The Coin Toss: NFL Week 5

Welcome to The Coin Toss, where I make bold predictions about your favorite professional sports. First a recap of last week. I had the Browns over the Raiders, but Oakland took that game by three in overtime. I correctly picked the Texans over the Colts in Indianapolis. I also predicted a bounce-back game from Tom […]

Second half explosion leads football to Homecoming rout of Bates

It was a tale of two halves for the Jumbos in their Homecoming matchup against the Bates Bobcats. Facing a winless Bates team coming off a 59–16 loss to Trinity, and with a 2–0 record of its own, Tufts was heavily favored entering Saturday’s match. In the end, the Jumbos proved their superiority with a convincing […]

The Coin Toss: NFL Week 4

Welcome to The Coin Toss, where I make bold predictions about your favorite professional sports.

Jumbos prepare for challenging fall season

Football Tufts finished its 2017 season sixth in the NESCAC with a 5–4 record. Despite this decline from a 7–1 showing in 2016, the Jumbos’ talent was recognized by the league’s coaches. Seven players were named to last season’s All-NESCAC team, including four players who graduated in May. Junior linebacker Greg Holt, senior defensive back Tim […]

Jumbos cap eventful season with strong postseason showings

The Tufts men’s crew team took part in five regular-season regattas this spring — three at home on the Malden River in Medford and two in Worcester, Mass. These races came prior to the team’s two championship regattas: the New England Rowing Championships and the National Invitational Rowing Championships, both of which also took place […]

Before representing nation, MacMillen takes final strokes as a Jumbo

It’s not often that a Div. III athlete gets selected to represent their country on an international stage. However, that is exactly what happened in the case of graduating senior and co-captain Andrew MacMillen of the Tufts men’s crew team. MacMillen, or “AMac” as his friends and teammates call him, was selected to USRowing’s initial […]

Jumbos host final home regattas of the season

Both the Tufts men’s and women’s crew teams hosted regattas on the Malden River on Saturday.
