Question of the Week: Would M-S be a good fit for the Big 12?

Staff writer TONY BLEILL SAYS ... Why NOT?

I think the Bulldogs would fit in well, perhaps better than they would expect. In terms of travel costs, it's a no-brainer. Mahomet-Seymour sits in the middle of the conference, with reasonable drives to Decatur, Danville and Bloomington-Normal.

Congrats to Uni soccer ...

Centennial girls' soccer

If you think the Chargers are salty this year, just wait. Only two starters will graduate from the team that won the Class 2A sectional championship on Saturday. Plus, one can reasonably expect the Chargers will get a full season from a healthy Dagny Olson, which didn't happen in 2011.
