The 07 campaign marks the last year of the IBFC, does anyone have any thoughts on an All-Century IBFC?  Below are my thoughts.  As you can tell the O-Line category is a little difficult.  Most of the nominees were All-Americans, All-Region or POYs.

QB - Kevin Fix LC
RB - Jamie Lee Mac
RB - Manny Mills CUW
TE - Bryan Meier GC
OL - Curtis Fisher Mac
OL - Bryon Megli AU
OL - ?
OL - ?

WR - Darryl DeShields GC

QB - Kevin Fix LC



The QB has to be Mark Novara from Lakeland - he owns the Lakeland record book. Over 11,000 career passing yds (Fix had 6250), the top three passing seasons in LC history and #1 in completions in a game, season and career, the top 3 spots in yards in a game and #1 in TDs in a season and career.

I have a nomination...

Todd Black, WR CUC (Concordia College when he was here)

Black played only two years at Concordia and holds nearly all the single game marks, not many career marks because he was only there for two years.  But he was an All-American and later played for the Chicago Bears under Mike Ditka for two years.

And what about Olindo Mare from MacMurray, or were they not part of the conference then? 
(P.S. He is on my fantasy football team)

I guess I should have been more specific when it comes to the time frame.  The IBFC became a D3 conference only in 98 and thus I am looking for players from the 98 season to the present.  Before 98, the conference consisted of NAIA, D2 and D3 schools.

FatalImpact,

I don't think I would put Nick on the list as he wasn't ever the OL of the Year.  Was he even 1st team All-Conf?

Fishguy,

I believe Novara preceded the the new IBFC, but certainly correct me if I am wrong.

Anyone else have any suggestions.

I think he was first team all conference for like 2-3 years, just cause he wasn't the OL of the year doesn't mean he wasn't a reat OL, he was like the second coming of Bryon megli at AU, he deserves to be on your all time list, plus you can only pick one OL per year, doesnt mean there weren't other great OL, plus some of that stuff gets political, HE DESERVES IT

Anthony Ballerino 2004 WR of the Year

stats 85 catches 1084 yards 11 touchdowns, he should be on the All-IBFC Team
 
   A solid selection. But for accuracy sake it`s 1074 yds not 1084.
   As you stated #10 was also selected as the Wr of the year in the IBFC
   in 2004.  Sole selectee. No tie.
   He also was selected  twice (2) for the Div-3 Team of The Week. That
 really stands out  when you think of how many schools are playing D-3 football. About 220+.
   The Div-3, NCAA statistics for 2004 rank #10 as follows:
  (1)  Receptions per game: 3rd in the Nation.
   (2)  Receiving yards per game: 10th in the Nation.
   (3)  All purpose yards.............: 47th in the Nation.
     Also selected 3 times to the IBFC all Conference Team.  Twice (2) as 1st
    team WR.  Two year (2) selection as a Team Captain by his peers. Holds several  school and career football records as well.
    Won every award that the MacMurray gives out for football. Plus
    his over-all 4 year totals are impressive as well. 
    It`s a given, anytime an "ALL" anything is presented ( by
     WhatDoIKnow), not all agree with
    who gets selected for what but in this case I believe #10`s credentials
     (facts) speak for themselves
    . While your selections are certainly credible,   I don`t believe they
     exceed #10`s.   :)

I also think at the Qb spot you have to consider....Ryan Mauri LC and Drew Hornung, I believe at one time both were slated as the Off Player of the year in different years.....both definitely made their teams better and were exceptional QB's not to take away from anyone else....just sayin' they ought to be considered.

Kurt Barth- WR Eureka College

256 rec., 4,311 yds. from 1994-97

Barth was a multiple time All IBFC conference pick, Gagliardi finalist and broke the D3 career rec. yardage record in '97. Currently he is #5 on the all time list. #6 on career Rec TD List

I would think you would have to include him on the list...

Saturday, Sept 29th.
   
   (1) Greenville at Aurora:  Both have an "over-all"record of 1-2.
         I think the wheels came off Greenville last week when they lost to LC.
      Much was expected of GC but they didn`t come through. Aurora on the
     other hand beat up on a very bad MacMurray.  Hard to tell who is the
      better of the two but I think GC gets to help sing the Aurora fight song.
       Aurora.
   (2)  Baby Cheese Heads at BU:  Both are 1-3 over-all. LC got beat by some quality teams while BU got beat by CU-C.   
       BU will make a game of it only because they show up. Lakeland is in no mood to lose to a team that got beat by the Cougars.
        The baby cheese heads will get lots of exercise running up and down the field and get to sing their fight song to the BU faithful.
       Baby Cheese Heads.
     (3)   Eureka at CU-C:  Eureka is 0-3 over-all while the Cougars are 2-2 over-all and tied for 1st place in the IBC.  There is no room for error here
    folks! 
    The Cougars are flying high and gaining momentum so this game is the
   most important one so far. Lose it and the free  fall starts!
    Believers get ready to sing the Cougar fight song.  While you can :)
    Cougars
    (4) Con,W at MacMurray:  MacMurray has a dismal 0-3 over-all record.
        While CU-W has a 2-2 over-all plus they are tied for 1st place in the
        IBC.
      As one poster said (para phase) why be surprised, they`re ( Mac) mostly
     freshmen. I wonder how many of these now freshmen will be back next
      year?  Mac could very well go 0-10. 
     CU-W is a far superior team both in coaching and athletes.  As far as the game is concerned, Mac should just sit in the stands and watch as no matter where they (Mac) are it will look and feel like a practice game to the
    bad boys from Mequon.
      CU-W may well start singing their fight song late in the 2nd quarter.
       CU-W.
    *****
      Late addition: Just noticed on "The Official Website of MacMurray College  Athletics":  Official no less!
      The date shown for todays game against  CU-W is listed
         as...............9/30, which is Sunday!  Maybe Mac thinks if CU_W see`s
     this they won`t show and Mac wins by forfeit.   If you can`t beat-um,
     trick-um . ;)

D-3 Scoreboard:

                  Eureka-20
                  CU_C-   7     at the half.

      The "Believers" better hope their Cougar doesn`t get de-clawed.
