Had Franklin not lost to Manchester for the first time since any of the current players were born, they'd be in control of their playoff destiny. They could have finished 6-1 and been tied with either Hanover or Rose and had the tiebreaker. Instead the playoff spot will be decided in Terre Haute this week.

Again, just like the Manchester game, the FC coaching staff with horrible play calling.  They don't appear to want to win this game.

Hanover with 2 TD in the final 3 minutes of the 1st half and they're 30 minutes from the playoffs. Almost a 3rd when they returned the hail mary for a TD but a roughing the passer penalty keeps the points off the board and a possible injury to the Rose QB. It's 28-6 at halftime.

The last time Franklin scored only 10 points, you have to go back to the 2013 playoffs when they lost 33-3 to UW-Whitewater. The last time a conference opponent did it was the 2004 Bell Game which Hanover won 24-7.

Anderson at Manchester tomorrow in last game at Carl Burt Stadium, formerly called Kenapocomoco Field (the Potawatami name for the Eel River flowing beside it).  Since 1924, 95 years of football has been played on that ground, by players including MC's Herb Banet (Green Bay Packers) and Don Lieberum (NY Giants) coached by Burt on powerful teams in the 1930's, Bluffton's Elbert Dubenion (all-pro, Buffalo Bills) in the '50's, MC's Mike Kelly (U. Dayton NCAA Hall of Fame coach) and  Franklin's Terry Hoeppner (Miami and IU coach) in the '60's. The new facility is under construction nearby.

Rivalry day is here... Victory Bell, Bronze Ball, Battle for the Hammer. Two non-conference games against teams at opposite ends of the spectrum but headed to the playoffs. Rose with a tough test at St John's while Mount heads east to SUNY Maritime who would enter the tournament with a losing record if the Lions win.

What on earth happened in NY? Mount St Joseph put up 166 total yards and less than 20 minutes of possession in an 11-9 loss to SUNY Maritime.

Franklin almost took down Hanover. Panthers with a TD with a minute and a half left. The Victory Bell stays in Hanover for a 2nd year 27-21

Defiance gets their first win of the season and win the Battle of the Hammer for the first time in 4 years and second time this decade 10-7 over Bluffton.

Scoreboard operators in Manchester had their work cut out with the Spartans holding the Bronze Ball for the 9th year in a row in a 70-54 win over Anderson.

A couple 4th quarter TDs make the score a little closer but Rose was beaten handily by St John's 47-14.

Hanover gets screwed and heads to Mount Union for the first round. Let's see how much better they fare than Rose did to begin the season.
Hanover and Wabash should have been swapped in the bracket, it wasn't a mileage issue so don't know what the committee was doing there. 7-3 Wabash heads to North Central while 9-1 Hanover heads to Mount. >:(

Tell me about it. I thought Aurora should've gotten a bit better of a matchup instead of going to St. John's.

Hanover was lucky to escape with the W.  Franklin came to play, and had a good game plan and matched up well.  I haven't looked at the stats, but I wonder how many yards the Griz had in the fourth quarter.  Everyone in the stands knew who was getting the ball, but Hanover didn't seem able to stop the big runs.

Coach Leonard is stepping down as HC.

Is this a surprise or was it expected now/near future?  Leonard did one heck of a job at Franklin.  Big shoes to fill.
