MVFC – Week 9 in Review
TweetAnother week of winnowing down the potential playoff teams as a preseason conference favorite got effectively eliminated from contention. Let’s take a look at conference standings, where teams are in relation to being set up for a playoff spot or if they’re already out of the picture.

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

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

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

TweetWell, as I’m writing most of this, it’s 12:30 AM Sunday morning, I just got back from watching my Leathernecks give me a heart attack against Northern Iowa, and I was driving, so I’m still awake from some later-than-usual caffeine. I must say…this was an interesting week…assuming you like a bit of chaos with your football, right? Now that we’re... Read More

Tweet Wow…what a first week of MVFC action. There were record-breaking performances, a couple of highly ranked teams battling in close games, and a nearly epic comeback. It was a pretty exciting start to what should be a strong conference season. Missouri State (1-3) at #2 North Dakota State (3-0) 4-0 on the season. 1-0 in the Valley. pic.twitter.com/BHnL6Vt89B —...

Tweet It’s all downhill from here…at least for some teams. The MVFC has 6 teams listed in the top 10 of this week’s AGS poll and fully half of the conference is undefeated, but we’re now “all in” on conference “season”. This week, we have 5 games between the 10 MVFC teams including two games involving two top-10 teams. Somebody... Read More
