A Chetek WI. boy was killed a couple months ago in a plane crash. He wore 56 and played middle linebacker on the football team. Here's what happened when the team played their first game Friday night.

Cool article about the 1993 Mount Union National championship team: http://www.cantonrep.com/sports/20170820/mount-unions-1993-football-team-starts-dynamic-dynasty?platform=hootsuite

My favorite little nugget there was the team flew home after the game and went out in alliance to celebrate. I find it a miracle Brenda's, The Hood, etc survived that night. What a party it must have been.

Wash-U will be a Pool B, since it will be an independent this season before moving to the CCIW as an affiliate member in 2018.

UC Santa Cruz's student body approves a significant increase to keep athletics part of their college campus experience: http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/sports/20170531/uc-santa-cruz-athletics-saved-by-measure-68-passage

This is an oversell. 60% of the student body didn't vote, which I guess can be taken as a tacit form of approval for the fee increase, but probably speaks to an indifferent at best stance on "keeping athletics part of their campus experience"—especially considering that not voting could defeat the measure.

Only 28% of the student body actually voted yes on this, and I would guess the yes rate among student-athletes was probably 100%, or something very close too it, so your non-athlete level of support was even lower (I don't know how many SAs they have on campus.) That seems like it could still present problems down the road in terms of support.

I'm not sure how it is everywhere, but when I was in school a 10% turnout for any student vote was pretty darn impressive.  Most college kids just don't care.

So your student votes had 50 ballots cast?  ;D

You know, maybe 65 - sometimes student council elections might break triple digits.

Howdy from the "South" region of the boards! I'm a recently graduated player from the SAA and I've just moved to DC. I'm really interested in checking out the two teams in the city when the season gets going. Anyone here been to a game at Catholic that can speak to the atmosphere/experience?

    You might do better to ask this on the ODAC board, since that has been Catholic's football affiliation for the 15 years years prior to the switch.

Important to note that list that scottiedawg has kept is really a very incomplete list of each schools recruits...

Nice.  Thanks.  Can we ask a couple questions?

- Any details leap out at you from the mini progress report? 1. Pretty general points being made, no specific names  not even returning starters. Has Clarke switched to defense? 2. Nope, he ran all plays at WR & looked really good. Made some nice moves-catches in 7 on 7.  Who's catching the ball?3. Clark, Gillach, Harrington, Essler, Streit, Auger,Barber. Matt Miller is lost with ACL, tough break as the kid was shining last year stepping in for the injured Harrington.

- Were any transfers introduced or mentioned? Nope

- Good jokes?  Tough without Gagliardi to deliver them. AD & Hall of Fame Golf Coach Bob Alpers is pretty funny. Explained in six degrees of separation style how he was almost  the head football coach,going back to his impressive record as the prep school JV coach in the early 80'. Funny stuff
