Subject: Football @ Cornell 10/3

So I have a little more optimism to start a thread early...

The Big Red played Yale as closely as we did and fate gave them the same result. Their passing game was better than ours, but our running game is starting to click. If Melville is on - run or pass - it could be another needed win for the Raiders on the climb to .500.

Article on our web site says some players were added or switched positions and the result was great, but getting out of the gate faster would give us some breathing room and not make us rely on 4th quarter heroics or 'help' from the other team. Losing the coin toss means having the first opportunity to put points on the board. Giving the ball right back is a waste, only to have the other team get it again at the start of the 2nd half.

Looks like we need to keep an eye on Luke Hagy (RB) and Collin Shaw (WR), not to mention our own penalties. Video broadcast here:


Might be a good purchase to keep since we play at Princeton the following week; just remember to cancel afterward. That game makes me more nervous.

Go 'Gate

Weather forecast for the game has improved. May not be raining and temp around 50. Anyone know how this game ended up on a Friday night? I notice that Harvard and Georgetown are also playing on Friday night. Experiment on attendance?

I chatted with the Cornell AD today at lunch. Yes, this is an attendance experiment. Apparently, a 7:00pm game time doesn't cut into prime partying time too much and students will be awake for the game. It's also employee day at Cornell.

Friday night games are for high school. Then there's nothing else to look forward to on the weekend...unless you have hockey!!!

(1) The men's ice hockey team plays at Mercyhurst Sat/Sun, so you have that to keep you occupied.

(2) For those of you planning to purchase the video feed for tomorrow night's game, you can buy a 24-hour pass for about $10, but the better option is to buy the league-wide 1-month pass for about $16, as that will also get you the Princeton game on 10/10. You will have to remember to cancel the subscription after both games, or it will auto-renew. That said, if you watch both football and men's hockey, buying a 1-month league pass then letting it auto-renew in early November is recommended, as that will then get you the hockey games at Cornell, Brown, and Yale on 11/13, 11/19, and 11/20 - that's 3 games for $16!
