  1. Rivalry Week and the Final Push to the Postseason

    It’s that time of year…Rivalry Week! I’m glad the MIAA moved this back to the end of the season this year, as it makes an exciting final week of the season even more so. The playoffs are less than two weeks away, and while the Regional Rankings somewhat surprisingly did not change in the top seven this past week, the Rivalry Week games could absolutely cause some shakeups among the three MIAA teams that reside in that top seven. Before we get to the games this week and another look at the ...
  2. Predictions for Tomorrows third Regional Rankings

    Once again, NSIC Columnist Matt Witwicki, former GAC Columnist Armo Wood, and I had a conference call to discuss where we thought the Super Region 3 Regional Advisory Committee might put the teams in tomorrow’s regional rankings. In case you had forgotten, here are last week’s rankings:

  3. Week 10 and the Ever-Changing Playoff Picture

    After finally getting all the games right for the first time this season in Week 8, Week 9 roughed me up a bit, as I went 3-3 for the second time this year. Once again, both the Hornets and Lopers proved me wrong…which is a very good thing for the Hornets and a not so good thing for the Lopers. Also good for the Hornets this week was the news that they jumped UMD in this week’s Regional Rankings, moving up from fifth to fourth. Joining them and the Bearcats this week in the top seven of the ...
  4. Debating the First Regional Rankings and Two Big Games This Week

    The big news this week is, without question, the release of the first regional rankings. This has usually been the case in years past, but this year’s release has gotten extra buzz primarily due to how differently the criteria were applied in our Super Region 3. Going in, it was known that the Regional Advisory Committee in SR3 would likely require some additional input in order to rank the teams, since three of the four conferences (GAC, MIAA, and NSIC) do not play any out of conference games. ...

  5. My Predictions on tomorrow's Super Region 3 Rankings

    Okay folks, we are roughly 24 hours away from the first Regional Rankings from the SR3 Regional Committee. Before I dive into the numbers, let’s take a look at who is on the committee:

    David Miller, Director of Athletics, Upper Iowa (NSIC)
    Steve Mullins, Director of Athletics, Arkansas Tech (GAC)-also on National Committee
