WON: WWE had planned to start taping with crowds in late July at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL, an 8,000 seat arena. The July dates were originally set to be announced this coming week because Vince McMahon was determined to be the first person to run a live indoor sports event with a crowd.

WWE had planned to start taping with crowds in Florida. They have contacted a company for local people for a Friday and a Monday in late July (7/24 and 7/27 were the dates being bandied about) for live televison shoots at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL, an 8,000 seat arena. The plans was to allow fans but to have social distancing, so limiting crowds to a percentage of capacity. Last word is that may be pushed to August, but the July dates were originally set to be announced this coming week because Vince McMahon was determined to be the first person to run a live indoor sports event with a crowd.

2020.04.21 18:15 steady_downpourIs IKEA shipping things on time?
I ordered on 4/8, $800 worth of curtains for a new house. They have delayed shipping already and most recent arrival date is 2 days away. They still haven't shipped anything. No information on when they expect to. If the shipment is late again, I won't live at the house they are shipping to. Update: Shipping email received this morning. Arriving tomorrow because I'm only a few hours from the origin in a Lakeland, FL. So in time after all. Nice. I'm very surprised. I wish they had better communication so I could have avoided all the stress.
2020.03.10 01:41 rosercoAny ladies interested in playing kickball?
I recently joined the Co-Ed Spring Kickball league hosted by the City of Lakeland’s Parks and Recreation department. Although I haven’t played kickball since elementary school, I’m instantly hooked! It’s a fun workout and a great way to meet other people in the Lakeland community. No experience is necessary and since we need female players (18+) for just 4 remaining games, there is no fee. If you’re interested, message me or sign up as a free agent here: athletics.lakelandgov.net However you feel comfortable. — Details — Team: Toot It ‘N Boot It Location: Southwest Sports Complex - 1444 W Highland St, Lakeland, FL 33815 Dates / Time: Wednesday nights 3/11/20 - 6:30PM vs Agents in the Outfield 3/18/20 - 7:30PM vs Basic Pitches 3/18/20 - 8:30PM vs The Outsiders 3/25/20 - 6:30PM vs Krooked Kickers What to wear: athletic/gym-wear (blue shirt if you have one), tennis/running shoes or non-metal cleats (preferred). If you rather not sign up or get a feel for it, come to our game on Wednesday. We’re the first group to play (hopefully, since we may be short of female players next game). Anyone else wanting to play, you can register your name in the Free Agent portal and we’ll reach out if a spot opens up at athletics.lakelandgov.net
247 posted a bunch of ranking updates today. Below is where our current class sits and I'll update it if additional changes post. Brown and Manuel are anomalies, as their rank history pages don't reflect their current ratings. Hopefully, that gets sorted out. COT means change-over-time, or in this case since their 1st rating was recorded. 247 has posted their final rankings, so I updated the values and added the change to the ranks.

2020.01.10 09:26 aase458WON: ROH's contract offer to Marty Scurll is "basically WWE main roster money while only working 40 dates a year"
Dave in the new Observer brought up the fact that Marty is being advertised for Supercard. While he doesn't know if Marty signed a new deal, he does have info on what the offer is.
ROH announced its Supercard of Honor show in conjunction with WrestleMania would be on 4/4 in Lakeland, FL, meaning it’ll go head-to-head with NXT Takeover in Tampa. Lakeland is about a 55 minute drive (35 miles) from Tampa). Most notable is that Marty Scurll is listed on the card, along with PCO, Brody King, Flip Gordon, Rush, Dragon Lee, Kenny King Amy Rose, Slex and Session Moth Martina. We had heard Scurll was being offered a better deal than the one Matt Taven signed for. We don’t have it confirmed that he signed it. It’s a great deal as it’s basically WWE main roster money while only working maybe 40 dates per year for ROH and certain unique perks. What will be interesting is how New Japan fits in. New Japan wanted Scurll for the Super J Cup last year and ROH had dates and wouldn’t let him do the tournament, which at the time was a real big deal, enough to where some thought he might leave over it, but things obviously smoothed over quickly since he was working dates without a contract and listening to offers.
2019.11.25 00:32 aotexLongest Active Minor League Affiliations
A brief snapshot of each team's longest standing minor league affiliation, from youngest to oldest: Milwaukee Brewers -Wisconsin Timber Rattlers(Appleton, WI - A -Midwest League) - 11 seasons A partnership between two Wisconsin teams seems like a no-brainer, but this is the "youngest" oldest affiliation in Major League Baseball. The Timber Rattlers trace their history back to the Appleton Papermakers of 1909, and the franchise has played affiliated baseball since 1942. Nevertheless, they have had partnerships with nine different teams (including the likes of the St. Louis Browns, Boston Braves, and Washington Senators) before signing on with the Brewers in 2009. Arizona Diamondbacks -Visalia Rawhide(Visalia, CA, A-Advanced - California League) - 13 seasons The Visalia Oaks began a relationship with Diamondbacks in 2007; two years later they were rechristened the Rawhide. Baseball in Visalia dates to 1946, and the franchise has played in the same stadium (Recreation Park) through nine names and nine different parent clubs. Texas Rangers -Frisco RoughRiders(Frisco, TX - AA - Texas League) /Spokane Indians(Spokane, WA - Short Season A - Northwestern League) - 17 seasons The Rangers brought their AA presence close to home when they partnered with the newly established Frisco RoughRiders in 2003. While Frisco was a totally new venture, Spokane has baseball roots going back to 1892. They also began a partnership with the Rangers in 2003, their second tenure with the parent club (they were also aligned with Texas from 1973-1975). Los Angeles Dodgers -Ogden Raptors(Ogden, UT - Rookie - Pioneer League) - 17 seasons Los Angeles and Ogden have been affiliated since 2003. The Raptors originated as the Calgary Cardinals in 1977, also playing in Salt Lake City and Pocatello, Idaho before settling in Ogden in 1994. This team is currently marked as a contraction candidate. Miami Marlins -Jupiter Hammerheads(Jupiter, FL - A-Advanced - Florida State League) - 18 seasons The Marlins and the Hammerheads began their partnership in 2002. The Hammerheads were originally a long-time affiliate of the Montreal Expos, and were known as the West Palm Beach Expos from 1969 to 1997. Houston Astros -Tri-City ValleyCats(Troy, NY - Short Season A - New York-Penn League) - 18 seasons The Astros and ValleyCats have been affiliated since 2002, the first year of the the ValleyCats' existence. The team had previously based in Pittsfield, Massachusetts as the Pittsfield Astros (and before that, the Pittsfield Mets). Los Angeles Angels -Salt Lake Bees(Salt Lake City, UT - AAA - Pacific Coast League) - 19 seasons The Angels began an affiliation with the Salt Lake Stingers in 2001. The Stingers became the Bees in 2005, renewing the name used by Utah's first professional baseball team starting in 1915. The current Bees began play in 1994. San Diego Padres -Fort Wayne TinCaps(Fort Wayne, IN - A - Midwest League) - 21 seasons Fort Wayne and San Diego began their relationship in 1999. The TinCaps franchise has a history winding back to 1947, and the team has had many identities in cities in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and (now) Indiana. They were the Fort Wayne Wizards when they first affiliated with the Padres, later becoming the TinCaps in 2009. Pittsburgh Pirates -Altoona Curve(Altoona, PA - AA - Eastern League) - 21 seasons The Altoona Curve were established in 1999 as a result of major league expansion creating a need for more minor league clubs. The Pirates and the Curve have been affiliated since the 1999 season. Oakland Athletics -Midland RockHounds(Midland, TX - AA - Southern League) - 21 seasons Oakland and Midland began their partnership in 1999. Midland has been home to Double-A baseball since 1972, enjoying fairly long affiliations with the Cubs and Angels before joining up with the Athletics. Tampa Bay Rays -Hudson Valley Renegades(Fishkill, NY - Short Season A - New York Penn League) - 24 years The Rays have enjoyed a fair deal of continuity with minor league teams in their young history, and they still have affiliations with three teams from their inaugural season in 1998. The Durham Bulls and Princeton (Devil) Rays have both been partnered with Tampa Bay from early on, but the Hudson Valley Renegades are technically the oldest affiliate, playing under the Devil Rays banner as early as 1996, two full years before the major league club took the field. Seattle Mariners -Tacoma Rainiers(Tacoma, WA - AAA - Pacific Coast League) /Everett AquaSox(Everett, WA - Short Season A - Northwest League) - 25 seasons Seattle made two lasting affiliation changes in 1995, on the higher and lower ends of the minor league hierarchy. The