Gerald Duncan grew up in South-Central during the 1970s. Around eighth grade, basketball grew past these other sports. Duncan played against his older brother and other bigger, stronger players who didn't give him an inch. Eventually, basketball and accounting led to Cal State San Bernardino. Duncan's four-year Coyote basketball career is splashed across the all-time Coyote basketball records. He has the most field-goal attempts of any Coyote and the most points. In reality, it's not close. He has 1694 career points. Second place has 1399. Duncan, however, is not in the Coyote Athletics Hall of Fame. “I feel like sports-wise, I deserve it,” Duncan said. “I really want to get … [Read more...] about Gerald Duncan: “I left everything on the court so I can regret nothing.”

Athletes abusing steroids in professional sports is a conversation that has been spoken about ever since their discovery. From baseball, basketball, to mixed martial arts, there have been countless cases in where a sport icon has been caught with a banned substance and has faced serious consequences. Athletes can lose anything from sponsorships, scholarships and even fan support, which is believed to be an integral part of creating the individual's image. But what do those who aren't athletes, who are fans of the sport, think of those who willingly use performance-enhancing drugs, PEDs, to cheat their way to the top? While many are against it, there are those who think … [Read more...] about PEDs in Sports, What Does the Public Think?

We have so many sports, so much space with grass fields, but no stadium. I sat down with Brian Gaul, the Assistant Athletic Director of Marketing and Athletic Communications to discuss the reasons why CSUSB does not have a football team. There are many reasons why there is not a team, and all of those reasons need to be attended to before we even think about starting a football team. One of the biggest issues is funding. There are no Division 2 football teams in Southern California, so the team would have to travel to the Midwest to compete and that’s a huge expense. There would need to be a big push from all of the CSU’s to have football teams to have people to … [Read more...] about Why Doesn’t CSUSB Have a Football Team?

The remix of Luis Fonsi's Despacito stops and lights finally fill the Coussoulis Arena. As soon as the referee blows his whistle to announce the start of the game, students jump out of their seats and start chanting. Mesmerized by the volume of the chants and screams and the scene of the blue waves of fans in their CSUSB sweatshirts, kids have forgotten that they have snacks in their hands. Game day has arrived. Down on the court, there's a man dressed in CSUSB paraphernalia - blue wig, blue cape, and blue sleeves - from head to toe. His face is painted in blue and white. It's Coyote Man. For years, the crusader in his blue cape has been seen at every home game, rain or shine. … [Read more...] about Who is the Coyote Man?
