MOON TOWNSHIP -- The Robert Morris Colonials football team (0-3, 2-5) is nearing the end of their 2018 season. Throughout the year, the consistent talking point has been the struggles of the RMU defense. While this is completely fair criticism that comes with a disappointing 0-3 conference record, I pers...

Recently, the Robert Morris men's basketball team released their schedule for the 2018-2019 season. When looking at the schedule, the first thought that came to my mind was, "Where is Duquesne?" Now, there are three Division I college programs within 30 minutes of the city of Pittsburgh, but it seems...

Rome wasn’t built in a day. That’s probably the most overused expression when urging someone to be patient, but in this case, that expression is meaningful. It’s meaningful because there is a new head coach who patrols the sidelines for Robert Morris’s once proud football program. The Colonials...

After beating Duquesne, Dachon Burke said something that has lingered with me ever since. “Well, every game means a lot, but I think it says for itself,” said Burke. “You have Pitt, Duquesne and Robert Morris. I think sometimes we’re overshadowed because they’re the two in the city.” Nobody...

After a coaching search that included 160 candidates, Robert Morris football has found its man in former Albany defensive coordinator Bernard Clark. Given the hire seemed to come out of nowhere, the question that should be on everyone’s mind is, was this a good hire for Robert Morris? If you...

Earlier in the season, I predicted that the Robert Morris Colonials would finish within the top three in the Northeast Conference. I cited their strong defense, seemingly improved offense and the weak NEC as reasons for this prediction. I definitely did not think that they wouldn’t even finish around...

Reality is, it’s unfair to expect the players of Robert Morris volleyball to do great things, but it’s also unfair to completely write them off this season. It’s important to note that eight of the Colonials' thirteen players this season are true freshmen. This is the big reason as to why one...

After watching Jimmy Walker escape the pocket and make plays like a young Ben Roethlisberger, the perspective on this team changed. No longer are the running backs the key to this offense. While the running backs are still a talented bunch, it is the quarterback play of Jimmy Walker that will make or...

Last week, for the first time in 17 years, Robert Morris defeated a great FCS program in Dayton by the score of 13-10. Only head equipment manager Ray Butter was on the staff the last time this team beat Dayton. Some people don’t want you to think too much into the first game of the season. I,...
