The end of season rankings are a complete joke.  I get that Wartburg made it to the Sweet 16, but there is no way they were the 18th best team in the country.  Not trying to take anything away from Wartburg by any means, but they, like other teams, (i.e. Augustana, Williams) got hot at the right time of the year. 

On another note, I too heard about the Kedrowski kid.  Also heard they got Mueller (sp?) from Prince of Peace.  Also sounds like the Prairie duo of Drahos and Eilers have committed to Wartburg and Coe.  I had a chance to see the both play several times this year and I believe both have a BRIGHT future in this league. 

Any idea what others are bringing in?  Haven't heard or seen much on any of the others from in-state.  Don't follow the recruiting trail outside of Iowa all that often.

UNI releases Men's BB schedule and Nov. 15, hosting Wartburg. 3 new starts for Wartburg this year.  ::)
Aaron Kampman on Coach Ed Thomas
I believe his greatest legacy comes not in how many football games he won or lost but in the fact that he was a committed follower of Jesus Christ.

It's good to see Schuring get back to Luther. 

Just about a month away from the start of the season.  As always, it will be an exciting IIAC.  I hope Wartburg’s deep NCAA tournament run brings a little national attention to the league.  Loras and NWU were both worthy of getting in last year.  Maybe this is the year the IIAC finally gets a little recognition as one of the best leagues in the country. 

My WAY to early predictions.

NWU

Projection: 13-3
Key Returners: Everyone
Key Losses: None

Wartburg

Key Returners: DiCanio, George, Dacy-Seijo
Key Losses: Quinn, VanWambeke, Mathis

Coe
Last Year: 6-10

Projection: 8-8
Key Returners: Amsbaugh
Key Losses: Singleton, Thompson, Turner, Dafney

BV
Last Year: 10-6

Your projections show the depth of the league.  You have Dubuque, Central, and Luther missing the conference tourney, and they are 3 teams that have recently won the conference title.

Which is why I just can't comprehend why the league has not gotten the respect on a national stage.  These teams beat up on each other night in and night out, and proved that they can compete with teams from the WIAC and CCIW this past year.  Really looking forward to this season...someone will surprise me, that, I can assure you.

If you Iowa boys don't mind a little info from an IL guy.........

Loras is getting a great 6'6" 3 point shooter - Rowan McGowan
Dubuque is getting two very solid all around 6'5" players - Pete Ragen & Cole Navigato.

I saw all 3 play several times. McGowan is just a plain ice water in his veins shooter. The bigger the need for a three pointer the more likely he is to make it.

Ragen can play, probably in this order, the 3, 2, or 1. Not a huge scorer or rebounder, but above average in both, and maybe the best ballhandler over 6'3" I saw last year.
Navigato is both a scorer and rebounder. He will get lots of points or lots of rebounds almost every game. About every 3-4 games he will get lots of both. And he plays defense too.

There ain't no good guys, there ain't no bad guys-----there's only you and me, and we just disagree.

So who's the hunter 🐅, ........ and who's the game 🐃? (Scandal)

I've heard the Ragen name, don't know much about Navigato.  Sounds like UD has added some much needed length.

The news today of all the corruption going on at the D1 level of NCAA basketball has me even more happy to follow D3 basketball and the IIAC.

I was telling this to my former teammates today. I enjoy watching D1 but I love D3 and truly believe it this purest form of college athletics. #WhyD3
