Could football be Cleveland State's not-so-secret pastime?

Baseball has been called “America's pastime” for years now, but the truth might surprise some.

Indeed, sometime in the early 1990s it was football that overtook baseball as the favorite sport of thirty-one percent of respondents to a Harris Interactive poll of 2,331 adults. Baseball is ranked third with 17%.

For Cleveland State students, one might assume football to not be the sport of choice, however. Indeed, CSU’s lack of a football team could mean that the trends for students differ compared to the national ones.

Grady leads Vikings' freshmen


New to Cleveland State and CSU basketball in particular, are four freshmen. Anton Grady, Charles Lee, Marlin Mason and Ike Nwamu all have joined the Vikings for this upcoming season.

He played on four sectional championship teams, three district championship teams, two regional championship teams, one state championship team and another that finished as the runner-up.

The runner-up finish came this past season when the Cleveland native led the Ironmen to a 19-9 record by averaging 22.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, 4.4 blocked shots and 3.8 assists.

Women's golf ends fall season

The Cleveland State women’s golf team handled a poor loss in the first round of the Zippy Invitational in Akron on October 17th.  They came back stronger the next day finishing fifth of seventh moving up one spot.

It wasn’t a great win for the girls, but head coach Steve Weir believes they did well.  They didn’t win, but they broke the school record of 315 set on Oct. 9, 2008. 

“We played a very poor first round,” said Weir. “The team responded and broke the school record in the second round. “

One player stood out.  Ariel Sparrow, a junior, almost beat the school record ending with a 73.  Katie Broere, who shot a 72, made the school record in March of 2008.

Cleveland State
swimming and diving looking great this year

The Cleveland State men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams kicked off their 2011-12 season with two firsts in program history. On Oct. 8, CSU participated at the Michigan State University Long Course Invitational. This season opener was the first time in school history where the teams have participated in the first official long course meet.

The long course consisted of 50 meters, the official Olympic distance.
Not only was this the first long course meet, but it also marked the first outdoor meet in program history. When you have a men’s swimming and diving program that has been around since 1931, and a women’s team which was founded in 1972, there aren’t a lot of program firsts left to achieve.

“It’s special to kickoff the season in an Olympic year in an Olympic pool with Olympic events,” said head coach Wally Morton, who has been a part of many firsts as he enters his 38th year at CSU. This will be Morton’s 31st season in charge of the men’s team and fifth overseeing the women’s team.

Once again the Browns are clowns

Why is it that every year the Cleveland Browns can’t win the division, let alone have a winning season? This has been on the minds of all Cleveland fans for decades. There has to be a reason as to why this team can’t go back to the glory days in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The teams in the NFL that have been just atrocious over the past five years have been Buffalo, Detroit, St. Louis and Cleveland. The surprising thing is that Detroit and Buffalo have been winning this year and making a name for themselves.
