Look clearly the biggest bonehead play was on 88 which set us up having to kick the ball from the 20. Then Thompson and P made another stupid call on a short squib kick but or D did not show up and once again 21 got burnt. Sucks for the seniors but it is what it is.

Washington State in the Pac-12 is leading Arizona 55-14 at halftime.

I'd kill for an offense like that. If we had one iota of that we'd be dangerous. Few teams have figured out how to have an explosive offense with a stout defense. Some of the Big 12 teams like Oklahoma and TCU manage to do it from time to time.

Read the Newsday article, especially towards the bottom.  Do you think these athletes love their coach?

I was able to sleep. lol. That was bad...

But if our name gets called in a couple hours everything will be just fine. It's football boys. As much as I wanted to spank Albany - in the back of my head I knew that they always played us tough there and they have played us tough even at LaValle. Its almost as if records don't matter when we these two teams face each other... With that said, did I expect to win last night? Of course I did. There is no way to excuse that kind of loss last night. But at the same time I don't think it warrants SBU firing the coach P. Not me at least.

Delaware loss to Villanova in Newark, DE last night. That's right. They got buried by their rival again in front of their home crowd for the 7th straight game

------->

We had some epic finishes against Albany before in LaValle Stadium (including FCS playoffs). Everyone remember Dominick Reyes who saved the game to move to the second round? Those memories will never fade

That's the game that probably gets us in.  12:30 will be nail biting time.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

I wouldn't worry about being in. I'd be shocked if we weren't in. We're not great, but everyone else is worse. The big question is where do we go? If we host the first round, we would probably get Monmouth at home. If we don't host, we could be send to Maine or Colgate in the first round, and potentially face the other in the second round. Colgate or Maine could also be a second round destination following a victory vs Monmouth.


As for the loss, I'm done excusing Coach P. He's been losing important games at the end of the season for years. I can recall several choke jobs vs Liberty in the Big South days for instance. It's just what he does. If he gets us to the quarterfinals the heat will let up a little bit, but does anybody honestly see this team getting that far?? Unless we get an incredibly fortunate bracket, I have a tough time seeing it.

6 CAA teams get the nod. The committee obviously respects/values the conference. I like it.

Woohoo!  Talk about drama; last team announced. When Delaware was announced, I was optimistic, but when Elon was 5thh Caa team announced, thought we were done. Congrats to the team. After losing a must-win yesterday, they’ve been given a reprieve.

If anything, Elon being in was what made us a lock IMO. I didn't begin to freak out until I saw Jacksonville St. vs ETSU as Maine's play-in game. That's when I was like "oh ****, we're done."

How the heck did a 6-4 Elon team make it in. That's wrong! Give someone else a chance!!

The committee respects the CAA and what Elon was able accomplish in the conference. I don't mind them being in.

The biggest headscratcher is Incarnate Word. A six win team in a conference as bad as the Southland shouldn't be in at the expense of a seven in Valley team like Indiana State. That's complete crap. The Softland is a joke of a conference. Lamar at least was on a six game winning streak, so that I can understand. Even them though I have to somewhat question as Monmouth was there at 8-3 having finished 2nd in the Big South. Their only losses were to FBS Eastern Michigan, and two top 5 teams in Kennesaw State and Princeton.

In all honesty, Indiana State and Monmouth should be in. Incarnate Word, and one of Lamar or Elon should be out.

If you had any doubts about this, see today's second half performance.
