College football coaches ready for flood of recruits as visits return

For more than a year, health and safety protocols have prevented programs in the Football Bowl Subdivision from conducting the in-person evaluations so essential to compiling team-specific recruiting boards — the tiered, by-position ranking of prospects in a given recruiting cycle.

Amid the unique circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic, the awkwardness caused by an inability to hold face-to-face meetings for most of the 2021 cycle was mitigated by several factors.

Eastern Washington University with no football? It’s been done at other schools, and here’s what they found

March Madness Twitter was abuzz last month as the Eastern Washington University men’s basketball team nearly made history.

In just their third NCAA Tournament appearance, the Eagles, listed as a 10½-point underdog in their March 20 game against three-time champion Kansas, led the Jayhawks at halftime and were up by as many as 10 points in the second half.

Duxbury football anti-Semitism shows need for mandatory Holocaust education, antihate groups say

Calls to change that have reignited after last week’s revelation that Duxbury High School football players shouted words such as “Auschwitz” on the field to direct game plays. Bills mandating Holocaust education have been pending in the State House for two years.

“I firmly believe if these kids understood the gravity of the words that they were using and the horrific events that are associated with those words, they wouldn’t have used them,” said Representative Jeffrey Roy, a Franklin Democrat who filed the House bill. “This is why we need the Genocide Education Act in place.”
