MVFC – Week 12 Preview

MVFC – Week 12 Preview
TweetThis is it folks. The final weekend of the regular season. Pretty much regardless of what happens, NDSU and SDSU will be in the playoffs and YSU, SIU, MSU, and INSU will not. For UNI, USD, WIU, and ILSU, it’s likely most of them will be, but there are some crazy scenarios that could play out that could exclude some... Read More

MVFC – Week 11 in Review
TweetThis week went down pretty much as expected, for the most part, without any real upsets. A few teams somewhat “outperformed” expectations, but the end results this week aren’t really a huge surprise. Let’s take a look at conference standings, where teams are in relation to a possible playoff spot or if that’s out of the picture for them. School... Read More

MVFC – Week 11 Preview
TweetWeek 11 in the FCS season…the penultimate weekend for all but 24 teams. Up to 6 MVFC teams could theoretically be playing after Thanksgiving. I don’t believe any conference has ever had 6 teams in the playoffs before, so that seems pretty unlikely, but stranger things have happened. Two of the games involve matchups of two teams that are in... Read More

MVFC – Week 9 Preview
TweetAnd then there were four…weeks left in the season, that is. As is often the case this time of year, nearly every game looks like it could have a huge impact in deciding who ends up playing after Thanksgiving and who gets to sit at home and eat turkey, dreaming about next year. There’s only two teams in the conference... Read More

MVFC – Week 8 Preview
TweetI apologize for being a little later than usual with my weekly preview post. In addition to being a fan of MVFC football, I’m also a Chicago Cubs fan, so my evening writing sessions have been somewhat constrained by watching Cubs games. In case you weren’t aware though, that won’t be a problem for me the rest of the season... Read More

MVFC – Week 7 in Review
TweetWeek 7 in the books and another interesting week in the MVFC. A couple of big “upsets”, a close game delayed by weather, and a “Game of the Week” that lived up to it’s billing, going to an exciting overtime finish. First up though, let’s take a look at conference standings, where teams are in relation to being set up... Read More

TweetOn to Week 7…the midpoint of season. Everyone has played 5 games so far and has 6 left…all are MVFC games until the playoffs start. Disclaimer: For those of you who don’t know me very well, I’ve been a Western Illinois fan for over 20 years. I will do my best to be relatively unbiased, but I know that it’s... Read More
