Mixed bag this weekend.  The offense is looking more solidified and that was Wyatt's best game under center, IMO. 

The defense has been outstanding all year but man they had a couple of bad breakdowns that cost them.  Of course I didn't want L&C to get that garbage time TD but it doesn't really matter.

Our special teams were both awesome and terrible as well.  Willy killed it on those long field goals, the kick return for TD but then they gave up the kickoff TD and I swear we have a penalty on every punt return.  It's incredibly frustrating. 

I'm still holding my breath the final four weeks.  Linfield could easily take care of business and be 7-2 or this team could sputter and get into four tight games as well.

After watching PLU this weekend Iíd take whatever odds Vegas is willing to give you on Linfield finishing 7-2

Does that mean you think PLU is the best team Linfield will face the rest of conference? I doubt it. GFU, UPS and Pacific seem to get feisty from time to time.

Blue - I think those 4 teams clump together into one big 'meh', and 509 has said something similar recently. PLU lost badly to Whitworth, but beat Pacific and went into overtime with UPS. GF lost to Pacific (and Redlands). All pretty average joes...

What d-train said. And I mean no offense to PLU, but they are down from years past. I canít remember if I first posted my thoughts on the conference before or just after the Whitworth v Linfield game but I really donít think Iíve seen anything to change my opinion of the conference/teams.

Good! Finally a LINFIELD guy on the d3football.com Team of the Week.
It may be antiquated news but I believe the SID nominates for their team.

K Willy Warne
Jr., Linfield

Warne made a career-long 54-yard field goal, the longest made field goal in the NWC this season. He made from 26, 42 and 54 yards (missing from 46) and hit four extra points in a 43-26 win over Lewis & Clark.

Love the ice-cold take. Straight outta, what, 2011?

D3football.com now features an all-time list of Team of the Week honorees, so you can see for yourself when the last time Linfield had a player on the team, how many times it's happened in 2018, 2017, etc.:

SIDs have to nominate.  Pat doesn't go looking.  There's an online process that all SID's have access in order to make weekly nominations.

high of 60, partly cloudy, 10% chance of rain in Tacoma tomorrow. The Loggers don't/can't run the football so I guess my first thought of, they probably want to muck this one up to have a shot, probably isn't true. UPS will have to outscore Whitworth through the air which seems like an awful thing for them to try and do but what choice do they have?

George Fox will be lucky to score more than 7 points against Linfield tomorrow. I think the Wildcats shore up some of those defensive breakdowns from last week and not to mention Fox has 3 QBs, non of whom can throw the football. I can't believe I'm saying this but Linfield's defense will get a little bit of a break going from L&C to Fox...

Lewis and Clark's defense will be the problem against Pacific. I think the Pios need to jump on the Boxers early if they want to win. Otherwise, Pacific grinds one out.

PLU gets to feel good about themselves one week after getting Kavanaugh'd by Whitworth. Willamette is bad, and while PLU is down, they haven't fallen to the same depths as the Bearcat program. Seriously, what the heck happened in Salem?
