So sorry gang. Mr. Ypsi has volunteered to take us the rest of the way, which is a tremendous help. Have gotten absolutely piled on at work right at the end of my football season. Trying to launch a new news set and get all our football inventory done has made for a total nightmare. I've gone almost 3 weeks without even making a post, which I'm not sure has even happened since I joined this message board. So, from here until the end of the season, send your ballots to him. Hopefully I'll be back in all my glory next year.

Also, in hastily trying to sort through all my messages to get this thing up as quickly as I could, I accidentally deleted Usee's poll from this week, so we're out of 70 total. I'm just making a total mess of this thing. Here's the Week 9 Fan Poll.



1. Mount Union         70 pts (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)
2. Wabash                61 pts (2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3)
3. John Carroll          58 pts (2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3)
4. Wheaton               48 pts (4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5)
5. Witt                      43 pts (4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5)
6. North Central        35 pts (6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6)
7. Chicago                21 pts (7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9)
8. Franklin                14 pts (7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9)
9. Heidelberg            11 pts (7, 8, 8, 10, -, -, -)
10. Trine                    7 pts (9, 9, 9, 10, -, -, -)

ARV
DePauw                     5 pts (10, 10, 10, 10, 10, -, -, -)
Adrian                       2 pts (9, -, -, -, -, -, -)

The North Region Fan Poll is voted on by Mr. Ypsi, Li'l Giant, and smedindy, NCF, FCGrizzliesGrad, wally_wabash, USee (whose ballot is not seen here, sorry!), and myself.

Guys,

Sorry but I have to comment on some of the recent "DePauw is back" remarks.  They are improved I will give them that but let's relax a little bit with the "if DePauw wins the Bell"

I said it was a big if. I don't know how I can hedge that any more than I did.  Or are you just doing your disgruntled thing right now?

I'm with bashbro on Wooster. I think Witt handles this fairly easily.

The Bell game may have implications anyway because of 3 way tie potential. Bash beat Witt. Witt beat DePauw. Assuming the concerned parties all win out the rest of the way, you've got all 3 with 1 loss at the top if DePauw wins the Bell.

I do realize that DePauw winning the Bell is a pretty large if at this point. As my Dad used to say, if a frog had wings, he wouldn't have to bump his ass on the ground all the time.

That would make for a pretty interesting Pool C conversation, too. Somebody gets the A and the other 2 would be sitting at 9-1.

You guys get OWU on Saturday which should make more slightly better viewing.   :)

Even better. Already beat Kenyon. Also, in related news, I can't read a schedule.

I'll get my first look at DePauw this weekend vs Kenyon. Excited to finally get down to see them.

On top of all of that, the dude who accounts for the most offense in Division III is a Fightin' Enginner (are they still Fightin'?  were they ever Fightin'?). 

If you ask the former voice of the Engineers, John Sherman, yes to both questions. He's now an Assistant AD at Indiana State. Used to have a good time with that guy at the SCAC basketball and baseball tourneys back in my WGRE days.

For those who voted for DePauw. Who have they beat or what have they done that would make them a 10 spot? I don't know a whole lot about D3 outside the NCAC, but, it seems like a little bit of a stretch that they would beat Franklin and didn't Ohio Northern hang pretty close with Heidelberg even though the score was like 100 to 90 or something like that. Just curious.
GO BASH!!!!

Franklin had a really bad result against a bad football team on Saturday. That was kinda the final straw with me for them. And I'm the guy that always ranks Franklin higher than everybody else. If Franklin beats Manchester by 1, they aren't beating DePauw. Good Franklin beats DePauw, but we don't see much of good Franklin anymore.

ONU has two losses to two teams higher in the poll. DePauw has one loss to one team higher in the poll. Therefore, I don't think I'm reaching by saying DePauw should be ranked ahead.

Good to see my alma mater back in the poll. It's been quite a long time.

One thing to watch for here - AND in "B" land, is that cancelled game between Chicago and Pacific. That may benefit Chicago, since I don't know how much Pacific would help them. They may win just two games this year (Lewis & Clark and rookie George Fox).

Wesley is putting the Pool B to bed this weekend, yes?  When they beat Louisiana College on Saturday, they finish their D-III schedule at 5-0.  I'm not sure anybody can take that playoff spot from Wesley.

Oh, my sweet Wesley...

Hey guys.

I would say it's a case of penalizing for a loss, but that was last week. I openly admit that I forgot about IWU in my ballot. Neglected to rank them at all on accident.

Now, I get the chance to see all the ballots. One of you said you were going in to hiding, which I might recommend. But, there were several of the ballots that I just didn't get. I'm typically with the majority most of the way down the ballot. But, a couple of those outliers (Witt voted as an 8, NC voted as a 3, Bash as a 5, Franklin just being out altogether, just to name a few) that puzzled me.

I was:
Mount
Bash
JCU
Witt
NC
Wheaton
Franklin
Adrian
RHIT
Chicago

It's not too much of a stretch to think Franklin would win over IWU in a rematch.

I would counter this argument by saying it's less of a stretch that IWU would win a second time because they've already proven that they can.
