In D4? Their talent will still be ahead of anyone. Lake Mills returns nearly their whole team. Maybe they can close the gap. Not buying anyone else though.

What will be interesting to watch is CMH no longer has that C8 drop down effect to help (or hinder health-wise) them. They will be playing in an actual D3 conference...we'll see how that changes certain aspects of the program. Maybe not this year, but certainly over time.


They do lose A LOT, and have a small senior class rolling through this fall. But their Jr and So classes are stacked to high heaven. Definitely agree with DB that their biggest challenge will be adapting to their strength of schedule. Antioch, IL and BC to start the season is tough but I bet they wish they could play those two games in week 8 & 9 instead.

I was thinking that too, at first. But looking at the so-called "Parkland", while it's no Classic 8 by any stretch it's definitely a decent conference by D3 standards. Most of the Woodland's weaker programs stay put in the FKA East Division. Ike and Greendale (which moves East) have both made Camp Randall runs coming out of that group. CMH won't blink but they won't automatically roll over the better teams in the division.

Plus they get to avoid the physical beating of playing Muskego. The pro and con of playing those guys with a D3/D4 sized roster is a real coin flip. Pro, your whole team gets tested by a physicality you won't see anywhere else. Con, it costs you a couple starters the next week or more.

Of course, all of that assumes Eisenhower stays tough, West keeps building and Pewaukee remains a hard-nosed program. A CMH/Greendale (or whomever beats them) "conference championship" crossover game in Week 9 isn't a bad start to playoff readiness either.
