IHSA pushes back playoff multiplier

The Illinois High School Association’s board of directors made the decision to delay the implementation of recently adopted changes to the new multiplier waiver and success factor, until the 2015-16 school year.

The original policy called for a school to be subject to the success factor if it won two state final trophies over a 4-year period. It would place the school in a higher Class come postseason play.

Monday’s change will now require that one of the two trophies be won in the two most recent school years in order for a school to be subject to the success factor.

Notre Dame receiver arrested

Junior wide receiver Will Mahone was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested Saturday in Austintown, Ohio.

He faces a total of five charges.

The reserve, who played in two games last season, faces three felony charges, including assault of a police officer, intimidation of a public servant/party official and vandalism of a government entity.

Police were called to a scene in which they discovered a “highly-intoxicated” Mahone head-butting and punching cars and attempting to fight several individuals.


Ravens RB meets with Goodell

Ray Rice faces discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy stemming from an aggravated assault charge for allegedly striking his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, during an altercation in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino.

The two met on Monday, and it’s unclear how quickly commissioner Roger Goodell will rule on Rice’s suspension. He traditionally meets with any player facing discipline before making a decision, which is the reason Rice was in New York Monday.