Rainiers date back to the Tacoma Giants of 1960 and the AquaSox date back to the Everett Giants of 1984. New York Yankees -Tampa Tarpons(Tampa, FL - A-Advanced - Florida State League) - 26 seasons The Tampa Yankees were established in 1994, and have always been affiliated with the New York Yankees. The team re-branded as the Tarpons in 2019, harking back to another Tampa franchise with the name that played for about thirty years. Colorado Rockies -Asheville Tourists(Asheville, NC - A - South Atlantic League) - 26 seasons The Rockies' affiliation with the Tourists almost goes back through their entire history, but not quite. Asheville's professional baseball history dates back at least to 1897, with the Asheville Moonshiners. The Tourists are the only Single A affiliate Colorado has ever had; the team did not have one in their debut 1993 season (although they did have the A-Advanced Central Valley Rockies and the Short Season A Bend Rockies). Washington Nationals -Harrisburg Senators(Harrisburg, PA - AA - Eastern League) - 29 seasons Don't let the name fool you - this affiliation predates the Nationals' existence by almost 15 years. Professional baseball in Harrisburg has roots going back to the 1890's, with the Senators moniker being used as early as 1894. The Montreal Expos began their partnership with Harrisburg in 1991, and the relationship survived the Expos' relocation and re-branding. Cleveland Indians -Akron RubberDucks(Akron, OH - AA - Eastern League) - 31 seasons This affiliation started when the Vermont Mariners moved to Ohio and became the Canton-Akron Indians, starting their new identity and new partnership in 1989. The minor league club became the Akron Aeros in 1997, then re-branded again as the RubberDucks in 2014. San Francisco Giants -San Jose Giants(San Jose, CA - A-Advanced - California League) - 32 seasons San Jose has had a professional baseball team since 1962, starting with the San Jose Bees. Their affiliation with the San Francisco Giants began in 1988. Toronto Blue Jays -Dunedin Blue Jays(Dunedin, FL - A-Advanced - Florida State League) - 33 seasons There have actually been two different incarnations of the minor league club aligned with Toronto: the short-lived Dunedin Blue Jays of 1978-79, and the current iteration, which started play in 1987. Dunedin is also the major league Blue Jays' spring training home. Chicago White Sox -Birmingham Barons(Birmingham, AL - AA - Southern League) - 34 seasons Professional baseball in Birmingham dates back to at least the Birmingham Coal Barons in 1885. The current incarnation relocated from Montgomery, Alabama in 1981, and has partnered with the White Sox since 1986. They achieved some notoriety outside the baseball world in 1994 when Michael Jordan played with the team during his basketball hiatus. Baltimore Orioles -Frederick Keys(Frederick, MD - A-Advanced - Carolina League) - 38 seasons The Orioles affiliated with the Hagerstown Suns in 1981, then maintained that relationship through the team's relocation in 1989. Professional baseball has been a presence in Frederick since 1915, although there was a gap of several decades from 1930-1989 where the city did not have a team. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. Atlanta Braves -Danville Braves(Danville, VA - Rookie - Appalachian League) - 38 seasons Atlanta's relationship with the Appalachian League Braves goes back to when the team was located in Pulaski, Virginia, starting in 1982. Atlanta affiliated with the Pulaski Braves for eleven seasons, then the team moved to Danville, where they continue to play today. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. Chicago Cubs -Iowa Cubs(Des Moines, IA - AAA - Pacific Coast League) - 39 seasons The Iowa Oaks had several different affiliates during the first twelve or so years of existence, but finally struck a lasting relationship when they joined up with the Cubs in 1981. The spent their first year as a Cubs affiliate as the Oaks, then changed their name the following season. New York Mets -Kingsport Mets(Kingsport, TN - Rookie - Appalachian League) - 40 seasons The Kingsport club has typically been named for its parent team, having existed in some form since 1921 when they began play as the Kingsport Indians. They have been affiliated with the New York Mets since 1980. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. St. Louis Cardinals -Johnson City Cardinals(Johnson City, TN - Rookie - Appalachian League) - 45 seasons The Johnson City Yankees became the Johnson City Cardinals when they affiliated with St. Louis in 1975. Johnson City has had a baseball club in some form since at least 1910, with the Johnson City Soldiers. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. Minnesota Twins -Elizabethton Twins(Elizabethton, TN - Rookie - Appalachian League) - 46 seasons The Twins twins have been partnered since 1974, tied with the Red/Mustangs as the longest affiliation in Rookie level ball. Elizabethton has never had another major league parent club. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. Cincinnati Reds -Billings Mustangs(Billings, MT - Rookie - Pioneer League) - 46 seasons The Reds and the Mustangs have shared a relationship since 1974, the longest affiliation in the Pioneer League. The Billings club has existed since 1948, with a five year hiatus during the 1960's. They are currently marked as a contraction candidate. Boston Red Sox -Pawtucket Red Sox(Pawtucket, RI - AAA - International League) - 50 seasons The PawSox's affiliation with the Red Sox began in 1970, but almost ended less than a decade later, when the team (briefly rechristened the Rhode Island Red Sox) was in massive debt, taken over by the league, and effectively dissolved. However, a local businessman stepped in and was awarded a new franchise, which took over the Pawtucket Red Sox brand, maintaining a consistent identity. Change is on the horizon, however, as the team intends to relocate to Worcester, Massachusetts for the 2021 season. Kansas City Royals -Omaha Storm Chasers(Omaha, NE - AAA, Pacific Coast League) - 51 seasons The Royals are one of only two teams (the other being the Tampa Bay Rays) with an affiliate that has remained constant since their inception. Both the Omaha and Kansas City teams were founded in 1969, and Kansas City has never had a different AAA team. The Storm Chasers were known as the Omaha Royals through most of their history, from 1969 to 2010, briefly re-branding as the Omaha Golden Spikes from 1999-2001 before becoming Royals again. They adopted their current name in 2011. Philadelphia Phillies -Reading Fightin Phils(Reading, PA - AA, Eastern League) - 53 seasons Established in 1967 as the Reading Phillies, the "Fightins" (as they have been known since 2013) have never been affiliated with another franchise. Baseball in Reading dates back to at least 1858, and city has had affiliated minor league baseball off and on since 1927. The Philadelphia Phillies bought the team outright in 1998. Detroit Tigers -Lakeland Flying Tigers(Lakeland, FL - A-Advanced, Florida State League) - 57 seasons The Tigers began their alliance with the Lakeland Tigers in 1963. Lakeland has had a baseball team since 1960, briefly affiliating with the Indians and Giants before beginning a relationship with Detroit that has lasted for over half a century. They were renamed the Flying Tigers in 2006 as an homage to the Lakeland School of Aeronautics, which trained thousands of pilots during World War II. The Flying Tigers play in Joker Marchant Stadium, which has served as the Spring Training home of the Tigers since 1966.
On September 23, 2019, about 1157 eastern daylight time, an experimental amateur-built Vans RV-6, N12033, sustained substantial damage when it impacted trees and terrain while on approach to South Lakeland Airport (X49) Lakeland, Florida. The airline transport pilot received serious injuries while the passenger was uninjured. The airplane was privately owned and operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the personal flight, which departed Zephyrhills Municipal Airport (ZPH), Zephyrhills, Florida about 1135. The pilot departed ZPH around 1135 for a flight to X49 to conduct a few take-off and landings with a passenger. While on approach to runway 32 the airplane drifted to the left, then impacted trees and terrain about halfway down the runway. A post-accident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed an undetermined amount of fuel in the right fuel tank, and no fuel in the left fuel tank, which was breached. Flight control continuity was confirmed for all primary flight controls from the control surface to the cockpit controls. According to FAA airman records, the pilot held an airline transport pilot certificate with a rating for airplane multi-engine land, and commercial pilot privileges for airplane single-engine land. In addition, he held a flight instructor certificate with ratings for airplane multi-engine, airplane single-engine, and instrument airplane. He was issued a BasicMed certificate on March 5, 2018. The weather conditions reported about 1150 at LAL, about 4.3 miles northeast of the accident site, included visibility 10 statute miles, broken clouds at 3,700 ft above ground level, wind from 080 at 9 knots, temperature 28C, dew point 19C, and a barometric altimeter setting of 30.06 inches of mercury.

