He scribbled down notes on his welcome packet, detailing personnel changes and tidbits that he thought could be beneficial to remember.

And a lot has changed this season in the OAC -- there are three new head coaches, several new rules, and Mount Union isn’t the defending champ for the first time in a quarter century.
