Triple Take, Our second wind

Sixteen teams are left, but half of them come from just four conferences.

The CCIW, MIAC, NJAC and OAC each went 2-0 last week.

Pat Coleman, Keith McMillan and Ryan Tipps continue the countdown to Salem, once more not picking just the winners but the scores as well.

And, worth being said again from last week, these postseason Triple Take predictions are not intended to be lines on the games, but rather a broad test of outcome vs. expectations.

Let’s see what’s to be said about Round 2:

Wesley Bracket
Ryan: Wesley 31, Montclair State 17
Keith: Wesley 24, Montclair State 14
Pat: Wesley 24, Montclair State 13

Keith: Mary Hardin-Baylor 35, Thomas More 28
Pat: Mary Hardin-Baylor 49, Thomas More 21

Mount Union Bracket
Ryan: Mount Union 42, Delaware Valley 14
Keith: Mount Union 31, Delaware Valley 21
Pat: Mount Union 42, Delaware Valley 10

Ryan: Alfred 21, Cortland State 13
Keith: Cortland State 20, Alfred 17
Pat: Cortland State 23, Alfred 21

St. Thomas Bracket
Ryan: Linfield 38, St. Thomas 27
Keith: St. Thomas 28, Linfield 27
Pat: Linfield 31, St. Thomas 30

Ryan: Bethel 21, Wheaton 20
Keith: Wheaton 24, Bethel 23
Pat: Wheaton 30, Bethel 21

  1. Looks like a good chunk of closer games. Looking forward to it!

    Good luck and safe travels to everyone this weekend. I’ll be at Perkins Stadium, tootin’ my horn once again for a UW-Whitewater victory.

  2. I’m sorry, but UMHB will not win by that close of a margin and they won’t give up that many points. Our D is playing much better and our offense is poised!

    UMHB 31
    Thomas Moore 14

  3. Book it!! MHB and North Central will both win next week. The mighty Purple Raiders will be waiting for whomever in the finals!

  4. Wishful thinking, 50?

    I guess even though Ryan was 7-1, I was 6-2 and Pat was 5-3 last week — respectable performances all — we almost have to consider ourselves wrong on UMHB and Wesley because those games weren’t even a little bit close.

    I’m pretty sure I’m historically gutless. I pick close scores, not because I’m afraid to upset anyone, but because I usually see what both teams do well and I’m an optimist so I figure each side will have a little success. Sometimes I miss by a mile on those 🙂
