  1. Week Six Previews

    We warned everyone back before Labor Day...we love these football seasons, but boy do they go by fast! Saturday marks the midway point already, and there are still a lot of things to be decided. While Wayne and Hillsdale have avoided (league) blemishes to this point, they still have some tall tasks (including facing each other) remaining. As for the rest of the league, playoff opportunities are still alive for a few teams, but most of them still have to play each other (and many still have to ...

  2. Week Five Recaps

    I mentioned being uneasy about the Wayne pick at Northern, and apparently I had a right to be as the Warriors nearly fell victim to the "SuperiorDome Swoon". I also pitched the Hillsdale at Saginaw Valley game as the weekend's most exciting, and while I didn't call the victor correctly that game did wind up providing a highlight finish to Saturday's GLIAC action.

  3. Week Five Previews

    Wow...hard to believe a month of the season is already behind us and we're ticking the calendar over to October. While the league certainly doesn't look or feel the same as it has in a while, I would say the Region (and one could argue the nation) doesn't look or feel the same either. We'll talk more about that in the weeks to come as we start taking a closer look at the playoff picture another four or five weeks from now, but even at this point there are some big things going on in the league... ...

  4. Week Four Recaps

    Things went relatively according to script yesterday...including Grand Valley imploding on itself once again. While I'll admit that it's hard to call that GV's "script", so far that's what the 2011 Lakers have consistently put on the field. Until we something different, it's hard to expect much else.

    We talked last week that The Storm gave Hillsdale fits a year ago, and they did so once again as the entered they fourth quarter with the lead. ...

  5. Week Four Preview

    Over my years of writing this column, I have often spoken about how college football is a topsy-turvy world. Something that appears rock solid one week can elicit bewilderment the next. Case in point, five of the top eight teams in our Top 25 rankings took it on the chin last weekend. As if that weren't interesting enough, those who follow the GLIAC have seen Grand Valley drop two straight for the first time since 2004, get off to its worst start since the 2000 season, and fall out of our poll ...
