We've started the year 0-3 before and had very successful seasons, so don't give up the ship. I agree about the long layoff between home games this year. We definitely need more games in early fall to bring out the fans and take advantage of the weather - which will only go downhill come November. Everyone will be thinking hockey by then anyway.

I have the utmost respect for what the Monmouths and Bryants of the world have achieved football-wise, I just don't like to see their names on our schedule. Army, Navy or Air Force looks better and is a more attractive draw for recruits and alums/fans.
