About halfway through the second quarter, the University of Central Missouri was stuck at a total of -2 total yards and Northwest Missouri had just scored a touchdown to go up 14-0 in a game that could have been much worse if not for a few Bearcat miscues early on.
Even with the dominance NWMSU had displayed, a nice KO return from UCM WR Anthony Kirkwood and a quick 39-yard drive that made it 14-7 gave the Mules some life. Up in the press box, for a brief moment, I thought Kirkwood's

It's always fun when the Mules and Bearcats get together. The 'Bods and Gorillas have had a few epic battles, but haven't seen each other since meeting two times in four weeks in 2011.

If you've been putting up with my ramblings over the years, you might remember my "High 5." It was my unofficial ranking of the Top 5 MIAA teams I would put out each (or most) week beginning at about this point in the season and lasting through the release of Regional Rankings.

They say you shouldn't get too excited about Week 1 in football. Don't get too down if your team looks bad, and don't let yourself get too psyched if you have a great game.
The old adage is especially true for Central Missouri and Lindenwood. The Mules appeared mostly incompetent in their opening night loss at Missouri Western, but turned things around quite impressively with a 50-31 victory over No. 16 Emporia State.
Lindenwood, on the other hand, was completely shut

Some are coming off a big win. Others return to action after disappointing losses. Regardless of which side of the fence they're on, several MIAA teams that are already facing pivotal points of their season are up for more tests this week.
Central Missouri laid a big fat egg last week in St. Joseph, falling to a offensively-inept Missouri Western team that is still trying to figure out how to replace Travis Partridge at quarterback. This week, they open their home season with the
