Too bad you can't suit him up. Tony could play.

Also, pretty shocking to think that the rest of the MIAC would act negatively towards Macalester, a founding member of the conference. One would think that founding member status should carry some cache.

Elegantly expressed sarcasm there, jamtod. ;)

The thing is, though, St. Thomas and Macalester are apples and oranges. And when you think about it, that's the crux of the issue, as the MIAC is a league of oranges ... and Macalester is one of the two shiniest and most-cachet-having oranges in the neighborhood. ;)

Mac is more of a prune when you think of football

Grinnell Hires a new Football Coach

https://pioneers.grinnell.edu/news/2019/12/27/brent-barnes-selected-to-lead-grinnell-college-football-program.aspx

That is good news. I'd like to know more details about how the programs he developed for recruiting helped at his most recent stop prior to this hire at Grinnell.

Cornell with a new football hire

That is a good hire. Pifer did a great job at Olivet after doing the same in his assistant's position at Trine an that excellent staff during their MIAA title runs just a few years ago. I am not exactly  sure, but I recall/it was my understanding he left Olivet for DII Walsh because of family ties in that area. Likewise, I do not know why he left Walsh after only one year as it was never explained on the university's athletic wedsite at the time. I suspect it was because of the opportunity to join the Bowling Green staff even though that was the off-field position of Director of Player Personnel, though probably with the possibility of moving into a coaching position in a year or two. Yet that was not to be as Scot Loeffler did not retain him as he brought in his own staff. I was not aware that Pifer had coached at Saline H.S. this past season.

Anyway, although I am slightly surprised he would move farther  west, again, I believe he will do a great job for Cornell-a good choice by them. He sounds really energetic and enthused about getting that program to the next tier. With his previous record, I believe that is a very good possibility. Good for Cornell.

SNC has lost its D line coach, Rob Davis, whose new gig is Assistant Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys. For those who may find that jump in stature a little curious, Davis was the Packers long snapper for many years while Mike McCarthy was the head coach, and had a job in Packers administration after his playing days were over.

It's also not unprecedented that a former Packer shows up on the SNC staff after deciding to settle in the GB area after their playing days are over. Ahman Green was listed as RB coach a couple seasons ago.

Grinnell will finish semester on-line.  Shutting down athletics for the rest of the semester.  Going to on-line learning and closing the campus.

Anyone hearing anything? Just heard that Beloit's incoming class...needs help. Not really a football post but a survival question.
