So I cut the cord a long time ago and haven't had a cable bill in years.  Instead of traditional cable I got a Roku and got Netflix/Hulu and stuff like that.  I happened to be looking to see what "channels" got added recently and much to my surprise but the PAC has a channel and I got it.  I am not much of a basketball fan so I didn't watch anything on, but I did check things out.  It appears instead of going to the college website to watch a game being live streamed, all the schools funnel that content to this app so it is all in one place.  Just thought that is neat and felt I would share it with all (the few) of you on this board.

CWRU has posted a Spring Roster.  Since Cameron Brown didn't participate in Senior Day back in November I thought there was a chance that he was coming back since he had another year of eligibility, but apparently not. [Edit]  he wasn't on there yesterday, but today he is!

https://athletics.case.edu/sports/fball/2019-20/roster

Based on this roster, the Spartans expect to return 8 players on each side of the ball and a placekicker who earned post-season honors. Okay 7 were UAA HM, but it's still recognition.

Certainly estastic to have a top top NCAA DIII pass rusher returning.

At this point, Im guessing his goal for the regular season is to lead the nation in sacks.

CWRU football twitter taking an interesting approach by highlighting former players' career successes and medical school enrollment.

Wait, is this on Roku?

I have a Roku TV.  If PAC has a "channel" on Roku I will definitely want to add that, would love to be able to stream CMU games on my real TV instead of phone/laptop screen.

Yes it is on Roku and apparently Apple TV.  Here is the link from the PAC website.

Congrats to Jason Rosenbury, CWRU RB from 2000s, being named head coach at Kenyon:

Rosenbury appreciates the unique atmosphere of Kenyon and jumped at the opportunity to coach at the small liberal arts school. I really enjoy working at high-academic schools, specifically Division-III schools, Rosenbury said. I graduated from Case Western Reserve University, just up the road from Kenyon, and I had an amazing football experience and an amazing Division-III experience, and I think that really inspired me to continue to work with student athletes who are obviously very good athletes on the field but, more importantly, are great students.

While it does not impact FOOTBALL at all, the PAC today added Franciscan University as a full conference member.

Several sports will start conference play next year, all others will join for the 2020-2021 season.

Bob, thanks for the update.

May I ask you to share some of the reasons that Franciscan would move to the Pres AC? (What were the conversations that you could speculate would happen in the hallowed halls in Steubenville about the advantages to moving to the Pres AC?)

What is in it for the Presidents AC?  Which sports strengthen? Geography? Travel partner balance?

Who in the Pres AC would want them?

I am just trying to get my mind around the mission/vision issues in that part of the country.

Thanks

It is definitely less travel for Franciscan, which won't have to go to Buffalo for conference games. Seems like there has been an undercurrent about the AMCC's split between private and state schools, like there was in the CAC and has often been the case in conferences with a mix of the two.

Franciscan won't be any more competitive in the PAC -- it should be a wash competitively.
