b) Award no athletically related financial aid to any student; C) Encourage the development of sportsmanship and positive societal attitudes in all constituents, including student-athletes, coaches, administrative personnel and spectators; d) Encourage participation by maximizing the number and variety of athletics opportunities for their students; e) Assure that the actions of coaches and administrators exhibit fairness, openness and honesty in their relationships with student-athletes; f) Assure that athletics participants are not treated differently from other members of the student body; g) Assure that athletics programs support the institution's educational mission by financing, staffing and controlling the programs through the same general procedures as other departments of the institution; h) Assure that athletics recruitment complies with established institutional policies and procedures applicable to the admissions process; I) Provide equitable athletics opportunities for males and females and give equal emphasis to men's and women's sports; J) Support ethnic and gender diversity for all constituents; K) give primary emphasis to regional in-season competition and conference championships; and l) Support student-athletes in their efforts to reach high levels of athletics performance, which may include opportunities for participation in national championships, by providing all teams with adequate facilities, competent coaching and appropriate competitive opportunities . the purpose of the NCAA is to assist its members in developing the basis for consistent, equitable competition while minimizing infringement on the freedom of individual institutions to determine their own special objectives and programs . the above statement articulates principles that represent a commitment to Division III membership and shall serve as a guide for the preparation of legislation by the division and for planning and implementation of programs by institutions and conferences . student-athlete advisory Committee As members of the uMAC and NCAA, the Northwestern Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will seek to unify athletes and teams in the athletic department .

PAul, Minn . -- the game is already over, the home team has won . Now it's time to decompress . At the end of one hallway, a pair of lineman sit slumped against a wall, nodding off in exhaustion . On a quiet stairwell not far away, a receiver buries his head in Scripture . In the trainer's room, players sprawl out on any open piece of carpet they can find . And upstairs in the coach's office, five men sit around a platter of sandwiches trying to figure out just how this is going to work . On any other normal fall football Saturday, the day would be over for the Division III Northwestern College Eagles . Already having disposed of trinity bible College 59-0, they should be heading home . to their wives . to their girlfriends . to an afternoon of watching college football from the couch . but this is unlike any other Saturday in college football history . the Eagles' work is only half finished . In a little less than four hours, 6 miles down the road, there's another game to be played, another physical, mental and emotional peak to be reached . "this is strange," coach Kirk talley says . "We should be celebrating . I should be getting ready to go out for a nice dinner . Yet I've got all these players still around . "It feels like a sleepover ." Normalcy is nowhere . Inside the equipment room, a student worker throws socks, t-shirts and underwear in a dryer, hoping they will be ready for the next game . Inside the locker room, where players are unwinding after the rigors of one game, coaches are passing out game plans for another . What the Eagles are doing is believed to have never been attempted before in modern college football history . And for good reason . Football is a game that most teams get an entire week to recover from . the Eagles are barely going to get a three-hour respite . "I have to be honest," sophomore lineman Clint Wolcyn said . "Now that it's actually here, this feels pretty weird knowing we have to play again . but we'll get some rest, get some food and then go out there and hopefully take care of business again ." Said receivers coach Scott Hvistendahl: "the way I look at it, it isn't every day that you get to see a bunch of pants dirty before a game ." the idea of a doubleheader was the brainchild of Northwestern athletics director Matt Hill . While Hill was struggling to find a 10th opponent for the Eagles' 2005 schedule, Macalester College called inquiring about a game on Oct . 8 . After consulting with talley, Northwestern's president, the team's captains and the athletic directors from trinity and Macalester, Hill decided the Eagles would play two games in one day . He had no idea it had never been done before . "then I called the NCAA to ask them if it was any sort of a rules violation and they laughed at me," Hill said . "And they said it might be next year ." When the 2005 schedules were printed, everyone from alumni to parents called Hill to tell them there was a misprint . "I'd tell them, 'there's no misprint,'" Hill said . "'We're playing two games in one day .'" the support of talley, who takes pleasure in being an out-of-thebox player's coach, was key . this is a man who led his team in Simon Says on Wednesday, a man who lost his starting running back the day before the conference championship two years ago after the player tore up his knee playing a football/kickball hybrid game before a Friday walk-through . It's a game that the team still plays today . "Most guys, that probably would have been the end of that," talley said . "but guys know I'm a little goofy . It's just a game . I take more pleasure in the