Game Day: An early look at purple

The state of Division III football is that Mount Union is forever December-relevant. But in September? Usually we can just presume that the Purple Raiders will get through the regular season unbeaten. (They’ve only lost one regular-season game in the history of, after all.)

Now UW-Whitewater has joined Mount Union in that echelon, we’re going to devote a little extra time to covering the two purple powerhouses. When our new site launches, you’ll see that on game day. But in the interim, heck, Mount Union is playing a game just five hours from one of our gurus. Shouldn’t we be there?

So when Neil Seaman makes his first start for the Purple Raiders on Saturday, and they debut a former Kent State regular at defensive tackle and another transfer at corner, sure, we want to be there to see what it looks like.

Great games in the Keystone State (that’s Pennsylvania, for those of you who haven’t seen the license plates) and out West, plus many places in between. Pat Coleman is at the Mount Union/UW-Oshkosh game. Keith McMillan is at Coast Guard/Merchant Marine (after taking in the Western Connecticut/SUNY-Maritime game Friday night), Gordon Mann is at Delaware Valley/Washington and Jefferson and Ryan Tipps is at North Carolina Wesleyan/Hampden-Sydney.
