When the CEU men's basketball team takes the court for the start of the 2003-2004 season, the team will include dramatically different player personnel from last year's 18-win team. The Golden Eagles expect 10 sophomores and five freshmen to suit up and participate come game time on November 1. In addition, six players will red shirt this year.

It was as if the CEU Lady Eagles Volleyball team was homesick and wanted to take their wins on their home court. The past few weeks have been both positive and negative for the team, winning against Colorado Northwestern and SLCC and losing to both Southern and Northern Idaho. The Eagles' offence and defense has improved, and they seemed as if they were a better team all around the court. They came across Colorado Northwestern confident and full of energy.

Jessica Silver has been playing volleyball ever since she can remember. Being the youngest of five children her family would always play on the court in their backyard. "As I watched my older sisters play, being younger I always looked up to them in what they did. When I saw them play, it made me want to play. When I would play with them I would play extra hard so that I could beat them," Silver said.

One year after splitting the sports editor responsibilities at The Eagle, I've changed schools but I'm still a sports editor. However, now I'm hanging out in the cold basement of the Union Building at Weber State University and writing for The Signpost. So in order to continue to contribute to the College of Eastern Utah, I was asked to write a guest column and take you around the horn one more time.

Washington-state born Jordan Fox made her way to Alpine, Utah in 1998. She transferred to Lone Peak High School in the first part of ninth grade. As a child growing up in Seattle, Fox was exposed to volleyball and learned the sport from her dad. "My dad is very athletic, he would play volleyball with some teams in Washington and I would go watch. He would play with me before and after his games, we would 'pepper' on the sidelines. This was when I was in elementary school, I have played every since then."

The world of sports is always changing.  As a famous quote says, "That's why you play the game."  Here is what happened in the games played last week.

Perhaps the greatest challenge in team sports is the willingness and ability of a team to collaborate. The difficulty of that task is enhanced when the individuals on the team come from different places. This is the dilemma the CEU men's basketball team faced when they assembled in Price. CEU head men's basketball coach Bryan Zollinger agrees, asserting that the most demanding aspect of his job is not teaching the game of basketball, but finding a way to correlate a group of young men from vastly different environments and backgrounds.

The Bowl Championship Series was instigated originally in 1998 in an attempt to remedy some of the problems that were existing in college football. Before the BCS, the national champion was crowned at the end of the regular season based on a team's record, strength of schedule, and some other factors. One big problem with this system is that, in any given year, there are many unbeaten teams at the end of the year, all of which would be deserving a shot at the title. This problem escalated in 1997 between the University of Michigan and the University of Nebraska.
