William & Mary faculty pushing for reinstatement of eliminated sports, new strategic plan

William & Mary faculty members will continue their push for reinstatement of seven varsity sports proposed recently for elimination in a resolution to be introduced at a Faculty Assembly meeting Tuesday afternoon.

Suzanne C. Hagedorn, an associate professor of English at W&M said that she, Business professor Katherine Guthrie and Law professor Tom McSweeney have drafted a set of motions in consultation with other faculty that at least two FA members plan to put on the floor for discussion and debate.

With few students and no fall sports, business dries up around ODU

Ynot Italian founder Tony DiSilvestro is unequivocal about how the loss of an Old Dominion University football season and a truncated fall semester have affected his business.

“It’s been really tough,” DiSilvestro said.

Businesses near the campus of ODU have been through mandated closures and restrictions on their capacity, but the fall semester has brought with it more trouble: no sporting events and a decreased student presence on campus.

Ynot is the ticket sponsor for both ODU athletics and campus events and also sells its pizza at football games and during events in the Chartway Arena. DiSilvestro said the lack of events has taken a huge chunk out of his company’s business.

Academy Sports And Outdoors: Cheap, Probably For A Reason (NASDAQ:ASO)

Academy Sports and Outdoors (ASO) has gone public and while the company enjoys great operating momentum since the Covid-19 outbreak, investors are very cautious on the prospects for the shares despite these circumstances.

Investors seem to recognize that the company still torches along some debt and is not the strongest player in a very competitive field, with investors arguably cautious on the prospects if the conditions ‘”normalize.” I recognize that shares look cheap, yet have the same concerns, as I am not automatically buying the softness following the offering.
