THE WARHAWKS GOT DISSED: NCAA DIVISION 3 FOOTBALL PLAYOFF FIELD ANNOUNCED

The UWW Warhawks are undefeated, are the defending D3 Champions and were the wire-to-wire #1 team in D3 in the polls but got relegated to a Number 2 seed in the playoff bracket today. The Mt Union Purple Raiders, St Thomas Tommies, the North Central Cardinals and the Wesley Wolverines were the 4 Number 1 seeds. And another thing for 1A fans who think playoffs bring an end to all post-season  controversies, the Washington and Lee Generals beat the Hampden-Sydney Tigers head to head on November 6th and are the conference champs of the league they and Hampden-Sydney play in (while H-S got an at-large berth) but are a 6 seed to the Tigers’ 4 seed in the same region. All that aside, the nation is waiting to see, once the dust settles, if it will be a 6th consecutive title game matchup between the Warhawks and the Purple Raiders. The Wesley Wolverines have been handed a perfect opportunity to at last break out of the shadow of those powerhouses. Will they make the most of it? Here are the First Round matchups for next Saturday. For a printable version of the D3 bracket click here: http://d3football.com/playoffs/2010/footballbracket2010.pdf
