In 2011, UWW won the game 13-10. Mount gave a away a touchdown with a fumble on the 5 their yard line.
For 2013, what is the same is that UWW has a huge OL, like NC and Wesley, but a better defense. Winning the LOS is obviously
a key factor for this game but not the only one. Wesley's front defensive 7 were big and fast and did limit K. Burke,
but the Raiders also scored 62 points despite that. An intangible for this game is the fact that this Raider team,
despite being young is well battle tested and does not give up especially their leader. IMHO, the game
could be like the many MTU/UWW games, close with the winning margin not more than 10 pts
or given the favorable weather a higher scoring contest.
Hopefully, ESPN will have decent announcers!
The turnover difference sure does seem to be the key factor in the previous Stagg matchups between these two programs. That's partly what makes this game so interesting is we really don't know what UWW offense will be on display. The ball control, very conservative O seen vs UMHB or the aggressive O seen vs Linfield (for 2 quarters). I think we know what the Mt O will display.
I am a bit surprised that people think of UWW as "big" this year. I haven't compared rosters but I don't see the UWW D line as big at all, while the O line may be a bit below average O line size at UWW.
I do hope the announcers deliver the broadcast with energy and enthusiasm.
I know people rip Pam W from the 2007 game- but I personally feel she and her broadcast partner at least brought life to the game.
are you insinuating that D3 posters are just using the stereotypes of UWW being huge and Mount being quick, without using facts? Noooo. Everyone knows that UWW is huge on the lines, almost pro sized and Mount just can't match up.
These are incredibly different teams from a couple of years ago, the arm chair QB's of D3 should recognize that. Hell, had Burke replaced the will not be named Mount QB in the second half of 2011, who knows what would have happened.
Skunks knows that I have no problem with him, actually the opposite. If you feel the need to "slice me up, chew me up and spit me out" please go ahead. UWW got lucky that their run coincided with the worst 3+ years of QB play at Mount in 20 years. UWW had good teams but I don't think that there could be one Mount fan that would argue Seaman/Piloto were even decent Mount QB's. 2011 is the perfect example, the poor QB play is the difference between UWW scoring enough to win. If only we could argue about the 2012 Stagg, but your team lost a few too many games.
I really feel bad that if I remind you of a kid you beat up in high school. I'm sure that was many years ago for you, but it does not surprise me that you want to relive your "glory days." What a tough guy. But I'm sure that if you met me, you wouldn't think I was a little kid that you beat up 20 years ago.
Sounds good, I'll be certain to tell UWW's athletic department to insert astricts next to those championships. I'm interested to hear your excuses about 2007. Did Garcon get caught looking a head to the NFL? Too many miles on the tires for Kmic? Defense had too many shutouts during the regular season so they didn't take UWW seriously?
Also, UWW won the Stagg Bowl in 2010 with its back-up QB. While Coppage had a bad ankle in the 2011 game.
If Mount Union doesn't win the Stagg Bowl, then there must be something wrong with them...nevermind the team they're playing against. Right? (I'm beginning to sound like retagent
