College hoops AP poll released, basketball’s back, baby

In light of the college basketball preseason AP Poll being released, I would like to take this opportunity to say that it is officially basketball season. The NBA started last week, college football is more or less a wrap, every NFL team not named the Rams is unbelievably mediocre. So with the poll dropping, I’m […]


Campus Cover 041: There’s So Much Blood

This week we lead off with picks, talk about the week seven that was, the playoff picture, and then a little game in honor of the NBA opener. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student Union Sports. Not only do we have your picks of the […]


Campus Cover 040: Your Rankings Suck!

If polls are really just subjective interpretations.. why do we take them so seriously? How should the polls be figured? We take a look at this debate, the best teams ATS, and of course, our picks of the week. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student […]


Campus Cover 039: Transfer Talk

Kelly Bryant transfers from Clemson.. should Jalen Hurts do the same at Alabama? We discuss this, play a couple new games, and feed you a ton of correct picks. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student Union Sports. Not only do we have your picks of […]


A case for an alternative Big Ten Championship game

Ohio State is the best team in the Big Ten. This isn’t really a hot take or news in any way. Even without head coach Urban Meyer, they got off to a great start, outscoring opponents in the first three weeks 169-62, including a signature non conference win against a stout TCU team. But let’s […]


Campus Cover 037: We’re Baaaaack

We.. um… had some issues come up and are just now returning, but the Campus Cover makes its triumphant return just in time for week 3! In this episode we discuss early season overreactions, what we love through the first two weeks, give out picks for week 3, and, of course, pick some mascot battles. […]


Deep ball beauty

There are certain things in the world that are simply too beautiful to be described in plain English. Instead, one needs to delve into comparisons and figurative language to explain the sensation. For example, The Pieta is a sculpture in St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome. This summer, I vacationed and made a stop at the […]

Student Union CFB Preview: Duke Blue Devils

Las season, Duke’s young core led by the not-so-young David Cutcliffe had a season that looked a lot like a large, desolate valley in between two beautifully verdant hills. Their youth showed many flashes to begin the year, a large part of the reason I chose them as one of my gambling muses, fell into […]


Campus Cover 033: Johnny Rambos

Cody and PJ return from the summer break along with guest Johnny Rambos of the Johnny Rambos podcast. They talk home run derby, NBA summer league, and it devolves from there.

Campus Cover 32: NBA draft special and other stuff

Welcome to the Campus Cover, a gambling (~kinda~) podcast that uses that as the main point to talk about everything in sports. Hosted by PJ Guippone and (@pjguip1) and Cody Goggin (@CodyGoggin), we talk about college sports and gambling because if you really think about it, nothing else actually matters. In this episode, we talk […]


The Student Union Sports Podcast: #WorldCupWoes

Special late night Summer edition of the Student Union Sports Podcast for the real fans out there. Today’s topics include World Cup gambling woes and the age old debate of Cigs vs JUUL…I know, riveting stuff as always. Guests include Clemson Carl, PJ Guippone and Bucky Grimes. Todays Segments/Topics 1:01: What qualifies as chain smoking? […]


Marvin Bagley is my new favorite player

Draft day is under a week away and the best young players in the nation are anxiously awaiting the lips on Adam Silver’s phallic head to utter the words “And with the _____ pick in the NBA draft…” In the meantime, shoe companies are courting these players the same way college coaches did one year […]


NBA draft prospects as songs from “ye”

On the first day of this wonderful month of June, Kanye West released his highly anticipated album, which he named “ye.” It was greeted with extremely mixed opinions, with even some of the most devout Kanye fans failing to see the merit in the seven-song, 23-minute “album.” Everyone that is not a Yeezus stan seemed […]


A case for Bamba at number one

People have been asking me a lot recently about what I like to do for fun. “What are your hobbies?” they ask me, expecting a normal response of something like “Oh I love riding my bike through the city” or “I’m a total movie snob.” Instead, it generally warrants a bit of a chuckle from […]


Campus Cover 031: Delayed NFL Draft Talk with Andy Jones

The Campus Cover (@TheCampusCover) is a Student Union Sports podcast featuring Cody Goggin (@CodyGoggin) and PJ Guippone (@pjguip1) primarily focusing on college sports gambling and pure nonsense. This week we had some scheduling conflicts so instead of throwing out unresearched college baseball takes, we’ll push that back to next week. Instead, here is the NFL […]

Lottery mock 1.0 on day one of the combine

The NBA Draft order is set after the results of the Lottery were revealed. For the second half of this week, the draft combine is taking place, which accomplishes 3 main things for me. One is this, by a really brilliant twitter account of which I’m not really sure of the man in charge (it’s […]


Acceptable reasons to be a fan of a college

I feel like I should include a trigger warning at the beginning of this because people really value their fandom. People create reasons to love teams and they convince themselves that it is a valid rationale. For professional franchises, sometimes it works because of a love of a player or similar sentimental reasonings. It’s different […]


Saquon Barkley is a bad golfer

I have a beef that is pointless and a complete waste of time but also I didn’t have to go to work today and I just ate my last pack of ramen so I’m bored. This picture of Saquon Barkley golfing came out today and the man just continues to prove himself to be a […]

The Ramblers hit the diamond

Today, Wrigley Field was filled with champions as the 2015 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs invited the 2018 South Regional Champion Loyola-Chicago Ramblers to their home ballpark. Loyola, who made an extremely unlikely run to the Final Four in March, received almost a negative amount of credit for their dodging of tournament obstacles. Instead, their […]

1 v 1 game of Final Four heroes

For those of you that were not too deeply involved with baseball season yet or didn’t get lost down the Tiger rabbit hole in preparation for the Masters this weekend, I’m assuming you were glued to your TV for NCAA Final Four weekend. The women kicked it off on Friday with two absolutely electric basketball […]


Jay Wright has created a powerhouse like no other

Now about twelve hours removed from Villanova’s second national championship in three years, it is clear this victory is bigger than this season. Of course, the Wildcats absolutely waltzed to this championship, winning every game by at least 11 points, but the impact of this team is bigger than that. Looking in the short historical […]


Campus Cover 27: Mean Sister Jean

The Campus Cover is a podcast hosted by PJ Guippone (@pjguip1) and Cody Goggin (@CodyGoggin) that revolves around college sports with a gambling twist. The boys have fun under the cover and talk about everything college sports but also have digressions of music, pop culture, UAB Football, and everything in between. In this Final Four […]


Remember that time Nevada didn’t foul?