What to Expect
Wind: While we're inland, the winds can still take out trees and power lines. If there are any trees that may fall on to your house, at the very least avoid the areas of your house that would be damaged until the winds have subsided. During the 2004 hurricane season some areas of Lakeland were without power for 2 weeks, and during Irma there were outages state-wide for 8 days, have a plan in place in the event of it happening again. If you are on a well for your water no power means no water. If this is you it's a good idea to fill up the tub with water before the storm hits so that you can at least use the water to flush your toilet. Don't park under trees, your car will thank you if the tree comes down. Pick up loose articles, if you don't the wind will - then it becomes a projectile. Rain: We're near the Lake Wales Ridge, which is the highest ground in central Florida, and Dorian will be landing on the East coast and traveling across the state. This means that storm surge and coastal flooding won't affect us, however any lakes or rivers in the area may break their banks and flood the surrounding area in times of excess rainfall, Peace River is already in a minor flood stage and the Alafia is already near flood stage, plan for them to break their banks. Check the flood zone maps to see if you're in an area likely to flood; if you are, please look below for sandbag locations and consider relocating prior to the storm reaching us. Due to the size and speed of the storm it will likely be dumping rain on us for 24+ hours, flood chances are high. Don't drive in the storm. We really shouldn't have to mention this, it's a bad idea, don't do it.
The official recommendation from the BoCC is to prepare a kit for 72 hours, but preparing for longer is never a bad idea. What follows is a very basic list of supplies to have on hand for your preparedness kit, it is by no means exhaustive. More detailed lists may be found on the web.
Water - Recommended 1 gallon per person per day.
Non-Perishable Food - If power goes out, your refrigerator won't keep very long.
Medicine - Make sure you have a stock of any essential medications, if we lose power it may be difficult to fill prescriptions.
Dry Ice - Available at Publix, this will buy you more time for your refrigerated goods. Assuming a well-sealed container it should last you a few days.
Weather Radio - Battery-operated, this will allow you to recieve updates even without power.
Batteries - Spares for anything you need that takes batteries.
Matches - If you have a gas stove, you can still cook. Just use the matches to light the burner. Otherwise, this is still useful for the candles.
Charcoal/Lighter Fluid/Propane - If you don't have a gas stove, stock up to be able to grill if power is out.
Pet Supplies - Food, mainly. Anything else your furry friends will need to ride out the storm is also good to have.
Gasoline - Fill up your tank before the storm, a shortage of gas afterwards isn't unheard of. If you have a generator, stock up in case of power outage.
Plywood - Depending on the severity of the winds boarding up your windows can save you a lot of problems. If you choose not to, stay away from sliding glass doors and windows during the storm, the wind can blow them out and launch items through them.
Sandbags - To help prevent flood waters from encroaching.
Tarps - Use them with the sandbags for a better water barrier.
The following shelters will be activated at 08:00 Sunday, September 1st:
Lake Region High School, 1995 Thunder Road, Eagle Lake - This is the only pet-friendly shelter currently scheduled to be activated, you must have up-to-date records and a carrier. Food is not provided.
Per the Polk County BoCC, the following is the recommended sequence when seeking shelter:
In-place Shelter - plan to remain in residence during the emergency, if possible.
Evacuate to Friends or Relative Residence - if forced to evacuate, it is less traumatic for all concerned to be sheltered with familiar people, in more comfortable surroundings.
Evacuate the Area - other people leaving this area or areas in the projected path of the storm will also be on the road; leave at least 48-72 hours before the storm is expected to strike.
Evacuate to the Hotel/Motel - make arrangements early as rooms will fill quickly with other evacuees.
Evacuate to a Public Shelter - please see the Public Shelter policy. To obtain a Polk County Public Shelter Map, visit Polk County Public Library or Publix Super Market near you.
A printable map of potential public shelters is available here. This list shows all current possible shelters. Shelters will be activated based on need, not all of them will necessarily be activated. Some shelters are pet-friendly, most aren't. There are also a handful of special needs shelters. If you will likely need one of these special shelters it is recommended to pre-register.
Sandbags are available at Fire Stations throughout Polk county, limit 10 per person, free of charge. These are self-service, so bring your shovel to fill your bags. All sites have had their hours extended so they will all be operating each day.
Know your flood zones! If you're in one plan accordingly. An interactive map of the FEMA flood zones is available here. A map of current flood gauges is available here. Alafia River is already near flood stage, and Peace River is already at a minor flood stage.
Traffic alerts throughout the state can be viewed here to help you plan. In case of evacuation, a map of evacuation routes may be found here. It's from 2016 - I can't find a more recent one - but the routes should be largely the same. Polk County does not have designated evacuation zones, evacuations will be ordered based on landmarks or geographic region. It is recommended to evacuate 72-48 hours prior to the storm's arrival if you don't have adequate shelter.

I am about to go on a road trip!! We are unfortunately on a fairly tight schedule for part one, as one friend has a job interviews and another has to catch a flight. For part 2, we have a bit more wiggle room but not too much, because ultimately my girlfriend then needs to catch a flight in Baltimore as well. The loose itinerary is: Part 1: - Houston TX - May 15th - Santa Fe NM - Denver CO - Lake Tahoe NV - San Francisco CA - Los Angeles CA - Las Vegas NV - Grand Canyon AZ - Tucson AZ - Houston TX - May 31st/July 1st Part 2: - Houston TX - July 1st/2nd - New Orleans LA - Mobile AL - Lakeland FL - Orlando FL - Savannah GA - Charleston SC - Norfolk VA - Baltimore MD - July 10th/11th First of all, I’ll start with the obligatory “any suggestions?” Second of all, the main reason that I am posting here: is it generally safe/legal to pull over and camp, or sleep in the car on the side of a highway? We are having a hard time finding people to stay with or other free/inexpensive lodging at most places we plan to visit, and we don’t have a lot of money to burn on Airbnb’s or hotels unless it’s an emergency. Going off of that, how do I go about finding good BLM land? Third of all, what types of dash cams and/or GoPros would y’all recommend for documenting the trip? And should I get one of each? I think that’s it. Thank y’all! Edit: added the dates that I know of, and also: I didn’t put every stop above, just the ones I know for sure that we’re planning to make. For example, between Denver and Lake Tahoe, were definitely stopping somewhere because we’re not crazy. We just don’t know where.
Hello all, I am an Ohio resident and my parents just moved to Lakeland, FL recently so I'll probably be making frequent trips to the area now. I'm an amusement park enthusiast, I currently have a Cedar Fair platinum pass since I visit Cedar Point and Kings Island frequently. I thought about getting a BGT annual pass to go with that since I'll probably make a few trips a year to the area. My first question is how long is the pass valid for? Is it from January 1- December 31st or is it for one year after the date of purchase? Also, does price fluctuate on the pass? With Cedar Fair, the cost goes up the longer you wait. Plus I'm thinking about getting the 4 FL park add-on so I could also go to SWO with the pass. My first visit to the area will be in July and tentatively planning a fall visit and since I work a flexible job, I plan on making an extended visit during the winter, because Ohio winter's are horrible.
On March 13, 2019, at 1617 eastern daylight time, a Beech E55, N15VK, sustained substantial damage during a gear-up landing at the Albert Whitted Airport (SPG), St. Petersburg, Florida. The commercial pilot and the passenger were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the personal flight that departed Lakeland Linder International Airport (LAL) Lakeland, Florida, at 1515. The pilot stated that became distracted and did not extend the landing gear before landing. The airplane slid on the runway resulting in substantial damage to the left wing's rear spar. The propellers and flaps were also damaged. The airplane was equipped with a gear warning aural alert; however, it did not sound for unknown reasons. The pilot held a commercial pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single-engine land and sea, multi-engine land, and instrument airplane. He also held a certified flight instructor certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. The pilot's last Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) third-class medical certificate was issued on February 11, 2019. He reported a total of 3,706 hours, of which, 1,217 hours were in multi-engine aircraft. Weather reported at SPG at 1653included wind from 090 at 11 knots, visibility 10 miles, and clear skies.
