These guys should be very proud to have restored the program to respectability.  The 2 PFL championships while I was in school were very fun to witness, but this year's team definitely proved that they should be thought of in a very similar way.  They proved again that you can win at Valpo, and we have the right staff in place to advance us next year!

Late touchdown, two-point conversion give Valpo a win and a winning season

VALPARAISO — If it had been pitched as an ending to a movie, the script would have been panned as too cheesy.

Except that it really happened.

Playing in his final college game, Valparaiso senior Jarrett Morgan scored on a 1-yard run with 1:20 left, then flipped a jump pass to classmate Ryan Clarke for the two-point conversion that accounted for an improbable 8-7 Pioneer League victory over Dayton on a miserable afternoon of wind, rain and cold at Brown Field.

Oh, the win is the Crusaders' first over the Flyers since 2003, which is also the last time Valpo had a winning season.

Toledo - 87
Oakland - 74

The "Fighting Kampes" potentially took a hit to their at-large resume today. A rough day for everyone in the Horizon League other then NKU.

I wonder when was the last time a head coach in Div. 1 put the game on the line with a 2 point conversion going for the win instead of going for the tie. I know the weather was terrible for kicking FGs and extra points but how could Cecchini be certain the two pointer would be successful. Dave sure had a lot of confidence in his offense.

I don't know the answer to the question about the "last time" but, if there was any lack of confidence in the kicking game....and the way things looked there should have been....then the logic of "I'd rather lose trying to win than trying to tie" makes a lot of sense.

bring your cell phones and FB or tweet or instagram pictures from the game and win "prizes".

Heck, most of the pizza I've ever eaten in the ARC has been free. #tweetYourSeat

Oh! That's what tweet your seat means. I won't tell you what I thought they meant by that phrase.  :(

Oh. So this is how a class conference works?  That is very refreshing.

Is there a video feed for the 2017 Savannah Invitational? I checked the Savannah Invitational website and there was nothing about video coverage for this event.
