  1. 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:

    As the calendar flips to November, the end of the regular season draws near. However, that also means the postseason is right around the corner. Just two more weekends and then the second season will begin for at least one MIAA team, and bowl games will await those that just missed the dance. It’s been a bit of a wild and relatively unpredictable season so far in 2018, and the final push ought to make for an exciting finish. This week, we’ll take a look back at last week’s games (and a ...

  3. First Regional Rankings, and the Crazy Year Continues

    The season trend of surprising results continued on for another week, and this year has been really fun to see how the games play out. For the most part, the league is the most competitive internally it has been in a long time, and we are seeing that in the results. It makes it difficult to predict the games, but there is no questioning the entertainment value of the league this year. Here’s how last week went down:

  4. Halfway Point Analysis, the First Playoff Watch, & Another "Who Knows" Week

    In what has become a pretty common theme for the season this year, there were several surprises last week. Three of the four teams that have been ranked this year lost, the NWMSU/PSU game was a bit of a letdown, UNK showed that they (and not Lindenwood) may be the team on the rise, and Missouri Southern played their closest game of the season, once again giving the Griffons some fits as they have done earlier this decade.

  5. Lindenwood Leaving, a Chat with Brandon, and PSU vs. NW Week

    It has been an eventful week in the MIAA, from last week’s games (that once again produced some surprises) to the announcement that Lindenwood will be withdrawing form the league to join the Great Lakes Valley Conference beginning next year (more on that in a bit). It was also announced by the NCAA that this year’s Division II Football National Championship Game will be held in McKinney, Texas, and will be hosted by the Lone Star Conference. It had been my hope that the game would still be ...
