in Sports/Top Headlines by

It left you wanting more. In a good way. More points. More speed. More Cam Akers. More Derwin James. More Brian Burns.

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For so long, he watched. He waited. FSU safety Derwin James had become a memory. The former star for the Seminoles, perhaps one of their best defensive players, waited for 176 days – and 11 games – as his left knee healed. Now, James is back. And, yeah, it was worth the wait. “I remember the long days, it was like an everyday thing, where they would tell me, ’no no no, just take it day by day’” James told the…

But you could also suggest it might be named running back U. After Ottis Anderson, Chuck Foreman, Alonzo Highsmith, Clinton Porter and Frank Gore, why not? Here at the SaintPetersblog, however, we wondered. Who are the best 10? No, not always by yardage, but by impact. Here we go: 10. Don Bosseler (1953-1956): An early addition…

James leads Cavs to historic comeback for NBA Championship

in Sports/Top Headlines by

When Cleveland finally won its championship, and residents have been waiting to read that sentence for more than half-century, it was because the King would not allow anything else.

Tampa Bay Bucs cut former UM running back Mike James

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Backup running back Mike James didn’t help Tampa Bay on special teams. In the end, it cost him his job. In the NFL, a running back pretty much has to be a star to skip out on the special teams, which made carrying James a luxury especially in these days of three quarterbacks. In his three seasons here, James played in 20 games, rushed 79 times for 332 yards and caught 11 passes for 38 yards. James played his college…
