    How possible BCS conference realignment might affect the top tier of NCAA championship football

    The offseason for Division I college football fans is a usually long, arduous wait between spring practice and summer practice. This year, because of the actions of a few commissioners belonging to rich conferences, the offseason for fans of FCS schools has been anything but boring.

    Take the example of Montana, one of the crown jewels of FCS football and perfect example of what sensible, championship-caliber football is all about.

    The 1st round came and went with nary a one of the former NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision stars being chosen. But the selections continued and UMass All-American offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse was selected by the New York Jets with the 61st overall selection of the 2010 NFL Draft. 19 players from the FCS were chose including "Mr. Irrelevant" Tim Toone of Weber State. ...

    This is the year that the Big South gets a crack at the post-season as the league acquires automatic qualifier status with the expansion of the FCS playoffs.

    So, the 21 conference games bring added significance this year. From the first Big South game on Oct. 2 (Presbyterian College at VMI) to the final three on Nov. 20, it will be fun to see what develops. Stony Brook and Liberty finished at the top of the Big South in 2009. Will their game in Lynchburg on Nov. 20 decide the playoff team? Or will another Big South squad go on a run and capture the berth?

    Becoming a champion-caliber performer in any sport requires talent, dedication and hard work. In a sport such as swimming, the willingness to put in long hours of practice can make the difference between first and second place. Those long hours of practice are no stranger to Skylar Davis, and they have helped the Gustavus Adolphus College swimmer become one of the top distance swimmers in the Upper Midwest.

    Whether fans have been following Jay Wright and Scotty Reynolds this year, or have been die-hard fans since the days of Rollie Massimino, Howard Porter, “Easy Ed” Pinckney and the “Four Corners” offense, chances are folks have heard of the Wildcats’ basketball program.

    In the FCS football world, however, fans are wondering whether Villanova can do something no other school has done: win a national championship in men’s basketball and football in the same year.

    The final 2009-2010 ratings came out for measuring the FCS rankings and the result was predictable. CSN's Gridiron Power Index finished in the top spot. The GPI has never been supplanted from the top position. The three FCS polls ended up in the 30's (The Any Given Saturday and Sports Network Polls in a virtual tie at #35 and #36, and the Coaches Poll further back at #38).

When he finally got there, he realized it was not right for him.

    The Carleton Knights, who started the conference season 1-4, swept through the field, winning the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Playoffs for the first time in school history. The Knights, who rank third with 18 appearances in the Playoffs, had reached the title tilt twice before, losing to Gustavus in 1997 and to St. Thomas in 2006. They would not be denied this year, however, as they downed Gustavus 78-71 in overtime for the championship and the MIAC's automatic berth in the upcoming NCAA Division III playoffs. ...

    Talent is an essential part of an athlete’s success, but it’s far from the only component. Without a drive to succeed and a commitment to the sport, an athlete will never rise to the top of his sport, no matter how gifted he might be. Joe Scott is, without question, a most talented basketball player. What has enabled him to elevate his game is an intense passion for becoming the best he possibly can be and the willingness to work long and hard to make that a reality. That combination of talent and determination has helped the University of St. Thomas standout become one of the top players not just in the MIAC, but also in the nation.

    The matchups for the upcoming Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Playoffs are set. Regular season champion St. Thomas is the top seed and will be at home throughout the tourney. Gustavus and Augsburg tied for second place, but the Gusties earned the second seed – and a first-round bye- by virtue of the tiebreakers. The Auggies are the third seed and will host sixth seed Saint John’s in one of Tuesday’s quarterfinal matchups. The other opening round tilt sends fifth seed Hamline to fourth seed Carleton. ...

    During the past four seasons, Aaron Damjanovich has rewritten Bethel University’s hockey record book. He holds every meaningful record a goalie could hold: best goals against average, save percentage, wins and shutouts for a season and career shut outs and wins. Some might consider his net-minding as an apt tune-up for his post-collegiate career choice. Aaron hopes to be a saver of souls, not goals, as he enters the ministry as a speaking pastor.
