Imop this is the best team uwo has ever had even better than the 2012 final 4 team. Their offense is lethal and can score any way they want whenever they want. Their defense is a beast and just shuts people down. Their only loss was to an naia top 5 team and they lost the game on a fumble with 30 seconds left deep in Robert morris territory. That game could hurt their seeding as far as a 1 but they were one play away from a top 3 ranking.

Nope.... It won't even be a blip on the radar, as the "UW-Oshkosh?s loss was to non-Division-III Robert Morris-Chicago, so when it comes to playoff positioning, we can toss the 23-21 Week 1 result right out the window."

Well that's good it wont effect that. Comparing this team with 2012. Kasper is better passer than wara they have more weapons and their defense is a wall most of the time. Remember they beat whitewater with their 3rd string qb.

Since you said it wont hurt why weren't they considered for playoffs last year then. Yeah they were 6 4 but they were 6 1 in conference only loss was whitewater other three came to 2 naia teams and 1 division 1 fcs team. They finished #15 in nation despite being 6 4. You can't tell a gop 15 team doesn't miss playoffs without them looking into naia losses a,bit.

They were.... Unfortunately for them, Platteville more than likely dropped out of the Final West Region rankings after they lost their season finale (third loss of season) against UWO and Concordia-Moorhead replaced them, giving St. Thomas a win -vs- a "Regionally Ranked" opponent. UWO on the other hand didn't have a quality win, which ultimately left them "at the table" when the last of the Pool C bids were rewarded.

In addition, the d3football.com Poll has absolutely ZERO bearing on who is/isn't included in the 32 team field. The Regional Rankings are what ultimately decides on the seven Pool C berths.

It's been my opinion that the selection committee does everything they can to exclude WIAC teams, rather than include them.

I am a graduate of uwo and regularly attend their home football and basketball games. What i dont understand is the attendance at these games. Whitewater sells out every game Platteville gets good attendance but oshkosh is atrocious. Basketball is one thing because they haven't been good for awhile but the kolf center holds 5800. They average 812 for home games. Football i can't rap my mind around they have a solid program whicg has been great this year and 2012. They stadium holds 10000 they can barely get 1500 hundred for games. They only had 2800 for the whitewater game which was biggest home game in years. I guess i am wondering why students don't attend these games more or anyone in general. Its disappointing for a great athletic program.

Membership in DIII is overwhelmingly made up of private schools, most of whom give the evil eye to the publics, claiming unfair enrollment and cost advantages. Whenever an opportunity presents itself to hose the WIAC, the largest and most powerful of the "evil ones", the water flows. The rule eliminating "redshirting" is the most blatant example of a policy meant to hamstring public universities. No a word is said about private school endowments which often run beyond $100 million.

UWO actually has a game with River Falls this weekend... A win by the Falcons moves them into a tie for first place in the WIAC.

UW-Oshkosh has always been considered a "suit-case college." The majority of the students live in and around the Fox Valley ... the kids go home on the weekend and live their social life in their hometowns. That's part of the reason Thursday night is such a big party night in Oshkosh.

In many other WIAC schools, Whitewater, Platteville, Eau Claire, LaCrosse, Stevens Point, etc, campus life thrives on the weekends because the kids stay in town & on-campus on weekends. Because they are on campus for the weekends, they are more apt to participate in school activities, ie. athletic events. This concept seems to lost on almost every Fox Valley native I've ever known who attended UW-O. Weekend campus life is a foreign concept to them. Not every campus in the UW system practically closes down for the weekend like UW-O does.

I saw that.

The e-mail I received last week from UW-Eau Claire, specifically targeting UWEC alumni living in the Fox River Valley, was obviously in error.

The Blugolds (who lost 63-0, to UW-Whitewater, today) actually visit UWO on 11/14.
