You said, "Sounds like UPS may kick our butt in Tacoma"! Do you also play FedEx? How would you do against them? Just curious. Mount Union has never played either one. Go 'Cats! 😃☠🏈

Had a spare moment to watch a little L&C.  Much improved program. O-line is BIG but not light of foot.  The RB is a big kid and runs hard but not shifty.  QB is solid.  Their receiver, Heisman Hosoda, is a kid I would take on Linfield's roster right now.  The Pios do a good job in getting him opportunities and he's good after the catch.  The 6'6" Tight End hurt us last year and will be a dude the 'Cats will have to be aware of from the 30 in. The Williams kid is also a good receiver.

Defensively they do some funky stuff with alignments but have some good LBs. Lots of different pressures from different angles.

This will be a much stiffer test than Willamette, who is terrible.  To me it comes down to the 'Cats offensive line.  If they can move bodies and get the run game going then the 'Cats will eventually put it to bed.  If not, it will be a struggle.

MonroviaCat, no problem.   In this country, we all have the right to an opinion.   

I just want to see a Linfield team that comes close to the ones of the last 9 years.    Efficient offensive fireworks.    I support all Wildcat players and coaches.

Way to pique the interest of those wobbling, Wildcat11.

And you didn't even have to mention Coach Locey.
I did.
Now looking forward to tomorrow.

Interesting new poll:
Linfield is rated #24 with one loss to a D-3 team.
UW-Oshkosh is #12 with two losses to D-3 teams.
Wheaton is #23 with two losses to D-3 teams.
Eight teams with one loss are all rated higher than #24.

Sounds like the loss to an average NAIA team is hurting the Wildcats.

And, I bet Whitworth can beat some of those higher ranked teams!

Oshkosh only lost to one D3 team.  Their first loss was to Davenport, a D2 school.

Wheaton has two losses but also beat #15, North Central.  The Cats best win was over Redlands but then Redlands lost to Claremont making that win less impressive.

Go Cats!
