The 11 players from D2 Football picked in this year's NFL draft is more than the past two years' drafts combined.

At 4-0 and the defending national champions, No. 1 Pittsburg State got to sit back and watch everybody else duke it out for position in the MIAA on Saturday.
What the Gorillas saw, if they were indeed spending their day off observing MIAA football, was the better teams in the conference prove their worth with statement victories in a number of different fashions.

I've never been one to give one game it's own blog entry (in all four weeks I've been blogging), but we have ourselves a Thursday night game, it's live on CBS Sports and NCAA.com, it's the No. 9 team in the country and the (perhaps most underrated team in the country) No. 25 team in the country, and gosh darn it, I'm giddy for another great Washburn-Western matchup.
Now there have been some good games since I've started covering the MIAA, many of which I've been at, so I'm not going
