1-0, baby!

Not quite the asswhipping we gave to Upper Iowa last year, but a W is a W.

On a side note, how much must it suck to play for a football team called the Peacocks?

UMR's wild adventure to Iowa ends in victory

(August 27): FAYETTE, Iowa -- It seemed as if the stars were aligned to derail the UMR football team in its season opener, but thanks to 13 points in the final 2:53, the Miners came away with a 26-18 win over Upper Iowa Saturday afternoon. Evan Gray hit freshman tight end Ben Cutten with a three-yard scoring pass with 2:53 to go to put the Miners ahead for good, then safety Rodrick McDonald atoned for an earlier mistake that led to a Peacock touchdown by returning an interception 62 yards for a score on the next drive to extend the margin of victory. UMR, which arrived late to its Friday night destination due to a bus breakdown on the way to Iowa, spotted the Peacocks the first 12 points of the game, but got on the board just before halftime when the Miners took advantage of a bad snap on a punt. On the first play after getting the ball on the Peacocks' eight-yard line, Gray connected with Brandon Landry to cut the UIU lead to 12-7 by halftime. The Miners had three drives inside the Upper Iowa 20-yard line in the third quarter, but could only come away with two Marc Armbruster field goals (32 and 22 yards) to take a 13-12 lead with 5:35 to go in the period. The teams traded possessions before Upper Iowa regained the lead with 1:04 left in the third period, as T.C. Hicks scored his second touchdown of the day on a four-yard run a play after a 48-yard pass put the Peacocks deep into Miner territory. Upper Iowa had a chance to extend its lead as it put together a 14-play drive in the fourth quarter to the UMR 28, but on a fourth down play, Daudi White intercepted a pass to set up the Miners' eventual winning drive. The key play was a 35-yard pass from Gray to Landry on fourth-and-five that put the Miners on the Upper Iowa three. After one incomplete pass, Gray hit Cutten for the go-ahead score. The Peacocks moved back down the field to the Miner 33, but McDonald picked off a pass in the flat and raced 62 yards for another touchdown to make it an eight-point game. Upper Iowa still had a chance, but Jamel Sims picked off a deflected pass two plays into the Peacocks' next possession to pretty much seal the deal for the Miners. Gray completed 29 of 49 passes in his first game since the 2003 finale for 293 yards and the two scores, while Phil Shin caught 11 passes for 102 yards. Keenan Miller led the ground attack with 33 yards, while Mario Gant had 17 tackles on defense for UMR, which also had the three interceptions in the fourth quarter. UMR (1-0) will open its home schedule next Saturday at 6:30 p.m. against Central Methodist at Allgood-Bailey Stadium. The Eagles will be opening their 2005 schedule at UMR.

My senior year they opened the season 2-0, then went on to lose every single MIAA game. The did the same thing the following year (2001) and then proceeded to not win another game until last year. Last year was the first time they'd won an MIAA game since my freshman year (97) and the first road MIAA win since... I believe Jesus walked the Earth.

Wow. When I was there, there were around 7000 enrolled.
I wish I knew where to find a year-by-year listing of enrollment figures. It would be interesting. I know when I looked at old Rollamo's from the 70's they had they pictures of all the fraternities, pictures of the dorm floors, then pics of the motels they had students staying in. By contrast, when our fraternity's house remodel went over schedule and it wasn't ready for us to move into when school started my junior year the University gave us a whole floor of TJ to stay on for awhile.

All the articles I've ever seen about Thomas retiring only mention the last time enrollment was at the present level. They never mention highest ever.

Upon taking the helm at UMR on Sept. 1, 2000, Thomas quickly focused on what he called his "three immediate priorities" as chancellor: "enrollment, enrollment, enrollment." At that time, the student population had been in steady decline for seven years since 1993, when total enrollment (including off-campus enrollment) was 5,681. By the time Thomas arrived, total enrollment had dropped to 4,748, a decline of almost 15 percent since 1993. To stem the enrollment decline, the campus broadened its academic offerings and created the School of Management and Information Systems. UMR also expanded the academic offerings in campus' three other academic units, initiated specialized certificate programs and strengthened transfer programs with community colleges throughout the state.

Today, the enrollment for UMR for fall 2004 is close to 5,500 students, an increase of 15.8 percent over the fall 2000 figure. For the first time in its history, over the past two years, UMR has instituted an enrollment cap for incoming freshmen engineering.

2-0, baby!