journey ." No journey has been quite like this . Especially here . Northwestern, a quiet Christian college of 2,600 students in a wooded neighborhood on the 8 \\ NORtHWEStERN COllEgE EAglES In the news north side of St . Paul, is a place where spiritual growth is just as important as intellectual growth . It's a place where students sign contracts pledging not to drink, smoke or dance . When a player on either team is injured, Northwestern players fall to their knees, hold hands, bow their heads and pray . And it isn't uncommon to see an entire offensive or defensive unit holding hands on the sideline and praying between series . before Saturday's game against trinity, assistant coach beau taylor handed each one of his linebackers a piece of chalk . One by one, in front of their teammates, they went up to a chalkboard and wrote the answer to taylor's oversized question: What Will You give? In a room overwhelmed with silence, one player wrote "love ." Another, "respect ." Yet another, "intensity ." then senior defensive back Dan Pazurek stepped to the board and wrote, "all the glory to Jesus Christ ." It's that passion, that ability to "play for an audience of One," as the coaches so frequently repeated through the week, that talley believes made the turnaround from one game to another possible . "We have a higher power that we call upon," talley said . "that's what we have to do . I always tell our guys, 'believe the unbelievable .' I never thought when I said that, it would mean two games in one day ." the biggest challenge, from beginning to end, has been logistics . In an effort to simplify things for his players and his staff, talley broke the team and coaching staff up into two groups -- trinity and Macalester . "to try and prepare everybody for everything, there's just no way," assistant head coach bryan Johnson said . "So this is the way we decided to do it and we figured we'd deal with the surprises as we go ." the surprises, as it turned out, came away from the field . One of talley's major concerns late Friday was whether or not the team's battery-operated headsets would last two games, so the coaches elected not to use headsets against trinity . then talley worried about players not having enough clean socks for two games . So he went to target on Friday night and purchased $100 worth of socks . Socks, as it turned out, that only came up to the calf . Most of his players would not wear them . because there were two games, everyone who was healthy on Saturday played . this includes junior running back Joe Steffenhagen, who was born without full use of his right arm . Steffenhagen had served as team manager the past three seasons before asking talley if he could play this year . Sure, talley said . And late in Saturday's win over trinity, coaches put the starting offensive line back in the game as Steffenhagen followed their lead for an emotional 4-yard touchdown run . "I guess I learned what it feels like when somebody hits a gamewinning home run and all your teammates come up and hit you in the head," Steffenhagen said . "I have a bit of a headache now . but this is a dream come true for me . I can't believe it ." the doubleheader also was an opportunity for 40-year-old Harold Hicks, a physical education major who joined the team in hopes of learning how to someday become a coach . Hicks had three tackles against trinity, "one for each tylenol he takes before and after every game," a teammate quipped . So why did Northwestern do this? Hill insists it wasn't about publicity, money or embarrassing opponents . Hill just wanted to give his kids an opportunity to play a 10th game, like most every other team in Division III . All anybody had to do was look into talley's eyes as his team gathered around him following its 47-14 victory over Macalester in game 2 to understand . there, his eyes welling up from the fall chill and the emotion of the moment, he revealed what this day had meant to him . Some 10 minutes earlier, senior defensive lineman Nick Wolcyn had intercepted a pass on the Macalester 25-yard line . Stumbling toward the end zone, his team ahead 4014 with 8 seconds left, Wolcyn seamlessly pitched the ball to fellow defensive lineman Justin Payette, who caught it in mid-stride and marched in for his first career touchdown . the play touched talley . "It would have been easy to hold onto the ball, to take all the glory," he said in his postgame speech . "but Nick thought to himself, 'No . Justin, I'd rather have you score .' We've had a lot of epitomes today, but moments like that, that's what it's all about ." When the day was finally complete, when the clock crept past midnight, the players finished up their pizzas and started heading home, the low-key, even-keeled talley tried to put into further context what had just taken place . In less than 12 hours, his team had gone from 3-2 to 5-2, and one more win next weekend would clinch the upper Midwest Athletic Conference championship . the Eagles had outscored two opponents 106-14, racked up more than 1,000 yards of offense, but more importantly as he saw it, had grown as men . His body was sore, his back ached and his mind was absolutely shot . "It was a great day," talley said, "but I'm glad it's over . It sorta reminds me of vacation -- you love being away, you love something different, but it sure is great to get back into your own bed . I'm ready for my own bed ." ever try someAs for whether or not the Eagles will thing like this again, the overwhelming consensus, from Hill to the coaching staff all the way down to the players, was a resounding "no ." Fun once, a royal pain twice . Only there's one problem -- Hill has yet to find an opponent for a 10th game next year . "Oh no," he said . "I'm done with 'I've got an ideas' for a while ."

