  1. And with tonight's win I am thinking of upgrading Coach Mac's first-year grade from a D+ to a C-. Still, with 24 more TOs tonight, I might keep her at a D+.
  2. lol. I think there is an NCAA bylaw that automatically downgrades you to "Preferred Walk-On" if you are serving time for armed robbery.
  3. You're just on a forum where most of us (probably vast vast majority) have season tickets lol. You should try the UA Athletics FB page or something... That's true. Not a big deal, can dontate them back to the alumni association. Check those PMs!
  4. Also, Samari Springs, CB Son of Shawn Springs, formerly of the Redskins (Can I say that name or is it a social faux pas?) https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/recruiting-insider/wp/2017/01/23/briar-woods-twins-samari-skyler-springs-commit-to-different-sides-of-the-football/?utm_term=.31afc31d999a
  5. THIS...over, and over, and over. Short of signing some BCS transfer stud (which I highly doubt is going to happen), this year I would personally take a shake-up of the coaching staff over a new quarterback recruit.
  6. Fun for you but terrible for the rest of us. Glad that powerhouse isn't on our schedule. We ain't ready lol. That team would put up 80 on us. Almost as many points as the UVM and UMBC teams would put up against that defense. Oh, wait...wrong thread.
  7. Penn State Defensive Tackle!!!!!! http://lancasteronline.com/sports/football/pennstate/penn-state-dt-antoine-white-transferring-to-albany/article_7453bc5e-dc53-11e6-8101-0f8356fdae8c.html 2 years of eligibility!
  8. He may have gotten a sixth year of eligibility after the ACL but I assumed he was graduating. Same situation as Nic Ketter and Jack Forster. That's part of the challenge of redshirting freshmen - if they also get a medical redshirt later in their career, then you're asking them to play a sixth year and that's a lot to ask. That said, I assume that none of those three are returning but they could have all gotten a sixth year - don't know. As I understand it sixth years usually only occur when there are two injury-related redshirts...not when there is a medical redshirt and a developmental redshirt. If you redshirt freshman year for development you get four years of eligibility; if you get hurt it is tough luck...unless it is a particularly lengthy injury.
  9. Yay! Not only a D2, but a crappy one at that!
  10. Holy freaking schnikes...I came across this video on Youtube of LCC begging Fallon to show up: And we've been letting these idiots dictate contract terms??!?!?!
  11. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families. I have had the honor of watching my alma mater succeed in unimaginable ways over the years at the D1 level, and I am pleased that I have been able to share a lot of it with many of you. Sure there have been disagreements over the years but if we are going to be a part of what has been termed "The Big Purple Family" then internal squabbles should be expected...on my end I will just try to be less of the crazy uncle! So, safe travels if you are travelling, best wishes to all, and on Sunday let's finish off this extended holiday weekend with two wins against the other D1 team in town. Go Great Danes! ...and now on to the festivities!
  12. Haha wow very surprised. They actually listened to others in the community and school. So the portable seats, can we being those in again since it was the bag policy that indicated we couldn't bring in seats? Hmm thought this was all UPDs doing. (Snark face) At he Delaware home football game a high-school aged kid walked by me carrying a lacrosse stick and I immediately wondered how UPD didn't try saving me from the vicious attack he could have unleashed on me.
  13. FYI: I just got off the phone with someone in UA Athletics and he told me an e-mail is going out later today that cancels the draconian clear bag policy!!!! Score one for the little people...now onto stadium seats!
  14. Losing Z definitely hurts, but UA has a serious baller in Trpcic. She isn't much of a shooter right now but she showed a lot of confidence distributing the ball in this game, and she has high level quickness and court vision...look for her to put on a good show against LCC. With that said, Stokes still looks uncomfortable and lost out there and she is making way too many simple mistakes to justify increased minutes. Developing her as a viable back-up option is going to be a larger lift than developing Trpcic as a reliable ball distributor.
  15. My nomination: Ilko...although I hear he might not be as loud as he thinks he is!
  16. GG on Coach's Corner: "I expect the majority of our staff to be back and keep the integrity of the staff." I know he hasn't determined anything yet, and even if he had he wouldn't say it, but why did I groan "Nooooo!!!" when I heard it?
  17. UA's Men's Soccer Twitter feed has a graphic showing UA with a #10 national ranking. There is no link to a poll, so stay tuned!
  18. That was just about a perfect effort. Scored early, and then kept the pressure on. The game was definitely chippy at times, but it's the NCAA playoffs and those things happen. The game was the same as the regular season game at Chestnut Hill, with BC's score being the only thing that changed!
  19. Hey, Mr. Zapruder...do my eyes deceive me or is that gum I see packed into Coach Mac's right cheek?
