  1. Thank you!

    Dear MIAA fans,

    I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank all of you. I believe you all to be the best fans in Division II, both in terms of activity on these forums and D2Football.com, as well as in general knowledge of the Division and the game. Hands down.

    Unfortunately, as much as I love doing so, my personal and professional life are demanding more of my time. That’s a great thing regarding the former, and on most days it’s a good thing for the latter, ...
  2. The MIAA gets Bulldogged again, and Bowl Game Previews

    For the second straight year (and third in the last five seasons) the MIAA was kept out of the Regional Finals. From 2004-2013, the MIAA had at least one team make it that far and on five occasions, both of the regional finalists hailed from the conference. It’s been two years since the latest regional realignment that placed the GLIAC and MIAA into the same region, and the GLIAC has had the upper hand thus far (even with NWMSU’s win at Grand Valley State). Ferris State has knocked out the ...

  3. A Return Trip to Michigan

    In true MIAA fashion this year, the first round of the playoffs ended with a couple surprises. Two-time defending MIAA champion Fort Hays State fell to GLVC Champion Indianapolis, while Northwest Missouri State took advantage of some poor tackling by Grand Valley State to literally run away with the game in the second half. Here’s what happened:

    Fort Hays State 27
    Indianapolis 38

    The Tigers rolled into Indianapolis riding a five game winning streak that included ...

  4. Turning the Page from the Regular Season to the Postseason

    The final week of the regular season went like much of the rest of the season, in that there were some surprising results. When all of the dust settled, five teams will be playing post season football, with two teams making the field of 28 teams in the playoffs, and three other teams being selected for bowl games. Oddly enough, the bowl game that had had the longest relationship with the MIAA ended up being the only bowl that did not select a team from the conference, as the Mineral Water Bowl ...

  5. The Final Week of a Wild Regular Season

    Just when I thought I might have put my finger on the pulse of the league, last week happens and and once again chaos reigned supreme. The only uncompetitive games this week were the ones expected to be, and the other four on the slate were great games to watch. Say what you want about the quality of the league this year, there is no denying it has been an entertaining year this season. Here’s how Week 10 went down:

    Missouri Western State 25
    Nebraska Kearney 17
