  • BREAKING: Chicago State has cut its baseball program, the athletic director just announced during a call with Board of Trustees. Tough day for @CSUBaseball. Vote has been officially approved to cut baseball after Mr. Charles presentation. In its place, men’s soccer will be added as a reported competitive and cost savings measure eff 20-21 year.

    It makes no sense to me to drop baseball and add soccer because they didn't say what the savings would be. CSU is a messed up place.

            Messed up is putting it nicely. Chicago State is an embarrassment to the city of Chicago, the state of Illinois, the Western Athletic Conference and the NCAA.

            • On a much needed positive note, here's some big rugby hits from over the weekend in Australia to cheer up those of us who are craving live contact sports.

                Probably going to use the money to upgrade the football program.

                        And now the Covid-19 pandemic is on the rise again in those states where many people ignored the CDC warnings and tried to rush back to life as usual. Impatient, selfish, idiots are screwing things up for everyone.

                          Seems pretty late to be cutting sports for the players to find a new home. Kind of like what they did to the Chicago State baseball team.
