    Fairfield upsets MBB 74-69

    With Hicks nicked up, I wish Tyler Gill hadn't transferred out. I thought he was solid in the Elon game last year when injuries/COVID decimated our guard ranks.

    Ambrose let go

    My suspicion is that other FCS teams will be looking to poach our more promising players, some of whom probably had other offers before committing here and will revisit that decision. In a lot of ways, the new coach will be starting from scratch, but if he has a good reputation it won't be as steep a climb as in the old days, when no transfer portal existed. (Having said that, I'd really like to see a strong emphasis on building a foundation of freshman recruits, which Mike London has done at W&M.)

    Ambrose let go

    Ed, no one questions -- or even approximates -- your commitment to TU football. Believe it or not, those of us who have soured on Rob take no pleasure in the disappointing run since 2013 (two semi-successful Flacco years aside). But it's because we support the program that we applaud the change and the chance for better things to come. I look forward to seeing you next year in the stands.

    Hampton preview

    No, of course not. But I appreciate measured honesty: "Like a lot of first-year teams in the league -- including us back in 2003 -- Hampton has had its challenges. But they have some playmakers and we'll have our work cut out for us." (How's that? A long way from "they suck" but also a long way from making them sound formidable.)

    Around the CAA

    Delaware hung with Duke in the first half, down by just six at the break. The Blue Devils put it in gear in the second half, blowing out the Hens. But I have to say that UDel has some nice pieces and looked smoother than we have for a good chunk of the game.

    Volleyball 2022

    Incredible third set -- NE kept fending off match point, with Towson finally prevailing at 30-28. The Huskies were a tough out, and Delaware might be too. The Hens beat W&M 3-2 after gutting out a 3-2 win over Charleston. Despite a less-than-stellar record, they have to be pumped up. Even if we lose, we ought to get into the NCAAs with only two losses. And we beat Pitt, which is in the top 10 nationally at 25-3.

    Hampton preview

    Listening to RA praise Hampton in his Q&A with Spiro, you would think they were leading the league. Typical salesmanship.
  8. NT is putting up POY performances. Please, Nic, keep it up.

    Shocker in the opening round: No. 7 seed W&M beats Hofstra, 3-2, after the pride led 2-0.

    MBB holds on to beat Penn 80-74

    I'm fairly confident we'll improve enough at some point to approximate the level of play we displayed late last year when we won four out of five games by 20-30 points: just dominant play all around, especially down low where CT became a potent offensive weapon. In those games, we were a force. BUT, it concerns me that our old habits die hard, even with a largely veteran group. By that, I mean stretches where "bad Cam" emerges and tries to do too much, committing costly turnovers in the process; too many times when we're flatfooted at both ends of the court; and times when poor free-throw shooting seems contagious. And, frankly, too many times when PS's substitution decisions are head-scratching (a polite way of saying "boneheaded"). Yes, each season is a work in progress, so I'll stay hopeful for now that Mr. Hyde doesn't show up at inopportune times (the CAA tournament in particular) to undo Dr. Jekyll's otherwise good work.

    Thoughts on the rest of the season

    Agreed. RA may be the least self-reflective guy on the planet.

    Thoughts on the rest of the season

    Here's my thought on the rest of the season: Everyone on this board -- those who just read the comments as well as those who contribute them -- email the new AD to register your displeasure. And cc the school president.

    102-21

    Devin Matthews averaged 10.4 yards per carry ... on four carries. Can someone explain why he was on the sideline most of the game while Mighty Mouse D'Ago Hunter (3.4 yards per carry) got the lion's share of snaps? (And where was Mystery Man Joachim Bangda, whom RA described as "another bullet in our arsenal" in his interview with Spiro?) Of course, these and other questions of this sort have been asked by us for years on this board. Please, God, make it stop. Send the bad man away.

    Other Fall Sports

    Field hockey got a 4-1 win over Ohio U. Very encouraging for a program that's just beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.

    Agreed -- this team's continued success deserves great fan support.
