If they paid me to do this (cover MIAA football for D2Football.com), they'd pay me to write what I think. I usually don't beat around the bush; Any of you who have read me for the past six years can attest to that. And I won't this year, either.

Northeastern State squandered their largest lead of the season Saturday, allowing the final 28 points of a 35-16 loss to Lindenwood, marking a disappointing end to an already-dreadful season.
