Somce most tecemt posts have been about CWRU thought Id add a little W&J perspective.

Here is the wikipedia page for Ray Ride, a legendary coach at Case:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_A._Ride#Head_football_coach

Here are the all time records for the CWRU entities from the W&J web site:


VS CaseCWRU W&J leads 18-17-1 First game in 1901
VS WRU W&J leads 13-7-0 First gane in 1896

That  is 56 meetings.

VS CMU CMU leads 32-30-6 first game in 1906.

Until CMU and CWRU returned to the PAC CWRU had not played W&J since 1985 while CMU had not played W&J since 1989. Wonder what the all time records would look like if CWRU, CMU and W&J had played during those years?

Regardless, it is great to see these long term well contested rivalries renewed.

I woke up this morning looking for kickoff.  Where do I go on the Web to find it?

I don't think it's up yet.  Try back about noon.  There's a link in the dropdown menu under the "News" tab.

I'm pretty sure that there will be a announcement on the landing page once it's up.

Cool stuff!  Thanks for sharing. 

Another interesting W & J / CWRU rivalry note was in 1984.  This was the year W & J finally broke back into being a top football team.  The W & J football wiki page states "Led by freshman running back A.J. Pagano, the Presidents qualified for the 1984 NCAA Division III playoffs, the team's first post-season appearance since the 1922 Rose Bowl."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_%26_Jefferson_Presidents_football#Resurgence_in_Division_III_(1982%E2%80%93present)

If you look back to that 1984 season, the Presidents (8-1) had only one loss to...drumroll...an undefeated Case Western Reserve (9-0) football team (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Case_Western_Reserve_Spartans_football_team)   Due to the regional structuring and only 8 teams in the college football playoff, Case Western Reserve was begrudging left out of the tournament.  Many say Case Western Reserve had as good a chance as anyone to win a national title that year if they were allowed into the tournament (1984 DIII playoffs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_NCAA_Division_III_football_season#Postseason)

Also, I came across along coach from a looooong time ago with mutual W & J and CWRU connections from back in the day of early college football...who won Western Reserve;s first two OAC conference titles:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_B._Seaman

Gang,

Kickoff is up and running.  Saw it in the afternoon!  My bad!

Still surprised to see us ranked so highly in pre-season.  Maybe they'll fool me!

I'll tell ya what's amazing.  Schools like Mt. Union have 200 players in camp.  Others like Oberlin have only 55.

I know that 55 is the number reported in Kickoff, and so the number that Oberlin gave as its roster size.  On the Oberlin football homepage, they list 42 on the 2018 roster.  This includes 5 returning offensive linemen, and 4/5 freshmen OL.  That's awfully skimpy to go into a season.

I don't know where else to put this:

91 FY's (176 total) reported to camp for TMC.  Kids from AL, OH, KY, IN, IL, LA, MI, NY, FL, GA, TN. 

There is at least one transfer who will be making an impact at WR. 

Plus Tre Tunstill is back at LB after missing all of last year - big bonus

The Saints need QB Justin Post to step up.  The entire OL returns. 

I think they are poised to make some waves in 2018:  They have a schedule to do just that.

John Carroll hosted Case Western Reserve in preseason tune ups:

Biggest shocker is that true freshman QB Drew Saxton is definitely getting reps with the 1st team.

this link might work better:

http://www.news-herald.com/article/HR/20180824/SPORTS/180829590

Thanks.  Figured out my error, and corrected my link.  Nothing wrong with having two working links. 

Well, here we are -- WEEK #1.

It'll be fascinating to see the depth charts once this week's game preview comes out.

The results against JCU are encouraging, but in the end, it's still just a scrimmage.

I'm sure that CWRU will do OK in the first few weeks, as the teams that they are facing don't seem particularly strong.

But I still say that a repeat conference title is a stretch.  Hopefully, they prove me wrong!

It appears that FY Drew Saxton will get the start for the Spartans

:o :o :o

Not to get too far ahead, but it's fascinating to think that's most likely a 4-year QB starter for the Spartans.

On a similarly shocking note, they're bringing back the halftime field goal kick:  https://athletics.case.edu/sports/fball/2018-19/releases/20180828efjebe
