Gallaudet football

Gallaudet football loses an opponent

the scheduled 10/6/18 game with Mt Ida College
has been cancelled.

Mt Ida College announced on its web site that
the college will close its doors for good.
The University of Massachusetts system is
assuming responsibility for these Mt Ida
students and the campus.

Not addressed, especially football, is the
Mt Ida College athletics.

While Mt Ida defeated Gallaudet 28-21 last
fall, both teams were tied with a 3-4
record in Eastern Collegiate Football
Conference.

Would the conference be impacted by the
closing? Hope not.

The Gallaudet tweet said:
Since 2007 only 2 foes have played #GUBison ?? every year;
@MTimePrivateers & @MountIdaFB. Yesterday, @MountIdaCollege announced it
will close this spring. Our thoughts are w/@MtIdaAthletics, staff &
students after learning of this surprising & unfortunate news #MustangCity

a comment about harness racing

in a long editorial, an angry hearing fan said
that harness racing business is down and is not
what it used to be years ago – and is afraid
the tracks will close up for good

DeafDigest Sports is mentioning this for one
reason – one of the top harness racing drivers
is Rick Macomber. He is deaf and as a young
man, played basketball and soccer at Gallaudet.

He is Gallaudet’s longest continuing professional
athlete. He mainly races in that state of Indiana.
