You don't think Northwestern could have been suspect to being rather fatigued, especially mentally from the elation, as well? They beat two good teams and have been knocking on the door for several years. Downplaying what they did on what if's and speculation doesn't always work for me. If that was the case, my alma mater was a Final Four team... if they hadn't choked in the second round back in 1997.

I wasn't meaning to downplay what Northwestern did (though I see it could certainly be taken that way), just putting some context on it.  We'll never know for sure, of course, but I'm pretty confident Elmhurst wins that game if not for St. Norbert.

You bring back great memories for this Titan fan by your choice of the 1997 tourney! ;D
Perhaps the CCIW should adopt the Friday/Saturday schedule to get ready for the tournament format?

Odds and ends

NFL Camp reports:

According to Jason Wilde, ESPN Wisconsin senior NFL writer, Matt Blanchard is currently working ahead of Nick Hundley as Packers #3 QB.

Also reports out of Cinncinati, from Corey Harvey ESPN NFL Nation reporter covering the Bengals and others on the scene: enjoyed watching the new #84 (Jake Kumerow); had a few nice grabs including a deep route for a TD; looked sharp in the spring, too; may be one name to keep an eye on this camp. 

Also, from the MAC Football Media Day:

Buffalo slotted in as the #5 (of 7) position in the Mid-American Conference East Division Preseason Poll - Bowling Green, Ohio, Akron, and UMass ahead of the Bulls.

Quote from his new QB Joe Licata talking about LL's career record, "109-6 is very impressive. I'm going to do everything I can to not be part of number 7." 

Does the WIAC have a media day? Or is that a thing of the past?

Ok fellow Raiders - I need some help (with gear...). I have a black Raiders visor and I love it - but it is showing its age and is quite faded. I need a new visor - want one in Purple (and it can't be Nike - long story). Mount's bookstore has informed me they have ordered visors.....from Nike. Internet shows me the same 3 or 4 hats but no visors. Suggestions?? I know it doesn't seem like a real issue - but it is. Want to start the year with new gear, that has not been tainted by having been worn for a losing game to UWW. Thanks all and Roll Raiders!

BTW: even ONU, OTT and other OAC'ers can feel free to provide suggestions to. After all - you have seen your fair share of Raiders gear filling up your stadiums for YEARS!  ;D

College campuses are usually beautiful places.  Now that I am older, I wonder why we waste them on the youth.

After turning 67 yesterday, I say AMEN. ;D

SJU does look gorgeous, but I will suggest at least two others into the competition: Guilford College (ODAC, D3) and Miami of Ohio (D1).  There are also several others that I think are equally gorgeous, but my feeble brain is not conjuring up names at the moment.  AND there are many, many campuses I have never visited.  Claiming to be THE most beautiful is a fool's errand! :o

I mean, I don't now what players could have done in the offseason to pass the players in front of them. :)

The instances in which that does happen are generally related to a couple possibilities -- someone has a great postseason that isn't accounted for in the previous year's All-Region voting (Brady Grayvold, anyone?) or a previously worthy player returns from an injury.

Something that makes such perfect sense doesn't usually strike up this kind of discussion with this many people. It's being debated because it doesn't make sense.

So this is the first time you've seen an All-American list? :) They all get debated. That's the point.

Getting an open date filled in the 8th week (LaCollege & Ky Wesleyan) is really good/fortuitous/lucky/indicative of tenacity!
