Brings back memories of Tom Osborne in the Mineral Water Bowl.

Okay, so that was actually before I was born.  

At least Drake is playing an accredited college from the United States.  Some PFL teams occasionally fail to reach that standard.

Nothing like setting the bar low... anyone know why the change? Lindenwood is a solid D2 school and a respectful game on the schedule...

Hastings was 2-8 last year with 70-28, 44-0, and 61-20 losses on their schedule. I'm guessing it came down a lesser payout and an guaranteed win prior to two difficult road games.

Lindenwood backed out of the game. They play at Indiana State on the 19th of September, and want to play only one Division 1 school. Indiana State pays a little more, so Drake is out.

I'm sure Hastings wasn't a "first choice" as a replacement, but I really don't know what was all available at this point in time.

I think spring ball is probably priority one right now...

Speaking of Lindenwood, they recently hired Denver Johnson, the former head coach at Murray State and Illinois State...as their offensive line coach.  

I was afraid in 2007 that his career might spiral downward after his ranked Illinois State team lost to Drake, en route to a losing season.  After ISU fired him, he was never a D-I head coach again.

Feels good to take a jab at a former Tulsa player.  Dude helped ruin my Halloween in '81.    :-|
