  1. Fencing. You get to wear a mask and if the other person gets too close you can stick them pretty good.
  2. The Supreme Court said Thursday that a large swath of eastern Oklahoma remains an American Indian reservation, a decision with potential implications for nearly 2 million residents and one of the most significant victories for tribal rights in years. The land at issue contains much of Tulsa, the state’s second-largest city. The question for the court was whether Congress officially eliminated the Muscogee (Creek) Nation reservation when Oklahoma became a state in 1907. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/supreme-court-says-much-of-eastern-oklahoma-remains-indian-land/2020/07/09/7bdc42d4-c1e2-11ea-9fdd-b7ac6b051dc8_story.html?fbclid=IwAR2EJM_hMv9SI7oWfQZzgashc4gQ60dcd5g4UkvON5y-RFOg6-RuJrsH2g8
  3. Congratulations to Javion, the team, and the coaches! I am so proud of everyone! (I'm wondering how extensively the local press has covered this?)
  4. I have actually been on the Bowdoin campus and attended a football game. If you are ever in the area, I recommend taking a look. It is a beautiful place.
  5. Always, always be aware of the Cheshire Grin, especially if accompanied by the flared nostrils.
  6. Mason's positive attitude is a wonderful thing. I am so proud of him.
  7. Common sense is the predisposed notion that others share your opinion.
  8. The NCAA’s decision to cancel March Madness means that at the end of the 2019-20 school year, Division I schools will divvy up $225 million, which is just 37.5 percent of the anticipated $600 million in revenue the group planned to pass on to its member institutions. Of that, $50 million will come from its reserves, and the rest from a line of credit that the NCAA will pay off by next June, which is when it will get the anticipated $270 million event cancellation insurance payout. This will have a massive impact on lots of college athletics programs, many of which will have to contend with no longer being the most important part of their schools’ revenue engine. Typically, about 80 percent of NCAA revenue is derived from March Madness. Most depressing of all, the share of those revenues that go to the very athletes whose labor makes the NCAA watchable is 0 percent. It was also 0 percent before they cancelled March Madness, but that still sucks, and we should probably talk about it more. Laine Higgins, The Wall Street Journal
  9. I am not a fan of this Bonus Game system because to me it is more about leveling the field than it is bolstering the possibility of getting more than one team in the NCAA tournament. In the very best of circumstances, the chance of C-USA getting more than one team in that tournament are slim to none. It may, in fact even be detrimental to getting a team in the NIT. Our scheduled first game is with a very solid team, third place LT, and our second game is at FIU that has lost one game at home! Then we get a very good second place WKU before playing the fourth game at another one-loss-at home, Charlotte! So, we get to roll into the C-USA tournament after an 11 day hard run and possible bullet ridden record. How does that make for higher quality basketball...for us or any of our conference mates?
