Commissioners to reconsider early signing proposal in 2016
ESPN
College football will remain without an early signing period for at least one more year. After two days of debate, commissioners from the 10 FBS conferences tabled a proposal Wednesday that would have introduced an early signing period for the first time in the sport. By tabling the issue, commissioners hope the NCAA's new football oversight committee will further examine the proposal as an entry point to address a host of recruiting matters -- including satellite camps, oversigning and grayshirting.

Ten minutes later, the left-handed-hitting Wiseman counted six balls that had cleared the fence in right and right-center.

Should high school rodeo riders get PE credit?
EdSource via KQED-FM
California ranks third in the nation in the number of high school rodeo riders, trailing Texas and Idaho, although the number is small — just 595 California high school students are registered with the National High School Rodeo Association.

Patch Chicago via Mokena Patch
Why are regular physicals important for a child? It's no secret that kids pick up germs at school and pass them along to their siblings, parents, teachers and coaches.
