2015 CBD Journal with Army’s Alex Jensen (August 11th)

cbd_journal_jensenWhile driving back to West Point on Sunday morning from my hometown in Charlotte, NC., I was able to do a lot of thinking. Ten hours in a car by yourself affords you that opportunity. My mind wondered between reminiscing about my last summer at home as a college student and how fast the college experience goes.

This not only relates to collegiate athletes but also anyone who is currently studying in college. Continue reading

The Ice Bucket Challenge

pete_mainAs we have written about off and on over the last couple of seasons, former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates has been diagnosed with ALS or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He has taken this diagnosis to raise awareness for the disease and raise money for research.

Here are a few samplings from players/coaches around the nation taking part.  You can donate to the cause by clicking here. If you have taken the challenge tweet at us @CB_Daily with your video or comment below. Continue reading

UNLV releases 2015 Schedule

UNLVTimChambersFeaturedLAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – UNLV baseball head coach Tim Chambers released his 2015 schedule on Monday and a total of 30 regular-season games will be played at Earl E. Wilson Stadium, which is six more than last season, while the Rebels will be on the road for 25 games.

Matchups with nationally prominent teams from the Big 10, Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences and historically strong teams from the Big West Conference, West Coast Conference and Western Athletic Conference will highlight Chambers’ fifth season at the school.

“In 2014 we played a very tough non-conference schedule and were rewarded by earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament,” Chambers said. “So we are using that idea again this year to play some teams that are consistently ranked in the top 25. We also promised our recruits that they would have an opportunity to play at some great ballparks and play some tough teams.” Continue reading
