NO CANADA; BALL ST. RA’s STAYING PUT FOR BOWL GAME: The Ball State faithful are getting ready to take off for the Great White North for the Cardinals’ 4th-ever bowl game appearance. All except for the RAs:
The BALL STATE DAILY NEWS reports that the MAC school’s resident assistants won’t go bowling, because they’re not allowed to.The RAs are contractually obliged to be back on the Muncie, IN, campus on January 4th, in order to help students move back in on the following day. Unfortunately, January 5th is also the same day BSU will be in Toronto to face Rutgers in the International Bowl.
As Rutgers University’s DAILY TARGUM points out, Ball State has come out the loser in each of its three previous bowl appearances, the last coming in 1996’s Las Vegas Bowl with a defeat to Nevada.Maybe the Cards can win one for all those brave RAs left behind in the dorms.
