team is whoever plays the Bears t-shirt. With the Bears a legitimate Super Bowl contender this year rooting against them takes on added importance. Rooting against the Bears for the remainder of the season could provide ample enjoyment for the true Packer fan.

THE BIG GAME

Posted on 09 December 2006 by Justin Phillips

Welcome to the pre-show for what could be the biggest game of the semester for the MU team. The fans are out in full force. A few of The Warrior staff were out here since 8am and they got seats in the last row of the lower bowl, so do the math on what time you had to be here to get front row seats. I feel anyone who is either in the way back of the upper section, or anyone too drunk to actually appreciate the game. However if you aren’t at this game…lets be honest, you really screwed up. No offense but you really should be here.

The sports argument: Should NFL coaches be allowed to wear suits? NO

Posted on 06 December 2006 by Justin Phillips

Last time I checked, a suit never won a championship. Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry and Mike Ditka never won games based on looks. Bill Parcells, the only coach to take four different teams to the playoffs, didn’t do that based off looks alone. These coaches won because they have learned amazing strategy, brilliant play calling and because they have some of the best players on their respective teams. Lombardi and Landry and any of the other great coaches would have won games with or without a suit. Make Vince Lombardi wear a visor and a Packers polo. Does his name change? Does his mastery of the game change? No. Continue Reading

The sports argument: Should NFL coaches be allowed to wear suits? YES

Posted on 06 December 2006 by Cassie Kowaleski

Picture Vince Lombardi or Tom Landry. You identify their hats and jackets as much as you do the men themselves. Now picture the modern day coaching genius Bill Belichick in his ratty hooded sweatshirt with the cutoff sleeves. His outfit gives him a completely different image, but Coach Belichick says he would prefer to dress in a more formal, distinguished way, like his predecessors. What’s stopping him? The NFL dress code. Continue Reading

(+44) plays The Rave, excited to be back on tour

Posted on 06 December 2006 by Tracey Weckworth

With temperatures considerably lower than the previous week, kids ran through piles of snow in T-shirts trying to get into The Rave last Saturday night. The San Diego quartet, (+44), had arrived in Milwaukee after a cancelled performance due to drummer, Travis Barker, injuring his right arm. The audience was going to have plenty of time for anticipation as the band was not scheduled to take the stage until 11 p.m. Continue Reading
