Alright, Cru, so you have Linfield, HSU, and St. Thomas in your bracket. Get. It. Done. Just come out and play like you can. None of this other stuff matters anymore. It is what it is. Go win.

Not a lot of respect for the defending National Champs in the D3 predictions.

Ofcourse, I'll admit that I'm pretty nervous about getting back to Salem, considering the anemic offense and the murderer's row of opponents that the NCAA committee saddled us with.

one at a time... I don't take the write up to be disrespectful The Cru have a very tough road ahead, very...tough.... Your talking Chapman, who could pull a rabbit out of a hat and fool you, then a rematch of one or two we faced this season so far and it was not easy, then St. Thomas...That is one road from hell to be playing on, the only saving grace is home. But we can say this.. it is going to be one hell of a bracket to watch.

Hello Cru Nation - I might be the only Chapman poster on these boards so i felt the need to say Hello and Good Luck. This Chapman team is special and has shown the most improvement over the course of a season as any Panther team i have ever seen. The Trinity lose was a fluke, coaches took their foot off the gas and then couldn't regroup. Haven't lost a game since.
Wish i could attend the game, hope everyone plays safe and hard. We could make it close or lose by 5 touchdowns, either way im excited. Go Chaptown!

I watched the Trinity loss and I'm not sure it was a
"taking the foot off the gas situation" as much as a meltdown by the offense and coaches to give Trinity the game.  The fumble that led to the game tying drive, the FG that got blocked that would have given Chapman a lead at the end of regulation, and then calling a passing play on first down in OT (when a FG was all that was needed to win it) that resulted in the fumble and game winning return by Trinity were all avoidable mistakes....IMO.  That being said, I absolutely agree that Chapman has improved a lot this season.  I was at the first game of the year and they were better than I expected then.  I've only seen improvement since.  I don't think they match up well against MHB (who does?) but they should be proud of the progress they've made this year.
Go Cats!

Congrats to your Panthers on the great season.  It's probably a little late, but safe travels to everyone who is going to the game.  Hopefully the stream works for everyone else.  As for me, I'll be on campus bright and early.

Go Cru!
