The E&H coach is a HSC man and he has done an assume job in a very short period of time. E&H was absolutely awful when he arrived

What we really needed was the ODAC to only pick up SVa, leave Ferrum in the USAC, and the USAC and ODAC to partner for one OOC game per year. That then only leaves 2 more for teams to find. Why the ODAC first took Ferrum and then took SVa is still a complete and utter mystery to me.

I agree. Other than a couple outliers in Huntingdon and LaGrange, Ferrum was in a pretty ideal spot for the USAC, for football at least.

If anyone finds the E&H schedule, let me know. I'm interested to see if we're on their schedule this year after hearing we weren't going to be the last few years. Maryville is home vs. Centre next year for what I'm assuming was the Hanover spot.  Having Berry and Centre the few couple weeks of the season are going to be tough. Hoping we bounce back from this 5-5 season.
Ferrum's gone by Brevard takes that game. Schedule should be wrapped up for MC if E&H is still a go.

Concordia University in St. Paul did it a few years back, 15/20? It worked out pretty well for them. I knew their AD at the time of the transition. He told me they did it because they would be the only D2 school in the twin cities metro area. He saw their program as a real niche option for student-athletes. Outside of the U of M, they would be and still are the only scholarship school in the metro. They will definitely take some athletes from UWW and other's in the area but probably not enough to really feel any pain. I know what they will do, as does Concordia, if they really want somebody they get them to apply for all of the financial aid (Fed., State, grant programs) and then provide the remainder in Athletic scholarship. This essentially give the athlete a "free ride" They can be pretty crafty with their offers.

I was joking, hence all the... ;D :D :) :P :-*

I know you were. I responded the way that I did because I wasn't sure that you had read all of the back-and-forth between D-Mac and I (with the occasional interjection from Bob) last week. I can't remember the last time that you posted on CCIW Chat, so I wasn't really sure if you were keeping up with this room in particular, especially since it scrolls so quickly. In other words, I took your joke as an invitation to lay out the 411 of the debate. I apologize if this was stuff that you had already read.

I actually find it amusing how worked up some of the posters get in this board over the lack of respect in the rankings for their teams.

Well, we're a pretty passionate bunch, after all. ;) But, in my case, this was not about me getting worked up over a lack of respect in the rankings for my team. Illinois Wesleyan is most definitely not my team. Nor is this a case of me promoting the CCIW at large by promoting one of its teams, because, after all, Augustana is just as much a part of the CCIW as is Illinois Wesleyan, and this conversation has been as much about Augustana not living up to being the preseason #2 as it has been about Illinois Wesleyan deserving more love from the voters. For me, this is about process, specifically the methodology of the d3hoops.com poll. As I said last week, and as Pat will attest, I've been harping on the issue of the preseason poll bleeding into the in-season polls and compromising their usefulness for the better part of twenty years now. I'm sure that he's sick of me bringing it up, which is why I was so pleased that this time it was izzy and Bob who brought it up.  :D

With Huntingdon having played H-SC in the past I wouldn't have minded that series being renewed. That week 3 would have fit nicely too with HC looking for a third non-conference game now. It would be fun if we could match up with someone in the ODAC for that third game.

With the ODAC adding SVa in 2019, H-SC probably needed a one off game, not a home and home. I'd imagine that 3rd OOC for the ODAC schools this year is going to be full of NNA again, as it is a tough spot to fill if you weren't using a backside of a home and home from 2017. I'm curious who W&L will have filling that hole since the CMS series ended last year and I'm pretty sure Wash U was a one and done since they join the CCIW and have a schedule up on their website.

I know W&L has Dickinson and I'm assuming Sewanee on the schedule. That third spot will be interesting.
I forgot about SVa. Looks like we may be going to far off places for that third game for the near future. Not a lot of options; Wisconsin, Michigan, Thomas More(until they figure out where they're going), Northeast, West Coast? Back to the old Independent days. Anybody, anywhere.

We need more teams in D3 in the *actual* south (not PA, sorry guys).  2 teams in AL and GA, zero in SC, 3 in TN, and 2 in KY (including TMC for time being), 1 in AR is not helping our cause. VA and NC are the only ones that really enjoy having a good D3 landscape.
With that being said, has anyone heard if any NAIA or D2 schools are looking at moving?

HSC schedule is up and it is hard to believe the damn thing;

5 of 7 ODAC games on the road; 9/29 vs. E&H, 10/6 @ SU, 10/13 @ BC, 10/20 vs. GC, 10/27 @ Ferrum, 11/3 @ W&L, 11/10 vs. RMC.

ODAC should have made a clean sweep by putting the Tigers on the road 7 straight weeks.
