IIRC correctly, Siwash is a reference to Native Americans... but I don't think it's a specific tribe (though I could be wrong on that).  It was changed in about 93.

I did not notice this before, but thanks...

It makes sense that they would have moved away from the name.

gbpuckfan has it right in that Siwash is NOT reflective of any specific tribe. However, it IS specific to a region, that region being the northern Pacific Coast. Furthermore, the term Siwash is likely more historically descriptive of a Native Canadian, as opposed to Native American, tribe or tribes due to the fact that the early Siwash population(s) were domiciled chiefly along the Siwash Creek in British Columbia, and near Siwash Rock in what is now Vancouver, British Columbia.  8-)

North Central took both ends of today’s doubleheader in Naperville, besting the Redmen 5-4 in the opener, and 10-4 in the nightcap.

Perhaps the most exciting moment in the 2nd game came when the entire Carthage team suddenly vacated their dugout while, seconds later, the Naperville Fire Dept. roared into the parking lot directly behind the stadium. Initial speculation as to the cause of the disturbance centered on a laughable theory propagated by the NCC radio broadcasters suggesting the Carthage coach may have mishandled some type of incendiary device. However, further investigation subsequently seemed to reveal that a propane heater had malfunctioned. As the malfunctioning unit was quickly deemed not to present any further danger, the interruption was short lived, and game action resumed after only a short delay.

Hearing North Central has won a recruiting battle with St. Thomas and Loras for Brian Johnson, a 6-5 PF from Glenbrook North.

I can now confirm such is the case. Wanted to let Brian tweet the news before any formal announcement/confirmation.

The North Central Cardinals are delighted to welcome 6’5” Brian Johnson from Glenbrook North.
On the season Brian averaged 13.9 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 2.4 APG, and did so while playing all 5 positions on the court. He frequently brought the ball up for the Spartans, and is an accomplished ball handler and passer in addition to his shot making abilities. The Cardinals identified Brian as one of their most desired targets very early in the past season, and closely pursued him throughout. Brian is a student-athlete in the true sense. After practice he would go home, make sure to fully complete his homework, and then frequently return to the gym to further work on his game.
In addition to St. Thomas, Brian also visited Loras and St. Norbert, and was in contact with Lake Forest, Augustana, and North Park to varying degrees.
Another great get for the Cardinals.
Welcome Brian! 🏀

I think there will come a day when football is no longer recognized as an NCAA sport.

Are you talking solely D3 or the entire NCAA? And in what millennium?
With D1 stadiums filled with 80,000-100,000+ fans every Saturday in the fall, and the multi millions of dollars generated by those fans that fill the coffers of the various member schools, it seems doubtful said NCAA recognition will vanish anytime in the foreseeable future. Unfortunate as it may be, will not the current income stream to large member institutions, plus the opportunity for elite level players to parlay their talents into becoming future members of the top 1%, trump (sorry) the risk posed by possible brain injury despite it’s potentially catastrophic consequences as detailed by currently available research?

Someone mentioned this earlier, but another reason to jump to the NACC may be to get a stronger presence in the Milwaukee and Chicago area markets.

Also, did SNC ask to join the CCIW and got denied or did SNC decline an invitation?

There was no invitation offered by the CCIW. SNC was interested in CCIW membership, but I'm unsure if the school ever made a formal petition or merely sent out feelers to gauge the interest of the CCIW's various schools.

Let’s say SNC DID ask to join the CCIW. Does anyone know how many dissenting votes it would take
to bar membership? Just one? A majority? Another number?

Sam Stichnote may be the best high school 3-sport athlete coming out of Missouri this year.

Wow. Like the best athlete in the whole state of Missouri?  ???
And he plays 3 sports no less!
No wonder he’s going to Millikin!  :D
Those poor Mizzou Tigers never had a chance.  :o   ::)

My guess is that it's likely that we'll still have two sons playing for their fathers in this league next season. Connor Raridon comes back for a fifth year for North Central, and I suspect that Brady Rose of Illinois Wesleyan will be replaced in this category by Jacob Schauer, who is currently having a solid senior season at Wheaton North, playing for his dad two miles to the southeast in King Arena.

I can unequivocally  confirm such will be the case.

Yep, no mystery associated with this one. 🤗
During a pre-game chat on 2/9 Mike Schauer “confessed” to me that Jacob would be a member of next season’s Wheaton squad.

NCC RECRUIT

The North Central Cardinals are proud to have landed IBCA Class 4A Special Mention, All-State 6’1” PG Shea Cupples out of Normal West HS.
For the past season Shea averaged 16.6 PPG, 3.8 APG, 3.4 RPG, and 2.2 SPG. He also shot 87.7% from the line.
Normal West's all time 3 point shot leader, both for a single season and for a career, he hit 84 three pointers during the 2018-2019 season.
Cupples has been selected to participate in this summer’s IBCA All-Star game.
A significant get for the Cards.
Welcome Shea! 🏀

Portage(WI) 6’4” Wing, Eli Considine, has committed to Wheaton.  Can play above the rim and averaged 25 a game in a solid conference, granted he played on a bad team.  Good get for Wheaton, his final 2 includes UW-Stevens Point.

No doubt a tough decision between 2 schools whose social scenes so closely parallel each other.  ::)  ;)

Woopiffff.... showing my age, I remember Parsons well... seems to me it was a small college football factory

Parsons College, Iowa

"There was a turning point, however, in 1966 when Life magazine published an article criticizing the college and its president. Later that year the school lost its accreditation and Roberts was asked to resign as president. Enrollment quickly declined and the college floundered with $14 million in debt and closed under bankruptcy in 1973."

"Among Roberts's innovations at the college was the establishment of the trimester system which made year-round use of the facility and allowed students to reduce the time needed to obtain a degree. He lowered admission requirements and Parsons became known as a school that gave students a second chance. He increased the student-teacher ratio, streamlined the academic curriculum, and established recruiters around the country.[2] In 1961 the football team played Northeast Missouri State Teachers College in the Mineral Water Bowl, losing 22-8.[5]"

Millard Roberts, “The Wizard of Flunk Out U,” believed students should be given a second chance so he accepted students who had dropped out or flunked out of other colleges. It was also part of his plan to grow the school. He also raided other colleges from all over the country to obtain top faculty members, and paid them top dollar. At one time the Parsons faculty were the second highest paid teachers in the country—-only Harvard paid more.

Parsons naturally was a huge party school. There were lots of frats and sororities. A couple of the more notable were One Time Greeks (OTG) which was made up of guys who had been kicked out of other houses, and WTBA (Where The Boys Are) for guys with both a motorcycle and a sports car. Lots of rich kids at Parsons.
The high level of partying went on despite Parsons’ ban on alcohol on campus. Students would get together and rent off-campus party houses (hmmmmm). One of the most famous had a dance floor, full bar, and a (probable clothing optional) swimming pond. A popular band at various parties was ‘JC and the Penetrators.’ 😯

The Wheaton trainer, NCC trainer, and the physician that came down from the stands when Aiden was injured were amazing. It took me a while to realize it, but my medical background later told me that in addition to his physical injuries that evening, that trio may have also prevented Aiden from going into shock which would have presented a second level of trauma with even potentially worse consequences than his orthopedic misadventure. The collective prayers and well wishes of the crowd were also palpable. Aiden is still very thankful for all the support.

Any school besides IWU have any recruits?

Nope. Everyone is going green. 🤢
Next year, they are going with a radical new game plan. 🏀 😯
They are going to play 20 guys for 10 minutes a game! 🤫 😏
