Great feature article:

Coury twins making football magic for Carnegie Mellon

https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/highschoolsports/2021/11/coury-twins-making-football-magic-for-carnegie-mellon.html

Funny story about this.  My parents still reside in eastern PA, where I grew up, but they came out for the last 2 games since the Tartans were having a good year, it's Coach Lackner's last season, and they've got a bunch of grandkids to visit with me & my brother both living in the Pittsburgh area. 

Anyways, my dad turns to me partway into the W&J game and says "Man, that guy Coury is all over the place" after they announced yet another tackle by one of the Coury brothers.  Had to laugh & say "Well, dad, there's two of them!"

Well, this is a bummer.

Not at all how we wanted to advance.  Feel awful for those kids that worked so hard to get to the tournament and especially for the Head Coach that is retiring. Wishing the best to Tartan nation on recovery.

Just glad that I wasn't already on the road/plane to NCC.  Shame for everyone all around, on both sides really...not that I doubt NCC would have advanced, but you know, you want to play the games!  Now NCC has to just sit on their hands & try to bring energy next weekend...when your team is rolling, it's nice to keep playing the games, so I'm bummed for your guys as well.  It's still a lost chance to suit up and play.

Dry humor from a friend/teammate of mine: "On a positive note, we're still the best team in CMU history" [referring to our 2006 team]

Bummer, that's a tough break. Even if a W wasn't likely, the playoffs is a unique experience, and you want to see how you measure up.

At the very least they can get some mileage out of "we would have won the title if we'd have played".
You win! You always do!

Ice Bear sending his condolences to the Tartans on a very tough break. Ice says congratulations on a great ****ing season. This was a season to be proud of to say the least!

Really sorry this game didn't happen.  Feel for the CM seniors.  Wishing you all a speedy recovery and safe travels.

I feel especially bad for the Tartans considering they had 99% vaccination rate on campus. They did their best to prevent this type of situation. CMU could probably have reasonably just quarantined the positive students and let the rest of the team participate, but I appreciate their commitment to safety.

I also wonder if there's any way the PAC could have sent an alternative team if they'd had sooner notice? I guess that wouldn't be fair either, now I just feel bad for W&J and Westminster who were in that bottleneck for first place.

Reaching out from Naperville to congratulate the Tartans on their conference title and well-earned tournament berth.  While we missed seeing the young men on the field today, their health and safety trumps all.  Here’s to a speedy recovery and seeing you back in the playoffs in 2022. 

Perhaps the NCAA will pair us up again in the tournament in the future, or, better yet, our ADs will find a way to schedule a regular season Home and Away series between our institutions.  If that happens, you will surely find me in the visitors stands in Pittsburgh.

I am a normal poster on the D2 Message board and saw this post, wanted to know if any W&J posters had any info on this rumor?  I tried doing a screen shot and uploading but the file was too big it says....

According to my sources a very interesting name is tied to the Clarion job. His father is in the hall of fame there and his younger brother is the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles

Be interesting to see what happens. Mike has never had a losing season as a head coach, so this would be quite a change if it were to happen. I’m a big fan of Mike and it would be a shame to lose him, but perhaps he is looking for a new challenge. He has been mentioned in the past as a candidate for a division 2 job, but it didn’t happen.
