    Best case scenario, they may even be able to have fans in stands in mid July here on our phase reversal plan. I think they'd just do a short season like if a strike or lockout had shortened season, but with talking multiple double headers I understand why also a DH in NL this year proposed. Less rest days for pitchers and keeping them from batting would help.

    I'm very glad they delayed the NHL team for Seattle from this fall to next fall with everything going on when they announced the team. No way they could be competitive year one like Vegas was.

    Lots of people have been keeping an eye on rugby in New Zealand before getting their hopes up about football starting this fall.

    Rugby is back. Yay! I love rugby...it's the Father of American football. With rugby returning I'm starting to think football just might be back in play this fall.

    Haha!

    Actually, I've seen a few videos of kids getting nailed in some pretty creative ways for cheating. Some of the profs are pretty sneaky :D

    At West Virginia University the AD and the head coaches of the football, men's & women's basketball and baseball programs agreed to take a 10% pay cut to help out the school. And all the other employees at WVU (who aren't making millions) agreed to take a 2.5% pay cut as well.

    GCU is interesting. They were a non-profit who sold to a for-profit, then re-gained non-profit status a couple years ago. I believe they are now a non-profit branch of a for-profit company. Confusing.

    80 games is cool. I don't really start following MLB until after the All Star Break anyway. IMHO, the MLB is tooooooooooooo long.

    I'm still bitter at them. They were going to be in the GNAC, until they weren't. Schedules were even made with GCU on the schedule for all GNAC teams, but then they bailed.
    D2 is not a good fit for most private universities. There are too many partial scholarships. Tuition is much higher at private schools than at their public counterparts. A 10% scholarship at GCU leaves student with a lot more debt than a 10% scholarship at CWU. This difference creates a big recruiting problem.

    I remember when they made the jump to D1. As it was in the middle of their for-profit years, there was a ton of controversy allowing them to join. A lot of people didn't like it. Money talks, though.

    And MLB draft only 5 rounds. I'm guessing due to no season to see possible breakout stars.
    MLB has been trying to reduce sub-MLB costs and this provides them an excuse.
