What is the coach’s responsibility?


There is a good story from USA Today on a coach's responsibility relative to their scholarship athletes following NCAA rules. To a man, the coaches interviewed in this piece felt it was nearly impossible to police everything.

It seems like the day for sad stories (see Husky post below). This one from USA Today chronicles two players, one from Wake Forest, the other at Mississippi, and how they are coping with the loss of brothers. By the way, Ol' Miss and Wake Forest play Saturday.


The Everett Silvertips have picked a captain. The Portland Winter Hawks haven't named a captain yet, but coach Mike Williamson has other worries.

We also have a Chiefs question posted on Jeff Bunch's Chiefs Report blog.

UPDATE: The Seattle Times ran previews of the Thunderbirds' season and the Silvertips' year, one that is expected to be successful.
