(KMAland) -- Dr. Ted Goudge, a Shenandoah native and Associate Professor of Geography at Northwest Missouri State University, has released his latest sport geography map.


With the Bearcats starting practice this week for the much anticipated 2019 season, it’s time to turn our attention to Division II college football. This proportional symbol map is based on team success over the past decade. One point is awarded for each round a team makes during the post-season playoffs. Six points are possible if a team wins a national championship. 60 points would be the maximum possible if a team won a title each of the ten years. Northwest leads the nation with 37 points, followed by Minnesota-Duluth and Minnesota State-Mankato with 20 each. Then Grand Valley State, Valdosta State and Colorado State Pueblo with 19 each. 90/172 or roughly half of Division II teams made the playoffs during this time period.
