I was at the game and watched the replay on TW3--so my 2ç. Wyland and especially Bye kept criticsing Fiacchii for a second sub par game. I think they are wrong and the final numbers bare this out. Also, King dropped a wide open touch down pass that would have made the numbers even more impressive. Early on Monmouth's pass rush did give Will some problems, but once the coaches play calling reacted to this and the O-Line stepped up, he was superb if you ask me. The D was outstanding all game and except for a fumbled kick-off, the game would have been even more of a rout. Monmouth's "run game" was short passes and their QBs stats. looked impressive (except for 3 picks) because of this. When you factor in or average in no real run game (53yds I think), he was so what at best. In short, except for a disappointing attendance it was an OUTSTANDING and dominating game, and I do not feel we have to be reserved with out praise for this team.


DanesRGreat and "fans of a Great distance", who depend on media for their UA enjoyment/fix, I truly sympathize. Even though I am local I have on at least three occasions ordered Dane Zone only to subsequently cancel for all the reasoned mentioned. Like many of you, I have complained about poor media and poor promoting in general. One blogger was describing a complex procedure how to to get the link up and running and others mentioned checking their download speeds. The casual fan will NOT do these things. While, I know how to check downloads, I did not understand the procedure posted at all and unless one is very tech savy, I doubt most could or would even attempt it. The point being "Fans" whether casual or devote should NOT have to put up with such poor quality and nonsense. TURN THE GAME ON WATCH OR LISTEN. This being said, I think the solution (and I have complained about this many times) is some sort of cooperative program where fans can purchase home and AWAY games from a media outlet. This would allow both local and distant fans to watch/listen to their team of interest. It is totally absurd to have to pay $5.95--$9.95 and to have to go through the registration process every time one want to watch a game. I am not saying the service should be free, but a one time/yearly fee and enrollment for home and away games should be promoted.


So frustrating. So, so frustrating. I received an email from Charlie Veolker who said he would give me a refund and that they've invested in better equipment this year. I guess they are having a hard time getting the new/better equipment to work. My response was I don't want a refund, I want to be able to watch my school's athletic teams play.
