Thanks for ALL of the advice. I am guessing it was Mechanical Life Screwing With Me.

I had loosened and and partially removed the CS more than once. The chain alignment was good and the CS would drag as it was tightened. Today the weather was good so I checked the chain and the rear wheel alignment, all was good. Removed the CS and looked for debri and any sign of scraping, NONE. Reinstalled the CS and chain, tightened it...no drag...loosened it...no drag...tightened it again...no drag...torqued it...no drag. Bad, I did not find the problem. Good, there was a positive solution.

Thanks for the suggestions.