On December 22, 2018, at 1012 eastern standard time, a BRM Aero Bristell , N587BL, was destroyed when it impacted terrain shortly after takeoff from Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (LAL), Lakeland, Florida. The student pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Industrial Mobile Cranes Inc. under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a training flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight. Review of preliminary air traffic control communications provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) revealed that the student pilot had completed two landings to runway 27 in a left traffic pattern, and prior to the third landing, the tower controller instructed the pilot to fly a right traffic pattern after departure to avoid a potential conflict with another airplane operating in the airspace. The pilot responded with, "affirmative, right traffic after this touch and go." There were no further radio transmissions from the pilot. Review of a surveillance video from a building located on the airport showed the accident airplane climbing after departing runway 27. Subsequently, the airplane entered a left turn, and started to descend. The airplane impacted terrain in a near vertical attitude and an explosion was observed immediately after impact. Review of photographs provided by LAL airport operations personnel, revealed that the airplane impacted an open field on the airport, about 800 ft south of runway 27, and came to rest upright. A postcrash fire consumed a majority of cockpit and fuselage. The left and right leading edges of the wings displayed significant aft crushing. All flight control surfaces were observed. The empennage remained intact and showed little fire damage. The engine was located with the fuselage, it sustained impact and fire damage. All three propeller blades were fragmented. The student pilot's flight instructor reported that he had not been contacted by the student on the day of the accident flight, and he was unaware that the student had planned to complete a solo flight. He reported that it is routine for his students to contact him, prior to solo flight, so that they may discuss the weather and other particulars for the flight. According to FAA airmen records, the pilot held a student pilot certificate. He did not hold a medical certificate, as he was operating under sport pilot provisions. Review of his logbook revealed that his flight training began in October 2015 and he accumulated 108.8 total hours of flight time. The pilot had accumulated 32.8 hours in the accident airplane, of which 6.4 hours were solo. In the past 90 days, he had logged 8.6 hours, all in the accident airplane. The logbook contained a solo endorsement for the accident airplane. The single-engine low-wing special light sport airplane was powered by a Rotax 912 ULS engine, that drove a three-blade fixed-pitch propeller. According to airplane logbook entries, an annual and 100-hour condition inspection was completed in April 2018. The airplane had accumulated 390.8 hours of total flight time at the time of that inspection. The weather conditions reported at 0950 at the airport were, wind 360 at 5 knots, visibility 10 statute miles, scattered clouds at 1,800 ft above ground level (agl), temperature 12C, dew point 8C, barometric altimeter setting 30.18 inches of mercury. The wind conditions reported at 1053, were 310 at 12 knots, gusting to 16 knots. The wreckage was retained for further examination.
On December 17, 2018, about 1210 eastern standard time, a Cessna 152, N4886B, experienced a partial loss of engine power and was substantially damaged during a forced landing in a plowed field near Bell Glade, Florida. The private pilot and pilot-rated passenger were uninjured. The airplane was registered to Troupial Aviation and operated by Orange Wings Aviation as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident and no flight plan was filed for the cross-country flight. The flight originated from Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (LAL), Lakeland, Florida around 1035 and was destined for Pompano Beach Airpark (PMP), Pompano Beach, Florida. According to the pilot, they departed LAL and climbed to a cruise altitude of 5,500 ft mean sea level (msl) for the flight to PMP. After the initial descent and level-off at 2,500 msl, the engine gradually began losing power. He applied carburetor heat which initially restored cruise power. Several minutes later another partial loss of engine power occurred, accompanied by engine vibration. The pilot applied carburetor heat, however the engine continued to lose power and the airplane was unable to maintain altitude. He declared an emergency and elected to execute a forced landing to a plowed field. He completed the emergency checklist with the passenger, and then performed a soft field landing. During the landing rollout, the airplane flipped over shortly after the nosewheel made ground contact. Examination of the wreckage by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed that the airplane was intact and came to rest inverted at the edge of the field. The top of third of the vertical stabilizer was fractured and bent about 80 to the left. The right horizontal stabilizer and elevator were impact damaged. One propeller was bent aft with little or no chordwise scratching. The engine was examined at the direction and under the supervision of an FAA inspector after it was recovered to the operator's facility. During the examination the inspector noted that the upper valve spring seat on the No. 1 cylinder was broken.. The cylinder was retained for further examination. According to FAA airman records, the pilot held a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. The pilot was issued a first-class medical certificate on January 6, 2017, with the limitation "must wear corrective lenses." According to the pilot's logbook, he had accumulated 66.3 hours of flight time, all of which were in the accident airplane make and model. According to FAA airworthiness records, the airplane was manufactured in 1979. It was equipped with a Lycoming O-235-L2C, 110-horsepower engine that drove a fixed-pitch propeller. According to airplane maintenance logbooks, the most recent 100-hour inspection was completed on November 16, 2018, at that time the airframe had accumulated 3657.9 total hours of operation. A separate log maintained by the operator showed that the airplane had flown about 45 hours since that inspection.
2018.11.08 22:25 justme_mbNeed to know if a PI can help with a situation and if so, what cost
I'll try to be brief. The company I work for provided services to a customer worth just under $2700. The customer paid by check then stopped payment on the check with the excuse that the services were not complete/unsatisfactory. With my limited search skills and access I was able to find proof that this was a deliberate fraud attempt. We reported this to the sheriff, a case was opened and the state attorney office issued a warrant. As it stands now, according to the state attorney office, the case is at a standstill due to a failure to appear by the customer, unless this customer were to be stopped for a traffic violation or some other circumstance that would result in a check of some time that would bring up the warrant. The amount of the loss is a big amount for our small company. We'd like to make sure she goes to court over this, though we understand it is unlikely we will actually recoup any losses. We are of the opinion that this is probably not the only types of fraud/shenanigans this customer has been part of. Ideally, we'd like to find out where she is, so we can happen upon her, call the sheriff dept and basically say, hey look, there is this person with a warrant out. The state attorney prosecutor said she couldn't recommend we do this, but didn't see any reason why we couldn't or shouldn't. I'm not getting anywhere in finding where this person is, I don't use, so can't really search social media with any skill. The info I do have is: Name, including copy of marriage license, but don't know if she's still using that name as her husband has died, with date of birth Driver license info Address at the time of the services-don't know if current as the property was sold a a shady church. Phone number-we haven't called it in awhile, don't want to call it from the office and arouse her suspicions-make her hide more. Vehicle including VIN purchased new as part of the fraud Name of lendelienholder on her vehicle Photo from a mugshot of a previous arrest Would a PI be able to help us actually find this person with that info? Should we just do drive by ourselves of the address we have hoping to spot her? Call the number we have in the event it is still her? If a PI could help, what would be a reasonable cost? We are in Lakeland, FL. We are trying to keep the cost as low as possible as we are really not expecting that we'll ever get any money back from her but we do want her prosecuted. Would appreciate any guidance!
On April 20, 2018, about 1700 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-34-220T, N8404B, sustained substantial damage when it impacted a taxiway following a loss of directional control during takeoff from the Airglades Airport (2IS), Clewiston, Florida. The airline transport pilot and three passengers were not injured. The airplane was registered to GILU Corp, Middletown, Delaware, and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the cross-country flight, that originated from Lakeland, Florida, about 1550, with an intended destination of 2IS. The pilot reported that following an uneventful flight, he intended to practice landings at 2IS. After entering the airport traffic pattern for runway 31, he extended his downwind leg, and ultimately initiated a go-around due to traffic on the runway. The pilot stated that he flew to the west in order to provide spacing between himself and the other traffic and reentered the traffic pattern on a mid-field left downwind for runway 31. Following an uneventful full-stop landing, the pilot taxied back to runway 31. After takeoff, the pilot remained within the airport traffic pattern and intended on conducting a touch-and-go landing. The pilot further stated that after landing on runway 31, he set the flaps and advanced both throttles to takeoff power. Shortly after, he felt the airplane yaw to the right, observed an over-boost indicator light for the right engine, and lost control of the ruddesteering as the airplane exited the runway. The pilot said that once the airplane was in the grass, he regained control and reduced both engines to idle and attempted to stop the airplane. However, the airplane struck the edge of a taxiway that spanned perpendicular to his direction of travel and the airplane became airborne briefly before landing on the opposite side of the taxiway. Subsequently, all three landing gear collapsed, and the airplane came to rest upright. Post-accident examination of the airplane revealed that the fuselage and right wing were structurally damaged.
