I think the Dom Davis situation simultaneously illustrates two keys to Mount's sustained success:

1.  Best guy plays.  Every starter earns his spot every week and that is understood.  If someone is outperforming you then he plays ahead of you.  Unfortunately for Dom in the eyes of the coaching staff Fulford and Poorman were performing better than him.  It sucks for him, but only one QB starts.

2.  Next man up.  This year Trey Williams steps in for Dear.  Brish steps in for Groves.  And the expectation is there will be no gaping hole, no major fall off.  You step in and step up.  Dom did that last year as a freshman and that will never cease to be impressive and worthy of our respect. 

I wish him the best of luck at Walsh.  I hope he wins the job and lights it up.  I'm also glad his parents/family will still be close by and able to watch him play. 

Agree, Well said! :)

I know very little about UMU other than their amazing success, but I am curious what is is about LK and VK that have made them so damn good?  Any insight?

Jack Parkman,

There are so many factors that many people can list as to the success of the program under Coach L. Kehres and Coach V. Kehres. Here is just a few:

- Set the goal each year of winning the conference and making the playoffs

- Recruiting the best talent across the country.

- Building the team based upon the talent you have versus requiring players to fit into a system

- Studying in depth the competition and assessing with great accuracy a game plan for success

- Recruiting those players who are very intelligent and want to obtain their degrees in four years

- Having stability of a great coaching staff blending new talented coaches with seasoned veterans

- Confidence in making in-game successful adjustments and always respecting your oponents

- Preparation is a top priority

The success of program attracts the talent and the 15 week season allows younger players more time
to develop and make a contribution. Graduation becomes the "next man up" approach and all this plus
more over the last 25 plus years. :)

K & J's Dad,

Once all the celebrations are completed, it is time for returning player's analysis for 2018.

In the meantime, GO RAIDERS. We never take it for granted, we just look toward the next opportunity to
make it happen again.

Congrats to all the seniors, you should be proud! :)

Well Done Raiders, Great effort by all. I believed after seeing the first few games in September that this team could
win it all and you did! :)

Small point. I'm sure I'll get jumped on for this but I don't really care.
I know the players decide on what uniforms to wear. However; our colors are purple and white. Why wear the black on black combination? I see 3 great choices: all purple, purple jerseys or purple pants. Apparently UMHB is wearing their home yellow jerseys so Mount has considerably choices.
Let!s emphasize the purple. Spare me that the all black is more intimidating. We're playing UMHB, not Wilmington. They won't care what we wear.
The Mount Union games are played amidst a sea of purple in the stands: purple hats, purple coats, purple blankets, even purple seat cushions. Would love to have seen the players display the color for which we are most often identified.
If you think otherwise, that's fine. But that's my opinion!
Go get 'em Raiders!

The White Jerseys with purple pants they wore against UWO are a great look and my favorite away uniform! :)

The UWO QB is definitely a great choice for the Gagliardi, even if he does not win.  The bone marrow transplant story that was aired at halftime was touching and made you a fan. This guy is a true All-American on and off the field. He has my deepest respect and admiration. His parents are, I am sure, proud and have raised a great son.

raiderpa,

Well said,  Totally agree! :)

Many good points raised for the Mount Union UW-Oshkosh match-up, but I differ some with my knowledgeable
colleagues.

- Not seeing the Hansen Ratings, Mount should be the favorite

- the game will test which defense creates a few turnovers ( I do not see many either way)

- despite the Raider's big play results, they still have almost (2) 1,000 yard rushers.

- The Raider O line has only given up 2 sacks in the playoffs, while not the best in Mount's history, certainly
  one of the better ones.

- UWO is a solid team, but do they have the speed needed to keep up, IMHO only Mary Hardin Baylor matches
  the Raiders in that area.

- If you look closely at the stats, they clearly show a top offense ( 1st in Scoring) against a top UWO defense, but
  it is the other categories that give the Raiders an edge.

- We could see both Mount QB's playing in this one

- It will be an exciting game and as someone pointed out, 3 of the 4 semi- finalists can win it all

It will be interesting to see if Mount can do anything well enough to win. I'll keep these old fingers crossed.

I do not understand your comment, sounds like you believe the Raiders would be lucky to win. Do not see it that way.

The Raiders won.

A few thoughts on the game:

- While the game was hard hitting and clean, the officials were horrible, no penalties on CWRU all day, even when they
   were holding on several occasions, and off side when Mount was driving for a score.

- The CWRU  2nd touchdown was not a touchdown. We all saw it live and the replay. The receiver had no feet in the back
   of the End Zone.

- Mount's play calling was very questionable in the red zone, I was shaking my head wondering why

- CWRU was a solid team and played tough despite the turnovers

On another note, if the Raiders win this Saturday and UW- Oshkosh does, why would the NCAA give them the home game.
To me playing one less game does not give them the home field despite schedule comparisons, Just my opinion!

OWU  hosts because they they went further last year than Mount did.   

HScoach.,

Did not realize that the carry-over from the prior season was more important than this season. Has that always been the practice or could the NCAA award home field to the team with most wins? :-\