Big plays enough to get Miners their second win

(Sept. 3): Thanks to four touchdowns that covered more than 30 yards -- and an interception return for a touchdown as well -- the Miners were able to improve to 2-0 on the season with a 43-18 victory over Central Methodist Saturday night at Allgood-Bailey Stadium. It was two big plays by Evan Gray and Brandon Landry that got the Miners on the board early, as the two connected on a 37-yard pass play on third-and-27 on UMR's opening drive to set up a 36-yard scoring pass between the two on the very next play. UMR's offense sputtered for the better part of the opening half, however, posting just 171 yards overall and only eight on the ground as the Miners led 10-6 at the intermission after Marc Armbruster's 28-yard field goal late in the half. But in the third quarter, the big plays led to a 20-point explosion in a span of 2:55 that gave UMR a 30-6 lead. The Miners opened the second half with a 14-play scoring drive that featured 12 straight running plays before Ashton Gronewald hauled in a two-yard scoring pass. Two plays into CMU's next possession, Daudi White picked off a pass and raced 28 yards for another score, which was followed by by a three-and-out for the Eagles and a quick three-play scoring drive for UMR capped by a 38-yard touchdown pass from Gray to Phil Shin. After the Eagles trimmed the lead to 30-18 early in the fourth quarter, the Miners put the game away on two more big scoring plays, the first a 39-yard run by Keenan Miller and then a 31-yard score on a reverse by Landry. Landry finished the night with 134 all-purpose yards as he caught six passes for 103 yards. Gronewald also had over 100 yards in catches with 112 on seven receptions. Gray completed 17 of 34 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns. The Miners finished the night with 421 yards of total offense as they reached 2-0 for the first time since 2001. UMR will remain at home next Saturday as it takes on Wayne State (Neb.) in a 6:30 p.m. game. The Wildcats fell to 0-2 Saturday with a loss at Nebraska-Kearney.

Those poor bastards.

Oct 22nd is UMR @ South Dakota State University. I'm pretty sure UMR will suffer a defeat at the hands of the Jackrabbits that Saturday. We nearly beat both Cal Poly and Montana who are ranked pretty high. Just got back from the SDSU vs UC-Davis where we won 16-14. UC Davis almost beat New Hampshire who is ranked 1 earlier this year.

since NW or PSU wasn't at the top of the MIAA during the season?

- by the way - the 'cats had a great chance to put Washburn away, but the pass defense burned them again. The ichabods marched down the field with short passes and milked the clock at the same time. Why can't they stop the pass when it counts?

if the bearcats aren't going to win the MIAA, im glad its not going to be pitt. And you never know, this could be a changing of the guard.

I can't figure out the Mules this year. When we win, we win big (thank you Southwest Baptist), but when we lose, we lose close.

Inconsistant seems to be the best way to describe them. Although, we did have a kid set an MIAA record with his fourth punt return for a TD in six games. Can't argue with production like that.

Well.. UMR did not fair very well in South Dakota.

Our starting QB reinjured his ankle on the first drive and was out from then on. It didn't matter because SDSU's O Line completely dominated the Miners.

Jacks Outscore UMR 64-28 on Hobo Day (http://www.gojacks.com/)
BROOKINGS, SD - South Dakota State set single-game school records for yards rushing and total offense as the Jacks defeated Missouri-Rolla 64-28, also setting a record for the most points scored in a Hobo Day game Saturday at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium.

The Jacks had three backs rush for over 100 yards and gained 567 yards rushing enroute to 689 yards total offense. That breaks the SDSU single game record of 532 yards rushing against Augustana in 1952 and 682 yards total offense set against Wayne State in 1999.

SDSU improved to 4-3 on the season and will host nationally ranked Georgia Southern in a 1 p.m. game next Saturday. Missouri-Rolla is now 5-3 and will play another 1AA opponent, Austin Peay, next week.

SDSUís trio of Cory Koenig,Trevor Hohn and Anthony Watson accounted for 462 yards and five touchdowns for the Jacks, who topped the previous Hobo Day record of 61 in a shutout victory over USD in 1963.

Koenig, sophomore from Underwood, IA, rushed 15 times for 184 yards including touchdowns of runs of 14 and 15 yards. Hohn, sophomore from Mitchell, gained 161 yards on just six carries (26.8 ypc) with one touchdown, a 64-yard run in the fourth quarter. And Anthony Watson, junior from Worthington, MN, picked up 117 yards on 11 carries including touchdowns of 5 and 3 yards.

Three other players added touchdowns while Parker Douglass kicked field goals of 29, 27 and 27 yards. Sophomore quarterback Reed Burckhardt added an 8-yard TD run in the fourth quarter, Chris Molitor scored on a 6-yard pass from Ryan Berry in the second quarter, and Chris Wagner scored on a 10-yard pass from Burckhardt in the third period.

