What We're Reading

  • »IWU looks to erase 2011's taste
  • A game from two years ago keeps eating at IWU running back Devonte Jones. "It left a sour taste in my mouth," said Jones of a 33-27 triple-overtime loss to Monmouth in a Division III first-round playoff game in 2011. "They celebrated on our field. It hurts even to this day ... We just have to get it done this time."
  • »How D-III colleges profit from football
  • Deadspin's take on how Division III football drives enrollment leaned heavily on analysis from D3football.com's Pat Coleman. Good take on D-III, actually.
  • »Lake Forest leans on its defense
  • Lake Forest had a breakthrough last season, going 8-2 overall and tying St. Norbert for the Midwest Conference championship at 8-1. But the Foresters were left with a sense of unfinished business.
