Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Handles Hamline, 43-7

For the second time this season, the St. Thomas football team got a lopsided win on its home field the week after a tough loss in the MIAC. Back in Week 4, the Tommies crushed Carleton 65-6 one week after a devastating 20-18 loss to St. John’s in their MIAC opener. St. Thomas suffered a tough 28-21 loss at Bethel last weekl, and it was followed by a dominating 43-7 win over Hamline on Saturday.

Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Focused On Hamline After Tough Loss

The St. Thomas football team knows it’s probably on the outside looking in when it comes to earning a playoff berth this year. The Tommies, which dropped to No. 15 in the latest Division III poll after losing 28-21 at Bethel last week, need to win their last four games and have Bethel go undefeated and win the MIAC to have any chance at the postseason.

Tommies Blog: NCAA Hopes Dwindle After Loss At Bethel

The Tommies lost at Bethel 28-21 Saturday to drop to 4-2 on the season, but more importantly 2-2 in the MIAC. The win for the Royals also gives them the inside track at a league title and the MIAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Playoffs.

Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Beats Gustavus, O’Connell Out For Season

The excitement of a road win for the St. Thomas football team at Gustavus was a bit tempered Saturday as the Tommies headed back to St. Paul. St. Thomas, ranked No. 6 in Division III headed into the game, actually dropped three spots in the polls despite claiming a 20-12 win over the Gusties.

After falling to St. John’s 20-18 in the conference opener, every week the rest of the season will essentially be a playoff game for the Tommies. St. Thomas (2-1, 0-1) can’t afford to have another MIAC loss if it has any hopes of another league title and a trip to the NCAA Playoffs.

Tommies Blog: Reliving The 2012 National Title Game

I’ve never been a huge fan of the “what might have been” scenario, especially when it comes to sports and championships. I’ve always viewed that as pretty cut and dry. If you did enough, you’ll win a championship. If you didn’t, you won’t.
