    Oh what could have been for Wayne State. I watched their game against Bemidji and just thought to myself, what a bunch of ill timed/advised penalties......

    Congrats to Coach Johnny Mac and Wayne St. Nice to see another branch of Coach T’s coaching tree going well. He was a great QB for the Bearcats under Mel.

    I think I'm in agreement with the stance of you peeps here. Wayne isn't getting enough credit for their wins.
    Probably has something to do with that they’re a “newly” good team instead of giving the benefit of the doubt to the historically good programs.

    Agree completely. Coaches just look at records and rarely go any farther than that. Because Duluth lost to Wayne at home I think they should be ranked below Wayne.

    Also, being in the North Duluth benefits from a fairly soft schedule which helps keep them in the rankings year after year. They haven't lost a North division game since losing to the Wolves in 2015. During that same time frame they've had 12 other losses, all to South division or non-conference foes. Coaches don't look at things like this when filling out the rankings.[/QUO

    Amen brother! The NCAA should have the D2 columnist be the official rankers, they're students of the D2 world.

    Same with SMSU - though I already know the outcome of that one.

    Definitely deserves to be.

    It's looking like 8-3 will be the absolute worst case scenario through the rest of the season - with losses to AU and USF. They won 7 games the last two seasons combined, and haven't won 8 since 2009. They've also shown themselves to be beyond capable of beating teams of that caliber though, so maybe they win out and go 10-1.

    They aren't my team, but I'm kinda rootin' for them honestly. The fine folks of Wayne are overdue for something like this.

    Good thing that will sort itself out this weekend. All depends on which Sadler shows up. I spent some time looking into Wayne. It's cool their top producers/tacklers are local or at least Midwest. Builds a comradery that's hard to beat. I'll be pulling for them after this week.
    Regardless of what happens, I expect it to be a close and competitive game. Definitely one to watch.
