Even if you get rolled, I recommend the trip to UMHB for the BBQ alone.

Dropping this story into a few spots where perhaps Keystone might eventually find conference affiliation:
http://www.d3football.com/notables/2018/01/keystone-adds-football-brings-total-to-252

I am not going to mention the name of the poster, who on several different occasions, has posted about a few PA schools adding football over the next 3-5 years (he is an astute poster though........and might even know a bit more, but can not post at this time as his sources would read it.........and cut him off :) )

Having nothing to do with potential DeSales/Arcadia/Messiah decisions over the next 12-18 months, I could potentially see the following:

MAC EAST:
DelVal, FDU, King's, Wilkes, Misericordia, Keystone

MAC WEST:
Lycoming, LebVal, Albright, Alvernia, Widener, Stevenson

- 5 games within MAC division
- 2 rotating MAC crossover games
- 2 out-of-conference games
- Championship game between top teams in each division / crossover games between the other five teams within each division (without playing an opponent a second time)

I so wish that I could tell you all what I've been told on the hush hush. Believe me when I tell you that there is more to come..................and the conference shuffle might also rear it's ugly head before any of this plays out!

The West is looking (traditionally)a bit more, uh, "competitive" than the East.

They always do. 😜

Glad to hear Morrison practiced. I do favor Brockport in this one, but DVU average yards per play was essentially equal in that game.

IMO Wesley beats them both on the road too.

And they beat Frostburg.

Tough to say, but Morrison looked done last week. I expect to see a lot of Brown at running back

Morrison's backup Hollister did very little against the Wesley defense. Plus, he is also only about 5-foot-6, 160 pounds. He took several big hits from the Wesley defense. Brown didn't get much in the run game either other than at the goal line in their earthquake formation.

I would think that the Delaware Valley D will focus more on containing Germanerio and the pass game. They were effective with this against Wesley in the opener. Lee ran for 150-plus but they gave up very few big plays in the pass game and were able to create turnovers.

Germanerio will have to be as sharp as he was last week. The DVU back-seven is very experienced.

So much more fun hanging here than the OAC board ... can understand why MUC57 is here.

Except for some of the worst fog I've ever had to drive thru, and the weirdly racist person who accosted me in the McDonald's there, Frostburg is a really cool place to visit.  So what is it that the Road Warriors have this year that should give Mount pause?  Cox is good, but can spray a little.  Good rushing D.    But didn't just beat Witt and W&J but did so convincingly.  Something magical there.  So what is going on?

Looking for a good game this weekend.  Travel safe.

Mom, nothing they do stands out as killer, but they do most things well and do not quit.  Wesley went up 21-10 and was inside the 10 before a fumble at the 3.  Next play Frostburg breaks 80+ yard run, score quickly.  Shut down Wesley and end up in OT.  I think they benefited from who they played and think that if Wesley was where they are Wesley would be headed to Alliance this week also.  I don't think they can beat Mount, but I want to see how the handle the experience.  I hope they put up a good battle because I think the top 4 teams in the East this year were pretty good.  Maybe not winning the whole thing, but all fit in the next level.  Enjoy the game, hopefully it will be a good one.

Slight correction

No need for a final pole. Here ya go.

1   Brockport St
2   Delaware Valley
3   Frostburg St
4   Wesley
5   RPI
6   Ithaca
7   Salisbury
8   Husson
9   Alfred
10  Springfield

33 Plymouth St.

Interesting prediction.

Frostburg could jump above both Delaware Valley/Brockport or fall below Wesley because they had an easier draw in the first two rounds and Wesley beat them.

Looking at the Wesley vs DV game box score DV had no business winning that game. Obviously turnovers killed Wesley because first downs were 24-12 in favor of Wesley. Total yardage was also heavily in favor of Wesley. Looks like the weather will be sunny and 50 so no weather factors.I just don't see DV putting up enough points to win this thing.

Wesley also had the QB that started for them all last year playing in that game.  He got a bad injury early this season.

He played most that game with internal bleeding from a lacerated spleen.

The turnovers were key, but I don't think that short changes the Aggies victory. If you compare yards per play by the offenses, they are essentially equal.

They've met 3 times before though it's been a while and didn't work out to W&L's advantage:
Washington & Jefferson (0 - 3)   
Nov. 18, 1916   Richmond   L   6   10
Nov. 29, 1917   Richmond   L   0   12
Oct. 6, 1923   W&J   L   0   1
Compliments of W&L's sports information site. Little confused on the last score however.
W&J shows the 1917 game as 14-0.

W&L forfeited the 1923 game in Washington, PA because W&J's quarterback, Dr. Charles Pruner West, was black and W&J refused to bench him.
FTR: W&J doesn't list that game in its records at all, at least not the ones I have been able to find.[/b]

Interestingly enough, this past Saturday, the Rose Bowl Committee was on hand to recognize Dr. West and announced that he would be inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame December 30th.  Dr. West was a member of the W&J team that played California to a 0-0 tie in the 1921 Rose Bowl, the only scoreless tie in the history of the Grand-daddy of them all.  W&J played 11 men the entire game, including West.

Another tidbit on that season---on the train to Pasadena, West was forced to ride in the "colored" car.  His teammates chose to also ride with their "teammate, quarterback, leader and friend."

+K for the history. I'm glad W&L lists that game and counts it against our record. I wish they had an explanation in the records why it was a forfeited game. W&L is increasingly facing it's less than stellar racial past. Keeping this information front and center would be a good reminder of where we've been.

 Do you think they will drop Lee at any point?

Well Machiavelli or as Dlip points out Lew Dogg or 'gro...whatever...thanks for the complement (I think). As for my ability to recognize sarcasm, you have decided not to post using your previous handle so how am I supposed to know whether you are serious or just ignorant. There's been a lot of ignorance and "fake news" going around lately.  I should have gotten a clue from your new name...Machiavellianism is "the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct". Welcome back, oh cunning one. Why are you hiding?

Per the google machine, or the many leather bound books in my library, 'Machiavelli was an Italian war strategist and philosopher who wrote about faking his death to fool his enemies.' It's science.

La Cheeserie?

Does it go back if they lose Cortaca II?

Does anyone remember what they did in '88 when they played again in the playoffs? Growing up in Mansfield, I have a vague remembrance of the hype for that game in '88 on the Elmira TV stations.

Crazy ending in the Case Western Carnegie-Mellon game. Sorry I gave up on watching it. Hard lesson on sportsmanship.

That could hurt the Bobcats chances but Depauw did lose to Wabash, so that should help.

Has anyone noticed that the NCAA stats still have Springfield in the Liberty League?

The record is 10 or 19 by Brandon Steinheim depending on how you look at it. He went over 100 every game of the 95 and 96 seasons. Held under 100 in the 95 ECAC bowl but those stats didnít count in the rankings back then.
