The NFL and NCAA are currently discussing the possibility that players who are found to have received improper benefits from agents during their college careers could face suspensions and fines upon entering the NFL Draft. The talks come just weeks after a controversial Sports Illustrated article chronicling the 20-year career of agent Josh Luchs, who claims to have paid more than 30 former college football players in the 1990s.

Phillies’ Halladay makes history, says no-no to Reds

IUS Horizon October 10, 2010
The Cincinnati Reds made the playoffs for the first time this season since 1995. I was all set to write about what that means to long-suffering Reds fans, but then Roy Halladay no-hit the Reds in Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Wednesday, Oct. 6. The no-hitter — and to a greater extent the perfect game — have proven to be two of the most difficult feats to achieve in sports.

Ready for some football

IUS Horizon September 5, 2010
The NFL regular season kicks off Thursday, Sept. 9, with a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings. I, for one, could not be more excited. The Saints won that game, advancing to the first Super Bowl in franchise history and went on to defeat the Indianapolis Colts to win Super Bowl XLIV. That’s what’s so exciting about the NFL. You never really know what’s going to happen.

This upcoming season for IUS women’s volleyball has those who remember last year, which was derailed by a swine flu outbreak on the team, thinking about redemption.

Beginning this summer, Pell Grants are available to qualifying students, due to the Higher Education Opportunity Act enacted on Aug. 14, 2008.
