THE BIG TWO TOP BALLADEER’S BLOG’S PRESEASON RANKINGS FOR NCAA DIVISION 3 FOOTBALL

 Balladeer’s Blog presents its preseason rankings for NCAA D3 college football.

To the surprise of nobody the Whitewater Warhawks (logo at left) and the Mount Union Purple Raiders come in at numbers one and two. For newbies to D3 football the Warhawks and the Purple Raiders have played each other in the national championship game for the past SEVEN YEARS IN A ROW!!!

The Warhawks are the defending champs and have won four of the seven clashes between these two powerhouses who have emerged from the dust of the playoffs to battle for the title so frequently in recent years. For the third year in a row I’ll use my stale, tired joke that Mount Union and Whitewater should play for the championship on Labor Day Weekend and the rest of the D3 season should just be canceled.

Will it be eight years in a row that these two gridiron juggernauts monopolize the title matchup or will one of the other teams at last rise up and knock at least one of them out come playoff time? Stay tuned to Balladeer’s Blog to find out.

1. UWW Warhawks (defending champs)   ###   2. Mt Union Purple Raiders   ###   3. Mary Hardin Baylor University Crusaders   ###   4. Wesley Wolverines   ###   5. Saint Thomas University Tommies   ###   6. Salisbury Sea Gulls   ###   7. Linfield College Wildcats   ###   8. Continue reading
