YIKES!!  I seem to have killed CCIW Chat - six days and nothing but crickets. :(

2015-2016 CCIW All-Sports Trophy:

MEN:
  1. Augie    62
  2. Carthage 60
  3. NCC     57.5
  4. Wheaton 55
  5. IWU      45
  6. Elmhurst 39
  7. Millikin   23
  8. NPU     20.5

WOMEN:
  1. IWU     67.5
  2. Wheaton 57
  3. Carthage 54.5
  4. NCC      52
  5. Augie    45.5
  6. Millikin   25
  7. Elmhurst 23.5
  8. NPU      20

COMBINED:
  1. Carthage  114.5
  2. IWU          112.5
  3. Wheaton   112
  4. NCC          109.5
  5. Augie        107.5
  6. Elmhurst    62.5
  7. Millikin        48
  8. NPU            40.5

Interesting how tight the top five were in the overall athletic department totals, then a drastic drop.

My methodology was what I believe is pretty standard in these sorts of rankings: in sports with all eight schools, 1st place got 8, second 7, etc.  In sports with fewer than all schools, first got the number of participating schools.  In sports with affiliate members, they were simply ignored with the points allocated as though only the full CCIW member schools participated.  Tied positions received the average of the tied places (e.g., Wheaton and IWU tied for first in women's basketball, so each got 7.5 points).

There were a lot of fines handed out but, luckily, no suspensions.
Is the AFL run by Stanley Blackburn & Wally Carbo? ;)

There was a fight last night between Hawthorn and North Melbourne where a little football broke out. The highlights are below. If nothing else, forward to the 7:33 mark to watch an end-to-end play that's as smooth as any you will see.

I can't believe no one here is talking about Brexit!
I heard UST is going to Brexit the MIAC and seek refuge in the UMAC  :o

U$T ... always looking for the edge.

Well if anything, across all athletics, I think UST is the major force keeping the MIAC relevant.

Pro ball / Re: MLB Topics

Another oddity in Detroit today - the Tigers won in the bottom of the tenth on a wild pitch by the Seattle pitcher!  I'm not sure how rare that is, but a fan friend and I couldn't recall the last time the Tigers were ever involved in a 'walk off' wild pitch.

Reliever Kyle Ryan, recently recalled from Toledo, went from probable goat to hero - his throwing error on an attempted pick-off in the top of the tenth sent the runner all the way to third with no outs, but he emerged unscathed when the runner was thrown out at the plate and instead got the win.

I've gotta feel sorry for Seattle, who now have FOUR starting pitchers on the DL - their scheduled starter today (already a fill in for an injured pitcher) did not even get to the first pitch, suffering elbow pain during warm-up.  Kudos to their bullpen who pitched the entire game and got them to extra innings.

I don't feel sorry for the Pilots...errr...Mariners.  Go Angels!   ;D

I've got nothing against the Angels, but that's harsh!  Geez, FOUR starters out, including King Felix. :(  But if someone doesn't slow down Texas soon, you're ALL history anyway.
