Of course we should try to get home playoff games if the goal is to advance in the playoffs. Our home playoff record is 3-0, and away is 1-9. Even with our best efforts it will be rare when Colgate is in a position to host a playoff game, and it is a disgrace that we forfeited those opportunities in the past. And yes it is evidence that the anti-fb attitudes were real. The good news, if true, is that we finally bid for a home playoff game. It is a sign that Vicki gets it and has influence.

I also agree that Vicki has done a great job with our fb schedules. I would be delighted if we played all of our games at Kerr. I am skeptical that we will continue to get Richmond and Furman, and eventually James Madison and Delaware, to come to Hamilton to play in front of a few hundred, as Lehigh did last week in the most important home game in 7 years. If James Madison prefers to play a game with us in front of 20,000 in Virginia, rather than in front of 500 in Hamilton, we should understand and not say the hell with 'em. Yes we need to beat good teams, even if it has to be on the road, not only to have a shot at an at-large bid but to improve our chances of being awarded a home playoff game.

>you are right on.

Also, in the sixties we generally had three home games. Homecoming, fall party and parents weekend.
