Just got word that CWRU gets Drew Saxton, QB, South Fayette.

Definitely looks like CWRU is looking forward to adding him to the roster; he's the first player they've announced on social media:  https://twitter.com/CWRUFootball/status/976903676034940935

Also, CWRU picked up a speedy DB from the Chicago-metro...a definite upgrade on speed if that metric listed is correct: https://www.hudl.com/profile/4566511/Colin-Schuster

So, unable to find a suitable new home in the NCAA Thomas More is moving to the NAIA Mid South conference in 2019-2020.  I’m sure TMC is happy to get this resolved.

May move... still a chance they stay in DIII. They need to find a new home in the next year, but have left the door open. This is basically a final resort option with the NAIA.

CWRU football twitter page is again welcoming and announcing each incoming freshman individually, highlighting their home state, position, and size:

Is its just me, or does this year's class seem a bit taller than past years?   And I wonder when the complete list of newcomers will be released?

They've really been teasing us with one a day. CMU posted its full class today. Yep a lot of height one 6'6, three 6'5, and one 6'4 so far out of 24 frosh-to-be.

^ Agreed.

Good luck to a safe, fun, and injury-free trip to the CWRU football team as they play the Milano Rhinos:

After the 2015 trip Spartans went 7-3. 9-1, 11-1.

In 2015 there was streaming of the game.  I looked at the Rhinos' website and the game isn't even mentioned.

CWRU game vs Rhinos Milano

^ Welp, I wonder if we have our QB.  And it sounds like he’s got some wheels:

“...quarterback Ryan Coolidge ran for 42-yards, to inside the Rhinos 10-yard line...”

In some other surprising news,

Interesting:

New job is at an NAIA school with no football program. TMC seemed to be on a roll, and not just athletically. Seems like a strange time to move, but Miami vs Cincinnati could make it easier, and a new challenge is always exciting.

or perhaps a new challenge with more preferable challenges?

SaintsFan,

At TMC there will be challenges for the athletic program such as winding their way through 18/19,then transitioning to...... Clearly these challenges will not exist in FL unless The Prez has some new ideas.

Are there some off the field challenges he would prefer not to deal with? Certainly understand if you choose not to discuss, or are unaware of any. Since he signed a contract extension in 2016 taking him until (or through) 2022, and the recent progress at TMC - new programs, student body growth, as well as athletic success, the timing of this move seems a little strange, but as the TV show lead in used to say....”There are 8 million stories in the naked city, and this is one of them”

Congrats to the TMC winning the PAC Men’s all sports trophy. That baseball win against W&J apparently made the difference. Nice way to go out. Nice words from both coaches afterwords complimenting each other’s program.

Hope you will continue to follow the PAC Board and let us know how things are going for TMC. As I’ve said before, we lived in Cincinnati for a long time and have followed TMC, especially once they joined the PAC. I expect I’ll continue to follow them. Still get the Cincy paper on line.

I haven't heard anything about this, but I think your first sentence could be 100% on the money. 

The school in Florida is not on probation and probably has a clear vision of the future while the future at TMC is undecided, presently.

Clearly TMC wants to stay in DIII and I’m glad they found a home. In addition to football this leaves a bunch of other sports to try to set up schedules as independents. Travel also will be tough.

I thought the NAIA move had some advantages for TMC, but the ability to stay in NCAA apparently trumped all that. Gives them time to find a “better” home.

So, football appears to be set for 2018. What do you think might be next?

edited: or perhaps they are still headed to the NAIA and this is just part of the transition plan.
