Oral Roberts Builds School Spirit With Bald Eagle Flying Into Window

At some sort of welcome-back-to-campus event yesterday, Oral Roberts University paid tribute to its mascot by bringing in a real, live Bald Eagle. The eagle got a little disoriented. Did we mention the chapel has enormous glass walls? » 8/22/13 3:08pm 8/22/13 3:08pm

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles

1. Three In A Row. It's the third consecutive tournament appearance for the Golden Eagles, and their seed seems to grow each year. Two years ago, they were a No. 16 seed, and one major national basketball analyst predicted them to beat No. 1 seed Memphis. (Didn't happen.) In 1973, the team reached the Elite Eight… » 3/16/08 1:54pm 3/16/08 1:54pm

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles

1. So, Then, Why The Hell Are You At Oral Roberts? The Golden Eagles, in the tournament for the second year in a row, are defined by their star player, Caleb Green. He's a 6-8 forward who has won the Mid-Continent player of the year award three years in a row, which I guarantee will never happen again in any major… » 3/11/07 12:00am 3/11/07 12:00am

Kansas Upset Allows Opponents To Live A Little Longer

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles

1. Bill Self Was There Back When He Had Real Hair. Kansas' toupeed head coach started his coaching career at Oral Roberts in the mid '90s, a mere 10 years ago.

Who's Got Bracket Fever?

We're just five days away from Selection Sunday — which, in combination with the season premiere of "The Sopranos," is pretty much more fun than any day should be allowed to be — and we're still working on our big NCAA Tournament Project. (All teams remain signed up for. Honestly, you guys rule.) » 3/07/06 12:15pm 3/07/06 12:15pm

They Must Draw 6,000 Fans, Or God Will Call Them Home

So we were watching the Illini's 89-64 victory over Southeast Missouri State last night — we have the ESPN Full Court package; you honestly do not want to know how much money we give that network — and when it was over, we flipped around the other games. It was a bad Full Court night; nothing but blowouts, except for… » 12/29/05 9:39am 12/29/05 9:39am
