The monkey is finally off the Eastern women’s soccer team’s back as the Panthers lead a comeback against Chicago State for the team’s first win of the season.

The conditions were right. A confluence of factors, namely the 84-degree heat and a reliable Eastern attack after halftime, delivered the Panthers’ first victory.

While the Eastern football team struggled to move the ball on offense Saturday, mustering just 197 total yards, Illinois State on the other hand was able to do just enough on offense to spoil the Panthers home opener in a 21-3 win.  Eastern’s defense did its part to limit Illinois State in the loss, t...

It was brought up in Eastern head coach Adam Cushing’s interview for the job; it was apparent to him even during his first week on Eastern’s campus that beating Illinois State on the football field was a priority for the Panthers.

After the first week of the season, the volleyball teams in the OVC were struggling as a whole; the 12 teams in the conference posted a record of just 9-28 in that span.

It is rare in Division I college football for a program to start a freshman on the offensive line. Typically, the responsibility of protecting a quarterback and clearing lanes for ball carriers is reserved for veteran players on the roster. When a freshman does crack the starting lineup on the...

Perhaps the best thing to come from the men’s soccer team’s 2-0 victory Tuesday is the placement of certain personnel on the field. Since I started covering the team last year, I have admired the way Eastern midfielder Cole Harkrader plays. This year, as a returning starter in the midfield, he is...
