    A Lipscomb pep band comeback?

    The atmosphere in Allen Arena is about to change drastically. According to Landon Parrish, Special Assistant to President McQueen, Lipscomb University will have a full-fledged band playing at every basketball game this year. Parrish says, “Without a band, Allen arena just feels empty during games. You can fill dead air during timeouts and transitions with piped-in music from a computer along with the cheer team, but there’s just something missing.” This wouldn’t be the first time Allen Arena’s court is met with live music. Since 2001, the university has had different versions of a band at many games. Parrish has been there to see all of them. The history starts…

    Lipscomb volleyball wins Battle of the Boulevard on emotional night

    For the tenth straight time, the Lipscomb Bisons volleyball got the better of Belmont with a 3-0 sweep of the Bruins. Tuesday night at Allen Arena was much bigger than the Battle of the Boulevard, however. It was a night to remember Michael Currin, a fun-loving person who was a good friend of senior defensive specialist Delaney Smith. Currin, who passed away on September 21, 2020, at the age of 19, was honored during the pregame ceremonies last night. Before the first serve, a moving video about his life came on. It talked about how his father had died of a heart attack in the years before his death and…

    Tyler Jordan: The future of Lunacy

    The Lippy Lunatics are back and in a dramatic fashion. This student section started a year ago. After traveling down to Kennesaw State last year for the ASUN tournament basketball game and being just as loud as the home crowd, everyone knew this student section was different. This year is already off to a hot start. The lunatics traveled to Lexington, Kentucky, for a men’s soccer game, and cheered in the Kentucky Wildcats stadium. However, what happens when the older generation of lunatics graduates and moves on? What happens to the next generation of lunatics? Tyler Jordan, a freshman from Ventura, California, is ready to take the reins of “Lunacy”…

    Lipscomb baseball documentary wins prestigious Murrow Award

    The eighteen minute and thirty-seven second video documentary captured more than just the story of the iconic Nashville Sounds’ scoreboard — it captured the cherished memories of players, coaches, and the people of Nashville. The Grand Ole Guitar is more than just any old scoreboard. As interviewee and former Sounds pitcher R.A. Dickey said in the video, “in my mind it’s the Nashville landmark. If I could put in my backyard, I would try, that’s how much I think it means to this city.” The Lipscomb University School of Communication team poured hundreds of hours into the video documentary project. The proposal for the video had been selected through a…

    The unorthodox path: 3 Lipscomb athletes who went unique routes

Examples include the journey from Division III basketball to the NBA by Miami heat guard Duncan Robinson or Simone Biles winning five medals in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. We love sports because of the special moments and journeys like the ones above. However, these stories go far beyond the national level. Stories like these can even appear at Lipscomb, with three featured in this article. These…

    When does fan behavior become lunacy?

    It all started with silence. At a place where you’d expect to hear a crowd. At the start of the 2022 season, sophomore sports management major Jackson Gibree said he could hear the sound of a pin drop during the volleyball game in Allen Arena. “How [can you have] this many people here with nobody standing up, nobody loud? Why are we not using our home-court advantage?” After Jackson asked himself these questions, you might say he grabbed the ball and ran with it. What started as a small GroupMe eventually grew to an Instagram account of almost 600 followers, and a new student section – the Lippy Lunatics –…

    Jelldrik Dallmann appreciates the rewards from this year’s championship soccer season

    Months ago, before the Lipscomb men’s soccer team played in the ASUN conference championship final, senior forward Jelldrik Dallmann of Kuhstedt, Germany, mentioned that his dream was to win a championship ring – and had been since he’d come to the United States. The Bisons went on to do just that – win the final game, take the title of ASUN champions and win their rings. On top of all of that, Dallmann was named the ASUN Player of the Year for the 2022 season. Once the championship rings made their way to Lipscomb’s campus, the team held a ceremony. That tangible reward was new to Dallmann. “They don’t have…

    Inside the life of TB3

    The life of a student-athlete comes with many difficulties. School alone is a challenge, but balancing school and sports comes with challenges of its own. Trae Benham (also known as “TB3”), a sophomore guard at Lipscomb, puts it this way, “There’s not a whole lot of things you can do outside of basketball and school just because you’re days kinda hectic…” Obviously, it is a difficult job, but there are many upsides as well. You can learn a whole lot. “It kind of gets easier as the year goes on…finding a balance, finding a schedule, making sure you don’t procrastinate on things…” Being a student-athlete forced Benham to become more…
