I thought I had read that on the boards somewhere... maybe I am confusing things, but fairly sure that had been discussed previously (I'm not great at searching the boards SMH).

It is my understanding that Thomas More has sent a letter of interest to the OAC. Do I think it's something that happens? Probably not as I don't believe schools in the conference want 11 members. The only scenario I can imagine working out from here is that Wilmington has a desire to go back to the Heartland and is accepted back making room for Thomas More (not completely out of the question in my opinion).

I am willing to bet TMC has sent an letter of interest to a number of conferences. I am not surprised in the least OAC got one. I am sure they sent another (or continued conversations) to the MIAA. I am sure the NCAC and the HCAC also got letters.

And who knows... now-a-days, 11 members isn't as bad a deal as it used to be. Unbalanced schedules are also starting to become a bit more normal - or at least discussed.

Thomas More and the MIAA have had conversations about Membership? That's surprising. They're a four-hour drive away from the closest current members.

Still closer than Finlandia!

Man, 35 seniors back on the strength of last season?  That sounds like it'll be painful for the rest of the CCIW not named NCC.

Wheaton is a QB away from being a top 4 team in the country. They have depth, experience and lots of talent/speed at every position. Defensively they will be better than ever (and last year they led the nation in sacks). As an added plus they are 3 deep at kicker!

NCC has similar experience and talent returning with different question marks (WR/DB). Those two will definitely be national contenders and top 10/Top 5 teams IMO.

It's an unusually strong top 2 in the CCIW this year.

37 DAYS TILL KICKOFF!

I'm very optimistic for W&L this year. Last year we never seemed to play a full 4 quarters. Lost some heart breakers when they could have put the game away but lost focus in 2nd half or they came out dead in 1st half. Ball control hurt us in those close games last year. We can not turn the ball over.

Guess we will see what we got when we scrimmage Brevard in a few of weeks then face off with JHU.

Here is a short 2017 W&L hype video:

If your team has a video please share.
