Colonial girls basketball coach Cindy Richardson, pictured during a game vs. Timber Creek on Jan. 24, 2018, recorded her 300th with the program on Saturday.

Former Grenadier players, spanning the past two decades, offered their congratulations after Colonial defeated Gainesville 55-16 on Saturday at the Florida Prospects Thanksgiving Classic in Winter Haven.

“So much better than the wins are the relationships I have with those players,” said Richardson, a 1996 Colonial graduate. “They’re basically my daughters and will always be my daughters. It doesn’t matter if they graduated 10 or 15 years ago. They still call and they still come by the house.”

Richardson’s youngest daughter is a freshman on this year’s team. Her

UK student threatened with expulsion pro-life views wins payout

Julia Rynkiewicz | ADF International

A midwifery student banned from her hospital placement at Nottingham University in England won an apology and settlement from the university.

On Nov. 25, the university apologized to Julia Rynkiewicz for suspending her because of her involvement with the pro-life Students for Life Society and paid her an undisclosed amount. For four months, the university subjected her to a fitness-to-practice investigation because she was a midwife who wanted babies to be born alive. The investigations stopped her studies and left her without access to student financial aid.

Rynkiewicz served as president of Nottingham’s Students for Life. The school said she was unable to be a midwife because of material available at the society’s stall and her public association with the society. Nottingham’s school policy officially supports abortion. 

“One of Julia’s lecturers lodged a complaint

Every contender’s chance to reach the College Football Playoff if it wins out

With just a few weeks remaining before College Football Playoff Selection Day, only a few programs truly control their own destiny. For everyone else, it’s a matter of degree.

And the variance in those degrees can be large. The difference between what else needs to happen for Oklahoma to win out and reach the playoff versus, say, what Northwestern needs if it wins out is pretty substantial. But here to help us parse through it all is the Allstate Playoff Predictor, which will run through each team’s chances in the event it wins out. Let’s break them down.

Locks and virtual locks: Alabama (7-0), Notre Dame (8-0), Ohio State (4-0), Florida (6-1)

All of the marquee undefeated programs are obviously in if they win out, and Florida joins them in the over-90% category should it win out and be a one-loss SEC champion. This part is easy — we

Inching toward exit, Trump says he’ll leave if Biden wins Electoral College vote

WASHINGTON/REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, the closest he has come to conceding the Nov. 3 election, even as he repeated unfounded claims of massive voter fraud.

Speaking to reporters on the Thanksgiving holiday, Republican Trump said if Democrat Biden – who is due to be sworn in on Jan. 20 – is formally declared the winner by the Electoral College, he will depart the White House.

Asked if he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, Trump said: “Certainly I will. Certainly I will. And you know that.”

But Trump said it would be hard for him to concede because “we know there was massive fraud.”

“It was a rigged election … at the highest level,” Trump insisted

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Minnesota Vikings 31-28 on Sunday to earn their third win of the season. Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes. Elsewhere in the division, the Eagles lost, Washington won and the New York Giants are off this week.

That means the NFC East leader is still Philadelphia at 3-6-1. The Giants, Cowboys and Washington are all right behind with a 3-7 record.

College football bowl projections: Oklahoma, Northwestern vault into major games after top 25 wins

Week 12 of the college football season is in the books, and we have two new teams in the New Year’s Six bowl projections. There have not been any changes to the College Football Playoff projections for a couple weeks now, mostly because those teams have either not played or held serve by winning games.

Back to those New Year’s Six projections. There was Bedlam where Oklahoma trounced Oklahoma State 41-13 to further shake up the Big 12 race. Iowa State remains in first place by a full game after roughing up Kansas State, 45-0. The Cyclones play at Texas next week, and a win would secure a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game. A loss could create as much as a four-way tie at the top of the league standings.
