2010 Division III football playoffs

December 21, 2010 Wrapping up Stagg Bowl, 2010 season Stagg Bowl XXXVIII crew Keith, Pat and Frank Rossi take a look back at the Stagg Bowl, hand out the season's individual awards and give their wishes for 2011 in the final Around the Nation podcast.

December 20, 2010 Final 2010 playoff bracket This is how the largest college football playoff on the planet came out in 2010.

December 18, 2010 Changing of the guard? With two wins in a row and three in the past four seasons, UW-Whitewater has wrestled the mantle away from Mount Union, says Keith McMillan.

December 18, 2010 Coppage carries UWW to Stagg Bowl repeat Levell Coppage ran for 299 yards and three touchdowns for the Warhawks in a 31-21 win, giving UW-Whitewater another Walnut and Bronze.

December 17, 2010 New faces in Salem The teams, uniforms and colors don't change but that doesn't mean the Stagg Bowl isn't new for some. Mount Union and UW-Whitewater have plenty of players making their first trip and first start in Salem.

December 16, 2010 Who will play quarterback? Both teams come into Stagg Bowl XXXVIII with a key question not quite answered. Will it be Lee Brekke or Matt Blanchard for the Warhawks? Neal Seaman or Matt Piloto for the Purple Raiders?

December 12, 2010 Around the Nation Podcast Boring? So there's been a lack of variety in Salem the past six years. But you cannot say the games have been boring. More on that, Saturday's semifinals and the Salem experience. Click to listen.

December 10, 2010 Playing with backups Although UW-Whitewater is relatively famously playing without its No. 1 quarterback, Wesley has suffered perhaps more than its fair share of injuries. But the 2's have stepped right in. A Road to Salem feature.

December 9, 2010 Ballhawking Warhawks finding big plays The UW-Whitewater defense doesn't necessarily emphasize generating turnovers. But it's been a big part of their success in the playoffs.

December 9, 2010 A dream defensive season Bethel doesn't have a defensive lineman over 240 pounds but is ninth in Division III against the run. How? More in a Road to Salem feature.

December 9, 2010 Ballhawking Warhawks The UW-Whitewater defense doesn't necessarily emphasize generating turnovers. But it's been a big part of their success in the playoffs.

December 8, 2010 Shorts sees what's ahead For seniors such as Mount Union receiver Cecil Shorts, the end of the line is looming. Whether his D-III career ends this week or next week, he wants his younger teammates to feel the urgency.

December 6, 2010 Podcast: Four games, but more as well Of course we're talking about the playoff games that took place Saturday and the two coming up this week. But it's award season, too, so Pat and Keith tackle the Gagliardi Trophy and the D3 Senior Classic.

December 4, 2010 Still on track for Purple Bowl VI The NCAA put a little wrinkle into this year's bracket, but UW-Whitewater passed the test and Mount Union avoided it.

December 3, 2010 Alfred next for the challenge Mount Union poses a considerably tougher challenge than Cortland State did, but Alfred coach Dave Murray said the mindset must stay the same.

December 3, 2010 The rematch When Bethel and St. Thomas met on Oct. 23, it never crossed our mind they'd be doing it again for a berth in the semifinals. A preview of the all-MIAC quarterfinal.

December 2, 2010 Carrying the load UW-Whitewater All-American running back Levell Coppage has been slowed at times this season, but with the Warhawks' No. 1 quarterback out, Coppage has been stellar in the playoffs.

December 2, 2010 Wesley, UMHB meet again After a year off, the two South Region powerhouses meet for the rubber match of the five-game series, with a trip to the semifinals in the balance.

December 1, 2010 Finally comfortable For a guy who's been a key part of the Mount Union defensive line for years, Lambert Budzinski is only now getting accustomed to his position. That's bad news for anyone going against him.

December 1, 2010 Who is North Central? If it seems like North Central has less of an identity than it has in previous years, you aren't necessarily mistaken. The Cardinals are racking up fewer individual numbers to focus on depth.

November 26, 2010 Second round has big showdowns The rankings suggest these two games should take place in December, not November. But the bracket brings Top 10 teams together this weekend.

November 26, 2010 Wheaton, Bethel meet again Bethel lost in devastating fashion last September. Wheaton knows that either meeting could have gone either way. So the rematch features a lot of respect between two evenly matched teams..

November 24, 2010 Trine heading where it wants to go So the Thunder have won a first-round game for the second year in a row. But if Trine wants to be the next UW-Whitewater (and don't most playoff teams?) it will need to take that next step.

November 23, 2010 For winning defenses, challenge looms Delaware Valley, Thomas More and Montclair State each shut down successful offenses in the first round, but it gets much tougher for each in Round 2 on Saturday.





November 15, 2010 What the committee said Division II gets a news conference with its committee chair to ask questions. In D-III, no such luck, but chair Joy Solomen did do an on-air interview after selections. Listen in.

November 14, 2010 2010 playoff bracket announced So we have a bracket. With seeds! And teams not just seeded in order of their record! So who got in, and who was left out?
