Refresh my memory, Who was the other all American candidate out for most of the year?

It was just one - Raridon.

I am pretty confident North Central is a Top 10-caliber team, but I think their placement in the preseason poll is just about right.  They can move up quickly by playing well.

I am surprised more voters didn't go with Augustana #1.

Q, any thoughts now on what you know to be the likely starting five and those likely to figure in the varsity rotation? 

In the Olivet Nazarene scrimmage Ron Rose started:

G Brady Rose, 6-3 Sr.
G Nick Coleman, 6-2 Jr.
F Doug Wallen, 6-5 Fr.
F Miles Curry, 6-6 So.
C Alex O'Neill, 6-9 So.

Colin Bonnett was out (concussion).

I wouldn't read too much into that lineup though.  It's early and I think safe to say all IWU rotation spots are wide open.  The Titans have a lot of talent and the staff will have to sort out which 9-10 guys, and which combos, give them the best chance.

Looking at IWU's schedule relative to the preseason poll, the Titans have 6 games scheduled vs top 25 teams...

* #2 Augie (2)
* #9 Wash U
* #12 North Central (2)
* #17 Emory

I have to imagine that total of 6 ranks very high relative to all D3 teams.

The Titans will have plenty of opportunities to prove they belong in the Top 25.

IWU scrimmaged NAIA Olivet Nazarene last night, winning the two varsity halves (played separately of course) by a total of 71-60.  IWU won the JV 22-19.

Sounds like 6-6 F Jaylen Beasley, 6-6 F Danny Baker, and 6-3 G Brady Rose starred for the Titans.  Freshman PG Grant Wolfe played well in the varsity rotation and junior guard Nick Coleman had a nice game.

Returning starter Colin Bonnett has been out with a concussion - he starts practicing tomorrow.

Carthage has a nasty defense, wow. IWU had 5 - yes 5 - rushing yards yesterday.  IWU tried hard to run the ball but there was just nothing there.

Fortunately the Titans have a tremendous defense too and made some big stops to keep IWU in the game:
  * Carthage 4th & 1 from IWU 12 in 2nd Q (Carthage 7 IWU 0)
  * Carthage 4th & 1 from IWU 36 in 2nd Q (Carthage 7 IWU 0)
  * Carthage 4th & 1 from IWU 37 in the 4th Q (IWU 13 Carthage 10)
  * Carthage 4th & 7 from IWU 47 in 4th Q (IWU 13 Carthage 10)

This game swung on a punt.  Down 10-0 early in the 3rd Q, IWU's Noah Baird punted the ball out of bounds at the Carthage 1-yard line.  The Red Men ran the ball 3 times, only getting to the 2.  On 4th down the Titans blocked the punt and recovered for the TD.  Baird's punt ended up being really big in this game.

On IWU's next possession, Brandon Bauer moved IWU down the field through the air - 22 yards to Healy, 32 to Walsh, and a 16-yard TD pass to Walsh. That was it in terms of IWU offensive points.

Really a big win for the Titans in a grind-it-out kind of game. 

Through 6 games, IWU is giving up just 9.3 points per game in CCIW play.

Yes, the season Kent Raymond Godshirted seems to be the closest comparison here.

So an hour after the game is over, perhaps in the locker room or on the ride home, a member of the officiating crew that helped pull of this 3% upset is posting this. Now that's objectivity at its finest!

Also tough for me when he officiates an IWU/NCC basketball game...but I don't come on here to complain about it.

43
AndOne, am I misinterpreting this? You were part of the officiating crew in Decatur last night?

It's widely known AndOne is a CCIW football official.

44
I guess Massey has a hard time predicting a Mickey Mouse of an officiating crew being assigned to the game.

Heck, someone needs to say it, itís pretty obvious. 15 penalties for 153 yards. When the defense picks the ball off and it gets negated by a total nonsense roughing the passer call, itís time to call a spade a spade. For the record, hitting the QB while heís releasing the ball is not roughing, itís not late... itís nothing more than hogwash call

Two weeks in a row Wheaton loses because of the officials per thunderdog.

Above, no mention of Beasley?  ms

That is a list of players I feel can play multiple positions.  I don't think Beasley is on that list - I see his time at the 4 only.

I agreed with AndOne's suggested rotation for the most part.  I think Beasley is the favorite to start at the 4.
