General football / Re: Pool C 2018
« on: Yesterday at 09:33:37 pm »
Now that we’re this far into the season, how does everyone think pool C will shape up this year?

As of today:
1. Wesley/Salisbury winner
2. St. Thomas/Bethel winner
3. Marietta/John Carroll winner
4. HSU/Texas Lutheran winner
5. Between: UWO, Linfield, W&J*, Frostburg St*, Salisbury*, Wittenberg*, Central*
       *If they don't win their conference and end season as a one loss team.

(No particular order)
CWRU is on my radar, too.

Right now, I think that HSU will go to Whitworth and CMS will come to UMHB... but who knows.

Muhlenberg can do the rest of D-3 a favor by giving JHU its 2nd loss in 2 weeks.

I am looking for an update of this at the end of the season.


The SCIAC is a mess.  Four teams with 1 loss or less (undefeated CMS).

What is the tie-breaker for a 3-way tie?

Somehow we ended up with one more ORV than last week.  I think we've set a new highwater mark for number of teams receiving votes in the NRFP. 

2018 Week 6 NRFP:

The NRFP is voted on by: Captain_Joe08, CollegeGolf18, Dr. Acula, FCGrizzliesGrad, HOPEful, Li'l Giant, Mr Ypsi, NCF,  smedindy, thunderdog, USee, and wally wabash.

Interesting contrast - SRFP had only 11 teams receive votes this week.  Of course we only have five participants.
I think that the NRFP was relatively homogenous.  If you drop the teams that only appeared on 1 ballot (or rather did not appear on any of the other 11 ballots), then you are down to 12 teams.  The questionable ballot that I see is Albion as a #8. Respectfully, I have real problems giving the MIAA 2 teams on the Region Fan Poll.

What A Game!  W&J scores in the last minute to beat Geneva 50-43!

Thomas More just saw its Pool B chances evaporate. The Saints miss a 34yd FG wide right with 2:08 left.

Muhlenberg marches down the field and converts a 20 yd FG at the buzzer to win 34-31.  If Muhlenberg runs the table, they are in good position maybe to host a two games, depending on the rest of the season in the Presidents AC.

Ok.. so I have a large spreadsheet with all schedules in D3, can download results on a daily basis during the season.. assures I have all results, can generate some special data, help out D3hoops once in a while... this is always a fun time of year because I have most of the schedules, and it's interesting to see who the last schools to post their schedules on their site are..

So we're a week into Octobber, and of 429 D3 schools, here are the 13 that have not yet posted their schedules on their sites... D3hoops my have schedules posted, but they have likely been amassed from opponents schedules, or were sent to D3hoops without being posted on the schools sites..

Here are the 13 bad boys.. as Dave would like to say, just too many other priorities... to which hopefan respectfully quotes.. ALLOW ME TO RETORT!!!

New Rochelle
Wheaton Mass


Oct 8.....Gallaudet says... Get me off that Bad Boy list, gets their schedule posted... now we're down to 12... who will be last?

I will say... Gallaudet's SID is a VERY busy man. Remember, he is the men's national committee chair this year (and probably next) ... on top of a lot of other responsibilities.
Send him an Applaud!  +1!

Thomas More beat Platteville. ETBU didn't. That is enough to earn a place on any ballot ahead of ETBU.

Would be interested to know if the voter that has HSU at 3 this week is the same one who had them there the first few weeks and then changed Week 5.
I will protect the anonymity of the voters, but last weekend, W&J had a big game against CWRU and won by 8.

HSU had a big conference game against UMHB and was shutout, for the first time since 1993, according to CowboyAlum261, before these players were born!

I would wonder.. if Whitworth takes the NWC and HSU gets a pool C.. perhaps that could be their first match?
It would work for me.

I think that if we had a poll among the HSU fans, all considering that the Stagg Bowl 2018 will be in the north Houston suburb of Shenandoah, would Cowboy fans opt for being in the opposite bracket from UMHB with the very remote chance of a rematch, or maybe getting 1 playoff game (road or home) before the rematch with The CRU?

Being an ASC fan, if HSU earns the Pool C bid, I would hope that the NCAA would seed HSU in the opposite bracket.
