In some ways, Muhlenberg reminds me of service academy (Army Navy Air Force) teams.

Athletically capable, but very very smart and disciplined, executing to a high degree of perfection...

I seem to recall there being some folks who argued the last team in the field, or any pool C team really has no realistic chance to win the Stagg. I may be misremembering this discussion but if thatís the case, this year may be the year that 2 Pool Cís end up playing for the Stagg.
Respectfully, I think that is the case.

I think that the consensus on this forum is that we are about 2-3 Pool C teams shy of what we need to an appropriate field of competitive teams in the football Pool C bids, that there were 2-3 teams left on the board who were worthy Pool C candidates this year.

I thought that this was a rebuilding year for UMHB. They had to fill so many positions in the Top 44 or 66 that had been filled with Juniors and Seniors in the past.

There is a big difference between 18 & 19 year olds and 21 and 22 year olds.

What a deflating last series of the half.

With 1st and 10 on the UWW 32, I would have played for the FG.  UWW just destroyed the UMHB O-line and got FOUR sacks!

At 43 minutes in podcast 246 Pat Coleman put Mount Union and North Park in the same sentence.

Gregory Sager might put them in another sentence, teams that have won the most National Championships, one in Football,the other in Hoops!

 ;D  Go listen!

As an outsider looking at the UMHB depth of talent, I consider there are 4 strata of a talent on the UMHB roster after 12 games into the season.

1) All-conference and better

2) Veteran starter
2a) 20 or 21 years old after 2-3 years in the UMHB weight room
2b) 18-19 years old and now has 4-5 games as a starter

3a) 20-21 years old and has worked with the program, coming up thru the ranks
3b) 18 years old and talented. Good progress on the JV

4) Loyal kid on the JV who might contribute significantly at another program. Unfortunately, he doesn't appear on the playoff roster.

That being said, the freshmen on the 2-deep will be okay.  The system just cultivates excellence.

My bracket is busted.  Of more historical significance, the only "Purples" left on the board are UMHB and UWW.  There may be a new colored jersey to win the Stagg Bowl.

As far as I know we have the final year of the 4 year set with Guilford, the usual week 2 against BSC, and the second half of the home-and-home with Oshkosh.

Who is 'we'?
Sorry. That's Huntingdon.
Selina Hastings, the Countess of Huntingdon, was a philanthropist and patroness of  John Wesley and the Methodist movement in England. She is for whom the college, formerly a women's college, is named.

This may be D-1, but in my neighborhood, the big game today is Masseyrating #223 Stephen F Austin just beat #Masseyrating #2 Duke in Cameron on a layup with 0.4 seconds remaining in OT, 85-83. (Or Ken Pomeroy #1 vs #263.)
