    Congratulations to Post on a really memorable season. While losing to Shepherd was a disppointment, it doesn' t take anything away from what this group of young men accomplished this year. I've followed the fortunes of my alma mater's football program for more than 40 years, and this team had as much talent and character as any team that has ever represented our school.

    Shepherd was the better team Saturday.

    lol Shepherd dominated this game. Guess Post didn't read your analysis!

    Thanks. The weather was very obvious even on the webcast. It started nice and quickly changed. The teams were wearing the heavy coats on the sidelines and the coaches bundled up.

    It looked like a similar day in New England when everything starts out nice and quickly changes for the worse. I was trying to pull up the weather during the game and tracked some of the changes.

    Paul,

    I like how you covered the various topics in your post. To add a little more intrigue to the weather--the wind chill actually dropped down to the low-to-mid 30s, and everyone who stuck around was pelted with sleet most of the 4th quarter.

    In this era, if they are good enough they will get a shot. Scouting is so deep now it is incredible. Reality is just so few D2 guys are good enough. Brown is a D2 star, yes, but there are 100 Brown's in D1. Remember he's also playing against much, much lesser competition than D1 defenses. He'll get some looks but I doubt drafted. He may get some free agent looks.

    It's too bad more D2 guys don't get a shot at the NFL. The guys that do are generally hard working and grateful for the opportunity. Very few divas come out of D2. A few weeks ago, Richard Sherman was whining about how the pro game isn't fun to play or watch anymore. I don't enjoy the NFL because the showboating, chest thumping and taunting have really gotten out of hand,.and the more attention TV gives to the divas like Sherman, the worse and more widespread the problem gets.

    Shane is a good player but not many D2 players get a NFL shot. Brown was impressive online last week and I will get to see him in person this week. He is the same size as Kidd and Scotland and plays receiver. Post will have their hands full with him.

And to top it all off, he's a refreshingly humble young man with OBJ-like talent, but without the diva personality.

    It hasn't been that long since we made the playoffs, we only missed out in 2014 and 2015. In an ironic twist we needed EA this year, but we were bounced from the 2014 playoffs because Post got in with EA.

    I have added the link to the webcast for the Assumption/Shepherd game.

    It will be on the web. I will have a link on my preview.

    Any idea where the Post /WSSU game will be televised? My cousin in New Mexico is interested in watching the game.

    I will probably not be at Post on Saturday. I will try to watch both games online.

    Paul: Great analysis of Saturday's championship game, and thanks for another season of good reporting. Isn't it fun to watch the NE-10 mature into a competitive and exciting conference? Will you he at Post on Saturday?

    Of the current one-loss teams (including IUP, Edinboro and the loser of Saturday's Fairmont State-Shepherd game), Assumption might actually be in better shape depending on how things shake up. Since Kutztown (who AC beat) will be in the PSAC title game against whomever comes out of the West, that's an indirect SOS boost that helps the Hounds.

    Post was clearly a winner and no one can change that, so wins column is still outweigh everything else.

    A win is a win and it doesn't matter is if it was by one point, that goes the same if you loose by 1 point or by 20 points. Game was played and the winner was decided.
