Furman released their schedule. Nice to see they’ll be playing two Big Ten teams in 2017.
Providence & Sacred Heart also dropped their schedules yesterday. Providence is one team I think might be a sleeper in the Big East next season.
Shout out to Saskatoon Rush superfan, Grandma Rush.
The Rush placed a note on their Facebook page this week telling fans that she’s undergoing radiation treatment, and the news spread quickly, as did the get-well messages. Many people posted pictures they’d taken with the super-fan on the team’s Facebook feed. “You see somebody who’s 85 years old, vowing to fight this with the same tenacity that she brings to the games,” Rush president Lee Genier said of Souka, who was a longtime — and highly visible — fan at Edmonton Rush games, before shifting her allegiance one province over when the franchise moved to Saskatoon prior to last season. “She’s a real super fan, and even more, she’s part of the family.

Here’s more information about the planned new stadium for the Ohio Machine.
Fortress Field will cost $15 million and hold 6,500 people — more than the Franklin County village's entire population of about 4,500 people — and will be paid for using village funds. About $11.5 million will be financed with 20-year bonds and the other $3.5 million will come from capital improvement funds. Construction will begin immediately and the 250-acre complex plans to host its opening day in May.
I doubt I could that with just my hands.
