Lebanon Valley has good records on their website.  They have recorded that they beat Moravian on 1/28/1995.  Feels pretty likely that that was Moravian's next game and that they passed The BeltTM to Lebanon Valley instead of back to Widener as was recorded.


I can confirm from perusing archives of the Morning Call that this was Moravian's next game.  1/28 (Lebanon Valley-Moravian) was a Saturday, and 1/30 (F&M-Lebanon Valley) was a Monday.

The existential question to me is: F&M had already surrendered the BeltTM when it was taken away from them by the forfeitures.  Can an alternate path exist if the BeltTM was no longer in their possession when this happened?


Did we just eliminate Goucher's only Belt time?  Dave's not going to be happy about that.

Yeah we did. Sorry Dave.
Or does this mean that F&M retroactively "vacated" holding The BeltTM and it does not impact those teams who competed on the court for ItTM?  Goucher could still lay claim to holding ItTM during those games in Goucher's history.

I finished the 8 hour book in 6.5 hours (on 1.25 times speed). I only put the book down twice.

I recommend the book from the "science" of football perspective. The author explains very clearly what principles drove Coach Mumme to develop the Air Raid.  In many cases Coach Mumme took average hard-working athletes and put them in a system in which excellent execution of the system permitted success against more talented athletes.

The account of the 1994 2nd round game between Valdosta State and Univ of North Alabama is very enjoyable to read.

$4M is certainly hard to make up in a shortfall.

If HSU needed $15,000 of hard cash per student per year, then they would need 266 more students to make up the $4M difference.
They would need 200 more students at $20,000 per student per year.

Wow.  HSU is cutting 22 programs, 31 positions as well as their seminary.

https://www.bigcountryhomepage.com/news/hardin-simmons-cutting-22-programs-more-than-31-faculty-staff-positions/amp/
The blood letting at HSU is really causing a stir. Killed the seminary, putting the undergrad program under liberal arts. Moving education under the school of Business... big shake up causing people to ask questions about endowments and such.
So often, endowments are restricted and do not help with general expenses.

The Seminary is what surprised me.

Friends, I am reading (audiobook   ;)The Perfect Pass, American Genius and the Re-invention of American Football by S. C. Gwynne.

I am currently in the Hal Mumme/ Mike Leach era at Iowa Wesleyan College in the old Illini-Badger-Hawkeye Conference.

The book is lots of fun.

Gwynne, who attended JHU, has also written Empire of the Summer Moon about Comanche Chief Quanah Parker and Hymns of the Republic about the last year of the Civil War.

So UMHB has a Tingler and a Tingley coming in? Both with first names of Jackson and both QBs? Are they related?
I just hope that UMHB doesn't have a DB named "Stingley" coming in.

Greensboro College announced last week that they have hired a new coach, Tyler Card.  He is a 2010 graduate of Southern Virginia.  Looks like he is originally from Utah but is well traveled.  He coached at SVU for a few years then went to Weber State (UT) then to Pace (NY).  He has spent the past 5 years at Sul Ross State in TX.  He was the OC for the last 3 years.  He has an OL background which I always appreciate.  I wish him and the Pride the best of luck this season (with the exception of 11/7 against the Monarchs).
Sul Ross!?!  He's gonna get claustrophobic from all of the trees. LOL

I suspect he won't get drafted.  But I am sure he will get a few looks as an undrafted free agent.  Someone looking for a slot receiver and punt returner might take a chance on him.

He had a nice punt return in the Shrine game.
He reminds me of Jerheme Urban. Caoch Urban hung around the pros a long time because of work ethic and excellent technique.
