Mutineers -- wow. Harsh! :)

Yeah, probably, Pat! My attempt at levity (poor). 🙂 Although, I was also relating somewhat today past history, as you know, since a couple of member schools have been reprimanded for not confirming to conference unity. One way before even my time, that of Hillsdale being kicked out of the league back in 1960 for playing in post season bowl games!

Wow I had to look it up to because I've never heard that story. https://i.imgur.com/yMKCZr8.jpg

Next question is: Hillsdale was called the Dales?

Yes they were the Dales until 1968.

Hillsdale's last MIAA football season was 1960, other than playing Olivet three times in 68, 69 and 75 neither the Dales or Chargers have played any other MIAA program in football since.  I don't think they've met much in any other sport either, and I do wonder if Hillsdale is considered sort of "off limits" for MIAA athletic directors.

Anyway, Hillsdale is full of characters and good stories.
