Ypsi, let's wait and see how much the Titans improve by next year -- esp. the big three and better consistency from McGraw. I have little doubt that Ehresman and Merritt will again be all-conference level players next year again. McGraw too. So, key may be how much they all improve, and how much the key role players also improve -- Schneider and Shanks, in particular. What kind of bench play IWU will have next year, with the departure of some key seniors -- esp. Kelly, Lehocky, others. Titans will surely contend, likely be voted #1 or #2 in the CCIW pre-season poll, but nobody in the league will give it to them, some teams will again be very strong. Eppard is back, right? and NCC will again be running at everyone with their "system." WC will no doubt be good again, even with the many graduations, esp. McDaniels. I'm sure again a Mia Smith very tough pre-CCIW schedule, as usual. However, I too hope next season is really a good one for the Titans -- as they have the key players, many pieces of a winning formula and tons of experience. Always good coaching and preparation. We'll see. Gotta be optimistic, but let's not get carried away.
