#103413 [FB] Game 11 - vs New Hampshire - 11/18 - 1PM

Posted by Dane Pound on Yesterday, 09:02 PM

So...looking at the FCS bracket. New Hampshire has losses to 4-7 Holy Cross and to 4-7 Albany but still gets an at-large bid.


Unless I'm missing something, Albany had more wins against playoff teams - UNH and Monmouth

than UNH did - Elon.

Hoping we can make as much use out of this game as possible.


Really like to see Clark, Costa, Cochran, Conway and make Hank get ample playing time. Run the offense without relying on Nichols and Cremo and give Coach Iati a chance to coach them up a little bit. Get some extended film playing in a live game so they can go over their strengths and weakness.

Preseason MAAC #1 Iona - Down

Preseason Patriot #2 BU - Down

Preseason Ivy #2 Yale - Down


At the beginning of the year I didn't think we'd get through this stretch undefeated. Not the best night for Nichols. Honestly, kind of glad we could win a game against a solid opponent when he's not playing his best.


Click got his wish for Cremo although still probably too many turnovers if we're going to nitpick.


Another 30 points combined from Stire+Charles. Same number they against against BU. I like that trend.

Ugh. Silly thing.


I for one am really glad we have Oneonta on the schedule now.

We crushed Monmouth, not sure why we were still pressing with 21 seconds to go leading by 24.


Because MAAC  :D

#103163 [FB] 2017 Season Review...where do we go from here?

Posted by Dane Pound on 13 November 2017 - 10:46 PM

Perhaps rumor is the wrong word. My comment comes from two different interviews by Gattuso. In each, he talked about the injury being more than just physical and whether Hanks could do the mental things necessary to return. In one of the interviews he said when and IF he comes back. He was probably talking about this year at the time, but I sensed a hidden longer meaning also.In another interview Gattuso made the comment that Hanks kind of does his "OWN" thing in his own way. Also, many on this blog have used the "If" word when talking about Hanks.


I guess I had a slightly different take on those comments. I thought he was talking about coming back from injury like that. It's a lot of rehab to come back from surgery. There are bound to be some issues after a long layoff - partly trusting the reconfigured knee and partly in the back of your mind, not wanting to go through that whole process again with another injury.


I always though EIH coming back this year was a really ambitious goal and honestly credit him for trying.

Yale will be tough... They are supposed to be very good and desperate.


Starting off the season @Creighton and @Wisconsin. They didn't make it easy for themselves.

#103079 OT: Vermont/Kentucky

Posted by Dane Pound on 12 November 2017 - 04:58 PM

Watching this, i like our team. I bet we out tough them big time.

I agree about our team but Vermont is representing the AE well right now. TBH is fun to watch when he's not playing us.

Vermont looking very much like the preseason #1 right now. This game probably would have been even more interesting had it been Kentucky's first game also.

Danes win! Holy Crap. I don't know how UML didn't score in the first OT.

Conway was pretty good, but he seems like more of a 3 than a 4.


I was wondering that also. If he can play the 4 with his shooting he can create a lot of space for Nichols and Cremo.


It looked like there were times late in the shot clock when the ball went back to Nichols and it seemed like Iona double-teamed him to get the ball out of his hands. I'm guessing he'll see more of that treatment as the season goes on.
