There has been a time where SCIAC went straight to a different site other than Texas for the first round, 2015 La Verne went to St. Thomas. That year Linfield faced Whitworth in game one and UMHB faced HSU first round. IT's just how things work out

Ground game looks promising which is what Coach Fred wants. Very pleased, Cru are looking solid in the various phases so it is just time to wait to see what happens per game. But I can say this, personally, in a few years, this Cru puts things at ease for me. In the past we have always had a question here or there, This Cru seems decently settled in for a start of a season. Yeah, silly offisdes blowups were rampant but overall very confident Cru. 2018 looks really bright

Having watched years of FCS(1AA football), there is no doubt that UMHB would be middle of the pack and competitive in 1AA...I'd love to see them schedule a mid tier FCS as an out of conference game...I'd go!

If MHB "would be middle of the pack and competitive in 1AA," why aren't they in 1AA instead of leaving a trail of devastation in D3? Your thoughts?

Would you ask the same question of UMU? Moving up in divisions is incredibly expensive. My Alma Mater (Cal Baptist) just moved into Div 1 into the WAC, but it took over a decade to grow the student base, expand facilities which would draw enough students for tuition and scholarship support for those programs. UMHB at this time, while growing well, is not in that vein, leave that to the Little brother Baylor U one city over. The growth of UMHB is slow and steady, not flashing to make a jump which could be disastrous (I'm thinking of a recently returned U in our ASC conference who went DII and came back having to wait two years before being able to be eligible to go post season) It's all about the bucks....And the culture

My take was.. I missed the first half due to storm cutting our power...but from the second half, which was already up 50, speed is crazy, and the list of talent kinda makes you ask, when are they all going to play? De'Nerian Thomas, a QB? Where did that come from, he was great! I think this is something the Cru has been needing since 2016. Last season we had competent players no doubt, but there was a edge missing and I like this group.... very please to see a explosive Offense.
So many new Cru to  learn about, it going to make this season even that much more fun.

Uhhh Guys... HSU is the real deal.... the UMHB/ HSU game is going to be (from what I can see at this point) one hell of a game.

Well we will see it put together on the field tomorrow, there are some questions to be filled out like, who will be the dominate QB.

I am new to D3 Football as my son is a freshman this year and I just found this sight a few days ago.  Nice to chat and see what is going on around the conference.

Welcome to the boards! Glad to have a Southwestern fan on board!

Are there many Pirate fans on board? All I see are mostly UMHB and HSU.

Ok Yeah SU, you have a semi- allied fan here, I have said since the inception of the SW program that they could and would do great things and I am glad they are in the ASC where they belong. What do I see for the Pirates this season? top 3 easy...  I am firmly a Cru fan but I also like SU. Last season they didn't roll over verse the Cru and HSU, they bring their game and after seeing their first outing, this a solid team. Like I had mentioned before, they aren't flashy, but solid and I foresee a good season in 2018.

Well, In officially isn't the UMHB/HSU game dubbed the battle of the baptists? My oldest who just graduated used to tell me the various behind the scene names like of course Hardin Sinners (sometimes hardened sinners) and the University of Money Hungry Baptists. But my favorite is the raids pregame that go on. Last season before the HSU games the girls drove to HSU and put UMHB license plate holders on some of their friends cars, put UMHB stickers on their rear windows (Not permanent, they are not vandals after all) and the HSU kids coming over and putting for sale signs at the Cruthdral, old ratty for sale signs at that! and painting their friends cars windows with HSU Cowboys..The games are great, the pre game is fun, but I could get behind a Battle for the Republic tag!
