The Eternal Season - Monday Novmeber 7th

Hello Again TES Friends!

And voila - the Monday is done with!  Banished for 6 more days.  Monday night brings us a great MNF matchup at the bottom of the hour, Bears at Eagles, on ESPN of course.  That will wrap up week 9 in the NFL, and the division races really begin to heat up from this point on.

And what a football weekend it was, with the Hawks rebounding from the heartbreak of a week before to down the Wolverines for the 3rd time in a row, that the first time in school history.  And the road to the Legends Division title and Big Ten title game appearance is still open - much more in the game notes that will be out Thursday night.

Monday also brings us a new chapter in the Eternal Season - the return of NCAA Hoops!  3 games tonight, the most noteworthy Valpo at Arizona at 9:00 on ESPNU.  Then Wednesday brings us 4 more games, and then on Friday - 125 of them!  That will include the Hawks who open against Chicago State - no, I don't know the mascot - at 7:00 pm. Not sure of tv coverage other than pay-for streaming at the Big Ten Network website, but if there is some, we'll have an update later in the week.  Hoops season, along with hockey, take us back to baseball season - and the cycle goes on for another year!
