Iím hearing some very influential people connected with JCU are unhappy with how 20 year head baseball coach Marc Thibeault was fired recently. If what Iíve been hearing turns out to be true the incident will reflect bad on such a great school.

I have no idea what happened with Thibeault but I can't think that starting off 6-0 in the OAC and not even making the OAC tournament (4 teams) helped his cause.  I'm guessing the continued success at BW doesn't help either as they won the OAC regular season, made the NCAA tourney again and made it the regional finals.

From I heard it had nothing to do with record, but more to do with over reaction by AD that pissed off one of the biggest donors for JCU.

And in another non-football related note, Mount Union has changed its long-standing affiliation from UMC to SJW.

SJW❓ Huh? Help me here. (See signature below)
in the article they mentioned The Wesleyan philosophy along with Methodist, That's all I know.

They have dropped their affiliation with the United Methodist Church after all these years because of the churches stance on gay/lesbian exclusions in the church. They do not want to limit their inclusion of all students in the family. They have even agreed to fully support any student that has received money from the church that would go away because of this change in philosophy.

I knew the UMC. But what's the SJW?  ???

This change isn't surprising,  but still strikes me as quite sad.  MUC hasn't been a religious school for decades, but it still pains me to see the foundations of our culture erode.  Even if it's simply symbolic as in this instance as the soul of MUC died years ago.  RIP.
I find easily offended people rather offensive!

Not to get too political but I think this move is incredibly consistent with the foundations of Mount Unionís culture. Inclusivity and equality was the major ideal for the school from literally day 1:

Mount Union was founded in 1846 by Orville Nelson Hartshorn as "a place where men and women could be educated with equal opportunity, science would parallel the humanities, and there would be no distinction due to race, color, or sex."

Hartshorn was a pretty progressive guy for his time, seems consistent with what heíd have wanted.

So is the bottom half of the OAC following suit by starting a petition yet?

 ;)  ;D

I bet no one here has any sympathy for the MIAC. Crazy.

Men of Mount... Since you are the football powerhouse, and we are the overall sports powerhouse (you said as much last week ;) ), I say we put outside our differences and form an alliance against the impending cellar-dweller meeting (which will sure to be organized by BW)

The advantage of having a smaller conference is that I'm pretty sure only 3 no votes would probably torpedo any MIAC-like attempt. (Not that i think that would ever happen, as OAC teams aren't as big of losers as some of the MIAC crew), but Mount and John Carroll would certainly vote no, and I'd even imagine ONU, BW, Berg, and Marietta would vote against it. It helps I suppose that Mount doesn't beat people 90-0

Now-Asst-AD Snell would most certainly chair that committee gleefully.  Heís probably already trying to convince Tri-C to start a football team to replace you guys in the Cuyahoga Cup.

On the surface this season was on par with many from Thibeaultís long tenure.  I didnít know if the new AD wasnít pleased with the status quo.  If thatís not the case then itís crap IMO.  Thibeault is a Streak lifer.  The dude played there and never left.  JCU baseball is all he knows.  I respect anyone who cares that much about their school.

The body count would to be too numerous to count against the bottom feeders. Could we see a Cumberland vs Ga Tech-esque score? Who knows.
