Sometimes, You Just Have to Say…

Format note: the “find a song title or artist that relates to the content” manner of titling the blog posts is being retired today. I know you’re saddened by this. I’m not. The titles usually ended up being something I had just listened to or was listening to at the moment. Not as creative or kitchy as I set out. So we’re moving forward to the new means of personalizing this thing, with the debut of:

What’s on my iPod Right Now: In the Morning, by Big Head Todd and the Monsters.

Last year note to consider: More than 42,000 fans attended the CAA tournament last season, a record for the conference. The semifinals and the championship were both sellouts. Before you bring up “I saw empty seats!” I want you to name me one sporting event that is sold out that doesn’t include corporate foof no-shows.

Exactly. The tournament continues to grow, which is what is important and notable in the big picture. It was William Wallace who said it best: “”You’re so concerned with squabbling for the scraps from Longshanks’ table that you’ve missed your God-given right to something better.”

The league is growing.

And that brings us to the next year’s note to consider: CAA teams welcome back 67% of their starters from last season. And this doesn’t include the injured TJ Carter, or high impact transfers like Abdullah Jalloh at JMU or Josh Thornton at Towson.
