The Carolina Panthers were overwhelmed by the Denver Broncos during the Super Bowl 50 game, the ending score being 24-10. And while this super bowl was supposedly Peyton Manning’s last game of his career, the biggest topic of discussion seemed to be focused on Panther’s quarterback, Cam Newton.
To start things off, Football is known to be a popular American sport, As Nina Burleigh states in her essay “Would Football without Concussions Still Be Football?” That “Professional football is currently the most popular spectator sport in the United States” (610). Burleigh also mentioned “Currently the super bowl is the most watched sporting event in the United States, and it is also seen by millions of people around the world” (610). This goes to show you that Men, kids and even women enjoy watching the game whether its attending a little league football game every Saturday, A high school game every Friday or watching the NFL every Sunday on ESPN. “Such is the glory and delirium of American football – invigorating autumn air, the crack of a beer at the tailgate, the snuggling team logo sweat shirts” (Burleigh 611). Burleigh describes a day of feeling relaxed in which almost every American can enjoy while watching or attending a

The NFL was founded on September 17, 1920 and was known as the American Professional Football Association (APFA). It was renamed in 1922 as the National Football League or NFL. In 1920 there were eleven football franchises to form the first professional football league compared to the 32 teams that form the league now. The original teams are: Canton Bulldogs, Cleveland Tigers, Dayton Triangles, Akron Professionals, Rochester (N.Y.) Jeffersons, Rock Island Independents, Muncie Flyers, Decatur Staleys, Chicago Cardinals, and Hammond Pros. Jim Thorpe was elected as the league's first president. In 1970 NFL's rival league AFL merged their schedules and formed two conferences in which the AFL became AFC and NFL became NFC.
The Carolina Panthers had to come out of the locker room after the first half needing to get something going if they were going to come back and beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. The first half was dominated by the defense. Whose defense would be able to hold out for the rest of the game would determine who would win the Super Bowl.
The Green Bay Packers have always had in interesting dynamic with its local city and Brown County, which is the county the franchise resides in. According to the 2010 census, Brown County had a population of 248,007 people, and the City of Green Bay had 104,057 people, which makes it the 139th largest city in the United States (Census). The next smallest city with a professional football team is New Orleans, which is the 51st largest city in the country (Census). The reason the Green Bay Packers are so interesting is because they reside in such a small city, that their influence on Brown County’s economy must be large in comparison. Another reason why I wanted to look at the Packers is because they are the only NFL team that
The Carolina Panthers found themselves a star in Kelvin Benjamin drafting him 28th overall in 2014 draft. We took him 28th overall I think he has already become a steal for the Panthers and Dave Gettleman who is a great evaluator of talent. He took the NFL by storm becoming quarterback Cam Newton's favorite target right away and for good reason; setting Panther rookie records for receptions receiving yards and touchdowns with 79 catches 1008 yards and nine touchdowns.
A united university through sports is often a rarity. College football can be one of the most intense experience in college sports.

Many American’s truly look forward to the weekends. And why wouldn’t you? You get to be with your family and friends with time off work. But from September until February, there is a certain day that many America’s take such joy in participating in. And I’ll give you a hint: it is not going to church. When football season comes to the United States, many people become more social, often inviting friends and family to enjoy this weekly celebration. But football to many people is more than just a game. It is a social interaction that we as a community take part in. We pay quite a bit of money to attend their games. We watch never-ending commercials to see it at home…and for what?
A Panther defensive lineman should have ambition. You must fight to win every play. Failure is not an option! YOU are responsible for putting doubt in the minds of our opponents!
Nine days till Christmas break. Just nine long and exhausting days separating us from sweet, freedom and our own lovely beds! Have you ever thought about how crazy it is for us to be so desperate and excited for a break? We just had one! Thanksgiving was a quick tease for our soon long month of, lets be real, sleeping and Netflix. Thanksgiving was full of food, shopping, sleep, and football. Even if you’re not a huge football fan your Thanksgiving was in some way affected by America’s favorite sport. Whether it was watching your team play, or watching some family member going crazy at the TV, my dad…. Football is a traditional part of our day of thanks. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be playing in one of those games on
When I watch the iconic Clemson "Moments" video, chills rush through my body and goosebumps rise. That could be me next year; experiencing those moments. Touring the campus in February, I got that moment. It is the one that every high school senior has no words to describe when they have the realization they have found their new home for the next chapter of their lives. I am by no means a crier, but I teared up on my Clemson tour thinking I have found the place that is the fit for me. I can fit in here I thought to myself. No more little Winchester, this is exactly where I want to be and exactly where I belong. It is one of weirdest, yet most exciting feelings that I could be a Clemson Tiger; spending four years through rigorous work and research
Anatole France said in a newspaper article, “ You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by run, by running, to work by work by working; In just the same way you learn to love by loving.” As Anatole France said,” people learn to do things by doing them. Students need Panther Time to learn to study so that they can learn.” This is why Panther Time needs to continue because it can benefit lots of students by improving grades and many more reasons.
