So, I guess not.
Now it's time to go continue learning how to count to ten.  ::) 

Isn't Augie pretty safe for a Pool C bid?


Aren't they shaky now, and with virtually no chance should they lose on Friday?

One thing that did pan out pretty much as theorized in the preseason was Carroll finding the sledding to be much tougher in the CCIW than in the MWC. After finishing 15-3 (2nd) in the Midwest, and 20-5 overall last year, and returning the majority of it's team, CU ended it's first season in the CCIW at 13-12 overall, and 8-8 in the conference. This mark was good for only a sixth place tie in the 9 team conference.

Should be a great CCIW tournament -- in Kenosha.  Wide open, really -- anyone could win. 


Yep. #4 North Central beat #2 North Park, and took both #1 Carthage and #3 Augie to OT before dropping close decisions. 


5:00---North Park vs. Augie
7:00---Carthage vs. North Central

Fly high tonight BLUEJAYS!!!

I assume this was far less blasphemous than posting something in either that shade of green or some combination of navy and orange?  I mean, either of those results would be fine too. ;)

But, yes either of those results would be perfectly acceptable tonight:) ;)

Fly high tonight BLUEJAYS!!!

Conference honors will come out soon.  Robinson, Sorenson, and Francis will be 1st team, I'd say.  Who might join them?


The top players on two top teams.

CCIW schedule:

I would hope the NCC staff is working to schedule a game for 9/9. 🏈  ;D

Waiting to see what #11 Benedictine (21-4) and #13 St. Norbert (19-4) do once they get into the national tournament and have to play teams outside of their very weak conferences. I'm not saying either BU or StN isn't a decent team. However, by playing in the NACC, where 7 of the other 10 teams do not have winning records, BU gets to rack up a high number of basically automatic wins. Likewise, StN enjoys dominating the equally weak MWC where teams are limited to 23 regular season games, and 6 of the other 9 teams will finish at .500 or below. The #3 seed in the Midwest Conference tournament has only a 12-11 record, and will almost assuredly lose it's 1st round game to finish the season at a robust .500.
If either BU or STN played in conferences such as the CCIW, WIAC, or NESCAC, they would be middle of the pack teams, and wouldn't be enjoying national #11 and #13 rankings.

Some pretty long and boring bus rides would come with those trips, hopefan.
In the interest of time and money, might we interest your conference teams in some shorter rides to the renowned metropolis of Decatur?  :D

Since there's next to nothing going on today in terms of D3 games, and, therefore, Massey isn't going to change anything pertinent to the CCIW ...

Current Massey:

  16. Augustana
  27. Carthage
  33. North Park
  37. Illinois Wesleyan
  45. North Central
  94. Wheaton
103. Carroll
198. Elmhurst
319. Millikin

Massey sez:

@ North Park 82, Millikin 61 (NPU 97%, MU 3%)
@ Illinois Wesleyan 75, Augustana 73 (IWU 56%, AC 44%)
@ Carthage 80, Wheaton 75 (CC 69%, WC 31%)
Carroll 73, @ Elmhurst 71 (CU 55%, EC 45%)

Massey ranks Augie 16th and IWU 37h, and then sez IWU 75, Augie 73.  ??? 
Maybe he found out The Stomper is going to rest his starters for the conference tournament.  ;)

I've never studied Massey's methodology, but that sounds close enough in rankings that home court could easily account for the prediction.

But home court didn't help much against North Central on Saturday night.  ;)
Perhaps its the excitement that is expected to be generated from the Matt Adams night celebration.  8-)

I don't think the NCAA is going to select a team with 8 losses that couldn't even make their own 4 team conference tournament.  ::)

Why the SID has to deliver checks to the officials is beyond me. Let him handle information, for goodness sakes!

That would never work. It makes too much sense.  ;)
