JSM Halloween quiz ... can you name the famous face that graces the pumpkin carving at left? We'll answer at the end, but if you can't wait you can find it and other sports-related pumpkins at this website.

A couple of things to pass along on this day before Halloween (and Reformation Day) and two days before All Saints Day ...

A reminder of the approaching deadline for the CSRI Scholarly Conference on College Sport, April 21-23 at the University of North Carolina. The conference is now accepting abstracts and will continue to do so through next January 15. More submission information can be found here.

Also, don't forget the Sports Division blog at BEA. It has important information about events, programs and panels at next year's BEA Convention in Las Vegas. BEA is also conducting a survey to learn more about college sports programs around the country, and hopes to present the findings in a pre-convention panel. If you are interested in the survey you can find it here.

One more reminder ... don't forget to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night when Daylight Savings Time ends (remember, fall back ... spring forward). Yes, an extra hour of sleep this weekend!

The answer to our pumpkin puzzle? None other than St. Louis Cardinals legend Stan Musial, the only person upon his retirement to rank in the top 25 all-time in every major batting category.
