    I thought the general consensus was that next year is a rebuild given the underachievement of the 2018 season. They are going to start with a QB who most likely has never had or or has had very limited game time experience - barring a transfer. And playing a cup cake in the first game when they played a nationally ranked team in the last two years seems to be indication that something needs rebuilt - team confidence, leadership, respect for the coaches and each other? So yes, in that respect I'd say IUP is in a rebuilding year in 2019.

    Other side of that coin is an argument could be made the QB was part of the underachievement last season.

    Regroup may be the better word over rebuild. Sure hope so, anyway.

    The JUCO WR they already got is a stud. More on the way.

    I think it's an important year for Tortorella.

    Clemson just scored again.


    Freshmen WR and QB. Just sick.

    They'd both be Top 3 draft picks. Right now.

    IUP should schedule Bama.

    To be honest, I haven't kept up with the PSAC as much since I moved to Texas over the summer, but that's a fair point.

    Yeah ... and the fact that Ferris would blow Wagner off the field.

    I believe it will take Frostburg a couple of years of good recruiting and development before they agree to an OOC game with someone of Shepherd's caliber.

    I think it would be really important for Shepherd to do everything they can to get FSU on the schedule. They are going to go head to head in recruiting for a lot of players going forward. It's really the first real threat Shepherd has had for DMV players that I can remember.

    I didn't think about the recruiting competition that Shepherd would have against Frostburg. After looking at their roster the recruits come from mostly the exact same areas. Frostburg may be a little further west than Shepherd but they are a have larger enrollment and have a good program. It shouldn't take them long to compete and win in DII. Shepherd needs to continue to win on the field and continue to upgrade facilities in order to compete in recruiting. If they don't Frostburg could end up being the football power in the area. Competition is good and hopefully it will drive Shepherd to continue to make improvements. Joining the PSAC was a good first step.

    Here's an example of the competition.

    Lets don't forget Bowie State, who has been to the NCAA D-II playoffs the past 2 years. Lately they have able to recruit quality players from the DMV. They already a threat to Shepherd.

    I think its going to take Frostburg a little while before they will be able to actually compete. For starters they need a little time convert that roster into a D-II one.

They'd be better off playing one of PSAC teams they don't play this year. Why not IUP and Shepherd in a two year deal or at least 2019? Both teams are in a rebuild process and it would be a great game. And they play at Shepherd since I can get there in 10 minutes.
    Can't be done IUP is already playing at Shepherd in 2020 crossover action.
