Breaking News:

The Johns Hopkins vs Muhlenberg game will be televised on ESPN 3 this year. Both teams have been the two most dominant teams in their conference but both teams are also experiencing much turnover.

You should post this in the Centennial Conference room in the South Region. That should be interesting to see.

Except there are more non-conf visitors to that board than active posters most seasons...

Even fewer if people post on the MAC board instead!

Thanks for posting Hank! Hopefully ESPN will follow with more D3 FB games on ESPN 3. It's great football that dlip believes people would enjoy.

Generally, if schools are willing to pay for it, ESPN3 will host it. That's how a lot of the smaller D-I productions work, too.

I'll be watching....
I wish more schools would do it.
My buddy once asked Channel 6 in Philly why they didn't televise local D2 and D3 football..  He was told that they would get better ratings with women's bowling reruns..._(true story).... :-\

Correct... ESPN3 (WatchESPN) is mainly a portal.

It was a better name when Keith Olbermann talked about his highlight his freshman year when he ran back a 100 yard fumble recovery and finished with Tennessee (with a Maryland reference) is running off to Kentucky. LOL

Decided I'm going to spam every conference board with my preseason (non-returning-starter-adjusted) projections.

Team   Rating   Overall   Conference
Del Val         0.9057   8.1-1.9   7.8-1.2
Albright      0.8375   7.4-2.6   7.0-2.0
Stevenson      0.8077   7.2-2.8   6.8-2.2
Widener      0.6732   5.9-4.1   5.5-3.5
King's         0.5519   5.0-5.0   4.5-4.5
Lebanon Valley   0.5203   4.7-5.3   4.3-4.7
Lycoming      0.5006   4.4-5.6   4.1-4.9
Wilkes         0.2887   2.5-7.5   2.5-6.5
Misericordia      0.1325   1.5-8.5   1.4-7.6
FDU-Florham   0.0950   1.2-8.8   1.1-7.9

At Week 10 last season, Del Val was 3rd in the conference behind Albright & Stevenson, but dismantling Widener and then beating a dang good Muhlenberg team shot them up into first (Stevenson's loss to Wilkes helped, too). I've tried a few different ways of incorporating previous seasons, and using a team's final rating (i.e. how they were playing at the end of the season) pretty much always produces the best results. I'll be interested to see if they bring enough back to keep that momentum going into the season.

Not sure I'm buying Albright being that high...
Time will tell I guess... feel free to copy and post this in December if I'm wrong...:)

I'll be interested to see if they bring enough back to keep that momentum going into the season.

I think going into the season, the breakdown within the conference will be as followed:

Tier I (Championship Contender)
1. Stevenson
2. Del Val

Tier II (Dark Horse)
3. Albright

Tier III (Early Season Contender)
4. Widener

Tier IV (Middle of the Pack)
5. Lebanon Valley
6. King's
7. Lycoming
8. Wilkes

Tier V (Bottom Feeder)
9. FDU-Florham
10. Misericordia

Obviously the actual result will shake out differently as unforeseen injuries and unknown transfers during the offseason will create an impact. I believe based on what I seen last season, it is going to end with a Stevenson vs Del Val race for the conference championship. I'd circle the September 23 game, Stevenson at Del Val, as the conference game of the year since it could be a key decision for deciding who wins the conference.
Go Mustangs!
