EOU turns football team into a family

Not many student-athletes seeking a transfer would jump to a team that finished 1-10 the season before.

However, C.J. Taylor did.

Taylor served as a running back for the EOU football team this season.

After the season finale, Taylor was all smiles.

Looking into my crystal ball

Believe it or not there are people out there who are unaware that I am 25 percent psychic. My grandmother was a fortune teller.

This week I’ve dusted off her crystal ball and will let out some secrets of what’s to come. Let’s begin with college football. Every year about this time, college football analysts have nothing to talk about at the halfway point of the season.

So, what they do is analyze the Bowl Championship Series. And, by analyze I mean completely rip apart.

Panther pride shows on cool night

Every once in a while we as reporters get a special glimpse of the subjects we write about on a weekly basis.

Sunday night I traveled to Imbler to partake in one of those moments.


La Grande, now is the time

If you are a basketball fan and you live in the area, then you probably should be an Eastern Oregon University fan.

The Mountaineer women’s team has been very successful in recent years. They have won five conference titles in the last six seasons.

The men’s team has seen a complete transformation. Flash back four years ago: EOU men’s basketball finished the season 4-22.

Belly ache after homecooking

For all the officials I know around the valley, I’m sorry. This column has been brewing for a week and a half. Yes, it’s a knock on a group of officials. But thankfully it’s not directed at anyone I know.

Either way the column had to be written.

Grin and Barrett: The clock has struck midnight

Is it March already? With the Oregon football team not having a stellar season, I’ve mentally moved on to basketball season.

As much of a college football fan I am, my first love is basketball.

The weather’s getting a little chillier and it is time to move inside.

Hard Facts: Freshen up with a little potpourri

Can the Rays out National League the Phillies?

It wasn’t a matter of if the Rays would win at home, but when.

It looks like nobody beats Cole Hamels in the postseason.

Tis the weekend for volleyball

I found the title appropriate since some stores are already putting up Christmas displays.

But seriously, if volleyball is your cup of tea then get ready for a wild weekend.

Actually, how about tonight.

It all kicks off in La Grande and Elgin.

The Tigers host Baker at 7 p.m.

Hard Facts: Camp sets up at Eastern Oregon

Sorry it say it, but the smell of death lingered out from the football coach’s office last season at EOU.

A 1-10 season continually dumped fuel on the putrid fire.

What has Tim Camp brought to the program in the first half of his debut season at head coach — a lot of fresh air.

Anyone who’s gone to an EOU home game this year can see it. Better yet, they can feel it.

Grin and Barrett: BCS - The Big Cash Society

I’ll begin with a shocking statement: the University of Oregon football team still has a chance at this year’s national title.

I do not believe this, I have to have some credibility.

Following one of the worst Duck losses in the history of the program, I could not help but think of this humorously.