Douglass, the sophomore from Columbus, NE, had his string of consecutive extra points end at 52. He suffered the first missed PAT of his career in the fourth quarter, ending a string of 23 in a row this season to go with his 29-for-29 performance as a freshman.

Jackrabbit starting quarterback Andy Kardoes, who has been nursing an ankle injury most of the season, played just one series before going to the sideline. Berry, redshirt freshman from Watertown, came in and was 8-for-14 passing for 77 yards while rushing 7 times for 44 yards, and Burckhardt, the sophomore from Russell, MN, finished 4-for-8 passing for 45 yards and had one rush for 8 yards.

UMR quarterback Evan Gray tied the Minersí single-game record by passing for four touchdowns as he finished 27-of-46 for 335 yards. That boosted his season total to 21 TDs, a UMR record. His touchdowns covered 51 and 23 yards to Brandon Landry and 14 and 77 yards to Ashton Gronewald. UMR, a Division II independent, finished with 353 yards passing and 388 yards total offense.

Cornerback Jeff Hegge, like Berry a former Watertown Arrow, led the Jacks with nine tackles, including four solos. Linebacker Billy Ray Kirch had eight stops and two passes broken up. Twenty-three players had tackles for the Jacks, who had sacks by Gabe Koenigsfeld and Hank Goff.

Defensively for UMR, linebacker Mario Gant had 13 tackles and safety Nathan Williams had ten.

The 92nd Hobo Day game drew 14,503 fans despite 45 degree temperatures with a morning snow which blanketed the field in white.

It's possible that the MIAA could send 4 teams to the playoffs. Scenario:
1. Washburn is essentially in already.
2. NW beats PSU @ Arrowhead, makes playoffs
3. PSU beats Central following week, makes playoffs
4. Mo West upsets Washburn, makes playoffs.

btw- It feels odd, but I'm really rooting for the Griffons to beat Washburn. They can do it, too. Its not much of a stretch.

Anaylysis of NW's chances:
We finally put up a good amount of points, beating CMSU 31-21 Sat. It was a game that the refs tried to hand to Central via ticky-tack pass interference calls (there must have been 5 called on NW, maybe one or two deserved) that kept Central drives alive.
Lambo, aside from a few poor decisions that turned into sacks, was in '04, pre-injury Lambo form. He threw for a carrer high 378 yards, along with 3 TDs. He also handled all punting duties due to a discipline issue.
Xavier Omon ran for 123, and looks like he's getting back into his groove after sufering a knee injury last month against Truman State. If, if the Bearcats' offensive showing against the stingy Central D is an indicator of it's long awaited awakening, then NW stands a great chance of beating the Gorillas next week @ Arrowhead. The Bearcat defense is tough when its not playing bullshit zones like we were against Central. The game should be in the 30s like last year; and a close finish.
PSU should do the right thing for the conference and lose:) An 8-3 PSU team should still make the playoffs, but a 7-3 NWMSU team wouldn't.

Heh, much like the Chiefs/Chargers game, you ofen can't overcome a disatrous first half. NW's atrotious start resulted in a 41-14 PSU lead. We fought back, but it was too little, way too late. Maybe we'll have an O-Line next year. :)

I'm rooting for Washburn to do good things in the playoffs. If you end up playing Pitt State, kindly demolish them.

The MIAA is turning on its head today, making playof seedings a crapshoot.

Northwest rebounds, winning 49-14 over Southern Baptist. Northwest starters only played the first half, scoring 42 points.

In a huge surprise, Pitt State was dominated by Central Missouri. I don;t even know the final score, last I checked it was like 69-14. I have no idea what happened there; this is clearly a different PSU team than the one who dismantled the Bearcats @ Arrowhead.

D2football.com is having problems right now, so I don't know what the score of the Washburn/Mo West game is. Last I heard, it was
Griffons 21, 'Bods 14. If the Ichabods lose, then I have no idea how playoff seedings are going to be calculated. The playoff announcement, btw, is televised @ noon central tomorrow on ESPN News.

NWMSU 45, Angelo State 14. Angelo did not score against the Bearcats' starting defense, a squad already riddled with injury. Xavier Omon had 255 rushing yards on twenty something carries.

Pitt State handly beat Nebraska-Kearney 49-20. Pitt stays on the road, playing West Texas A&M next Sat.

Northwest goes to Topeka to play MIAA champion Washburn. I think the Bearcats are hungry for blood. Washburn upset NW earler @ Maryville, and NW would love to avenge the loss. Plus, NW has the playoff experience. I love what Washburn has done this season, but Northwest is finally playing thier best ball of the season at the right time. This looks like a winnable game for NW.
