David Sayler talks Miami Athletics Construction

+

Voice of the RedHawks Steve Baker interviews Miami AD David Sayler about various construction projects going on around Oxford this summer. In addition to what we already knew about -- an indoor practice facility for football, replacing seats and lighting in Millett Hall, a new weight room for hockey -- we learn that Miami basketball is getting a much more colorful new court next year. Good things on the way!

Chad Ford has Javon McCrea to 76ers in Updated Mock Draft

+

According to Chad Ford's latest mock draft published today on ESPN.com (unfortunately an Insider article), the 2014 NBA Draft on Thursday may get a little MAC flavor. Ford has Buffalo Forward Javon McCrea going 54th overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. In the mock Ford gives McCrea some great reviews, even calling him sleeper pick in the draft. McCrea averaged 18.5 points and 9.9 rebounds per game last year for the Bulls. The 76ers need players at the forward spot and McCrea would be a great fit. Besides starter Thaddeous Young, Philadelphia didn't have a consistent forward this season. Brandon Davies and Lavoy Allen split time as backups but they were not viable options. The NBA Draft airs on ESPN Thursday night at 7:30 eastern.

Her avatar is still (probably just created the account four minutes ago) an egg, and her bio reads: "Shamed into the world of Twitter by my co-workers to create a personal account ... ready or not, here I go"

Rob Blake: Hockey Hall of Famer

+

Rob Blake started his career with the Bowling Green Falcon hockey team. He was a CCHA First Teamer before joining the NHL, where he had a stellar career. 240 goals, 537 assists, and 1679 penalty minutes later, and he retired as one of the most dominant enforcers the game has known. Now, he's a Hall of Famer. Blake joins fellow classmates Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, and Mike Modano in one of the more stacked classes in recent memory. Congrats to Blake, as he more than deserves this high honor

It's like, I get it, but I don't get it. Oh well, the Zips needed new unis, and a tweet by Terry Bowden is a fitting presentation for how these turned out.

Battle For the Bell Rivalry To Renew In 2019, 2020

3

While the Miami RedHawks are the Ohio Bobcats' conference rivals, some would argue (this writer included) Marshall is the biggest rivalry for the 'Cats. Sadly, since Marshall is no longer in the MAC, it's up to the schools to ensure the rivalry continues in the non-conference season, and after this fall the rivalry, which dates back more than 100 years, would enter another long hiatus. Good news though, we now know when it'll resume: 2019, as part of a two-year deal.

EMU's Getting Gray Turf, WMU Should Scrap Turf Alltogeher

Since EMU is getting new gray turf, their rivals, the WMU Broncos should seize the moment and update their playing surface altogether. Since brown turf sounds awful, I propose the Broncos fully embrace the "Row the Boat" lifestyle and dig out the playing surface to form a pond. They can even fill the pond with those deadly "nekton" sharks they're always going on about. Talk about a home field advantage.

Somehow this is supposed to help out with attendance AND look cool at the same time.
