Anyone that commits such a heinous sin is NOT a Catholic let alone a Christian! Lumping animals in with one group that strives for good is idiocy.

You can read mine on Friday in Quick Hits. You know how it works.  ;D

My prediction is :

SJU 35

Whitworth 39

How much do you guys think NCC’s second round woes have to do with the complete disruption of their rhythm as a result of the trimester schedule, making it coincide with finals week? Also, throw in Thanksgiving for good measure. When they do make it past the second round, they have had decent success in the third round, stomping Bethel in MN in 2013 and leading Whitewater going into the 4th quarter in 2010. Furthermore, do you guys think the switch to semesters next year might alleviate this situation?

St. Norbert 23 - UWEC 30
UWW 45 - UWEC 0

Those syllogisms are prone to fallacy. I mean, yeah, WW will probably win, but I don't think its going to be an absolute rout by any means. SNC is a different team now than they were week 2.

This has always been one of my favorite underdog rationalizations.  As if their opponent isn't and did their growing between week one and two then became stagnate.  Plus one for it.
As far as I'm concerned, it's only a matter of time before Whitewater is back to who they were historically prior to Leipold showing them the ropes comparable to the boat Iowa St will be in when Campbell sets sail!
Who was Whitewater BEFORE Leipold? What is Bullis' connection to the school prior to Leipold? Time will tell if Whitewater can sustain a winning tradition beyond a decade or two. Out of 13,000 students, only a moron couldn't put a team together!
