Looks like the SAA had a decent representation on the All- South region team.
6 players on 1st team, 2 on second team and 3 on third. and not all were seniors.

well done.

Muhlenberg is playing very well.  This next game looks to be a good match-up.  Can't wait to see it.

B-SC's RB Robert Shufford and Millsaps DL Liam Vincifora are the SAA representatives on this year's AFCA All-America team.   Well-deserved, and congratulations!

Yes, congratulations to both!

You have no chance when you turn it over 4 times in the first half. We're lucky it isn't worse than it is.
Yep, needed a clean game and the turnovers spelled doom early.  Congrats Hawks on a good season.

Congrats to NCC on an outstanding defensive game plan in the second half.

Looking forward to this game. I watched the whole game from Saturday and it seems that Huntingdon has a strong running back and a tough defensive line. UMHB has struggled to run against disciplined defensive lines this year. I think they give in a little too soon. From watching the game, it looks as if the secondary do the hawks is susceptible and that may be where we attack. Any thoughts from the SAA fans who have seen Huntingdon play more than I have?
I would say that they definitely will want to establish the run first.  It was a rainy start, similar to the forecast for this Saturday.  They had two running backs that got most of the carries, both were effective at times.  I was impressed by their lines, I don't think they will have the depth as UMHB but they have a few starters that should hold their own.

It was a tough game Saturday.  Huntingdon did a good job holding the defensive pressure away from the QB.  Berry has done a good job of forcing quick pressure all season to prevent the secondary from having to defend a lot of deep throws.  The Hawks O-line held the d-line back just enough to connect on several long passes.

Berry had their chances on offense but didn't make the plays.

That swing pass to the RB wheel route just before the half was a TD if he had just caught the ball.  It would have made all the difference going into the half.

Congrats to Huntingdon, good luck next Saturday.

Congratulations to Huntingdon for a great game plan.

It is obvious you guys have had plenty of experience in the rain this year.  Very good execution in some tough weather.

Great crowd, I hope they enjoyed the experience in Rome.

Good Luck this Saturday.

Looks like it is going to be a rainy day tomorrow.  Wishing good travel to Rome for the Huntingdon team and fans.

I hope to see a big crowd, but I know this rain will keep some fans away.

It is going to be a tough game, and you never know about football when it is wet.  Anything can happen.

Wow, how did you find that?
this is great.

I see this schedule:
eliminates the same team from having the bye at the end of the season
keeps alternating opponent home/away for every team opponent (best I can tell)
keeps the weekly home/away alternation (esp good for the Texas teams since they won't be on the road 2 weeks in a row).
mixes up the matchups from season to season (some years a matchup is early, some years mid/ late)


looks like a good plan.  It took me a minute to realize UOS was Sewanee.

I may be wrong, but I guess we are paying the price for the disaster that was the Birmingham Southern game (really, what happened that day?  I was listening and turned it off after about  5 minutes.   We basically crush everyone all season long ... except for the much closer Trinity game.... and just didn't show up one week).  With the ranking we had prior to losing that game ... we prob would have gotten a "better" 2nd round game.  I literally groaned when I saw Mary Hardin Baylor.  As someone said earlier ... we are just going to have to win one of these games (or at least be competitive) to earn a bit more respect.  A 70 point loss isn't going to help matters.

Of course, no one needs to overlook Huntington.  We will have to play very well to make the 2nd round.

Seems unlikely.  The Berry/Huntingdon winner is going to be a geographic orphan and UMHB, also an orphan, needs an opponent.  Until there's a philosophy change, it looks like those orphaned teams are going to get paired up as quickly as possible, regardless of what might be seed-appropriate.
What we would have to do is beat them one year then go 10-0 the next. That way we would get to play them at home that next year in the second round instead of going to Texas.

A "better" 2nd round game would be nice, but most fans aren't delusional about chances to go deep against the top of the D3 mountain.  To get fans to consistently travel (I think ticket sales are important for the NCAA) they might want to consider avoiding potential repeat matchups.  They know it is a problem because they changed the rules for 1st round conference matchups.  But D3 fans have so few opportunities to travel and see other programs outside their regions, it would have been nice to potentially see someone different this year.  I talked to several fans who made the trip last year and they were all non-committal about the potential of this trip.

I guess we will see.  Need to win Saturday or this is Huntingdon's issue.  Looks like it is going to be a wet rainy morning, hopefully it moves out before the kickoff.

The projected bracket keeps Berry away from last year’s second-round matchup with UMHB; may they be correct.  Good luck, Vikings - here’s hoping you make if further this year than last!

Never mind.  Huntington-Berry winner gets UMHB (in all likelihood) in second round again.

Very disappointed they couldn't find some other way to match these teams.  SAA continues to get 1st seed matchups in the 2nd round.  Last year 2 SAA teams got 1st seed match-ups after Berry and Centre won first round, they played the eventual championship contenders.  Might have been different if Berry hadn't laid an egg against Birmingham Southern but you never know.

Well now, they just need to win and plan for Belton again.

I would think it would have been different had Berry went 10-0 and been ranked higher in the RR. I believe the SAA will continue to see this kind of bracketing until someone can get past the 2nd round a few times. Fortunately for Berry, they get a home game in the first round because of the 500 mile radius 'rule'. They are really a lower seeded team getting to host.
Well that's the issue isn't it.  I think there are several 2nd round match-ups that would be excellent games for SAA teams.  But as we see the SAA keep drawing the juggernauts.  Centre last year would have matched up well with Brockport or Rensselaer,  maybe even Bethel or Muhlenberg.  But they drew Mount Union.

Good win for Berry on Saturday.  Quite an impressive run for the Vikings these last fours years.  On to the playoffs.

Also wanted to acknowledge being impressed by Trinity, who had a great season.  Birmingham Southern and Austin were also greatly improved.  Hendrix and Centre are always good.  The conference as a whole seems to be improving.

This Senior class did not lose a home game in 4 years.  Amazing.
