• The Panthers’ Double-Edged Sword – The Portal

    After head basketball coach Jonas Hayes took the job at Georgia State, he was immediately met with a disadvantage. He was losing a lot of his players to graduation and the transfer portal. The players transferring weren’t leaving due to Hayes in particular, but they saw situations that better fit their collegiate basketball careers. Corey Allen, Kane Williams and big man Eliel Nsoseme – all seniors, left the program for graduation. In the portal, he [...]
  • Is John Collins Essential To This Hawks Team Anymore?

    On August 4, 2021,  John Collins reportedly agreed to a five-year, $125M deal to stay with the Atlanta Hawks, per excelbasketball agents. Sean Kennedy and Jeff Schwartz were the first to report this information to ESPN. Fast forward almost two years later and this re-signing gives many Hawks fans the “ick.” Not the “ick” in the idea of sickness, but closer to the feeling Nets fans felt when Kevin Durant left his pinky toe on [...]
  • What free agents will make the biggest impact for the Falcons?

    Atlanta is off to a hot start early in the NFL’s new calendar year, entering the off-season with the third-highest cap space in the league. This was evident as the Falcons made many key additions during this year’s free-agency period. The dirty birds were able to sign a total of eleven different players and re-sign four of their own.  Atlanta was able to extend some of their most productive players from a season ago, bringing [...]
  • Breaking down what makes Alex Anthopoulos the best GM in baseball

    After a disappointing end in the NLDS last season, the Atlanta Braves are hungry and determined to live up to the expectations of a fanbase just two years removed from a World Series title. The Braves had a quiet offseason, partially due to the front office reaching long-term deals with most of the young nucleus that made up an integral part of the team during the 2022 season.  Although some in the media believed the [...]
  • Why the Falcons should consider pursuing Lamar Jackson

    On March 7th, the Baltimore Ravens announced they would be placing the non-exclusive franchise tag on former MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson. With this designation, Jackson is allowed to negotiate a long-term deal with other teams around the league. However, the Ravens still hold the keys to his future with the organization able to match any offer Jackson receives. Even if the Ravens didn’t match the offer, they would receive two compensatory first-round picks from whichever [...]
  • The “Bus Lot Bombers” 2023 season outlook

    The Georgia State baseball team, also known as “The Bus Lot Bombers,” have come out of the gates firing on all cylinders to start the 2023 season. There were plenty of question marks up and down this opening day lineup after an offseason that saw key veterans depart from the program. If the Panthers can continue this type of production throughout the season, this will be the best team in Georgia State history by a [...]
  • What can fans expect from Desmond Ridder next season?

    During the 2022 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons took Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder in the third round. In his final season with the Bearcats, he set the record for the most wins by a college quarterback in FBS history before he ultimately led his team to its first appearance in the college football playoffs. With the trade rumors surrounding Lamar Jackson seemingly disappearing, Atlanta has made it clear that it will be utilizing the draft [...]
  • Are Trae Young’s Antics Hurting The Hawks?

    Leadership is tough. Every human is different, down to the specks of DNA that lie beneath their fingertips. Kobe was similar to Jordan on almost every level – down to the mentality they approached their everyday lives with. Yet, this isn’t a Micheal Jordan – Kobe Bryant identical plays piece. Lebron James’ leadership has been questioned throughout the years, dating back to his pre-villain era when he made The Decision. Yet, this isn’t a critique [...]
  • What does Quin Snyder bring to the Hawks?

    The Atlanta Hawks have been nothing short of disappointing this season as they have struggled to live up to the hype generated during the off-season. A period that saw them acquire former San Antonio Spurs guard Dejounte Murray, pairing him alongside Atlanta’s all-star point guard Trae Young. There isn’t one particular reason why this season hasn’t been what most people expected. The coaching staff and players didn’t seem to be on the same page which [...]
  • 2023 Georgia State Football Season Outlook

    Georgia State football has been steadily improving over the past six years. Hiring head coach Shawn Elliot was a huge turning point for the program. Since he stepped on campus, all his teams have done is rewrite school record books and overachieve. He entered the building and immediately started creating a culture and environment conducive to winning. Elliot recruited the state of Georgia with his zealous approach and brought in capable athletes that aligned with [...]
  • Men’s Golf in full swing

    The Georgia State Men’s Golf team has swung deep into its 2022 season schedule. The Panthers are back in action after falling to rival Georgia Southern in the semifinal of last season’s Sun Belt Championship tournament. Entering his sixth year, head coach Chad Wilson will have to navigate the course with a squad featuring only two upperclassmen with a large portion of the team consisting of freshmen. The first stop on that course would be [...]
  • Georgia State Soccer Regular Season Recap

    Regular season play is now over in the Sun Belt. The Georgia State Panthers are getting ready to start postseason tournament play, but let’s take a look at how the team played as a whole this season.  Statistics: This season Georgia State was top-five in eight stat categories as a team.

  • The Falcons’ offense needs a heavy dose of Kyle Pitts

    The Atlanta Falcons selected Kyle Pitts with the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, making him the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history. Pitts is a 6’5, 245-pound athletic freak who ran an unofficial 4.44 40-yard dash at his pro day. Pitts has a wingspan of 83 3/8” and is in the 100th percentile among all tight ends since 1999. The University of Florida product was built in a lab. The NFL has [...]
  • The Hawks have more than just a dynamic duo

    To say the Atlanta Hawks are back to 2021 Eastern Conference Finals form would be a stretch, but it wouldn’t be that elastic if you catch the Hawks’ drift.  Ever since that magical playoff run that began in Madison Square Garden, the Hawks have been disappointing. To be fair, they surpassed what the team and fans expected out of them. To be honest, that team did what most thought they needed a couple more years [...]
  • Cross Country Season Wrap Up

    After last season’s two top-20 finishes and an eighth-place finish in the Sun Belt Conference Championship, cross country is ready to run it back with familiar faces and new signees.

Ana Cubillo of Aranda de Duero, Burgos, Spain, rounded out the incoming class.  Graduate student Emma Devis decided to [...]
