  1. I remember that day! Was a good day, too! Yes, when I go to games, I do sit up there most of the time.

    Thank you for the kind words....still getting my feet wet, and hope to do some more in depth stuff next year, but I'm really enjoying doing this so far!
  2. Howdy! BC Dude introduced us down at Tahlequah a couple of years ago. Do you sit up in EE with all the regulars? I'm over in Section C with the family and older alumni and townies (I fit all three categories!).

    Keep up the good work. If you want some photos sometime let me know. I have a decent camera and photo pass for home games.

Parity, Targeting, and Family Week

by Ian Carlson on 09-21-2017 at 10:23 PM
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

Bearcats and Tigers Lead the Way Early On

by Ian Carlson on 09-15-2017 at 08:51 AM
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:

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

by Ian Carlson on 09-06-2017 at 09:49 PM
It was an interesting week around the nation in the first set of games of the 2017 season, as nearly half of the 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

2017 MIAA Preview

by Ian Carlson on 08-29-2017 at 06:05 PM
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

A Recap of the 2016 Season

by Ian Carlson on 12-21-2016 at 10:15 PM
The 2016 season came to an end this past Saturday and, for the sixth time, the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats were the last team standing as they knocked of the North Alabama Lions 29-3 in a snowstorm at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas in front of what looked to be about 5,000 fans. While the game was played in less than favorable conditions, it caught the eye of almost 800,000 people across the country on ESPN2, making it the highest rated D2 National Championship game in some
