Trinity announced this year's Hall of Fame class, and among the recipients is former baseball and football standout Bo Edwards '00, '01, who owns five school baseball records to this day.   It's a shame that dad Bob, aka historymajor who was a constant presence on these boards, isn't still with us to beam during his induction later this year.   RIP, historymajor.

Here is Bob's voice, just after the TD, saying "No way! No way!" in the PAWS production of the Miracle in Mississippi.

RIP Bob!  You had a great family.

Ralph, I originally thought it was Bob (sounds like him) but according to the official TU hagiography ;) of the event it was Shawn Thompson.  But Bob was there, was one of those responsible for getting the video to ESPN, and the rest is history.

Thanks! Yes it sounded just like him.

The season is still months away, but today's announcement of yet another school leaving the Capital Athletic Conference (leaving only three members in 2021) makes me even more proud of the job the SCAC office did pulling this league out of the funeral pyres after the now-SAA schools split the conference nearly a decade ago.   Take a bow, Commissioner Dwayne Hanberry (who I believe had been offered the same position with the SAA but made the tough choice to remain with what was then a five-member conference).

Absolutely!

In my wildest dreams, if Commissioner Hanberry could have convinced two more schools (Schreiner?, Centenary?, Colorado College?, even U Dallas?) to resume football, then I would have let a football-playing Concordia Texas move to the SCAC so we could have 2 Pool A conferences in Texas.  (Of course, I would have wanted a 10-year agreement that the ASC and SCAC have a rotating schedule of 2 mandatory inter-conference games each year, for scheduling purposes.)

Some SCAC teams off to a great start:

Trinity ran their record to 7-0 with a sweep of Endicott, co-favorite in the Commonwealth Coast Conference preseason poll (who were playing their first games of the season).   So far the line on Trinity is good starting pitching but relief pitching has been giving up some runs late.

Centenary has been putting runs on the board in batches, batting .315 and averaging over 8 runs per game in their 7-1 start. 

Dallas, too, is off to a fast 7-1 start, batting .320 and and averaging over 8 1/2 runs per game.

All teams in the SCAC are at .500 or above, a combined 26 games over .500

Trinity is going to on-line instruction on March 23 and all athletic programs will terminate for the semester on that date.

A couple of players from Richmond (D1, Atlantic 10 conference) have announced they are transferring to Trinity:  IF Brian Schaub and LHP Garrett Aylor.   Aylor, who announced his transfer in May, is a Austin Westlake product; Schaub, who announced last week, is from La Salle College High in Hatfield, PA.  The two were roommates at Richmond and both have three years remaining eligibility.

If you look at his roster last year he did the same thing.   Not typical SCAC behavior to be sure.

Yeah, definately not typical SCAC. However there are not a lot of dropdowns there. Most of the schools (excluding the CC'S) are D3 and NAIA. I did see one dropdown at least from Texas Southern, however I did not check out all the schools.
