    We better start the GoFundMe 😆 Its going to take some highly motivated and well heeled donors to bite off that 5 million dollar fee, but I guess anything is possible. That door you just heard closing is Delaware leaving the CAA, as I have little doubt they can pony up the 5 million. Then, where does that leave us?

    If I’m reading this correctly, in addition to the prohibitive buy in fee, we would also have to have 16 different sports teams, and would have to offer 210 scholarships (over what period of time I’m not sure) which would have to cost 6 million dollars. Do we even have 16 different teams? Probably doesn’t matter, as I don’t see how we would pay the buy in fee. Perhaps I’m missing something, but it would appear we will be relegated to FCS in perpetuity, if this is enacted

    First Fall Scrimmage Update

    So, the opening game is 5 weeks away and Conway is almost certainly out for the season (his trial date isn’t until February 4th); Watson is out for the season; Cole (who I had great hopes for) appears increasingly likely to be headed for a redshirt and we don’t know if Tarke is going to be cleared by the NCAA. I mean even the most optimistic of us would find it challenging to be brimming with optimism, given all this
  4. The East German judge only gave him a 7.5. Lousy commies 😆. I thought he stuck the landing myself 😆
  5. 565 yards total offense, including over 300 yards on the ground, 3 guys with over 70 yards rushing and 5 TD passes. BTW, I was personally happy to see Rishon Holmes get some action today (he ran that reverse in the 1st half that came up a bit shy of the 1st down) as he and I attended the same HS, Milford Mill, though many years apart 😆. And where is 2012?🤔
  6. Wow, just wow. We didn’t just beat UNH, but we had to overcome a 2nd opponent today…the refs. Two brutal calls-the offensive PI that wiped out, temporarily, a TD and the phantom roughing the passer call. I sincerely hope the refs are just grossly incompetent, otherwise there’s a bribery or point shaving scandal afoot. My random takeaways: (1) I’ve been a major detractor of our QB, but I’m happy to eat a heaping portion of crow today. Other than that INT in the 1st half, he was a dynamic playmaker, both through the air and on the ground. Let’s see if he can build on today, moving forward; (2) Running game was great today. Matthews chewed up chunks of yardage and you can’t say enough about the game Hunter had; (3) I suspect #’s 1 & 2 have a great deal to do with the play of the O-Line today; (4) We seemed to have found a TE in Runyan; (5) Kudos to our WR’s, especially Perkins, aka OBJ, for making some big time plays. Too bad Thompson got cheated out of a TD; (6) As porous as the D was at times today, they came up huge at the end of regulation and in OT; (7) No doubt in my mind that this was the biggest W for the program since 2013; (8) Our special teams are a hot mess, though there was the blocked FG at the end of regulation play; (9) Some of our play calling on offense is maddening at times. Like when we come up to the line and just stand there for 20 seconds, giving opposing D time to catch their breath. Also, some questionable clock management, like running the ball (and chewing clock) when we’re trailing near the end of the game; (10) The personal fouls on D have to stop. To some degree, these mind numbing penalties are a reflection on the coaching staff; (11) The decision to kickoff to UNH’s star return guy at the end of the first half was mind boggling. If we had lost, that horrible decision would have been largely attributable to such an outcome; (12) Whatever today’s outcome would have been, it was also something I think has been sorely lacking in TU football not just this season but in seasons past…FUN & entertaining. I want to win every game (totally unrealistic of course) but, if we’re going to lose some, let’s at least be entertaining. Shootouts (in football) are exciting, especially when, like today, you win; (13) I’ve been very critical of Shinnick, but, at least for this week, all is forgiven Pete!!😆

    Albany beat Morgan by 6; we beat Morgan by 10. Sounds like the Albany game will be a close contest

    Our 10/7 game is at 4pm. If the Orioles do wind up hosting a playoff game that same day, it would presumably be a night game, which means anyone who has tix to both games is almost certainly going to opt for the O’s. Even some people without O’s tickets will pass on the TU game, in order to go to O’s watch parties and the like. We are trending towards really poor attendance this season, between the weather and now this. The DE game will wind up being the biggest attendance game, due to DE fans. I suspect attendance at the last home game, on 11/18 vs Rhode Island, will be sparse, especially if we’re coming into the game with 2-3 wins. Plus, it’s right before Turkeys 🦃 day

    You obviously didn’t get the no cursing policy memo 😆 We got Duquesne’d yesterday, especially in the 3rd Q. So, the off-season will be telling. He decided to ride with Ambrose’s guys this season and it’s probably going to result in a 3-8 season, at best. He needs to clean house in the offseason and bring in his own guys. Frankly, none of this explains why he didn’t at least bring in a competent transfer QB & for some inexplicable reason decided to hitch his wagon, for this season, to the guy he did.
  11. NCAT is 0-3 and has been outscored 92-25. We might have a chance against them & Albany, as you said. So our ceiling appears to be 3-8. And yes, we are probably facing some serious beatdowns
  12. NSU with 5 guys over 40 yards rushing. That’s 1970’s Oklahoma wishbone stuff. And NSU came in today giving up 7 yards per rush on D. We avg’d 4.5. Meh. And our “Air Coryell” passing game was typical-a little over 50% completion %; 200 yards; 0 TD’s and 1 INT.

    Good luck marketing this dreck to prospective ticket buyers next season. It’s one thing to be awful, it’s another to be awful + boring as hell. This is after all supposed to have an element of entertainment to it. I’m a sap, so I’ll renew my season tickets, but it’s getting increasingly more difficult to justify spending discretionary money on this product

    I could have chosen pitiful, pathetic, inept and embarrassing, but whatever. Folks, we just got trucked (I don’t care what the final score was, we all know we were manhandled) by a MEAC team, picked to finish 5th, in a 6 team conference. We lost to a team that lost their season opener to a D2 team. I don’t want to hear about the weather. Last time I checked, it rained on Norfolk too. We gave up 350 rushing yards. Let that marinate for a moment. Here’s some of the other lowlights: 2 defensive offside penalties; 2 unsportsmanlike penalties; a blocked punt negated by a penalty; a comically bad 2 minute drill to end the game. Much of this has to be attributed to the coaching staff. Our running game primarily consists of running a 5’4 RB into the line. Our passing game is dinks and dunks, with no downfield threat. Our starting QB is mediocre, to put it charitably and since they won’t put the backup in, we can only assume he’s even worse. The offense is completely unimaginative and wholly unproductive. TBH, I don’t see how we win a game the rest of the season. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and mine is that this was a bad hire. I’m not trying to hear about first year honeymoon after today’s debacle. A near 60 year old coach, with limited D1 experience and no recruiting chops in the DMV is a bad hire. He had oodles of time to hit the portal and what did he bring in? I have to question Eigenbrot’s judgment at this point. This was an opportunity to hire a young aggressive coach with ties to the DMV. This is on him.

    Let’s face it, given the weather today, there’s probably only going to be a few hundred people at the game. Few, if any, students are going to go, and realistically can you blame them? Only the heartiest of fans and/or relatives of the players will be willing to subject themselves to this kind of weather
