When a small school in upstate New York is not just a small school in upstate New York
Let’s start with the ‘Caciest quote in Patrick English’s Spectator piece Linsanity on the Hill: Cl’nsanity:
“The elder Lin also had his own Linsight, if you will, to Hamilton’s play, noting that, ‘The team is playing pretty well—with lots of energy. Hopefully, they pull it out in the second half,’ at halftime.
The Continentals did pull it out, with a 72-62 win over Bates in which Joseph Lin ’15 had four points and two assists.”
Yes indeedy, this train has no station. Primetime allusions to “a small school in upstate New York” will nerr get old. We all know they aren’t talking about Colgate…
Meanwhile, in the tundra, Jonathan Michaeles–Bates ’92–has moved from his position as assistant Colby football coach to head coach. He’s been serving as interim director of the program since FanBus Gate last December (too soon? maybe too soon…)
NESCAC “Michaeles, who was a wide receiver during his playing days at Bates, said he’s been fortunate to play and coach at strong academic institutions.”

Finally, we want to give a shout-out to Mr. Mike Baran, a defensemen for the Jeff’s men’s hockey team and now a semifinalist for the Joe Concannon Award.
