Is ANYbody out there? I thought that I'd get some discussion going related to the pre-season poll.... I know it's winter, but, let's get the Hot-Stove League going.

Sorry, BP, but at least until the Tigers' pitchers and catchers report to camp, I just can't get into baseball.  Way to much basketball still on tap.

It's good you started this early Big Poppa! I know it has always been the North Division winning the MWC and The Knights are favored with the Red Hawks losing some of its power stroke with the graduation of Polcyn and seniors as well.  Are the Knights senior loaded this year ? How about those senior laden teams from the South especially Cornell and Grinnell? Do they have the weapons to finally dethrone the North? Cornell gave the Redhawks a run for their money last year during the MWC tournament.
