Did anyone catch the Loras v St Thomas game tonight? I saw Loras lost, did they play well?

It was 4-2, not 2-1. St Thomas is up next today at 1 pm.

Yikes, my bad. LOL.

Loras beat Cal Lutheran 2-1 in the first round. Way to rep the IIAC! Go Loras!

I am impressed with Loras. Ever since their loss to NWU, they have come alive. They crushed St. Scholastica today 3-0!

Loras is starting to look like I thought they would at the beginning of the season.  They put a lot of skill on the field, with perhaps more individual skill top to bottom than I've seen from their top 18 players in the last 9 years of watching.  They are starting to look like a more cohesive group, too, and are playing with confidence.  Obviously, given their miscues in the first half of the season, they have to win the conference tournament to get to NCAAs but if that happens they could be dangerous in November as they are not the same team they were at the start of the season.

I have to agree with you. I watched the game last night from online, and Loras looked a lot better. I think Loras could be a very dangerous team in November. Do you think if Loras wins the conference, Simpson or Luther could get an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament?

Maybe I doubted Loras a little bit. They came out strong and beat UW-Whitewater 3-0 last night. Big win for the Duhawks tonight!

Loras won 3-2 @ Wartburg

Central won 2-1 over BVU
Dubuque won 3-0 over NWU
Luther won 5-1 over Coe

Not sure how the conference standings will end up, and not sure the conference standings will matter once the conference tourney starts. 

Luther 5-1-0  Central, @ Dubuque
Simpson 4-2-0  Wartburg, @ Coe
Loras  4-2-0  Coe, @ Central
NWU  4-3-0  BVU
Dubuque 3-2-1  @ BVU, Luther
Wartburg 3-3-1  @ Simpson
Central  3-3-0  @ Luther, Loras
BVU  1-5-0  Dubuque, @ NWU
Coe  0-6-0  @ Loras, Simpson

That was a big win for Dubuque tonight. This could potentially shake up the standings in the IIAC as far as conference playoff seedings will go. It will most certainly be an interesting regular season finish.

 :o NWU moves into third place?? Loras takes down Simpson, and looks to be back on track! Wartburg drops another big game. Luther is now in first!

This has become one wild and wacky season in the IIAC.

Here are my predictions for the remaining games for each team in the IIAC:

Luther will win out on the rest of their season. Remaining Opponents: Coe, Central, and Dubuque. Final record: 11-4-3 (7-1-0).

Simpson should still be in good shape, and should win their last two games. Remaining Opponents: Wartburg and Coe. Final Record: 15-2-1 (6-2).

Nebraska Wesleyan has come out of nowhere this season, and should win out. Remaining Opponents: Dubuque and Buena Vista. Final Record: 11-5-1 (6-2).

Loras got off to a sluggish start, and it's important they win their remaining IIAC games. Remaining Opponents: Wartburg, UW-Whitewater, Coe, St. Scholastica, and Central. Final Record: 10-7 (6-2).

Wartburg has struggled to finish against quality competition, and will continue to do so down the stretch. Remaining Opponents: Loras, Simpson, and UW-Platteville. Final Record: 8-6-3 (3-4-1).

Dubuque imagined a better season this year but they have been too inconsistent. They should win one of their last three remaining IIAC games. Remaining Oppenents: Nebraska Wesleyan, Buena Vista, and Luther. Final Record: 7-7-2 (3-4-1).

Central blew a big opportunity against NWU to turn around their season, and now two of their remaining opponents are some of the best teams in the IIAC. Remaining Opponents: Buena Vista, Luther, and Loras. Final Record: 10-6 (3-5).

Buena Vista picked up their first IIAC win of the season against Coe, but they have three tough games to finish out the year. Remaining Opponents: Central, Dubuque, and Nebraska Wesleyan. Final Record: 4-13-1 (1-7).

Coe is on the losing end once again this year, and it's been a tough season but they can still salvage one win at the end of the year against Cornell. Remaining Opponents: Luther, Loras, Simpson, and Cornell. Final Record: 4-13 (0-8).

Does any disagree? Let me know your thoughts.
