One Christmas my older brother got a basketball hoop. We started to have basketball competitions and, of course, he would always win. He was bigger, stronger and at the time faster. This became a competition between us. I fell in love with the game.

USU-Eastern: what not to wear

What you wear is who you are. The first impression you make is from your appearance and then what you do and say adds to it. With this in mind, clothing and style should be something that college students should take a look at.

Pull your pants up

The popular style of sagging pants started in the prison system. Prisoners were and are not allowed to have belts because they can be used as weapons. Nor are they allowed to have shoelaces for the same reason.
Since prisoners do not have a way of keeping their pants up, their pants naturally fall below their butts.
However, some prisoners decided to turn it into a code. Prisoners that are homosexual and/or willing to be an inmate’s girlfriend, wear their pants below this butts letting others know they are available.

Boys of summer hitting the field

 A new chapter was started in last year’s conference tournament when the Eastern baseball program knocked out a team that wasn’t Colorado Northwestern. After a wild victory over the Coyotes of College of Southern Nevada, USU Eastern tied a school baseball record by going  four games deep in a conference tournament.

Smurf Turf

Retirement: every working woman or working man’s dream. Sleep in. Kick back. Toss away the calendar and never look at your watch again. Time for the grandchildren and time to enjoy those AARP discounts at Burger King. It’s the prime slice of life, those golden years between punching the clock and when you’ve lost your marbles and are led away to the rest home of your children’s choice.

BYU VS UTAH AFTERMATH:

John White scored three touchdowns, Jordan Wynn passed for two scores and Utah forced seven BYU turnovers to cruise to a 54-10 victory Saturday night in a rare lopsided game between the rivals.
The loss snapped the Cougars’ four-game home winning streak and was their first to an in-state opponent since 2005.
Utah (2-1) trailed 10-7 late in the second quarter until Wynn beat a blitz and found tight end Jake Murphy open for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Wynn tossed a 59-yard scoring pass to Dres Anderson on the opening possession of the second half, and the Utes never looked back.

An even split

The past two weeks and have been a learning experience for the Lady Eagles. They traveled to Arizona on September 8-10 for a six-game weekend. Returning to Price, on September 16-17, they were able to put together some strong games against the Utah State University Eastern alumni team and an All-Star team from the Salt Lake area.

New coaches bring passion and experience to the court

In addition to the many changes happening on the USU-Eastern campus this year, the men’s basketball program underwent several coaching changes this summer. In mid-July both of Head Coach Brad Barton’s assistant coaches left to pursue other coaching opportunities. Barton was able to find two well-qualified coaches to fill the positions. The two new assistant coaches are Coach Brian Edelstein and Coach Dave Hammer.

Villains & heroes

In every sport there are players and even teams that you love to hate, and then there are the teams that you can’t help but like and relish when they win. These teams and players have all developed reputations that follow them from the field or court out into everyday life, and reputations can also be made in normal situations and then follow the athlete back when they put their jersey on.
