Subject: BS I'm pissed

You mamby pamby idiots, do not play division one schools. It's just embarrassing. Tell me again how it helps us to get hammered by 40 or 50 points so we're nationally known ? Known for what, ridiculous, known to get hammered ? Gees, let's play Syracuse next year and lose by 40 or 50 points....great for the program !! We actually lead Syracuse in the season series until next year, we play them to get some money, they win by 50 next year ? For what ? Morons !!

The best FCS teams play one FBS team a year. If Colgate wants to play at the highest level of FCS, they need to play one of these games a year. Navy is a traditional rival i most sports and has great academics and prestige. It's exactly who Colgate should be playing.

Navy lost 43 straight to Notre Dame before beating them in 2007. Can't imagine those teams would have traded playing Notre Dame for a game they could win--decade after decade. Playing up has defined Colgate football and places that expect more out of their athletes (like Navy).

It may not feel like it but today's game is about Colgate getting better and the only game on the schedule where Colgate has absolutely nothing to lose.

FS:
Write a check to the athletic department covering what Navy just paid them, then maybe you act/sound like a 6 year old and someone will listen.

So which experience do you think the kids enjoyed more- Lafayette kids playing William and Mary at home with Internet TV coverage And losing 34-7
OR
Playing Navy in a big stadium with jets flying over and national TV coverage and losing 48-10?
What do you think the kids would say?

Future, Colgate doesn't need to play teams like Navy to play at the highest level of the FCS. The PL has an auto bid to the tournament. The players might like it and the money is good but, starting the season with a win could do much for confidence building. BTW, I would not have played Syr. again until Colgate had two years under its belt with the full compliment of scholarships.

Going to steal your thread so I do not have to start one for a single post, but I have more BS to share and that is with the field hockey team being outscored 17-4 in 3 games. Total SOG for the season are embarrassing:

'Gate: 26 (13 on goal)
Opp: 89 (61 on goal)

Now 0-3 and another illustrious year awaits. Lord have mercy. Hate to see any Colgate team do poorly. Hope they can right the ship...somehow.

Field Hockey - so what's new. The coach has been there for decades and the results have been the same. Good for the players, if they don't mind but, they deserve better.

Coach is subpar and has been for years. We should drop the sport and use admission slots elsewhere.

Back to football. I agree that the 'Cuse game should have been put off a couple more years. I see both sides of the coin with Navy. In a way the payday and PR are good for the school, helps in recruiting with the CBS package and all, blah, blah, blah. On the other it's disheartening to have a huge one-sided loss at the start. The upside is that it gives the coaches and team a measurement of how much pre-season and off-season practices have got the team ready for the season. A way to measure themselves vs. a good test. Obviously the score was a blow-out. It would be nice if we could have eliminated errors and had a much closer final score.Duh.

Get off your couch & come to a game. Atmosphere was great, Gate tailgate was packed, Annapolis is an awesome town with Gate people all wearing their colors after the game having a good time with the Navy fans, result was as expected. Every player I talked to (current and older) says these are the games they remember. The morons are those that would prefer to complain & not participate!

It's been so long since I've missed a Colgate home game that I don't even remember when it was. Guessing twenty years, might be longer. My first game was in about 1952, as a baby with my parents. So, in sixty three years, I think I've done my share of participating.