2018.04.03 22:14 brickfadMadden CFM needs to be drastically improved
I’ve played Madden for most of the past decade. I own every Madden dating back to Madden 11, and I’ve put thousands of hours into the game over the years. I’m getting so frustrated with the “product” EA puts out that I’m considering not buying Madden 19. They don’t even try anymore. Yes, Madden 18 is on balance a slight improvement over Madden 17, but at this point, each iteration of Madden is a glorified roster update and I’m sick of playing a broken, glitchy game. I don’t really play MUT because I don’t like micro-transactions and it doesn’t appeal to me. I spend 99% of my time in CFM because I love the GM aspect of sports video games. I love putting together the best roster possible. I spend hours in the offseason deciding which free agents to sign, which players to trade/cut, and which players to draft. You would think that EA would at least devote a little bit of time each year making improvements to arguably its most popular game mode instead of churning out the same product year in and year out. Nope. Aside from a handful of changes (many of which are aesthetic), CFM has been practically the same thing since M16, and largely similar to how it was back in M25. That is to say, there are a lot of underdeveloped/missing features and limited opportunities for customization. Let’s start with owner mode because that’s how I usually play CFM. The unique features of owner mode are that you can relocate your team, upgrade/rebuild your stadium, set prices on merchandise and concessions, hire/fire staff, and manage media relations. Each of these is done rather poorly. Back in Madden 12 and before, you could take your team and relocate it to pretty much any city in North America with over 100,000 people. Want to have a pro team in Lakeland, FL, even though it’s 30 minutes away from Tampa? Go for it, if you can convince the league. Want to relocate the Patriots to Boston just for the hell of it? Go for it. Want 6 teams within a 100-mile radius? I’m sure you could find a way to do that. You could select a logo, pick a name and colors, design uniforms, and construct a stadium. It wasn’t perfect, but you had a ton of control. I used to rampage through the league as the Los Angeles Knights in Madden 12. All of that was taken away in the piece of shit that was Madden 13 and reintroduced in a limited capacity in Madden 25. M25’s relocation features were fresh and location specific, but you only had 17 relocation options, three logo/name options for each city, and three possible uniform designs for each name, many of which looked ugly/amateurish or blatantly copied another team’s uniform design (looking at you, Seattle). You couldn’t move teams back to old markets after leaving, and you couldn’t realign divisions, so you could theoretically have an AFC East that spans from Los Angeles to London and from Buffalo to Miami. I figured it would be improved upon in later Maddens, but aside from changing a few of the names in M15, literally NOTHING has changed since. I’m not asking for much here, and it’s not all that difficult. All EA has to do is copy over NHL’s relocation/expansion feature that allows people to select practically any city, set any nickname, pick from a suite of logos and colors, design uniforms, and construct arenas. If NHL can do it, why can’t Madden? Another thing that bothers me is the price setting feature. It’s extremely basic and there’s literally nothing intuitive about it; to generate more revenue all you need to do is drop prices until they say “great value.” Nothing else is worth the time/effort. Why even include it? In addition, staff needs an improvement. In Madden 12, you had a more robust staff: on top of the HC, training staff, and scouting team, you had an OC, DC, and STC, all of which provided bonuses and are extremely important to the real game (just look at the difference between the 2016 Falcons with Kyle Shanahan and the 2017 Falcons with Steve Sarkisian). Later Maddens added more to HC’s, like progression bonuses and free agent signing influence, but they stripped away the coordinators for whatever reason, leaving important coaches out of the game. Beyond owner mode, other nitpicky things about CFM:
Formation subs desperately need to be improved. They weren’t even in the game for a long time despite fans clamoring for them until Madden 17 added a barebones version. You still can’t play WR at RB or vice versa, you can’t play safeties at LB, and you can’t put DL or OL at FB. All of those are relatively common in the NFL. Moreover, the depth chart is super restricted; a lot of teams have a WR (think Edelman, Pryor, Sanu, or Miller) as their QB3 to save a roster spot, but Madden doesn’t allow that.
Madden 17 made UDFA’s more common and more important, but you can only sign them to 1-year deals that are worth more than deals for some veterans, which is absurd. UDFA’s usually sign 3-year deals worth very little money.
Every player on my offensive line, including my backups who never play a snap, makes the Pro Bowl, because Madden doesn’t base Pro Bowl calculations on number of downs played. Each of my players gets ~30K XP, so I end up with normal dev rookies who came out at ~73 OVR jumping up to ~90 OVR with quick dev in a single season. It’s great for stocking up on draft picks, but ridiculously unbalances the game. This was a problem in Madden 17 that numerous people have pointed out, but EA refuses to do anything about it.
I’ve encountered a save glitch where the game will freeze when I go to save about 50% of the time, forcing me to quit out of and re-launch the game.
I know I can’t expect perfection, but I think it’s fair to expect EA to dedicate some time to CFM to make it better. I’m not even gonna get into all the other issues with the game because that would take hours to write about. Tl;dr CFM needs improvements but EA won’t do anything about it because doesn’t care EDIT: I found this article and it basically sums up how I feel about CFM: https://www.usgamer.net/articles/madden-18-connected-franchise-no-improvements-cfm-preview
On March 4, 2017, about 1330 eastern standard time, a Beech B-60, N39AG, was destroyed by impact and a postcrash fire following an uncontrolled descent in Duette, Florida. The private pilot/owner and the flight instructor were fatally injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the instructional flight, which was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. According to friends and representatives of the pilot's family, the pilot recently purchased the airplane, and the purpose of the flight was to complete ground and flight training in the airplane to meet insurance requirements. According to preliminary air traffic control (ATC) and radar data obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the airplane departed Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) about 1240, and cancelled flight following services with ATC about 10 minutes later. For about the next 30 minutes, radar data depicted an overlapping track of left and right 360-degree, and figure-eight turns consistent with airwork performed during a training or evaluation flight. The track was over a rural area northeast of SRQ and in the immediate vicinity of the accident site. A family, whose farm was less than 1 mile from the accident site, witnessed the accident from their property, and was interviewed at their home; their statements were consistent throughout. The witnesses were familiar with airplanes and their engine sounds, and airplanes frequently flew and maneuvered over their property. The witnesses said their attention was drawn to the airplane by its sound. The airplane sounded loud as if it was at "low" altitude, but the engine sound was smooth. They went outside and watched the airplane's flight, and its subsequent descent. With a model of an airplane in his hand, one witness demonstrated an airplane in straight and level flight, going "kind of slow," as the nose gradually pitched up. He then demonstrated the airplane suddenly banking to one side, and entering a spiraling descent. He said the engine sound was smooth and continuous throughout, and the engine sound increased throughout the airplane's descent, until it disappeared from his view and he heard the sounds of impact. The witness added that as the airplane disappeared behind the trees and out of view, he "heard him give it gas," and described an engine sound increasing to very high rpm. Two other members of the family provided nearly identical statements, and a fourth family member said he heard the airplane approach and all the way to ground contact, but did not see it. The witness, an engine mechanic, said the engine sounds were smooth and continuous throughout. A group of motorcyclists were travelling on the state highway adjacent to the crash site when their attention was drawn to the airplane. They could not hear it over the sound of their motorcycles, but watched as the airplane departed straight and level flight in a near vertical, spiraling descent. According to FAA records, the pilot held a private pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single engine land and multiengine land. He did not possess an instrument rating. The pilot's most recent FAA second-class medical certificate was issued on April 4, 2016, and he reported 800 total hours of flight experience on that date. The flight instructor held a commercial pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single engine land, multiengine land, and instrument airplane. He held a flight instructor certificate with ratings for single engine, multiengine, and instrument airplane. His most recent FAA second-class medical certificate was issued October 6, 2014. The flight instructor reported 20,569 total hours of flight experience on that date. The six-seat, twin-engine, low-wing, retractable-gear airplane was manufactured in 1977 and was equipped with two Lycoming 310-horsepower reciprocating engines. According to the airplane's maintenance records, the most recent annual inspection was completed on March 2, 2017, at 3,271.6 total aircraft hours. The 1350 automated weather observation at Lakeland Regional Airport (LAL), located 23 nautical miles north of the accident site, included clear skies, 10 statute miles visibility, and wind from 005 at 10 knots gusting to 20 knots. The temperature was 24 C, the dew point was 8 C, and the altimeter setting was 30.39 inches of mercury. The wreckage was examined at the accident site, and all major components were accounted for at the scene. Angularly-cut tree branches were observed in the trees above, as well as scattered on the ground. The airplane came to rest immediately adjacent to three craters which were each about 3 feet deep. The craters were spaced at a distance consistent with the nose, and both engines of the airplane. The postimpact fire consumed a majority of the airplane, including the cockpit instruments and switches. Seat belt use could not be confirmed, though a latched buckle was found in the area of the right seat. Flight control cable continuity was confirmed from the flight controls to the cockpit area. The flaps and landing gear were retracted. The trim actuators were within normal operating range. The fuel selector handle panel in the cockpit was separated from its mounting structure. The left fuel selector handle was near the ON position. The left fuel selector valve cable was pulled out of the valve and the valve was in a non-operating position. The right fuel selector was in the ON position. Both engines were partially separated from the airframe. The three propeller blades from each engine were found separated from their respective hubs in the impact craters. One of the left propeller blades exhibited a large impact to its leading edge and all blades exhibited similar bending and cambered side polishing. The engines were examined at a recovery facility in Jacksonville, Florida. Both engines displayed significant impact and fire damage, and neither could be rotated by hand. The engine accessories were destroyed by impact and fire, and could not be tested. The fuel servos of each engine contained a small amount of fuel. Both engine oil sumps were consumed by fire. The compressor housings of both the left and right engine turbochargers displayed radial scuff marks adjacent to their respective impellers. The nose of each engine starter displayed rotational scoring adjacent to the engine crankshaft starter gear. Visual inspection of the engine drive trains, valve trains, and individual cylinders revealed signatures consistent with normal wear and lubrication.
