It will be an interewsting CCIW race this season. IWU looks to be loaded again. Carthage will be there in the end, they always are.

It will be interesting to see what Carthage puts on the field this season as this is the first season since they let their long-time assistant/recruiter, Brian Mosher, go. Augie Schmidt is a quality coach, but it always helps when you start with quality players.

North Park has a new coach who did not have the benefit of a full season of recruiting and is coming off a 1-39 season. Expect them to weigh down the conference for at least one more season.

Any other insights into the conference?

People at NPU are really high on new coach Luke Johnson, a former Elmhurst and North Central assistant who was a star for Elmhurst during his playing days. But, yeah, it's going to take him awhile to make the program competitive again.

Luke Johnson will do great things for that program, but I agree that it is going to take awhile to get things on the right track.

Anybody have any pre-season predictions for the conference?

Here is how I see it:
1. IWU
2. Carthage
3. Elmhurst
4. Augustana
5. NCC
6. Millikin
7. Wheaton
8. North Park

I hope that the new NP coach can get them some win right away and get them out of the bottom of the conference!

Anybody in the CCIW have a great year recruiting?

Who are the players/teams that we will all hear about in May that are not on the radar yet?

Augie Schmidt was also the Golden Spikes (National POY) winner in 1982...pretty good player, and a pretty good coach too.

He was stuck for years in Triple A while Tony Fernandez played SS for the Bluejays.

Augie was traded to the Giants. He wasn't always stuck in the Blue Jays organization.

Now this is a chat board!!!!!!

I just noticed your tag line at the bottom(It's Redmen, not Red Men). I love it. As a former REDMAN my self(Actually played for Augie Schmidt), I was somewhat upset by the change, but understood why it had to happen.

Scrappy-

Thanks, I am also a former Redmen (only 1 year removed). I played football but I supported the Carthage baseball team. I have many friends that were or still are on the team. Baseball is my number 2 love behind football. I love the stats in baseball. So many to look at and compare. I played baseball from when I was 6 until my sophmore year in high school, tryouts. I tore my shoulder up during the tryouts. So then I put my abilities into football. I love the game and I am really looking forward to watch Augie and his crew this year.

P.S. The left field area is the best place to watch games @ Carthage  ;)

When I played, the DONS and SIGS would throw tailgate parties just behind the fence in left-center... I am sure that they still do. Our dads always seemed to wander out that way between games to have a few beers with the college guys and scope out the young ladies. Probably not much different than today.

Yeah, that was the worst part of playing a weekend series at Carthage.  We'd have to sit there in cold, windy Kenosha while usually losing and also having to watch the students in LF have a good time and use the "liquid warmth" method to stay warm.
