My posts have nothing to do with Williams or Kenyon or whatever. I could care less about karma and all that. I gave Ryan a + for his argument with NCAC. First of all, Ryan does a lot for this site and his previews I enjoy immensely. He is a young guy and probably has a lot of other commitments to attend to but he gives his time to this site. I appreciate that more than anything. After reading his preview I see absolutely nothing wrong with the way it was presented. If anyone is more aware of the potential to be biased it would be Ryan or anyone for that matter writing about their school. I thought NCAC flew off the handle for no reason at all so I gave him a - karma. That is it I usually do not even mess with the karma unless someone makes a stupid post.

Honestly, the East is the weakest pod because CNU is a good team but to inconsistent. OWU I have seen on video 5 times this year and they are DOWN this year. Kenyon in my mind has been overrated all year. Their LOSS to Messiah last year makes everyone believe they are a stellar team. I do not think they can score goals. Whitworth is solid but not going to content for the 2014 title.

Watched the first quarter of the HSC/Randolph game.  Looked a lot like the Bridgewater game.  My question is, how did Macon only win 5 games.  They run the ball very well.  Need to improve the passing, but they look nice running.

So is St Olaf any good?  They were able to stick with the Pointers, that seems to be a positive.   ???

I thought so last year, made the tournament and were knocked about by Central, Ia.  They returned a lot, have a solid center and a lot of nice players around him.  I suspect it will be St. Thomas and St. Olaf for the MIAC.

Point was more talented, but not by a lot.  St. Olaf won by playing a really good 2nd half of defense, Point couldn't hit the same shots they hit in the 1st half and St. Olaf made enough, got a good break and won a close game.  But Point could have easily won that game.  I wouldn't write-off either team for March just yet.

Good luck WPI this weekend against Chicago and Cabrini.  Going to have to start making a few 3's to compete in these 2!

Crazy start to the season:  Albertus Magus lost, Williams lost twice, Tufts lost twice, Colby lost big, Babson lost, Amherst tested against Ana Maria.

Going to be a wide open season at the top of the Northeast.

The Whits need to play MORE of these games. No more cupcake preseason games! They need to go to Wisconsin and go to the east coast in the preseason.

Regular season, bh4, not preseason. These games count.

HCAlum86:  I mentioned that the HM players are selected by their head coach.  So, apparently the Hiram coach did not submit Weaver and Fleetion for the HM listing.
     First and second team are chosen by the coaches around the league; by what specific process I don't know.
     Reviewing the HM selections, one can see that there are three and only three from each team.  This is by design and gives the coaches a chance to name three of their players not selected in the larger pool by the coaches around the league.  Why the Hiram coach didn't but Weaver and Fleetion on his list--and did include Partridge, Romanowski, and Bates--may have to do with all three of them being seniors.  Just a thought.

Time to change from Monkey Stomp to Cake Walk, as defined in earlier Wisconsin Conference posts:

How to do a Cake Walk:
Instructions

        1

        Place teams in a circle as if you were playing musical chairs. The number of chairs can vary based on the size of the gathering and the expected amount of interest in the Cake Walk.
        2

        Place a number on each chair, starting with 1 and going as high as necessary, depending on the number of chairs you have in the circle. Now take a number and place by each pastry. Have a nice display of the goodies on some tables so that everyone can see them.
         3

        Start some "We Are the Champions" on the stereo. Instruct the participants to walk around the chairs until the music stops. Participants should sit in the nearest chair when the music stops. Stop the music after 30 seconds or 1 minute.
        4

        Draw a number out of box or other container. The participant who sat in the chair with the corresponding number wins the prize for that round.


   

Fours steps in the instructions?  There's no way WIAC people could think up something that complex.

Franklin is starting a freshman center.

Yep, it was next man up when three-year starter and senior captain Joe Green went down with an injury.

The other big injury for the GRIZ is the loss of TE Dylan Jenney.  Jenney is a senior captain who has size (6'5 240) and speed.  He was the GRIZ's leading receiver against both IWU and UWW and was lost during game 3 at Anderson.  His receiving and blocking has been missed.

That kid was a stud. Too bad about the injury. Two captains down.  Feel bad for them. It's always hard to be out for the playoffs after all that hard work, especially in the playoffs.

Rutgers-Newark has 13 upperclassmen and were 20-9 last year.  They were selected pre-season favorite in the NJAC.
