Well dammit. SNC loses to a WIAC in 2OT for the second consecutive year, this time 30-23 to Eau Claire

SNC was down 0-16 at half. Got a TD and went for 2 - which, I guess I get because if you aren't scoring, it makes it a one-score game - but didn't convert. That makes it 16-6 EC

SNC evntually tied it on a FG with just seconds left, so 16-16 into OT. But if they had kicked earlier, could have been for the win. Hindsight is 20/20 of course. But just adds to the disappointment.

Good Guys get back on track with a 24-18 win over #13 Wartburg.

HUUUGE win!

Gotta go for 2 there, especially with how ineffective the offense had been to that point. EC sure tried its best to give that game away though.

Ready for the season to get started. I think Monmouth could knock off Wheaton. I remember them knocking off Ill Wesleyan in the playoffs. Wartburg would need some things to go their way. I give Kudos to them for stepping up their non con schedule! Either way will prepare them for conference season.

Winning one of those would be big, not just for Monmouth but the MWC. So go win em both! Quit giving the football away so much like they did against Wartburg last year and the Scots got a chance. Then it's smooth sailing through the South till November.

The North will be a bit more of a scrum, but I expect another epic battle vs SNC for the playoffs in November!



Well, we got one of the two, which is good! A good win for the conference profile also. Not sure what to make of north at this point.

At this point I don't see much of a challenge from the North.

With the bye week happening not much to go on. Looking forward though to seeing the results in the cross division games to how teams are faring. A lot can change in two weeks.

FormerScot posted a roster breakdown for Monmouth a few weeks ago. In an effort to avoid work I did a quick tally for Lawrence (I only went by class not by state).

First year 28
Sophomore 17
Juniors 12
Senior 4

LU's first year class totaled 425 this year. Methinks I see the problem...

That's 10 more than they had last season!

Grinnell will bring fewer players on its entire roster (38) than SNC has freshmen Saturday. But the Pioneers are a scrappy bunch
