Official word.....

Obviously very disappointing, but if there is a silver lining it is that North Central is likely to be defending NCAA D3 Football National Champions for the next sixteen months.   ;D ;D ;D

I think that I will sit back, light a big fat cigar and enjoy the thought of it.

Kovo - cigar smoke kills the airborne coronavirus.  Honest - I read it on the internet (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

And, we all know that if it gets onto the internet it's the Gospel truth. 😏
And, while relaxing in the recliner with that fat cigar, I sense enjoyment of said championship thoughts might even be enhanced by the addition of a refreshingly tasty brewski. 🍺  :P   ;D

Certainly going to miss fall afternoons at Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium cheering on the National Championship Cardinals 🏈 🏆.

With no D3/NCC football this fall, and an up in the air date with regard to when the 2020-2021 basketball season might be played, there very well might not be a whole lot to talk about for the foreseeable future 🤷🏻‍♂️.
Accordingly, Iím thinking that after 14 years and some 6,300 posts, the time might be right for this old poster to ride off into the sunset on the trail to the posterís retirement home. This site certainly doesnít need me or anyone else to thrive  :).
As a bonus, those righteous and all-knowing individuals who Iíve (so far) evidently pissed off 1,359 times will likely be smiling from ear-to-ear  ;D.

I would relish the challenge of calling a softball/football/women's soccer/men's soccer quadruple-header some Saturday next spring.

Is Calvinball a varsity sport or club sport at NPU?  ::)

Five bucks for you if you go over to the MIAA basketball board and ask that question but replace "NPU" with "Hope," kiko.

Thanks, but I prefer my car's windows remain unvandalized...

Also, if you prefer to sunshine this:  North Park University -- your 2020 CCIW football co-conference champions!   :)

Glass half empty:  North Park has not had a winning season on the gridiron since 1968.
Buttermaker:  "Tanner, do you want to quit?"
Tanner:  "Crud no, I wanna play ball."

Nope, not my style.

All I wanna do is call some ballgames.

Have to wonder about the affect of enrollment on these schools. Lots of athletes are going to D3 and CCIW schools to play sports, why bother with the cost if your season is suspended for a year?

Is the worth of the institution only the opportunity to play a sport?

for some students, yes. A not insignificant amount of them actually.

Not football news, but I will post this here given traffic levels are a wee bit higher:

Rutter released by the 49ers. Covid has limited rosters for camp and BC9 seems to be a casualty of that fact. Interesting tidbit about his signing bonus.

He still feels he has a great chance to come back to their Practice Squad.  Hoping he gets that opportunity.

USee,


I know Wheaton had a bunch of 5th year seniors returning.   I wonder how they stick it out another year to try to play in the Fall of '21.  Seems like a tall ask.  Thoughts?

Doubtful. Canít sit around for a year with 1 class left to graduate. Need to move on at some point. I suspect a couple will wait it out but most will get going with their lives. Too bad because Wheaton would have been loaded this fall with an early game against NCC and their inexperienced QB vs our Veteran.

Doubtful. Can’t sit around for a year with 1 class left to graduate. Need to move on at some point. I suspect a couple will wait it out but most will get going with their lives.

Oh there is no doubt I was dreading that first conference game with an inexperienced QB vs that Wheaton defense.  NCC didn't have many 5th year but it will be interesting to see how many seniors stick around for next Fall.  Lots of question marks but I will say this will give our next QB a chance to learn and get some experience hopefully this Fall and possibly next Spring.  It's all a guessing game at this point.   A couple of positive results come back within campuses or football teams and it's done.   MLB can't figure it out.  NHL and NBA seem to be having some success but that's by isolating the teams.  Not a viable option in the college world.  Really bummed this season didn't happen.  Not sure the CCIW has ever had two football teams ranked that high in the preseason.
