Calvin's schedule is posted, if that hasn't made it to the board yet.

https://calvinknights.com/sports/mbkb/2020-21/schedule

It currently lists Augustana twice on Friday Nov 20 and Sat 21, but I'm guessing one of those is Illinois Wesleyan which would complete the four-year cycle.

Non-conference slate is Illinois Tech, UW-Stout, Augustana, (Illinois Wesleyan), Anderson, Wheaton, Wooster Tournament (x2), Cornerstone, Aquinas, and THE Grace Christian University.

What???  Can't see my 2nd favorite team at Eckerd College down the street from me again.????.. it was fun last year...

Todd Creal on Facebook...

The last couple weeks have been difficult to say the least. The announced closing of MacMurray College hit me hard and the range of emotions from sadness to anger have been a roller coaster. I have been searching for the next step for me and for my family. I am very happy to announce that I have been offered and accepted the Associate Head Menís Basketball Coaching position at Westminster College in Fulton, MO. I am grateful for the opportunity to work for Head Coach Matt Mitchell, a coach that I have the utmost respect for. Matt really helped me get the job at MacMurray College 13 years ago. I will also be the Sports Information Director there. Happy to be around great people. Happy to be at a great place. Happy and proud to be a Blue Jay!

Very nice to hear.

hopefan...."what's Facebook?"

No no no...Iím good on Facebook.. itís the tweetiní stuff that I canít figure out...

Sorry, hopefan...just now seeing the part above about the big announcement.  Didn't mean to steal your thunder.

Thanks TQ.. I assumed you had missed my build-up post, which had pushed off the current page of posts... and I would never condemn someone who is such a major part of D3hoops.com....
Todd Creal and I have been close for a number of years... had some great SLIAC Basketball conversation... he confided to me a little over a week ago that this was in the works, and it's hard for me to express how happy I was for him.... it puts him in a great position to succeed into Matt Mitchell's Head Coaching job when Coach Mitch moves up, or off, the coaching ladder... in the mean time, a super coaching duo... I've immediately referred to them as fire and ice... the firey Associate Head Coach Creal, the cool and calculated Head Coach Matt Mitchell.  Indeed this was great news in the SLIAC in very tough times.

I figured you knew about the other schools; I mention that for anyone else who may be reading.

I guess we get to wait around for the extremely good news coming tomorrow.

I have some extremely good news regarding the SLIAC, but have had to keep it 100% confidential... until Monday afternoon....look for a post then...

In the mean time, a Happy Easter to all...STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY.....

Thanks Wuuuu   +1.   It caught my interest because a young lady from the old home town of Eureka Mo had posted how excited she was about being accepted in Libertyís R.N. degree program and I had sent her a quick note of congrats....

Colleges and universities are going to do everything they can to avoid having students do a gap-semester or gap-year in 2020-2021.  This could become a big issue if the Department of Education decides to extend loan deferrals.

But colleges and universities are also not going to risk looking like Fallwell Junior and Liberty University.

I am not sure how many institutions will be able to field teams without on-campus housing, for example, and I cannot imagine opening the dorms a semester prior to opening up the classrooms.

WUPIFFFF... I fall far short of your knowledge regarding Colleges and Universities...I was curious about your reference to Fallwell Junior and Liberty University... can you explain?

Yep, Pat took care of a SLIAC poster who wrote some very unpleasant things...  it was a very good and justifiable decision...

I was hoping we'd get a lot of memories of humorous writers or writings from the past here... unfortunately not yet.... another hopefan idea down the drain  ::) ::) ::)

  The following is a quote from Ryan Scott, D3hoops.com writer, over in the CCIW room today, 3/27/20

"D3 athletic depts don't rely on NCAA money like the big boys,  although closing campuses early is sure to create budget pressure of its own."

It plays to my "in the back of my head" concern.... how will the low enrollment SLIAC schools survive this pandemic... probably half or more of our schools were already in very bad financial shape, can they recover from this situation....

very scary
