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. >:(

Grizz,

Do you think Hanover would really benefit that much by getting sent to North Central? You never know what the NCAA is thinking or what they are likely to do, but sending HC to Naperville rather than Alliance would likely only have raised their chance of winning from 0% to 1%. Everybody acts like NCC’s one loss makes them an easy opponent. They forget that their one loss is to a #1 seed, and the nation’s #3 team, and that even with that one loss, they’re still ranked #5. And the HC trip to Naperville last year wasn’t exactly a rousing success.

By no means am I saying Hanover would go out and win had they gotten North Central, but Mount Union is clearly the higher seed between the two so they should have the worse opponent. And how can you possibly say Hanover is worse than Wabash this season? This wasn't even a case of having to shift several teams all around to make it happen, just flip Hanover and Wabash. It seems like the committee simply screwed that one up. Looking at the d3f bracket capsules, we've ended up with 1v6 and 4v8... switch Hanover and Wabash and you have 1v8 and 4v6.

Moot point now, but lets be honest.  Hanover isnt that good.  They benefited from more parity in the HCAC. Franklin is down. RHIT and MSJ are nearly identical to Hanover.  They had a nice season and won the conference.  Long way from a playoff team that gets to host etc.

Absolutely nobody thinks this.  Nobody anywhere has said anything to this effect or anything that even remotely toes the edge of this sentiment.

Okay, FCGrizzliesGrad and GRIZZ_BACKER:

What do you guys think about FC's new football head coach selection?  Do you think he will he keep most, if not all, of the current staff?

BTW, Merry Christmas to you and all the HCAC posters here.

Well, he has spent a number of years as an assistant under Lance Leopold at UWW and Buffalo so hopefully some of that success has rubbed off on him.
As far as the staff... no news yet. Nothing else is different on the coaches page other than HC. My guess is most of the staff will stay but we'll see.

cave2bens,
I know it's been a while since you posted here as you have been busy in your relocation. But, check your PM!🙂