Head coach Kirk talley (6th season, 37-14 overall) will guide a team that returns 8 starters on the offensive side of the ball and 5 defensive starters . the Eagles welcome back 44 letter winners and 13 all-conference performers from the 2005 squad that boasted an 8-3 overall record and unblemished 7-0 uMAC showing . Northwestern is ranked No . 5 in the pre-season listing for NCCAA by Don Hansens National Football gazette . Headlining the list of returning players is pre-season All-American sophomore wide receiver Kyle thomforde (Northfield, Minn .), who will look to build upon an impressive debut last fall in his freshman campaign . A first-team all-conference honoree, thomforde recorded 36 receptions in 2005 with 788 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns . Kyle totaled the second most receiving yards in a single season in program history and set a new school record for receiving touchdowns in a single season .

Anfinson was second on the team in tackles a year ago with 51 tackles, 3 .5 tackles for a loss, 2 interceptions, and 3 forced fumbles . Also returning to the defense with experience is senior linebacker David Schussman (Amery, Wis .) . Schussman notched 37 tackles last season with 1 intercpetion and 4 pass break-ups . the 2006 recruiting class appears to be one of the strongest in recent years with 37 freshmen and first-year players joining the Eagle program this fall . Highlighting the list of newcomers on the offensive side of the ball are offensive lineman Marshall Sartain (White Oak, texas), running back Caleb baker (Princeton, Ill . ), quarterback Jake Stroud (basehor, Kan ./Hillcrest Academy, Minn .), and running back Ryan long (Dassel, Minn ./Dassel-Cokato) . Sartain was an all-district selection, baker was a second-team all-state selection, Stroud collected conference MVP honors and was named an honorable mention all-state honoree, while long was a two-time all-conference, league MVP, and all-state selection during his high school career . top defensive newcomers include a trio of linebackers in ty Crabtree (Fergus Falls, Minn ./Hillcrest Academy), Willy Miron (St . Croix Falls, Wis .), and Andrew Magaard (Ogilvie, Minn .), as well as a pair of defensive linemen in thaddeus thompson (ladysmith, Wis .) and Matt Kramer (Stratford, Wis .) .

However, beginning in 2000, Northwestern emerged as one of the top small-college teams in the state and region . Posting a 25-4 record from 2000 to 2002, the Eagles were consistently ranked in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) top 25 during that time period and appeared in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Victory bowl in both 2000 and 2002 . Completing its 33rd year of existence with the 2005 season, the program has made tremendous strides since its first season in 1976 when Northwestern tallied a 1-6 record . Serving 15 years at the helm of the program, head coach Mel boehland took Northwestern to a new level of competitive collegiate play from 1974-1988 as he earned a 77-56-1 career coaching mark covering the 1970s and 80s . Perhaps few other individuals can compare to Chub Reynolds contributions, not only to the football program but to the entire Northwestern College body . the Eagles head coach in both the 1989 and 1990 seasons, Reynolds testimony and impact on his players, assistant coaches, and others followers was lifechanging . battling cancer of both the hips and the lungs, Chub still dedicated his life to serving Christ through athletics and the players he was entrusted with . though he spent a large portion of his coaching moments from a golf cart and was often carried by his players to and from the cart, he never complained but rather encouraged his players to the very end . In the fall of 1990, after defeating Martin luther 51-0 just a few days earlier, Chub Reynolds passed away and went on to be with the lord . the current football and baseball fields on campus are named in his honor and his legacy as his commitment to Eagle athletics has not been forgotten . Jimmy Miller began a new era of Northwestern football in 1991 and after several years of struggling to put the wins on the board, he saw the fruits of his labor begin to blossom . the Eagles went 7-2 in 1995 and won the conference title as Miller also led the 2000 squad to an impressive 8-2 showing and the programs first NCCAA Victory bowl championship . the 2001 season brought about another new change to the Eagle coaching ranks as Kirk talley took over the head reins . Very few small-college coaches experience the success that talley has boasted at Northwestern, winning back-to-back upper Midwest Athletic Conference (uMAC) regular season championships in 2001 and 2002 with undefeated league records, a north division title in the uMAC in 2003, and another outright conference title with an undefeated league record in 2005 . talley was selected the uMAC Coach of the Year in the 2001 and 2005 campaigns . Over the course of the past five seasons, the Eagles have tallied a 37-14 ( .725) overall record, 32-3 ( .914), conference mark, and appeared in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Victory bowl in 2002, 2004, and 2005 . the 2001 squad posted a 9-0 season record, the best single season performance in school history and the only undefeated campaign in program history . talley currently ranks 1st all-time in career winning percentage and 3rd in career victories amongst former Eagle football coaches . eAgle FootbAll post-seAson historY 2000 First Ever National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Victory bowl Appearance at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio Northwestern 35 vs . greenville (Ill .) 27 NCCAA Victory bowl Appearance at H .H .H .
