I always found it strange that SNC and Stevens Point don't play on a regular basis, despite only being an hour and a half away from each other. They have a nice hockey rivalry, even now that they aren't (and haven't been for a long time) in the same conference. For some reason I think I've said this before and I'm sure I've been given an explanation.

https://lakelandmuskies.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2022-23

In my summer boredom, I found Lakeland's schedule for next season. I'm excited to see that Greenville is coming to the cornfields. Lakeland plays SNC in conference two days beforehand, so we'll see how Lakeland approaches this game. Should be a fun one and I hope they advertise this game for those who don't know Greenville. It is disappointing to see that the Muskies can't fill their schedule with D3 opponents as they have not one, but two, non D3 opponents in Moody Bible Institute and Cardinal Stritch. At least they aren't playing Silver Lake this year.

You'd have a real scoop for the local paper if they were, considering that Silver Lake College closed its doors for good two years ago. ;)

Excellent analogy. I always had the suspicion that Silver Lake College was the kind of school that, if you walked into a diner in Manitowoc and asked someone for directions to the Silver Lake campus, he or she might very well have no idea what you were talking about.

The local paper is trash. I probably knew that when it happened two years ago, but deleted it from my memory.

I can basically say that for Lakeland too. There is hardly any press in Sheboygan actually promoting Lakeland events. For those who don't know, Lakeland isn't even in Sheboygan. It's in the cornfields 15 minutes outside of the city with a Plymouth address. The furthest any students come into town is probably the Northside Walmart. It's sad, actually.

I was actually in downtown Sheboygan just this weekend including eating dinner there on Friday night. Seems like a nice place. Perhaps the Lakelanders are a wild bunch that have been banned from the downtown area?  :o

A good start for the conference as all four NACC teams - Aurora, Dominican, Rockford, and Concordia-Chicago posted wins on the opening night of regular season play. The "best" win was . . .?

Uh. Lakeland.

They were picked 10th in the NACC and they opened up against Lake Forest, picked 6th in the MWC. They came out smoking, jumping out to a 16-2 lead.

Double digits basically the rest of the way. LFC got it to 10 a couple of times, but LU responded each time.

Cam Jaeger, one Lakeland's better players, didn't even suit up. Injured.

Not to mention the fact that it was not called Silver Lake College when it closed.

The Pheasants being known for one of the more peculiar rebranding efforts.

I would agree.

Here is what I learned from clicking on the link you provided: The gym at Lakeland is named for someone who goes by the name of "Moose". That is pure awesomeness.

The 1970 and 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates had three pitchers named Bob Moose, Bob Veale, and John Lamb.
