Tiffin University Football has new plans entering this offseason as they transition into a new conference.
The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is a competitive field of play in all athletics in Division II. Tiffin University has been a member of this conference since 2008. The Dragons say farewell to the GLIAC as they move to local competition.
Tiffin University Football finished the 2017 season with a record of 6-5 at. That record serves as their second above average finish in the last three seasons. The winning could either become a trend or instantly fold due to the sudden change.
All athletic departments at Tiffin University will be transitioning from the GLIAC to the Great Midwest Athletic Conference. Fortunately for the football program they will see some familiar faces within this new conference.
The GMAC was established in 2012. fairly new but host from the East South Central States and Great Lakes. The conference has nine different football programs that compete in it, and a few are former members of the GLIAC conference.
Some of the former GLIAC teams that compete in this league are Walsh, Ohio Dominican, Findlay, Hillsdale, Lake Erie, and Malone Univ.
“I’m excited for the season, even though we still have spring ball coming up soon, it’s nothing like game day,” says junior defensive back, Ross Moore.
Coach Gary Goff looks to lead the men into another winning season as goals for their program rise.
“We have a new trend this off season, Bring The Fire. Nothing but conference championship and playoff goals” Goff said.
The Tiffin University football program has never competed in postseason play since their debut to the NCAA back in the 2008-9 season. However, with the last few seasons ending positive, there is hope.
