Here's a piece of news:

http://www.news5cleveland.com/news/local-news/oh-stark/mount-union-quarterback-arrested-on-assault-warrant-out-of-florida

Wow - that's literally a game changer.

I think the biggest way it changes the game this weekend is that W&L has been watching the tape on the wrong guy. Now deeper in the tournament? Yeah, it could be significant.

We are assuming he isn't playing... no word on whether he will still be in custody or if the team plans to suspend him. Not saying it won't happen... but we await the news, as it where.

I think it's a legitimate assumption, but no. I haven't seen any more news. To be honest, if UMU needs their starting qb to beat W&L this week they aren't the contenders we think they are.

This would lead me to believe he's not playing:

Fulford is currently being held in Stark County Jail and is waiting for an extradition order from Florida, authorities said.

He has been released on bond... has waived an extradition hearing. We continue to wait to see what happens next and a decision from UMU.

As a member of the press you have to wait for confirmation from the school. I get that. But there is no way UMU is letting this young man step on the field tomorrow and, barring some serious tap dancing on the charges in FL, the rest of the season. The optics are just too bad.

My only thought on that... is what exactly is the charge he is up for... the quote in the story is "involved an incident relating to assault." That is wide open. While I tend to agree with you, I also wonder if it depends on the exact nature of the charge(s) or investigation.

Story was slightly updated. It was posted on the OAC boards. Something related to hazing and battery. You don't extradite for speeding tickets. "The UCEA allows the arrest of fugitives in a state accused of a crime in another state for which the penalty is at least one year in jail." Key word is of course accused. But at least a one year jail term means more than speeding tickets.

Not sure what is being said in the OAC board because I can only do so much today, but I agree that speeding tickets don't tend to be arrestable, but at the same time... it is usually what happens after the speeding tickets... i.e. if you have a suspended license and what not, that can become an arrestable offense. But ... going down a rabbit hole without enough information.

I know weather played a factor at IWU and North Central, but all of the teams should know cold, rainy or snowy Novembers, so I was a little stunned that IWU and St. John's had very little for their opponents. Quite surprised Witt laid an egg and allowed Frostburg to run right over them, and Trine looks like they're going to give Wartburg fits.

If Husson can keep the ball for most of an entire quarter against Delaware Valley, they'll have a chance for a huge upset. I wouldn't count 'em out. And I was as shocked as anyone that RPI was hanging around for so long.

For all the talk about it being a bit unfair to Hardin - Simmons, they certainly didn't back up any gripes they may have had. This Linfield squad may have been ripe for a first round loss.

For the most part, a great start to week one.

This week could have several lower seeded teams winning.  Wesley/ Brockport, Frostburg/W&J, NCC/Oshkosh, Linfield/UMHB, and Trine/Wartburg look like toss ups or games that the away team would not surprise if they won the game.  I think Del Val, Mount, and St. Thomas may get challenged but any of them losing would be considered a major upset.  This could be a fun week of mayhem in D3.

I concur.
