The Word on the Herd-Sept. 2, 2015
With that “five men, one mind” mindset, it doesn’t happen often that an offensive lineman has a chance to be personally involved in a major college football first.
It’s been a decade since Marshall football has experienced something that will take place Sunday afternoon at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.
The D’Antoni name needs no introduction in Thundering Herd history. Three of them – Andy in football; Dan and Mike in basketball – are in the Marshall Athletics Hall of Fame.
This is a story about two brothers, two universities, two sports, two teams … and one day.
Corey Bird went to Cape Cod this summer. As much as he enjoyed it, you’d think the Marshall center fielder was on a two-month vacation on Nantucket Sound.
Any basketball coach will tell you that getting a rebounding is a good thing. On occasion, a football coach will say the same.
With the 2015 college football season two weekends away – it’s Marshall’s 119th season, if you’re counting – maybe it’s time for some “political football” punditry.
Pardon Sean Cronin these days if he is not quite sure which end is up. Cronin, in his third season as Marshall’s defensive ends coach, oversees quite a daily battle for who’s going to start at the two spots when the Thundering Herd begins the 2015 season on Sept. 6 against visiting Purdue.
When the Marshall women’s golf team yells “Fore” to start the 2015-16 season in two weeks, Coach Tiffany Prats will be thinking “eight.”
The resurgence of Marshall football in the last two seasons is well-chronicled. The Herd won 23 games, grabbed a Conference USA championship and two bowl wins, found its way back into the national rankings and last season had a Conference USA-record 10 all-league first team picks.
