Below is a nice article on UST's offensive line. Some of these guys played D1 or D2 ball prior to transferring to UST. David Simmet received D1 interest from Wisconsin. Curtis James transferred from the Gophers and is currently training for the NFL. Marks had a full scholarship at SDSU. Woodrow and Payne received a lot of interest too. I had a conversation with a current SJU coach a few years ago about Woodrow. They wanted him real bad.

UST's 2012 starting o-line:

64 Luke Marks  FR OL 6-5 300 Mendota Heights/St. Thomas Academy
73 Ulice Payne III SO OL 6-3 311 Greenfield, Wis./Pius XI
74 T.J. Woodrow SO OL 6-4 284 Eden Prairie
75 David Simmet FR OL 6-9 340 Stillwater/Hill-Murray
77 Curtis James SR OL 6-3 304 Edina

do you mean five & dones like Blake Elliot et al? or 7 & dones like Ryan Keating?   IALTO too  ;D  I seem to remember SJU having a multitude of guys in their fifth season a decade or so ago.... but I'm sure that was quite different then... they all had injuries or transfered from somplace like NDSU, U of MN  or whatever, making it "legit"

although to be honest, every MIAC football program had at least a handful of fifth-year seniors in 2012 and the tend will only increase with the MIAC's change in eligibilty rules.

It used to be the MIAC didn't honor redshirts, only medical hardships. So if a player transferred from NDSU or UND after redshirting as freshman, they would lose that year of eligibility. Hence, the MIAC probably lost a decent number of DI/II transfers because they didn't want to give up the eligibility.

Now, the MIAC accepts those redshirt years, so a kid can transfer in and still have 4 years of playing in front of him.

I seem to remember that that 2003 team actually won a National Championship. Let's see what the Tom Cats can do.

The latest edition of MGA-Minnesota Golfer Magazine came in the mail yesterday. It had an article about Minnesota being a Division III powerhouse in golf and made mention of SJU #3 ranking (nationally) as well as GAC #7 & UST #10. It also mentioned the ladies teams form St. Olaf,GAC,UST & Carleton.
As of now they're on DOUBLE SECRET Probation!

35 this morning.  Downright balmy.  I've retired the winter jacket.  Time to plan the trip up to Lake Vermilion to cool off.

Oz,

The view in the Minneapolis area on the morning of April 18th.  The prior morning, it was bare grass!  This has been a horrendous spring in MN.  We're in another winter weather warning tonight!  :o

I feel for the MIAC spring sports... I couldn't imagine not being able to play games.

With respect to the weather, today's forecast calls for 92F with 0% chance of rain here in the desert. Aside from the scorching hot summers, weather here in Vegas is pretty nice.

My wife was in LV last week.  She said the weather was beautiful.  Then, she got home, and it snowed 10" here the next day!  :D
