I was very happy to read recently that WCCO Radio and the University of St. Thomas extended their contract for Tommie football for the next two seasons.
When Glenn Caruso stepped away from the football program at Macalester College four years ago to take over at the University of St. Thomas, he had big aspirations for the team.
The St. Thomas football team spent most of its season ranked No. 3 in the nation, but the Tommies found out Saturday just how much better they have to get to go to the top of Division III.
It’s without question the biggest game in the history of the St. Thomas football program.
The St. Thomas football team used a dominant second half to top Monmouth College (Ill.) 38-10 on Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Division III Playoffs. Their reward: Playing a team they’ve never faced.
The St. Thomas football team proved it can withstand virtually any element after its 48-2 win in the NCAA Playoffs on Saturday over previously unbeaten St. Scholastica.
A 10-0 regular season and a MIAC championship was a great accomplishment for the St. Thomas football team, but it’s just one step in the journey for Glenn Caruso’s squad this season.
The St. Thomas football team already clinched at least a share of the MIAC title last Saturday with a 20-7 win over Gustavus, but the team has bigger things in mind.
For the second time in three weeks, the St. Thomas football team pretty much had things wrapped up by halftime in a MIAC victory.
The St. Thomas football team gutted out a 17-0 win at Augsburg College Saturday to stay undefeated at 6-0. In the process, the No. 3-ranked Tommies claimed first place alone in the MIAC with a 4-0 mark.
Every game is big when you’re undefeated, ranked in the top five in the nation and everyone wants nothing more than to beat you.
Focus isn’t going to be an issue this week for the St. Thomas football team, at least if you ask coach Glenn Caruso. It’s too big of a week for the Tommies program to go into a game without the necessary focus to come away with a win Saturday afternoon.
St. Thomas coach Glenn Caruso said last Saturday’s game at Concordia would be “no slam dunk,” but the Tommies sure made it look easier than expected with a 48-30 win over the Cobbers in Moorhead.
St. Thomas, now ranked No. 3 in the latest Division III national poll, face a long road trip to Moorhead and have a formidable opponent in front of them in the Concordia Cobbers.
A pair of 2-0 teams will face off at 1:10 p.m. Saturday at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul as St. Thomas hosts St. Olaf in its MIAC opener.
The Tommies got six touchdowns from their running game, including four from senior Colin Tobin, in a 45-22 win at UW-River Falls on Saturday. Tobin finished with 122 yards in the game.
The St. Thomas football team heads just across the Wisconsin border Saturday afternoon to complete its non-conference schedule. The No. 4-ranked Tommies (1-0) travel to UW-River Falls, who will be playing its season opener.
Dakota Tracy is expected to be a leader of the St. Thomas offense this season, and the quarterback played like it on Saturday as the Tommies beat St. Norbert (Wis.) 20-7 in the season opener for both teams at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul.
It’s a new season, but the goals are as high as ever for the University of St. Thomas football team. The Tommies enter the 2011 regular season coming off a 12-1 campaign in 2010.
Steve Fritz, the athletic director at the University of St. Thomas, admitted it was time four years ago for the athletic facilities at the small private college in St. Paul to get a facelift.
