  1. Another Wild Week and the Rise of Lindenwood

    Since you are reading this, chances are football is your favorite sport. It certainly is mine, and has been since I was seven years old. Way back then (and we just won’t talk about how long ago that was--ha!), I fell in love with the NFL. While I still thoroughly enjoy watching the world’s best football players compete at the game’s highest levels on Sundays (and Mondays, and Thursdays--although I wish the latter would go away), there is just something that is really great about college ...

  2. Trouble in Pittsburg and Arrowhead Week

    Last week, I mentioned that this year could be the most exciting MIAA season since the five-way tie in 2003, and the games, for the most part, lived up to that potential. Five of the six home teams held their Family Weekend; two teams coasted, one team prevailed in a back and forth battle, and two teams were upset on their own turf. The home team that didn’t hold a Family Weekend rolled to a relatively easy win to stay undefeated, giving host teams a 4-2 record last week and a 14-10 record for ...

  3. Parity, Targeting, and Family Week

    It’s funny how things in life can work out sometimes. In last week’s column, I wrote about how it was possible that parity had reared its head in the MIAA football world this year, even though the season was only two games in. One could have argued (and I wouldn’t have disagreed) that it was too early to say that with any real conviction, but after last week’s games, that argument would be harder to defend. To be fair, it is still early, but slightly better than a quarter of the season ...

  4. The Lopers Win and Players to Keep an Eye On in 2017

    It was an interesting week around the nation in the first set of games of the 2017 season, as nearly half of the D2Football.com Top 25 lost their openers, including a couple Top Ten upsets in Super Region Three. Preseason #3 Grand Valley State was upset at GLVC contender Indianapolis 24-20, and Preseason #10 Harding lost at home to GAC rival Henderson State 28-20, putting both of those playoff teams from a year ago into playoff-mode from here on out. I say that because this region is extremely ...

  5. 2017 MIAA Preview

    It’s late August, and that can only mean one thing….football is back! It’s been eight long, long months since the Bearcats of Northwest Missouri State hoisted their record sixth NCAA Division II Football National Championship Trophy with their 30th consecutive victory and it will be interesting to see if they can challenge Grand Valley State’s D2 record of 40 straight wins in the 2017 season. Standing in their way are eleven hungry teams that have been working hard on their plans to unseat the ...