There are certain things in sports that just do not need to be over thought. If your best hitter is at the plate, don’t play percentages and use a pinch hitter. If it’s 4th and 1 on your opponent’s 40 yard line, go for it (this one is just starting to gain traction, but is […]


Is Sister Jean rooting for Nevada tonight?

Since Loyola-Chicago took the floor last weekend, there has been an equal amount of camera time on the team and a woman who can not really stand on her own or even celebrate like a normal sports fan. Sister Jean has dominated headlines and tweets and SportsCenter and Barstool articles and seemingly every single one […]

Stop pretending you know anything about the bracket

Alright so I have good news and bad news. The good news is its March. This means the greatest playoffs in the world are live and with them, sports gambling will run rampant through schools, friend groups and even your family home thanks to the wonders of bracket pools. At ten bucks a bracket, you […]


On the anniversary of the buzzer-beater that never was and 6 overtimes

On this day in 2009, the Syracuse Orange and the UConn Huskies battled in what is not only one of the best games in Big East history, but one of the best games in the history of college hoops. Following two high-paced and back-and-forth, but normal, periods of play in the quarterfinal matchup, Eric Devendorf […]


Michigan Wolverines: Poised For A Title Run

For the second straight year, Michigan has won four games in four days to become Big 10 champions. Now back-to-back champions, last year was more surprising, but this year was not really expected. Last year this team won the Big 10 tournament, then proceeded to go to the Sweet 16 as an unlikely Cinderella team. […]


Things less secure than John Calipari’s job

Today, USA Today came out with their annual report of college basketball coaches’ salaries. And as usual, the list is filled with some noteworthy numbers that could either be salaries or distances between certain stars in outer space. With Pitino and his astronomical Adidas endorsement gone, Coach K rings in at number one with a […]


Stop blaming the kids for the NCAA scandals

The NCAA finds itself in a situation much like that one Nazi’s face in The Raiders of the Lost Ark: melting slowly into a pile of dank and disgusting evil goop. With scandal after scandal arising, stories are dropping faster than the bags dropping that are causing the scandals in the first place. Although not […]


Some bold predictions with March around the corner

Today, in the midst of my daunting class schedule, I received a text message while walking from my second-to-last class to my last class. March is just around the corner and it is something a lot of people forget. February’s length makes the college basketball onslaught of the next month surprise even the biggest of […]


Michael Porter Jr. is back, maybe

Before the season began, Missouri’s stud freshman, Michael Porter Jr., was the number one draft pick according to many analysts. Following two minutes against Iowa State in a game that was supposed to be his coming out party, he was one of one from the field and two rebounds, he suffered a back injury that […]


Virginia or brick wall, my column

Instead of writing my midterm essay, I flipped on college basketball, like I very often do. Virginia is hosting Georgia Tech in their home arena currently and despite the fact that Virginia games are as close as a basketball game can be to the polar ice caps melting, I decided I would do my due […]


This should be the year of the Mid Major

With a good amount of this college basketball season under my belt, I feel comfortable making a couple conclusion. Every team, with the exception of (maybe) three, sucks. Every conference, with the exception of none, sucks. Because of this, if any year were to be the year of the mid major, it would be this […]


SU bracketology breakdown: Big East

On Sunday, the tournament selection committee released their early top 16 tournament seeds. A lot of it is fairly perplexing. A Michigan State team that beat Purdue on Saturday and is three in the most recent AP Poll found itself on the three line. Oklahoma, which has been basically in free fall the last few […]


Temple to seek approval for on-campus stadium

The history of Temple University football is fairly uneventful and generally not very important. Three years ago, Matt Rhule turned the program into one of the best teams in the American Athletic Conference and even a nationally ranked team. A defeat of Penn State for the first of its kind in program history established a […]

College hoops trade machine

The NBA trade deadline is upon us and a week and has been heating up recently, with a blockbuster deal sending Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons in return for roughly the entire city of Detroit. Many other names are the subject of Woj Bombs, most notably DeAndre Jordan, Julius Randle and Lou Williams (the […]


Big East Beat: midseason review

With six weeks remaining until everyone’s favorite CBS overindulgence, Selection Sunday, conference seasons are in full swing and the field of 64 is starting to come into view. Lunardi’s weekly bracketology has the Big East as one of the most represented leagues in the nation, coming in weekly with six or seven entrants. Of those, […]

Phil Booth suffers broken bone in hand

Before Villanova faced Providence last night, I had a conversation with one of my roommates. I am high on Nova and have been all year. I have said numerous times on The Campus Cover that this Nova team, which is the best we have seen ever, is also the best team in the country by […]

Student Union College Football Awards

All-Americans have been chosen. Positional awards are all off the table. The Heisman went to Baker Mayfield. And now, a national champion has been crowned. There is still one set of awards that need to be given out, and they may be the most prestigious of all. The Student Union College Football Awards, chosen and […]