On November 13, 2016, about 1400 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 152, N94292, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a total loss of engine power near Miami, Florida. The private pilots were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and a visual flight rules flight plan was filed for the instructional flight operated by Dean International, Inc., which was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.The flight originated at Lakeland Linder Airport (LAL), Lakeland, Florida about 1220, and was destined for Miami Executive Airport (TMB), Miami, Florida. Each pilot provided a written statement, and both statements were consistent throughout. The pilots described the flight as a "buddy" flight, the purpose of which was to build flight time for each. The airplane was in cruise flight over the Everglades about 2,000 feet when the crew noted some engine "roughness." They noted that the engine oil temperature was "normal" but the engine oil pressure indication was "low." The pilot on the controls turned the airplane towards the nearest airport, which was 18 miles from its position at that time. Approximately 1 minute later, the engine stopped producing power, and the crew selected a road for the forced landing. During the descent, an engine restart was attempted and was unsuccessful. The airplane touched down prior to the road on soft, wet ground, nosed over, and came to rest inverted. The pilots egressed the airplane uninjured. The first pilot held a private pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single engine land and instrument airplane. His most recent first-class medical certificate was issued on September 8, 2015. The pilot reported 212.5 total hours of flight experience, all of which were in the accident airplane make and model. The second pilot held a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single engine land. His most recent first-class medical certificate was issued on July 11, 2016. The pilot reported 128.3 total hours of flight experience, all of which were in the accident airplane make and model. The two-seat, single-engine, high-wing airplane was manufactured in 1982 and was equipped with a Lycoming O-235 series engine. Its most recent 100-hour inspection was completed November 3, 2016 at 10,955 total aircraft hours, and the airplane had accrued 52 hours since that date. An engine overhaul was completed 246 aircraft hours prior to the accident. During recovery of the airplane, large cracks were noted in the engine crankcase in the vicinity of the number 2 cylinder. The airplane's engine was retained for further examination.
2016.11.18 17:50 MrTheSpork[D2 and D3] Playoff Preview and Primer - Round One
It's here it's here it's here! The new phonebooks playoffs are here! Will NWMSU and Mount Union defend their titles? Will a different D3 team break through to the championship for the second straight year? Can anyone stop the GSC, the MIAA, or the WIAC? And what exactly are Kohawks,Muskies, and Blue Streaks? Time to dive into (some) of these questions in the Round One preview! Note: There are a handful of non-playoff postseason games that I'll cover in a post later today. There are more than you'd expect.
Two eastern conference runners-up meet for the first time since 1997, despite just 100 miles separating the schools. The situations are two extremes: IUP heads to their 17th playoff game while the Falcons are new to the D2 playoffs; that difference is just one of the several that highlight the matchup.
IUP is an extremely high-scoring team, averaging 47.0 ppg including 29.2 ppg in the first half, but the Falcons' defense won't make any facet easy for them - FSU has allowed 166 points total this season, including three games sub-3 points, have hauled in nearly two INT/gm, and managed 38 sacks on the year.
The Hawks will need to rely more on their rushing attack, whose 278.5 ypg is 4th-best nationally, as they've thrown a playoffs-2nd worst 13 INTs - and FSU will make that hurt. Conversely, the Falcons aren't an offensive team, barely hitting 400 ypg to IUP's 502, so a shootout definitely favors the Hawks. This enters "unstoppable force-unmovable object" territory.
WSSU sneaked into the playoffs despite a #8 regional ranking, having won the CIAA and managed to hit the "earned access" requirement, and their reward is a crack at the perfect Pioneers. Post has, with two exceptions, blown past their entire schedule, punching their #2-seed ticket with a marquee rematch win against Assumption, 43-23, to capture the NE-10 championship.
Oddly, despite the surface differences, two very similar defenses will go up against two mostly balanced offenses: WSSU and Post both give up under 350 ypg for under 20 ppg, with the Pioneers holding a minor advantage in run defense to the Rams' pass defense lead. On offense, Post holds all advantages, but by relatively small leads across the board.
The Rams dropped two of their first three games before making their way unscathed, but with some near misses, through the CIAA. While the stats suggest the teams are relatively close, the CIAA is a step behind the NE-10 and Post looked better in their wins, especially to close out the season. If the Pioneers get rolling early, this could turn ugly, but a strong defensive stand early could hand some momentum to the Rams.
Last year's runner-up Shepherd didn't have a single close game in this undefeated season, yet surprisingly fell behind the #1 and #2 seeds in the final rankings. They'll play 2-loss Assumption as a consolation, but the Greyhounds have only lost to LIU-Post (including last week's 23-43 struggle for the NE-10 crown) and absolutely can't be overlooked in this first-ever matchup of the teams.
Shepherd's air-based offense has been the key to their success, with a 330+ ypg effort leading to nearly 40 ppg, but the Greyhounds rarely allow better than 150 yds in the air. Assumption's more balanced - 244.0 ypg passing, 188.5 ypg rushing - but the Rams have only allowed 100+ yards rushing twice this year.
Though AC has lost to Post twice, the 18-19 loss in the first game gives an idea of what the Greyhounds can do, and, while Shepherd has yet to win by fewer than ten points, the Rams have to be wary - Assumption's not had any other close games this year.
VSU is the #3 team in the GSC, but a thin SR2 and a strong conference pushed them to their high seed, hosting a UNCP team whose only loss is a 16-21 collapse against Tuskegee - the Braves gave up all 21 points in the 4th. The Blazers can rely on a more "battle-tested" team, as they've played four regionally-ranked teams this year, but their two losses to the GSC's leading teams don't inspire much confidence.
The Blazers hold a 40-yd advantage on offense but a 15-yd deficit on defense; a similar story exists in scoring. These are very closely-matched teams in somewhat similar situations, but only the Braves have actually beaten a playoff team, winning 20-17 over Winston-Salem in their first game.
The key for VSU is winning the TO battle, even by a single INT, to disrupt a solid Braves' offense; for Pembroke, a defense averaging ~8 TFL/gm could put the Blazers in long yardage situations, playing on passing inefficiency to overcome VSU's 300+ ypg air attack.
Different trajectories define these teams, with Newberry playing their best football recently in a ten-game win streak and Tuskegee slipping into the playoffs despite two upsets in their final four games. The Tigers, like fellow HBCU Winston-Salem, fell backwards into the #7 slot due to the "earned access" rule despite their 35-45 loss to 9-2 Virginia State.
The back half of the Tigers' schedule had a completely different feeling, especially following the massive upset to Kentucky State, and they'll need to play much, much better to beat red-hot Newberry, who's season finale 27-22 win over Wingate was the closest game they've had following their 29-28 slugfest at North Greenville.
With Newberry connecting on nearly 70% of their passes for 303 ypg and Tuskegee holding opponents to 145 ypg in the air, it'll be a contest to see which comes out ahead. If the Tigers look more like their first half, with wins over an FCS opponent and UNCP, it'll be a very tight game. Otherwise, Newberry has a big advantage on offense and a minor defensive lead and that will propel them to an easy win.
The only four-loss team in the playoffs (shockingly not a 7-seed) gets a shot to prove itself against a regional opponent. Though FIT and NGU are not conference-mates (NGU is independent), the proximity ensures both play a handful of shared opponents.
