The University of St. Thomas... team, led by head coach Glenn Caruso (above), will take on the University of Mount Union tonight in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the Division III championship. The Tommies are 57-7 in five seasons under Coach Caruso and haven't lost a regular-season game since October, 2009.

From an article in the Times:

Directing high-scoring offenses as a coordinator at Division III Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Division II South Dakota led Caruso to his first head coaching job, at Macalester College in St. Paul. Caruso took a winless team with 24 players and went 2-7 and 4-5 in the next two seasons before leaving for St. Thomas in 2008.

Twenty-four players? How many high schools have rosters that small? I wonder how many of those kids had to go both ways. And how bad would you feel if you didn't get to play?
