Looks like a 4-4, maybe a 5-3 weekend.

Looks like Alize Johnson will play but be limited to 10-12 minutes or so, probably not start. 1st contact in practice this week. With that said, not confident in Bears chances at WK. Hopefully Rousseau will make his 1st appearance in starting lineup. Bears look to be a game or two away from being where they need to be.

MVC wise looks more like a 2-6 /3-5 to me.
The Bear is the largest carnivore on the North American continent; beware the Bear!

I think SIU, Loyola, Evansville, and Bradley will win. Maybe Ill State.

Road games are tough to win. If the valley goes 4-4 or better, than that is probably a good start.

Drake plays COE College which is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Saturday and should win. A week from Friday plays Wake Forest which is part of the Paradise Jam which was moved to Liberty University in Virginia.

SIU may lose third starter for this game---6-5 Armon Fletcher dislocated a knee but Hinson says it will be a game day decision---so if SIU still wins this one with three starters out and eight available players--watch out MVC!

I’ve got Bradley and Loyola as the only winners.

Wouldn’t be surprised by a Missouri State win. I think the other games are long shots.

5-3 start vs D1. I think everyone has a chance except UNI though (sorry Panthers).
