  1. Week 4 Previews and a look at the First Quarter of 2016

    It was a relatively quiet week across the entire D2 landscape in last week, with only two of the D2Football.com Top 25 teams losing (previously ranked #8 Colorado School of Mines lost to undefeated but unranked Colorado Mesa, and previously ranked #18 Valdosta St. lost to former #9 ranked North Alabama). Despite those losses, neither team fell all the way out of the top 25, so there were no newcomers this week.

  4. It's Finally That Time of Year Again!

    Time is a funny thing. On the one hand, it is hard to believe itís already been eight months since the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats hoisted the National Championship Trophy at Childrenís Mercy Park in Kansas City, but on the other hand, it sure has been a looooooooong eight months without D2 football, hasnít it? At long last, the time is almost upon us, as the 2016 season kicks off one week from today. I think we are in for another exciting season, with several teams having a realistic shot ...

  5. The 2015 NCAA Division II National Championship Game Preview

    When fall camp started at the end of the summer, one hundred and seventy teams began their 2015 NCAA Division II football journey. Every program (even defending National Champion Colorado State-Pueblo) began the season with aspirations to improve in some capacity, whether it be in their respective league standings, overall wins, or even just level of competitiveness, yet, at the end of the year, only one team will remain standing and can claim to be 2015 NCAA Division II National Champions.
