Some conferences impose additional restrictions but here's the base spring practice:
15 or 16 (I forget which) practice sessions. Football allowed but no pads.

If a school is making a trip out of the country over summer break, a team gets 10 padded practices to prepare for that. You can make a trip like that once every three years.

To retire a story from a couple weeks ago that didn't seem to die -- Frostburg State didn't bring any players to the postgame news conference because none were requested to show up. The Alliance local media didn't have any questions for them.

It might be more likely that it's typical for games before classes resume in January. Generally it takes a while for the fan interest to come around to the basketball season.

I see the only team to test MHB through the air was East Baptist, who threw for 267 yards. It doesn't look like MHB even played anyone who could throw the ball all year.

Chapman comes immediately to mind.

Quick question for my fellow stat nerds:
LVC has a good records section on their website, listing game, season and career record holders.  Two current players, Sam Light and Andy Orr, are climbing the all-time scoring list.  But Light transferred in after his freshman season at Division II Millersville, and the 334 points he scored as a freshman are being included in his total on the LVC all-time scoring list.  They have an asterisk and a note at the bottom indicating that he scored 334 points at a D-II institution.

Even if you count just his sophomore and junior seasons and 9 games of his senior season, he's scored 1318 points at LVC, which puts him at 20th on the list.  But with those Millersville points thrown in he's at 1652, bumping him up to 7th on the list. (The site hasn't been updated since Nov 16th, so it's still showing 1496.)

I can understand wanting to recognize a player that has a real chance of scoring 2000 points in his college career, but his spot on the LVC All-Time Scoring List should only include points scored for LVC, right?  I realize this isn't that important in the grand scheme of things, but I guess I'm a stickler for accuracy.  Change the asterisk to say "he scored an additional 334 points at Millersville" if you want. 

I emailed the SID but he never wrote back.

Am I crazy or is this very odd?

It isn't the way I would keep my record book, but they can certainly keep their record books as they wish.

By the way, not surprising that the all-time scorers list isn't updated in-season. That's typically an offseason job for an SID.

Congrats on that!

Pat injects reason (and a bit of snark depending on what time it is) to keep this board at some kind of reasonable level...

That sounds about right. :)

Now, now , now desertraider, it's a known fact University of Mount Union (did the change from College to University increase the prestige of old guy's diplomas?) has yet to win an away game on the West Coast.

Also in misleading stats: No Northwest Conference team has ever beaten Mount Union.

Sorry in advance if this is a stupid question but I've seen a ton of posts about UWO grey-shirting players this past week, and I can't tell if people are truly up-in-arms about it or if they're just being sarcastic/trolls... If it's the former, I confess to not quite quite understanding why it's such a big deal.

...clearly I'm new here.

I suspect there's some of both.

As of Sept. 15, it had not been filled.

Agreed -- that only draws well if Grand Valley is playing in the D2 game and that doesn't help D3 at all. In this scenario, D3 is the little brother at its own championship.

If the games are played back to back, you will get people in attendance watching both games instead of a single game out in left field in Texas.

Well, we're going to get to test your hypothesis, because Shenandoah is in the Houston media market and some decent local advertising would do the same for that game.

UW-OSH's lack of pass rush allowed Fulford to sit back there and find the open man.

100% true. But he also bought time well when he needed to at well. UMHB's defensive philosophy is different than UWO's, but not overly different than Mount Union's.
