Everyone knows about the email shutdown of Lon Morris College from a month ago, but I hadn't heard much over the last few weeks about any finality to the future of Lon Morris athletics, well, tonight, long-time Bearcats men's basketball coach, Dale Dotson told me, "Smoaky, I know you heard about the shutdown email last month, well, there won't be any athletics this year at Lon Morris College, we're done."

Dotson, who was also an All-American basketball star at Lon Morris from 1963-1965, continued, "You know, after 23-yrs, I never thought I'd get an email ending my career. It's tough to swallow, sickening situation."

Dotson said he hasn't heard from anyone from the college since the email and added, "This was supposed to be the first year our football program played in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference, so imagine how this could affect all those teams involved."
