For the Love of the Game

Today the UWW Warhawks take on the Knights of Wartburg College for an opportunity to play in the Semi Finals of the D3 national Tourney. Wow - there is a concept for the the NCAA D1 crowd -- actually have a PLAYOFF not the customary PAYOFF. Yes, I am pretty certain that the BCS is some demonic entity. Enough!
If you have never seen d3 football -- do yourself a favor and check it out! Wisconsin has (this is just trying to remember them off the top of my head) at least 15 d3 teams - ONE near YOU! These men get no scholarships, no perks, nothing that any regular student doesn't get -- they play for the love of the game and that is what makes it what it is -- great football. Other games on tap for today FRANKLIN v WHEATON, MOUNT UNION COLLEGE v CORTLAND, and WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON v UNIVERSITY OF MARY HARDIN BAYLOR. (Photographs gathered from internet image search.)
