The Raiders Are In Indy! The Raiders Are In Indy?

I grew up an Oakland Raiders fan, or more accurately a Los Angeles Raiders fan at the time I became a fan. I had every NFL Film they put out. “The Autumn wind…” was my ringtone for a couple of years. I worshiped Marcus Allen. If a son ever were in my future, that would be his name. I still have the Jack Tatum jersey. I even had the Todd Marinovich one. One of my happiest days as a child was when Ronnie Lott became a Raider. But I’ve also became the guy who now declares you should root for … Continue reading The Raiders Are In Indy!

Mules Golf Splits Two Matchups

Taking on a solid Bulldog team, the Fairfield Mules suffered a golf loss Wednesday in Carmi, 142-180. Carmi had their top two golfers, Ty Barbre and Oakley Gee, tie for medalist honors Kacee Fulkerson and Kaden Karter both shot 38 to give the Bulldogs the four best scores on the day. Fairfield was led by Noah McElravy, who shot a 39. Noah Barger shot a 45, Chase Hallam and Jacob Britt each shot 48s and Zach Gualdoni shot a 50. McElravy started with a birdie, and shot par of seven of the other eight holes, but had to work around … Continue reading Mules Golf Splits Two Matchups

Mules Keep Shutout Streak Alive; Beat Bearcats 42-0

The Christopher-Zeigler-Royalton Bearcats, coached by former NFL star Anthony Hargrove, have been at the bottom of the Black Diamond for several years now. But Hargrove looks to have them moving in the right direction, as they had allowed just 41 points in their first three games. Justin Townsend’s Fairfield Mules put up 42 on them Friday at the Train Yard, while the defense of the home squad kept their shutout streak going with their fourth in a row to start the season. Aired It Out Fairfield, typically a ground-and-pound attack on offense, went to the air 13 times, with junior … Continue reading Mules Keep Shutout Streak Alive; Beat Bearcats 42-0

Instant Classic: Houston-Tulane

There was a beautiful football game to watch last night. No, not the Minshew Mania Bowl, although that can be a different type of fun, because the Minshew Mustache Mafia is going to be a thing if I have anything to do with it. No, the Houston-Tulane game over on ESPN was much more entertaining, despite Houston trucking Tulane early and going up 28-7. I tuned into this one mostly because Houston quarter D’eriq King reminds me of Antwaan Randle El, Indiana’s greatest football player of my time. Tulane had never come back from more than 14 points down in … Continue reading Instant Classic: Houston-Tulane

Mules Lose Tiebreaker To Aces; Playing Without Conrad

The Fairfield Mules golf squad were playing shorthanded at home Tuesday, but still tied the visiting Aces of Mt. Carmel. The away team won the tiebreaker, however, with a better fifth score. The Mules were without senior Maverick Conrad, out with a low back injury. Either Conrad or junior Noah McElravy has led the Mules scoring in every match this year. With Conrad out, McElravy stepped up and took medalist honors, shooting a 36 to win by five strokes. He had bogeys on three and four, but bounced back with birdies on the par-5 seventh hole and the par-4 eighth … Continue reading Mules Lose Tiebreaker To Aces; Playing Without Conrad
