DELTA STATE STATESMEN AND THE UMD BULLDOGS TOP THE NCAA DIVISION 2 TOP 25

The D2 preseason Top 25 is finally out (good thing, with games starting in less than two weeks) and the two teams who played for the National Championship last December are at the top of the poll. The Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs and the Delta State Statesmen are at number one and two, respectively, with perennial (but now Tjeerdsma-less) football power the Northwest Missouri Bearcats at number three.

THE “REAL” FALL CLASSIC: COMING THIS SATURDAY AND FOR AT LEAST 3 MORE YEARS

By David Boyce

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Three more years!

The Fall Classic at Arrowhead will continue through the 2013 season.

Announcement of this wonderful news came Monday afternoon at a press conference at The New Arrowhead Stadium to promote the upcoming ninth Fall Classic at Arrowhead . Kickoff is 2 p.m. Saturday.

Both schools and the Chiefs agreed in principle to extend the series at Arrowhead, ending any worries that Saturday’s game would be the last at the NFL Stadium.

“It’s something we think will benefit the entire region and the schools,” said Mark Donovan, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the Chiefs.

A year ago the news of a 1-year extension didn’t come until game day. There are no such worries this time because of the diligent work of Northwest, Pittsburg State and the Chiefs. Continue reading

THE COOLEST HELMET IN THE MID-AMERICA INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

Team: NORTHWEST MISSOURI STATE BEARCATS

Location: Maryville, MO 

Division: NCAA Division 2

Site: http://www.nwmissouri.edu/sports/

Comment: The Bearcats have won 3 total D2 National Championships in football (my favorite being the multiple-OT epic in 1999), are the reigning D2 champs and have played in the last 5 title games in a row! They even have former players on NFL rosters! Much of the credit for this success goes to the Bearcats’  Head Coach Mel Tjeerdsma (Official Balladeer’s Blog Motto – “Tjeerdsma: It’s not pronounced ANYTHING like it’s spelled!”) but the rest of the credit goes to these incredibly cool helmets! (I’m kidding!) And if you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “CHURCH-ma”.
