ESU got beat by Del Val...Del Val won six matches...

Thats a DIII team beating a DI team handily.  

Any thoughts?

It happens Augsburg has done it several times. They pounded on NDSU already.

Del valley has a solid team this year as well.

What is the situation at East Stroudsburg?  How many scholarships do they have?  Paid assistants?  I realize that DIII has "zero" scholarships, but some D1 schools operate pretty close to that level.

Thats kind of a weird issue places like Augsburg have "Augsburg Grants"....

But its not a scholarship  ;)

My 8th grade coach was from E. Stroudsburg. Tony Ptak. He took 3rd at 158 in DII his senior year. Being a Penn kid in Oklahoma, he took a lot of grief for "talkin funny".

I think ESU only has like 3 or 4 scholarships.

They are also set to drop to DII next year from what I hear.

And Del Valley is a great DIII team...still.

Sucks for your confidence if you're from ESU, to only win four matches against a DIII team.
