What We're Reading

  • »World Cup's 'Teddy Goalsevelt' is Ithaca alum
  • Even at the Division III football level at Ithaca, the crowd makes a difference and it's no different here. I know they're aware of the support they have back home and that can do nothing but motivate them further.
  • »Sea Gull turned Seahawk remembers roots
  • Dan Quinn, a former defensive lineman for Salisbury (then Salisbury State) is now the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks.
  • »Learning to love the purple powers
  • Some bemoan the fact that Mount Union and Whitewater always end up on opposite sides of the playoff bracket. To which I say, that?s the way it should be.
