  • 2011 D2 Football thread: Or how I still hate Trev Alberts!!!!

    Hell, almost forgot things kick off this week. Bemidji State faces off with Minot State in the Beaver Bowl tomorrow at 8 pm EDT. As far as I can tell, they are the first in all of the NCAA to kick off this year.

    And for those of you wanting the National Rankings.....

    D2Football.com Top 25 Preseason Poll
    August 22, 2011

    Rank Team 2010 Record
    1 Minnesota-Duluth 15-0
    2 Delta State 11-4
    3 Abilene Christian 11-1
    4 Grand Valley 11-2
    5 Northwest Missouri 12-2
    6 Texas A&M-Kingsville 10-2
    7 Shepherd 12-2
    8 Central Missouri 11-3

    22 Washburn 8-4
    23 Colorado Mines 9-3
    24 Wayne State (Mich.) 9-2
    25 Nebraska-Kearney 9-2

    And I do have it on a pretty good source that Michigan Tech was a team receiving votes as well for the preseason.

    And yes, figure on there being a few odd rants and ravings about Trev and his gutless call to kill off UNO football and Wrestling.

      Tech's votes come mostly due to returning the majority of what was the GLIAC's best defense last year. With Short gone, the starting QB still needs to be sorted out.

      I'll say 8-3, with road losses to Wayne and GV for sure.

        Northern Colorado lost it to Nebraska-Omaha 15-3 on 10-24-98
        Nebraska-Omaha lost it to Northwest Missouri 28-14 on 11-21-98
        NWMSU was the current holder of The Man title, so that game unified the title.

        Minnesota-Duluth now currently holds the title of "The Man" now. I'm pretty sure I had all of the dates from 1988 to 1990 filled out, but I can't currently find that research I had from them and this was the most up to date copy of the list I had. I used this website here.... http://michigan-football.com/ncaa/ncaa_ii.htm and I pretty much used that site from there on to determine "The Man". It does get harder to figure out when teams moved up back then, but usually poking thru their older media guides will give you the dates you need, and you also might fight the info to confirm what division a school was when it played somebody who my have been a holder of the title belt then. If anybody can fill in those missing dates or track it back from an earlier champion, it would be a big help as well. In theory here, all NC winners were the Man, even if it was just an interim title.

        And one of these days I will get it back to the 1975 NMU Wildcats. Even if I have to listen again to some of the old GVSU alumni rattle on about how they cheated in that game against them that year.

          Replacing Short does seem to be the big issue for Tech this year. Short was a dangerous bugger back there, and last year helped to prove that.

            Re: 2011 D2 Football thread: Or how I still hate Trev Alberts!!!!

            I'm certainly not an expert on the comings and goings at D2 football teams across the country, but based on the knowledge I do have of NSIC teams and after browsing through my first ever copy of the D2 football preview magazine that D2football.com puts out, here is what my gut is telling me.

            UMD will beat Augustana, but lose on the road to St. Cloud.
            St. Cloud will win the NSIC North, Auggie will win the rest of their games and take the NSIC South and those two teams will share the overall conference title.
            GVSU will come out of Super Region 3 and lose to Delta State in the National Title.

            Of course what I WANT to happen is for UMD to have another undefeated Nat'l Title season, but I would also be happy in the SCSU football finally won the school's first National Title in any sport. I am a paying UMD season ticket holder for the first time (Got free tickets to SCSU as a Husky Pup and to UMD as a student) and I'm pumped for the season to start!

                      Looking at our schedule, I know that I predicted 8-3, but I could just as easily see 7-4, or even worse if injuries pop up (hopefully not as badly as two years ago). On that note, excuse me while I go grab my 5 lb. bag of sand.

                      As for QBs, supposedly our redshirt freshman Tyler Scarlett has a similar skillset to Short, but junior Ray Wojtala is older and has more reps. I'd surmise that he is the QB to start the season, and potentially loses the job to Scarlett if he isn't up to snuff. We had a similar situation with Drew Schaft and Steve Short my sophomore year, and you can see how that worked out - Short was the QB by Game 3.

                        A Five pound bag of Sand?? A Northwest Missouri State fan would laugh at that!

                        NWMSU fans are the worst Sandbaggers of D2F.

                              I agree with FTLT that St. Cloud beating UMD isn't that much of a stretch, and I also think that picking the #2 team to beat the #4 team in the championship isn't a particularly bold prediction.
