Trinity Texas just announced on their twitter feed that the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference has approved an 8 game conference season in the Spring. Yes, I know, it hasnít happened yet and a lot can happen before then.  We can talk in May about whether this was a good or bad idea.

Shhhh, don't tell D-Mac who said conferences planning to play fall sports in the spring weren't "working in reality".

Come on now....please be fair and present a full picture.  He is still VERY confident that a Fall season will happen....in 2020.

Meanwhile, the NESCAC quietly has canceled all Winter competition.

Despite COVID, the PA state soccer finals are tonightóand the school district that includes the Messiah soccer field (the rest of campus across the Yellow Breeches Creek is in a different county and district), Northern York, is in the the final for the first time ever. They have several players with very impressive offensive numbers. Havenít heard whether any are planning to become Falcons. I can think of just two players from Northern who played at Messiah in the past, none too recently. Northern is the same HS where the great distance runner Marlie Starliper (some here will recognize that name) set the state XC course record and finished second last year in the national Foot Locker race. Sheís now at NC State. The last Northern team to win a title was, I think, the baseball team in 2011.

Excuse me what? You guys seem to once again not understand what I say when I say it.

For the record, I was in the hospital during this latest shot at me ... so just seeing it. Maybe I should have ignored it because ... it's pointless to repeat myself.
