Baseball Senior Earns Preseason Accolades

NIL has manifested itself in hundreds of ways, and I think I have a new personal favorite. A pitcure of young Dieunerst Collin in a Popeyes became classic meme material. All these years later, Dieunerst is now an offensive lineman at Lake Erie College, a D-II school. Popeyes just signed Collin to an NIL deal, where he will get a billboard in his hometown as well as more content soon to come. From memes to dreams, NIL strikes again.
Coming Up This Weekend. . .
Men’s basketball returns to the Ferrell Center on Saturday as they take on Oklahoma State.
Tennis gets started on Sunday morning with an 11AM matchup against Lamar! Breakfast tacos, t-shirts, team posters, what more could you want? Get to the Hurd!
Why limit yourself to one tennis match? Stick around for a second match against Incarnate Word at 4PM and snag some pizza and post-game autographs.
Women’s basketball also competes on Sunday, playing at West Virginia at 2PM. Be sure to tune in on ESPNU to watch our ladies get back on track and Sic West Virginia!
Bears of the Day
Today’s bears of the day are these cute little cubs and their mom! They’re pillaging trash, which is kinda gross, but they’re so dang cute so I’ll let it slide.
As the need for wildlife crossings continues to gain momentum in the public consciousness, it’s also important to remember to keep all food scraps and garbage away from wildlife, especially black bears.
