Re: Connecticut moving to Big East for all sports except football

UMass is a CAA member for certain sports right now...would the CAA accept them in football is a question that no one knows the answer... I doubt it because the preponderance of the major sports belong to the A-10, which doesn’t have football any longer...and UMass will not pull those teams out of t...

The Polling Industry Is in Crisis

The polls were unequivocal. In 2016, two days before Michigan’s Democratic primary, the respected Marist poll predicted that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, with 57 percent of the vote to Bernie Sanders’s 40 percent. On the morning of the March 8 primary, James Hohmann of The Washington P...

I suppose that if they DO decide to drop down, they'd go back to the CAA? Would the CAA take them football-only?

Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

Should rural and small-town Americans be reduced to serfdom? The American Founders didn’t think so. This is one reason why they created checks and balances, including the Electoral College. Today that system is threatened by a proposal called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, or NPV. Ru...
