Brian Wilmer,

The Saint Thomas Tommies were involuntarily removed from the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference by the other conference Members in 2020 effective @ the end of Spring 2021. They were a Div. 3 School who were forced into Division 1 Level Sports & Division 1AA (fcs).

The fact that The Tommies did so well in the PFL in 2021 is a mostly underappreciated success Story.

So their Coach’s Record of 126-21 were all Div. 3 Wins.

They’re starting from Scratch @ the Divsion 1 Level.
