  1. I know it's a bit of trivia but I like these coincidental things . . . such as Karl Mofor's brother Mike-Ryan (I think 1 year older) is the workhorse starting RB for the unbeaten Salisbury State (D-3) Sea Gulls who pounded Union College yesterday 62-41 . . . had 144 yards on 20 carries and 3 TDs . . . I'd love to see Karl and Mike-Ryan as kids playing tag in the yard.

  2. Regarding the FB program, I get nervous whenever anyone says we should win again this week . . .too many disappointments along the way.  Something will have to give: especially in rushing yardage -- Monmouth kept Lafayette to -12 yards rushing (while gaining 223 themselves), but MU also gave up 256 passing (and got 194 themselves).  (Apparently, UA and MU match evenly in home opener attendance, though.)  Street & Smith's picked MU to win the Big South.

  3. How well does Hartford draw usually? I say "usually" because they have special promotion tomorrow afternoon with $1 tickets . . . that's right, $1 a ticket. It happens because Gallagher recently won his 100th game there, so the Ath Dept is selling "100-cent" tickets. When I saw that online at the ticket site, I was so confused that I called the ticket office, had a nice chat with the guy in charge there, and he explained it. Said they are "hoping" for a large crowd.

  4. Aha! My confusion comes from my increasing inability to read calendars . . . I looked at the WBB schedule t hat clearly lists the tournament in mid-December, and somehow I translated that into mid-November (which the Iowa release is about). This is happening with me too frequently but that's another story . . . let's hope the tourney is still on for the WBB (and at the same time, let's hope PR has begun to recover by then) . . .

  5. Has anyone heard anything about what the WBB schedule will be since the San Juan Tournament (both women's and men's) has been cancelled due to extensive damage to buildings, loss of power, and, well, everything else we have read about the devastation in PR. We were scheduled to play our own version of a "Directional Illinois Challenge" -- playing first Southern Illinois, then Northern Illinois. That is still on the WBB schedule available at the UA site.

     

    A Univ. Iowa WBB press release from Oct. 4 explains that the tournament was moved to Fort Lauderdale for Nov. 22-24, but the release gives just the Iowa games and opponents, and does not list other teams scheduled to be in the tournament (such as UA). I did only a quick search because I have to leave soon, so maybe someone else can find more exact info online, or, eventually, from UA Athletics.

  6. Interesting and encouraging for Joe with some of the SU and other talent there . . . and this name from the past: E. J. Gallup, still putting it up and through a lot . . . he must be somewhere in his mid-to-late 30s? Remember that Siena game when he scored something like 40 (most of the team's points, if I remember correctly -- he shot NONSTOP, it seems) . . . was that near the end for Scott Beteen? Remember those dark, dark days early in the program, and the mess Beteen left, and the fortitude and skill and vision that Will had in order to take over and bring us to where we have been and are?
