With that being said, I'll just leave this here....

UST's Josh Parks has torched every defense he's faced this season, including SJU's. Averaging nearly 10 yards per carry! However against a WIAC school, 2-win UWEC, he was held to 67 yards on 17 carries (3.9 per). Not sure what that means, just interesting.

I dunno, 02. Parks was about the only thing the Blugolds "stopped" that day. They gained 537 yards and it was 35-0 at halftime.

In looking for further common denominators between UWW and UST/SJU, I may be giving Tommy more credit than they deserve for the C-Moor win (46-7) relative to UWW's (24-6). Statistically similar games, despite what score suggests to be a significantly more dominant outcome vs same opponent.

I think DubDub gets derailed by Johnny or Tommy. This isn't the WIAC's year, IMO, on the national stage.

I have not seen either the Johnny or Tommy play, so I admit my complete bias. That said, I'll take UWW's defense and somewhat vanilla offense vs any team that gives up the yardage and turnovers those two did.

I do agree in general the WIAC seems down this year. UWW is doing what it should be doing, giving up only 7 points in its first 3 WIAC games.

Having seen both (all three) play, here's my take. In good weather the Johnnies will be formidable. In normal late November/early December weather, the less than potent Johnnie running game is likely to hurt them. The Tommies would present a tougher matchup in that scenario due to their excellent running game..

The offensive yardage in that game was not indicative of both team's defensive capabilities. It was just one of those odd games where; A) the Johnnies gave up a few BIG run plays. B)The Johnnies tailored an offense for the consttant blitz defense of the Tommies, and Erdman had a spectacular game, and Gillach torched the defense with his prowess. If they played again, it might be a 21 - 17 type game. Look at their overall performance, and not just one weird game.


Interested to see how SJU's and UST's defense perform against another elite program. Unfortunately, they won't see one again till the playoffs. So we won't know if this was an anomaly as retagent suggests, or if emma has a point.

It means he only played in the first half and never popped a long run.

NJBalla35.....indeed the move to Kean Un. by Adam H. Is most interesting in many ways.  Adamís bio has him being the HBC at STevens Tech awhile back.  He will be facing another Amherst alum at TCNJ...another school in Kean Un.ís conference.  On top of that, this seasonís schedule has Kean playing in Amherstís season opening tournament. 
The story of Adam moving from W&L back to NE was for personal/family reasons.  His wife would be closer to her family and has a nice job at nearby Deerfield Academy.   This new job at Kean University is another story yet to be told, if ever, IMO.

Expecting to be "home" part of Nov, all December...  no, Mo Bap was never SLIAC ... but if Denny McK  sees this, he could give you some real history... I believe (though may have it wrong) that his dad coached Mo Bap, left to start the program at Fontbonne, the same year the SLIAC came into being...1990

Ah, OK.

Do make sure you pencil in the Principia or Fontbonne games at Washington University.

Meanwhile Colby is on the board late in the first half hosting UMB... 1-0 Mules.

Great transition Bobcat and sorely needed. Interesting how Colby is able to provide such great financial assistance and is also able to score first today.

Have not got to see as many games this year in person or in video. All of the usual suspects are in the top 10. I saw UT-Dallas tied Hardin-Simmons and stayed undefeated. I know they recruit the Chicago area and would be interested on hearing anything on them.

I am going to pick my sleeper for the tournament in CNU, if you can call a team ranked in the top 20 a sleeper. Their season was tore up by weather conditions and I don't have an accurate read on their season, but in limited watching they looked a constant threat on offense. 

I can't figure out the CCIW, Wheaton keeps winning, but seems to have trouble finishing. IWU is solid, but teams like North Central keep disappointing as they are in the heart of prime soccer area in the western suburbs of Chicago and still are not making a breakthrough in to being a contender. 

UAA is always brutal, I need to watch a Wash U. game, as it sounds like they have been the most consistent top 10 team all season.  I  watched video of Emory and they just look like they get sloppy at times with passing and concentration. I have not seen enough, but U. of Chicago does not seem yet to have matched the quality of last year's team.

Thomas Emerson Wheaton sounds like someone from Ye Olde New England Towne

Wild start to the game at Comerica tonite.  After two innings, the Tigers led the Royals 9-5! :o  (After that the game got downright routine - Tigers won 11-8.)

"Game scores" (an MLB.com invention?), where starting pitchers begin at 40 and go up or down from there (haven't investigated the specific rules)

http://m.mlb.com/glossary/advanced-stats/game-score


had Boyd at 10 (which is horrid) and Lopez at -9 (which I can't ever recall a negative score).
