Every year we talk about how crazy this league is, and just when it seems like we've seen it all...we get yesterday. Nothing short of unbelievable, and on a lot of levels...numerous upsets, amazing performances, and a final result for the year that may have seemed unlikely even just a few days ago. After the dust cleared, we are now left with an outright GLIAC Championship for Hillsdale College. Congratulations to Head Coach Keith Otterbein and the Chargers for an incredible season of hard work

I've made everyone wait until right before Week Eleven gets going to throw my thoughts at this, and as I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing...that is my policy.

Well here it is, gang...2011's last hurrah for the bulk of the league.

We talked last week about this being a budding rivalry...well, ODU did its part on Saturday to make that a reality. Not only did they ensure a winning season

Only two weeks to go! I warn everyone each year that this thing goes by in a hurry, but even I am somehow surprised by that fact every season.
