What We're Reading

  • »Coast Guard game will go on
  • Coast Guard football coach Bill George was doing his team's laundry Wednesday morning. That's not normally one of his duties, but his equipment staff, sports information director and other civilian employees in the athletic department were furloughed this week when the federal government shut down.
  • »How D-III colleges profit from football
  • Deadspin's take on how Division III football drives enrollment leaned heavily on analysis from D3football.com's Pat Coleman. Good take on D-III, actually.
  • »MIT kicks off season of promise
  • Bolstered by an impressive freshman class numbering 30 and coming off the program's first winning campaign in 13 years, the Engineers are geared up to take the next step under the direction.
