On another note, the Gophers have settled on Rhoda as their QB going forward.

Team motto: "Rhoda Boat"   ;D

I was/am skeptical about Fleck, and his "methods" after seeing the hype (Being P J Fleck). But I did like the crispness that they showed vs Oregon State. Also, it seems as though one of his deals is having the players hand the ball to the officials, or, at any rate, not having a show of "Look at meism" when the play is over. I like that.

All the "Look at meism" needs to be reserved for Fleck himself.
Woke up with a headache from the night before
Cause sometimes I drink
Spent the night with my head in the toilet bowl
It's where I like to think
I said cause I don't want no one to take a piece of my heart - O.A.R., Hangover

Out of country for 2 weeks and come back to find some big surprises.  How did Stout pull out a W over UST?  It's a tough one for me as I don't like Stout (EC grad), but it is the WIAC.  And is Concordia finally going to break through to the playoffs?  I've thought they had solid teams for a few years, but maybe this is the one.  Definitely setting up for an interesting year as conference play closes in.
Funny. I am an EC grad also, and I don't like EC.  Stout won the game on Sat. because they played a team that was not used to losing, did not lose with class, and Stout cashed in.
  Stout will win some games in the WIAC.  Was a pleasure watching the game with BDB and USTbench.  USTbench and I have some mutual friends and he watched what most have been a painful outcome with class. 
Can't say the same about his team.
So...how does a team lose with class? Was there something specific they did/didn't do? Like not shake hands, or what?

Watch for yourself and come to your own conclusion(s)...scroll ahead to about 3:11:00

A U$T player (#91?) tries to steal the snap and the Tommie$ got flagged for an offsides infraction. Stout declines and so the clock was started.  U$T then burned their final timeout and cannot stop the clock after the next play. On the next play #91 blows up the line and ends up about 5 yards in the Stout backfield. The penalty was a personal however there was no additional explanation.

I don't care much about the Tommies blowing up the victory formation and the flurry of personal fouls as they went down to defeat. It's a bad look for sure, but the positives are far more tasty. Being serial victory formation offenders (as well as well-known behind the back extra point showboaters) it means that teams, particularly if UST start to slide, will feel very comfortable sticking the boots in and kicking a team when it's down. If UST makes the post season and play a WIAC in particular I think the ending could be quite entertaining in the event of a WIAC victory.

Not football-related, but it's pretty cool that there is a Johnnie headed to the International Space Station today.

1 day, thousands more to go and then UST's master plan to improve this earth and advance the common good will be achieved, once we send all the Johnnies to space.

UWP struggled quite a bit against George Fox it seems. If Stout can pull another one out this weekend I'll feel a bit better about UST.

Stout doesn't play again until September 30th. This Saturday was a bye week and then the game scheduled for the 23rd got cancelled right before the season so it's an extended 2 bye weeks.

Oh yes. Trinity Bible College and their 17 players. For the best probably.

Oh come now -- they played a whole 26 players against Grinnell!  ::)

I don't recall if the Tommies and Johnnys have been to town on the same weekend to play Carleton and St. Olaf.  Just opened in Northfield with in the past few months are Tanzenwald Brewing Company and Imminent Brewing, and in Dundas is Keepsake Cidery.

C'mon the Rube is too busy hiding in Caruso's bushes, peeping in his windows to respond with What Would SJU Do (WWSJUD).
That's his brother, please refer to your program for SJU posters' monikers....

What happens when your brother chooses to play for the evil empire's coach that consumes all of your waking thoughts? There is a D3 Football reality show waiting to be tapped here somewhere. This is a Stars Wars level family war

Speaking of which, has anyone seen "Last Chance U" on Netflix? I realize those kids don't come from the greatest of circumstances, but who would let their kid play for that guy?

I lost interest in it after a few episodes.  Now season three of Narcos is a different story.  Have you seen any of that?

That is in the queue for us...enjoying Ozark currently.

I'm curious whether I'll enjoy Narcos without Pablo?
