This week was a week that made me do a lot of thinking about several teams across the country. It is amazing in a week’s time how things change. Several of the teams that I thought would be the best in nation are now struggling to survive their first three games while a few of the usual suspects have now crept into the rankings. One of the usual suspects are the Carroll College Fighting Saints.
The first thing I need to do before I get too far into this is thank the Saints Athletic Association and Bruce Parker for bringing me to Helena for the second time in the same number of years. The Saints Athletic Association is as much responsible for the success of Carroll as some of the administrators. If the college you went to does not have an active booster club or athletic association, get one going because the Saints Athletic Association shows how one school can grow in all areas of their sports. People in these clubs can certainly make big things happen for little schools. Also another thanks to athletic director Bruce Parker for making my stay so great as well as all of the “Carrollites” that I met along the way.
