Tiger Fan, speaking of rosters, just took a look at the 2019 HSC roster.  Only 15 freshmen??  That's extremely light by HSC standards where 35-40 freshmen are typical.  Likewise, RMC usually has about the same 35-40 freshmen.  I've never seen only 15 freshmen on an ODAC team, at lease not in the last 25-30 years.

Any transfers on that H-SC roster?

^^^ Extorting t-shirts from fellow posters is likely a violation of the terms of service.  :D :D

Also, I'm hoping there will be a newsworthy article regarding the SLIAC coming out in in the near future... I was made privy, and rather than post here, I passed it on to Pat and staff... keep your eyes open....

I'm excited to learn what this is about.

I think hopefan has it right with Fontbonne. They have young talent like Webster did two seasons ago. For Webster that young talent came through last season, though a number of their wins were scary close and could easily have been losses -- both games vs Fontbonne, at Mac, at Westminster, home vs Blackburn. If Fontbonne plays to the potential of that young talent they will be in the conference tourney.

^^^ Don't forget Guilford. They lost by 3 in the Elite Eight to eventual national champ UW-Oshkosh. I don't know their roster, but it looks like they have a lot coming back. They'll miss Marcus Curry. Not sure about the other three who were seniors.

Those will be good wins for whichever teams win those games. Good to see these teams scheduling each other. I expect Guilford to be the pre-season pick to win the ODAC.

Emory has posted their scheduled for next season:

Emory plays a host of regional non-conference opponents.

They will end non-conference play at home with UW-Oshkosh and Guilford.  Notably, Emory will play Guildford twice in the Fall 2019.

Those will be challenging games for Emory --  UWO being reigning national champs and Guilford losing by 3 to UWO in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in March. Guilford will probably be better this season.

Heard from my younger brother that Brayden Gault from Belmont Abbey transferred to RC

Roanoke or Randolph?

Oh. Well, no big deal. I'll stick with my #1 and your #10 and since I don't know the players like you do I'll just leave my guesses in place but assume my #s 2-9 are off -- though I may accidentalyy have put a couple of them in the same spot you will.

Okay, I'm going to take a stab at the order of the hopefan pre-season rankings:

10) Prin
9) Iowa Wes
8) Mac
7) Blackburn
6) Westminster
5) Fontbonne
4) Spalding
3) Eureka
2) Greenville
1) Webster

You provided #10. I think #1 and #2 are pretty easy, as are #8 and #9 (though they might be reversed). But 3-7 could go a number of different ways. You can offer up some teasing comments, hopefan, to get me second guessing myself, but I'll gladly wait for them to be revealed over time.

Interesting SLIAC-ARC Classic is scheduled.... Fontbonne and Westminster travelling to Buena Vista to play Buena Vista and Simpson on Nov 15, 16....

Coaches Thornhill and Mitchell probably set this up so they could hit the links on that Saturday Morning... though it could be a tad chilly ;D ;D

Westminster lost at home to both BV (by 7) and Simpson (by 6) last season. FU didn't play either. This is a good scheduling move for Fontbonne.

I hope and assume that all of the ODAC's football schools and head coaches are on board with this Neptune Bowl. It makes no sense otherwise.

Sad news:

"The SLIAC would like to pass along its condolences as former commissioner Rich Meckfessel passes away. Meckfessel, 2011 SLIAC Hall of Famer, oversaw addition of FAR role to governing body ,Post Graduate Scholarship & brought back conference tournaments."


"Rich Meckfessel, former Commissioner of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference passed away on Wednesday due to complications from a recent surgery. Meckfessel served as SLIAC Commissioner from 2000-07 and his tenure is the longest in conference history at the commissioner position. Meckfessel was just the second commissioner in league history and helped oversee the expansion of the league to 10 members when Eureka College and Lincoln Christian College joined in 2006.

"He also headed up the addition of the Faculty Athletics Representatives position to the SLIAC primary governing body. Meckfessel also created the SLIAC Operating Manual and established the SLIAC Post-Graduate Scholarship, which was unique in Division III at the time (2002-03). Meckfessel also oversaw the reinstitution of Conference Tournaments in team sports in 2004-05. Meckfessel represented the SLIAC and the Central Region on the NCAA Division III Men's Tennis Committee and was a respected member of the Division III Commissioner's Association. He was inducted into the SLIAC Hall of Fame in 2011."

I was going to ask hopefan for a summary of his ten write ups about the past five conference seasons, then thought he'd done enough work. So I've done one. But if hopefan wants to add or correct anything, that would be great.

10. Iowa Wesleyan -- 40-49 all under Huisman -- 10-26 the past two seasons
9. Fontbonne -- 31-59 -- 20-52 the past four seasons under Thornhill; 11-7 five ssasons ago under Hall
8. MacMurray -- 42-48 all under Creal
7. Principia -- 30-60 -- 25-29 the past theee seasons under Zimmerman; 5-31 previous two seasons under Bushong.
6. Spalding -- 45-45 all under Gray.
5. Blackburn -- 43-57 -- 38-34 past four seasons under Kollar; 5-13 five seasons ago under Baribeau
4. Westminster -- 46-44 all under Mitchell
3. Euteka -- 49- 41 all under Wilde
2. Webster -- 59-31 all under Bunch
1. Greenville -- 64-26 all under Barber; 54-18 the past four seasons since going to The System
