Subject: Undefeated league championship - only 5th time

Congratulations to the team and coaching staff on an UNDEFEATED LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP! I know most would prefer to have something (coaching, play calling, arm tackling, special teams, pass defense, etc.) to complain about but this is a fantastic accomplishment that they should be proud of. I know they love shutting up all of the doubters!

You are dead WRONG red raider
coaching has improved as has hunts game management
thrilled for the kids, thrilled for the coaches
you should learn what constructive criticism is and try to thicken that very thin skin of yours during the off season

He wasn't speaking for himself, but for anyone who would [dare] find something [ridiculous] to criticize. Such a nice atmosphere on here with others who are quick to read - and judge.

Thrilled for the championship and Coach Hunt. The game recap puts some things in perspective:

Colgate is riding a five-game winning streak, and all five wins have come by single digits. The Raiders won by 4 at Georgetown, 2 over Fordham, 9 at Lafayette, 7 vs. Lehigh and 4 against Bucknell.

If we had to play any of these teams again - especially HC, the only team we beat by double digits which has really turned its season around - well, I don't want to think about it!

It would have left a VERY sour taste to have ended the league season 5-1 after defeating Fordham. The idea of 3 co-champions and all 3 getting rings?! No way! Such a terrific accomplishment. So much for preseason polls...unless we're the favorite!

Hope the Raiders get some love this morning on the selection show.

Let the haters hate. It's what they do. Single digit wins? Duh! Good teams win close games. Celebrate the undefeated PL championship and fine tune for the playoffs. Keep the faith and go 'gate!
