Just read the Berry write up and it confirms the 2017 starters at QB & RB, both All-Conference, are not returning for 2018.

Easily fixed -- thanks for the heads-up. Email works better than a message board post.

If true, the forecast for a second consecutive SAA championship is somewhat surprising with only 10 returning starters and Hendrix bringing back almost everyone including their all-America QB.

The loss of those two players is surprising and concerning.  However the arrival of the transfer RB is promising.  Also, the new starting QB played a lot last season and is a talented senior.  I think we will be ok.

Interesting to see the Berry SID AD leave for a similar position at non-football playing Oglethorpe.

Looking at TLU's roster, looks like they have quite a few coming back.  Coaching staff did a great job last year rebounding from the tough year before.  Does look like the coaching staff has changed some this year.  Hopefully those changes keep them on track.

I don't think it's surprising. A school needs to fund its SID position well if it wants to keep people around.

Mr. Brooks was the AD, not the SID

Time for some football!

Week 1 Schedule:
Thurs, 8/31 ->
Trinity at McMurry
LaGrange at B-SC
Millsaps at Belhaven
Sat., 9/1 ->
Sewanee at Kenyon
SW Assemblies of God at Austin
Maryville at Berry
Hanover at Centre
Illinois Col. at Rhodes
Lyon at Hendrix

So... interesting games of the week?   I'm thinking Maryville at Berry to see if the Vikings can continue last season's success.    Followed by Lyon at Hendrix to see what Hendrix has for this season. 

Of course, will watch Sewanee at Kenyon...

Trinity has to break in a new QB this season, and I have no idea who it will be.   There are two guys, one a junior, the other a soph who have 12 career passes between them, a junior who is a converted defender/occasional punter, and two freshmen.  My guess is that there will be an emphasis on running the ball early in the season  ;D

Heading into the 4th, Trinity up 37-0 at McMurry.  No, that is not a typo as the Tigers are getting it done in the air and on the ground with over 400 yards offense through three.
