So they open with a D2 program, then BSC plays one of their 4 first year programs, then they play another first year D3 program, then two legit opponents, another first year program, and the rest is a D3 schedule. Color me impressed that a first year program managed to do so well. Only one real outlier, Westminster, and then some assistance from other first year programs.

To be honest, I think the schedule looks better than whatever the scheduler at BSC was trying to do playing 4 first year programs, 2 of them not even D3...
D2 program? Westminster is D3.

Good catch Hawks88. Hendrix have a full D3 schedule. That's good work for a first year program. I was looking for Westminster on the D3 site under teams and didn't see them at the time, but they are clearly there now. Must be magic! I thought they were D3, but when I couldn't find them... Well, my wife would call it "man looking". She claims I do it a lot.

First-year D1-non scholarship (Pioneer League).

You have to remember the SAA split itself off and purposely formed with the teams it included. That means they excluded Trinity for a reason (choose your reason, I have my thoughts...). It makes no sense to EXCLUDE them from your conference and then schedule them Out of Conference as a game. If you were intending to play them, you would have invited them to your party in the first place.

And it's a long, costly trip, the other reason they dropped the SCAC.   

Hendrix' game v. Southwestern is in Arkansas; it will be interesting to see if they return the favor in 2014.

Thanks for the updates on Berry. Hendrix's stadium design has been out since Veterans Day, but a link wasn't posted here. As of today, the additional turf field looks nearly complete, and they've begun the foundation for the stands.

It doesn't look like the Hendrix players will have to play in the headlights of their fans' cars, either.  :-)

(Hendrix President Cloyd initially said that there would be no need to build a stadium for Warrior football, that bleachers would be a blanket and lawn chairs, etc.  This looks like a very nice D3-appropriate facility.)

Heard that Reid Heim was hired as DC...  The '00 Austin College linebacker has since had European football experience and US coaching that included 2 years at Baylor.  Congrats Reid!
