Oh, man, this is a cynic’s dream.

The Midwestern Preparatory Academy is back in our backyard after a two-year period that it spent in Rantoul.

It is an academy for football players who just graduated high school and are looking for a college fit and it also stresses academics.

Doubters and haters could easily have a field day with this because:

• There is no actual campus. The athletes stay at the Quality Inn in Orland Hills.

• The classrooms are also held at the hotel.
