DWT;WT Week 13: Your Guide to the Weekend’s College Football Games (and more)

New, 28 comments

This week, we introduce the newest Division 1 football and basketball programs, and...my word, there’s some terrifying shit here.

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Indiana Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve done my good deed for the day, settled back on the couch with a Summit Dark Infusion and some egg nog in my coffee, and it’s time to lose weight by osmosis—that’s how that works, yes? I’m very scientific—until I pound back a couple pounds of turkey and stuffing in the name of ceremony.

In putting together all the basketball games—and subsequently modifying the schedule because fully 14 of the 39 today have been canceled, rescheduled, reworked, or postponed—and looking at Our Lord and Savior Kenpom, I was reminded: WE’VE GOT SOME NEW FRIENDS!

Four schools have made the jump to Division 1 basketball this season, and while they’re surely on some random provisional schedule for when they can play in the NCAA Tournament—none are making the jump to FBS football, either—I don’t care about that. I care what weird shit we can learn about them and where we can watch their ga—

—oh my god, there’s a “tradition” that involves someone in a Scream mask walking around campus at one of these schools.

Bellarmine Knights

Who: Bellarmine University
Where: Louisville, KY
Conference: Atlantic Sun
Football?: No.

Bellarmine has been playing D-I lacrosse since 2005, so perhaps they’re familiar to a couple of us. To the rest, they’re a private Catholic university founded in 1950 in Louisville. They do bring some athletic success to the ranks of Division 1, rather than moving up for financial and prestige reasons—the Knights won the 2011 Division II national championship over BYU-Hawaii and have twelve straight seasons of 20+ wins.

There’s not much mockable about that knight, though his name is Valor—leave those names to XFL teams, Bellarmine.

Other Traditions:

  • In 1950 basketball player Ted Wade became the first Black player to integrate a college basketball team in Kentucky.
  • From this student traditions page, there’s, uh, not a ton. It looks like your run-of-the-mill Catholic university in a major metropolitan area. Except HOLD ON, THAT PICTURE:
Bellarmine University

ENHAAAAAAAANCE:

COME TO BELLARMINE; YOU’LL LOVE IT AND I DO TOO

Dixie State Trailblazers

Who: Dixie State University
Where: St. George, UT
Conference: WAC
Football?: Yes (independent).

Seriously, is EVERYTHING in Utah white as shit?

...I know the answer. It’s rhetorical.

Head to the southwestern Utah city of St. George for Dixie State University. Why Dixie? Because the Mormons tried to grow cotton there. And yep, you guessed it! A few of them enslaved African Americans. Because of. fucking. course.

Nonetheless, Dixie State was a Mormon college at its 1911 founding, then became a normal school, junior college, and finally a university in 2013.

Did they originally lean heavily into the whole “Dixie” bullshit?

Nope! They waited ‘til the 1950s—you know, right after Harry Truman integrated the armed forces and as civil rights were becoming a national issue—to adopt the “Rebel” as their mascot, which remained until 2009.

And, friends? Shit was and is just as racist as you imagine:

By 1960, the Confederate flag was flown as a school symbol.” [...] On a “parade float called ‘Gone With the Plow,’ dating from the late 1960s, a man with his skin painted black pushe[d] a plow while a white student, formally dressed with a top hat, [held] what appear to be reins or a whip.”

John Jones and Dannelle Larsen-Rife wrote on behalf of the Southern Utah Anti-Discrimination Coalition, listing many Confederacy-related activities at the College: “black-face minstrel shows (through October 2012), mock slave auctions (through the early 1990s), Confederate flags (continuing to the present), and numerous other associations to the Confederacy prevalent on this campus (The “Rebel” mascot as recently as 2008, True Rebel Night is ongoing; The Dixie Confederate Yearbook into the 1990s).”

Cool. Cool cool cool. Welcome and fuck you, Dixie State.

UC-San Diego Tritons

Who: University of California-San Diego
Where: Where the hell you think?
Conference: Big West
Football?: No—amusingly, the school sponsored football in 1968 only. You will be stunned to learn the team went 0-7.

As Cal State-Bakersfield leaves the WAC to join the Big West—to be replaced by Southwest Utah Junior Racist College and another who we’ll talk about—they’ll be joined by UC San Diego, part of the University of California System and further confusing me during basketball season when I try to type out the San Diego schools.

