No, I haven't learned anything that change my predictions on the season.

Both Jacoubs (Moravian) and Carmon (Del Val) sat out scrimmages this weekend but both will be ready on Saturday.

First, welcome to  We hope you enjoy your son's football experience and make us your primary home for following the Division III landscape.

As to your question, it really depends on the school he is attending.  Many schools have JV programs with active schedules.  Depending on a lot of factors, several freshmen contribute as varsity regulars or even starters as the season progresses.  Again, a lot depends on the school he is attending.

On another note, I saw the Del Val/Ursinus scrimmage today.  Del Val's offense was a little slow at first and kept things pretty basic in terms of what they ran.  The first team unit scored 10 points with Knoblauch at the helm and 7 with the new back-up Hassenauer running things.  The reserves for both schools scored TDs in the second half.

Beyond the "score" (24-7 Del Val), which doesn't mean a whole lot, the Aggies looked alright on offense with Knoblauch getting in a rhythm near the end of the first half. 

Billman's pride-and-joy did a nice job, hitting a 37-yard field goal and going 3-3 on PATs.  And the defense was pretty solid, though it's hard to tell how much was their good play and how much was Ursinus still struggling to find its way.

All in all, a decent showing -- I think last year's scrimmage in Collegeville had a similar "final."

I don't know.  I picked Oglethorpe because I want to say Stormy Petrol more often.   :D

On an unrelated note, that is one of the most creative usernames I've seen in a while, Coocoo.

Glad you like it, Uncle Jessie.

Tell your friends about it.  Just don't tell them too much so they buy their own copy.  ;)

And you made a bit of history with your post.  Shenandoah will forever be remembered as the first school to complain about its coverage in the Kickoff Special.  ;D

We've thought a fair amount about how Trinity compares to others outside the NESCAC.

You can check out where we rank them among all the other 230 Division III teams in the just-published Kickoff Special.

On a separate topic, check out this lated development on the "hostile mascot" front:

Will McMurry pursue a similar tact with the NCAA?

If so, I wonder how many schools will ultimately end up impacted by this.

You're right.  My bad.  That should read 120 kids total, not recruits.

I actually had a chance to talk to all 11 head coaches during the offseason while working on the Kickoff Special.  They had a lot of interesting insight which I can't share for fear of reprisal from the Kickoff Special organizers.  ;)

Just between you and me, here are a few tidbits...

  - Del Val opened camp on Saturday.  Coach Mangus is excited about the crop of O- and D-line recruits.  The Aggies have their Green and Gold scrimmage on Saturday and then scrimmage Ursinus on August 27.

  - I asked Coach Dapp of Moravian if he worried about Jacoubs wearing down given his workload.  His response -- "Jacoubs doesn't get tired."  The Greyhounds scrimmage Franklin & Marshall before opening at home.

 - FDU Coach Rich Mosca reports the Devils will have approx. 120 recruits, about the same number as last year.  He'd like to add some lights so the Devils can host a friday night game.  FDU has an open date in week one so they'll scrimmage Saint Lawrence in Albany.

I could tell you more, but then why would you order the Kickoff Special?   ;D

Ha.  Yeah, the "glowing affect" wasn't quite what I had in mind.

But I like some of these other features.

I now proudly present, man getting sick on a roller coaster
