Well PH see what happens when Whittier puts a whole game together...Hitting, pitching and defense.  Whittier 9 CLU 5

This is a big thing for the Poets...they aren't mailing it in for the season. They've made a choice to compete...that makes me a Proud Poet Poppa!  (Isn't alliteration fun?)
I see that according to BW's report on the baseball board, Lake Bachar pitched 6 innings, striking out 10 and walking 2, giving up 6 hits and one earned run in earning a victory against Elmhurst this past week. Bachar is UW-W's kicker and is playing college baseball for the first time this spring.

Just finished re-watching one of my favorite movies: Cat Ballou.  Lee Marvin (deservedly) won best supporting actor, and (deservedly) said a horse somewhere in Nevada should share the Oscar.

What I don't like about the NESCAC schedules is that the home football games are often played at the same time as the home soccer games....

I've read a lot about NESCAC football games interfering with soccer games.  So I just randomly picked a top NESCAC soccer school that I know (Amherst) to see how this really plays out. 

Here's what I found from the 2014 season:

Amherst soccer played 21 games
3 of Amherst's home soccer games were on the same day as a home Amherst football game
None of these football games were scheduled at the same starting time as the soccer games
There was at least an hour-and-an-half to two-hour offset in starting time for those three "overlapping" games

With only three home soccer games potentially impacted by football and with the offset times, I can't imagine that 3 semi-conflicting football games are having much of an impact on a 21 game soccer season

Worst example to pick, as Amherst even plays night football games on their new field.  The point was brought up not to demonstrate how simultaneous football and soccer scheduling impacts a particular team's home soccer attendance.  It is a league wide practice for the traveling NESCAC college to bring all of their fall teams to the hosting college.  So there will be 4 simultaneous or nearly simultaneous athletic contests taking place at any given NESCAC school on a fall weekend.  It detracts from men's soccer attendance in general.

How about Puget Sound today? Walk off inside-the-park, two-run home run to win game one against Whitman. They follow it up with an extra inning, walk off solo bomb in the second game. Clutch.

Whitworth all of a sudden the front runner... They still have Willamette and Linfield on the schedule, but they look pretty solid.

Tomorrow is a big day, as is every day going forward.
