TAG | UW-Oshkosh
Johns Hopkins either got a fine matchup or the shaft, depending on whom you ask.

When you don’t have to quibble about the 32 teams that made the field, that eliminates a lot of the Selection Sunday hand-wringing. Of course, just because we didn’t think Wabash, or UW-Oshkosh, or St. Thomas or others deserved to make the field doesn’t mean they didn’t have a case to be made. Pat and Keith discuss their cases. Did Johns Hopkins get screwed by having to face Wesley in the first round or is it a fair matchup? Where should Maryville have gone instead of Hampden-Sydney? What chance does Gallaudet have at Hobart? Which is the strongest bracket, and why?
There are so many questions at this time of year, (more…)

The Hampden-Sydney/Randolph-Macon game always draws a crowd. This year it’s also a winner-take-all game for the ODAC title.

If you’ve never been affiliated with a school that has an intense, no-love-lost rivalry, you’re missing out on one of the sweeter things in life. Because when game time comes, there’s something absolutely all-consuming about how you feel about your team and what you’d like to do to those on the “other team.”
Many teams will be feeling that this weekend, capping the season against their archrival. And if the playoffs are not on the horizon, Week 11 can spell one last chance to make the season memorable by taking home the Bridge Bowl Trophy or Monon Bell or Cortaca Jug or Regents Cup or any of the many other prizes out there.
This week highlights the rivalries, but there’s more to this week than that. With Selection Sunday coming up, there’s so much to play for.
Here’s what Pat, Keith and Ryan have to say about that:
Alfred · Baldwin-Wallace · Bethel · Bridgewater (Va.) · Catholic · Chapman · Cortland State · Hampden-Sydney · Hardin-Simmons · Heidelberg · Huntingdon · Iowa Wesleyan · Ithaca · John Carroll · Kalamazoo · Louisiana College · Maryville · Merchant Marine · Millsaps · Mount St. Joseph · Mount Union · Olivet · Randolph-Macon · Rhodes · Rowan · St. Lawrence · TCNJ · Thomas More · UW-Oshkosh · UW-Platteville · Wesley
Hardin-Simmons wasn’t a threat to Linfield, Willamette or UMHB but crushed Texas Lutheran.

So let’s see, John Carroll beat Heidelberg, handily, and Wittenberg handled Wabash. Meanwhile, Hardin-Simmons delivered a reality check to Texas Lutheran and Wesley beat a D-I FCS team. (You know, the level known as Division I-AA.) Did John Carroll play its way into the playoffs? Or perhaps we should give them more than just lip service next week vs. Mount Union. Keith talks about what he saw when he watched the John Carroll-Heidelberg game.
Keith and Pat look at the remaining 10 automatic bids and what it will take to win them. Plus a long look at Pool B and another long look at Pool C. That and (more…)
