By Bob Keisser | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: May 6, 2019 at 8:07 pm | UPDATED: May 7, 2019 at 11:41 am The best way to start a rousing sports argument is to say some player or team is the G.O.A.T – Greatest Of All Time. So consider the argument on. The notion that the 2019 Long Beach State men’s volleyball team is the best collegiate team of all-time started as soon as the 2018 season ended with the 49ers winning the national championship. The team was returning all but one starter and had a fleet of seniors who would be playing in their fourth straight Final Four if they reached the tourney. They won back-to-back titles Saturday with a 3-1 win over a talented Hawaii team to finish 28-2. The 49ers’ 56-3 record and .949 win percentage in 2018 and 2019 is the best two-year record since UCLA in 1981-82 (61-3). Head coach Alan Knipe becomes the third coach to win back-to-back titles, joining the legendary Al Scates (UCLA) and Shane Davis (Loyola-Chicago).

Author: Nick Aiello-Popeo Publish date: Jan 4, 2019 If you pull on something hard enough, it breaks. For the late, legendary alpinist Mugs Stump, who almost became an NFL football player, that thing was the body itself—in his case the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL. When strained by 485 pounds of force, the ACL is stretched twice as tight as a piano string. Slowly, at first, the ligament’s millions of tiny collagen fibers begin to fray. The individual breakages increase exponentially until the ligament explodes with an audible “snap.” The town of Glenrio, sitting astride the boundary of Texas and New Mexico, is a model of confliction. With a surveyor’s mistake in 1859, Glenrio was cleaved down the middle by the border. Even its name is a pastiche of half English, half Spanish that means “valley river.” But unassuming Glenrio (pop. 30)—or a nearby border town, depending on which of Stump’s contemporaries … [Read more...] about Ascendant: How Quitting Professional Football Launched Mugs Stump’s Climbing Career
