RedHawks back on track, back in MAC East race

Entering Saturday, the Miami football team appeared to be one loss away from falling apart -- the RedHawks were nursing a three-game losing streak, including two gut-wrenching conference defeats to go along with a blowout at Notre Dame. With a loss Saturday, the Red and White would have moved to 1-3 in the MAC East with little to no chance for making a run at a division title. With that pressure in mind, the 'Hawks played an angry, physical and determined football game, defeating the Buffalo Bulls 24-14.

Three strangely interesting teams for the 2017-2018 NBA season

We've all heard the statement before. You could be discussing the record-setting amount of All-Stars moving teams in the NBA offseason (11 players!), hyping up your favorite player as the next superstar-in-the-making, or even sitting around playing NBA 2K on your couch with your friends. As sports discussions are apt to do, the conversation may get a bit heated as different opinions are brought up and counterpoint after counterpoint are raised, but eventually one person will end the discussion with a single statement:
