The football season is over for the NSIC....and I got to thinking that there's some players that I'm going to miss following and watching. I realize everyone has their favorites and this list isn't strictly a "best players" list, but instead guys that I will personally most remember from this Senior class. Feel free to chime in with yours..
If you take that headline out of context, you might think this is a bad thing. But fret not D2 fans, particularly those here in MIAA country, this is awesome.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that the Division II football title game will be played at Sporting Park, home of 2013 MLS Champion Sporting Kansas City. For those not schooled in the oft-confused geography of the matter, the big Kansas City is in Missouri. But this Kansas City is in Kansas, right across the state line from Kansas
NWMSU 59, SCSU 21
First off, huge kudos to the Huskies for getting this far. I think most SCSU fans would have been perfectly fine (a few weeks ago) if I were to say they'd go down and beat HSU, beat MSU-Mankato, and lose to the eventual D2 Champion on the road. Consider SCSU was a 6-seed who didn't make the dance til the 11th hour, this post-season run is something very memorable and unexpected.
For anyone interested in scouting the Lenoir-Rhyne Bears, here are some resources to check out. I’ll have more postings later this week after pouring over all of this!

Many times, the final score of a football game indicates exactly what kind of game it was…like last week’s 7-0 defensive battle in Shepherdstown, or this insane SEC Championship that I’m watching right now. But there are also occasions where the final score doesn’t really represent how the game played out. Today’s Super Region 1 final was that kind of game. West Chester advanced to the national semi finals with a 21 point win over MEC Champion Shepherd but this game was far from one-sided.
