Just look at Bethel, UST, and SJU. All three starting quarterbacks were at FBS programs or have that level of talent. But they're now playing D3 ball and loving it.

But I'm sure that has more to do with them wanting to play rather than ride the bench, and not anything to do with Title IX.

For sure! I was giving those as examples of shifting priorities for players. Guys used to be happy to walk on and just be a part of a D1 program. Now they seem to want a chance at playing. Canít blame them one bit.

The BU Clarion had an article on Roste earlier this year. Essentially he transfered so he could play, after he arrived he realized it was a great culture fit for him too. Iím guessing a lot of these transfers experience that.

Edward, your right Mt. Union(1seed) is facing a cupcake team(7/8 seed) not John Carroll(3/4 seed)in the first round. UMHB(1seed) is facing HSU(3/4 seed) in the first round. Thanks for proving my point. Anyways, it's playoff time and enough of bracket talk. My game prediction for the game unfortunately is UMHB 27 HSU 14( closest game UMHB has in the playoffs until Stagg Bowl)

I agree.  The Johnnies will be UMHB by far more than 13 points.

I didn't think the recreational use of marijuana was legal in Australia.

This isn't as far fetched as ya'll might think.  Johnnies have a ton of team speed, a D-I QB, and some legendary magic that often leaves opponents confounded when the final whistle blows. While a victory of far more than 13 is optimistic, it's not impossible. And a Johnnie victory wouldn't be shocking. They are good. That potential match-up is the quarterfinal game of the year if it occurs.

Congratulations to the Colby White Mules on winning the CBB crown. The Mules deserve an immense amount of credit for their finish this year.

Gridiron-

Not sure what the disappointment is for Colby in the post season awards.

No sour grapes here, believe me, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Bates essentially accomplished the same thing for 5 years in a row and nobody said boo. Now its the Cosgrove show and Trinity and Amherst are said to be on notice.........hold the phone.

I realize there is a lot of positive momentum in Waterville, as there should be, but at the end of the day they beat the consensus worst Bates team in 20 years, a Bowdoin team that has been become an enigma and a decent Hamilton team in a cliffhanger to go 3-6.

Cosgrove is a proven great coach. His game plans against Bates in the snow and against Bowdoin were masterful. There should be a lot of optimism in Waterville and again congratulations to the Mules. But it's a 3-6 year.
We don't always agree, but I'm 100% with you here. Cosgrove did an excellent job for a first year, and winning the CBB was nice. But I always thought calculating success with winning the CBB was a failing, and part of what has hurt Colby in recent years. As I've said before, "The first step in being a champion is believing you can be a champion". I believe that's Cosgrove's mindset, at least I hope so. They have a lot of positives to sell to recruits at Colby, i.e. the new athletic center being built and in town residences that are part of a revitalization of that area (something that's been lacking. And, a young, supportive, energetic, terrific AD. So, the future looks bright.
I agree.  Cosgrove has accomplished more in his first season than a certain unnamed Maine college football coach has in four.

Lumbercat-- no real disappointment at all here. Agree with all of your points. Things are certainly looking up in Waterville, and there's reason for lots of optimism, especially with young talent at QB.  Fortunately, Cosgrove recognized what he had and made what had ti have been a difficult decision moving the incumbent QB out. However, as we all know, until Colby is able to beat Wesleyan, Middlebury, Amherst or Trinity (the only four the Mules have not beaten in over ten seasons), no one will really take much notice. Now that Williams and Tufts are back beating them would add credibility as well.

Fredonia State 77  D'Youville 85

The Blue Devils will have a tough time in the SUNYAC this season so they need to get some wins against teams on their non-conference slate. This was one of them that could have been on the plus side. I said they would lose a close one and hoped I was wrong but they fell behind early and went into the half down 44-35.

The 2nd half was more of the same as the Spartans were in a comfort zone and Fredonia never put on the heat. The lead was mostly double digits and got as high as 16. The Blue Devils cut the margin to 7 points at 62-55, on a 3 pointer by De'Quan Smith with 7:25 to play, but they missed their next 4 shots and the Spartans made 3 layups to go back up by 13 with 5:30 on the clock. The lead was 16 points with 49 seconds left and the Blue Devils did well to cut it to a final margin of 8.

Bediako Nyasa led the Blue Devils with 17 points (7x14 fg, 3x6 3's). He added 3 rebounds and 3 assists.

Cody Johnson had 15 points (7x12 fg, 0x3 3's, 1x2 ft), 5 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Colden George had 10 points (3x4 fg, 3x4 3's, 1x2 ft) with 2 assists a steal and a rebound on 22 minutes off the bench.

The Spartans outshot Fredonia by a slim margin 27x64 (42.2%) to 31x78 (39.7%) and also won the rebounding battle 54 to 39.

Fredonia will be back on the court on Saturday November 17th when they travel to Medaille College to take on Washington and Jefferson College at 2:00 PM

It's that time of year again ... because of the early start date, it's possible my program might have missed a game here or there ...
