The Eagles left their nest the last two weekends, playing in Henderson, Nev., on the 8-9, and Salt Lake City on the 16-17. The team has now played four games in conference play, and results have “not quite been what [they have] wanted,” according to head coach Ammon Bennett. On Sept. 8, USUE battled against College of Southern Nevada on the Coyote’s home field. One of the Eagles’ captains, Kenneth Marse, said that the heat was intense and definitely played a factor in their inability to “really show up” during the match.

I’m sure you’ve heard about a million takes and thoughts on what Kaepernick did in a preseason game last Friday night, but I’m going to give you some more thoughts on it. Because in my opinion this is one of the most important sports stories of the year so far.