There are a handful of direct comparisons available for the teams: FIT beat Newberry 42-28 while NGU lost 28-29; NGU beat UWA 24-23, but FIT lost 35-45. That said, the Crusaders were crushed 21-52 by North Alabama in their worst loss of the season and the three games following the loss haven't inspired confidence, but FIT is slightly better since their UWA loss.
The Panthers are approaching 40 ppg this season while allowing under 20, relying on a solid rushing attack for most of their wins; unfortunately, that same ground game has resulted in 15 fumbles on the year, one of the worst marks in the playoffs. NGU, on the other hand, doesn't have nearly the same TO woes but are 4th-worst in the playoffs in scoring, at 32.6 ppg. Curiously, the Crusaders are the nation-leading red zone offense, converting on 97% of their trips.
Similar situations for both teams: 10-win streaks with victories over good conference foes, but a handful of close games. ESU received their first-ever home playoff game due to SoS, most likely, as the MIAC holds a very slight advantage over the NSIC.
UMD's offense is one of the strongest in the playoffs, averaging 542 ypg for 46.8 ppg, and, with the Bulldogs also giving up a playoffs-worst 30.7 ppg, there are all the makings of a shootout brewing here. ESU will need a stronger showing than their typical 33.9 ppg which, while top 50, pales next to the onslaught potential.
The Hornets give up a dismal 3 sacks/gm, second-worst of the playoff teams, and offensively aren't at the same level as UMD; they'll need to leverage TOs to their advantage, because otherwise an arms race probably won't end with their advantage.
The Cougar battle should be an interesting one, as both competitors smashed their way through respective conferences, but APU went 1-2 in non-con games, both losses relatively close. It's the first playoff appearance for APU and the first home playoff game for USF, marking each team's best season to date since both moved to D2 following the completion of the 2012 NAIA season.
The western Cougars were shocked by last week's loss at Colorado Mesa, 24-33, but APU managed to hang on for the #7 slot just ahead of Southern Arkansas despite their sole marquee wins both against 7-3 Central Washington. Azusa excels at scoring defense, marking a national #5 14.4 ppg and #1 50% red zone, and have a TO margin nearing +2.
USF cruised through their NSIC schedule, with the exception of a near miss in their 37-36 win over Bemidji State, but their marquee wins are potentially lesser than APU's. The northern Cougars are hard to pin down as they've won solidly throughout the year, but stats don't back up their dominance nearly as much as expceted.
The Mules have only had one close game following the loss to NWMSU at Arrowhead, managing three games at 40+ points to close out the season, but have first-time host Harding to contend with in their first meeting since 1968. The Bisons (yes, bisons) are surprisingly undefeated after crushing most of the GAC.
Harding is the most one-sided team in the nation, leading in rushing with a 388.5 ypg mark, 50 better than #2, but only hitting 53.1 ypg in the air. They've in some cases not completed a single pass during a game, running their option offense easily and efficiently; CMU's 138.5 ypg run defense will have their work cut out for them, but it does mitigate some of their average passing defense.
Perhaps surprisingly, Harding is very effective against the pass, keeping opponents under 160 ypg while also holding strong against the run for an excellent 69.7 ypg; they are the #1 defense in the nation, both in yardage and scoring. The Mules are a bit back in scoring offense at 37.9 ppg and, to beat the firewall that is the Bisons' defense, that'll need to step up big time.
Mesa rebounded strongly after two surprising losses that booted them out of the national rankings, pulling into their #5 seed with last week's win over APU; Commerce, meanwhile, has only one 1-point loss to Midwestern State and have crushed most of their other opponents. With both teams riding solid win streaks, this should be one of the more interesting matchups.
The Lions are, for lack of a better term, a middling playoff team, excelling only at ball control. The Mavericks generally rely on a high-scoring offense to win games, posting a playoffs-worst 30.7 ppg on defense but averaging better than 42 ppg on offense, though that does include the 87-14 rout of NM Highlands. Unfortunately, the playoff-worst rush defense also belongs to Mesa.
This game will, obviously, tell us a lot about each team, as there haven't been many opportunities for either team to make a serious statement. With the Mavs porous defense and the Lions... less awful defense, it's hard to pin down a track for the game; a blowout and a shootout seem equally likely.
MSU barely held on to their playoff slot, losing 28-30 to Eastern NM in their final game, but will head to their first-ever matchup with the Bulldogs. Ferris State plays just their second Texas team in their history, the first their 48-30 first round win against MSU conference-mate TAMU-Commerce.
FSU pulled close with GVSU in Allendale, but the Lakers' 28-point first half ended up too much to overcome. Their two losses, against the two GLIAC division champs, surprisingly weren't enough to bump the Bulldogs down to #3, but MSU is by no means an easy opponent: FSU needs to find an answer for RB Vincent Johnson, whose 19 rushing TDs are good for #3 nationally.
The two teams represent some of the lower-scoring teams in the playoff field, at ~35 ppg each, but MSU is second-to-last in the playoffs for rushing defense to FSU's #4 rushing offense mark. If the Bulldogs get it going on the ground, there's potential for FSU to run away early.
The Bearcats sneaked into the #3 slot, crushing most of the GLVC including their final five games, where SBU managed 50+ points four times; Mines, owing to one of the more powerful offenses in D2, slashed through their final seven games after back-to-back losses.
Mines has the nation's best passing offense and it's no contest: they average more than 370 ypg and chunk their way down the field en route to a 48.8 ppg output. Unfortunately, the Bearcats lag that scoring output by about a TD and allow a mediocre 220.5 ypg in the air. SBU can pass well, but they'll need to make up some offense on the ground, which Mines defends adequately.
While SBU is the higher seed the Orediggers could easily outplay their given level: they've taken down Azusa Pacific this year, albeit at home, and took Colorado Mesa to 2OT early in the year. Mines' offense can be unstoppable if it starts moving early, and there's a good chance we'll see 1000 combined yards in this game.
Redlands is the SCIAC autobid and they'll have their work cut out for them. Redlands isn't bad by any stretch (8x playoff competitor, undefeated conference slate), but MHB has six undefeated regular seasons over seven years and have beaten the Bulldogs twice in the postseason over the last five years.
The Crusaders have scored fewer than 55 pts just one time this season, usually pulling to a big, early lead before laying off some; Redlands, on the other hand, have scored more than 30 four times, twice against the bottom of the SCIAC. While it's certainly possible that the Bulldogs will play exceptionally well this game, chances are good the Cru will yet again advance to the second round.
The Wildcats continue their postseason streak, though they're chiefly concerned with a different streak, but to get out of the first round - and set up a likely rematch with MHB - they'll have to get through the ASC #2 team in HSU. Linfield's been excellent on defense, allowing more than 14 points just twice, but it's the offense that'll likely need to step up against a very good Cowboys defense.
Linfield and HSU share their sole loss, both against MHB, but Linfield ended up behind the 8-ball early, eventually giving up 66 points in one of the most lopsided games they've played. The Cowboys managed quite a bit better, holding the pinnacle of D3 offenses to just 20 points in the loss; however, the Wildcats look much improved from their game and some key defensive stops for either team could make this a very close game.
Wheaton (whose honor code makes BYU look like ASU) earned an at-large bid, losing just to CCIW champ (and rival) North Central, 25-35. The Thunder are undefeated in the first round, 9-0, but have a solid Huntingdon to get past for a tenth first-round win; Huntingdon took the USA South crown and autobid and slipped into the rankings just in time for the playoffs.
The Thunder have had their share of close calls - a 19-14 win over Carthage, a 10-6 win over Elmhurst - but there have been no major surprises as Wheaton's beaten everyone they were expected to beat. Huntingdon, meanwhile, looked vulnerable following the loss to NC Wesleyan, 31-41, to open conference play, but they've improved tremendously to close out the season, which includes a 71-0 win over Greensboro. Difficult to pick an obvious favorite, but if history's anything to go on, the Hawks will need to play very well to have a shot.
For the first time in their 118-year history, Rose-Hulman will compete in the playoffs. RHIT is an unusual school, with almost all their degree options in the STEM areas and essentially no graduate students, but the nerds have a football team that's headed north to play suburban Chicago team North Central. The Cardinals will be a very tough test for the Engineers, as the CCIW is markedly better than the HCAC and none of NCC's opponents have been within 10 points of the Cardinals.
For RHIT to win, it'll take the best game they've played this year, including last week's 74-6 win over Earlham; however, the Engineers took down ranked Franklin, 23-22, in September. While there's potential, the Engineers will need to keep up their ball-hawking defense and keep at least within striking distance throughout - a two-score, come-from-behind win probably isn't happening.
