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: Top 10 Teams Meet Saturday In Arden Hills

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.

Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Faces Improved Gustavus Squad Saturday

It’s probably been a very, very long time since St. Thomas had to look up at Gustavus in the MIAC football standings, but that’s exactly the case as the two teams square off Saturday afternoon in St. Peter.

Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Looking For Rebound Win Over Carleton

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: MIAC Gets Football Shakeup With Tommies On Bye

The St. Thomas campus, at least from a football standpoint, was quiet last weekend with the Tommies on a bye following a frustrating loss to St. John’s. With that bye after three games, it gave St. Thomas an early chance to correct several mistakes and get back to the fundamentals of football.

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.

Tommies Blog: St. Thomas Gears Up For Fall Camp

If you head over to Palmer field at O’Shaughnessy Stadium it’s pretty quiet these days. That will all change in a few short weeks as the St. Thomas football team prepares for the start of the fall season. Camp starts in early August for the Tommies, who went 14-1 last season. That one loss prevented St. Thomas from winning its first national championship.

Every football coach will tell you they are excited about a new class of incoming players, it’s up to everyone else to determine how legitimate that excitement is. Glenn Caruso was downright giddy when talking about his 2013 recruiting class that will arrive on the St. Thomas campus this fall.
