  1. Re: From D3: U. of St. Thomas kicked out of their league

    They should have just come out and said "St Thomas has been kicking our collective a$$'es for YEARS and we are tired of it. But not so tired that any of us are willing to do something to make...

    Re: UNC-Pembroke Football / The MEC

    Trying to decipher the logic process of a 19 year old boys mind is fraught with danger! Only thing comparable is trying to decipher what's going on in your 13 year old daughters head!!!!

    Re: UNC-Pembroke Football / The MEC

    I agree that sometimes starting QBs do transfer for any number of reasons. But it is a red flag and makes people wonder what the real story is. At a D1 you tend to get a lot of coverage that usually...

    Seems like both...No playoffs and keep it local were the support and interest are.

    I don't expect the NCAA will change any time soon from having NC for DII so it would seem that the next best...

    Re: The B1G: The rich get richer

    So you seem to be advocating an even higher degree of regionalization in the DII playoffs.

    One year "turn around" is possible, but not probable. More likely that it takes at least two years. If the returning players are as good as your friend thinks, the players who were redshirted last...

    Fact I just learned about "small college" football in 1967. Apparently the UPI Coaches poll lumped NCAA College Division and NAIA teams together. Fairmont finished ranked #4 in the nation with West...

    Re: MEC/WVIAC Football History

    Looks like the first year the WVIAC was in the NCAA DII was 1995. Don't know if they weren't eligible for post season play in 1995 and 96 or if they just didn't get any teams selected.

    Re: MEC/WVIAC Football History

    Yes. Many (most?) "small" schools were in the NAIA prior to mid/late 80's I think. I believe a few (all? most? some?) PSAC schools were in the NAIA as well.

    Here's a link to a Wiki page about...

    MEC/WVIAC Football History

    With two new football programs starting this coming season and one in 2020, I wanted to provide a little recap of the football playoff history of the current MEC and the WVIAC before that. Here...

    Yes it is but it helps improve your odds of success when you always have a second (and third and often fourth) team in the playoffs!!

    Not exactly. Notre Dame broke through in the MEC in a big way last year and proved their playoff metal and you can make a case that Shepherd did block them in 2017 when they finished #2 in the MEC...

    Re: UNC-Pembroke Football / The MEC

    Much of the debate centers around the supposed depth of the PSAC. As you state, it is presumed that the PSAC puts in stronger teams while the MEC puts in the best team. Let's look at the first part...

    I think the addition of UNCP makes the MEC stronger as will the addition of Frostburg. Both are bigger schools and have a track record of success. Sure, UNCP is up and down from year to year and...
