Week 2 Poll...

1. Washington & Lee University
2. Rutgers University-Newark
3. University Of Mary Washington
4. Rowan University
5. Lynchburg College
6.  Maryville College
7. Oglethorpe University
8. William Paterson University
9. Stockton University
10. Randolph-Macon College


few of these teams have some cupcake schedules...WPU has one legit win over etown. and same with stockton. i'm more of a NJAC tracker but i can tell you Newark is LEGIT. hopefully they get their first NJAC trophy. and a lot of these teams are teams i've never even heard of, which is awesome.

While I get that perhaps Willy P or Stockton's schedule hasn't been the best let's make sure we are fair with our assessments.  The overall record of Stockton's opponents thru 6 games is 15-11-13 in comparison the overall record of Rutgers Newark's opponents thru 7 games is 16-25-3.  I don't have the time to get into strength of schedule etc for every team but Rutgers Newark is off to a great start and is riding their ranking from the end of last year.  I really don't see an impressive win on their resume yet (only beat 2 teams with winning records; Nazareth 4-2 & Elmhurst 3-1-2).  Let's see how this plays out a little more before we dismiss or crown teams before more of the season is played.

i saw them play a few times this year so that's the only reason i claimed they were legit. they also have a pretty soft schedule but we will see when they meet Rowan what level they are on. Rowan is also very good now that Doherty is back

If you have followed Oxy, this is the same Oxy that let the kids camp in their office protesting, on their phones ordering take out...need I say more. The same Oxy, when a club set out small flags as memorial to 911, kids stole the flags twice... Big news this year flags were not stolen.
I've read tales about schools all across the country that sound very similar to what you're describing at Oxy. Nothing you've posted about Occidental strikes me as being out of the ordinary, given the current climate of American higher education.

olddog likes to pretend that Redlands is caught in a time warp where there's uniformity and conformity and no rebellion among the students. He thinks Redlands students are always well-behaved, always polite and always nicely dressed, hanging out at the soda fountain and going to campus sock hops. olddog thinks when Redlands students are told to do so something, they do so right away without question to their elders. He sees Redlands students like this:



Little does he know there are precious little triggered snowflakes everywhere.

I just heard the other side to this story (there is a lot more to this) and as a Wheaton alum it made me feel somewhat better.   What's reported currently is obviously one account. 

Again, I would agree with others if what is reported actually happened, these guys should not being playing for Wheaton, period.

Whats the gist of the "other side" of the story?  The allegations are pretty detailed and heinous..unless the other side is none of this happened, there's quite a lot that would need to be contradicted (i.e. duct taped, hauled away, beaten, attempted insertion of an object into the victim's rectum, left injured and half naked to fend for himself).

Robertgoulet previously posted that he didn't realize there were so many attorneys on here.
Keep in mind that whatever statement Wheaton has made so far, sufficient or not, was most likely done on the advice of their attorney.  :)

This SLU team has now conceded 17 goals in 7 games.  They conceded 24 in 15 games in 2009 which (until it appears now) was the worst season (in my opinion) since the mid 90s.  The '05 team had a leaky defense but still got to the sweet 16.  They've had plenty of opportunities to convince me they could right the ship but this is going to be a bad season.

ECSU cannot maintain ball possession today, ie poor and intercepted passes, Gordon clearly the superior side, therefore Gordon looks to win this one 2-0 @7 min mark 2nd half. ::)

Agreed.

Wheaton's statement described the events as: "entirely unacceptable and inconsistent with the values we share as human beings and as members of an academic community that espouses to live according to our Community Covenant". Regardless of any other side of the story that is the sort of description that warrants a firmer response than community service, an essay and a maybe a 1-game suspension.

The phrase "inconsistent with the values we share as human beings" is strong. It's not something you say when a college kid drinks underage or steals an iPad.

I like the spread.  At least it looks like we are at least watching the results and not just mailing it in each week.  I like the up and down movement as the teams either produce or dont.  Still find it hard to believe that 2 people dont have framingham on the ballot.

One of them be me. I think CNU and Salisbury beat Framingham. I'm voter #2. Could change after next week.
