In the last 10 years UHN has averaged 9.3 wins, been in the playoffs all 10 years, with 10 playoff wins. Colgate has averaged 6.6 wins, has 4 losing seasons, and a playoff record of 0-3. Excluding the 8 year Foley/Sweeney era at the height of the gutting, we are at risk for having a losing season for the 3rd year in a row for the first time since the 1950s.

To answer gate's question, we beat UNH the first time we played them in 1986 on the road. And it was during only the 2nd losing season of the Dunlap era, when the effects of the gutting were starting to be felt. UNH was a penciled in win then, now they're a stretch game.

Didn't the horrible forecast and rain keep the attendance down? For those who need to stay overnight to go to a home game, an early season night game helps (I was planning to go until I heard the forecast). I realize there may not be many like me anymore. Perhaps a 4 pm start is a nice compromise.

folks, we are recruiting QBs that run as well as pass and I frankly doubt anybody on the squad will be better than Melville...if you are committed to the read option you recruit QBs that fit into that system...and not to be cruel, but Mooney didn't show much last year...we've got to rethink our entire approach on offense fairly soon and get some QBs with decent arms and pocket presence...the defense looks better...the offense is boring, predictable and not effective...