Though the teams are just eight miles apart in St. Paul, there couldn't be a larger gap between the programs. This will be the Eagles' first-ever playoff appearance while the Tommies have their sights set on a return to the championship game; the previous (and only) two games between these schools were easy UST wins, 41-0 and 63-14.
Northwestern is unfortunately 2-9 against MIAC schools since 2010, their two wins against Augsburg and St. Olaf, and the shared opponent in Augsburg this year is another strike against the Eagles: NW won 14-0, but the Tommies crushed the Auggies, 55-7. While there's never a sure thing in football, this is potentially the least likely upset in the first round.
The only undefeated matchup in the playoffs, this game pits the IIAC champ Coe against the MWC champ Monmouth, both having town through their schedules. The Kohawks have definitely had some close calls, but they've also notched solid wins over Central and Dubuque in the conference slate, while Monmouth doesn't have nearly the same resume, thus the traveling out to Iowa.
The Scots are solid on both sides of the ball, managing 48.9 ppg on offense and a nation-leading 8.4 ppg on defense. That said, the MWC hasn't put up much of a fight, as no other teams in the conference have received so much as a vote - this is the first test for Monmouth, and they'll play a top-20 offense for the first time this year. This might be the closest game of this round.
Two at-large teams face off, with Platteville, the most dangerous two-loss team, looking to set up a rematch with UW-Oshkosh in the second round and St. John's, the long-suffering MIAC runner-up, hoping for a third round rematch with rival St. Thomas. Outside of the few teams that finished ahead of them, both teams wrecked their conference, but Platteville lost to Oshkosh and Whitewater by a combined 15 points while St. John's fell to St. Thomas 21-33.
This is one of the most intriguing games of the first round, but the Johnnies are served well by playing at home; with two of the best defenses in the country facing off, there's a good chance this ends like Alabama-LSU - a low-scoring, defensive slugfest where the first score could be the only score.
Wash U will need to leverage every advantage they can find against the WIAC's #2 team to earn their first ranked win in over five years, but Oshkosh is very, very good. The Titans remain the last team to beat UWW in the regular season, but this year fell just 3 points shy in Whitewater; the Bears, meanwhile, sneaked in by virtue of a tiebreaker against Berry, taking the SAA autobid and playoff slot.
With Oshkosh holding a statistical advantage in most categories of interest, the Bears have a shot if they can use their offensive prowess to outgun the Titans. It's possible that, in a shootout, Wash U could emerge the victor, but it'll take their best game of the year.
Though BSU sits at just two losses, they've had two OTs and three close calls after dropping their first two games, going undefeated in the MASCAC despite their best efforts. The Bears aren't a great team, but they'll play one of the best teams in the northeast in Alfred, who hasn't lost a game yet and who's coming off a solid win over St. John Fisher to capture the E8 title.
The Bears are solid defensively, managing to hold opponents under 300 ypg, but they're a liability on offense and may not be able to score enough to keep pace with the Saxons' 37.6 ppg output.
WNE just made its appearance in the national poll, despite an undefeated mark, due entirely to a schedule that saw only two teams above .500 on it; they'll play Husson, who's torn through the ECFC, winning every conference matchup by multiple scores. Husson has the most absurd rush defense I've ever seen, as they've allowed 29.4 ypg over the season, so while they may not manage to move the ball themselves it's very difficult to do so yourself.
Husson's solid defense and strong offense could play hell with the Golden Bears' perfect season, but WNE has a very strong rushing attack. There's potential for either team to grab the lead early and maintain it throughout due to the defensive effort, but if either team comes back from a deficit, it'll likely be the Bears.
Mount Union (8/7) Mount Union Purple Raiders (9-1, 5-0 away) @ Hobart (18/19) Hobart Statesmen (9-1, 5-0 home)
There's zero precedent for UMU coming off a loss, so while they're the reigning champs this is in no way a gimme game. Hobart is just the second ranked opponent for the Purple Raiders this year, so while UMU could come out firing on all cylinders there's still a shot for the Statesmen to surprise the vaunted Raiders. However, this is the 25th consecutive playoff appearance for Mount Union, and they've posted a 91-15 record in the postseason.
For the first time in 20 years, the Raiders have to travel for a playoff game, but it will be a school-record seventh away game this year. UMU is still top ten in most statistical categories and holds opponents under 10 ppg; Hobart will need to rely on QB Shane Sweeney to get moving through the air, but this will be a massive uphill battle for the Statesmen.
RMC received the ODAC autobid on a tiebreaker and will head north to Baltimore in an attempt to end the Jays' undefeated season. This is the sixth straight season JHU has hosted a first round game, as they've been the class of the Mid-Atlantic for years and this year's senior class will leave with a 42-3 mark, setting the record for a single senior class.
The Yellow Jackets rank 6th for scoring defense at 11.5 ppg and allow scores on 52.6% of red zone trips, but the ODAC isn't especially deep and JHU will be by far their toughest matchup. With the Jays' offense one of the best in the country it'll take better play than RMC has had all year to keep close.
Olivet (RV/RV) Olivet Comets (9-1, 4-1 away) @ John Carroll (10/6) John Carroll Blue Streaks (9-1, 5-0 home)
The Blue Streaks were catapulted into championship contention with a massive win over Mount Union, handing the Purple Raiders their first regular season loss in a decade. JCU plays Olivet, a team headed to their second-ever playoffs (first in 2007) whose sole loss was to fringe playoff team St. John Fisher, 10-52. The Comets rely on a stingy run defense that's allowed just 65.6 ypg, holding two of their MIAA opponents to negative yardage.
John Carroll's sole non-con game was also their only loss, falling 14-33 to UW-Oshkosh to open the season. Since then, the Streaks have reeled off nine straight wins, including the 31-28 UMU triumph, and has held the always-tough OAC to 225.7 ypg. It'll likely be another defensive battle, but JCU can't afford to come out flat after their upset win.
Wesley heads across the Chesapeake to face Baltimore-area Stevenson in the first matchup of the regional teams. Stevenson is headed to their first-ever postseason appearance after the foundation of the program in 2010; the Wolverines are on their 12th-straight appearance. Owing to their proximity both teams have played Delaware Valley, with WU falling to the Aggies 14-21 in the opener while the Mustangs shut out DelVal, 19-0.
Both teams are pass-first, but Stevenson has forced 24 INTs this year en route to a #6 slot in TO margin at +1.70 and they'll abuse any mistakes Wesley makes; Wesley isn't as efficient at disrupting possessions, but they have a solid pass defense that's allowed just 164 ypg this year. Both teams average more than 36 ppg, but it'll likely be the defense that decides this game.
Wittenberg (20/17) Wittenberg Tigers (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Thomas More (14/15) Thomas More Saints (9-1, 4-0 home)
Cincinnati and Dayton separate these two teams, who've played four times since 20001. The Saints are still looking for their first win against Wittenberg, and they'll have a great shot in the national stage, but both sides have high-scoring offenses and shut-down defenses in one of the most closely-matched (on paper) games of the playoffs.
The Tigers are second only to Monmouth in scoring defense, allowing 9.6 ppg while managing more than 35 themselves, but TMC will be the best offense they've faced at 42.8 ppg and 517.9 ypg. While the Saints are relatively ordinary on defense, they've forced opponents to try to match their offensive onslaught and, but for their opening-game 39-43 loss to Franklin, only Carnegie Mellon's come close. It's another matchup of extreme offense and extreme defense.
It was a bit of a surprise to see D3's finest this far down the list - a game with JCU will be at the Streaks - but the undefeated 6x national champs play a Lakeland team that slipped into the playoffs as the NACC autobid. The Wisconsin schools share one opponent in UW-Platteville with decidedly different results: UWW won a hard-fought battle in Platteville, 30-24, but the Muskies couldn't get their offense moving at home, falling to UWP 0-56 and managing just 160 yards.
Whitewater is one of the few teams considered a championship favorite, as they've made nine championship games and are 31-3 in home playoff games; Lakeland, unfortunately, has yet to win a playoff game in their four postseason trips. The Muskies have played their best football recently, however, and managed 30+ in their last five games, 50+ in their final two; Whitewater hasn't been as dominant, heading to OT against River Falls and needing a big second half to pull away from Stout. Chances are good the Warhawks' home win streak won't end here, but there's always potential for a shocker.
