  1. Halfway Point of 2017 Shows that Defense and the Tigers are Trending Up

    Last week marked the halfway point of the season (well, technically, a little over half, but who’s counting?) and for the fourth straight week, we still have two undefeated teams (FHSU and NWMSU) and two winless teams (MSSU and NSU). There are three other teams (WU, UCM and MWSU) with winning records, one team right at .500 (ESU), and four teams (UCO, LU, UNK, and PSU) sitting at 2-4. All of the teams with winning records and losing records will still be on that side of .500 no matter how their ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Bearcats and Tigers Lead the Way Early On

    Two weeks into the season, and one word comes to mind if one were to look at the MIAA standings. It’s awful early, but that word most certainly is parity. With two games for each team in the books, we’ve got two undefeated teams, two winless teams, and eight teams tied at 1-1. To be fair, it’s a long season, and we aren’t even a quarter of the way through the 2017 campaign, but it’s shaping up to be an interesting season. Here’s a quick rundown on last week’s games:
