Happy Colonels

I will take a break from the broad brush of the Happy Society to note a specific happy thing in our little world:  the Centre College football team has been invited to play in the NCAA playoffs in Division III (the most sensible division, I think).  This is the first time the team has ever been in the NCAA playoffs, since the last time we were invited to post-season play - the 1955 Tangerine Bowl - came before the NCAA division system was in place.

Kickoff is at noon in our own stadium against Hampden-Sydney.  I will give an update after the game.

Go Colonels!  Play with dignity!

Just out of curiosity, but what makes Division III most reasonable. I don't disagree, I just don't know what each division means or stands for.

No athletic scholarships in Division III - real scholar/athletes.

By the way, Centre won, 51 - 41.

I don't even like sports, but that makes me really happy and proud.
