Hayes Rule


Amanda Thompson is Living on a Prayer

Some athletes find motivation from popular quotes. Some find it from coaches or peers. Others find it from within themselves. Amanda Thompson finds it in the Bible verse, Colossians 3:23: ““Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” The ...


The Ruling: Win and you're in

The formula is pretty simple now for the Bears: Win, and you get to keep playing. The regular season doesn’t mean anything now. Mercer’s 18-13 record. The trials and tribulations. The ups. The downs. The injuries. The game winners. None of it matters. Win, and you’re in. The Bears will need ...


The Ruling: Cummings is stealing the show

I remember getting off the telephone thinking, “Ouch.” I had just spoken with head coach Bob Hoffman and sources inside the program who relayed the news that leading-scorer Ria’n Holland’s x-rays didn’t look good. Holland would ultimately be ruled out for 2-3 weeks with a right wrist injury ...


Ria'n Holland out at least 2-3 weeks with right wrist injury

Mercer leading scorer Ria’n Holland will miss at least 2-3 weeks with a right wrist injury, according to the program. He will then be evaluated once again after that timespan. Holland suffered the injury Jan. 18 in the second half of a 62-56 win over Virginia Military Institute. Holland, a member ...


The Ruling: Bears behind the eight ball in conference play

Sickness and the winter break got the best of me, but The Ruling is back in session as Mercer basketball ramps up Southern Conference play -- the most vital portion of the season. It hasn’t exactly gone as planned so far. After a 7-6 non-conference season, Mercer lost its first three conference games ...


The Ruling: You're the only ten I see

Mercer football has been the team receiving recognition for playing high-level opponents recently, but now it’s men’s basketball’s turn to jump into the action. The Bears (5-2, 0-0) will continue non-conference play this week as they swing into Tennessee to face the Tennessee Volunteers and Memphis ...


Pitching leads the way in softball's undefeated fall season

During its seven-game undefeated fall season, Mercer softball allowed only two runs per game. The success on the mound is simply a continuation of the strength the pitching staff displayed last season. The Bears played over the span of three weeks, beating Georgia Highlands 9-0, Wallace 12-4, East ...


The Ruling: #WeWantBama

Alabama is about to be the sweet home of the Mercer Bears. Picture this: Mercer trails No. 1 Alabama 27-24 with six seconds remaining. The Bears have the ball on Alabama’s 42 yard line. Mercer has one shot. One opportunity. To seize everything they ever wanted. Will they capture it, or will they ...


The Ruling: Basketball is back!

IT’S BASKETBALL SZN! I’m going to continue writing my column on a weekly basis during basketball season — that means my columns will cover several games instead of just one like I have been doing with football. But the format will still be the same. You’ll still see terrible, punny headlines. ...
