Having watched #5 Hope and #6 OWU, I agree with oldknight that Hope is the better a decent margin in my opinion.  For me, Hope's bigs are the difference.  But that said, I think OWU is ranked right where they should be.  I can't really make a case for a single team below #6 to be ranked ahead of the Bishops.

There are always tiers/separating points in the poll.  Right now, I think there is a break after #5.  Whatever the right order is for the top 5 - I think Hope might be better than Augustana, but want to see a few more games - those 5 seem to be the elite teams at this point.  I think Ohio Wesleyan on down there is a whole bunch of parity.

Solid win!  Maybe even Dave will think they deserve to be in the top 25 now. Yes that was a dig Dave.

Good win... but you are also assuming I think Tufts is a team to mark as being note-worthy. :) I mean Tufts has been 13-12 the last two seasons. Honestly, there is nothing about WPI's out-of-conference schedule that impresses me. They have taken hits in the past for their scheduling, and they did a nice job the last year or two... but this year's schedule isn't much... Eastern Connecticut, maybe... Staten Island, okay... Bates, interesting... rest of it not worth discussing. Their SOS isn't going to be worth talking about - or it will be in how it's going to hurt them - this season.

But thanks for reading my blog. :)

Condolences to the Linfield family.  I was a little critical of Saturday's broadcast and apologize.

You and me both, and I feel like a real donkey for doing so.

I was unaware of what was going on with the students at Amherst. There are so many protests at so many schools, I simply can't keep up... so I focus on what grabs my attention (i.e. Washington College and University of Chicago scares recently).

It is is certainly interesting per the Lord Jeffs (especially since I think the Washington NFL team should get rid of their mascot name)... but I will have to read up on it more (though, I get it has to do with smallpox and the French and Indian War). It also will be interesting to hear what the board of trustees has to say while the President continues to say no. :) In the meantime, I will patiently wait for the hate mail from the Amherst student-body. :) And I love a good natured tease. LOL

As for Hope and Ohio Wesleyan. I get your point... I would say OWU is in the area I am nervous about as well. But that isn't to say a number three team and a number six team are close together... they may be worlds apart because the difference between four and five might be just as wide. We see it in women's basketball all of the time - a large gap between the top tier and the middle tier even if they are ranked close together. Same in football.
Love how I post here and I get negative Karma, some of you are a joke.  And yes I am pretty sure it was from this sight since I dont get dinged anywhere else when I post.
I can't believe that with this game coming up this weekend that this is what the topic of discussion is.  I am glad a few people have given some insight into the game.  Hopefully more of you who are fans of both teams will also add some insight for those of us on the outside looking in.
Thanks for providing the hard-hitting insights you're looking for here, and for calling out some of whom "are a joke," to use your words...
I haven't ever dinged you, but I could if you'd like...
I've been as clear as I possibly can be. If you don't understand what I've written, I'm not going to try again. All I can say is "READ AND TRY TO COMPREHEND!"

I would if you stopped yelling. *sniff*

Removing the NESCAC, here's how Massey ranks the remaining D3 teams:

1- Mt. Union
2- St. Thomas
3 - Whitewater
4 - Linfield
5 - Wabash
6 - Oshkosh
7 - UMHB
9 - Wesley

(Thomas More is 8th)

Massey predictions:

Mt. Union 44, Wesley 27 - Mt. Union 88% probability
St. Thomas 34, Wabash 19 - St. Thomas 85% probability
Oshkosh 23, Whitewater 22 - 50 / 50 coin flip
Linfield 35, UMHB 31 - Linfield 62% probability

I agree with those, except for Thomas More being ahead of Wesley.  I like the score of the game, flip 1 score the other way and Wesley is within a few to win the game.  One can hope.