Thankfully, is there a better city for college mascots than San Diego? I’m all ears, if so, because in San Diego we’ve got:

  • San Diego State Aztecs
  • San Diego Toreros
  • UC San Diego Tritons

That’s a banger of a list. All I can think of for such original mascots in one city:

  • Portland: Vikings (Portland State) and Pilots (U of Portland)
  • New Orleans: Green Wave (Tulane) and Privateers (U of New Orleans)
  • Jacksonville: Dolphins (Jacksonville U.) and Ospreys (U of North Florida)
  • Begrudgingly, New York: Jaspers (Manhattan), Sharks (LIU), Terriers (St. Francis Brooklyn), Rams (Fordham), Seahawks (Wagner), but ruined by Red Storm (St. John’s) and Lions (Columbia)
  • No, Chicago does not make this list, even excluding Northwestern.

Tarleton State Texans

Who: Tarleton State University
Where: Stephenville, TX
Conference: WAC
Football?: Yes (independent).

Oh great, another marginal Texas D-1 basketball team. (Great colors, at least!)

Tarleton State, an agricultural college that’s a part of the Texas A&M system, is making the leap from the Lone Star Conference to Division 1 as part of a broader University effort to bolster its status within the A&M System—the University is also angling to become the seventh U.S. senior military college, a la The Citadel or Texas A&M.

Seems fun! Apparently playing Chicago State in basketball is the way you make that happen.

Thankfully, they have Noted All-Around Good Guy Billy Gillespie—yes, that Billy Gillespie—as their basketball head coach. So this’ll be fun!

Other Traditions:

  • Their original mascot, until 1961, was the Plowboy, which is (1) objectively a better name than “Texans”, but (2) would get the shit mocked out of them. The women’s teams used to be called the TexAnns, but thankfully Texas became more progressive on those issues and made women’s teams the “Texans”, too...in 2019. Progress!
  • Fight song is knock-off “On wisconsin”, which is terrible.
  • Their founder, John Tarleton, allegedly had a pet duck that followed him around campus, and now you can find rubber ducks all over the campus. ...fun?
  • OH WHAT THE HELL

That’s the “Purple Poo”, an on-campus spirit squad who “keep their identities secret by appearing in public in costume” until they are unmasked at the end of their senior year.

NO, Tarleton. NO. BAD Tarleton. What the HELL, Texas?

As we talk about all this soccer, too, I want to brag very briefly on MY FAROES!

That’s right, the Faroe Islands—a rocky set of islands in the North Atlantic who are an overseas dependency of Denmark with under 50,000 people living there—outlasted Latvia, Malta, and Andorra to earn promotion out of one of the D groups of Europa League with a 1-1 tie at Malta a week ago Tuesday.

Will they spend 2022 getting their doors blown off by Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey? Probably. But goddamn it’s fun to watch a small island nation do big things in soccer.

COME ON YOU FAROES.

For as bad as Nebraska’s been, both the last five years AND this year, this has been a three-point game two years running. Can Nebraska stop the run? PROBABLY NOT! Is Kirk “Leave the timeouts, take the pig” Ferentz less likely than ever to let UNL hang around? MAYBE!

But this is the newest, dumbest actual rivalry in the Big Ten—[looks east]—and I, for one, can’t wait to see how this year’s game ends up.

This weekend, it’s Brackley Town FC—the Saints!—who beat Bishop’s Stortford to ensure a date with League Two’s Tranmere Rovers. The only bummer is that this one isn’t at Brackley Town’s home park.

Also, what better way to slowly drift into Black Friday napping than with the grayscale of The Factory in the background as the Eagles try to keep up with Daniel Robertson and the Chips? TUNE IN.

Normally Penn State-Michigan is the kind of game I would eschew. But when these two are playing MAC-level football? This could be a 45-42 kind of shootout with lots of dumb errors, and I cannot wait to find out.

Also, Kent State-Buffalo should decide the MAC East. What a world!

If you want to see TRUE hate today, check out Georgia Southern-Georgia State. Matchup of two fanbases who genuinely hate each other, and of a Southern club who so woefully fucked up their end-of-game at Army last week:
