That's one thing about SaintsFan he never leaves a doubt of what he thinks.


Thanks for the post the other day on the basketball player. Gave you a +1. It kind of reminds us when we think we are going through some tough times that it could always worse and feel fortunate for what we have.

Congrats to Manchester winning the Mid-east region!

I second that!!!


What a conference finish. No way I thought RHIT would get swept. Congrats to both Franklin and Defiance for making the tournament.

It looks like the jinx of the regular season champion not winning the conference tournament may be coming to an end the way Manchester has been playing, but that is why they play the game.

Good Luck Grizzlies and also to Defiance dc_has_been even after this post. (Well, Defiance took the two out of three from Transy, but I am hoping you don't take two out of three from Anderson!) ;D

Franklins tough loss to RHIT yesterday with a score of 6 - 5 may have hurt their chances of making the conference tournament.

With conference playing ending this week it looks like Manchester and Anderson are in. Leaving RHIT, Transy, Defiance and Franklin battling it out for the last two spots with only 1 1/2 games separating the 3rd place to 6th place teams.

It looks like Franklin's only chance to get in would be to sweep Anderson and then would need Defiance to win two of the three games against Transy.

I like RHIT's chances of getting in by finishing conference against Earlham.

Good Luck Grizzlies this weekend.

But you got to admit compared to the last five years of posts you would have to call this year busy.

Congratulations to Franklins freshman pitcher Hayden Cleveland for breaking the schools single game strikeout record by recording 15 K's in nine innings against Mount St. Joseph this past weekend.

His 15 stikeouts broke Franklin College’s previous strikeout record of 14 posted by David Verdeyen in 2003 and matched by Andy Clark in 2008.

A little story on former Franklin College pitcher Andy Clark who had previously retired from the Frontier League this year.

My son committed to Franklin on Sunday and sent in his deposit. We can't wait to be a part of the Franklin football family! He chose the Griz over Wabash, Mount Union, and Trine. From the start, Franklin felt like the best fit. He is a wr/pr/kr/rb. With 4.5 "40", 36" vertical, 5'8" 165 lbs.

Congrats on your son's choice. Our youngest son graduated from there in 2008. We still make the trip up north to catch some of the football and baseball games. We also play in the football homecoming golf scramble every year.

Coach Leonard and coach Theobald are both great. Wish your son the best of luck in both football and his education.

Go Grizz.

However, 200 plus rushing yards a game the last three weeks may make Coach Leonard want to switch to the Wing T.  LOL

I doubt you will ever see that happen. ;D

Here is some K+ for you.

Nice to see Jonny West put together a nice game without many mistakes this week for Franklin. As Backer said, running game is still a trouble spot.

Congrats to Defiance for finally getting in the win column. Now everyone except for Earlham has a win this season (and honestly I don't see them getting one with the schedule they have left)

The way I see things, there's three teams with any hope of winning the conference.
Franklin obviously just needs to win out and the only game they should have a challenge is @ Hanover to finish.
Hanover needs to win out including their final 2 @ MSJ and vs Franklin to be in a tie with FC (and have the tiebreaker).
Rose needs to win out including this week vs MSJ and have Hanover beat Franklin to get in a 3 way tie (and I have no idea how the tiebreaker would go).

Here is the HCAC Tie-Breaker scenario:

1. Which team won in their head to head competition?

2. How the tied teams fared against next team in conference standings.  Continue down in the conference standings until the tie is broken.

3. Number of conference wins by the conference opponents you defeated.  Team whose opponents had the highest number of wins breaks the tie.

4. Number of conference wins by the conference opponents you lost to.  Team whose opponents had the highest number of wins breaks the tie.

5. Total winning percentage by non-conference opponents.

6. The team which has not gone to the NCAA Football Playoffs for the longest period of time (Big 10 Rose Bowl Rule).

7. Rankings from the AFCA Division III National Poll.

8. Blind Draw.  One lot shall be marked AQ and all others will be blank.  The draw will be conducted by the conference Commissioner and SID at the Heartland Conference Office.  The draw will be made in alphabetical order of the tied schools.  A coach or representative from each school involved may attend the drawing

Griz_Backer, KYGrizzly:

I have a question for you (and this is hypothetical, so please don't get mad at me :)): If you knew that it i.e. alchoholic beverages was prohibited, why would you wantonly/blatently disregard that rule/law even by "putting it in a cup"?  I'm sure there are many people who disagree with such rules, however, they, you, or I don't make them (the rules), but you are suggesting it is okay to ignore the policy if it were in place? ???  Just curious. :)

You bring up a good point. I guess the best answer would be "Do as they say not as I do". ;D You really know how to make a guy feel bad don't you. :-[

Shaping up to be a nice weekend for football.  From what I'm reading Earlham is a dry campus (even for tailgating).  Can anyone confirm that?

I tried doing a little research to answer the dry campus question, but came up blank.  I believe that Earlham is a Quaker institution, so whatever goes along with that may determine what goes for tailgating.  Probably best to have your special pe-game beverages in a plastic cup just to be on the safe side.  Weather still looking to be awesome for football, so it should be a great day all around.

See you Saturday!

Did they change something up at Manchester, never had any problem at the football games drinking out of the can or bottle? The only place I was asked to pour mine out of a can was at MSJ walking from the parking structure to the field even though the MSJ fans were drinking out of a keg right beside me.

Just like Griz-Backer said keeping it in a cup is the best idea, that is what got me through four years of baseball at all the schools.
