The Athletic gives you a 90-day grace period before you have to pay.  That may be enough time for a Wheaton guy to look up the multi-syllabic words and get through the article.

Plus the article talks a bit about what the program needed to do to win a national championship in football.  That's something I would think Wheaton might want to learn about.  :D

The problem is you have to enter your credit card info and they automatically bill you at the end of 90 days unless you go through a detailed and microscopic web of bureaucracy to find a phone number and eventually  wait on the phone for 30 minutes to speak to someone to proactively cancel it. That's a bad business model.
Come try my new restaurant called "Karma". There are no menus....you get what you deserve!

We know how to beat North Central, does the article tell your kicker how to make an extra point or your DB's not to fall down?

Nope, but if it did, that would just be one more reason why a Wheatie might want to read it.  ::)

Broc Rutter has signed with San Fran as a priority free agent.

A story of Washington University football back when they sort-of won the Missouri Valley Conference during the Spanish flu pandemic. It should be free of charge.

IWU's recruits...

https://www.pantagraph.com/sports/college/illinois-wesleyan/nchs-levi-smaling-central-catholics-jack-moews-among-53-football-recruits-for-illinois-wesleyan/article_a32b7a8c-4c00-5d15-8b10-a84ebda8bf19.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter_Pantagraph
One thing of note from this article - it seems clear Norm Eash doesn't know who his QB will be in 2020.  He mentions the top QB recruits, and that there will be competition between returning QBs and newcomers.

-----
IWU's biggest question mark coming into the fall will be at quarterback. Brandon Bauer was a four-year starter and when he got hurt last season was replaced by another senior, Johnny DiCanio.The Titans added five quarterbacks to go with three still on the roster. The top freshmen prospects are Harry Abell of North Central (Ind.), Brody Ceh of Lincoln-Way West and Sage Shindler of Walter Payton Prep in Chicago.

"They're all different kinds of quarterbacks," said Eash. "Harry Abell is a bigger one (6-2, 215) and played at a bigger program in Indiana. Sage is the smaller of the three (5-10, 160),  but he's most like a Brandon Bauer as far as getting the ball out ... There's going to be some competition there (at quarterback) unless anything changes with a transfer over the summer."

Join the club!  I did note that in Normís words as well. NCC will probably see 8-10 QBís looking to walk into a pretty good situation for them!  You have last yearís backup to Broc Rutter, plus two others on the roster hopefully returning, two transfers and maybe 4-5 freshmen?   With most likely a pre season top 5 ranking, no spring, a short and/or limited preseason, somebody pretty tough mentally will have to come out of camp with that job.   NCC recruiting class is quite good.  There could be some kids come in and challenge for pt.  We will see!  Hope you and all of your families are safe and healthy during this time!

Congratulations to former NPU head coach Mike Conway, who as of June 1 will be the new athletic director at his alma mater, Olivet Nazarene. Mike spent last season as the DC for Taylor.
