Like it. Have a couple club shirts from back then that I need to start wearing.

We were cleaning out my closet at home and came across this. Probably haven’t worn it in years. Got it on tonight.

It’s a start. That’s great to hear!

Not sure what you mean about guarantee games as far as what I guess is the NCFA but I certainly understand the tenuousness of availability of players when the roster is limited. Xavier?s earlier club teams played JV teams from Hanover, Thomas More and Wilmington which were not NCFA games. Other non-NCFA games included Notre Dame College from Cleveland and Lincoln University. The former school went D-2 but the school is now closing. Perhaps the schedule could include both NCFA schools as well as others. Xavier?s inaugural club schedule in 2006 featured only three games. But it was a start.

Good news to hear people showing interest each day. Hopefully, some linemen will join up. Club football is a commitment but past experience indicated to me that the previous club footballers enjoyed a level of purpose and friendship that endures even through today. Keep moving forward!

As much as I appreciate the NCAA, Sandy Sanderson, and all of the other members over there as a new club, starting out, we cannot afford to put all of our eggs in one basket, guarantee that we can?t pay. We can?t afford to have guaranteed games right now and people get hurt.

I would much rather be able to have independently scheduled games that may not be at home, but rather at least football is being played we will stream all of our games independently via twitch or some other service so that fans can still get involved because we want to bring you all football .

Hey all,
We have a team of guys, but I will be 100% right now. Finding linemen has been a struggle. However, more and more people are joining every day. Will they stay committed? I'm not sure. We have a kicker. He's pretty solid. Our running back and wide receiver core are solid. Defense is not a man guy who can play it efficiently. However, we have the piece for this season to be successful.

As I pointed out to Christian, basketball is winding down. Perhaps, more interest will arise this spring. Then there is the matter of incoming freshmen. These are the question marks. I recall years back, recruiting freshmen was going well but after Manresa, a number of freshmen switched to rugby. Sure hope the numbers increase as injuries et. al. are variables to be dealt with as the season progresses.

Per an exchanged tweet, Christian reported that the team has 30 players and six coaches. Hopefully, recruiting will bring the numbers up this spring. I imagine some freshman can be recruited as fall approaches and maybe even a few grad students as well. Sounds like a very good foundation.
It’s a start!
