The St. Thomas football team got a taste of what it takes to be a national champion after losing to UW-Whitewater 20-0 last year in the NCAA Semifinals.
The St. Thomas sideline was all smiles Saturday afternoon once a perfect regular season became a reality. The No. 3-ranked Tommies completed a 10-0 regular season, despite already having the MIAC title won, with a 35-21 win over St. Olaf.
When you’re undefeated, every game is your biggest game of the year. Last week, the St. Thomas football team played its best overall game of the year in its biggest game of the year so far.
While teams around them at the top of the MIAC football standings are fighting out close games, the St. Thomas football team came off its bye week with a 47-24 win at Carleton to improve to 4-0.
The Tommies (3-0), ranked No.3 nationally in one poll and No. 5 in another, travels to Northfield on Saturday to take on Carleton at Laird Stadium.
One can’t blame the St. Thomas football team if it enjoyed its post game celebration a little more than usual on Saturday. After all, it’s always more fun to beat your rival in their home stadium.
If what Glenn Caruso said last week about football teams and improving between their first and second games rings true, then the sky is the limit for the St. Thomas football team.
It makes a lot of sense that Glenn Caruso is nothing short of confident as the St. Thomas football team heads into its home opener.
The No. 8-ranked St. Thomas football team didn’t have much to celebrate on Saturday until the last six minutes of its season-opening game at UW-Eau Claire.
The winning tradition has been established, now it’s up to a newer crop of talent to keep it going. That’s the challenge that lies ahead for the St. Thomas football team this fall.
When Glenn Caruso took over as St. Thomas football coach four years ago, he expected to have success. Every coach does, but I think even he is surprised at what his program has accomplished since he took the reins.
