Hunker down: Braves snap losing skid with wins in Southern Illinois

Coming off a loss to the University of Iowa at Dozer Park, the Bradley baseball team looked to rebound in a three-game series against Southern Illinois University. And that’s exactly what it did. In the midst of a four-game losing streak, the Braves recovered by taking two of three in the series against the Salukis, winning their games on Friday and by scores of 7-4 and 7-2 respectively. However, they failed to sweep the series, as they dropped the second game Saturday with SIU. “We […]

One-on-One: What is the best sports movie?

Remember The Titans With Kevin Costner’s latest foray into the sporting world hitting theatres today, we decided we’d debate which sports movie deserves the crown of best all-time. It’s clear to me that movie is “Remember the Titans.” The movie came out in 1998. It stars Denzel Washington and includes a pre-“Scrubs” Donald Faison in it’s cast, which is a plus. The movie itself is based off of a true story, but as with most movies, not everything in it is true. I don’t care, […]

AMBITIOUS BEGINNINGS: Cloud Nothings Big Release

“I can’t feel your pain and I feel alright about it” sings Dylan Baldi on the chorus of “Now Here In”, the opening track of Cloud Nothing’s third LP “Here and Nowhere Else.” Opening with an isolated, satisfyingly distorted guitar riff followed by driving drums, steady bass and Baldi’s unmistakable vocals, “Now Here In” is a fantastic first track that leaves the listener anxiously awaiting what sort of satisfying sonic discord is yet to come. Dylan Baldi has come a long way from recording tunes […]



Student newspaper is not public relations

For those of you who don’t know: The Scout is a student-run, student-produced newspaper. And we will continue to do things this way. In the past few weeks, we’ve received criticism from members of the administration and Bradley staff for the way we do things. But we don’t think what they’re criticizing us about is fair. So, let us back up and share what exactly we do here at the newspaper. Contrary to popular belief, The Scout is not Bradley’s official public relations newsletter. We […]
