Linfield bigger in Midwest than Montana

12 Dec

I'm not really sure why, but in this morning's Cedar Rapids Gazette Linfield's victory over Rowan in the NCAA Division III semi-finals got top billing in the NCAA football playoffs story. The story was actually three briefs on three semi-final games under a common headline: "Linfield blanks Profs for shot at D-III title." I guess it was because the QB set the NCAA single season TD record or something. Still, it is a surprise to see your small college alma mater mentioned in a medium-sized headline in a Midwestern paper since Montana's victory in NCAA Division I-AA was bigger news in terms of the size of the schools. I guess Linfield is just cooler.
