Finlandia's Football Schedule

Postby amped0808 » Fri Mar 27, 2015 9:12 am

Here is their schedule for their inaugural season.

9/5 vs Alma
9/12 @ UW-Oshkosh
9/19 @ UW-Whitewater
9/26 vs UW-Stevens Point
10/10 vs Maranatha Baptist
10/17 @ Buffalo State
10/24 vs Trinity Bible (ND)
10/31 @ Maranatha Baptist
11/6 @ Trinity Bible (ND)
11/13 @ Mount St. Joseph (OH)

I only see two maybe three wins coming from this schedule (possibly a sweep of a terrible Maranatha team) provided they survive the three week WIAC gauntlet.

Finlandia's 24-man football roster begins spring practice


HANCOCK -- McAfee Field is filled with the sounds of football. That's right, Finlandia's men of fall are getting a spring session in the sport they love on the field that's just five months out from hosting Finlandia University's first NCAA Division III football game (Sept. 5 vs. Alma College).

The spring practices for the Lions football team means all 24 of the players, and the full coaching staff, is on the field together for the first time, building the culture needed to shape a successful program.

"These kids haven't gotten to play a game yet this year, but last fall and now this spring they're out here working hard getting ready for September," coach Tim Driscoll said. "I'm proud of the hard work they're putting in."

The initial roster only includes students on campus, and will be much larger when the team opens camp late this summer. This year's group includes nine students coming from Upper Peninsula high schools, one from Texas, one from Wisconsin, one from California and 12 from downstate Michigan.
