I have heard also from a source that the C.B.A. will announce tomorrow that the season will be over...No real legit reason why though, also IF their is a season next year sounds like there may be no East Ky. Miners...Lets keep our fingers crossed that the front office of the Miners keep us going. Sad time for all C.B.A. fans...

The Patroons owner said over the weekend the team would finish the season and they were looking for ways to keep it going.

then Coyne might want to let someone know something fast before players leave for other leagues to pursue other playing options.

I sincerely doubt that the Patroons can keep it going if another teams drops out though and that is the word floating around out there.

The CBA is not ceasing operations.( The league will continue to operate during the off-season as well as next season) The league has decided as a whole to shorten the season and play the championship series at the end of this week. Albany/Oklahoma

All teams are expected to return next season including the East Kentucky Miners. Expect at least 7 franchises to join the CBA for next season.

I expect Albany to win big over Oklahoma

Final Standings:
1. Albany P. 13-6
2. E.Kentucky 10-7
3. Lawton Ft.Sill 11-1
4. Minot S. 6-9

I've not posted in here for a while, but I heard the rumor of the CBA folding in the Xplosion DB. I think everything went down hill after we left. The league is no good with just 4 teams and I love the optimism of some. Lawton-Ft. Sill and Minot have been dropping in turnouts, since last years Championships, which is sad. I think the best thing would be for a merging with the PBL, which is what I'm hoping the Xplosion will do if we can find a new owner.
I miss our rivalries with E.K..
