Who would have dreamed this when we were 0-3 and down 14-3 to HC near the end of the first half? Our third trip to the quarterfinals in a third-century. While Fordham and Lehigh have several playoff wins, I don't believe they ever won 2 playoff games the same year. The unexpected PL title would have been sweet enough, but 3 playoff games? No one will admit this now, but even in 2003, with a 12-0 season following a 9 win year, a #4 seed and home field for 2 rounds, I got the sense from insiders that all we really wanted was a playoff win (especially against UMass and their obnoxious coach), and that everything else was pure gravy. Beating 2 powerful CAA teams in the playoffs was a huge accomplishment.

Hunt has established himself. The kids like him, he's a great spokesman for Colgate with the media, and he obviously isn't "too nice". Vicky has had great influence and I think changed Colgate's view on fb - we're now bidding for home playoff games, the schedule has been upgraded, and even the way she forcefully but diplomatically handled that faculty letter 2 years ago. What a great OOC slate to start the season next year - Syracuse, Yale, and Richmond. With a young team returning, along with a couple of redshirted defensive studs, there's alot to be optimistic about next year. Schollies are obviously helping, and next year is the first with 4 years of scholarship players. Let's hope this year's success builds student and alum interest and improves recruiting.
