So there are obvious implications of the remaining games. The contenders have the following games remaining:

Elmhurst: vs Wheaton, @Millikin, vs. NCC

NCC: vs IWU, vs Augie, @Elmhurst

Wheaton: @Elmhurst, vs. IWU, @Carthage

Wheaton and Elmhurst control their own destiny. If either wins out, they are the AQ. Wheaton has a small chance at a Pool C if they finish 9-1 (don't count on it). So here is what I think are the scenarios for each team's playoff chances:

Elmhurst: Win out and get AQ, Beat Wheaton and lose to NCC by less than they beat Wheaton and they get the AQ. If Wheaton beats Elmhurst and loses last two games then winner of NCC/Elmhurst is AQ. No chance at Pool C

NCC: Hope Elmhurst beats Wheaton and the beat Elmhurst by more than 3. Otherwise need Wheaton to lose last 2 games and then they need to beat Elmhurst. at 8-2 better chance than Wheaton at Pool C (due to strong SOS)u

Wheaton: Win out and they are AQ. Lose to Elmhurst and they are subject to Elmhurst/NCC pt spread against their margin vs Elmhurst. If Wheaton beats Elmhurst they only need to win 1 of last two for AQ. Small chance at pool C at 9-1 (due to poor SOS relative to other candidates)

Thanks USee. Good stuff.

It seems that, for at least this weekend, birds will flock together as many Cardinalis cardinalis fans from Naperville will fly a wing position in support of their Cyanocitta cristata breatheran from Elmhurst as they attempt to repel the invading, crusading horde from Wheaton.  ???   ;)8-)   ;D

It appears doubtful that Wheaton will lose either of it's last 2 games. Therefore, in addition to winning out, including beating EC by > 3 points, NCC must hope that EC can earn a home W over WC on Sat.

Heard that IWU may have gotten together with Olivet for a scrimmage last evening. If so, does anyone have any details--starters, scoring, players missing due to injury?

Olivet (NAIA) Nazarene that is. Any details? IWU fans?

3
Anybody know anything about an Olivet-Illinois Wesleyan scrimmage?

I'm sure they probably scrimmaged Olivet Nazarene, not Olivet College.

Nazarene it was.  :)

Entirely possible, even likely. I was just asked via an e-mail if I heard anything about the results of a scrimmage between IWU and Olivet. I hadn't, so I thought I would ask the board. Seemed odd, but last year IWU traveled to Winona, MN for an exhibition, so I thought maybe. ;)

Does anyone have any word on any CCIW-related exhibitions/scrimmages prior to the start of the season?  I need a fix.

NCC SCRIMMAGES:

1. 10/29 vs. Concordia-Chicago @ 6:30

2. 11/6 vs. U of Chicago @ 7:00

Both at home in Naperville

Hard to believe, but it seems that the Wednesday, 10/29 scrimmage between NCC and Concordia-Chicago is actually AT CONCORDIA @ 6:30, ;D

The Carthage web site indicates "2014-2015 Roster." That would seem to indicate a complete roster. As of today, many rosters are what I would refer to as "partial," in that all the players are listed, but some players don't have numbers shown yet. The players that fall into this category are freshman, transfers, and other new players in the program. However, they are still listed even though the current roster is certainly not the final version. Both the North Central and IWU rosters are currently posted in this manner. Accordingly, it makes sense that if any new players were going to be a part of the team this year, they would already be listed.

Carrying this likelihood further, it would seem that most schools would be very anxious to publicize their new players and as such, would naturally make sure to include them on the various school's web site rosters as soon as possible. Lastly, official practice has begun. It's not like a school is still waiting to see if a kid is going to play or not.  ;)

The 2014-2015 Carthage roster shows no freshmen members of this season's squad. How weird is that?  :o
Bosko evidently took a vacation year from the recruiting trail.  ;)

But consider (with regard to ranking by pedigree) the possibility that:

1. Unfortunately, there probably is a poster or two who DOES rank a team or a few teams solely due to pedigree.

2. Using this criteria would seem to make it difficult for a historically middle of the pack or weaker team that is about to have their best season in many years, to receive the attention it deserves.

If anybody thinks I'm wrong, please tell me why.

Only Bosko could figure out how to start 6 guys.  ???

* Hearth started primarily in the beginning of the season when Carthage was waiting for Malcom Kelly to return to the team in December.

Game day baby!~  Game Day!

I'm wearing my orange-and-blue Wheaton Thunder shirt over my shirt-and-tie at work all day... well until the boss comes and says otherwise.

Can't wait to get rowdy @ McCully tonight with my fellow ThunderDawgs.  Let's show up in droves Thunder fans and be ready to make some NOISE~!

NOISE? In Wheaton? They have rules against that type of thing in Wheaton!  :D

Yes, apparatly they do, and we fans followed them to a T last year... felt like I could hear a pin drop last year.  In fact, I'll quote some random NCC player walking off the field last year during halftime, "Wow, sure is quiet over here!"

THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE TONIGHT!!!  I'll do my best 1-man wrecking crew if I have too... I plan on going hoarse tonight...

We can only hope, dog.  :)

But you can't vote for a team partially. its a whole vote or nothing. You can give 1/2 a vote. And as far as IWU, you would think people would know they lost Ziemnik and Davis, each of whom is a big loss and together a HUGE loss. A team with great guard play, a vast unknown at the forward(s) and a marginal center is not the #4 team in the country-at least not going in. As far as the person who voted them #1, not only out to lunch, but out to dinner too.
