Last week was quite the week in the MIAA with three games decided by five points or less and two more decided by two scores. This week appears to be a little less exciting matchup wise, but it is also a big week for a few teams in the conference.

I’d like to start this week’s column with some Northwest Missouri State talk because whether it’s good or bad, the Bearcats are maybe the most polarizing team in the conference. I can’t imagine many tears being shed around the MIAA as the Bearcats fell 33-13 to Emporia State last week.

Normally I’d say there’s a lot to unpack from week one of the MIAA season, but in reality, it was just the first week of the season. There were teams that showed a lot of promise and we were reaffirmed that the middle of the conference could go in any order—while there appears to be a clear bottom of the MIAA.

The season is quickly approaching and with that, we’re going to take a look at what one of the country’s premiere conferences has to offer for the 2023 season. On the football side of things, the MIAA loses what has been its worst team over the past few seasons in Lincoln.

Congratulations to Pittsburg State and Northwest Missouri on making the Division II Playoffs. I know Emporia State is disappointed in how their regular season ended but the Hornets got an invite to the Live United Bowl in Texarkana, Arkansas on December 3rd.
