St. Thomas Football
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.
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 can finally say it’s in unfamiliar territory. The Tommies, ranked No. 3 in the nation, advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the first time in school history with a 45-10 win over St. John Fisher on Saturday at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul.
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 recovered from three first-half turnovers to score 28 points in the second half and beat Monmouth College (Ill.) 38-10 on Saturday at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul.
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.
The Tommies, ranked No. 3 in the nation, ran away in the second half with a 48-2 victory over the Saints at O’Shaughnessy Stadium to advance. St. Scholastica got its only points of the game on the opening kickoff with a safety.
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 rolled to a 56-0 win over Carleton on Saturday in its regular season finale in Northfield. The win lets the Tommies clinch the MIAC title for the second straight season with a 10-0 record.
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.
The St. Thomas football team, ranked No. 3 nationally, beat Gustavus 20-7 on Saturday at O’Shaughnessy Stadium to clinch at least a share of the MIAC title.
When you play sports, you dream of that big match-up. It’s the one big game on your schedule that you know you have to win if you have chance at a championship.
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.
The Tommies, now 6-0 and ranked No. 3 in Division III, limited talented Auggies’ quarterback Marcus Brumm to just 136 yards passing, no touchdowns and intercepted him once.
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.
It was unfamiliar territory for both St. Thomas and St. John’s at O’Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul on Saturday.
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.
