I have to believe that Division III schools do award institutional aid here and there to recruit athletes, but I am not sure how that could be done frequently as there is an annual financial aid reporting process:

If an institution finds a lot of money for athletes, they will find themselves facing an NCAA review.

Saw the link to this on the d3football homepage:

I'm more basketball oriented, but it's nice to see an ODAC football program get this kind of pre-season respect.
The transfer safety is from one of the Minnesota schools. 
Happy and safe 4th of July to all. May God Bless America, today and always.
I've been following the to help me with my AFL betting (no good so far, but I only bet $1 a week so I'm not putting the college fund at risk.  Yet...).  I just switched over to DIII football to see where he puts the Johnnies in the pre-season and I see it will be blood sport in the MIAC, as if we didn't know that already.

Ignoring the NESCAC which screw up the ratings, he has the MIAC as tough and tight:

SJU       #9
UST       #10
BU         #11
CON      #12

According to Kevin Massey, it's anyone's game in the MIAC this year.  Should be another exciting season of MIAC football.

Absolutely...Gustavus was competitive last year as well....and if Augsburg can find some defense, they could be dangerous as well...

I'm on the Gustavus dark horse contender wagon all the way.

It will be interesting to see if they can manage to get over the SJU - BU - UST hump....They were winning at halftime vs BU and SJU, and it was close with UST...likely had lost some of the wind from their sails after losing to SJU, BU, and CORD in the prior weeks.

vs SJU - Lead at halftime 13-7             29-19 Loss

vs BU - Lead at halftime 13-7              30 - 23 Loss

vs UST - Trail 21-14                           57 - 35 Loss
This is all about depth IMHO.

I say they beat UST, lose to SJU (and Carleton of course), and then Bethel is essentially a coin flip

HSCTiger fan:  Thanks for the information.  From year to year, there are always roster changes and emerging contributors that don't show up until camps begin.  I was, of course, going off last year's rosters and results for both Hampden-Sydney and Wabash.  Everyone associated with Wabash is thinking that the Tigers will be a severe test, particularly on their home turf. 
     You mentioned Walker's one catch as a freshman and a new QB  who ended up becoming a prolific passer.  That's what makes a new year so exciting as fresh players emerge.  I recall Matt Hudson, a three-year starter for Wabash at QB.  He came off the bench in the season's third game during his sophomore year and never left the field again (except briefly in his senior season when he was injured).  He was a three-time first-team all-conference  pick and twice conference offensive player of the year.  He told me that when camp started for his soph season he was the seventh QB on the depth chart.  I know H-SC will find a talented new QB and replacements elsewhere.  So will Wabash, and I can even anticipate who some of them will be as I hear comments from inside the program.     
     Looking forward to continuing chatter here as the teams gear up for the opener.
