Mount Ida hasn't played the two worst teams on its schedule (Alfred State and Anna Maria) and one of its worst opponents (Dean) hasn't been in D-III long enough to count. Their number will come down (even with playing Husson yet to come).

Among teams they have played: Plymouth State is 6-1 and Springfield is 7-0.

I heard they wanted to call themselves the NEW MAC.  ;D

Thatís Hartford State for you...another word for Bantam is C$%K...and thatís what those guys are. Thatís bad some point in their lives, it will come back to bite them.

The Sooner's QB may have earned the right to talk some smack, and yes, boys will be boys.  But this is just a c*ck being a c*ck.

I mean, congrats on not being the first to use it, like that's some sort of distinction.

Folks: Feel free to make sure that PolarCat is the last one to use it in that manner. Thanks.

Pat, it's TRINITY's website.  I posted the link.  If the Bants' parents were so thrilled to see their 4th string kids in the "JV game", don't you think TRINITY would have corrected it?

Nope -- I see you don't understand how stats and stat collection works, or how box scores are shared across a network of websites. Here's where you're the one kinda making the dumb statement but I'll just start with what seems like the obvious -- Bates home game, Bates statistical crew.

You are going to stand by this statement that the participation report tells all, even when it claims no offensive linemen played?  ???

Lewis & Clark got players and new programs gets players -- there will also be the allure of playing time being available, at least.

Further, given the lack of attentiveness on the part of the stat crew for starting and backup offensive linemen, isn't it probable that not all of the people who played on special teams were listed either?

Trinity cleared their bench BEFORE the second half. 

Don't you just hate it when you make a dumazz statement and someone actually trots out the facts to prove you wrong?  Trinity did NOT "clear their bench".  According to the Participation report on Trinity's own website, TWENTY-SEVEN Bants did not see action, including the Senior Rookie and at least one of the other kids who posed for the photo in front of the scoreboard.

Never view the participation report in a box score as gospel. Players who don't register stats sometimes are not properly listed as having participated -- especially when you are the road team, such as Trinity was here. This box score doesn't even list Trinity as having started an offensive line, nor does it list those five as having participated. Surely those five, and other offensive linemen did.

What you are trotting out is almost certainly not fact-based either -- you have to be able to read a little more deeply than the surface on this.

There was definitely discussion about whether a national championship would be offered in "D-IV" but since we didn't get far enough down that road, there was no actual decision.

Could the NCAA accept a gift paying for flights? If someone wanted to pony up money for two additional charter flights, could the NCAA accept that?

(Don't look at me, I work in non-profit fundraising - I don't actually HAVE that kid of scratch...)

If you do know those potential funders, send them my way instead.  ;D

To that poster -- you don't actually need a permission slip!

the mistake the NFL made is not amending all contracts in the off season.

The NFL knows it does not have the authority to make these changes unilaterally. It will have to work with the players' association on this if it wants to go this route.

At the end of the season, which number will be greater: Occidental cancellations or St. John Fisher victories?
Ugh. What a disaster.   (203) 52%
Occidental cancellations (100) 26%
St. John Fisher victories (58) 15%
They'll be equal (23) 5%
Total votes: 384

Well Well Well... 2 days after I told about the horse race to see who would be the last D3 school to post their schedule, 6 of the missing 8 have shown up... thanks to the SIDs of Johnson State, Albertus Magnus, Lesley, Wilson, Rosemont, and Stockton for responding..

Leaving the final 2

Amherst   and   Greensboro

I will say that both of these schools have historically been extremely late in getting their schedule posted!!   Who knows why....

Amherst got theirs posted, I've given up on Greensboro... why one school of 427 would not have their schedule posted after practice has started is beyond me... My pointing it out to the SID (in a friendly way) has not helped...

I was going to say -- we have Amherst's schedule on our site. And 25 games for Greensboro:

Is it possible that Linfield has been working on the game coming up for the last 2 weeks?

I thought it was possible:
