Balladeer’s Bowl always pits the National Champions of the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) against the National Champions of the NCAA Division Three.
The MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE MUSTANGS are the NAIA Champions for 2018.
The UNIVERSITY OF MARY HARDIN-BAYLOR CRUSADERS are the NCAA Division Three Champions for 2018.
Readers of Balladeer’s Blog get to vote on the winner over the next week, so NAIA and D3 boosters can begin their annual deluge of emails to me arguing for their choice.
Email voting is the ONLY official way to let your decision be known, a procedure I implemented years ago to cut down on repeat voting by the same people.
Send me your choice for the game’s winner at Thtcom15 at aol dot com.
