North Region football / Re: North Region Fan Poll
« Last post by Ryan Stoppable on Today at 02:11:18 am »
Sorry to interrupt the CCIW discussion (and I might be just a tad bit biased ;D), but I'm fascinated by the fact that Hope is ranked 10th while my Muskies can't even sniff a ballot. Surely a 2 point head to head loss at Hope doesn't show that much separation?

Agree with Wally and HOPEful.  Keep winning and you might make the bottom of a lot of ballots.  Being in what is generally considered to be the weakest conference in the North, you had just two chances to prove yourselves: beat Hope or lose (NO one would expect a win) respectably to Platteville - alas, you didn't do either.

Franklin and RHIT are in the same boat.  The HCAC is by general consensus the second-weakest North conference.  Neither is currently in the poll since they didn't do what they needed to do in the OOC.  At least they have each other!  The winner of this Saturday's game will almost certainly break into the poll.  Aurora, alas for you, is no Franklin or RHIT - but a win might be enough to get you votes (or even in).

Or we might lose tomorrow (today by now?) and it will all be a moot point, though I obviously hope not. ;D

In any event, thanks to all of you for indulging me with the discussion. :) Ultimately, despite my belief that we should have won the Hope game (as should any team who gains 23 more first downs and runs 58 more offensive plays than its foe), we didn't. And we needed to win the game, because with the 2 losses, even if we win out, we're going to end up getting drawn against Oshkosh or...whoever comes out of the CCIW logjam, and that is not a recipe for winning playoff games. 9-1 might have given us a chance of a slightly friendlier draw.

But I digress. We still didn't beat Hope, and have 2 losses, and therefore shouldn't be in the NRFP right now, and maybe not later either. (I don't even think calling the NACC the weakest conference in the region is controversial; how can it not be when all of the eye-popping non-conference results go against its teams?) But we should, at least, be kept in mind.

Wish the world had a little more JOHN WAYNE and a little less DR PHIL...

I don't like politics on these boards but I feel I have to comment. I couldn't disagree with you more. So you're saying we need more tough guys, more loudmouths, more bullies and less people who want to understand, to discuss and to compromise. NO

Men's soccer / Re: 2017 Season - National Perspective

Yea I remember RUC always challenged themselves with their schedule. The coach was willing to play anyone anywhere at least back between 2012-2104. Not sure if he will do it now but they do have a .569 SOS so it looks like he still challenges his team even if they are not as strong.

from 2012-2013 we had a 56 games streak that was snapped in the loss to Messiah. At home i wouldíve played any team in the country on any given day, went almost 2 years without losing at home. thatís why homefield advantage is so important come NCAA time. nothing is better than waking
up in your bed at the tournament site.

2012 was a pretty tough schedule. 2013 was fairly tough but we were just so strong that year. after Mike Ryan graduated they fell off sadly. even the lower njac teams play tougher schedule than RUN and Montclair. Kudos to Rowan this year with their schedule. thoroughly deserved

I saw Vidal listed as well. Wondering if it is like the injury Alarms had a couple years back. He was still listed, but didn't play much for a couple games. No offense to Wilmington but giving Vidal some time off this week, maybe against Musky as well, wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen. Have to hit playoffs - first - but have to hit them healthy.

Adrian's roster is up with nine freshmen and four sophomores.

http://www.adrianbulldogs.com/sports/m-baskbl/2017-18/roster

I think maybe only three players have suited up for the Bulldogs before.

Four.....I mean maybe?   Webster, Rainey and Landini were regular contributors.  Wyatt-Morris got a cup of coffee in a couple games until he had to play quite a bit the last 3 games after the bottom fell out of Adrian's roster.

One of Adrian's regular players from last year, Isiah Crofford had enrolled at Marygrove before they closed up shop.  Tough luck.


My guess is this is probably an equally or better talented team to last year, and for Adrian's sake hopefully a more disciplined one.  Stuff that was allowed to slide in previous years is not anymore.

Thanks Wildcat 11, I've never laughed at Quick Hits before.

It helped that PC set up some amusing categories to begin with.

(I'll bet I could make Frank smile - eventually.)

While Amherst Mammoths is quite the mouthful, I must say, the new logo is pretty slick.  Itís no purple cow, but I like it ...

Polar cat,  didnít get your post until II made it to Gippers.  Looking for the Lumbercat pic but not seeing any Bates pictures near the door. A good one of Lewiston football with the Alabama numbers on the helmet. But nonBates stuff.  Interesting place.  Actually ate at Fish Bones because a customer wanted to go there. Pretty good meal!  Stopped at Grittys for a beer before and gippers after.  Half priced appetizers after 10pm.   Anyways, good luck tomorrow.  Hope to meet you and Ljmbercat at the game!
