North Region football / Re: North Coast Athletic Conference
« on: October 03, 2014, 09:41:17 pm »
Talking about fifth years. When my son was looking at schools, all the scholarships were 4 years. A fifth year was full frieght. At OWU, I believe many fifth years, in football, are getting a teaching certificate, fall semester. I have no idea if this is at full tuition or not. Does anybody know if this is the case at the other schools?
If so this is a real advantage for athletes playing fall sports. I am not sure many baseball players could pay full tuition for a fith year of baseball at one of these private LAC's. If an athlete in a spring sport is hurt, they are pretty much relegated to 3 years of competition.

How is everyones fall going. Looks like OWU's pitching will be deeper this year. Hard to know about the offense.

From what I understand the SCAC will be playing with the low seam ball for 2014, and I believe it is a conference decision.  I also believe the playoff ball, sanctioned by the NCAA, will be using the low seam ball, but I am not 100% sure on this.  More to follow.
Low seam or flat seam?

Since the NCAA does not suplly the regular season balls,I know that the decision during the regular season is by conference.  Each conference has their own contract with manufactor.  Are the contracts year to year, or are tgey multi-year. If they are multi-year and the SCAC's is up I may understand why they would go ahead with the low seam. But otherwise I do not understand why they would jump ahead of even D1. D1 is not scheduled to use the flat seam until 2015.
In the regionals, does the NCAA supply the balls or is that part of being a host?

OWU over Kenyon, 35-25.
OWU defense worries me. They are giving too much up to thse teams. They are definately not the pass happybteam of lastvyear. I think Watt is doing a good job of tailoring his O to his athlete's.

I was at the first intrasquad yesterday. Son did not pitch, but I did not expect him to. It was nice to see some pitchers comming back from injury. I also was very pleased with yhe freshman pitching. One lefty from Ca. Looked very good. We had another lefty from closer to by, that did very well.
It was good to see the parents from last year, and meet some new people. The scrimmage was run well and we got to see quite a few of the new guys.

These are considered exhibitions, if I remember correctly.

This raises the question: why can't baseball play a split schedule the way tennis does?

Rather than try to play games in the north in February and early March, September and October would provide better weather.  Keep the number of games and number of weeks of play and practice the same, but have some of those weeks and games in the fall as well as the spring.

Right now CWRU tennis plays in September and then from March thru May.
I believe the B1G has suggested this at the D1 level. I am not sure how I feel about it. The fall is about learning your team, and seeing what the new guys can do. Also the Freshman are working on to adjusting to college, not traveling and trying to compete. I know the football players and other fall sports do it.  Your team in the spring might not be the same team you had in the fall. At some of the schools you lose some players to academics after the fall semester.
Would this happen nationally or by conference decision. I am not sure the schools in the south and west would be interested. Would the schools from the cold climates be at a disadvantage, playing only 15 - 20 games in the spring, before starting regionals? You would also lose some of the dual sports athletes.  A player could no longer play football and Baseball.
I don't necessarily disagree with you ADL, there would just be a lot to work out.

ADL70 brought this subject up on the NCAC board. I thought I would post it here to see others thoughts.
