Who had Breunig in fantasy this week? 5TDs!

With a little help from his friends, Austin Breunig accounted for 350 yards today.
He rushed 26 times for 264 yards (10.2 avg) and 3 TDs, and caught 3 passes for 86 yards (28.7 avg) and 2 TDs. 🎩 🏅

In similar fashion:
Sola Olateju accounted for 282 yards.  He carried the ball 14 times for 194 yards (13.9 avg) and 2 TD runs.  He also caught three passes for 88 yards with a 67 yard touchdown catch.

Play that no one is talking about, but hurts from a Wheaton perspective almost more than any was the dropped pass by Olateju.

In the 1st quarter at the 1:03 mark of the game video, Olateju blows past the LB straight up the seam and was 8 yards behind the LB, all alone.  The pass was right on his hands and he dropped a easy 73 yard TD pass.  I think he dropped at least 3 passes.

Sorry Coach Eash, it was not a gimmick play, IF Wheaton had executed on it.

I have been watching Wheaton Football for 35 years and I don't remember a Wheaton defensive front as dominant as this one.

USee, I made a very similar post during the game that I thought the Wheaton defense is phenomenal - the best I've seen.

I deleted it when Carthage scored on the very next play - the 49 yard pass.   :-[

This situation with the Carthage long snapper is incredible.

Pretty desperate when Carthage goes for it on 4th an 1 from their own 14 yard line.

I wasn't questioning your post either Mugsy. I don think his tackle totals at this point in the season mean anything. I just know he is a 1st team all CCIW caliber player.

On that there seems to be agreement.

I have to think Maiava is a lock for 1st team all CCIW and has an outside chance at DPOY. Having watched him the last 2 years he is the real deal.

I wasn't questioning Maiava's ability, at least that was not my intent. 

I was merely trying to give my opinion that I think it is too early to say his 14 tackles per game won't be surpassed by others when key players from Wheaton, Carthage or NCC play 4 quarters in CCIW games. 2 games into the season, only one for some CCIW teams.

As for Maiava, he leads the CCIW in tackles by a big margin. He has 28, with Augustana's Cassin Wolfe second at 19; his 14.0 tackles per game is four ahead of North Central's Derrek Warkenthien and Carroll's Cameron Cassaro, who are tied at 10.0. He also leads the league in both sacks and sacks per game, and he's tied for first in tackles for loss. Thing is, his stats are actually undercounted, as Anderson's spotter took away a few of his tackles (and half of a sack) in Week One and gave them to other players, something which was pointed out to me later by an NPU coach. Maiava is playing at a level I've never seen from an NPU player. He might be the best Vikings defender since the great Chuck Burgoon, who had a cup of coffee with the Minnesota Vikings in the early '70s.
ch also took some of the sting out of not traveling with the team to Nebraska for me. ;)

GS, Not to throw water on the growth & improvement of the NPU individuals you highlight above, I do think there is a minor caveat to highlight regarding the statistics.  Isn't that always the case with statistics?   :P

Maiava's leading the CCIW in tackles should take into account that NCC and Carroll have only played one game, and while Wheaton has played 2 games, the defensive starters have only played approximately one game cumulatively given both games we blowouts by halftime.  Obviously as the season progresses further, this will normalize and we'll get a better relative picture.

New Top 25 out: http://d3football.com/top25/2017/week2

Wheaton #4
North Central #5
Illinois Wesleyan #16
Carthage - ORV

Can't recall ever having 3 CCIW teams so highly rated at the same time, with a fourth receiving votes.  Granted this won't last long as there are big games in the next several weeks between each of these teams - starting with this Saturday.

Carthage @ Wheaton
Illinois Wesleyan @ North Central

BIG week of CCIW games!

Jerome Grey, Sr. 4th string RB with 9 yard TD run.  Good to see guys who have put 4 years of hard work get a chance to make plays.

58-6.

That said, would be nice to see Wheaton schedule a little tougher game to prepare for CCIW schedule.

Wheaton now with a kickoff return for TD, and a punt return for a TD.  Leading 42-6.

Watson started game with 88 yard kick return.  Nichols returned Zoo's first punt of 2nd half 51 yards.

Wonder if McWilliam's was injured.  So trainers next to him and Furrow is now in.  3rd QB playing in 1st half.
