After next season, the Gulf South Conference is going to look different. It won’t quite have been gutted to the degree the Pac-12 has in recent weeks, but the Pac-12 can relate to the pain the GSC is enduring.

We are just going to take it one game at a time. We have to work hard and give the best effort possible. We can’t let the same mistake beat us twice. Oh sorry. I was working on my coach speak.

I made a trip home to Illinois last month. My baggage from the airplane didn’t, kind of like the way the Dallas Cowboys never seem to make the Super Bowl anymore. But that’s a column for another day.

I really could have written this column with one emoji. You know the one where the person has the hand slapping the face. That really would have covered all you need to know about the district set up for cross-country for the teams in this area.

It’s been maybe 20 years now since I covered a high school baseball championship series in another state. Some of the memories are a blur. Others are lost forever. I’m pretty sure the team I covered won the title, but what I remember for certain is that it was a unique set up in that a best of three format was used to determine a champion.
