For the first time since 1991, The Texas A&M-Commerce Lions will be hosting a playoff game in Commerce’s Memorial Stadium. A big deal for sure, but once again, the NCAA gave us the royal shaft. Two years ago, they took us out of the playoffs all together, last year they gave us a shaft seed while Midwestern State got the top seed and a bye. Fortunately, its all about what transpires on the field from here on out. A win over Colorado Mesa would give us a date with Grand Valley State in Michigan the weekend after Thanksgiving. Will be spending the evening researching Mesa and hopefully have a great week of write-ups.
