Speaking of missing the game jitters, I saw the first pre season college football magazine of the season. Street and Smith, which ran their traditional 1 page spread on D3 football. I really don't know why I waste the money to read a fairly uniformed take on D3 but I can't help myself.

Well, what did they say? I would expect them to say Mount Union and Mary Hardin-Baylor to meet again in the Stagg Bowl. I'm guessing that was not it! I could always buy a copy. But in the meantime...................!
Go Raiders and Go Cru!

Don't have it with me MUC57, but Mount Union was their #1 coming into the season with UW-Oshkosh as the #2 and UMHB as #3. I'll have to check but I don't think they predict the end of the season, just the preseason Top 25, an All-American list and a little snap shot of the teams in their Top 25. In the blurb about UMHB in mentioned nothing of the Luke Poorman transfer or Coach Pete's suspension something that I am guessing will be brought up in the D3 Kickoff.

Also for any HSU fans, the Cowboys were in the Top 15, I believe #11 but I am doing this off memory now which is not usually a good idea.

Good as UW-Oshkosh is (was), I can't see them ranked ahead of UMHB. That's just me. And actually, a lot of other people too. And we as fans can talk about the Stagg Bowl now!
2018 Stagg Bowl - UMU vs UMHB. You heard it here, folks!
I think you're right. You wasted your money. Shouldn't we know by now that D3FOOTBALL is the best source for D3 info? Hey, I'll buy you a cold one to make up for your monetary loss.
Go Cru and Go Raiders. Remember, you won't have to travel far this year for the championship game!

Folks, a moment for something not related to D3football, but to our leader, Pat Coleman.    For those who weren't aware, Division III sports isn't Pat's only passion - he sings with a very fine chorus in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Chorale.   He has an opportunity later this year to tour South Africa with the Minnesota Chorale, which will be accompanying the Minnesota Orchestra, but must pay all the costs out of pocket.   Such trips are far from inexpensive, and he has posted a Gofundme to help underwrite some of the costs.   Can you consider a small donation in appreciation of all that he has done for Division III football and other sports over the years?   If so, visit https://www.gofundme.com/choir-tour-to-south-africa

I've had the pleasure of taking similar trips with much less accomplished ensembles and they truly can be life-altering experiences.   I hope you will consider helping Pat on this journey.   And I hope Pat will leave this message up.   :)

There are plenty of D3's across the country who had the best jobs rate for their state.

This weekend was cut day in the CFL as their season starts up next weekend and Bryce Wilkerson is the lone Crusader that appears to have made the roster. Keith Reineke and Blake Jackson were cut by the Calgary Stampeders and Teidrick Smith was cut by the Ottawa Redblacks.

Bryce started the second and final preseason game this weekend and had 2 catches for 18 yards to go along with his 3 punt returns for 10 yards. In the first game Bryce also had 5 kick returns for 68 yards and 1 punt return for 51 yards.

Yeah I saw they released Keith and Blake, well it was good post collegiate experience. I'm glad to see Bryce is still with the tigercats and will keep a eye on that. Does that mean (if I'm not mistaken) that puts Bryce on the same roster as Manziel?

Yes it does, in fact all of Bryce receptions have been from Johnny Football.

I suffer from the same malaise.
