Presentation opens with Lawrence on Sept. 2. Last year they played two D-III opponents, beating Lawrence 17-10 and Finlandia 74-0. Not a challenge for SJU, but it's a game.

Better than Buena Vista?

I'd say no. But BVU has a new coach and so they'll be harder to predict next year. But being on par with Lawrence suggests they won't be on par with BVU.
On the bright side, there will be beer at the pre-game festivities  :-\

(Don't know where to post this, but I'll do it here.)  Read a great line today (referencing the indefinitely postponed vote on Trumpcare) - they didn't suffer a defeat; they had an 'alternative victory'.  I can hardly wait 'til this reaches sports: can you envision Grey Giovanine saying 'We didn't lose the title game; we had an alternative victory'! :o ;D

An off-season hypothetical for your discussion pleasure: had Duncan Robinson not transferred to Michigan, he would have been a senior at Williams this year.  Would Joey Flannery have still been national POY, or would it more likely have been DR?

I was unaware of Presentation College, but on paper it looks like a good fit for SJU. UST has academically and athletically outgrown SJU over the past couple of decades. I’m sure the Johnnies have been looking for a new rival to fill the void. Presentation College is small, rural, and Catholic. They appear to be very “flexible” on academic requirements. In short, aside from being coed, the place looks like an SJU clone...a perfect candidate to build a new rivalry.

Dinner break. NCF has a few errands to run. She'll post later this evening.

General Division III issues / Re: Salem, Virginia

FYI - the decisions have been made by the committees. I was told it was wrapped up for almost all the committees earlier this month. Just waiting for the April 18th announcement. I believe the NCAA spends that time making sure there aren't any issues that might surprise people. And I believe, without looking it up, that the announcement might be in conjunction with DIII Week? A bit of an ad lib from the original plan to have this out in late October or early November like last time.

Well, I believe we can blame North Carolina HB2 for that.
