Luv:

Who is backing up Dustin Johnson this year?  In the past they could go to a Shai Warsaw type.  Does the backup QB have any experience? 

I also expect another huge year for Leroy Satchel.  The Gulls have to make it to the playoffs and get over the hump and get a post season win.

Lagrange should be an easy place for recruiting.  They have no competing schools (in D3) close to them.  The local high school has won the past 2-3 state championship within their class.  Also, before moving up in division II, West GA. won the D3 title back in 82 and they are geographically similar.  Lots of real good local boys that can play football should be interested in this GA/AL border school.  Eventually, they will be a force in the South region!

I believe at this point it is Travis Peters out of McDonough, though I am not entirely sure yet. No backup QB got significant playing time last season really.

I agree with you about the getting the playoff win this season, or nobody will take them seriously anymore when they become a choke playoff team.

I noticed that the Gulls are playing a 1-AA team in St. Peters (NJ).  Additionally, the Peacocks has a preseason All-American at RB.  Since the game is at Salisbury, I hope the Gulls pull it out, however, do you think a lost to a 1-AA team will affect their playoff chances if they only have one loss to another D3 squad?

St. Peter's is I-AA non-scholarship. If Salisbury loses to them they are in a world of hurt. St. Peter's only beat Hartwick, one of the worst teams in D-III, 19-9 last year.

Pat:

Thanks for the input.  I live in North Jerssey and wasn't even aware St. Peters had a foorball team until I saw them on Salisbury's schedule.

I'm looking forward to the Salisbury, CNU game as well as the Widener, Montclair, and Wesley games.

St. Peters used to have a hard time beating NJCU back when they were JCSC and still had football.

Knightstalker:

Thanks for the encouraging info on St. Peters.  Have you heard from Ira Thor lately? 

Hopefully Lincoln will get another "crack" at the Gothic Knights in Basketball, but that subject belongs on another board.      8)

Travis Peters started a couple of games (maybe 3?) for Salisbury last year.  Dustin Johnson hurt his knee in the Methodist game and was out for awhile.  I know Travis started and played the whole game against Greensboro last year.

Travis Peters started 3 games last year and played in 9 of the 11.  Salisbury always plays more than one QB

I believe Wesley will win the conference.  With their academic standards they have a distinct advantage.
