Credit to Dick Biddle for establishing a tremendous brand of program with much success and pride. His final season wasn't his best and perhaps he knew it was time to leave and for someone with a similar (yet different) mindset to resurrect a scholarship program. Class act. He continues to tweet and is obviously an avid Raider for life and will always bleed Colgate maroon.

According the the Post Standard, Lafayette landed a great catch that chose them over Syracuse! Saw that Bucknell has a 3-star QB, I think. Is there a link that lists all PL recruits/offers/commits and is as thorough as ours on the Colgate Football Memorabilia page?

Very optimistic for next season with a great core returning. This year also showed the immediate impact of freshmen, like Ives and a few others. Still think most WRs are underutilized in the passing game. Some of the highlight-reel catches in the JMU game are proof of that. Our quadruple-threat running game of Wilkins-Holland-Russell-Melville is something that is money well spent!!! SHSUs double-QB threat is also something you don't hear of very often. It could have helped us last season!
