Irreplaceable

There are a couple of goings-on in the general mid major world that, really, have no impact on the CAA. But they are interesting stories, nonetheless:

The Mid-Continent Conference is changing its name to The Summit League.

I don’t know about you, but that name immediately conjures thoughts of an Independent baseball league. (“Now batting….Darryl…Strawberry…”) Or a confederation of superheroes.

Either way, this appears to be an homage to the Law of Unintended Consequences. The conference’s beacon, Valparaiso, is bolting. I’m guessing they wanted a new image. They will get it.

But that made me think…what if Papa Tom and the Folks over at the Colonial offices decided to change the name of our league? What would be its name?

I’ll ponder it, but I’m guessing Connecticut Assasin’s Association is out.

Here’s the other interesting item…

I’m a big fan of the team’s pxp man standing by the head coach, as well as standing up for what he believes is unfair in this world. But the banquet is supposed to be about the players. I’m also just not sure about a basketball announcer attempting to sing.

Beyonce.

Does this entire scenario play out the same way in the Big 10?
