2008 PRINCIPIA COLLEGE PANTHERS FOOTBALL
(currently in action!)
As always, here's their football homepage. Links will go to a box score once the game is over.
Principia, as reported last year, left the UMAC along with several
other teams. From now on, they'll be competing in the St. Louis Intercollegiate
Athletic Conference. Just to give you an idea how great the
SLIAC is, the preseason favorites are Huntingdon and Greenville.
Both finished 2007 with 5-5 records.
Two of Principia's new conference foes, Huntingdon and LaGrange, play in the GSAC in every other sport. Their out-of-conference slate is beyond the pale. Is this finally the year Principia wins multiple games again?
Let it be noted in advance that the alumni game will not count toward Principia's final record. Besides, they actually managed to lose it last year anyway.
